PSN Store Update: 29/08/12

It’s been a few rough weeks for the European PlayStation Network Store. Dyad still hasn’t made an appearance, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released everywhere except the EU PS Store and now the third episode of The Walking Dead is up on every store and platform around the world except the European PlayStation Store. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD also seems to be absent from this week’s store update, despite appearing on the US PSN Store yesterday. Tony Hawk is skating on to the store, apparently – see below.

We’re not sure what’s going on but customers are loudly complaining, not always in the most reasonable manner or in the right direction, but the displeasure is growing. It’d be nice to see SCEE take this issue in hand and do whatever it takes to make it go away.


Right, enough of that negativity, let’s have a look at the goodies you can grab from the store today.

There’s a new Move party game being released. It’s called Lights, Camera, Party! and it’s built on the Unreal Engine. Basically, it’s a collection of family-friendly mini games set in a wacky gameshow. Looks like a bit of fun and the kids will probably love it.

There’s also the Trial & Unlock for Rock Band Blitz, the Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC and the final demo of PES 2013. The Vita has nothing this week.

As usual, you can click on over to the EU PS Blog to see all the other little bits and pieces.

UPDATE: It seems that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD will be appearing after all… the PS Blog just had a ninja update to include the following:

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD takes the best elements of the classic THPS games and gives them a fresh update for today. Tapping into fans’ muscle memories, the gameplay returns to controllers and focuses on the satisfaction of linking sick tricks for maximum points. Combining sharp visuals and fresh online modes, the feel is cutting edge yet timeless.

We can only assume they forgot about it when they prepared the “Head’s Up” post.



  1. Ok, so it seems like a good update if you are into Uncharted 3’s multiplayer & like buying needless tat, but other than that, it’s a bit bare bones again, isn’t it?

    Just what are SCEE playing at?

    • snap i think. ^_^

    • Yeah, it’s a pretty crappy update. Seems silly that within the first 6 months of release the Vita has had several weeks recently with nothing, not even something small. It’s actually a little worrying.
      It’s a bloody good job that PS+ has been good fo late, otherwise I’d have stopped looking forward to such updates.

      • Ah, you have much to learn young padawan – Elders like myself stopped looking forward to updates months/years ago.

        Now, we just gather & quietly converse on how ‘they were better in my day’. XD

      • Ha ha, too true. ;)

  2. THPS HD has been sneakily added to the blog post btw. It’s £11.99/€14.99.

    • Crikey, its even a couple of quid more expensive than i thought it was going to be… & i thought a tenner was a bit too much! :O

      So going on that, i would presume that DLC packs are likely to be around the £6 mark (depending on the content).

      • Yeah, I was hoping it would be a tenner. As far as I’m aware, the dlc packs are supposed to be $5, so I’d assume they’ll be about £3.

      • It is a bit of a shame that it isn’t to be honest, as i think i have £10 left in my wallet from a birthday gift of a PSN cards, so i could easily justify the purchase if so.

        Not sure i want to add additional funds in just to get it. I have to admit that after seeing a few screens & it bringing back a few memories, i am actually tempted though… Damn you Tony, damn you.

  3. Focusing on the positives, I think I’ll get Rock Band Blitz. Not a bad price at all.

  4. Ooooo Rock Band Blitz.

  5. How do get the Ps1 games? I’ve updated the software and logged into the store on my vita but I can’t find them. I need to play Resident Evil 2 again

    • Wait till the store updates or copy them over from your PS3.

  6. Anomoly Warzone Earth £7.99?

    I know it’s enhanced for PS3 and it’s incomparable to other platforms, especially with he extra mode, but it’s worth remembering it’s part of the Humble Bundle which finishes in 9hrs, if you have any one of PC, Mac, Linux or Android you can grab it as part of their pay what you want deal.

  7. PES2013 Demo 2 for me, that and all the other trials/demos of course.

  8. Rock Band Blitz! Been looking forward to that for a while and it’s a decent price. It’s worth it even just to get 25 new songs in RB3. That’d normally cost £25 so to get them all AND a new way to play for £8.79 is fantastic.

  9. THPS yeaa!!! Been waiting for this YEARS! :D

  10. I really want to rant about CS:GO’s unavailability… still! But I just have to think:
    – At least I didn’t pay for a Walking Dead subscription
    – I have a roof over my head
    – Doctor Who starts on Saturday!

    Yeah, I think that just about works in the right order..

    • yay, Doctor Who.

      have you seen those Pond Life videos they’re putting out, supposed to lead directly into the first ep of the series.
      they’re only about a minute or so long, one each day.

      been cool so far.

      or you could always wait to saturday morning when they’ll show all five together

      • Yeah, saw the “Ood on the loo” today.. odd. Think I will wait for them to omnibus it.

      • maybe it was a Lood. ^_^

    • That’s the spirit!

      • That’s the power of bricks & mortar, plus a special weapons Dalek thrown in!
