The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 6/24/2014
The Drop

With the industry-wide excitement of E3 cooling, we have another list of games coming to the world of PlayStation this week. Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark arrives on PS4 and PS3, alongside Valiant Hearts: The Great War.

Celebrating three decades of Transformers greatness, Rise of the Dark Spark features more than forty playable characters across both the single-player campaign and the co-op Escalation mode. The dev team behind Rise of the Dark Spark has made an effort to bridge the generations of Transformers together, linking the worlds of Generation One, the Paramount Pictures films, and also Activision’s Cybertron titles.

Meanwhile, Ubisoft is readying the launch of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, a stylized adventure game for PS4 and PS3. In Valiant Hearts, players witness the intersecting lives, loves, and tragedies of several characters involved in the horror of World War I. See how these stories intertwine, and how brave men and women fought for something larger than themselves.

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

  • For those who don’t know much about the vita, the vita actually has games just that not really a lot of physical one’s are gonna be found on retailers. Also the Vita barely get games made from the US. Japanese games is what comes much to Sony’s handheld, it’s the same as the PSP it had more JP games than US games.

    Here you can check most of the JP games that are coming to the Vita. (along with some that are coming to PS3 as well),13ffff2418-1af-5

    Also for the HDN lover’s like me, Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;birth 1 is coming to the vita this on 8/26/2014 :D

  • Put prices on here please. No reason not to.
    The games i DO know the prices of, valiant hearts (15), rbi baseball (20), blue estate (“as low as” 20) are over priced. We arent idiots,we will just wait for it on plus now that we get two ps4 games a month.

  • Grid Autosport is digital and retail on PS3, isn’t it?

    (wish it were also on PS Vita)

  • Everything about this game looks like a downgrade to me.
    No competitive multiplayer? I actually liked that!
    No High Moon Studios? Now I’m not sure about the quality.
    Including Bay’s Transformers? Now it feels like it’d be ruining the Cybertron games to me…

    Maybe in a year or two after a price drop or used, but certainly not at launch. Hopefully this game just exists because High Moon is already busy on a true third Cybertron game, and Activision just couldn’t pass on the opportunity for a movie tie-in with Age of Extinction.

  • @27 Big Huge discount for PS4 games.(LoL)

    Makes sense to make it worth buying.

  • Still haven’t fixed the ratings system I see

  • Chronophantasma! I’ll be buying it digitally!
    I already own it on the PS3 but I need something on the go.
    I am so hyped to play and practice Izayoi on the go especially now that a Philippine player won the top spot for BBCP at the SEAM 2014 tourney!

    The best part? I get to play with him online! Need to step up my game!

  • Keep up the vita love!!!! XD

  • Glad to see that Atelier Rorona Plus and Blazblue CP are being released this week. Too bad I don’t have the money yet to buy one of them yet.:/

  • Blazblue CP on Vita this week? Oh YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

  • For the PS4, I would like there to be an option to have the library icon all the way on the left instead of the right. Once you have a bunch of digital games and apps, it can be sort of annoying scrolling through all of those. Just seems like there should be an easier way to see your games. I mean this was a problem on the PS3, too.

  • I feel very offended by Z-Run title on the list. Someone in Vita department should commit seppuku.

  • Transformers games are great hopefully this is as good as Fall of Cybertron

  • would love to support natsume with the kemco game but alas i already have it on my computer for free.the original game is called end of aspiration and came with ads. thats why the game was free.but i would say that there are more kemco games still havent played though

  • And with that, the Shin Megami Tensei PS2 releases come to a close. We’ve now got all of the US released titles. I hope this doesn’t mark the end of Atlus’ recent run of titles. They’ve got a lot of PS2 stuff that still needs to come out. Eternal Poison, steambot Chronicles, Rule of Rose (amazing game everyone should play), Dual Hearts, Baroque, Samurai Western, Magna Carta: Tears of Blood. And of course there are some PSOne titles still lacking like Kartia: Word of Fat and oddly enough, the first Persona for some reason. People rally don’t give Atlus credit beyond SMT and they should, Atlus localized some fantastic titles.

  • Xblaze Code: Embry for me this week!. Love how the Vita is getting Japanese love!

  • Will there be a pre-order for Valiant Hearts?

  • man! tons of cool and intriguing games to check out for PS4. great week! wish Transformers had a demo tho. but still plenty of cool games to check out and great content to pick up. thanks!

    any update on N+ and if PixelJunk Monsters will get a sequel or HD release on PS4?

  • Who’re the hoopy froods pushin’ more PSP-native content? ’cause bless ’em, the dearies. (This coming from someone who was coo’ with such content getting into the IGC.)

    Impressed with the amount of Vita content this week, though the two Vita exclusives are…questionable? I’ve never been one for simulators, and while it looks spiffy enough, the last runner outside the mobile standard to’ve hit renown was Runner2, so– Not sure my point, maybe just that this ain’t a show-stopper. Nonetheless, cross-content is good content, since the less users are left without it!

    And, ah, there it is, one of the longest video game titles I’ve ever known.


    (Add two more lines if we’re going by ATHF:TM:TS pronunciation rules.)

  • I saw a question of price change of the game The Last of Us remastered, $ 59.99 to $ 49.99, there will be a refund of the difference through a voucher? I hope so, because I have done a pre order a long time and would find it unfair to have such a price difference for the same game!

  • for those of you asking about the Last of Us Remastered, you should be getting a refund in 5-7 days. I’m not sure how though. I imagine it’ll just be credit


    …YES! WW1 GAME!

    no but seriously I will buy Farming Simulator.

  • Yeahy! Finally Rorona for NA!!!
    I was waiting so eagerly for the NA version to release!!!!!!!

  • Hey Ryan,

    You forgot to add “Another World” for PS4 is coming 24 June. You guys just announced here on the website just last week. Please update your 24 June Drop!!!!



  • Valiant Hearts is a definite buy, but what happened to Another World?
    There was even a post about it coming out on the 24th! =/

  • Hasbro needs to come correct in totality with the Transformers line…things are going crazy from the movies to the series. At the least the games have been promising; not sure about this new one!!

  • Are you guys planning on releasing anything that’s actually good this year?

  • Yes Atelier Rorona Plus, that remake will now complete my Vita Atelier Arland trilogy. Atelier Ayesha Plus is being done next, the one on PS3 was the game that really got me to try this series out. Saw a little from it, and saw a decent little battle system so I was like “hey, this series has some actual gameplay, I’ll get Totori Plus on Vita. I did and first thing was how amazing it looks on Vita, man, people don’t even give respect to the game. It’s one of the cleanest looking games on Vita imo. If only all PS Vita releases had such a clean and sharp look.

  • I preordered TLOU and paid 70$ Will i get a 15$ credit since the price droped at 55$ ????????
    I would buy another game with it lol

  • PS4 needs Star Ocean game; Star Ocean has been on every PS System up to now so why not PS4? I love to see Star Ocean make its way to PS4 with great storytelling, gameplay, graphics, and maybe online co-op or online battle against friends, 2 vs 2 players like Star Ocean Till The End of Time had with online add-on.

    Star Ocean series was my favorite game to play and still to this day. :)

  • I thought Another World was going to be out this week?

    Picking up Blazblue on physical, and will get Farming Simulator physical sometime down the line.

    Tell Ubisoft to go ahead and hurry up with Valiant Hearts on Vita and give me another physical copy to import from the UK.

  • @74
    Star Ocean wouldn’t be likely come in the first year, especially in North America. I’d be shocked if we hear anything from Star Ocean on PS4 before TGS 2015 honestly

  • You know, this might be the last time we’ll see new releases for PSP, PS3, PS4 and PSVita all in the same week at the same time. Also one its a PS2 classic so there’s that as well.

  • Another World was not supposed to be on Store this Tuesday?

  • @77
    Possibly but I won’t write it off, the possibility can likely come 2 more times. XSEED is determined in Releasing the rest of Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Trilogy. The second one should be out this summer and probably the beginning of next year will be the last.

  • They should put up shadow hearts 1&2.God that may be my all time favorite jrpg.

  • hey who we gotta pester to get shovel knight on ps4/vita??? that game looks sick

  • I hope someone sees this. I feel like the vita is not getting anything. I’m still waiting on don’t starve, binding of Isaac, and minecraft. I love my vita so much but soul sacrifice delta has gotten a bit old and I love some action RPGS.

    Vita needs some love.

  • Was Another World delayed? I don’t see any sign of it… but last week’s blog post mentioned it was coming this week.

  • Nuts, I was really hoping for Rogue Legacy this week.

  • Gonna wait till the ps plus free game update around the corner, at least ps4 starting to show a pulse. But on another note, a farming simulator? Its…. ….. …..farming….any idea if sooner or later i can master account two ps4s? Or at least run the second ps4 without the annoying refresh? Make it like my two ps3s run please. Farming…lol.

  • So Z-Run is being launched…I really hope they’ve improved that game….and a lot.Gotta get on that Blazblue and will definitely get Grid later on.

  • @ 64 Bradley_N7 – Forget that…this Transformers game isn’t made by High Moon studios but by the devs of the games made out of the movies….so Rise of the Dark Spark will probably be garbage compared to Fall of Cybertron.

  • ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ

  • I dont know about being excited for certain games but “FRIEND NOTIFICATIONS” would be nice Sony!! C’mon now it isnt much to ask for, it was automatic on the ps3 so it should’ve been the same on PS4……..Dont drop the ball on this one…….!!!!

  • Awe yeah I know what I will be getting tomorrow can’t wait to start broadcasting my game play on twitch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Is Another World coming out tomorrow still?

  • Any news on the Payday 2 patch/DLC? We’ve been waiting for months of “we have no information”

  • Finally! The true purpose I got a Vita, Blazblue Chrono Phantasma, is finally (almost) here! I’ve been waiting for too long. I hope it has a nice Vita player population for online play, because I don’t think the online vs is cross platform!
