    Frank “Bo” DeWindt II of Aksys Games has confirmed that Blazblue: ChronoPhantasma will have a digital release in North America last month.
    I wish I can give you the link, but the comment policies on PS Blog won’t allow me.

  • When are we getting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows???

  • Please update the store on time this week!

  • Will there be a Day 1 Digital Pre-order for Watch dogs?

  • Yeah, can you please confirm Blazblue Chrono Phantasma will be available digitally on Tuesday as well? Frank “Bo” DeWindt said it would be day 1 digital in this very playstation blog back in February.but I noticed you said in the drop that it was retail with no mention of digital. I’ve had every intention of getting it digitally since that was announced so it would be really frustrating if 2 days before it’s release, come to find out it’s not digital afterall. What’s the situation?

  • Wow! What a crazy release week. I’ll be picking up BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma on Tuesday (already pre-purchased the LE) and there’s quite a bit of DLC releasing out this week as well. Hopefully the PS Store updates on time this week.

  • TNN Motorsports? So frustrating. So many good PS1 classics that loads of people are dying to play (Would love to play these on the go with the Vita). Especially waiting for:

    Megaman Legends 1 and 2
    Jade Cocoon
    Vandal Hearts
    Suikoden 2
    Road Rash
    Rival Schools
    Tecmo’s Deception
    Die Hard Trilogy

  • And how about Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core from the PSP? Will that one ever be ported over?

  • Is Pier Solar not coming out this week?

  • Ryan Clements, PlayStation Vita Ortable.

  • I would getting Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends (Both PS3 and PS4) but I already got my games of the month, MGSV Ground Zeros, Final Fantasy X HD Collection and InFAMOUS Second Son. March has been a blast with games. Can’t wait to see what April brings us.

  • + GamerJon92
    please don’t be stupid. oh…and basic reading comprehension help is easily available

  • I hope we will see a blog on MLB.TV on Playstation 4. Season starts in about one week. Looking forward to that.

  • I’m not even looking at the PS Store for another week or two. I bought FFX HD on both platforms (PS3 just for the LE case, really) and had my Vita in my hands for at least 3 hours a day since it released.

  • @Jisatsu_Kiddo: Seems like your quest to be cryptic and insulting for no reason (while making no sense whatsoever) has been a success! How lovely for you.

    BTW, there will never be prices on the Drop.

    Probably never gonna be DLC and everything else listed because…*drumroll*…that’s not the point. It’s just a list of this week’s releases with demos and betas. THE END

  • TNN Motorsports Hardcore TR? Man talk about random, outdated, and unwanted. The game is named after a defunct channel that is now called SPIKE TV. Who is in charge of your PS1 selection committee? And why are garbage shovelware being selected as PS1 classics. Can’t you guys approach better publishers to put on classic games that people will buy? Not just rednecks. . .

  • “It’s a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezzes are cool!”

  • Picking up Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition(PS4) on Tuesday the 25th!

    Join me for my All Day Launch Stream straight from my PS4!

  • was thinking of getting Deception IV: Blood Ties but then I saw that it had no eng dub. So that means it gets a pass.I dont really wanna hear jpn voice work.

  • Excited for Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends, but undecided whether I should get it for PS3 or Vita. Most likely the Vita version because you can get the original and the expansion for the price of Xtreme Legends itself.

    @generalidiotsimo13 Does anyone else say it’s trash and lame? Nope, just you dipstick. And to answer your question, Sony cares about my money and has been giving me great service for quite some time. Also, I decided to report your comment this time. You done nothing but troll at every drop. Prepared to get banned.

  • Ooo I’m excited for the Conception demo! I’ve been really curious about that but not enough to blindly purchase it, so this might push me over the edge!

  • Yes !! Dynasty Warriors on PS4 and is co-op on the same screen ! I buy !

  • Looking forward to Fez and Destiny of Spirits.

  • Does anyone know whether we get the retail ordered dlc’s of dynasty and deception?

  • In this update:
    And aksys guy said that Blazblue would be day 1 digital and because of that I didn’t preorder. Now it’s pretty much too late to get it by the day it comes out so if it indeed isn’t on PSN, I’m not gonna be happy.

  • I got a plat trophy on Infamous, add some DLC already. Lmao. Ill be getting FEZ for sure.

  • What happened to the PS4 game Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut? Wasn’t it supposed to be released in March?

  • @ generalpissandmoan

    You should really stop acting like you represent America. You’re not doing a very good job.

    “So how much does Sony pay you to bend over for them?”

    So how much does Nintendo pay you to bend over for them? Nintendo is the best, you say? If that’s how you feel, OK, fine. But why are you still hanging around here instead of sticking to Nintendo sites? Jeez, what an absolutely obvious idiot you are.

  • Really looking forward to Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition (such a long title…). I spent about 160 hours on DW7 to get the platinum, and DW:Next wasn’t a very worthy Vita entry. So it’ll be nice to play this on PS4 and get my army-slaughtering juices flowing again.

    I think I remember Fez being listed as $10 on a PS+ discount, so I’ll probably pick that up sometime this week before the discount is gone.
    Yup, here it is>

  • With Toukiden and FFX/X-2 HD, plus now Deception 4 and DW8 incoming for the Vita – looks like my Vita is gonna get tons of playtime. :)

  • Anyone have any idea when Minecraft is supposed to come to the vita? I’d heard it was supposed to be the end of March but I haven’t found a direct date yet.

  • Any reason you guys don’t list pricing with this?

  • I’ve got ten bucks’ worth of credit in my SEN wallet, but dammit, I MUST hold off on FEZ. I’ve already got it and started it on PC, I damn well better finish it (or feel finished with it) at least once, and then — only then — consider getting it spiffier for a second run on PSW[hatever]*. Unless… Well, I’ve always been weak to Plus discounts, so we’ll see which takes longer (hint: track record says me).

    *”hatever”, huh? The Eternal Fez! (And now with the Eternal Tiara in mind, I recommend anyone to watch Petite Princess Yucie. Lotta fluff, but the final stretch especially pulls out some thematic punches.)

  • Deception IV, Blazblue Chronophantasma and The Witch and the Hundred Knight for me this week, will also give Destiny of Spirits a go since I liked what I saw of it a few weeks ago.

  • Any word on Bioshock Infinite’s Burial at sea Ep 2? Its supposed to come out this week too.

  • Any word on a playstation+ discount for Fez?

  • Fezzes are cool.

  • @Unknown406 ( posts 69 & 70 )
    totally Agree , they NEED to add : Tomb Raider Chronicles ( PS1 ) and Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness ( PS2 ) just to complete the series!!
    In case you didnt know , they do have Legends and Anniversary on the “Trilogy” Disk which also includes UnderWorld.

  • My Vita is so happy right now. My wallet is not.

  • + ThumbsOfSteel74
    sometimes i wonder how ignorant children sign into this site.

  • What happened to Pier Solar?

  • Strike Suit Zero?! Strike Suit Zero?! Strike Suit Zero?! Strike Suit Zero?!
    Where is it?! Come on!!

  • You sure there is no digital release for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma ?????

  • @Jays1Fan (post 93)

    I already have Tomb Raider Underworld Digital Version for ps3.

    i would just love to have Tomb Raider Legends and Anniversary ps3 version on my ps3 to add to my collection.

  • That game Fez,I wasn’t paying much attention to it but looks like a good and fun game,may have to take a look into it.As a fighting games lover I always wanted to try Blazblue but never had money for it,now I got the Vita one thanks to Plus but the problem now is time to actually play it,looks like a great fighting game…also that Deception IV:Blood Ties…I dig the dress of that woman…I mean she looks great on it lol.

  • Hey, whats up with the walking dead season 2 release on VITA? They keep saying “the end of march.” There has got to be an exact date already, if we’re that close to March being over, right? I still have my PS3 but I only play my PS4 and want to save awesome games like the walking dead for the Vita.

    Any updates?

  • @ 90 Teh_AKOD – Oh I’m waiting for that too…actually I can’t wait.Although they don’t list DLC in the drop I think its coming tomorrow…hopefully.

  • whre da hell is minecraft?
