The Drop: Week of July 11th 2011 New Releases

If I could be friends with anyone (or anything,) it would easily be a Death Eater. They’re the closest character resembling a Sith Lord in the Harry Potter universe — making them the villain I’ll be rooting for this week when the seventh Harry Potter film ends the saga. With all epic films, follows an epic game. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows arrives on PS3 this week, with PlayStation Move support adding extra precision to your magic wand.

Also, demos and minis return to PSN with the help of a brotherhood of assassins. Enjoy this week’s The Drop.


PlayStation 3

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 — In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, players will be on the run, fighting for survival on a desperate and dangerous quest to locate and destroy Voldemort’s Horcruxes, engaging with Death Eaters and Snatchers in epic battle sequences at every turn.

To amplify the action, players will encounter ferocious creatures from the previous films in addition to the adversaries Harry faces in the seventh film. They will need to muster their most powerful magic against relentless assaults from all sides. There are no more lessons, no more training. This time the danger is real. It’s time for players to fight for their lives.

NCAA Football 12 — NCAA Football 12 takes the journey of the college athlete to the next level of depth and authenticity. Experience the pride and pageantry of gameday Saturday with all new enhanced in-game presentation, traditions and school specific crowd celebrations. Make an impact on the field as your team takes down your heated rival on the road to the National Championship.

PlayStation Network

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood — Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood offers a never-before-seen multiplayer layer. Players can help the Templars by using Abstergo to train in the art of Assassination to eliminate the Assassins once and for all. Players can choose from a wide range of unique characters, each with their own signature weapons and assassination techniques, and match their skills against other players from all over the world in different game modes.

PSN Demos

  • Catherine
  • PixelJunk Shooter 2: Online Battle
  • Dead Nation


Mighty Flip Champs! DX — In Mighty Flip Champs, players control Alta as she warps through a virtual stack of maze-laden chambers that “flip” past like pages of a magical book. Will she land safely on solid ground, or be crushed under it? By cycling endlessly through room after brain busting room, players will match wits with some of the most inspired traps in puzzle/platforming history.

  • Another weak week. When should we expect another flow of good content? Mainly all those PSone games…..

  • Time to see what all this Catherine Hype is all about

  • NO PSOnes Games this week? That Sucks!

  • Catherine demo yes yes

  • PS3 ROCK’S !!!! Every week coming up with something fantastic when are we sony gamers going to get the new map’s for black op’s ?

  • When does the summer sale start?

  • grandadylongstik

    Not that much but okay.price of assassins creed brotherhood pls.

  • how much is ac:brotherhood?

  • still no news on a release date for daggerdale? Any chance I could get something vague? A “soon” perhaps? Or a “don’t give up hope, it’s coming”? I’d also like to hear something to that effect for a Legend of Dragoon release.

  • Catherine demo! Yes!

    • Haha. I’m with yah. I’ve read lots of greats things on Catherine, I’m eager to see what all that fuss is about. This is why demos are always a great alternative, before trying to the full game.

  • SO this is what the 3rd or 4th week that the drop has been pathetic. I mean come on there is nothing. Please Sony if you can only release a few things start holding off on the drop of the week, cause this is yet another BOMB of the week. You guys for the last 3-4 weeks have really dropped the ball with these weekly drops. Where are the PSone titles? How about you tell us of the DLC that will be available on tuesdays?

    • We have a dedicated PSN Store post every Tuesday which contains DLC, and other PSN updates. Stay tuned for an in-depth PSN update shortly.

  • Nothing for me this week. :(
    I haven’t enjoyed the Summer updates, but the upcoming sale I am looking forward too for sure!!

  • How much will Brotherhood be?

  • brotherhood better be cheap i just picked it up for 19.99 at EB games out where i live

  • Another weak drop.

  • @14, obviously Full Retail price, $59.99 lol

  • A Dead Nation demo? That’s pretty funny considering the game was released nearly a year ago and then offered for free in the “Welcome Back” package.

  • Digital-Big-Boss


  • I hope the delay for the last episode of Back to the Future is because they are making it really, really awesome for PS3. (The first episode was obviously rushed to PS3 a little too early.)

    The trailer for Catherine has me fascinated, so I’ll definitely be checking out the demo.

    Whoever says there hasn’t been a good drop in weeks didn’t get Beyond Good & Evil HD, which is phenomenal!

    re: Harry Potter, any chance we’ll get a Quidditch World Cup HD? with Move + Nav controller support? was one of my favorite Xbox games 7 years ago, and the only “sports” game I’ve ever liked!

  • Is sony broke or something can not afford comics psp games psone classics.I was really like playstation vita but since your killing off all support like some other unnamed console i seriously doubt ill buy anything else from sony since they will just stop supporting things for no reason when vita is not coming out for at least another 4 months.
    Why does the mini have the Nintendo ds description.

  • no Parasite Eve 2? Well, I’ll check next Sunday I suppose… -_-

  • Where are Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy VI? They were rated by the ESRB ages ago and the Europe store has had them a few weeks now.

  • For the NEW gamers:

    Summer has always been slow for releases. In comparison, this is the most active summer I have ever seen for Sony. Give Rey a break.

    Dead Nation is a good idea for a demo, for those that haven’t played it. Not everyone had the opportunity to download it for free ( new consoles are sold everyday). Not every drop is “all about you”.

    Rey G. :

    Thanks for the heads-up, the Catherine teasers have my interest peaked, as does the summer sale:)

  • Can’t blame hackers for this weak garbage.

  • theXsilentXchild

    Catherine Demo!!! This will determine if I will be buying or renting!

  • Nothing for PSP owners like myself… :(

  • I would be very surprised if AC:Brotherhood was any less than $29.99 . I actually expecting $39.99 .

  • * I’m actually expecting .

  • So when is Castlevania Harmony of Despair coming out? It’s been confirmed. Surly a release date couldn’t hurt.

  • I want Resistance3 BETA please sony when is this BETA going to start ?! I really liked the multiplayer trailer and THE BLA exclusive demo is really superb Can’t wait for the BETA !!

  • Can’t wait to try the catherine demo. Rey when is Rochard, Dungeon Defenders, Dungeon’s and Dragons: Daggerdale coming out? Thanks.

  • Wanna see what’s the big deal about Catherine.

    Also DLing the Pixel Junk Shooter demo.

  • Does anyone know when release date on Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath? Thanks

  • lol harry potter. I know theres more goodies to be had this tuesday . give em up rey!!! or else !!!

  • add me robins014

  • Putting out a demo of a game after it was released for free?

  • birthday tomarrow. so this week sucks again. good thing i asked for some older games and tv series to tie me over till some decent games releases.

  • No offense, but there really isn’t enough there to call it the drop. I have been wanting to try out Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, however. I guess this will be a good week to save some money.

  • What about the MLB Bobblehead Pro game from Konami? Xbox has it. Getting PS3 exclusive generic games on the store just isn’t cutting it. Or am I supposed to be excited Limbo is releasing next week a year late? I almost feel like I bought the Gamecube this gen since it’s such a struggle to get 3rd party games now.

  • LOL at comment number 2. xD

    Cause PS1 games are such a big deal.

  • Well it is a good thing I got other stuff to play… Nothing for me. I understand the drop is mostly about new games, but lately it is about Sony stuff. Back to the future episode 5 is about a infamous 2 price drop?

  • Come on what about Resident evil 4

  • Can’t even give info of what is to come after this weak game summer ends???

    Besides trying out Catherine for all the talk of that game, Sony is damn poor these days, even STUPID!!!!!
    Man, for a hole month surely more then 90% of PSN subscribers could get Dead Nation for FREE!!!!


    Even PixelJunk Shooter 2, not a demo to show the game, but just its tiny multiplayer, sad to see much poor weeks are coming……..

  • LionsguardAgrias

    What gives with the lack of PS1 this last month? I wanna play Chrono Trigger already!

  • @axecution
    Not everyone has lived as long as you to have a PSone between 1995~2000.
    Also, PSP owners buy these games too.
    In fact, there are PSone games that far surpasses some current gen titles in quality. Graphics aren’t everything.

  • Oh wow, Mighty Flip Champs DX might just be the best mini yet, methinks! Cool.

  • Well bg and e HD finally came out but i was puzzled as to why when running around the controls hadn’t been updated because if you’re an inverted fan then your left/right are messed up but fine behind the camera.

    Also the sly collection has HD graphics and trophies but the scope view is legacy control but fine when running around,I wish the controls of older games like ratchet 1 would also get a MODERN SCHEME like older ratchets should play like ps3 ratchet games do. I hope patches are forthcoming for sly and bg and e HD as both are worth playing and both got a face lift and trophies but lack modern uncharted,killzone,cod,ratchet style play everyone is expecting.

    Next big psn game I want is journey.

  • What i don’t understand is why put a game on sale, then weeks later put the demo out! I really don’t buy games that i have not played. at lets 95% of my games where demos that i liked. So it would be much better if the demo came out a few weeks before the sale. To give us players a chance to play the game. Just a thought, but something to think about!

  • Can we at least get a say on when Crash Commando is coming out? PLZ

  • Yikes – another week of nothing, honestly. Brotherhood is nice if its 20 bucks, but it’ll probably be 30 bucks. Also the Catherine demo is going to be good – but nothing else is coming out…I hope there’s some amazing DLC this week.
