The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 6/3/2014
The Drop

Amidst the sound of shattered glass, Detective Ronan O’Connor falls to his death, his body crumpled on the pavement below the broken window. But this is only the beginning of his story in Murdered: Soul Suspect, which launches on PS4 and PS3 this week.

In Murdered: Soul Suspect, players take control of Ronan — a troubled detective with a messy past — moments after his own murder. Now as his spirit wanders through the purgatorial world of the Dusk, players must help Ronan harness his newfound supernatural abilities and solve the mystery behind his own untimely demise. But the town of Salem has a dark history as well, and answering Ronan’s questions won’t be easy — especially with hungry demons prowling the afterlife.

Murdered isn’t the only big new game on the block, however. War Thunder is also launching on PS4 this week, and PlayStation Vita Pets is coming to Vita for a more light-hearted gaming experience. You can never have too many puppies.

For a complete list of games coming to PlayStation on Tuesday, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

  • What’s scarier than a ghost…?

    …your own ghost.

  • Ahhhh! GHOSTS! Looking forward to the PS+ stuff this week and E3 is just around the corner! Gonna try to catch it over in Manhattan, on the waiting list but would probably be worth the wait.


  • Hooray for Neptunia! Let the wave of Nep games commence!

  • I ain’t afraid of no ghosts

  • GalatasarayEken

    I was just wondering why we’re getting a sports game for the 2nd month in a row, don’t you think we should mix up genres? Knowing E3 is around the corner I expected some major titles for PS3, you guys are also going to take out Uncharted 3, NBA 2K14 is a different genre but it comes no where near Uncharted :/

  • Really excited about Murdered!! Pulling for that as this years sleeper hit =) likely gonna check out 1001 Spikes as well if the price is right. Cool week for new games. Hope there’s some cool sales this week as well!

  • Man that Murdered: Soul Suspect release date really caught me by surprise. Between that and PS+ this month I won’t have much time to spare.

  • Hehe, Neptune looks soo happy…But my heart is with Noire, dammit!

    IGN may have bashed it (I didn’t actually read their review but the few words they said at the Vita page pretty much told me that’s what they did, even though I knew of some of its shortcomings from those who’ve played the Japanese version), but I’m looking forward to the day my LE comes in teh mail!

    BTW, is PSV Pets F2P or no?

    • I don’t believe PlayStation Vita Pets is free-to-play. We’ll have more details on that game this week!

  • Games!!

    Keeping my eye on Neptunia and Worms.

    Neptunia and Worms. Now that would be a game.

  • @4 You’re right, as Re;birth 1 comes out in months….

  • Ryan, that first post didn’t even have a “drop” pun in it! I’m beyond disappointed…

  • Was hoping for some Suikoden 2 (who isn’t hehe) but oh well. Nothing for me this week new release wise. Hope you got some good E3 sales up your sleeve!

  • @12 But you just made a pun of your own.

  • Only Neptunia PP for me this week, and that’s more than enough for me.

  • Let’s all make bad ghost jokes then!

    Q: Why are ghosts bad at telling lies ?
    A: Because you can see right through them !

  • Excited for Ultra !
    Im ready to fight !

  • I hope some JRPG’s go on sale this week that would be awesome.

  • Wow! Something for everyone. I honestly wasn’t interest in MSS until I watched the video. It looks like it could be a sleeper hit! I’m also looking forward do getting my hands on the beautiful Pixel Junk Shooter. Outstanding Drop this week!

  • Murdered: Soul Suspect looks a lot better than expected

  • Have you thought about including the major DLC releases in the Drop posts? (ie Ultra SF4)

  • Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection YES YES YES YEEEEEEEEEEES! the game im looking foward to the most!! =)

  • pls fix watch dogs I cant play the game $80 game don’t work pls fix

  • this suckssssssss

  • Dear sony I updated my system on Thursday now I can’t get into the store via my ps3 and I want to renew my plus :/

  • This is what I want for my Vita at E3. Grand Theft Auto SA Stories, Godeater 2 coming west, Syphon Filter (Sifer Philton for Ryan)
    inFamous, Grand Turismo, Gravity Rush 2, and I guess while I’m dreaming a Crash Bandicoot Collection. Not getting my hopes up though.

  • Hyperdimension Neptunia.

    More interested in Birth, than the dance game PSP spinoff Perfection.

    Not a Day1, but will be on the lookout for a digital sale.

  • And Definately +1 @26 for Syphon Filter.

    Need to at atleast make the old PSP versions available.

  • Is it the full version of War Thunder or just the Beta that EU has had access to? As in is it more then just air combat?

  • Cool. I totally didn’t expect Murdered Soul Suspect and War Thunder to be out already :D

  • Nothing for me this week. I might get Murdered SS after a price drop or two. And I don’t care for a Nintendogs knockoff on Vita

  • Any word on the last of us due date being confirmed for June as listed in Facebook? yet, retail stores do not have this info yet?

  • I’m excited for Murdered SS It will be the last in the games I got for my birthday. Just platted Wolfenstein, now on to other awesome games.

  • Murdered: Soul Suspect is my most anticipated games o this year.

  • Murdered: Soul Suspect! Can’t wait to play it. I also feel really bad for the people that are going crazy over Hyperdimension Neptunia Idol PP. Little do they know, the game is absolute rubbish and is a total waste of money.

  • Its June already. Waahhhh, i thought i was gonna have a Vita by now.
    I want Neptunia PP (ive heard the reviews and i dont care). Waaaaahhhhhh!!!!

  • Picking up Murdered: Soul Suspect to support Airtight Games and Square-Enix for making/financing a new IP, and to support the mid-tier A/AA game release. If you’re tired of only getting AAA or indie games, then you should support the mid-tier games as well. Just saying.

  • Looking to PS+ and E3 )

  • Does anyone know if the physical release of Playstation Vita Pets in the UK is an actual game card, or a download code in a box? Please let me know before it ships.

  • nice drop this week, War Thunder and Worms is mine! reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly ecstatic about E3! ill be heading to the theater in San Antonio to watch :) somehow i feel this will totally be worth it.

    i even changed my avatar for something i expect to be announced tomorrow :)

  • So nice to see more than one ps4 game out this week. I’ve been waiting for War Thunder since launch, MSS looks interesting, E3 around the corner, thing are looking good.

  • If PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is free for PS4 this month, does that mean also free for Vita since it is a crossbuy? If so, 4 free Vita games this month, wow.

  • Yes! 1001 spikes!!!!!!! Can’t wait to play another split-screen co-op game. I wonder if it really is as difficult as they say? Thank-you Sony, and Nicalis!!!!!!!

  • Will 1001 Spikes and/or Pixeljunk Shooter Ultimate be crossbuy?

  • Also, where’s the new Blogcast?

  • Please put prices. This post is basicaly useless without them.

    For peiple wondering, 1001 spikes is priced as stupidly as the rest of the ps4 indies at $15. I dont know why anyone would even bother buying ps4 games off psn considering plus is supposedto give us two a month sstarting in july.

  • Decided to hold off on Murdered: Soul Suspect until the reviews come in. If it comes in at a decent enough score amongst my trusted reviewers, day one fo shooo

  • yay, excited for soul suspect. also excited for trine 2, even though i’d rather own it, and pixel shooter for ps+.

    just so i understand correctly, all 4 ps+ games will be available at the beginning of the month and will remain freebies until that months ends, right?

  • War thunder, PixelJunk, Trine, and i’m still playing Watch Dogs… between this, E3, the World Cup, Destiny Beta, i surely have June/July Covered.

  • The only game I look forward to this week is Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection. Can’t wait for my Limited Edition copy from the NIS America store to arrive later of the week. :)
