Return Dirt Rally Playstation VR (PSVR) Bundle Back to North American Store

Recommended Posts

Why is the PSVR upgrade DLC missing from the North American Playstation store?

The listing in the North American versions of the Playstation store (Canada, USA) no longer have the "DiRT Rally PLAYSTATION VR UPGRADE DLC ADD-ON" available. It's just gone. Other stores like the UK and Australian ones continue to carry the DLC:

UK: https://store.playstation.com/en-gb/product/EP4001-CUSA03648_00-DIRTRALLY0000040
AUS: https://store.playstation.com/en-au/product/EP4001-CUSA03648_00-DIRTRALLY0000040

Any attempt to visit the US or Canadian listings results in a redirect to the base game:
USA: https://store.playstation.com/en-us/product/EP4001-CUSA03648_00-DIRTRALLY0000040
CAN: https://store.playstation.com/en-ca/product/EP4001-CUSA03648_00-DIRTRALLY0000040

Attempting to find the listing the the in-game menu in Dirt Rally directs you to a listing that is no longer available for purchase.

Can anyone from Codemasters shed some light on this topic? There are many people who recently made the purchase for the PSVR component who are left very confused because it was delisted or removed.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with this issue.  I just got a VR setup with one of my main sources of excitement being able to finally play Rally in VR; but was immediately disappointed and confused as to why I could no longer purchase it.  Like, why wouldn't you want to take my money?  Please fix this, it would mean a lot to us!

Hey guys I got an email back from CM!  They said that there were technical issues so they removed the separate DLC option.  So it will be available with the Bundle, and the Bundle will return to the store "soon".  Hope this helps!

Are there any updates on this from CM? 

This was a major reason behind my PSVR purchase. I own the disc version and I was very disappointed that the VR DLC was not available.

Yes, also looking for an update as this was one of the reasons I also purchased PSVR. CM? Anybody?

Oh, and I don't want the bundle - just the DLC would do, since I own the main game already.

It's been about a month since CM emailed me saying that it would return to the PS Store "soon".  I check the store frequently in hopes it'll be there one of these days, but seriously?  Yet it remains on every other country/region's store still.  I know they've been busy with Dirt 5's release, but c'mon it can't be that hard to add it back to the store after this long

I was robbed, I'm getting a refund for this joke, how is this acceptable from either playstation or codemonkeys.

Sold as the best vr on ps4 pro... but yet it doesn't exist.

I too was very disappointed in learning Dirt Rally VR was unavailable in North America. I own several Codemasters titles  with Dirt being my favorite. My first thought when opening a PS4 VR Christmas morning was being psyched to play this title. I was angry to learn it was available in other countries but not for me. I’m mildly encouraged by learning something is coming soon. From what I can tell that was promised 2 months ago. I can only ask Codemasters to please expedite this. Or let us know it is not going to happen.

Also quite disappointing to learn it wasnt available in canada. Does CM have a planned re-release date that they could fill us all in with.

Under the "New Games" section of the Playstation Store I just came across Dirt Rally for $19.99, and upon clicking on it saw its release date is 1/22/2021.  So, is this paving the way for the re-release of the VR bundle for us?  There is no word of VR in the description however, it appears just as the old base version.  Don't want to get hopes up but this is the only semblance of an update I've seen in far too many months!

Same boat. Sony and Codemasters support seem to both blame the other.

My main point of frustration is that its impossible to find a REAL explanation as to why this removed from the North American store only.

Is every other region not experiencing these "technical" issues?

******* sham and a scam that I cannot play the so called best PSVR racing game due to some arbitrary b.s. that neither company cares to explain fully.

The timing of this is suspiciously aligned with the EA acquisition. Obliviously not a high priority while Codemasters are dealing with a future under EA. This update is almost 4 years old now and we're all chomping at the bit to play it. Pretty sad that we don't have more VR racing titles for PS4. I hope that changes with the PS5.

I bought this game specifically for VR only. The vr is what made me buy the ps4 even. I have very little non vr games and 99% of my gaming time is spent in vr. I researched best racing games in vr and this game kept coming up and most played with a wheel. So I ordered a wheel and purchased the game only to find out we can't get the VR in the U.S. anymore? I have done extensive research and  can not find an answer as to why. So CODEMASTERS , please answer this question for the customers of this game and it will probably help with future purchases of your games. Other countries can get it so why can't we?

As previously stated, it's available again!  It would have been nice to only need to buy the DLC, but with as terrible as the PSVR game catalog is when it comes to racing games; I bought the game for what is now the third time!  Now to get the FFB to actually have some strength to it, I don't remember this game being so weak with it, even at max settings.  Oh well!

Thanks Codemasters for hearing us on this. I bought it too, reluctantly, for the stated reasons. I have to say, despite it's age, I find it a blast to play. I am thoroughly hooked on VR racing just from the meager offerings from the PS. I hope Sony, Codemasters, EA, whoever are paying attention to the calls for more VR racing titles. Not just updates to older games.
