  • Hot shots seems nice. Offering the ZOE games separate is not bad either.

  • 2nd

  • 2nd still good

  • Slow week, huh?

  • The Smurfs and Hot shot golf look good.. i might buy The Smurfs 2 for sure.. i love platformer games

  • What the heck? Where are the vita games!? One game? There’s no way you will have released 85 vita games by the end of this year. Nice e3 lie, again.

  • Crash Bandicoot 2 and CTR: Crash Team Racing working on my Vita finally in NA, I won’t bother ask about the rest cuz these are the main 2 I want. Sony’s PS Vita support especially in NA is completely BS at this point. You aren’t even showing you guys are actually fixing these matters, what happened to Crackle on Vita which was suppose to release a YEAR AGO!!? Crunchyroll finally said the Vita app is coming soon on the Crunchyroll site but that was suppose to be last year. Don’t get me started on crap like Why FFV is the only FF on PS Vita in NA that won’t transfer or download to it? SMH it’s a disgrace at this point and I’m just going to keep at it til I here legit replies THAT are actual answers and not just replies

  • Looking forward to Hot Shots, new trophies for some of the new included characters is nice.

  • When will we receive the codes for the Killzone Mercenary closed beta? Will they be sent out on Tuesday?

  • Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark for me.I pre-ordered it last week.


  • No exclusive vita games?

  • Nothing good.

    Maybe Zone of the Enders is good.

  • Nothing for me this week. Which is fine, because I have plenty to tide me over until Tales of Xillia drops.

  • Come on Sony! You guys are slacking:

    X-Men vs. Street Fighter + Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter
    Capcom vs. SNK Pro + Capcom vs. SNK 2
    SVC Chaos
    Street Fighter Alpha/Zero 3
    Cannon Spike
    Power Stone + Power Stone 2
    King of Fighters NeoWave
    Neo Geo Battle Coliseum
    Capcom Fighting Evolution

    Come on! These are t he HD Remasters/Collections we want to see.

  • Well, hopefully the sales will be good this week.

  • It is all good. I am at least 10 deep with my backlog until PS4!

  • This game sux!

  • Rey, after going to the trouble of renaming it Stealth Inc., the description for it refers to the dlc as Stealth Bastard.

  • Where’s Crash and Spyro for Vita?

  • I wish ZoE was also on the PS Vita!! That is such an awesome game!

  • @15 We? Who’s we? Don’t count me as one of those people. First of all, I have a few reason why your list sucks:

    1. Street Fighter Zero/Alpha 3 is already released as a PSone classic, no need for an HD remaster. What could they remaster anyway?
    2. Power Stone and Power Stone 2 is already released as a collection on PSP. Where have you been all those times?
    3. Capcom vs SNK 2 released as a PS2 classics just last week? Were you not paying attention to last week’s The Drop?
    4. Sony does not have control over an HD remaster/collections for those games. Talk to the developers, not Sony.

  • Um ZoE is already in the store I know because I have it now. what were the games split up or something.

  • Zone Of The Enders games have been split up. Anyways, those who doubt about this series, have in mind that they are awesome games, and the 2nd game is the best.
    There’s also a ZoE 3 in the works, and trust me, that’s something serious to be excited!.

  • @7 how did you get crash working on your Vita? i try moving the game from my ps3 to vita but it wont show up as a selection…

  • I very well remember ZOE way back in the day. It brings good memories of a great time. I think I will most deff have to give ZOE HD a twirl! ;P

  • Any news on when Premium Avatars can be purchased and applied through the Vita?

  • Eh, just need prices on Zone of the Enders. Need to see what the games are about first, though.

    Also, still wanting some more PS2 classics like TimeSplitters, as always.

  • Smurfs 2, Eff yeah!

  • Any news of Lone Survivor?

  • dragoon_slayer12

    i’ve been waiting on ZoE HD for Vita, when the h*ll is that dropping!!?? if it’s been cancelled, can we at least get some type of confirmation!!?? i need my ZoE HD, but i’m not double buying and would much rather have it on the go (as i did with MGS HD)….

  • dragoon_slayer12

    all but 3 are Capcom, the remaining are SNK Playmore

  • Look I am a day one Vita owner and have been waiting for sony to complete the addition of the digital PSP and PSone games for some time. I know these things don’t happen over night but other region have had access to Spyro Crash and MGS portable ops for some time now. How about showing some loyalty to the loyal consumers that still want to buy these games? At least talk about it instead of ignoring us.

  • Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark is all im excited for this week. il buy the DLC also. cant wait to try the level editor. i also hurd everyday shooter will be on sale for only 1$. not sure if thats just for plus members or for everyone. il get that aswell if so.

  • another note, whyyy nottt add the prices along with the drops ? that would be great.

  • Me again, with my usual Sunday plea for Suikoden II to finally get a proper place on PSN. I know I’m not the only one.

  • @7 don’t bother asking those questions on the drop. It’s probably been at least a year since the last time anyone form Sony commented or responded to a question on the drop. Try asking this question on the store update. However I get the feeling that Morgan and Grace have been ordered not to respond about the PSX/PSP Vita compatibility issue and that Ray has mentally checked out of responding to any questions.

  • @25 noo, I don’t have em on my Vita, I’ve been waiting since Vita released to play those on it. Especially CTR because I always played that multiple times a week cause I love Kart racers, and that is my fav one.
    @37 Yeah I have been npticing that, Guess I’ll be hitting up the Updates instead

  • I too have recently been wondering about ZOE for the Vita and if it’s still even on the way??? If it’s not on its way anymore, then at least have the nuts to announce that it’s either been delayed or canceled all together!! OR, if neither of the above is true, then again make it clear to us that the answer still lies somewhere in between…. meaning, you’re still not entirely sure if you want to bring/port the game over to the Vita.

    It would be too bad if it does turn out to be canceled… the ZOE HD collection on the Vita would have been a DEFINITE day 1 buy for me!! And although I’ve never played any of the 2 games, I have watched a few gameplay videos here and there on YT and imo it looks like a really great classic Kojima-type game that would PERFECTLY fit the Vita!!!

    And based on how awesome the MGS collection was/is on the Vita, I would assume that ZOE would be equally as great to play on the Vita w/ some headphones on. So like I said, it would really be a huge bummer if it doesn’t come out on the Vita… lord knows we need more high quality games like ZOE to play on our Vita’s.

  • ^^^^continued^^^^

    There’s been one too many cancelations of what would be quality titles for the Vita throughout these past 6 or so months. It has got to stop… developers/publishers have to be more sure about a game’s future release before they officially announce even a general release date/period. If that does not start happening, Sony risks even more so than now, disappointing far too many people as they make it seem like 1 out of every 2 (50%) games they announce never end up seeing the light of day. You can’t have that happen AND expect Vita sales numbers to improve all at the same time.

    So please Sony/Kojima-san, many times it was stated that the ZOE HD Collection would be released on the PS Vita, correct? Well, you should then not be surprised to find out that some of us bought the PS Vita assuming we would get to play the HD remakes of both ZOE games, correct? Now it’s your turn to follow through with what you claimed. If you cannot do that, then you at least owe it to the people who are both Vita & ZOE fans an explanation in regards to whether the ZOE HD Collection “IS” or “IS NOT” coming out for the PS Vita. Thank you for your time!! ; )

  • Please give us more Vita games and add more PSP games to the Vita’s compatibility list. Thanks.

  • You have way too many errors on this post, don’t you proof read them?

    Describing a new, promotion marketed game as a DLC? using the wrong name on it? using incorrect description on a new PS3 game?

  • Zeno Clash 2, Skyrim with fists!

  • “This Stealth Bastard Deluxe level pack contains 20 brand new levels…”

    first of all, the game’s not called ‘stealth bastard’ anymore – hasn’t been for a while now. second, it’s the core game that’s coming out tomorrow, not the unannounced dlc pack you sloppily revealed by not proofreading your copy before posting it for the world to see. better luck next time!

  • Nothing for me this week…I really want to get Stealth Inc…seems like a good game and lots of fun for me as a stealth lover…but I wont pre-order and I wont buy so soon…since I have a endless backlog.But I’ll buy eventually.

  • This Zone of the Enders Looks AMAZING!! I’ll be sure to get them!!

  • Burnout 3 and Revenge on PS2 Classics! PLEASE!!!

  • I’m good. Just bought “Ride to Hell: Retribution” Looks fun!

  • @31: Ask Konami, it’s their game.

    Sheesh, I don’t know why people always ask Sony about a third party game’s status.

  • @47, I used to play Burnout Revenge so much…would love to bring it back!

    Why isn’t Sony bringing us more PS2 classics?!
