Jurassic Park in Europe (PS3)

posted by shaun_purdy1234 on - last edited - Viewed by 1.3K users

Firstly i apologise to anyone who (like me) came here looking for the answer to when JP is going to be released on PS3 in Europe / Australia / etc. If you have then please join me in venting about the lack of information.

So onto my rant, and i really hope someone at Telltale is actually reading this.

I'm aware of a sticky thread with the following comment:

PSN: we are working hard to get the game out on PSN in Europe at the same time as it hits in North America. We'll keep you posted on developments.

I've seen no updates anywhere, that isn't exactly keeping consumers updated. On the contrary i've seen countless times the same question asked (and i'm not just blaming Telltale here it's SCEE aswell) and no answer.

Everytime i come to Telltales site it frustrates me that Telltale seem to either aim their website at the US and don't expect anyone from the rest of the world to visit or they just plain don't see the rest of the world as worth their time. For example on your front page i just read:

PlayStation 3, iPad 2 and Xbox 360 versions also available. Click the INFO button below to find out more.

Having clicked the magical INFO button i see a load of 'info' but no answer, in fact it would seem according to the 'info' that it's actually released on PS3. Again, Europe doesn't count.

So, i ask this one more time.

When can we expect Jurassic Park to release on PS3 in Europe?

  • Tomorro mate. In the UK it has (i think) been confirmed on the 23rd November. So fingers crossed its true.

    Your thread however is great... And true.

  • This is sadly true, I coudn't agree more.. They dont want money from europe, amd the rest of world? Really dissapointed...

  • @jwoody74 said: This is sadly true, I coudn't agree more.. They dont want money from europe, amd the rest of world? Really dissapointed...

    The quality of this comment is extremely poor. If they didn't want your money, they wouldn't have plans for a European release at all, and would actually bar exports of their product to you. If you legitimately want a copy of JP, you need to be patient (Less whininess helps).

  • If you noticed, we were talking about their policy in this website, and how they dont react to our questions. Read before you start talking about poor comments, because you are a inefficient reader..

    Telltale does not discriminate against Europe or any other part of the world that is not the USA (and, by the way, they do not discriminate against the USA either! ;)).
    As far as I understand the process, with PSN releases, Telltale usually submits a build to Sony and then, it's out of their hands. If Sony decides that the build is suitable for release, they set a release date themselves. If not, Telltale fixes whatever Sony needs fixed and submits another build.
    For example, when asked about the Australian release in another thread, Michael from Telltale had this to say:
    @Michael Parks said: It was never announced as coming out on the 15'th in that market. Sony has a build under review now, which we don't expect issues with, but the release date is determined by them. We're hoping it will be up on PSN for you soon.
    There is no reason to believe that the same doesn't go for Sony Europe.
    The lack of news doesn't mean that Telltale is purposefully keeping European players in the dark. It just means that they're waiting to hear from Sony (back in the Tales of Monkey Island days, we would often hear about the WiiWare release on the business day before it happened).

  • I agree with you MacFly but TellTale has a "very special" corporate communication.
    The gave no word about the mount of questions about a potential PS3 disc release, etc.... It is not so complicated to answer : Yes / No / We work on it....
    We waited a long time just toknow which languages would be in the game, etc...
    I work for a news redaction and even if there is some confidential information videogames firms don't want to give to us, they answer anyway...
    Concerning European PSN release, the Telltale communication is a disaster.

  • Well is it out now? Its the 23rd.

  • Well it's not out today. This is what they've said on the EU Blog:

    Good news – its coming very soon and you should see it before the end of the year.

    Bad news – I can’t announce the offical release date yet, sorry.

    However have a look in the PLUS section today once the upload has happened, you will see some good news there about Jurassic Park.

    I'm sorry but if Sony can approve a "build" for release in the US surely they can do the same for the EU?!

    Actually, Telltale's Kevin said the following regarding a PS3 disc release on the 15th:
    @Nikos92 said: Hey everyone! Right now there isn't a plan to release JP as a retail PS3 disc. We're a digital first company and really love downloading games via PSN. I'm not saying there will never be a disc at some point down the line, but there are no plans to do it now. Try the download, I think you'll like it as much as we do!
    @Nikos92 said: We waited a long time just toknow which languages would be in the game, etc...
    Languages were posted in this forum by a Telltale employee on October 28:
    @Nikos92 said: English and German voice and text, French text.
    @Nikos92 said: I work for a news redaction and even if there is some confidential information videogames firms don't want to give to us, they answer anyway...

    Is it possible that Sony's communication is worse?
    A Telltale employee posted the following on October 28 and would probably update the thread if Telltale know more:
    @Nikos92 said: PSN: we are working hard to get the game out on PSN in Europe at the same time as it hits in North America. We'll keep you posted on developments.
    The problem is that the forums are flooded with so many threads about the same subjects that when Telltale replies in one of the thread, they might not necessarily do it in another (thinking that they already did) and because those threads quickly reach several pages, it's not always easy to find the answers you are looking for, which is why it's always useful to check the stickied threads at the top of the forum.
    You want to know which languages will be available?
    Check the FAQ thread.
    You want to know about the European PS3 release date?
    Check the Jurassic Park (in) Europe thread.
    I am sorry that the European PSN version is not available yet (even though not working for Sony or Telltale, I have absolutely nothing to do with it ;)) but I promise you that Telltale has no reason to keep you in the dark and will let you know the release date as soon as they know it themselves (probably in the blog AND the thread).

  • So it's the 23th, all JP Fans in US and PC Gamers all over the world can play the JP Game. No Game for PS3 EU Player in the Store, no german USK Rating, no Date, no official Statement from Telltale.

    In all love to Telltale and the JP Game, but this is totally Fail... :(
