The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 3/17/2015
The Drop

The renowned first-person shooter series comes tearing back to PlayStation this week with Battlefield Hardline, which launches on PS4 and PS3.

Inspired by modern-day TV crime dramas, Hardline puts players in the role of Nick Mendoza, a Miami police detective that’s hell-bent on taking a former partner down. Hardline also features a robust multiplayer suite, with new competitive modes, giant interactive maps, 28 gadgets, 27 licensed vehicles, and more.

That’s just the start of this week’s lineup. Final Fantasy Type-0 HD launches this week on PS4, ushering in a dark, violent story of 14 characters pushing back against an invading empire. And of course let’s not forget our Spring Fever lineup continues this week; Jamestown+ is taking flight on PS4 with new characters, new maps, and that deliciously insane bullet hell flavor.

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

  • So I’m not the only one buying Type-0 to play FF XV right? lol

  • What time of the day will Type-0 launch? Midnight EST? I’m wondering if I should stay up and wait for it. :)

  • Why did Sony pass in porting Type-O to Vita. That’s a massive disappointment

  • Any word on Journey for Ps4?

  • @CENTURY21AZ – You can play with Remote Play, which I’ve heard is quite smooth these days. Honestly, new games for PSV are increasingly infrequent..

  • Count down to Battlefield Hardline 00:29:34 Oh Goodie Goodie :-)

  • can’t wait for Type-0 :)

  • So Its the 17th and still no Type-0 on the NA store….

  • Fuzzy: It won’t be on the store until about 5pm eastern

  • any word on the Arkham Knight preorder?

  • Really want to try the FF XV demo, but can’t afford Type-O at the moment. I fear the “limited time” will end before I have the money. Seems a cheap move to make it exclusive to early copies of the game. I mean, I’m interested in Type-O anyway, but still…

  • I agreed. I have been waiting since 3:00 am to buy it. I wanted to have both downloaded before I got home. Sony doesn’t seem to be putting the resource in keeping their own store up today. I sure some employee on the west coast has to list the item for sale. I wonder if it will be listed in a couple hours once they get to the office.

  • How do I find the Toukiden Demo on PSN?

  • Are you guys new? The store is never updated this early. Check back at 2pm PST.

  • Welp, it looks like I bought into the hype and managed to get Type-0. I’m still a little salty that it’s not on the Vita, but I needed a good Jrpg. I hope it’s worth it.

  • cant they just make the store update at midnight…

  • I need ff type 0

  • Did you buy it from the PlayStation Store?

    Nope not new just hoping they released the game on time.

  • so disappointed with Sony and square . while all my friends are playing type 0 i’m waiting here like a retard for the ps store to update store to update and then i still have to download for days before ill even be able to play the game. very disappointing service.

    whats the point in punting a digital store if you cant even release games on time ?

  • What time is the drop supposed to occur?

  • FF Type 0 Has been posted with the Demo as promised. I have it downloading now, but it is downloading slow. :(

  • @119 – It DOES update on time. That time is 2pm PST.

    @121 – If you’re referring to the store update: 2pm PST.

  • If it’s such a GREAT game, then WHY isnt there a *DEMO* available for *BATTLEFIELD HARDLINE*??

    Personally,
    I think that there should be a DOWNLOADABLE DEMO
    for each & every NEW game,
    available the day after launch date!

    So that the consumer can try the $60 game out
    &
    KNOW whether he likes it enough to blow $60 on it,
    BEFORE he actually BUYS it.

  • Hi there, was just wondering how long the Day One Edition of Type Zero will be around for to get the FFXV demo( won’t be able to get the game till next Thrusday)

  • Can you tell us how long the limited time for FFXV’s demo is? I’m getting Type-0 today, so I don’t wanna miss out on it.

  • Can’t even find the digital download for Final Fantasy Type O, nowhere.

  • if i bought battlefield hardline from psn , and want a refund …. what can i do ?
    the language is foul ,the game is freezing or not loading….. customer service never got back to me. e.g. e-mail that they said they would send….
    Is it really worth losing a 15 year customer.and another thousand dollars all over a $60 psn credit ?
