The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 9/8/2015
The Drop

A world of brilliant colors, shapes, and an abundance of paper opens up once again. Tearaway Unfolded brings its unique charms to PS4 this week, enveloping players with crisp visuals and brand new controls.

Tearaway Unfolded is set in a world of paper. Everything, from puddles of water to radiant flowers, is exquisitely crafted in digital paper. Like its predecessor, Unfolded places players in control of an adorable papery messenger that travels over land and sea to deliver an important parcel to… the player. Yes, you, the player. What adventures await our loyal messenger and what’s hidden inside the letter? You’ll have to play to find out…

There’s lots more coming to the world of PlayStation this week, so read on — and enjoy the Drop!

  • Enjoy the drop!

    • Put the prices!

    • If Ryan doesn’t post prices, there is likely a good reason for that. I don’t think he has the green light and simply chooses not to.

      Now, stop spamming.

    • Prices?

      PanTheMan16, go to sleep now.

    • still loving the layout thanks for the info

    • Yowza never has good things to say. Some people would think that by now he just wouldn’t say anything at all.

      The Drop isn’t the post for pricing. That’s the PS Store update. You never know when they’re going to have a PS Plus discount, and they might not have negotiated all the prices/sales/promos, and it’s not a good idea to really plan your purchases for the week until friday because you’ll never know what is going on flash sale, or if there will be a flash sale.

      But… people are impatient. Which is why broken games are getting released that require heavy patching… People just need to learn to take a deep breathe, and realize it’ll be ok.

    • to pantheman are you a child , how is asking a ? like for the prices spamming its you that is spamming responding just to be rude like your a little child bruting. try figuring what forums are there made for people to ask ? and thats what he did so stop trying to be a know it all when it shows you dont have a clue why. please stop flooding this forum unless you have a question or comment that uses some brain power

    • might not be the place to ask, but i purchased axiom verge for the vita and can not get a reply from tom happ as to when it will be released.

    • Prices should definitely be posted, most of these game designers are moonlighting as rip-off artists. Also, I see Ryan Clements doesn’t have the PS Plus logo by his avatar – smart move, definitely a waste of money.

  • Still no word on Magic Duels: Origins? This was first promised by the end of July, then the End of August…whats going on?

  • What is (+ Trial) for Tearaway? Is the full game being released or just a demo?

    • The full game is coming out on Tuesday. However, if you want to try the game before you buy, you can just play the trial version. In other words both a demo and the full game will come out for Tearaway Unfolded.

    • Oh thank you, I’m pretty excited for it. The vita Tearaway was fun. Hope this is as fun without the actual screen to touch.

    • Yes, G-Force has you covered!

  • Getting Tearaway Unfolded for sure. Loved the Vita version – supported it day one. I’ll do the same for Unfolded. Such a great game that unfortunately had poor sales. I hope the PS4 version does better sales-wise.


  • One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 was already released for Vita on August 25th…?

    Also, isn’t Poncho coming out for PS4 & Vita this week?

    • OP:PW3 that was previously released was the “Limited Edition” one with free DLC. This one is just the game itself.
      This happens frequently. Sometimes the included DLC is never released separately from the LE bundle.

      Don’t know ’bout Poncho, sorry. Many titles (even some big ones or ones released on a different system) don’t get a mention. Could be the list received by the editor dropped it, or the date may still be in contention (i.e. hasn’t been given the Sony qualifying seal.

  • PS2 Classics Wish List:
    – Silent Hill 2/3/The Room/Origins (i don’t like HD remasters)
    – Vlakyrie Profile 2 Silmeria
    – Xenosaga 1/2/3

  • More PS1 and PS2 Classics, please! Outside of Yakuza 5, they’re the only games I feel like buying from PSN in this day and age.

  • I would so buy Age of Ultron if 3d, hd & sd were bundled together, I want to stop buying blu rays.
    Where are the psone & ps2 classics?

  • Leo’s Fortune here!

  • Loved Tearaway on Vita :D Can’t wait for PS4 version :D

  • Out of curiosity, why did you guys stop giving us a heads up on PSN deals before they happen? I was a nice feature of the blog, and it helped me spend my money a little wiser. I hardly buy anything anymore because I don’t know what’s coming.

  • Where is Soma and divinity original sin enhanced edition on PSN??? It coming out soon but not on PSN???

  • Are you sure Broken Sword is cross buy? Because it’s not in the EU.

  • Hmph – no [edit] feature to correct my post.

    Getting: Knock Knock, Tearaway Unfolded (pre-ordered retail)
    Possibly getting: Hyper-Void, Leo’s Fortune, Broken Sword 5 (price-dependant as I believe it were released on Vita already, which I think I picked up)

    Doh… BS5 cross-buy, so I probably already own it.

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition – Trespasser is a big release as well, even though it’s DLC.

  • Once again no pictures/videos of actual gameplay. Why even bother putting all the work into making a game and then not inform people of what your game plays like? Nobody is going to buy games based on “box art” and one sentence of description. Most of these titles don’t’ even get reviewed on metacritic because they are promoted so poorly that most sites don’t want to bother wasting time reviewing a game that nobody even knows about. And when they’re charging $15 for a game nowdays… I just think the marketing behind some of these games is atrocious to be honest.

    • Well, some games do have a gameplay photo in this post. And what do you expect from one blog post to cover all of the new releases for the week? Don’t all of the games get their own dedicated blog post, as well? I think the marketing team rely on the magic of social media to promote these games. They have a plan for how they’re going to market all of their games, whether indie or AAA. If a game looks and sounds good to a player, and it piques their curiousity to learn more about it and google it, they may buy it and if it’s good they’ll recommend it to friends. Marketing duties are also shared with the devs/pubs. Forget marketing. If a game piques your interest, look for as much info on it as you can, then put down the money if you’ve got it. I’ve barely got any money to spend on games outside of first/third party titles I like so I think it’s good of people like you to want to know more about the wider selection of games available. I only wish I could be as open to new things. The blog team should probably link each game to its corresponding blog posts and the playstation store so we can find out more info this way.

  • Fat City sounds interesting. I would get Tearaway Unfolded, but asking for it for my birthday.

  • HI Ryan I know that in your podcast you say games our subject to change I was wondering if free fall snowball fight is still going to be out this week thanks

  • gonna try fifa but can’t wait for destiny ttk

  • @Ryan Clements

    Do you have any idea on when Magic Duels Origins will be out for PSN? Wizards and stainless haven’t commented on it since early July.

  • Please more PS classics : Nascar Rumble, Digimon Rumble Arena, Twisted Metal 4,

    P.S2 Classics : Dragon Ball Z Tenkaichi 3

  • I already pre-ordered Tearaway Unfolded, will be a joy to play again this beautiful and charming game again, now on the PS4.

  • Please make all of the PS1/PSP games compatible for Vita. It’s frustrating seeing so many classics requiring a PS3 to transfer or ones that just aren’t compatible at all (especially when they are in other regions). I don’t understand it.

  • Hyper Void, a Jeff Minter-esque insta-buy for the Vita. Looks great. And of course the FIFA demo.

  • I have an important question,

    If I only purchased episode 1 of Broken Sword 5 on vita, am I still eligible for cross buy with the full game on ps4?

    Take care, Ryan and have a good week.

    Happy early labor day to everyone at PlayStation.

  • Is there ever going to be a UFC Fight Pass App for Playstation? This is far passed being ridiculous. Seriously

  • One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 is already out on Vita.

  • Still nothing about the new Magic the Gathering game hitting PSN?

  • Is there any discount from the owners of tearaway in Vita?

  • Will there be any more PS1 classics soon?

  • It’s interesting to see three Demo/Trials coming this week. I hope more games do that, though I realize they may not always have the resources.. PS4 is starting to get so many games (especially smaller ones) that things like Day 1 discounts and demos probably make a big difference in having them stand out at launch.

  • I noticed Ryan was in the credits at the end of Until Dawn! Beyond!

  • whats this obsession with Fat City? it isnt even a good ios game.

  • pricing?

    Also, why are none of these “Fat City” people fat?

  • Ascendant looks pretty interesting, and Leo’s Fortune reminds me the kind of games I don’t use to call game, I name it “pieces of art”!… Unfortunately no Vita version for any of them. That makes me even more sad.

    Tearaway doesn’t have a Vita version too, what makes me think: If they do not support the “mother” platform of the title, why should I support the game at all? I LOVED Tearaway1… It’s a little bit short but is a master piece of art from video games in my opinion, do not launch a Vita version is the same to spit on the table you already eaten. I belive unfortunately Gravity Rush2 goes to same way…

    It would be nice to see classic games like Golden Axe or Road Rash in new versions, like they did with Double Dragon Neon or Castle of Ilusion! (please launch it for Vita)

    Just to remind, I’m still waiting to buy VOLUME on my Vita. Don’t make the same sony did with New’n Tasty, I’m still waiting it too…

    Thank you very mutch Clements, keep us informed dude… You’re doing great!

  • Is Age of Ultron already available? Someone told me they weren’t releasing it until tomorrow(thursday). Haven;t had the chance to get on and check yet.

  • Broken Sword is NOT cross-buy unfortunately.

  • Sorry, must have missed this post from ANYone at Sony:
    “Thanks Popbot for pointing out our mistake about Broken Sword. We chose to ignore it (as well as your @askplaystation tweets) though. Only when the publisher contacted us, after you took time out of your day to reach out to them and tell them about the disparity between what we were advertising on the blog and what we showed in our store, did we take action and update the page. Whoo boy good thing too because anyone who bought it thinking it was cross buy wouldn’t get their money back because that’s how we roll when we make a mistake on here. Anyway, bye!”
