flOw Trophies Now Live in North America!

Posted by on October 9th, 2009

They have arrived! You can now download a patch to “flOw” that will add wonderfully flOw-themed trophies to your game. The UK & Europe will be seeing them in the next couple of weeks, but we don’t have a hard date yet on when they’ll be out.

Happy flOwing!

I don’t know – you gotta take that question to SCEE!

That would be really nice to us a release date of when you have one because i’m French and I can’t take advantage of the patch … :-/

Thanks Kellee ! ;-P

Thank you Kellee for the heads up! Sadly I live in the UK, so looks like I have to wait for the patch. Is there nothing you can do to hurry up SCEE? Surely there is some pressure you can put on them. It’s ridiculous how we’re made to wait for an update that needs no, or very little modification for different geographical audiences :/.

I am pleased about the trophy patch as it’s been ages since i last played flow, it will be good to get back in to it again…..still playing on flower as well and i got that last april. I hope that that thatgamecompany bring us more titles like these…..it’s the reason i got my PS3, different types of games that are so relaxing to play.

hey there, thanx for the support. i appreciate that even though this was like the first PSN game, you guys are still workin on it and making it better, unlike Calling All Cars which is going to be taken down.

Any news on when Europe will be getting this update?

Comment by: mark

October 26th, 2009 at 4:55 pm

Come on guys, the US got this patch for flow on the 10th of Oct…it’s now the 26th of Oct….you said the UK would get a patch in a couple of weeks……it’s been 16 days, thats more than a couple of weeks in my book…. where’s our patch?

Comment by: mark

October 29th, 2009 at 5:15 pm

Is this site still working….there seems to be no reply to any questions regarding the UK trophy patch!!!! Where is it guys?

i was hoping it would arrive in europe this week, but no luck

three weeks and still no patch for europe? seriously? what the hell is taking so long?

Comment by: Saladin-

October 31st, 2009 at 3:01 am

“In a couple of weeks” ? Still nothing after 20 days for Europe…
It’s always the same thing, this is ZERO consideration fot the european players. With Disgaea 3, which is also a PS3 exclusivity, trophies are not available 4 month after the US launch, it will be the same for FlOw ?

Comment by: Kellee

October 31st, 2009 at 11:39 am

Guys, I’m really sorry. It’s not up to us – it’s all in Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s hands. So it’s not about consideration – you have an entire COMPANY whose job it is to consider European players. I can only tell you what they tell me, which has been nothing.

Comment by: Susuk'

October 31st, 2009 at 12:30 pm

But wait, you have created this patch ? You’ve worked on ?
I find it shocking that SCEE doesn’t have access to your work all Europeans …

There he contacted through a SCEE ? (France specifically)

Thank you, I understand the players and Kellee. ;-)

October 31st, 2009 at 2:42 pm

Désolé du double post.

Si vous désirez écrire a SCEE pour avoir ce patch faite comme moi écrivez leur ici : http://blog.eu.playstation.com/contact-us/

Peut être que cela servira a quelque chose …

Comment by: Susuk'

October 31st, 2009 at 2:43 pm

Sorry double post.

If you want to write a CESG have made this patch as I write them here: http://blog.eu.playstation.com/contact-us/

Maybe it will have something …

EDIT: Damn, I have not translated …

I think it’s just SCEE….they either have no staff, sit around all day doing nothing or they just hate europe….america seem to get loads more stuff than europe, you only have to look at the US store to see that. If wev’e not got this Flow patch by the end of November…i will buy it from the US store. It just makes me mad to see that microsoft, a company that is still new in consoles…seem to get worldwide releases and get it right yet sony who have been in the console biz for years, still cant get things right…i remember having to wait ages for a game to come to the UK for the PSone…i thought those days were over…then i look at this patch and God of war collection and think…well actually, it’s still the same. Please sony europe…pull your socks up and give us what we want….preferably at the same time as the rest of the world.

This is getting beyond a joke now…it’s been a month since the US got the trophy patch..SCEE are taking the p**s!

Comment by: Scopin-Steve

November 6th, 2009 at 10:50 am

Wow cool ,hopefully the patch arrives soon :)

fl0w is awesome hehe nice one to add Trophies :>
Btw about those release dates; i/we also had to wait 3months on SSF2HD Remix,in US it was out but we had to wait 3months, couse SCEE had to check on something it seemed. Like Mark said; its stunning how they never improved on world wide releases, lol

Other then that, thank you Thatgamecompany for Flower and Fl0w, awesome games! :) ) Cheers

November 6th, 2009 at 8:02 pm

This is RIDICULOUS. Oh yay a patch is coming for flOw. But europeans will have given up waiting by the time it hits, if it ever does. And im sure if it does they wont announce it properly, it’ll just suddenly appear there one afernoon. SCEE are sh*t!

Comment by: mark

November 8th, 2009 at 5:12 pm

Here Here silver leopard…Europe has become a big selling territory for Sony and we still get left behind on just about everything.

November 10th, 2009 at 11:52 am

November 10th and still nothing. did try contacting SCEE but as usual no reply. im just gonna forget about this and enjoy my other games which have trophies right now hopefully by the way 2012 SCEE would just about decide on if to bother with the trophy patch.

Comment by: mark

November 10th, 2009 at 5:23 pm

Sometimes i just wish i lived in the US of A lol. SCEE are rubbish.

November 11th, 2009 at 4:43 pm

Any news on the patch for eu?
Just looking forward 2 some extra goals and ANOTHER playthrough =)

Flower was also really nice.
Do you guys consider it a finished product or could we expect more of the same in the future?

Comment by: Kellee

November 11th, 2009 at 6:18 pm

No official news yet, although I can tell you I finally saw some movement forward on it, so it should be VERY close now… definitely before the end of the year. =/

As far as Flower, we do consider it a finished product, in that we didn’t hold anything back on the initial release. We don’t have anything planned right now, but I’m not going to rule out the possibility of additional stuff for Flower completely!

Comment by: alex_dlc

November 12th, 2009 at 10:29 am

before the end of the year??? you mean befoe the end of the month right? at first it was going to be a couple of weeks, and its been more than a month

Comment by: mark

November 12th, 2009 at 1:30 pm

If sony decide to do patches for games, they should at least work with the developers to get these patches out faster….surely theres not much (if any) difference to the usa version of flow. So the european patch shouldn’t take this long to come. I think i prefered it when PS3 didn’t have trophies, but they do get you hooked to play the games and unlock the trophies in them. It just gets me sooo mad that sony copy the 360′s achievement system and then don’t even bother to set us up with trophies for games at the same time as the rest of the world….SCEE keep letting europe and the UK down all the time.

Comment by: Susuk'

November 12th, 2009 at 2:22 pm

This is good news you bring us Kellee. I see that you do not loose the business is good! I’m on your side.
Continue to inform us please, I began to despair, my confidence even if you tell us that the patch will happen before the end of the year.

I expect this to happen.
Thank you again! ;-)

Thank you for the news Kelle !^^
SCEE must definitly be faster than that, it’s a problem of organization.

Comment by: mark

November 20th, 2009 at 4:36 pm

everythings gone quiet….wheres that patch guys. Give SCEE a kick up the backside.

Comment by: Victor

November 21st, 2009 at 7:55 am

So where is the patch for Europe?!
It has gone like 6 weeks now.. When do you consider “the next couple of weeks” are?

Comment by: alex_dlc

November 24th, 2009 at 6:35 am

tic toc tic toc. i dont want to complain about it, i would just like it if you aknowledged the problem and tried to tell us the cause of such problem. is it that SCEE wont let you update the european game for trophies? or is there a problem with the update itself?….

Comment by: mark

November 24th, 2009 at 6:24 pm

iv’e lost interest in it now….fed up of waiting.

Comment by: Hayden

November 25th, 2009 at 7:11 am

NO TROPHIES FOR EU FLOW -please confirm?

A friend of mine who works for SCEE said that EU flOw is very unlikely to get trophies because it takes an extraordinary amount of testing for each EU state, and flow is regarded as a library title, it would cost too much. Please can someone from ThatGameCompany confirm or deny whether the EU is still gettings trophies. Thank-you please.

Comment by: mark

November 26th, 2009 at 6:15 am

If this is the case then Sony shouldn’t have bothered with trophy support at all. OK trophy support in games is a good thing and it makes you want to play the games more than you normaly would, just to get the trophies in them but Sony seem to be doing the trophy support a bit half arsed…..USA and Japan have loads more trophy supported games than Europe which seems very unfair and almost like they can’t be bothered with Europe half the time. No wonder a lot of PS3 owners are importing games and buying games with a US account on their PS3′s. How hard can it be to test the patch and then change the language for a few territories. It’s almost like SCEE only have a staff of about 5 people, yet Europe is one of Sony’s biggest markets.

for any fanatic gamer, this is straight racism.

Having a good laugh Sony?
Lately i cant b positive about them.

Comment by: Kellee

November 26th, 2009 at 12:37 pm

Mark – you hit the nail on the head. They do not have enough people for all of the games & countries you guys have in Europe.

Hayden – They ARE still happening, and I have hope they will be out before the end of the year. I’m sorry I got your hopes up so early – it really was exactly what was told to me.

Comment by: lefty

November 30th, 2009 at 3:44 am

thanks for the great game. but really, SCEE, even if it is that difficult for them to produce this patch, they shouldnt have shouted from the rooftops how soon we would have it. it began with “patch goes live in fourteen days” to ” okay its been what, three months, we MIGHT do it” graagh

Comment by: mark

December 3rd, 2009 at 4:15 pm

I think SCEE have forgotten about this patch!

Seriously, it’s been 2 months.
I’m sorry, but someone in the SCEE has to be fired.

theres 3 weeks left in the year, yet still no confirmed date? I have little faith we’re getting it this year…

Comment by: Liam (PSN: Mental-Gear)

December 9th, 2009 at 11:03 am

Thanks for the update Kellee – at least it’s coming…I just hope eventually. I checked last night, still nothing.

As Mark has said, the issue lies with EU language diversity, which is why we usually (can’t say ‘always’ as it would be untrue – European PSN has some PSN games America doesn’t…bad Disney ones) get the short straw in games.

At least importing is possible, but it does have its issues. I think that the UK should get the same release as the US, even without localising it (‘o’ to ‘ou’, ‘z’ to ‘s’) as the continental romance languages aren’t spoken there, but that doesn’t solve the problem for the rest of Europe.

*sigh* Any idea at all? Early 2010 perhaps?

Génial ! J’attends impatiemment !
Faite nous le signalé si vous avez une annonce officielle Kellee !

Awesome! Waiting impatiently!
Made us if you have reported an official announcement Kellee!

PS: Again, congratulations for the victory at VGA, besides, I do not know why and I was very surprised FaceBook offered me your account in the list of suggestions, I’ve never seen you before. \ O /

Hey there was no trophy support for me in Australia and i was pissed because i’m hooked on trophies, can’t get enough and these guys have probably just forgotten about the rest of us trophy hunters, so what i did was creat a north american account then log in on that account, go down to flOw, download the 16mb patch then when that’s installed log back into you regular account and load up flow then bam you got some beautiful trophies to unlock. This is pretty trivial and annoying but if you dedicated to trophies then i’m sure it won’t be too much of a hassle. Happy flOwing people =)
