Hey gang,

First is the popular track “I Want To Know What Love Is,” from 1984’s Agent Provocateur, which reached number one on charts in both the United States and the United Kingdom in the 80s! Another popular Foreigner power ballad, “Waiting for a Girl Like You,” will also be available. Off of the band’s fourth studio record, 1981’s 4, it’s one of Foreigners most well-known tracks, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100!

    Quick update: the Foreigner, Nightwish and PS3 RBN DLC originally scheduled for 8/15 has been bumped to an expected 8/22 release on SCEE. We weren't aware of this schedule change until the content didn't appear in the store as scheduled late last week and we had a difficult time resolving the issue while many of the SCEE reps were at Gamescom until yesterday. If there are any further delays we hopefully won't have to wait as long before addressing. Thanks for your patience.
