Hi Everyone. I get the impression that some of you liked the idea of a collector’s Super Combo Pack for Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky and Persona 2: Innocent Sin.Well, the good news is that I’ll have a little more info on that, along with pre-order info, very soon so keep your eyes on our Blog, Facebook and Twitter (in addition to following me on Twitter of course:)).
Before I get into some of the juicier news about Ghostlight’s future plans, I just wanted to let all you Agarest: Generations Of War Zero fans out there know that the free DLC will be arriving on the PSN store on October 5th. We’re still having issues with the paid DLC, but I’m reliably informed that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and we hope to have this all resolved in the coming weeks.
Ok, so going back to our future plans…
There’s an important issue that came up in the last blog that I’d like to start with. Garron asked us about the Australian PlayStation Store’s sad lack of some of Ghostlight’s recent games. We agree that this is most distressing and I’m pleased to say that we are looking into bringing all of our games onto the Australian PSN store, with the mighty P3P leading the way.
Another issue that many of you have pointed out is that due to the continued growth of the PlayStation store, only releasing “collector’s editions” with a physical UMD of a game, is perhaps a little bit blinkered. That’s why we’ve been looking at several ways of allowing our fans who prefer to download their games, a way of getting hold of some of our CE goodies. So in the near future we hope to offer up some key CE items (like posters, T-Shirts and OSTs) for individual purchase, although I should point out that this will only be for selected games. We are also looking into offering selected OSTs as a digital download for purchasers of PSN releases, but again, this will only be for selected games where the licensing rights allow it.
Looking further ahead, for those people who intend to buy a PSN version of one of our games, we are also considering the logistics of offering a discount on the physical CE version. We don’t have an answer yet, but we’re working on it. We have already looked into selling full CE versions with a download voucher instead of a UMD, but unfortunately this option is currently unavailable to us as a publisher.
Lastly, one issue that has been raised by many of you is that of processing payments. We are investigating alternatives to the current system as we fully understand and appreciate that it’s far from ideal. I’ll have more news on this soon, but in the meantime we would like to thank you all very much for your continued support while we work to improve things.

Barring a whole mass of questions coming up in the comments here, that’s all for our little FAQ for the moment. Please feel free to tell us what you think in the comments and if any of you are going to the Eurogamer Expo on Friday the Ghostlight team is going to be there wandering the halls giving out Cubixx HD leaflets so if you see us say hi :).
