The Drop: Week of December 5th 2011 New Releases

Our grand opening of our first Vita Hill Social Club was an overwhemling success! It was a pleasure to meet the PlayStation community in the Bay Area, and give you a personal introduction to PS Vita. Check out the PlayStation facebook for photos! Stay tuned, we’ll be opening more Social Clubs in more cities soon. Listen to the PlayStation.Blogcast for a hint!

The Drop this week brings Dragon Age II, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Final Fantasy VI to PSN.

PlayStation 3

Just Dance 3 (PlayStation Move Support)– Just Dance 3 gives a new twist to the already spontaneous and outrageous dance game. The game kick-starts the party with over 40 tracks that span all kinds of musical genres and include popular artists like “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO, “California Gurls” by Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg, and “Forget You” by Cee Lo Green. Also included are legendary favorites like “I Was Made For Lovin’ You” by Kiss. With a variety of all-new gameplay modes, tracks that allow up to four dancers to uniquely shine, and innovative cardio training options, Just Dance 3 was made to bring the party and keep America dancing!

The Adventures of Tintin — An action-packed adventure that takes gamers on a nonstop journey through the world of Tintin; the hero and intrepid reporter from Herge’s original comic books. Players will rediscover the movie’s enchanting environs including Captain Archibald Haddock’s ship the Karaboudjan, Omar Ben Salaad’s Palace and the exotic city of Bagghar and experience many of Tintin’s exciting adventures.

PlayStation Network

Dragon Age II — Dragon Age II thrusts players into the role of Hawke, a penniless refugee who rises to power to become the single most important character in the world of Dragon Age. Known to be a survivor of the Blight and the Champion of Kirkwall, the legend around Hawke’s rise to power is shrouded in myth and rumor. Featuring an all-new story spanning 10 years, players will help tell that tale by making tough moral choices, gathering the deadliest of allies, amassing fame and fortune, and sealing their place in history. The way you play will write the story of how the world is changed forever.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit — The game features Need for Speed Autolog where players compare racing stats and automatically get personalized gameplay recommendations from their friends. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit players can also experience the thrill of the chase and the rush of the escape as they play through full careers as both a cop and a racer – solo or connected. The high speed busts and heart-stopping getaways are all connected via Need for Speed Autolog.

Wanted Corp. — Traversing dangerous terrain through four different campaigns, players wield a variety of weapons and kinetic powers – machine guns, grenades, telekinesis, protective shields and lightning – to eliminate or arrest more than 26 various kinds of enemies including fierce bosses, sentry robots and mechanical spiders. Environments also pose challenges as shooters must navigate obstacles while battling opponents in diverse settings such as hostile jungles, murky swamps and a secret, underground base.

PSone Classics

Final Fantasy VI — Ages ago, evil beings created powerful creatures called Espers and unleashed them against each other. The resulting battles turned their world into smoldering rubble. Legend has it that the Espers destroyed themselves and most of humanity. Magic disappeared forever.

Centuries have passed, and a rational world now exists with Espers living only in myths. Suddenly, after an ancient frozen Esper is unearthed, there are reports of magic attacks on civilians. Imperial Commandos launch raids using magic-powered MagiTek weapons. Magic is obviously alive, and the world is in danger again. Who or what is behind the rediscovery and redeployment of this legendary power? What chaotic plans will wreak havoc on this orderly world?

  • First

  • YAY! Final Fantasy VI is finally coming to PSN! Hands down one of THE BEST RPG’s I’ve ever played.

  • Awww No PS2 Classics? I don’t know I feel like this drop is pretty small… good games though, im probably getting Dragon Age 2 :)

  • Also, nice holiday Blog takeover :)

  • What is with the leaves in the sides. Those it involve the last of us?

  • Wooohooooo!!! Nice week! can´t wait for the full post for all of the small and awesome things!

  • WARNING – Sony has completely broken the ability to copy your digital content from the PS3 to your PSP. Digital PSP, PS1, and Minis titles can no longer be copied to a PSP once installed—the only way to do so is to keep the installer on your PS3, and a PS3 can only retail up to 32 installer files at one time.

    This basically means that for all of us who use our PS3 as a sort of “digital locker” for our digital content, that entire functionality is dead as of PS3 firmware 4.0. Hopefully this is a bug that will be fixed, but the far more troublesome thought is that this is something Sony has intended.

    Either way, I absolutely encourage people not to purchase ANY digital content meant for the PSP until either Sony states that this is as intended, or they get this issue fixed. For people like me who are on a Mac and cannot use Media Go, I am now absolutely screwed. I’ve spent a lot of money on digital content for my PSP, and as of now I have no real means through which to logically transfer it to said PSP when wanted/needed.

  • I want that FFVI!!!

  • @pikoeri, solves that issue and is much easier.

    now onto my comment please start including the prices in your posts

  • Goldeneye 007: Reloaded good thing there’s a demo first,before i buy this game!!Awsome!

  • Why are all PSOne Classics RPGs lately. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Would rather watch wet paint dry. Holy boring games Batman.

  • Cool, Rage demo is out.

  • Pretty awful drop this week. Dragon Age 2, ugh. That game deserves to be wiped from memory.

    Hope the PS+ content this month is good.

  • 10## RPGs are the games that age best.

  • @10

    RPGs are the only games that were much better back then than today. If you want action games, shooters or whatever other type of games, the PS3 has plenty of great ones already.

  • best nfs game every made hot pursuit not bull crap the run is was garbage

  • Rage yes thanks ray because i was thinking about buying it now i will know ps do you have a vote 4 game of the year

  • extremely weak update but at least Final Fantasy VI is in it

  • Burnou- I mean, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is such a good game. I encourage everyone to get!

  • This is….bleh

    Lets get DIGITAL DOWNLOAD of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection…at least Peace Walker


  • Can Sony Representatives please come forward and to confirm NOR to deny Pikoeri (#7)’s comment regarding copying digital games over from Playstation 3 to PSP? WE RESERVE THE RIGHTS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS! Do not IGNORE OR let this question SLIP! We are your consumers after all- we are the ones who spend tons of money on your products. You better darn come clean on this one.

    Also, I’ve heard one rumor about using ONE ACCOUNT FOR VITA, not TWO. Here is the link to NeoGAF which pretty much confirmed this:

    “I just got back from the Vita event in Osaka (where I got to try most launch titles), and they gave us this little catalog with the launch line up of games and accessories. There also a FAQ section at the end, and that’s where I found this bad news:

    Q: How many PSN account can be set up on a Vita system?
    A: Only 1 account. If you want to to use a different account, you need to format the system to factory settings.
    (translation from Japanese by me, apologies if it doesn’t sound natural in English).

  • So there you go. Forget having multiple accounts for your brother or your gf. Forget having multiple accounts for each region. Just cancel your preorder, it’s not worth it anymore #trolling

    I’ll add the original Japanese phrasing, in case someone wants to try to do a better job at translating than me…

    Q: PSNアカウントは、PSVita本体1つに対して何個まで設定できますか?
    A: 1つです。別のPSNアカウントで使用したい場合は、本体の初期化を行ってください。”

  • Golden Reloaded better be awesome, people have been talking about that game for years.

    also, can we perm ban anyone who posts “first”? as in, perm ban from everything, forever, in fact just hang them plz.

  • FF6 is nice but c’mon when are the digital versions of the MGS HD collection coming out? QQ

  • Also, with Christmas coming up you guys need to add a “Gift” feature to the PSN so we can buy things for our friends, Honestly it shouldve had that all along but now would be a perfect time to add it

  • go buy worry about digital version lol

  • The newest firmware 4.0 is crap. It’s messing up the PSP content.

  • Where is the Playstation Plus monthly update for December?

  • Why spend $50 bucks when I have that in psn account. I read there would be digital copy same day as retail.

    Nothing else worth getting in ps store

  • Nice, Need For Speed Hot Pursuit on PSN. Hope they don’t put it at $49.99 or more. Guess there putting everyting on the European store on the North American store. Bf3 is on the European store, hope they put it on this one soon! :D

  • No one careers about the drop cause everyone playing mw3!!!!!!!! and none of these horrible games!!

  • @29

    Implying that MW3 is a good game.

  • @29
    i laughed so hard with your comment,WWE as your user name and then liking MW3 ok i believe you!

  • Is MW3 actually good? I heard it was an Add-On for MW2…

  • @31 LOL

    But yea im looking forward to the Rage demo. Been wanting to try that out.

  • You guys plan on doing that free game promotion for PS+ like EU is doing, where they’re getting a game every two or so days?

  • Will PS3 owners be compensated in any way by Bethseda for releasing a broken product? For those who don’t know, Skyrim on PS3 has massive slowdown and other problems once the save file reaches a certain size. I was just reading a blog post by a guy at Obsidian who worked on New Vegas and he essentially said the PS3 version will never get fixed because of the RAM limitations of the console. Bethseda should not ship broken products to PS3 owners.

  • Really cool to NFS Hot Pursuit on there. How much will it cost?

    Oh, and could you please make a PS-One classic of “Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time”. My disc is too scratched, and I would happily pay for it if it was on PSN.

  • Don’t buy this version of Final Fantasy 6. Its absolutely terrible.

    It has to load constantly. Before a fight, after a fight, when you push the menu button…

    Its even has scenes censored from the SNES version. Not worth it.

  • @22 don’t buy Goldeneye Reloaded, its not the same game. If you want a goldeneye experience get a N64 and get Goldeneye for it.

  • NEJI64 (#40)… Uh, you must be referring to #24 (supvic)… :-p But all is good here.

  • Rey has been awfully quiet lately (he doesn’t respond anymore). Maybe they replaced him with a robot?

  • Please get Metal Gear Solid: VR MIssions
    and the PSone Tony Hawk games.

  • I WAS a happy ps3 owner and I am happy xbox 360 owner…for about 2 months my ps3 has been collecting dust (Literally)..I thought I would expect more from sony with these updates….Come December 6th Xbox 360 gets a HUUUUGE Update with tons of entertainment being added on like live T.V. HBO GO and like 30 some more partners jumping on NOW THAT IS A UPDATE GUYS, Sony take notes cuz microsoft comes out with solid updates A LOT. You guys just don’t know how to deliver anymore…if you even could

  • @37 Chrono trigger was the same way. The load times for the Psn version are horrible.

  • How much will Dragon Age 2 be!? I’ve been dying to play that game but have waited for a good deal…so hopefully it’ll be $20 or less!

  • Sweet, a Goldeneye demo! I saw that on sale all through Black Friday and have been itching to try it.

    Any PS+ subscription deals this week?

  • How about you DROP the Release Notes for 4.0? (to answer the PSP issue, along with the HEALTH WARNING)

    How about you DROP the PS+ December list?

    How about you DROP some REPLIES to any QUESTIONS?

    Can’t wait for………….SOME ANSWERS

    I was thinking about getting the Vita, But the fact you DROPped PSP support (COMICS, GAMES, and conectivity with PS3) , plus the Memory cards are overpriced. I will pass until it goes down. not one games is calling me any way, I mean Uncharted might be cool, but just adding touch controls to that games looks and sounds dumb.
