Binary Domain The Machine Age has begun in the immersive and atmospheric squad-based shooter Binary Domain. Regain control of a futuristic Tokyo from an emerging robotic threat in the year 2080. The story starts when Dan Marshall and his squad are sent to bring the robotic community under control as they begin to infiltrate society and slowly take over undetected, leaving humans redundant in their wake.


Fighting through the derelict lower levels of the city, players control an international peace-keeping squad that soon starts to question their surroundings and the choices they make. Are the robots becoming more human, or are humans becoming more like machines?

NCAA Football 14 (Also on PS3 Blu-ray) — NCAA Football 14 unlocks the unpredictability and innovation of the college game. The new physics-driven animation system and a completely re-engineered spread and read option game influence the outcome of every moment allowing you to stay true to the game.


Aabs Animals (PS Vita) — Aabs Animals is a augmented reality pet simulator for the PlayStation Vita by Aabs Inc. It projects a virtual kitten onto the Vita’s camera image, and lets the player pet it using the touchscreen.

Coconut Dodge Revitalised (PS Vita) — Coconut Dodge came out at the turn of the decade and won plaudits and even mentions in Kotaku and IGN. It opened doors which we then pushed open even further with Velocity – which was inspired by many of the mechanics in Coconut Dodge. Unusually the game was popular with both guys and girls – that was particularly gratifying. (Read More: PSBlog EU)

  • Why did it take so long to get LEGO: Legends of Chima Laval’s Journey on PSN? :/ Platinum’d the game a few days ago.

    And for anyone wondering, despite not taking advantage of Vita to it’s fullest, it’s still a lot of fun. And since there’s no console version, the pre-rendered cutscenes actually look great on Vita and the game in general isn’t held back by the inevitable differences that arise from the LEGO games also on consoles. If you like LEGO games, give it a go.

    @10: I would buy the heck out of a MGS Portable Collection of some kind.

  • Nice!!! Binary Domain!! Def will double dip to get a digital copy on my harddrive. Thanks Sega! Now release Yakuza 5 in NA pleeeeeeeeeeeasssseeee

  • Binary Domain is awesome. Played 4 different 3rd person action over christmas. Binary domain, Spec ops Line, 007 Blood stone, Max Payne3. and Binary Domain was my favorite.

    Classic (noun) A work of art of recognized and established value. Examples of PS2 classics are SSX Tricky, Dark Cloud 1 and 2, Mark of Kri, Viewtiful Joe, Burnout 3 Takedown, Dragon Quest 8 and Gran Turismo 4 . Give us some of these games or perhaps change the category from “PS2 classics” to “Random PS2 games nobody ever asked for”.

  • death_nation100

    I got to get my hands on Metal Gear : The Legacy Collection.

  • Already got my hands on my copy of the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection. Already own the games already, but I want to play Peace Walker again on HD.

  • Please add the Mega Man X PSone Games on the PSN store so they can be bought and played by Vita and PS3 owners. I have no clue why such an important PSone game has never been on the store. It’s real dumb how the only Mega Man games we got are 4 JAPANESE classic Mega Man games. Where are the X games that everyone loves? Step it up guys

  • @51

    I wouldn’t get too attached to Lego Games. Microsoft is cooking up a Time Warner partnership. Yes, that would mean MS would have exclusive rights to all ’em Legos. Those sneaky buggers.

  • starscreamerx31

    I seriously require metal gear portable ops to be vita compatible stat, i mean theres money to be had right? I wouldn’t mind seeing ff7 crisis core as well!!

  • Dangisuckatgamin

    I’ll pass on everything, VITA players have yet another reason not to whine (since a lot of them do).

  • Kinda weak week.

    We need more Warriors PS2 classics! I was never a fan of the tactics series, the originals of either Samurai or Dynasty would be better.

  • To whoever put Castle Shikigami 2 on the PSN: I love you forever. Best shmup ever.

  • Picking up the MGS Legacy Collection this week, I already own them all on ps1/ps2/ps3 as well as the HD collection with the artbook, but since this one has a different art book, 2 graphic novels, and VR missions, I have no problem shelling out another 50 for my favorite franchise. Can’t wait for MGS5!

  • @61 I agree with you. Europe got Dynasty Warriors 4, Dynasty Warriors 4 Empires, Dynasty Warriors 5, Samurai Warriors 2, Samurai Warriors 2 Empires and Kessen III. At least we got Warriors Orochi and Dynasty Tactics 2. But we could always use more.

  • i saw MGS The Legacy Collection being sold at an early release date.

    already have my amazon order shipped so good thing i didn’t buy it first hand.

    Binary Domain is amazing!!! wish we have Binary Domain X Vanquish game in the near future!!!!

    also no Metal Gear Rising Armor DLC?? come on now Konami!!!!!!

    i want that White Armor please!!!!

  • I’m waiting for my physical copy of MGS!!!

  • @54: It’s marketing. Accept it and move on.

  • Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection going digital @_@ ? Thats crazy and lots of GB … But I think I’ll pick the physical copy since it has an awesome 100 pages Artbook for free and all of the main games beside Portable Ops that still is a canon in the main series according to Metal Gear Solid 4 Database and it’s not compatible with Vita which is sad x(.

  • I have to say that I’m a little bummed that Portable Ops does not have a PS3 version.

    It’s the only canon story I need a portable to play and that’s annoying. I would probably have picked up the Legacy Collection if it had included it.

    Still, for all my friends who haven’t played the series before, I’ve been recommending Legacy to them.

  • @#26 I bought it retail too, it is a really fun game! I know that so many won’t give it a chance. Good to see it on PSN now though.

    Give it a try everyone. If you can stand LEGO, it’s worth the buy. I love it! I actually have some of the LEGO models that are in the game. It’s a handheld only game, so getting it on the PS Vita is the only option in this the PlayStation world.

  • And where’s Crash and Spyro on Vita?

  • Never a real fan of Dynasty Warriors, the Dynasty Tactics titles are a FANTASTIC foray into something huge and grandiose. I can’t wait to pick this one up tonight!

  • DarthSchrader666

    It’s 4:52 P.M eastern standard time. WOULD YOU JUST CHANGE THE STORE ALREADY?! And why no “drop” on this weeks new DLC? No new “Injustice:GAU DLC=LAME BTW. And I don’t care about those “trendy lame” games you keep on pushing. JUST CHANGE THE STORE please.

  • DarthSchrader666

    Gee, I bet that store would be changed already if DLC for that wanna-be gun owning game “COD” was set for today. Love how these companies “play favorites” when it comes to certain things. All well.

  • DarthSchrader666

    It is now 7:07 eastern standard time & whosever responsible for changing over the store must be SLEEPING ON THE JOB. I work in retail & if me & my co-workers are LATE on doing certain tasks, our customers usually go SOMEWHERE ELSE if we don’t keep up “our share”, so I’m going to remember this(along w/ other PSN “flaws”), when PS4 hits the shelves. It would be nice if the guy who does “the drop” would have put UPCOMING DLC ON or I wouldn’t have WASTED MY DAY just trying to find out what’s new on that “UNRELIABLE” store. All well, gotta go because some of us actually does WORK at our jobs & if we’re late on stuff, customers go somewhere else. BTW, I heard X-Box BEEN HAVING their store changed over. The jokes on us PS3 owners, I guess.

  • Tokyo Jungle shows up in the mobile store but its giving an error code. Anyone else getting this?

  • DarthSchrader666

    Another example of PSN “fine” service, LOL!

  • #77 lol, yep

    Anybody play Legends of war Patton? Looks good but the reviews on other platforms are a little mediocre. I was hopeful the vita version would be decent.

  • seganintendoubi

    For PlayStation All-Stars fans, Dart from Legend of Dragoon was going to be DLC, but was canned due to the low sales of Zeus and Isaac. However, the official All-Stars forums have started a campaign to convince Santa Monica to make Dart. We could really use your help! Visit the official All-Stars forums for more details. Thank you.

  • #79 link?

  • Still hoping to one day see Suikoden II on PSN, as well as Valkyrie Profile in some form (PSN of Lenneth or PSOne classic).

  • Worst blogger ever!

  • Where is any news of Everybodys golf for the PS3 in Europe , DLC catchup with Japan for the PS Vita and lastly whats happenong in the Golf World on the PLaystation 4
