  • word … I will loose many hours of sleep this week between HP and UC3 :D

  • @80
    One your a moron. Two some people only have a PSP. Until I finally got my PS3 all these ignoring the PSP users was really irritating. I personally would like an answer to the Fate/Extra question because, Im looking forward to it myself and hope it’s on PSN because I have problems finding games like that in stores around me.

  • Tomorrow i will have a smile on my face the whole day. The rest of this week sounds like its going to be good for me. I cant wait until my Uncharted 3 arrives.

  • ya always get someone who whines and complains like Rorek.. i dont even know why they bother playing games if they are so pathetically sad they cant do anything but whine… with Uncharted 3, i wouldnt care if there wasnt a single other release this week… Uncharted 3 is all i need….. am curious about Lord of the Rings, but that can wait for another day…
    and then we get a trailer for GTA5 on Wednesday… that’ll be epic….

  • Dilbag, whats wrong with you? your pitiful trolling is horrible. but look on the bright side, its finally that one day of the year you can go outside and actually fit in with the other zombies.

  • picking up UC3 at midnight !!! can’t wait to start pwn noobs ! lol

  • @Little kid

    It’s finally the day you can get yourself some free candy from strangers, something more than likely you do on a weekly basis. FYI, you are the one trolling.

    I commented because he comes on here every single “Drop” whinning that there isn’t anything good when the fact is that nearly every single “Drop” has been great for the past 2 months. Not my fault people have a horrible tastes in gaming. Not to mention “RorekIronblood” already sad he isn’t getting any games with an online pass.

  • Uncharted 3 and Sonic Generations will be MINE.

  • Any 1 know the price of metal gear hd collection new? comes nov8

  • will Battlefield 3 be released on the US PSN as was released in the UK PSN?

  • Ok I have to make a correction it’s not 80 I tried to comment on. A bunch of comments reshuffled. Sorry the current 80 But Rey! I’d really like to know if Fate/Extra is gonna be on the PSN tommorow.

  • Weres Grand Theft Auto San Andreas for PS2 classics??????

  • YES! Uncharted 3 and Sonic Generations =D

    Keep the PS2 classics coming, Sony!

  • @SonicWind149 I agreed Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception will be great. I might get Sonic Generations though, @thegreatklaid If I knew i’d tell you but keep your fingers crossed if it will!

    Happy Halloween everyone!

  • @gameplayer1214 who knows maybe it will be the next one to release in the next batch of ps2 classics? And if not you could go to PlayStation.Blog.Share to submit a request for them to release it. If it’s a popular demand then you will see it in psstore!

    Long Live Classics!

  • I’ll be going after Pinballistik tomorrow, while I’ll pick up Sonic Generations and Uncharted 3 eventually.

  • dilbag your still a crybaby I see. *YAWN* no surprise there. You really should’ve been enrolled in the full day special ed class you need it. Once again you come back drooling nonsense on the floor as if your idiotic brown nosing actually matters. Time for you to get off your mommies computer and head back to your coloured blocks and take the other shills with you. The adult world your trying to enter has no place for cowardly kiddies who pretend to be all tough whilst hiding behind a keyboard.

  • Note to sony: time to stop letting the whiney little nerds speak for you. Ditch them, Hire somebody with real PR ability. All they’re doing is making you look just as bad as your competition. Allowing trolls to defend your mistakes only compounds the problem and makes you as a company look even worse.

  • I am getting Uncharted 3. That is all. All those other games picked a bad time to be released.

  • PirateHartard

    You really are that stupid aren’t you? You (among a very few others) are always on here complaining. With no support from others or yourself, you have baseless comments. You are dumb as f***! You really have no life do you? Sad little troll on a blog, talking about hiding behind a keyboard when you yourself can’t do anything else but that. It’s people like you that ruin gaming.

    You have an xbox, stated you are no longer buying third party games on the PS3, and have said you aren’t buying any game with online passes. Looks like you can’t be a gamer. Go get on your Wii because that is the only choice you have left. You are scum, no worse. Sad little man sitting behind his computer, with only one hand on the keyboard. Get a new hobby. Gaming is too much for you, especially when you hardly do it. Bye, don’t let more hypocrisy hit you on the way out.

    Stupid F***ing kid didn’t get his candy. And now mommy won’t buy his games. Go troll somewhere else

  • Allot of good looking games and there’s a little title called UNCHARTED 3 that I might pick up considering I have the Collector’s edition pre-ordered, but it doesn’t look like it will be a big game!!! I mean the reviews have been awful 10/10s everywhere just so sad, it’s a rental!!! 8P 8)

  • Uncharted 3 might be just what it takes to pull me away from the death grip that Dark Souls has on me. Save me Drake!

  • Please, Bring The Legend of Dragoon to PSONE classics

  • Cant eait to try DCUO for the first time!

  • @112 The answer is on Amazon

  • I would like to see Battlefield 3 come to US PSN as well. And i would also purchase infamous 2 in a heartbeat if there was a PS+ sale for 39.99. In. A. Heart. Beat. Also would like to see some more PS2 Classics (Dragon Quest VIII Please!!!)

    Other than that, great job Sony, really been enjoying the drops lately! Also am a proud PSN+ Subscriber, and will continue to be as long as you keep making it such an excellent program!

  • OMG Bloodrayne awesome I do hope for KH series now. Keep the PS2 classics coming guys I love it.

  • @mgsnul617

    The disc version is $49.99. Not sure about the digital versions since they may be released as separate titles.

  • I will gather up Harvest Moon (:

  • It seems like RPG’s are the main focus so far when it comes to PS2 ports.
    Thats great since they probably sell well but with so many good games in the PS2 library we need some variety here guys.

    Not to be negative but after playing the first Two Uncharted games the new one just looks like more of the same with a new coat of paint, but I guess that could be said for every game and people love the whole adventure story line so what do I know.

    I’m glad its finally here so the constant over hyping of the game will go away after what seems like an eternity.
    I will give it a whirl eventually and enjoy it but man is it overblown at the moment.

    Just getting into Batman so Uncharted 3 probably wont be on my radar anytime soon :)

  • Finally! I have been pumped since the Beta for Uncharted 3. I can’t wait to see what happens next. Also, although Im not buying it, I love it when Sony beats Nintendo or Microsoft, Goldeneye as an example.

  • my name in psn is nag-21 i play bf3,fifa12,un3,archam city and much more

  • cool Drop. Still waiting for My Chrono Cross. Though I love harvest moon, if my PS3 still had BC, I would not have to buy it again… I probably wont because I really cannot afford to re-buy a game unless it is up there with Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, or any Mario or Zelda. Harvest Moon STH was good, but, now I have Rune Factory Tides of Destiny which is an even better game that mixes Harvest Moon with some dungeon crawling. Probably wait until Goldeneye drops to $20 because I like my Wii version. and… uncharted…meh.

  • @gus_xl
    Tides of Destiny is amazing. I loved the first one on Wii, Rune Factory Frontier. Though I bought my tides of Destiny on my wii, I’m sire it’s just as awesome on PS3. It is one that I’m sure will be overlooked, but, it is a GREAT game.

  • When will DCUO come to the PSN store? I know it goes F2P today and I heard rumors it will be a free download on PS Store. Any idea when this will happen?

  • DC Universe is not going to be a free dl. If u own the disc it will be free to play instead of the subscription. Id be pissed if you can download it for free seeing as i payed full price for a gamer that lost its player base after the first month.

  • Golden Eye 007 w/ Move support sounds like fun.

  • I am anxious actually to play Air Conflicts: Secret Wars. The review over at iWaggle3d piqued my interest. Anyhow, you say it dropped this week but no stores have it in stock yet. Gamestop says its released next week. What gives, when is the game really coming out?

  • Getoutahea!!!
