The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 12/16/2014
The Drop

One of the most stylish fighters in gaming comes roaring back to PlayStation this week with an over-the-top whirlwind of special moves and supers. Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- is coming. Let’s rock.

The latest Guilty Gear preserves the insane pace and combat mechanics of its predecessors while hitting the visuals with a lightning jolt of modern finesse. Xrd -Sign- marries 2D and 3D graphics together in a way few games do (and even fewer do with such aplomb). Anyone itching for a good fight this holiday (Who isn’t?) should look no further than what is sure to be a new era for the Guilty Gear series.

And that’s just the start. Loadout brings just about a billion different weapons to PS4 in a gory fragfest for shooter fans, and… holy smokes! Metal Gear Solid 4 has arrived on PlayStation Store!

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

Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign-
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Tetris Ultimate

New PlayStation Games This Week

Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign-
PS4, PS3 — Digital, Retail
Now in glorious 3D, jaw-droppingly, gorgeous visuals combine with intense, heart-pounding action to create one of the greatest fighting games of the new generation! Experience the greatness of ARC System Works with Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- for PS4 and PS3.
PS4 — Digital
Loadout is an outrageous new multiplayer shooter that’s all about the guns, baby! Build a massive variety of absolutely insane weaponry — billions of combinations — totally customized, totally unique, and totally deadly. The robust and modular Weaponcrafting system allows players to make their own weapons from a wide variety of weapon parts, and then modify their entire arsenal to suit their play style.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
PS3 — Digital
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is set in a battle-scarred future where huge conglomerates fight for supremacy using armies of hand-picked mercenaries. This devastated world is seen through the battle-weary eyes of an older Solid Snake who has been charged with infiltrating a number of key locations across the globe.
Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD
PS Vita — Digital
It’s up to you to help guide Munch in an effort to rescue fellow test creatures. These critters will be forever loyal to Munch and in turn enable his escape . Once free, Munch teams up with Abe and together they are guided by the wisdom of the Almighty Raisin.
Super Mega Baseball
PS4, PS3 — Digital (Cross Buy)
Hammer Longballo and a friendly cast of semi-athletic baseball stars invite you out to the ballpark for a blazing fast, ultra-responsive game of hardball. Super Mega Baseball is easy to learn, but you’ll want to master jumping, diving, wall-catches, power swings/throws and cut-off plays to prevail in season mode.
Tetris Ultimate
PS4 — Digital
The world’s most-loved puzzle game arrives on PS4. With fun new features, and unique visuals, the evolution of this iconic game is the ultimate must-have. In this fast-paced game of skills, you can take on the puzzle game solo, team up, or battle friends.

  • Please bring us these ps1 classics:

    Vandal hearts 1 and 2
    Saga frontier
    Azure dreams
    Die hard trilogy
    Jade cocoon
    Megaman legends 1 and 2

  • @25, Resonance of Fate was put on PS3 PSN. Not on PSNOW to play on PS4 or Vita. Which it needs to be.

  • Super Mega Baseball has flown under the radar, all the way to release. Looks really solid!

  • If only the Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- Limited Edition wasn’t delayed….. Oh well. I can at least see the captures I’ve saved from the demo until then.

  • It’s cool that they’re bringing Much’s Oddysee to Vita. Good for those who missed out on Xbox. With that being said, I found the game to be, well… Odd :) Nevertheless the game has a cult following, so it’s worth a look.

  • I might get oddworld if it isn’t ridiculously overpriced and if it actually downloads after purchase. I’ve lost confidence in your downloads sony.

    I also would like to see Culdcept for ps2 makes it’s way to the ps2 classics section for ps3 although I doubt it ever will.

  • DANG! Good thing I put money on my PSN these deals look AMAZING!

  • Looks like I am getting Tetris Ultimate.

  • @24- If you really want to play Metal Gear Solid 4 and you own a PS4, it is available to rent through the Playstation Now service.

  • loadout looks interesting.

  • @24 with reference to comment #58- sorry, apparently MGS4 got taken off the PS Now service about 2 months ago. my bad.

  • This is a pretty good week.
    I’m mostly just excited about Guilty Gear Xrd, but the week overall is great.

  • just waiting on my GG LE.

  • If Tetris comes in at $9.99 or less, I’ll be purchasing it. If not, I’ll get it when it DOES hit that price next year.

    Nothing else this week… I have too much to play anyway. Bought Metro Redux this week, still into Dragon Age, and still loving Geometry Wars 3.


  • I’m goin for Metal gear sold (^_^)

  • Yay! Tetris Ultimate! Finally!

  • Please bring out these ps1 classics to the vita:

    Vandal hearts 1 and 2
    Saga frontier
    Die hard trilogy
    Megaman legends 1 and 2

  • Looks like nothing for me this week, and you know what? I’m super okay with that. There’ll probably be at least a couple of things on week 3 of the holiday sale that’ll catch my eye, and I’m way, way, waaaaaaaay behind anyway.

  • Is Guilty Gear cross buy/play?

  • yea im with the other guy.. why has vita not gotten tetris yet? i mean its not a game i would buy for a hefty pricetag of more than a few bucks, but there are some that would. Namely it would be interesting to see some features implemented that the vita has. I mean using ONLY the back touchpad to control the game would be very unique, maybe using voice commands only? (im surprised this has not happened on mobile yet), or how about using the camera and dropping in custom pics for back grounds to play on? i mean theres plenty of fresh ideas to add here

    also yet again… give us crash and spyro ps1 on vita already… better yet just implement ALL of ps1 classics from ps3/psp psn……. to the vita.. i dont get the segregation you RACISTS!!!!! lol

    lastly hows about figuring out if ps2 classics could be played remotely from ps3? this would be real neat i think if they are digital

  • #45 Wondering the same thing haha

  • So SO hyped for Guilty Gear Xrd! I’ve got the Limited Edition pre-ordered! Also, don’t forget everyone, there will be a free DLC character for the first week! :D

  • Man oh Man; it’s time to ROCK! I’ve got about 1000x enthusiasm and hype for Guilty Gear Xrd than SFV ever could have drummed up from it’s “Hey look it’s another version of Street Fighter IV… wait, they screwed up the logo”-reveal ;)

    Show ’em how it’s done, Arc Systems Works!

  • Will Guilty Gear be avaiable to pre-order???

  • No Cross Buy deal on Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD? C’mon Sony what I love about doing every version is buying in cross buy.

  • Hey +Ryan Cleements you forgot Plantetside 2 ; )

  • Tetris seems like a natural fit on the PS Vita. TEll me there are plans…

  • Nothing of interest for me this week. Hopefully week 3 of the holiday sale brings more success.

  • Definitely getting Guilty Gear,game impressed me I loved the demo,can’t believe I missed Guilty Gear on PS1 and PS2 I just can’t believe.
    Also a big wow!!…ha took long enough to MGS4 go digital damn,just saying though cuz thats a game to have in disc.

  • very pleased to get into loadout on the ps4 instead of steam. does this mean we are getting it before the marked jan1 release date?? cuz that’s badass!!

  • Can we please have tomorrow’s sale prices early? People were confused by it last week but I would really like to see the deals so I can plan what I want tomorrow. Thank you.

  • Is Loadout still free? That’s what was announced when they first said it was coming to PS4, just wanted to make sure that hasn’t been taken away from us like our Playstation Plus version of Driveclub

  • Tetris for Vita is more accurate than PS4 imo…

  • street date was broken last week. guilty gear is already being sold by retailers

  • i hope GG XRD is going be 50 on PSN or i’m going flip my lid on buying that zen pinball DLC.

  • Is Munch’s Oddysee HD crossbuy?

  • Will Tetris Ultimate have “endless” stage version, where you can keep playing as long as the blocks don’t hit the ceiling? I bought the PSN version of Tetris (published by EA), expecting to be able to play it like the original Tetris from Gameboy. Instead I found out that it was capped to 40 lines max regardless of difficulty level or stage.

  • Oh, forgot to mention this but apparently the Tetris (published by EA) is no longer available on PSN, or PS3. It doesn’t show up on Sony store anymore. I still have it in my purchase history, though.

    Please tell me there’s going to be PS3 version of Tetris Ultimate since I just realized that the version coming out tomorrow is PS4 only…

  • Is Loadout coming out this week for US?

  • Oddworld :Munch’s Oddysee HD on Vita….. ****ing FINALLY!!!!! GD it!!!!

  • any news about rogue galaxy coming to PS2 classics? would REALLY like to play that

  • When Is Dirge Of Cerberus Ff 7 going to come to PSN Store ?

  • Good selection but nothing for me really besides GG but I had my copy since last tuesday :P my gamestop was able to release it on the 9th.

  • Im curious when are we gonna start getting more new games instead of the Darn Rehashed Ultimate Editions Of Last gen Games.

  • Any chance of G-Police making it’s way to the US network? I know it’s available in Europe, why not here in the States? Also, Tekken 3 would be rad to have again.

  • Hi… can we now download the Loadout game? I checked the ps store still didnt have the download button yet… cant wait to play this game on my ps4..

  • Beyond! Really looking forward to trying Loadout on PS4, Played it a bit on PC and it is a tonne of fun.

  • Reminder: The PS Store updates every Tuesday at 2pm Pacific/5pm Eastern. It starts updating a few hours before that, so some things may show up early. But they aim to have it all done on time.

    This info is needlessly omitted from every last official PS Blog post, and would otherwise prevent the weekly confusion on the subject.

    It might also prevent unreasonably rude people from cursing NEWCOMERS WITH NO WAY TO KNOW HOW THIS ALL WORKS YET.

    I mean, it’s pretty obvious to see why *new* people expected content to show up at midnight once December 16th began. But that’s simply not the case.

  • it’s kinda sad that you mods only ever answer the first 3 or 4 posts on any given blog. after that, the number of replies to legitimate inquiries drops like a stone. sad drop.
