The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 3/10/2015
The Drop

Demonic influence creeps beneath a thin veil of corporate greed, advertising, and poisonous soft drinks. With ancient powers warring behind the scenes, one man of both demonic and angelic ancestry challenges the hellish underbelly of his city. DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition is coming to PS4 this week, and Dante looks better than ever.

Refined from the 2013 original, DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition delivers 1080p visuals at a searing hot 60 frames per second. The development team has combed through the original to polish and adjust Dante’s weapons, enemy balance, and nearly every facet of the game’s razor-sharp combat system. With new features, all the DLC included, and an entire Bloody Palace for Vergil, the Definitive Edition is the best way to play DmC.

Also coming to PlayStation this week: Hotline Miami 2. The now iconic top-down action game pounds back with all the over-the-top violence and challenge that gamers found in the original. Here’s a bonus: it’s part of our Spring Fever lineup, with a discount for PS Plus members!

For a full list of games launching this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

  • Vinyl Boxset is soo good. Thx Devolver Digital :) Cant wait for HM 2!

  • Atelier on ps4 pls?

  • Hotline Miami 2 is gonna rock!

  • Yay Hotline Miami 2! But what is with the PSOne and PS2 Classic lineup this week?

  • Hey guys, I posted this information on my blog. I cited Playstation Blog a couple of times as a source.

  • When are we getting Episode 2 of Tales from the Borderlands? The first episode came out months ago.

  • I’m being hopeful and looking way forward into things after looking at a very awesome past.
    I recently found my Legacy Of Kain games and remember them as one of the best plots in videogame history.
    Steam has all, but the first game available and PSN lacks the last 3 as they were on Playstation 2.
    I wish that one day SCEA will get the license to release Soul Reaver 2, Blood Omen 2 and Defiance as PS2 Classics.
    Instant rebuy to support this awesome IP.

  • DMC was a great game, played through and beat it the day it was released. Depending on the price, (which I too agree, it should be listed here) I may pick up this edition of it. If it’s more than $50 though I’ll just wait it out and grab it in the summer for $20ish.

  • Finally! Flame Over is coming out. Been waiting for this one.

  • Thanks for the info. So there wont be digital preorder for FF Type-0 HD on PS4 i guess. Will we be able to play the FFXV demo if we buy Type-0 on day one March 17?

  • Atelier Shallie looks to be just as good as Escha & Logy – So psyched! :D

  • Crossing fingers for a chance on a DmC sequel! I’m an old Devil May Cry player since the first one.
    This game is an awesome work on every aspect and I will never understand how some people can say stupid things about it without even finish it. I will defend the new DmC until the end! =D

  • As a designer, it’s clear that someone spent some time making that “The Drop” logo – but it’s a damn shame it’s a white background .jpg – instead of a .png 128bit transparent. A. It’s a smaller size B. That white background isn’t even the same white C. jpgs just kill the color of what that’s probably supposed to be like.

    Anyways, cool logo – shame it’s not implemented correctly.

  • Also, really quick so I don’t sound like a pompous graphic design ass – I love the podcast. Huge fan and listen to it all the time. You guys are great, even when you go on tangents. I love it all. Just when I see that all the avatars on here done right with .pngs – I get a little touchy about some other graphical choices. Sorry if I came off that way. =)

  • Can you pre-order DMC on PSN?

  • Subsided_Assasin

    I’m very depressed about how mall the amount of PS2 classics is on the PS3 considering this is the end of its lifecycle. You guys need to make a subscription service to stream umlimited PS2 games, I’d gladly pay for that, so many great games to revisit from the ps2 era

  • think imma wait on Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters. I dont know if ill dig it or not so maybe a cheaper price tag will make me take the dive.

  • So you haven’t heard anything definitive about Type-0 pre-order or you have heard that Type-0 will definitely not be available for pre-order?

  • I know Type-0 will be on PSN eventually since all PS4 games HAVE to be available in digital form, but I really hope it’s up for pre-order on Tuesday.

  • I Am Glad About This, Arigatou For The Weekly Store Blog Updates. C:

  • Hi Ryan, is there any chance for the psOne and PS2 classics coming to ps4 As downloadable games?
    Not via PS now/rent
    But for purchase.Like on the ps3
    Please do reply.

  • im happy and to play a game

  • wow I remember alter echo

  • Happy JRPG Month everyone! Can’t wait to stream Atelier Shallie tomorrow evening!

  • It looks like DMC is all i’m getting this week! next week FF:Type 0 which i can’t wait for.

  • Resident Evil: Revelations 2, Episode 3?

  • Do you have to have Playstation Plus to be able to play FF Type-O HD?

  • @mharrod Final Fantasy Type-0 is almost entirely offline, so no Plus would not be needed and Plus is not needed for Final Fantasy XIV which is a MMORPG.

    Powers also premiers tomorrow which has me more excited than the games this week.

  • why is diablo ros multiplayer not working I get error cannot connect

  • Welcome to the era of “Hey, that game you bought on the PS3, go ahead and buy it on the PS4 too”. THE EXACT OPPOSITE ATTITUDE of when we wanted PS2 remakes on the PS3 and they asked why.

    Gee, lets see. PS2 games in HD at full graphical capability. PS2 iconic classics like Dragon Quest VIII, Rogue Galaxy, Max Payne, GTA San Andreas, Vice City, Xenogears VERSUS Not so iconic games we just played recently.

  • So, what happend to Krinkle Krusher game?
    Game was announced for february and its mid march already and game is not out yet.

    Same thing with Oddworld New n Tasty for ps3, only much worse.
    Developer said coming in “early march”, so, that time window is also gone. Another false announcement.
    We wait for this game almost a year after initial ps4 game release as crossbuy, still saying in game info “coming right after for ps3/vita”.

    We cannot relie on Sony and developers anymore. Most games are not released on time.


  • I’m leaning towards the “there is no definitive information on Type-0 digital release” from the lack of comments…

  • Beyond! Wait doesn’t Powers start tomorrow also? or am I completely lost on this? or was it just not listed here? seems like its not really being advertised =(

  • Battle Hunter is my favorite PS1 game of all time. I still play it to this day. And now that I can take it on the go, i’m even happier. It’s a really fun board game style RPG with a fun “race to the finish” style multiplayer. I can’t thank ya’ll enough for bringing this to PSN.

  • Hey Ryan, will final fantasy type-0 hd digitiL download come with ff 15 demo?

  • @85
    That’s the million dollar question.

  • Hey Ryan, any idea if Dark Souls 2 Scholar of the First Sin is going to be up for pre-order on PS4?

  • CavScout_19delta

    How long is the Helldivers discount for?

  • Very weird choice to list one of the benefits to buying the Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition is free updates to the main game.

    Patches are a selling perk?

  • waiting waiting waiting…. tempted to buy a game but waiting for type 0………nottttt sure to spend money on other game or wait around…. getting paid next weeeeek……the struggle is somewhat real.

  • Maybe I’ve overlooked it, but I’m wondering why this list does not contain DLC. There’s a few this week such as Resident a Evil Revelations 2, WWE 2K15 and Far Cry 4 to name a few. I would really appreciate a full list.

  • Where the heck is The Talos Principle? does anybody know when it’s coming out?

  • Aww man if only Skyrim could be remastered for PS4 instead of ESO…so many bugs in the PS3 version :P Can’t wait till next week though! Assassins Creed Rouge!! :D


    Steam just released it at 11am this morning…wtf PSN?

  • Please get the PS Store updated soon… please? I want to stream Atelier tonight, and I’m counting on you guys!

  • Dmc for ps4 nowhere to be found on the store! Please help

  • Does anyone know about the status of Spotify on PS4? Heard it was coming this month, then nothing.


    SOMEBODY has some news on Type-0’s digital release… unfortunately it’s the EU PSN Store but… it’s something (and it basically confirms that the digital version will come with the FFXV demo).

    And now we play the waiting game.
