The Drop

Singe the rainy streets of Seattle with neon footprints, or sneak through a military compound as a legendary hero; it’s a colossal week for gaming, as both inFAMOUS Second Son and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes arrive on PlayStation.

Sucker Punch’s critically-acclaimed, open-world series continues this coming Friday with inFAMOUS Second Son on PS4. Imbued with incredible powers, protagonist Delsin Rowe clashes against the Department of Unified Protection in glorious displays of smoke and neon. Fight the oppressive institution, expand Delsin’s super-human abilities, and explore a massive digital Seattle along the way.

For fans of stealth and political intrigue, the next chapter in Hideo Kojima’s sweeping espionage action series arrives on Tuesday. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, which serves as a prologue to the upcoming Phantom Pain, finds Big Boss infiltrating a military base in Cuba. With a redesigned interface, multiple missions, and a new open-world design, Ground Zeroes promises an unrivaled degree of freedom in the Metal Gear universe.

For a complete list of games and demos coming this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

  • @neuropunk no I can’t link proof but I do know where you can find proof look for sakura minsmidas blog about it all the details of the final fantasy x/x2 hd release is there all you need to do is a little bit of research.

  • finally ready to get my hands on Infamous.

    anyone know if Stealth Inc is a cross buy for those who had it on PS3?

  • I got inFAMOUS pre-ordered, just wish Metal Gear and FFHD was too($10 Credit). Oh well, when I get in from work tomorrow, I have a lot to download.

  • Dying for a racing game on PS4. Driveclub or GT or something good!

  • Beyond! So is the store going to update again on Friday for Infamous whats going on with it?

  • What are the chances of the update going live tonight at midnight when it becomes tuesday? I really want to dive right into final fantasy x as soon as possible.

  • Cannot wait this week is amazing!
    FFx/x2 for vita tomorrow and Infamous Second Son Friday!
    Thank you Ryan!

  • Why can I not pre order GZ on my ps4

  • Hey I was wondering what time games normally added to the PlayStation Store? Because I was hoping to have MGS Ground Zeroes downloaded before I leave for school in the morning.

  • How about Sony releases a new system patch already, or has the whole 1.61 bricking people’s PS4 systems escaped their memory, hard to be excited for any of these games when my system can’t do basic tasks because of that broken update, read your forums support page Sony, it’ll help all of us quite alot!

  • Does Final fantasy X/HD release on the psn tonight?

  • @dabnikka it’s possible if the PlayStation store updates but not sure I staying up all night to find out.

  • Ground Zeroes just went up on PS4 store. Already almost done downloading thank god!… but only 4GB so it must be real short.

  • Well it’s Tuesday already seen some changes to the ps store hopefully final fantasy x/x2 hd goes up soon.

  • Still no Final Fantasy X/X2 really want to play them right now. Come on sony. I read somewhere that Final Fantasy X/X2 is already life on the EU store. It almost seems like EU has it act together more than USA store which is really sad.

  • @drjones I think they are working on adding things to the store now I noticed some changes already the European store is on different times than us so that’s probably why it is already live there.

  • 03:18 will be the day to travel to Ground Zeroes and back To Zanarkand.

  • @+XxMalfoyXx I hope soo I am really looking forward to playing them again. I hope they show up soon instead of tomorrow afternoon/evening.

  • @drjones yes I hope so as well like I said I noticed a few changes to the is store final fantasy x/x2 are my favorites out of that entire series so I know how you feel.

  • its march 18th i stayed up for the release i guess its not a midnight release :*(

  • Sad to see the Final Fantasy X/X2 was not added to the store looks like it will be added latter today hopefully we won’t have another store update like last week.

  • I’m grabbing FFX/X-2 HD for the Vita, so at least I can play when the wife goes to bed. Missed these gems during the PS2 days and this is my first time to actually play them. Can’t wait to experience these games for the first time.

  • Does anyone know why it’s not on playstation store yet? EU store has it for pre-order for the 21st, but since us release is today the 18th, why is it not anywhere to be seen?

  • @172 the store probably hasn’t even updated yet.

  • 9:00 EST and no update. Sorry guys looks like there’s going to be a wait. Anyway, Sony is there any chance we could be given an approximate standard so we don’t wait up all night like it looks as though some have or end up getting up early and not being able to start?

  • No need to get worried guys. The PSN store usually doesn’t update before noon. With that said, you can expect to download the games at about 12:00 CST. Another important notice: Those who are waiting for the digital vita version of FFX/X-2 will have wait a couple of hours longer. I have no idea why, but the Vita store always updates later than the PS3 store. If you have a PS3, you can simply download the Vita game there and transfer it to your handheld. Let’s hope Sony won’t let us down today and get their stores updated at noon.

  • Cant wait to try the new metal gear hope its gonna be awesome

  • Yaiba looks awesome, but I am definitely getting J-Stars from the Japanese store tonight!

  • Where is this game on psn?

  • Sure wish some good games would come out for the ps4. I did not spend a crap load of money on an “advanced next gen game console” to play freakin atari style indi games. If they would have given us backwards compatibility, ps3 to ps4, we would have good games to play. SONY FIX THE DAMN BLUETOOTH ON PS4 SO I CAN USE THE SONY EARPIECES, I AM SICK OF THIS WIRED THING GETTING IN MY WAY WHILE PLAYING A GAME.

  • Is FFX going to be on the psn store for ps3? All I see is vita

  • When will Final Fantasy X/X-2 remaster be available on the PS Store for the PS3?

  • All I can say is HOoooollly Crap. Ground Zeroes on the PS4 BLEW my friggin mind…. the FOX Engine is just so sick looking and it feels so real. It’s almost spooky.

  • Still no digital release for Final Fantasy

  • You would have thought that after last week’s 2 day late store update without keeping us in the loop with a time frame you guys would have made sure the store was updated on time this week.

    When do I need to check back? Later tonight? Tomorrow? Next week?

    Seriously get your act together. And before the trolls come out this isn’t the only problem I’ve been having with Sony. It’s just the current one so keep your fanboy comments to yourself. Paying customer right here

  • This is ridiculous… Last week the store updated 2 days late and I’ve been preparing for FFX/X2 for a while now. I’d really like to play it already. C’mon Sony…

  • This is pathetic. Its after 8pm est and still no update. Is there a plan to extend the spend $60 get $10 deal or are we going to get dogged in multiple ways?

  • Again the weekly update is late. Again the biggest problem is that there is 0% communication about it on the home site.

  • What annoys the hell out of me is that if you login and go to the store, there is no way to know if it has been updated unless you know for sure what is supposed to be new. Maybe they could have an option to see the status of the store that shows the date and time it was updated so I don’t have to turn on my PS3, login to the network, click on the Playstation Store, wait for it to take forever to load and open ( HATE the new store the old one was far superior ) and then scrounge around the store to determine if it has updated or not.

    So annoying.

  • I bought and download MGSV GZ for PS4 day one there was no pre-order option for the PS4 version do I get the mother base codes? Or just people who preordered the PS3 version???

  • i have to say that sony is killing microsoft with these games. The xboxone never had a chance.
