  • Enjoy the Drop!

  • God of War 3 is the greatest game of all time!

  • I just need that release date for Yakuza 5. That’s all I need.

  • Pumped to play God of War 3 for the first time. Real solid week for PlayStation.

  • Deception IV Nightmare Princess… Everything else this week is an obstacle in the store for me this week.

    I’ll get to them in due time.

  • Garbage… Where’s Socom 2 Remake?

    • Serious! I think that’s the only game that had a petition to remake it and they still haven’t listened to the fans. I spent tons of hours playing socom 2. Just starting the game and hearing that intro theme got u amped up to play some desert glory or night stalker

    • @PrimalRage91 Agreed… NONE of these games will ever put up the sales or online player numbers that Socom 2 did.

    • Sorry Boy’s but Socom is dead. Not enough fan’s care to support Socom 4 so why support any other Socom game. Fan’s made it clear that the series is dead and it’s time to move on.

      You need to look forward to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege if you want to play a tactical shooter coming out October 13th 2015. Trust me it’s time to let that series go. It’s time we focus on the future of video game’s.

    • @ Skater_Ricky You have No clue what you’re talkin about, Socom 4 was a failure because it was made by a different developer

    • LOL at the guy who said “not enough fans to support Socom 4”. Why should they have? The only thing Socom about Socom 4 was the name on the box. It would make as much sense if you said “No one wants a God of War game cause no one bought Prince of Persia” lol. Plenty of Socom fans, the problem is there were incompetent decision makers for the Socom franchise who thought ignoring every single fan preference to cater to some “broader market” was the way to make money. Turns out it put them out of business instead.

    • @ TOMBSTONE4U well put…

    • The makers of Socom 2 are currently working on H-Hour: Worlds Elite which includes some old maps (Night stalker is one of them)

    • man i wud love a socom 2 remake still dont know why they killed that franchise…

    • @ bam37 lol…. thats just a wanna-be Socom, been there, tried that…. i’ll pass

    • Sorry, the last comment was directed for RhetoricalOne

  • That darn Ethan Carter… always vanishing. Hopefully I can get him to appear on my PS4.


  • ゴジラ!!!

  • Hi Ryan! How’s life treatin’ you?

    Can’t wait for Ethan Carter!! Heard great praise from one Mr. Marty Sliva and I’ve been waiting for the PS4 version to drop. (no pun intended)

    • Hello my friend! Yes, I’m excited for Ethan Carter, also. Any top pick from Marty is a top pick of mine…

  • Where is Yu-Gi-Oh Legacy Of The Duelist?

  • Ethan Carter, The Fall, GoW3 and Godzilla for me. Been looking forward to The Fall since that ps4 announcement! Heard great things about it and Ethan Carter. Big week!!!

  • *Best Drop ever!!!! Lovin’ it

  • The Fall and Ethan Carter really have me interested. Usually summer is a drought on games, but this year it’s been amazing!

    • Really glad to hear! I’m also looking forward to The Fall. Not the season. The game. But also the season.

  • Wasn’t God of War supposed to have a pre-load? On the PS Store (console) it says “pre-load supported.” But I haven’t seen or heard anything else. Can you clear this up for me please? I’d hate to have to wait until the morning to play it…

  • Are we going to be able to play God of War III Remastered at midnight/9pm pst?

  • Any idea how much Ethan Carter will be? I’m trying to figure out if I need more $$$ in my wallet.

  • Am I the only one that Preordered Godzilla? Lol

    • I did myself, and it’s a blasty blast. Really enjoy being able to stomp around as various forms of Godzilla. If you enjoy the concept of being a Kaiju moving throughout the urban landscape taking down all that is in your path. Well, this is definitely going to be one game on your radar for a while.

  • Solid week, finally Ethan Carter! I hope it’s a solid port job.

  • Good Morning Ryan,

    Any idea about Life is Strange Episode 4, last i heard it was supposed to be out this tuesday.

  • #WherearethenewPSoneclassics
















  • #Okami for Vita
    #Shadow of the Colossus for Vita
    #Ico for Vita
    #San Andreas for Vita

  • Curious to try out Godzilla, might wait for reviews first though don’t know if its worth full price.

    • Waiting for both reviews AND talk about local co-op. If it doesn’t have local co-op I probably won’t buy it. I haven’t heard it mentioned yet. Tbh I figured it was going to be a small little $20-$30 game. Never expected the $60 price tag. Especially since I last played Godzilla (Unleashed?) on a different console (2007 hint hint). Still have it, weird controls though.

  • #Fallout Shelter for Vita

  • I am interested in Godzilla, but I don’t think that the PS Blog had any features on it in the past. Is that a good or bad sign?

  • I absolutely love the fact that there are lots more arcade archives coming out, but $7.99 is way too much for these in my opinion. If they were $4.99 I’d own them all. If there was a season pack that included all of the releases for a year for $49.99 or $59.99 I would definitely do that as well. $7.99 for a single game is just too high.

  • Sony! May we please have a def jam fight for NY remaster please?!

  • Sweet, time to smash up Tokyo, then smash up some gods, then take a break from smashing to do some vanishing, then maybe set some traps, then….I dunno, a nap or something.

  • disgaea sale plz

  • I’m tore between getting God of War or God of Zilla?? Please help!

  • Deception is where I’m heading. Cannot wait to trap fools and laugh with maniacal glee. MWAhahahaha!

  • Where’s the Vita love?

  • SiCkY_HoLLoWFiED

    Can anyone tell me when NBA 2K16 will be up for digital press order?

    • NBA LIVE 16 is up for Preorder on PlayStation 4 but not NBA 2K16. Good luck getting a answer but I think this is up to the publisher to get this to Sony so PlayStation Store team can publish it to the PS Store. So talk with 2K and see what’s taking them so long.

  • Eh, nothing for me this week. I already have the entire God of War series on PS3 and a slightly new coat of paint isn’t enough to get me to double dip.

    • Put it on the Vita though and we’ll talk.

    • I own God of War III 2 time’s.

      1. God of War III Collector’s Edition on PS3.
      2. God of War Saga (All 5 God of War’s) on PS3.
      And I also own God of War Ascension on PS3.

      So if this doesn’t grant me a Free copy of God of War III Remastered digitally on PS4 I’m not buying it. Paid all of them at full price. I put in well over $100 in the God of War series I think I’m done at this point. What you think?

    • @Skater_Ricky I’m not expecting it for free, It’s just if they want me to buy it again, add some bonus content or make a Vita version so I can have it portable. A higher resolution and a few more FPS isn’t enough to sway me.

  • Funny enough I thought GOW3 was already out on PS4…considering I found it in the clearance bin at Walmart a few nights ago. Lazy employees obviously just threw it in there instead of checking the release dates.

    Anyway, I’ve searched the websites for all the major retailers in my area and no one is listing (including Gamestop) the PS3 version of Godzilla. Will this be digital only or is there a physical copy coming?

  • Got Rory McIlroy PGA Tour Preordered. Looking forward to downloading it soon.

  • any chance of changing the name from the drop to the dump,thats about all this has been for about 3 months in aint doing good sales no good games being released.

  • Were are good sales at all i see is over priced games on psn

  • wow great games this week the god of war 3 remastered and Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess but have a question Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess will be released in physical format on PS Vita?
    Thanks for your hard work in ps vita hopefully give us more support ps vita as AAA games do not want to second screen of my ps 4 of my other account please
    great great week thanks greetings work

  • Hey Ryan, doesn’t “Squares” come out on “PS Vita” on “07/12/2015”??

  • Bad news guys Satora Iwata has passed away. Its a sad day the gaming industry. May he R.I.P.

  • Godzilla and God of War here!

  • Please bring “Plants vs Zombies 2: Its About Time” to the PS3, PS4, and PS VITA.

  • Deception and vanishing!? Good week. Now I have to decided which I get first. As a g fan I want Godzilla but the Japanese reviews have been horrid. So… Probably later.

  • Does the GOW3 remastered version includes all the Kratos Skins OR will they later on become available as add-ons?

    • Pretty sure it includes all DLC that was released for PS3. If, however, they wanted to make extra DLC for it separate from what was availible on PS3, then they possibly could.

      Man I still remember that 7/11 promotion for the skins.

  • Missed GoW3 last gen so might just have to try that one out..

    And it would not be the PSblog without asking something that can’t be answered so…
    When we getting Dungeon defenders 2 on PS4?!?

  • Dear PlayStation, SCEA, Santa Monica Studios, etc…

    If you guys have any heart to us loyal fans, please please please… do a proper remaster release for the other God of War games for the PS4…and on disc and digital.

    God of War
    God of War II
    God of War Chains of Olympus
    God of War Ghost of Sparta
    God of War Ascensions

    If you want to be amazing, why not use the same/similar graphical engine you guys used with III and Ascension and remake 1, 2, CoO and GoS….

    We’ve supported you guys since the PS2, and then with the “HD” releases on the PS3… Come on. Do us hardcore fans a solid and do this for us!

    If anyone else here sees this comment and agrees, please copy and paste it. Maybe if we get like a bunch of people asking for this they will do it?

    I mean they’re already doing their other big franchise series but as a HD Trilogy collection (Uncharted 1 ~ 3)… Though speaking of that what happened to Golden Abyss??

  • Where is The Banner Saga?!?

  • They need to remake Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption.

  • I was going to get the God of War 3 remaster but I felt that the money was a bit too high for a game that already looked great on the PS3.

    I do feel that they should have included the first 3 games because they use this logic like it will give people a chance to play God of War for the first time but you don’t start on 3 and work backwards.

    Now NaughtyDog has it right with their remaster edition. They are including all 3 games for 60 bucks. This is what Sony Santa Monica should have done.

    • Except for the difference that all three Uncharted games actually launched on the PS3, whereas the first two God of War titles originally launched on the PS2. They can’t just keep remastering these old games. Eventually, it’s going to end up being almost as much work as making a new game. Especially CoO and GoS. Those were PSP games. Sony is smarter than S-E. They won’t remaster those for the PS4.

  • Cannot wait for God of War 3 Remastered!
