The Drop

What a weekend! Not only do some folks in the United States have a little extra time to play video games over the holiday, but it’s PAX Prime 2014! What better way to celebrate than getting ready for an interstellar mission teeming with teleportation, alien baddies, and super-cool effects? Velocity 2X is coming to PS4 and PS Vita this week.

Velocity 2X tasks players with outrunning and outsmarting the evil Vokh in white-knuckle space combat. Pilot your ship through precarious mazes, and head on-foot for even more up-close-and-personal challenges. Master the use of your teleporting to blink through missions with blinding speed, and accomplish objectives with the steady thump of a sci-fi ready soundtrack. Velocity 2X is cross save, cross buy, and free for PlayStation Plus.

But that’s not the only good news! Fan-favorite survival game Don’t Starve comes to Vita this week, alongside Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. For the full list of new games coming to the world of PlayStation, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

  • Happy PAX weekend! Travel safe, everyone!

  • All these games are playable on Vita, crazy!

  • Everything this week is available for Vita :D !

  • Which type of Mahjong is that? Just wondering.

  • True week for PS Vita Fans!!!!

  • Deathmatch village is a really bad game… I thought it didn’t come out in the US for a reason.

  • Its Danganronpa time again feel like becoming detective conan again…as for the free us plus game not interested at all

  • Ready for Danganronpa. Gotta love the cinematic death endings!!

  • Sweet, can’t wait to play Velocity 2X on my Vita. I like the love that the Ps Vita is reciving lately. Hey Ryan, have do you know something about Gravity Rush/Daze 2?

  • Im almost done with Danganronpa 1 and pre ordered the Danganronpa 2 limited edtion. Just waiting for it to come in

  • Sweet! Mega Man X4 on my vita will be awesome!

  • Any word on Suikoden II?

  • Hmm, coulda sworn Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate was this week as well.

  • Hmm, strange. The Vita has no games, yet…

    oh no…

    How do I hold all these games?!

  • Fantastic week for the Vita. Danganfreakinronpa!

  • Excited for more mega man!

  • Hey Ryan first beyond and second thanks for what you do for the blog question are you guys gonna go back to the o!d format of telling us what’s going to be discounted on monday so that way we are prepared for tues when the store updates I really liked how you did that it gave me a good heads up of what’s going on sale when the store updates thanks

  • I hope I can see the complete mmx serie soon

  • Also, what GothicRoch83 said. Having a heads up on discounts was nice, and this change is the most frustrating (although I still love you so, so much). It’s kind of bad that the store updates with sales before the blog is actually updated a lot of the times.

  • Megaman X4 classic? My prayers have been answered n.n

  • CROSS+ 2x :-D

    So happy the day is nearly upon us for Velocity 2X

    Also happy to see MMX4 releasing this week. I just grabbed MMX1-3 on VC for Wii U. Hopefully we’ll see the MMX Collection and MMX7 come to PSN. Too bad we’ll never see HD Remasters of these titles with fully realized 2D engines build to run on 3D GPU. Love to see it get all gussied up to look like Velocity 2X, 16:9, and still play and feel like the original games right down to preserving the original elements of the game. Maverick Hunter just broke MMX.

  • Hey Don’t Starve on the Vita!! Perfect game for it!

    Kinda related note, could you guys please put together a list of Vita/PSP games that’ll be compatible with the upcoming PSTV? Thinking about picking one up but there’s a few games that NEED to work on it for me to jump onboard. Thanks!

  • Although there aren’t many big name games on the way there are a ton of really fun games. The PS Vita is really hitting its stride. Keep em’ coming PlayStation! But please give the Vita more attention at the game shows.

  • Do you know if Minecraft PS4 will be out this week?

  • Finally get to play some Don’t Starve on the go and Danganronpa 2. Looks like I’m going to have to make some space on my Vita again, so excited!

  • Wow I’m sure glad I got a PS4 and had to get PS plus to play multiplayer games, but i thought hey at least I’ll get some free games….

  • “Do you know if Minecraft PS4 will be out this week?”

    I imagine that would have gotten a mention.

  • Please stop saying there are no games on the Vita.

    DanganRonpa 2 and Velocity 2X for me this week!!

  • No mention of Warriors orochi 3 ultimate?

  • @20 Awesome, isn’t it? And Capcom announced X5 hits next week so 6 surely isn’t far behind. Maybe we’ll get the two PS2 X titles as I’d love to paly them. I heard X7 wasn’t so great but 8 was supposed to be amazing.

  • I just bought the new game from the Mega Man creator for 3DS, Gunvolt: Azure Striker, it’s good. My brother and I had one of the Mega Man X games for PS1 when we were younger, I am still not that big into Mega Man, possibly because I would have a ton of catching up to do.

  • Awww yeah, Danganronpa 2! Tuesday cannot come soon enough.

  • Any chance the TikGames PS3 titles (Cuboid, Magic Orbz, Mahjong Tales, Wakeboarding HD) will be coming to Vita?

    A lot of my favs from the early days of PSN have already been ported, would be nice to see those come as well. (Would love to see a new cross-buy version of Geon: Emotions — the local and online multiplayer in those games was ridiculously fun!)

  • I thought the following would be out this week. I guess the following has been pushed back to next week. Just keeping my gaming calendar in check.

    – Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate – PS4
    – Minecraft – PS4, PS Vita

    Those that like to follow a gaming calendar on Google Calendar for PlayStation Games from PS4, PS3 and PS Vita fill free to follow or bookmark the page. Thanks.

  • Since Capcom is bringing Mega Man X4 & X5 to the Playstation Store. Would it be possible for them to bring Mega Man 8 to the store as well. I really want to watch and hear the anime cut scenes for that game again.

  • Thanks for the news Ryan! I can’t wait for Velocity 2X! Beyond!

  • Hey, I just noticed that Rogue Galaxy came out in the Japanese PSN store, any chance of it hitting the states? I’d really love to play it alongside Wild Arms 3!

  • upupupupu (ʳ ´º㉨ϟ)ʳ

    Been waiting on DR2 for a while. Bring on Tuesday!

  • Kingdom hearts please! I want to play it with a passion but psi can’t play ps2 games! ?

  • Wut? Where is Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate for Vita? I wanted that AAA this week :(

  • Mega Man X4 on the drop? What kind of black magic is this O.O

  • I’ll give you guys an E for effort this week since I never had a chance to play Mega Man X4. Still, we need more PSOne rpg’s though.

  • Come on Minecraft pass cert already! I need you on my PS4! Next week! *crosses fingers*

    With that said, I’m totally looking forward to Velocity 2X. I’ve never played any of the other Velocity games before but I hear great things about it all the time especially on BEYOND!

  • wow, i have to say ever since i upgraded to ps4 ps plus , its been very disappointing ,games are worthless and no additional content , hardly any discounts worth buying ,

  • Insanely packed week for Vita. Sweet.

  • WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW, MEGA MAN X4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can’t believe my eyes, it’s a dream, somebody give a slap in my face, please!! haahahahha

    Are there any chances to X5 and X6 show up too? Or maybe Mega Man X Collection for PS2 classics?

  • How come psone classics still arent playable on the ps4? Is the ps4 that inferior tothe ps3?

  • MEGAMAN X4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I wish they released megamanx hd collection
