Poor European PSN store content statement soon?

Semi-Official Sony website Three Speech updated their blog today with information about this weeks European update.

To say this information was warmly greeted is quite an understatement.

The general census from what can be read from the comments left is that many European customers are getting a little unhappy with general content of store updates each week, especially in reflection to the updates other regions have and are seeing.

Three Speech responded with the following comment:

"I know we keep saying this, but some sort of comment from Sony should be on its way."

When, or what this statement will contain is anyone's guess, but people there are not happy at all.

The story is too old to be commented.

Sony can only post what they receive from devs, and some titles need to wait for Rating from euro zone entity, only time can "fix" this and we should see more sintonized stores in future.

Note: Europe will receive GT5 Prologue this November/December, while USA need to wait for 2008, to get them. What then ? Articles about POOR USA store ?

Also Sony homeland, Japan Store don't have half of the demos/content we have, just create one Japanese account and check they are missing lot of stuff, mainly because they don't release nothing w/o being translated first.

I'm not happy too, when I go to USA store I can get Full Games because my european Credit Card is assigned to my European Address, and PSN USA store don't allow me to complete purchases, so I just get demos and free stuff from foreign stores.

But I don't see the need for Statement from Sony, the stores are already made this way due to several variables,

We just need to be patient and wait, while we play the great titles PS3 can give us.

UPDATE: Reply to "AliC":
Sure, you are right, but as I state above, Sony can't update ALL stores due to several variables/factors, people just need to be patient and wait, this will be more democratic with time, for that PS3 need the gamers as we need PS3.

It depends nothing has been finalised on GT5 Prologue.

But that been said this is not the first week the EU has generally had a shocking update.

Lets just compare this weeks update alone.

EU Update - http://www.n4g.com/NewsPend...
US Update - http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...

Can you see the difference, now imagine this nearly every week since its launch, and there is still stuff on the US store that has never appeared on the EU store.

Some people say create a US account (which I have finally done :( ) but its really not something you should have to do.

statement is needed i stick up for the ps3 alot, but the european store is a joke.

They can only post what the devs have given them, they have got loads of stuff check the american store they have 9/10 things we dont have in the past 2 weeks including numerous demo's.

The way i see it is uk and american store should be the same we both speak the same language, obviously you pay with different currencies im sure that can be solved.

This is one of the only few negatives i have as a uk ps3 owner atm

Marty83703670d ago

It will be down to language and rating's been a nightmare to sort out across europe.

hizzy7863670d ago

the best thing to do is to join the american store and download the games from there.

i got the strangehold demo (1377MB) here in the uk and works perfectly.

i have also download:

NBA LIVE 2008 ( must have download graphics are amazing)
TIGERWOODS PGA TOUR 2008
SUPER PUZZLE FIGHTER II TURBO
NASCAR 08
ALL PRO FOOTBALL 2K8
NCAA PRO FOOTBALL
MAJOR LEAGUR BASEBALL 2K7
DEF JAM ICON
FULL AUTO 2
GUNDAM

and they all work .

lots of people are p***** at sony

SabreMan3670d ago

i live in the uk and i also have all those demo's but thats not the point is it, i shouldn't have to open a US account to get the content you have listed, obviously they all work as we all know the ps3 game wise is region free.
We all know it's not as easy as just sticking a US demo on the psn, the European store has to cater for many languages not just English and all the licensing etc, thats the problem being linked to Europe for us UK gamers, same goes for game releases.

this will never change and it's something we should be used to now, however used to or not i'm not happy about it and never will be.

so if i want to moan about it i will even if it's not Sonys fault which i might add it isn't

HOW DID YOU GET DEF JAM ICON DEMO TO WORK???

hizzy7863670d ago (Edited 3670d ago )

jromao -

how do you know we will get pes2008 and gt5 prologue???

AliC -

creating a US account..... its really not something you should have to do.

i totally agree with you mate

but it has to be done

jromao3670d ago

Sorry, maybe somewhat misleading, I mean PES 2008 will be released in europe stores (not PSN) in October 26, but

following Konami info, is expected GT5 Prologue will have TWO version, one for PSN store download and another in Blu-ray, the last version will include more content, probably damages while PSN version will not.
