Responding to user frustrations over the Euro PS Store being way-behind on goodies compared to other regions, European store manager Angela Madronero explained that it’s up to individual publishers to release content for the masses.
“We are committed to working very hard to ensure that our first-party content (the games created by our own Sony Computer Entertainment development teams) is published across all the PlayStation-Stores, simultaneously,” said Madronero over on the EU PS Blog. “The decision about whether and when to release a game for sale is in the hands of the individual publisher.
“There are many reasons why our third party partners may not be able to launch content in one region on a particular time/date; this may be due to technical glitches, digital rights issues, localization requirements etc. So the issues are a little more complex than may first appear.
“We know that there is a lot of frustration when content is released on one store but not another. I can confirm that from a PlayStation Store point of view, we are committed to supporting our third party partners in bringing as much content as possible to the European Store.”

Three Speech made its final post today before running off into the sunset.
Over the years, the site published over 1,500 stories, and visitors left over 35,000 comments.
The site is closing because SCEE’s has decided to create its own EU PS Blog.
The site has thanked everyone for the support it received over the years, and hopes that the community will make Sony’s new blog a success.

SCEE’s confirmed that the EU PS Blog will launch this summer, after announcing yesterday that Three Speech is to close later this month.

“There will be a period between the closure of ThreeSpeech and the launch of the EU blog. During this time please check PlayStation.com and the official forums for news and updates on all that is going on in the world of PlayStation.
“We’ll keep you posted with more information about the blog as soon as we have it.”
Sooner the better.
