Set the sky on fire with Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, Frank West returns in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record and zombies infest the wild west in Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition on PS3.

Enjoy The Drop.

PlayStation 3

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon — Ace Combat Assault Horizon intensifies the franchise, escalating combat to the next level with aircraft that are literally torn apart, spewing oil and debris across the sky. Players will engage in combat across the globe, dodging skyscrapers, and turning their enemies into fiery supersonic debris in both single player and online multiplayer. Never before has combat been so fast and in-your-face!

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record — Dead Rising 2: Off The Record, sees Wilamette survivor and hero of Dead Rising, photojournalist Frank West, take centre stage as players experience a very different interpretation of events in this, a reimagining of the Fortune City outbreak.

This alternate storyline means an all new Dead Rising 2 experience; with Frank facing new missions, new enemies, new combo-weapons with which to defeat them plus a brand new Fortune City attraction to explore. Complimenting the new narrative and action of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record are enhancements to elements such as the save system and the co-op experience to deliver more satisfying gameplay.

Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition — In addition to the award-winning original game, the Game of the Year edition of Red Dead Redemption comes packed with additional bonus content, including the add-on packs Undead Nightmare, Legends and Killers, Liars and Cheats Pack, Hunting and Trading Outfits Pack, Outlaws To The End Co-Op Mission Pack, Solomon’s Folly, and Myths and Mavericks.

Rune Factory: Tide of Destiny — Aden and Sonja, two lifelong friends, live a tranquil life on Fenith Island until they’re struck by a mysterious curse: they awaken to find both of their souls are now trapped in the same body! On top of this unusual calamity, the Fenith they knew is gone, replaced by a strange island populated with unfamiliar faces. Only by exploring this new world will they be able to solve the mystery of this curse and save their beloved Island.

During the course of their journey, Aden and Sonja will be aided by a colorful cast of characters, as well as take command of the towering golem Ymir. Using their newfound giant friend, they’ll cross vast seas, discover hidden islands and dungeons packed with riches, and battle fearsome monsters of the deep!

PlayStation Network

Sideway: New York (Only on PSN / Demo Available) — Set against the gritty art culture in New York City, Sideway follows the adventures of Nox, a 2D rebellious young artist, as he navigates the 3D urban streets.

Metal Slug 2 (Also on PSP) — Released in 1998 by SNK, Metal Slug 2 is a side-scrolling military-action game. Players choose from Marco, Tarma, Eri and Fio, setting their sights on wiping out Morden’s newly remobilized Rebellion Army. Just like the original Metal Slug, players blaze a trail by shooting and jumping, but Metal Slug 2 adds a new arsenal for you to command, including a heavy machine gun, a shotgun and even a laser gun, providing players with rich variety.

The King of Fighters ‘96 (Also on PSP) — The annual tournament to discover the new King of Fighters brings 27 of SNKs most powerful fighters together, throws them into teams of three, and lets you help them duke it out for the right to be called the best. The King of Fighters 96 entrants include Terry and Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi, Geese Howard, Wolfgang Krauser, and Mr. Big. There are nine pre-packaged teams, but with the custom-team option, you can create over 2900 of your own choosing.

  • Was hoping for Chrono Cross, but I just bought NBA Jam: On Fire Edition so I’ll be busy for awhile while I wait for BF3 :)


  • Blaah still no PayDay: The Heist…

  • I’ve been holding out on Red Dead Redemption for something that brings it all together in one package. Sweet!

  • Was also hoping for Chrono Cross. Any word on it? pleaaassee?

  • Red Dead Goty edition! I might just have to get that sometime, not till after this November flood though, too many games in November. A friend let me borrow Red Dead and I loved it, still need the dlc and Undead Nightmare though, the goty edition is a must buy for me.

  • Ace Combat: Assault Horizon better be good.

  • Lovin’ the updates to the PSone Classics/Neo Geo Station!

    Any news about a possible PSone classic version of Ehrgiez, or the original Armored Core with their expansions? This gives me such a chance to play the old games I missed out on. I love it.

  • been addicted to Red Dead’s Poker game online for months…. i think i may have a problem :) be good to see some fresh faces in the multiplayer … NO ONE has any excuse now to not get this game!

  • When is there a going to be a castlvaina:HoD demo? I want my friends to try that game.

  • I don’t know what’s the agreement with SNK for the KoF old games, but I hope KoF 98 or 2002 can go to the psn store anytime soon =)

  • What’s the pricing on the red dead goty edition btw?

  • I’m looking forward to The Cursed Crusade demo. Ace Combat Assault Horizon should be fun also. Good week!

  • Might have to try to get dead rising 2. Money is tight, wish they just had a cheaper DLC to update the game I got. But it is supposed to be 40 bucks

  • King’s Field series in NA, it can’t be that only Japan gets them when they were released in NA too, Shadow Tower would be great! King’s Field IV: The Ancient City goes all the way up to $80 for a new copy, doesnt that warrant a PS2 release on PSN? :<

  • Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny came in on friday last week. I’m pretty sure i recall that being the original time of release, too.

  • PSone classics needed: Die Hard Trilogy, Return Fire, Soul Blade, MDK, Tenchu

  • Ah… KOF96 and MS2, now we are finally starting to get to the good NeoGeo games.

    And, since Shock Troopers and KOF95′ both had surprisingly good netcode, I’m actually hyped for this.

  • Musashi: Brave Fencer for a PS1 Classic!

  • It’s on the Japanese Store so why not the US!

  • Are we going to get any more PS2 classics?

  • Chrono Cross probably won’t be released soon considering CT just released last week so people should give hopes by now. My guess is that it’ll be ready until early next year.

  • Anyone who has not seen Sideway please check it out. Very cool game by a small indie studio. If I’m not mistaken it is a PSN/SOE exclusive. At least play the demo. Other than that I’ll be hettin DR2, again, and Ace Combat. Hopefully they implemented checkpoints or autosave on DR2-2.

  • Xenosaga EP1-3, .hack//GU 1-3, FF7 Dirge of Cerberus PS2 classics please.

  • Anyone else see what new PS1 classic ‘the Drop’ brings us this week?

    XS Junior League Football

    Seriously, Sony? What the heck is this crap? Someone at SCEA actually wasted time and money getting this game on the store.I’m just flabbergasted.

    It’s time to rename ‘PS1 classics’ into ‘random PS1 games no one cares about’.

  • Gotta pick me up a copy of Red Dead GOTY. I missed out on it regularly, I feel rewarded that I waited!

  • Sony is trolling us hard! btw,I think you guys are doing the same with PS2 classics,sad but true!

  • Nothing of interest guess I’ll just keep working on my No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise plat.

  • nothing interesting this week..

  • Anything about payday

  • dead rising 2 men first one suck big fail hope dead rising2 lot better then first one red dead redemption one best rockstars game every love that game @25 shut up men you on trolling not sony

  • DUDE WHERE IS ROCK OF AGES I’VE HAD MONEY IN MY WALLET FOR IT COME ON WHERE IS IT has it been canceled or is it just no on the store

  • good The Drop this week. that graffiti game looks rad

  • Sideway looks great for just $7.99. Will try the demo and probably eventually buy.

  • The Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year Edition looks very tempting..

  • I would love to get RDR GOTY Edition but can’t. I’m occupied with other games anyways.
    I strongly recommend RDR GOTY edition to anyone who are interested. One of the best games Rockstar ever made.

  • Will try out sideways if I like it I will get it for sure I try my best to support developers that are exclusive to PSN.Also NBA Jam:On Fire Edition is well worth $15 give it a try if you’ve yet to purchase it

  • any word on a us psn release of legend of dragoon, i know it was released in japan last year. Also lookin forward to sideway

  • I’m ready to see Tomba! as a download.

  • OK, this week release look reasonable, Metal Slug 2 and KOF 96 is a good win for me.

  • I am having the cursed crusade imported from the uk. can’t wait for the demo.

  • Please, please, please give us an update on Journey. We haven’t heard anything since E3. Any news? Please? Throw us a bone. Looking forward to Sideway, though :)

  • Where is Payday the hiest? I have called the company and Sony with no avail or reply. This is theft by deception. I demand my $20 back or game released. To say it’s delayed with no release date or any other info at all is THEFT BY DECEPTION> THIS IS A FELONY DO YOU WANT ANOTHER LAWSUIT?

  • That’s got to be a pain for that Metal Slug guy to carry around…

  • why buy metal slug 2 when you can get metal slug x which is an enhanced port of 2?

  • people, shut the hell up, and stop complaining like a bunch of little boys, accept what you have or go work at sony

  • What happened to PayDay: The Ripoff… I mean The Heist… slip of the keyboard… but really, what happened to it?

  • I have my money all ready for Sideways. I hope it gets good reviews. I am rooting for it.

  • hmm cursed cursade demo. I cant wait to try.
