New PlayStation Games This Week

Atelier Ayesha Plus ~The Alchemist of Dusk~

Atelier Ayesha has been powered up and comes to the PlayStation Vita! Includes additional content from the PS3 version and many more new and exciting elements for all to enjoy. Unlike the previous titles in the Atelier series, the setting for Atelier Ayesha Plus — the Dusk World — is on the verge of ruin, the glory of their civilization based on alchemy all but lost.
Brandish: The Dark Revenant
PSP — Digital (Compatible with PS TV, Vita)
Vittoria: a medieval kingdom banished deep underground a thousand years ago. Lost and forgotten, a new kingdom was built upon the empty hills that mark its grave — but its ruins are still populated by the vengeful, twisted spirits of its once-proud people, and whosoever falls into these depths is most certainly doomed. Bounty hunter Ares, however, is not quite so willing to accept this fate.
Joe Danger 2: The Movie
PS Vita — Digital
Take Joe Danger on a death-defying thrill ride across the set of the greatest blockbuster movie ever made. Chase crooks on your police bike, destroy laser firing robots with a stolen jetpack, escape giant boulders in a minecart, time-travel to punch dinosaurs and divert the nuclear missiles on your unicycle! Featuring unique vehicles like snowmobiles, jetpacks, unicycles, skis and motorbikes!
Monopoly Deal

Everything great about MONOPOLY, now a fast paced, delightfully addictive card game! Compete online against your friends or the community in this frantic card-game: steal sets of cards, collect debts, and be the first to collect three complete property sets of different colors. Build your real estate empire in a new and faster way!

  • Have a great week!

  • where’s Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk, Ryan?
    No love for JRPG? XD

    • Hi! That wasn’t on my list, actually! Can you point me to where you got that info?

    • Hey SaberX85,

      I was able to confirm that Atelier Ayesha is, as you noted, coming tomorrow! Thanks for the early warning, I’ve added it into the post above.


  • Happy Sunday!

    The PSP game looks interesting.

  • get us more PSOne Classics, we love them

  • I’m with Saber, where’s Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk for PSVita?

  • @saberX85

    Interesting enough that did show as having a January 13th release date. I wonder if it changed or they failed to give him the information.

  • Oh, gee, i wonder how much these games cost? Better search all over the internet to find them! Why would an article advertising upcoming games have prices anyway? Thats just crazy!

  • Yep, missing atelier ayesha! :)

  • Hey Ryan, the main title says new games for Jan 13th 2014. It’s a new year buddy =p

  • Hey Ryan, check this out;

    Top left.

  • When is the DLC coming out for Lego The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies? No one seems to know.

  • Nice to see Vita support. PLEASE add more psONE classics. People are dying to play Crash Bandicoot on Vita (google it, theres major demand!)

  • Sackboy!

  • Yes… vita support!!! Please bring infected (psp) and crysis core: ff vii (psp) to vita =D

  • hey Ryan, what the hell ? no new games for ps4 games. this week might be second worst day in a row

  • Drop it like its Hot

  • From Gematsu:

    “Atelier Ayesha Plus, due out via download on January 13 in North America and January 14 in Europe for $39.99 / €39.99, brings new feature to the RPG, including new costumes, bosses, and dual audio.”

    This was back in November. Was it delayed without us knowing?

  • @Clements
    I know that. This is the only industry in the whole freakin world that thinks revealing the prices on the day they go on sale is a good idea. Eveything else in the whole world has a price attached well before release. It is infuriating. There is absolutely no reason why you dont post them ahead of time. Even two days early (today) would be fine, even though its still late.

  • Will Monopoly plus come to playstation vita?

  • Hey Powerhouse, any word on when we’ll be able to pre-order Grim Fandango and Life is Strange?


  • No PS4 love…

  • No ps4 games this week? Thats a first.

  • NM i thought we we’re looking at plus games. DUH!

  • Atelier Ayesha Plus, where?

  • @yowzagabowza

    You have a good point. I can open the Sunday Target advertisement and see many of the prices of the Tuesdays releases. I also don’t see why the secrecy. It’s not like there is competition for the MSRP that the games sell at. Do the publishers not give you the MSRP for the title when they give you the release date?

  • @ Ryan Clments

    “Atelier Ayesha Plus ~The Alchemist of Dusk~ for the PlayStation Vita will be available for digital download on 14 January 2015 across Europe (13 January 2015 for North America).”

  • Hey Ryan why when im on a party chat.. noice cancelling from my headset dont work? can you guys update it? when ever someone opens the door or say something from far away everyone in the chat can hear them.. can yall fix this?

  • @27

    I see the Facebook page also confirms Playstation TV support. I’m never sure which of those games will work because sometimes obvious ones like Neptunia Rebirth don’t, so always good to hear.

  • @prices discussion: I don’t care one way or another, mostly because I generally don’t buy anything immediately upon release.

    But for what it’s worth, they probably do withhold the info on purpose. Perhaps not all of it is known, but some of it surely is. For example, new retail games tend to be $60. Day 1 digital will be the same price, but not even those appear here.

    Since this whole website is essentially a big advertisement for the PSN digital storefront, they want you to impulse buy what they’re offering. Most people don’t even read this blog, and with no price info they’ll check the actual store. While there, they are just a few clicks away from buying something they may not have fired up the store to get if they had pricing info beforehand.

    People who do read this blog will come back and check the store update post because…well, they have no choice. The info isn’t here.

    Which brings me to my main point: IMHO they don’t have prices here because it’s just a “what’s new” post and most people don’t care. They can wait the 2 days.

  • #DonaldDuckGoinQuackersPS2onPSstore

  • Hello thanks for the wonderful drop would love to ask whatever happened to run sackboy run on ps vita been waiting from october ='[ would love to play that please. Thank you all for your hard work in playstation blog ^.^

  • howdy ryan,any word when are we going to get the promised 10 percent discount for the December outage?i could used that to buy brandish because i’m currently low on funds :3

  • Hope we see some Vita Games DROP in price this week. It’s been long time since this side of the Atlantic has seen some good Vita sales.

  • I might get those Monopoly games if the price is right.

    Go Broncos!

  • Ryan, for that game people are mentioning you’ll find a release date window on their actual website..

  • Where is the 10% discount code?
    Where are the 5 days extension for PS PLUS?
    Where is the PS Classic sale?
    Where is a sale in this page?


    And make a discount on the PS PLUS membership, my subscription runs out in 5 days.

  • Really, Sony? REALLY?! NO APOTHEON?!!!! REALLY?!!!!! Great, now if it does release the week after next, it’ll be the start of the new semester and have no time to play it, so thanks for that……

  • So in pictures I see advertising Playstation now I see the last of us. Does that mean will be getting that game and some others seen in the advertising for playstation now subscription?

  • Just make sure to have decent sales for this week………

  • MediEvil 2 as a PSOne Classic would be greatly appreciated. I loved playing the first after finding out about Dan via PlayStation All-Stars, and would love to show some more support for the franchise and play the sequel finally.

  • Any Idea when La-Mulana EX is dropping?

  • Hey Ryan, Please let the PlayStation Store team they need to work on better filtering in the PlayStation Store. Can’t always filter but Full game versus DLC or PSN’s not being apart of Full game’s because after all there no different then full game’s.

    Also to add please add more Preorder and upcoming game’s to the PlayStation Store. Especially for PlayStation 4. I want to Preorder Project Car’s digitally. I shouldn’t be treated any differently then disc buy’s going to a retail store preordering a game.

  • Where is the 10 percent discount? Why is it that I live in New Jersey but I am put on hold for 30 minutes to speak to someone in El Salvador to find out that there has been no official announcement on the date or the duration of the 10 percent discount?

  • Guys, bring back the PSP flag for Suikoden II. Personally, I don’t care for is as I play PS1 Classics on PS3 and PSV, but there’s a lot of people that want to play Suikoden II on PSP. It was available for PSP at first so we all know that somebody just blocked this via the PS store interface.

  • @43 MrPonuraski
    The PSP is a dead system and reached its end of life last year. They only dedicated 10 years to the device which is far more than their competitors gave the DS. In all honesty Vita’s are cheap enough now and have a strong selection of games, those PSP users who really like their PSP’s may want to think about carrying their existing libraries over to the Vita. They couldn’t go wrong, it has 7 years of support left on it and they would have a full control layout unlike the PSP.

    If you want to complain about the PSOne classics not being available on a system, I would point to the PS4 which has some how signaled square that it was ‘OK’ to port the PC version of FF7 and then charge 15+ for it. I’d love to abandon the PSP and PS3 echo system.

  • Plzzzz have a falsh sale this week.i really want to buy huhukom and murasaki baby witch are already on sale in the same for us plzzz.

Please enter your date of birth.
