  • Don’t Drop that fly ball!

  • Hey Ryan, Would it be possible to put prices on the new releases when you Drop?

    • Hi Lodi!

      Thanks for the note! This post is more just to provide a “heads-up” of what’s coming — our PlayStation Store update post on Tuesdays provides pricing, sales, discounts, add-ons, and the like!

      Cheers. ^_^

  • God of war collection?!? Omg there will be blood in my vita!

  • Hey Ryan, doesn’t Sly Cooper Collection come out for Vita this week as well? Thanks!

  • Cool, will pick up Titan Attacks! on Vita.

    Waiting for my retail copies of Borderlands 2 & God of War Collection. Also the Sly Cooper Collection at the end of the month.

    May is delivering.

  • Solid drop. Only picking up Stick It To The Man this week, but there are plenty of other games I wish I was getting!

  • I want MLB the show 14 for the PS4… I can’t wait to play it. It’s gonna be the best version of the series by far. If this game doesn’t make every player look life like IDK what I would do.. I also play it so I can play as The Cardinals, and in my game they would never lose a WS ever again. GO CARDS..

  • Sportsfriends and BL2 for me!

  • I’m kinda on the fence about getting Borderlands 2 on the Vita. I’m a big Borderlands fan but I don’t think the Vita and it’s controls can handle the game.

  • Any chance Borderlands 2 happens to be Cross-Buy?

  • Cant wait for MLB 14! Thats the main reason I switched to the PS family!

  • Hey Ryan, is MLB 14 the Show (PS4) available for pre-download as one of the first possible games to utilize that recent firmware feature? If so, when?

  • pretty lame that you are making me buy someones borderlands 2 code on ebay instead of just launching it on 5/6

  • Could have swore Watch Dogs was going to be the first game to be able to be pre-downloaded.

  • Can’t wait to take my diamond backs to a winning season on The Show. Beyond!!!

  • Hey Ryan! Beyond!

    Any chance we will be able to pre-load MLB the Show 14? I hear its a doozy in size.

  • Not bad content for Vita. But we really need less ports and more original Western IPs in the future

  • Great Borderlands 2 and GOW collections will be mine :) best games always Vita only :D

  • Hey, isn’t Transistor coming out this week too?

  • yay Broken Sword!!! I was jealous Europe got it before us. I hope we get episode 2 more quickly. Broken Sword 3 was one of our fav adventure games on the original Xbox, I’d love to see an HD version come to PS Vita/4.

    Based on my experience with Borderlands 2 at GDC, I’m going to hold off on purchasing until they’ve had a little more time to optimize it. While I appreciated the texture streaming, quite of a bit of the environment was just plain ugly textures that didn’t stream at all, and the level-of-detail on enemy models was way too low when using the sniper rifle. Given how great the post-release support for Killzone Mercenary has been, I’m sure Borderlands 2 will get great improvements in the months following release :)

  • Okay, nevermind Transistor comes out on May 20th.

  • Titan Attacks also looks interesting.

  • So happy to finally have Sportsfriends available after playing it multiple times at GDC and PAX over the last year. I love that there’s a good stream of games with Move support arriving on PS4. (Now we just need more stereoscopic 3D games @ 1080p60…)

    I really like Stick it to the Man’s art on PS3 (reminds me a lot of Liquid Television), so I’m excited to see if in 1080p native with improved texture quality. I’m so happy they made it cross-buy with Vita version, unlike other indie publishers.

  • So glad there are no new games I want. I have enough on my plate already between PS4 and PS3

  • Great. Now can we get a fully working YouTube html version? No, I don’t want the mobile version. Just want to put on my Gold Wireless headphones on and enjoy YouTube as it should be. Thanks, Sony.

  • HBOGO for PS4 ?

  • Oh Maaaayyyyy….

    Borderlands 2 and God of War Collection!

    I can not believe a year passed so fast. I remember all the tweeting we did to bring Borderlands 2 to Vita last a year and a half. Wow.

  • I realize this answer is probably a no, but is the God of War collection cross-buy digitally?

  • I’ve got Bound by Flame and God of War Collection preordered and am just waiting for them to arrive. Birthday presents to myself. This week is going to be a great gaming week.

  • PS2 Classics wish list:
    – Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria
    – Silent Hill: Origins
    – Obscure 1 & 2
    – Forbidden Siren 2

  • Yay!! for the Show!! Got it pre-ordered on the PS Store, hope it’s ready to go at midnight east coast time..

  • 2 weeks till I get what I REALLY want. Lots of stuff for people to get in this drop though.

  • MLB 14 Pre-loading? Is this going to happen?

  • Hey ryan can we pre download bound by flame before Tuesday , ps4 version thx

  • Also why on earth we still dont have new avatars on Ps4 ps store , i gave my ps3 to my nephew so im stuck with the 2006 avatars in 2014 bloody unbelievable

  • Beyound Ryan. Can’t wait till Borderlands 2. Also looking forward to Bound by Flames. Great drop this week as always.

  • Any idea if Stick it to the Man is cross-buy?

  • Bound by flame enough said, and beyond!

  • Yeah i gotta give Bound by Flame a try and keep up the hard work guys =D

  • Any word on when MLB14 The Show will be available for pre-download? We are suppose to be able to download pre-orders 3-4 days early with the new update… I purchased the pre-order 2 days ago on PS4, but still cannot download the game and it releases tomorrow at midnight!! Thanks!

  • Any chance that GoW collection is cross buy?

  • Hey Ryan,

    Another great week of games for Playstation Nation!

    I plan on picking up MLB 14 The Show (pre ordered at Gamestop), possibly Titan Attacks if PS Plus get’s a discount and the price is right. Lastly, I will be downloading Stick to the Man.



    P.S. Any news on games for the PS4 for 13 May? I don’t see anything announced right now, but you guys have a habit of dropping a announcement the week prior.

  • Broken Sword is an amazing game, glad to see it :D, i hope you can introduce all the series of b. sword, also i hope to see soon a
    killer 7 on ps2 classics. (sorry bad english)

  • May the Fourth be with you. ^_~

  • Watch out for that Revenge of the Fifth! =P

  • God of War Collection cross buy with PS3?

  • I would also like to know if GOW is crossbuy. I have the God of War Saga on PS3, would be awesome if could get GOW on vita now as well!


  • Nice ! I can’t wait to get helldivers!

  • @ Clements answer to #2.

    I see no good reason to not include prices in this post. A “heads up” is useles. We already have those on the blog. Basically every game gets a post. So we know WHEN they come out, but not how much. Or if they can be pre-loaded. And sometimes, we still dont know, two days before release, if we can preorder.

    My grocery store sends me a flier every week with about a thousand different items in i and every one has a price next to it. No guessing, no waiting til the sale starts, just giving me the info i need.

    Since its been more than 5 minutes since you posted, i know you wont read or respond. Just know more info is always better.

  • To everyone asking about MLB The Show 14 pre-load: It’s not happening. The last update enabled the possibility for pre-loads, and they announced that Watch_Dogs would be the first game to take advantage of the feature. It releases in three weeks. So, nothing coming out before the 27th will have a pre-load option. There, I just answered people’s questions for the next two weeks as well.
