  • Great layout and the pictures! I preordered Dungeon travelers 2 on a whim, played the demo a bit. Never really played a dungeon crawler so I’m trying to force myself into it. I enjoyed the characters in the demo. Hopefully it’s worth it.

  • Wow… an update for Helldivers is bigger than Resident Evil Revelations 2 coming to Vita? Really Sony? I loved Helldivers as much as the next guy, but seriously?

    An awesome week of games all the same. Hopefully Rev2 is actually good on Vita, there’s been NOTHING about the game and now it’s out in a couple of days. That’s very concerning.

    I’m not sure I really believe Gio when he says Vita is his favourite platform. Most of the #buildingthelist games are PS4 titles and there’s barely anything 3PP are doing specifically for Vita. Hopefully PSX Changes this, but it’s been pretty disappointing honestly.

  • That’s funny! I have The Bridge on Steam (quite enjoyable) and always imagined it on PS (especially Vita) but never saw a release announcement. Cool that it’s coming out!

  • The big one for me this week is Resident Evil Revelations 2. I just have to delete stuff from my Vita’s 64gb card to make room for the game. I agree that a physical cartridge would have been awesome but seeing as this is the first major game in ages to come out on the Vita I will buy it immediately to show support and hope at the least RE4 and RE Revelations 1 might be brought over. C’mon Sony and Capcom I’m not a horror fan but if you make it on the Vita we will buy just to have another game. I’m buying Lego superhero games just to have something to play. I re buy Telltale games for something to play. This year my game buying is down since I have not jumped to a pS4 yet but on the Vita I keep buying. And I know I’m not alone.

  • Does anybody have any clue what’s the price tag is going to be for zombie? Because I’m definitely not spending 40 or $30 for a five-year-old game

  • Any Import games coming up? Also, I’m wondering if you guys could start listing demos again.

  • Resident Evil: Revelations 2 for me. Other than that there are some great looking indies out this week.

  • Thanks for the new look, its way easier to match the game title, pic and details for each, by far a better format……. Great job guys, keep up the good work!!!

  • Just Helldivers Retail copy for me next week. Then Dishonored, Until Dawn, MGS 5, Mad Max and Tearaway all retail in the next few weeks.

    Will ignore Zombi. Got it on the wiiu. The omission of the second screen makes it an unacceptable no effort, quick cash in, lazy port. Not even an App or vita support for a second screen was even attempted so i’ll dismiss it as the lazy port that it is.

    My .02

  • so thats it huh? nobody questions why spacehulk was promised last tuesday and just vanishes. okay i see. no one gives a F!@#.

  • Really excited for Pure Hold’em. Have been looking forward to playing next-gen poker since they revealed it this spring–the release came out of nowhere!

  • how much for Pure Hold ‘Em? will be nice having a poker game… will wait for a price drop on helldivers

  • @62

    I saw on anther site Pure Hold’em was $19.99 for the XBO. I’m assuming it will be the same price for us. Little more than I was expecting but if it plays well it will definitely be worth it. Maybe we will get a PS plus discount with it if lucky.

  • Can we get more demos for the PS3? I would really like to see some more 99 cent flash sales too. Journey? Flower? Resident Evil HD? Cubixx HD?

  • Great Work with the new design.


  • Nothing of interest except for Zombi. I thought that looked interesting on the Wii-U. Enough with the 8-bit games already and lower the price of the arcade classics. MAME is FREE… just saying.

  • Adventures of Pip looks really cool :D! Excellent Drop!

  • FINALLY a Good Week for the BEST Mobile device out there aka PS VITA !
    Resident evil 2, Helldivers and Volume!!! Hands down the best week for the vita this year, but still hope to see more support From Sony in the upcoming weeks.. Anyway thanks to the devs for the ps vita support!!!

  • Is that Zombi supposed to be that joke of a game zombi u?…I’ve read somewhere that it was going multiplat…LMAO.

    BTW good job with the new format…still think the old one was better but whatever this one looks good too.

  • Are you still avioding the question about a pricetag on Zombi?
    It’s not like you guys don’t know it….. Why the cover up?

    Price on Zombi?

  • Where is Axiom Verge and Pier Solar for the Vita?

    • Man that is a million dollar question… However this “blog” is not a Good place to ask questions about ps vita, if you need info about upcomming games go to ThevitaLounge, those guys really love the ps vita so check it!
      Also about Axion Verge i thing is “on ice” like the ps vita version of Galak z

  • Any details on the prices of Pure Hold ‘Em and Zombi?

  • For those asking about the price of Zombi releasing on PSN tomorrow. The guy in this video posted today from Ubisoft Australia says it’s about $29.95 AUD which equals about $22 USD so my guess would be it will cost $20.

  • I’ll agree your format is an improvement, however it looks like another weak update imo
    I mean really over the past few months what has there really been aside from remasters, ports and low budget Indies?
    It’s a sad day when all i really anticipate is a $20 game (Yu-gi-oh)
    Sure Prototype 1&2 a few weeks ago on PS4 as a bundle, last week as 2 stand alone titles for some odd reason.
    I’d like to see more RPG’s even if they are remasters, ports or low budget Indies.

  • Don’t change this format!! This is PERFECTION!!

  • Zombi looks to be $19.99 or less.

  • Really on fence about buying RE Revelations 2 digital since i’d really like a physical copy and im kinda low on room and Play Asia has it for 32.99 and is also Multi-Language

  • hi! question: the resident evil revelations for ps vita is Multi-Language? i cant wait for buy but im latino……

  • Why isn’t Zombi in the store yet? Xbox had it at10 pm last night.

    • i ask the same question this game looks great for me and i want to play it but it´s not in the store yet what the heck is going on? we would like a quick answer

    • the game is in the store now man let’s download it right away

  • Love this look for the drop

  • You guys should be ashamed of that resident evil port…I mean congrats on getting it on there, bare minimum and all, but good lord…you could have at least made it cross buy so I didn’t feel like you were robbing me. I got RE4 on iOS for 99¢ and it looks and plays better. Just pitiful…
