The Drop

My goodness! This weekend has been absolutely packed with announcements coming out of PlayStation Experience here in Las Vegas. From new No Man’s Sky footage to the (official) Street Fighter V reveal, it’s been a steady stream of content all for you, the PlayStation family.

And there’s more on the way! Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is coming to PS4 this week. A sequel to the critically acclaimed Guardian of Light, Temple of Osiris once again features multiplayer challenges, puzzles, and a brand new story in Lara’s incredible world.

  • SUIKODEN II !!!!!
    OMG!!! So Happy I have tears in my eye!
    Been waiting on this since 2007 release of Suikoden I.

    Any news on the second week of four weeks of christmas sale? Would like to know if I need to put aside more than $10 for suikoden II.

  • I love tomb raider this is a must buy

  • @12 LUCIFERSGLEAM
    1) PS1 and PS2 titles aren’t come to PS Now no matter how much sony hints at it
    2) Streaming is not an acceptable means of deliver for me.
    3) your response doesn’t answer my question.

  • Finally suikoden ll. I no longer have any psone classics to ask for. Now ps2 is a different story.
    Baldurs gate 1 & 2
    Xmen legends 1&2
    Champs of norath 1&2
    Soul reaver 2
    Blood omen 2
    Legacy of Kain defiance
    Dark cloud 1&2
    Army men rts
    So many great titles for us to request…
    :-D

  • wooo, bring mega man X6-8 and mega man 8 to the classics!

  • Smh, The Drop has been limited enough as it is. I really hope these “shorter” versions of it don’t start becoming a thing.

  • Suikoden 2 is awesome!

    I hope Dragon Quest/Warrior VII gets a digital release soon.

  • how much is suikoden 2 going to be?

  • @duke301: They said it would be playable in multiplayer or single-player.

    blog.us.playstation.com/2014/06/12/lara-croft-and-the-temple-of-osiris/

    Now, I’m not saying you should pre-order it. That was back in June and things change. But I’m guessing the “2-4 players” is there to let people know it has up to 4-player co-op, not to signify a lack of single-player.

  • Asking again about the Driveclub PS Plus Edition.

  • Now where’s “Legend of Legaia”, “Tomba! 2” (in English), and most of all “Brave Fencer Musashi” I have been waiting years for those. Japan at least has “Brave Fencer Musashi” in their store, but not NA?

  • a good drop for once

  • I saw JuJu on PC Gamer. Looks like Devolver Digital’s answer to a Nintendo game – kinda looks like a Donkey Kong Country Returns, Yoshi or Kirby game. It looks surprisingly fun; I didn’t even know it was headed to consoles, but I’ll pick it up….

    Oh and EFFFFF YES. SUIKODEN 2!!!!!!!! Thank you Sony + Konami! Also, thanks Sony + Sega for Yakuza 5 in general; I very much enjoyed hearing about at the Playstation Experience over the Weekend and can’t wait to pick that up next year!

  • Hey, random question US Playstation Blog people; why don’t you make a specific video for “The Drop” every week? Just grab a host (even just for a voice-over) and read out the description of all the new games coming out for each Week’s drop against some footage of it? GOG.com (Good Old Games) used to do that kind of thing with a Youtube video series called, “This Week on GOG”. They were great, and I feel like every service should do it since no gamer could possibly know what all games are every week.

    Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHlJ3oHRquQ&index=2&list=PL_OsMXj7Zay1C8mo_aGThw-T8zLsNr8xm

  • Isn’t the retail version of Terraria out this week for PS4?

  • Suikoden II, PSone Classic — Digital

    Best Christmas, ever!!!!!!!

  • UNCHARTED 4 and MGS V! Oh wait, that’s next year.. :P Tomb Raider should be VERY fun, loved the last “lara croft” one similar to this one that was on PS3 – good puzzles and GREAT game to play with a friend / coop.

  • Suikoden 1 is already in the playstation store. Does it work for Vita now or will it update compatibility tomorrow?

  • ^ – The Escapist is reporting that both games will be fully Vita compatible. This post seems to confirm it:

    blog.us.playstation.com/2014/12/06/its-vita-time-3pp-bringing-more-titles-to-playstation-vita/

    Right now Suikoden 1 is playable on Vita only by transferring from PS3. But apparently it will be directly compatible after tomorrow’s update.

    ***General Reminder: The store usually updates by 2pm Pacific/5pm Eastern every Tuesday.***

  • Suidoken II, great job Sony and Konami, thanks!

  • How come the new games for the monthly lineups like Injustice don’t show up in the free games section in the Playstation Store anymore? Where do you go to see the list of all the free games for the month for all consoles. It used to be easy to find.

  • Now you have to seek out and search each individual game…

  • ^ – That’s a great point, actually. I just checked, and (at least for me) Injustice is in a special box by itself on the “free games” page of the web store. All the other games appear normally, but I missed seeing that one the first time around. I would have missed out on getting it if I hadn’t seen your comment. So, thanks. :)

    …but yeah, kinda lame that it’s not all organized with everything in a normal format so you can add stuff to your cart. :/

  • Looking forward to buying Suikoden II, though I am somewhat glad I don’t have a PS4 yet. I’d be rather annoyed that the PS1 classics aren’t available. Maybe PS4s should be bundled with a Playstation TV.

  • Suikoden II !!!!!! FINALLY!

  • SUIKODEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh and Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams — Director’s Cut and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.

    Good week!

  • Hooray for Suikoden II at last! Now, if Konami and Sony will just let me play Dracula X Chronicles on my PSTV, I could finally stop complaining. (I’m still miffed about spending $15 for a game that won’t play)

  • Yay for suikoden 2! Also, tomb raider is gonna be awesome, way better than that crappy reboot.

  • What is Boss! ??

  • Week 2 Holiday Sales on Ps4
    Killzone Intercept
    Trials Fusion
    NBA Live 15
    Entwined
    Another World
    Ps4’s PsStore Spotlight Ad\Picture says so (go see it if YOU don’t believe STARKILLER), but leads to 1st Weeks Sales.
    So Who’s prone to going ‘Premature’ in the Ps4’s PSN office anyway Ryan? Ps3’s PStore seems to be unaffected tho

  • Hi Ryan! Any news on PLAYSTATION TV new supported games, like Ys: Memories of Celceta or Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles? Please don’t forget about PLAYSTATION TV!

  • BREATH OF FIRE 3!

  • I know this game is the least popular game, but I would like to see PS2’s Jet Li Rise To Honor. That game was fun and AWESOME! That game should be in the PSN store one day.

  • Screw “Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris”. If they don’t want to bring Tomb Raider to PS4, then we should boycott TR games.

  • Thanks for your questions about Boss!

    You better watch out!
    Better not move!
    Better run off!
    I’m telling you why,
    Because Boss! is comin’ to town.

    One of the three Kingdoms you can play is Christmas themed ;-)

    Please check out the Facebook and game pages for more details:

    http://www.fairplaylabs.com/projects/boss/

    What is Boss?

    A humorous frantic-action game with a role reversal twist, where you create and evolve the meanest (or funniest or coolest) princess-eating monster!

    Instead of the usual hero who meets and must defeat a boss at different stages of the game, you are the Boss, who is constantly challenged by a horde of eclectic and puny – but not harmless – heroes.

    Who is the Developer?

    Fair Play Labs – an indie studio in Costa Rica developing games for PS Vita and PS4. @e hope you check out and really like our Boss game, we are sure you will enjoy the level of polish and the challenging gameplay, and please share it with your friends :-)

    Thanks!

  • Super excited to finally be able to get GOT on my PS3, but I have a question:

    I prefer to purchase season passes, as they usually offer a bit of a discount over purchasing the game episode-by-episode, but Telltale seasons usually span a long time, and I’m looking forward to getting a PS4 in the new year.

    Am I able to carry over my GOT season pass to PS4 if I start it on PS3?

  • Freakin awesome, how many weeks have people posted about Suikoden games? I enjoyed the hell out them as well back in the day but won’t b purchasing immediately. Gotta give some props tho for listening to the fans of the game.

  • Any details on when the Minecraft update shown at the Experience event will show up in PSN?

  • Lara Croft, is that just a spin off of Tomb Raider series, well i wonder if it would be as good or better then Tomb raider definitive edition on hmmm

  • Hi, what time will these games be available? i still do not see them up on the PSN store.

    Thanks.
