Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault

(Also on PSN/PS Vita: Jan 2013) — Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault returns to the series’ classic feel, camera, controls and weapons, while innovating and giving you a whole new way to play. Even better, the addition of online features means you can experience the fun with your friends.

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!

Men in Black: Alien Crisis — Join the Men in Black as Peter Delacoeur, a MIB Agent in training assigned to unearth enemy aliens who are planning to destroy planet Earth. With hidden surveillance and stealthy guards on the prowl, players must ambush confidential alien intelligence and stop all alien attacks. Men In Black: Alien Crisis brings exciting, realistic MIB Agent movements as players shoot, and dodge their way through action-packed levels to escape fierce alien assaults. Play through the game in two-player split-screen action or test your MIB skills against your friends in four-person “hot-seat” competitive action.

Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension (PS Vita/PSP) — Fans will have the ability to play as one of eight characters including Phineas, Ferb or Agent P and overcome obstacles, use wacky gadgets unique to each character to defeat enemies. In addition, players can collect items, upgrade gadgets and unlock new playable characters while navigating through 24 thrilling levels in a quest to battle the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz and his robot army to save the world.

Fighting Vipers — Fighting Vipers brings fast-paced, brutal street-fighting action to the PS3.

Sonic the Fighters — A port of the Sega arcade game, featuring favorite Sonic characters fighting each other with unique special moves.

Virtua Fighter 2 — The first true 3D polygonal fighting game, Virtua Fighter brought to the table life-like animations and a fighting system that favored realism over fireballs and dragon punches. With Virtua Fighter 2, the series hit full stride with improved animations, a significant increase in the moves arsenal, fully texture-mapped graphics and a much speedier pace. While other 3D fighters may have implemented differing fighting systems, the influence and impact that Virtua Fighter 2 made is undeniable. The rest, as they say, is history.

  • Memories of my Sega Saturn days. Can we have a Star Ocean Collection or the games released on psn

  • a few things
    – Crash Bandicoot really isn’t playable on vita? it works in Europe. All I want is my CTR on the go!!
    – No more PSOne games have been added in like a month to the Vita and alot of important titles are still missing.
    – there is one type of mp4 for the vita that use to work but now freezes the system entirely. It happens on my friends system, mine and my bros. I can’t specify the type but its videos from uploadcrazy website embeded on another site.
    – Where in the world is Crackle for PS Vita, it was promised for summer and now it’s winter and everyone acts like it doesn’t exist.
    – Crunchyroll for vita is still coming this year right?
    – and suggested it in the share but a FUNimation app for vita and NeonAlley on it would be great

  • does ratchet and clank require an online pass? long live play

  • Sonic The Fighters is getting a port? What brand of madness is this?!

  • NO WAKE UP CLUB??????????????????????????????????????????????????

  • Where is this fabled Guilty Gear I heard so much about coming during this month? I hope it wasn’t forgotten.

  • IS that the same MIB in PHone

  • Pretty lame drop this week, but after a couple weeks of good drops, its to be expected, Ratchet and Clank is the best one there, but I gotta say it feels like there’s a new Ratchet and Clank every year almost. Also I had no idea there was a sonic fighting game, looked it up online and its one weird creation that’s for sure, Sonic just couldn’t find his identity after those Genesis games could he?

  • Question: When ps vita will have an NBA game?, Why don’t patch nba live 09 so we can use remote play? or drop a nba ps2 version. The psp version is very bad and to be honest the remote play for God of war 1 and 2 was a brilliant idea.

  • Dont foeget the true nba gamers!!
    Putting good nba games on the vita not psp cersion will help the vita sold more.

  • Sonic the Fighters, never heard of this… may have to check it out. Aside from that R&C for me. Unless something interesting pops out of nowhere on Tuesday like usual.

  • More Sega games on Vita!!

  • in the new store when buying longer asks if you want to post on facebook and the search is terrible was better typing the name of the game,as in the previous store.


  • Ratchet and Clank Full Frontal Assault and Sega AM 2 Collection!!!!!!!!

    can we get another Sega Fighters Collection.

    with Virtua Fighter 3TB, Fighting Megamix, and Last Bronx please!!!!

    also Virtual-On: Marz is gonna be released in japan on PSN in 2013.

    can we have that as well!!!

  • What happened to PSone classics? Will we ever get new ones?

  • Agreed. Not liking this one. Where’s Morgan’s PLUS update maybe that will make it better, well i mean last week was terrible for PS3 for plus, hopefully this one would be good.

  • I realize the object is to sell the new device. But this isn’t the way it should be listed.

    Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension (PS Vita/PSP)

    Should Be:

    Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension (PSP/PS Vita Compatible)

    You should not get question on if it is a PSP game or not. I understand that PSP games work on a PSP and might work on a Vita, I also know that Vita games only work on Vita and not PSP, but the listing isn’t worded well.

  • Hi Morgan
    I spent 65 $ in November So I wanna know when I can get my 10$ back? :D

  • Full Frontal Assault is a physical disc? Really? I may wait until January to buy this game on PSN so I can get the Vita version at the same time.


  • Is FarCry3 going to be available on Dec 4th in the psn store I need to know very soon…otherwise I will have to purchase it @ Gamestop.

  • Anyone have an answer ??? I know you can pre-order it in Australia but not here in U.S ???? Kina rediclulous if yous ask me thats why I stopped ps plus !

  • Alot of PS3 members whining about nothing good this week, alot of you haven’t even finished completely the games that you already have.Beat those games 1st if you can sheesh.

  • Still no Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus. Is there a release date for that?
    Well at least i got P4G to keep me occupied

  • The Sega fighters are out this week?! They were announced barely a month ago iirc! Wasn’t expecting them until early next year. Will (re)buy all 3 if there’s a bundle, otherwise I’ll go with just Fighting Vipers.

  • @76
    Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus release date was announced last night.
    “North America” = 4th of December, 2012
    Although he doesn’t specify which countries, so I don’t know if that definitely means the same date for all U.S., Canada and Mexico.

    Release dates:

    For Europe PSN, we’ve been told we have to wait even longer… no specific date yet.
    Xbox Live got the game way back on October 24th… No explanation at all from ARC or Sony on why we’ve had to wait so much longer on PSN?

    Also, I wish I had P4G to keep me occupied, but we still don’t even have P4A yet here in the UK…

  • I’ll be interested to see what price Assault Horizon has been commissioned for. Being that I owned the game ( piece of junk it is mechanic wise… or was since a patch magically appeared today fixing its issues) if it’s anything above $20 I’d say no to it.

    And for those who know the series but not the game, it does not stay true to the usual story writing. If anything it’s more like COD

  • Great drop… still waiting for NFS Underground 2, PS2 clasics

  • @Blind-Lunacy post 13
    The Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix was already announced. It includes KH Final Mix, KH Re:Chains of Memories and KH 358/2 days. Only for Japan though.

  • will the ratchet and clank ffa have pre order bonuses for the vita or only theps3? and one more thing will the vita version have to usethe ps3 version as well to do specific actions if not that will be great because dont own a ps3 only a vita and ps2 with all the r&c games.

  • @80: No, it includes the CG Cutscenes of 358/2 Days.

  • last week was better , but meeeh . I really hoped that this week will be great as well. )

  • @Rey Gutierrez I have been wondering if you guys will release black ops 2 on psn. Some people have reported that when calling customer service they have been told that it will come out in the next few weeks. Is this true? I haven’t purchased it hoping for psn version. Thanks.

  • Virtua Fighter 2 on PSN means I can finally retire my Sega Saturn. Good night, old girl!

  • Eh. Nothing special. Nothing bad either. But. I agree. Kingdom hearts please. Oh, and dark cloud 1 and 2 collection while your at it. Maybe throw Orphen in? Anyone remember that game? Was unique if nothing else.

    Digital era is upon us. So what i really want, is a sony approved memory upgrade, or some type of external memory to work with GAMES. At the very least the ps4(whatever whenever IF) it may be, it needs a multi terabyte memory capacity. At base.
