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.

  • @KazeEternal: What you said doesn’t make sense because Sony doesn’t have to pay for anything in order to get this done. Suikoden II is PSP-compatible and it’s already in the PS store. It’s just a matter of an artificial blockade in the PS store. If somebody wants to play on a PSP, then let them copy it to a PSP. It’s the customer’s decision. Sony is just there to provide the file. Also, PSP games are still great and many people want to buy them so the whole “PSP is dead” attitude is lame. There is a thing called legacy support.

  • What about a PSP games sale?

  • @42

    Because you couldn’t be bothered to read the announcement which said that the 10% discount was coming later this month, and then peruse the remaining PS Blog posts to see that no announcement had yet been made?

    Your fault for calling for a silly reason.

  • I should say, no further announcement.

  • What will be the price of Grim Fandango?

  • Sooooooo, wheres Atelier Ayesha? Koei themselves have confirmed its coming out on the 13th.

  • @Ryan Clements, this is actually the official announcement on their website: http://www.koeitecmoamerica.com/news/76824/KOEI-TECMO-AMERICA-DETAILS-EXCLUSIVE-CONTENT-FOR-ATELIER-AYESHA-PLUS:-THE-ALCHEMIST-OF-DUSK/

    Their EU Twitter actually posted that the game will come out on EU on Jan 14, which usually means game will be on US on Jan 13. https://twitter.com/koeitecmoeurope/status/553132961525403648

    Can you please check and update the post for us on what’s going on?

  • Hello! I was wondering why I can’t find Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on the PSN store for PS3? I went and searched it on the Internet PSN Store, and I can’t find it on there either. If someone could bring to light the current situation on the game, like say, it’s been taken down for some specific reason, that would be great, because I’m interested in purchasing it along with Vice City sometime in the future. Something I also noted while looking for it, I noticed that no one else has had this problem, so maybe it’s just me? All the others are available, so please get back to me ASAP. Thanks.

  • Is Joe Danger 2 going to be Playstation TV compatible?

  • @52 GAMER6X. Wow, you’re right, I couldn’t find GTA San Andreas either. Hopefully this means they are going to announce the hd remaster for ps3 or even better, vita soon.

  • Omg I Cannot Wait!!! :D

  • I never ask for anything but if some way u guys could bring nightmare creatures 2 to the classics it would be awesome please T_T

  • When will there be more PSOne Classics? Japan has Crash Bash, Ape Escape, Poy Poy, Chocobo Racing, LSD: Dream Emulator, Ms. Pac-Man Maze Madness, Grand Theft Auto, Mega Man Legends+ Tron Bonne, Rockman Battle and Chase, Brave Fencer Musashi and other great PSOne Classics we don’t have. I know the process is a long drawn out one but I’d buy these games in a heart beat when they are released stateside.

    Also, will Parappa the Rapper 1 and 2 be released on the Playstation Store? I know PtR was released on the PSP, but I don’t have a PSP and I can’t find PtR. Same thing with PtR2 (I own a PS2, but I can’t find a copy anywhere).

  • Sooo, any news why Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk is not there?
    It’s the only game I want this month.

  • Any chance to see Dark Souls on the PSN? :(

  • koeitecmoamerica. com/ayeshaplus/
    Says the release date is this tuesday

  • I would love to see Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core on the Vita. I never got to play it.

  • Still waiting to hear about what you guys will be doing about the network being down when a lot of us Little Big Planet fans were trying to get the Rare Launch Week 1 T-shirts. Network had been down from November till December for me, and so I couldn’t get some of the items. Awaiting an answer or a voucher code.

  • When is Metal Slug 3 coming for the Vita/PS3/PS4?

    It’s my all-time favorite arcade game, and I’m going to miss it when I head back to college next week– I play it on my MAME at home.

  • Need more ps2 classics as well! So many great games that nobody even mentioned yet. And you know we all love them. :)

  • @48/49

    I was merely being facetious. I’m well aware that Sony has not yet announced their 10% date. I was simply pointing out that they still haven’t announced their discount date, and that they continue to outsource jobs. I look forward to purchasing several titles at once, when the date arrives.

  • @v

    And here I thought the point was that you were complaining about living in New Jersey.

    They will announce it when they can. I suspect right after you give up and make that big purchase. (or I do).

  • Wow, so much trolling in this blog. Sony has no control over what is released each week and “The Drop” can be unreliable. They miss a game doesn’t mean it won’t be on the weekly PSN update. Ryan did the same with Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate before, so it’s not a surprise they forget a game or two.

    Also, what’s the difference between Monopoly Deal and Monopoly Plus? To me, they look the same.

  • A pretty bland week.

    It is January after all.
    I don’t even think any good movies are coming out this month.

  • @67

    I think its a bad sign when a Sony Public Relations person doesn’t even know what games are coming out for Vita, though. Atelier Ayesha is good release for the Vita, being a remake from a well respected series, yet he doesn’t even know its supposed to come out. That says how little Sonys PR people care about the Vita these days.

  • Gamerzlimited: deal is a card game version and plus is more like the classic game

  • What do you guys have against rpg’s? I hardly ever see any new ones on the store anymore and when they do have them it’s some stupid loli fanservice game. Even Suikoden 2 took months of whining before you finally caved. It would be nice to see something besides Persona and Final Fantasy for a change.

  • Need more PS4 games… Not much of a next gen console if there are no games!

    WTF ever happened to PS+ DriveClub???

  • At 66- i laughed out loud at that one. New Jersey is the swamp.

    At 67- I don’t know if you were speaking about me, but I’ve never been accused of trolling a forum.
    As for video game purchases, they date back to 1981. When I’m not working I love gaming as one of of several hobbies.

  • Just had my Vita and memory cards/case/physical games lifted out of my vehicle while picking up my kids from school.
    Got to love people these days, and electronic locks I don’t have.

    Brighter side is most of my games are digital.

    Definitely not looking forward to trying to replace my memory though.

    Glad to see a PSP game making the list, though would have been nice years ago, and would like a AAA title better.

    Hope some Vita sales on games that haven’t been yet, or lower the than before.

    Many thanks to EA and Ubisoft for BF 4 and AC4.
    Made my Christmas.

    Too bad Sony Customer service wouldn’t let me exchange CoD for Destiny though, since the sale happened one night whole day later.

    Gamefly was great, but two weeks for a title, when others had no problem in shipping is not worthwhile.
    Oh well, Redbox still hasn’t disappointed yet.

  • For me 5 day plus extension has been applied about two days ago. I knew when I saw my download list. Older IGC games were all bumped up. (It was a terror)

  • Since there’s too many people for me to comment to, I’ll reply though numbers to prevent this comment from being blocked. PS Blog doesn’t like reply comments that have too many usernames.

    @69 Yeah, I can see what you mean. Not just Vita, but I heard they never mentioned Koei titles. It also shows how little Sonys PR people cares about niche games that nobody pays attention to.

    @70 Thanks, that’s all I need to know. Couldn’t tell though the small screenshots, so it’s nice to hear some confirmation in case I don’t buy the wrong version.

    @73 No, not exactly. I mean those who rated this blog post low and left without leaving a single comment. That doesn’t mean you.

  • Is Shake Spears still a pay to win/free to play game?

  • hi ryan. where can i complain about the major lack of phisical games on stores for vita? I was crazy to buy Sword art online and soul sacrifice delta but as digital only titles i WONT buy them. im tired of that trend. memory cards fill up way too much and it was bad enough with all the ps plus games… Sony needs to do something about this….

  • @donnydj76,

    I spent two years at Princeton, so I can relate to the NJ thing.

  • Still waiting for GRIM FANDANGO REMASTERED, im wondering about the price and Cross-buy availability >.<

  • When will there be a tennis game for the ps4?

  • When will there be some new games for pre-order on the PS4? Like Batman: Arkham Knight, or Final Fantasy Type-0.

  • I have the actual physical version of Monopoly Deal, and it is pretty fun. But the PS3 version is REALLY in need of an AI opponent. There just are not that many people interested in the game to keep it going with online only play.

  • @86

    Too bad I can’t play it because I have a PS3.

  • 20 bucks for that old psp game? And this is another example of why the digital psp pricing structure is extremely flawed. There’s lots of titles that are ok and the id love to play, but not for 20 bucks!!! And then on the other hand you have some great psp games for 9.99. Makes no sense. I don’t understand why ps1 classics is pretty straightforward with pricing being mostly 5.99, with a few for 9.99. And then you have the psp with anything new released on there going for 20 bucks and it’s clearly not worth it. I’d pay that much for crisis core, and that’s about it as far as psp goes.

    Seriously, the pricing structure needs to be redone for psp titles. Geez even ps2 classics are going for 10 bucks, so how does 20 bucks make sense?

  • @91

    It makes sense because they are counting them as Vita games as well. That’s my guess, anyway.

  • @91 Brandish counts like a new game since it never came out in the states and $20(if that’s even the correct price) is actually really reasonable imo, if you think it’s too much I guess you can always wait for a sale.

  • Wtf is this bs. Three full weeks and nothing for ps4. Lame AF.

  • Damn, I thought this week would be the week MGS V: The Phantom Pain comes out. :P

  • @94, lol, it’s january dude… welcome to marketing / business 101……………

  • @ArchAngelReaper

    New to gaming?

    It’s always like this in January. Just over the last 10 years have companies bothered to notice that there is a calendar that inlcudes months besides OCtober, November, and December.

    February and March should contain releases.If not just wait longer.

  • PSP games? :O

  • SONY how about making Mortal Kombat Unchained on (PSP) work on PLAYSTATION TV? U can do it! It’s a (PSP) game theres no Reason why this isn’t on PlayStation TV to begin with…. So get this game on PlayStation TV STAT!

  • I’ve already bought a bunch of ps one classics and psn games on ps3, can you guys make them available for download?
