  • Wow! What awesome week! There’s a lot of games. I’m certainly get GTA III and maybe more one or two games.

  • PSP huh? Lame. I want my final fantasy on a decently sized screen

  • YAY! GTAIII and Ratchet and Clank! … is a good day.

  • Wouldn’t be surprised at all if the store updates late on Tuesday, there’s a ton of content coming on Tuesday! =)

  • damn tokyo jungle and one piece warriors… i hate you guys right now

  • Been looking forward to One Piece since it was announced! It was the reason I bought my PS3 in the first place. Any idea of a price on it yet? Also looking forward to Starhawk, should be great getting another free game.

  • When will the USA get Ecolibrium on their PS Vitas? I’m glad to see the release of GTA III, but do you think you can coherce Rockstar into bringing it to the Vita?

    I can play it on my Android phone (albeit really poorly), so the Vita should have NO problems running it. :D

  • Great week for PSN it seems. Have to buy a PSn card sometime this week and pick up LBP. College is always in the way smh

  • Great week. I might not be picking up anything (at least until I know FF3 will be available on the vita), but at least others will be happy for stuff to be added.

    Also, great additions to psone classics. The Digimon world series. ;)

  • Awesome drop, but please fix the broken Youtube app. It freezes every single time I use it and it won’t even load videos anymore.

  • Please answer :

    Is fifa 13 PS3 coming next tuesday, i mean on the 25th store update?

  • Buy Starhawk!!!!! Everyone!!!

  • is psn on steroids this week? This one wicked drop! I’ll be getting One Piece day one.

  • IGN says that playstation blogcast confirmed ps vita compatibility of FFIII

  • Looks like a good week. However I really am having difficulty locating any information about the FIFA 13 Vita version. Gaming retailers have it scheduled for the same day as the PS3 version but other than that, no info.

    I’m really curious to see if the the tactical defending and physics engine from 12 make an appearance. Will be pleased if anyone can point me in the direction of any information at all.

  • Looking forward to DOA 5 and Tokyo Jungle! Also, I just want to say thanks to whoever green lighted the localization for Tokyo Jungle. That is one game I never thought would get a Western release.

  • That’s a very nice update!

  • Where’s GoW Saga?

  • Dear Sony,

    Why do you trend to lag behind Microsoft in re-releasing physical games as game on demand? I am particularly talking about Street Fighter games. Xbox 360 got Street Fighter 4, Super Street Fighter 4, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Street Fighter x Tekken as game on demand but PS3 did not. PSN got Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition as game on demand almost a year after XLA. Please re-release Street Fighter x Tekken and Marvel vs Capcom 3 as game on demand. I know that there are some legal issues with the re-release of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.

  • Tokyo jungle looks nice

  • That’s a lot of games. Pirates sounds cool. I’ve wanted to play mirrors edge for quite some time now, niiice to see that as a digital option now. Many will be happy to see GTAIII officially available, not my type of game though. FF III was IMHO the worst of them all. They should have done it exactly like IV complete, VI, VI…those sprites are what FF fans really love. No, the PSP is not “DEAD” like some of the players say. If it was, there would be absolutely nothing being released recently. At the moment, PSP>VITA. I do want a VITA, but until it gets the support that it should, I’ll just keep playing my PSP3000. Enjoy!

  • If mirror’s edge is 20 bucks (should be no more than that if you ask me) I’ll pick that up and Ratchet and Clank up Tuesday

  • and resident evil 6 pre-order? T__T

  • awww, no tokyo jungle demo? ah well. at least there is one of hell yeah.

  • I’m so getting Tokyo Jungle!!!! o/

  • The Pomeranian. Unleash the beast within.


  • Sweet! Ratchet and Clank and GT3 for me!

    Anyone know if the “extra missions” for Infamous are just the DLC that can already be obtained?

  • I have been waqiting for months for one piece it’s finally here but it should also have come on disc but atleast we got it

  • YES!!!! GTA III!!!

    Was the music license issue resolved or did the song(s) have to be cut out of the game?

  • One Piece: Pirate Warriors finalmente, la espera me estaba matando

  • I cant wait for that NBA 2K13 DEMO ITS BEEN LONG OVERDUE

  • Please, please answer:

    How much is the One Piece game going to be on PSN? No one has answer!

    Thank you!

  • @ 32
    One Piece Pirate Warrior will likely be around $40 to $50 @ 11gb to download the full game

  • *has an

  • Nice drop this week. I already have LBP Vita, and I can’t wait to transfer my stuff from LBP 2. Also, I have to ask about Final Fantasy III. . . Although I am happy to finally see it on PSN, whose stupid idea was it to release it on PSP? The PSP is, for the most part, a dead system. This would have been a great cross-play game with trophy support for PS3 and Vita. Did you guys really think it would be better accepted on PSP, or was it simply more convenient for whatever stupid reason? I hope it isn’t more than $10, otherwise I’ll wait for it to go on sale. I’ve waited this long to play it, there is no reason why I can’t wait a little longer.

  • Fifa 2013 is cross buy? I want it in mi Vita and Ps3 :D

  • What about The Testament of Sherlock Holmes? I thought it will be out this week…

  • And to think that this may not be everything being released on tuesday…Great work Morgan & the PSN team….

  • Is final fantasy 3 vita compatible?

  • Will Final Fantasy III be playable on Vita?

  • Can you please stop dodging the question and respond to if FFIII will be playable on the Vita? If not why not?!


  • GT3 looks so bad on a HD TV. need GTAIII HD!!! Maybe it we come next year :(

  • Is the pulse headset coming out this week?

  • Crash & Spyro avaiable for Vita please.

  • Games that will soon be mine:
    Mirror’s Edge
    Ice Hockey

  • I have to second the question of where is God of War Saga. I thought Ratchet Collection, Infamous collection ,and God of War Saga were all getting released on the 25th. Is it because God of War 3 is coming to PSN a little later unlike where the other ones already have separate PSN releases?

    As far as GTA 3 i’ll believe it when its on my HDD. I know i’m definetly grabbing Starhawk & Ratchet collection on payday

  • Any chance of a UMD release for Final Fantasy III? The Japanese version is getting a UMD release and that version has an option to switch to English text. I might actually import if the US release doesn’t get a UMD release.

    Grand Theft Auto III … Yes. I will definitely pick that up on the PSN, or I might just get the game again on eBay.

    Marvel vs. Capcom Origin… Oh yea! Let’s hope we get a Vol 2 of this with X-Men vs. Street Fighter and Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter. I’d also love to see a similar compilation with Capcom vs. SNK Pro and Capcom vs. SNK 2… Oh and let’s get SNK to bring us SVC Chaos HD for the US PSN gamers.

    Come on SCEA!! Make my wishes come true!! PLEASE!!!!

  • tokyo jungle and mirrors edge when i get some money

  • @43 Amazon is still showing pulse headset as 10/1 release date

  • (1) FF III Will be playable on Vita……
    (2) God Of War saga is already in stores. check your local Best Buy.
