  • Enjoy the Drop!

    • Seriously. Mega Man Legends?! Do you guys want me to cave and buy a Vita just so I can play those games? First it was MMX4&5, then Tron Bonne now MML. Soon it’ll be MML2. And after hearing that Star Ocean 2nd Evolution is being ported to PS4 and Vita with probably cross buy and save, I’m pretty much obliged to get one. Just kidding. I was already looking into getting one. Love the new format, love the drops every Sunday. And BEYOND!

    • You had me at Mega Man Legends

    • Oh, all of a sudden demos are mentioned on the Drop? So lame.
      And still no prices? Effing stupid.

    • A PS One classic! Holy Cow – it’s been so long I almost had a heart attack!

    • Please Mr. Clements but can we get a Daily motion app cuz it’s better than YouTube and a NJPW WORLD app for the PS4. Also, can I get the explicit version of Styles P ‘s second album on Spotify, TIME IS MONEY. I would be well appreciated.

  • Maybe I’m misunderstanding, but does the ps4 port of Journey’s section mention that there will be a Vita version soon? I hadn’t heard about that until now.

    • If there is still a Vita port, it’ll likely get cancelled soon. Sony has clearly shown a lack of willingness to support anything other than PS4. Its a shame. I love my Vita, but their responsibility with this product has kind of pulled the future of any playstation product including PlayStation VR into question as a good purchase.

    • Thanks for the comment, FlashDrivePrime! Apologies for any confusion the language may have caused, it has been updated.

      To confirm, Journey Collector’s Edition on PS4 will entitle you to the following:

      Journey (PS4, PS3)
      Flower (PS4, PS3, PS Vita)
      Flow (PS4, PS3, PS Vita)

      Thank you!

    • Ryan:

      You could have just said “No, there’s no Vita port”. BEYOND!

  • OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Just can’t wait for the uncharted collection, never actually finished 2 and 3, a good reason to put down my other controller and the witcher and fire up my PS4!!

  • Lame drop again, but looking forward to fallout…
    Remote play is by far the best way to enjoy your vita again, highly recommend!
    Also, tommygunn is as lame as this drop, just a heads up.

  • Ooh are we getting a vita version of journey? Instant buy if true!

  • OMG Onigiri!!! I’ve been playing it on my japanese account, had no idea it was coming so soon to the U.S.!!! Finally a full understanding of quests! THANK YOU!! Still free to play??

  • For this week… Digital
    Dynamite Fishing World Games for the PS4… I have the UK release and it is a fun little game.Simple and goofy. Should be cheap.. around the $3-5 price range.
    The Beta’s this week are a nice touch also..

    Retail Pick…
    Persona 4: Dancing All Night for the VIta… A must for rhythm fans and will tide you over until Xonic…

  • Please tell me there’s a PS1 Classics sale incoming. I can’t believe you didn’t have one for the 20th PS1 Anniversary in the US, especially that the damn EU store just had a wonderful sale for PS1 games.

  • Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection can’t wait!!!!
    Anyone that doesn’t have Journey yet or never played it, should pick up Journey Collector’s Edition. Not only will you get on of the best indies game ever made you will also get 2 other amazing game with it. Flow and Flower. And I’m not a big supporter for indies games.

  • Megaman Legends for me. Hopefully we’ll also get the second one soon.

  • Holy ****, megaman legends.I never thought i’d live to see the day that it was released on psn.

  • Mega Man Legends! Great game. Never played the 2nd.
    Stoked to see how the Uncharted Collection looks.

  • i won’t buy Uncharted Collection for ps4 on launch day because Uncharted 4 is too far from release date so i buy it in one week before Launch day of Uncharted 4 like March 11. NBA 2k16 is best hoop game ever i playing.. Great Job 2ksports

    • If you’re interested in playing the Uncharted 4 Beta in December I would buy the Collection before then. (That’s how you get access to the beta.)

  • M-E-G-A-M-A-N-L-E-G-E-N-D-S!!!!!!!!

  • Wait, It says Journey is coming to the Vita, is this true!?

  • I thought Overlord: Fellowship of Evil was supposed to hit PS4 this week as well… I haven’t seen any news of a delay. Huh, that was the only thing I was really looking forward to this week lol

  • Uncharted – The Nathan Drake Collection!!… oh demo

  • C’mon guys, did you actually think Journey was going to release on Vita? Vita was a legacy console to Sony weeks after launch.

    • A legacy console, for legacy games.
      Seems to me Journey is a legacy game, so yes.

      By your words, we might as well bury it, right?
      Well, it won’t be me just yet.

  • @Ryan, You forgot to mention two game’s.

    – Grand Ages: Medieval Coming to PS4 on September 29th

    – LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack comes out Today! (09/27/2015) on PS4 and PS3.

  • I love Mega Man Legends, it’s like an open world action RPG. Also the final boss is excruciatingly hard.

    • Might have been excited for this 4 years ago.
      Not so much now, but will be watching it for a sale, since I did buy the other 3 PSone Megaman’s to see them go on sale afterward.

      Glad to see they are adding them, but should have been done before the Vita was ever released.

  • WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO WAY I cant wait for mega man legends thank you so much :D

  • I loved the days when we also got a new portable sports game on release day. Madden, NCAA Football, NBA, Golf, and even NASCAR. You just put the UMD in the trusty ol’ PSP and it was game time. Yes Sir, no remote play needed.

  • ENOUGH WITH THE 8 BIT INDY GAMES. XBOX IS LOOKING BETTER AND BETTER EVERY WEEK. I’m finding myself losing my attachment with the PlayStation brand. Sony is not for the players anymore. They are all about more money. Wake up sony because if you don’t you’ll go by the wayside like Nintendo has. Your slogan is greatness awaits… Well, the gamers are still waiting. Why is that? Even the hard line PlayStation fanboys are starting to grumble now but you refuse to do anything about it just like Nintendo. Maybe the grass is greener on the other side.

    • Oh yah, I remember reading in the news that the sky is falling.


    • While I agree that the 8 bit games have been overused lately, Sony has no real control over that. Companies make whatever game they want to and they then release it on Sony’s console. If it was an actual studio owned by Sony (Naughty Dog, for example) that was making all of these 8 bit games, you would definitely have a point. As it stands you’re barking up the wrong tree.

  • Karate Champ, Mega Man Legends (I expect Legends 2 in the near future as well, to complete the set,) Dungeon Defenders 2, Hardware: Rivals, Onigiri, P4: Dancing All Night,, Samurai Warriors 4-2, AND Tony Hawk 5.

    For some reason, I was thinking this would be a slow week. Best drop I’ve personally seen in a while.

  • This list should make one thing abundantly clear to astute observers: The video game market collapse is coming, very very quickly.

    • Not sure what you’re talking about. If the video game market collapse is coming, it won’t be because of this list at all. Go to Steam for that.

    • Oh no… Some ‘astute observer’ doesn’t comprehend development cycles and expects AAA games that appeal to every group of gamers to drop every week… Such a shame.

    • @ElectroDragon
      It is like that with the entertainment industry. It happens like that in cycles.

      Music is the easiest to notice it with, if you ever listened to a radio station long enough. It will get on your nerves eventually, until you turn it off. Then a few to several months later, you will start hearing music you enjoy again.

      I definitely wouldn’t say it is collapsing. Sony just has a very bad problem with their media team, and rarely have the ability to inform customers of all the games not being mentioned.

      Partly due to projects being closed, or unsure of definite timelines about release, since they are sometimes legally bound not to use false advertising. (claiming a product, that doesn’t exist)

      There are rumors about upcoming games from certain members, but you have to be wary, since some are messing with you, and some are paid to advertise/sell.

  • Agetec! What happened? You were doing so well putting your shovelware PS1 games on the PSN, I was hoping to pick up Star Shooter Sanvein. Oh well, I’ll go back to playing the JP version instead.

  • Mega Man Legends!!! That was a complete shock and surprise, thanks guys! Any announcement on pricing yet?

  • Onigiri is finally coming out! Been interested in this for awhile

  • Hey Agetec!

    What happened to the PS1 games? Can you release Star Shooter Sanvein please? I’ve already bought it off the JP PSN, I’d buy the US release too if you put it on the store!

  • OMG, Karate Champ!!! I remember that one from back in the day. I just might get that. I’m also interested in Onigiri and the Uncharted demo. It actually looks like a pretty good week to me. Thanks.

  • For some reason, I haven’t been able to fully get into the PS Store on my PS3 in weeks. When I get in, none of the side tabs are available, only the top, but I can’t select anything yet.

  • I have a dream…
    The day the ps1 and ps2 games can be played on ps4 and these games have at least one trophy to stay in the list of games played .

  • Cant wait for Dungeon Defenders II (Beta) was just remembering how great it was on PS3 and to find out its coming to PS4 is great . Cant wait for tuesday. Hardware Rivals looks awesome to

  • great drop. though id love to see azure dreams, and dlc cheats for old games… not sure how that could be done.

  • Still no word on magic duels at least I can play dd2 will I wait

  • Can’t wait for Tuesday so I can pick up my Persona 4 Dancing All Night Collector Edition!

  • Here’s what I’m playing next week:

    P4D P4D P4D P4D P4D P4D P4D P4D MegaMan Legends P4D P4D P4D P4D P4D P4D P4D P4D P4D

  • I want Growlanser Generations in PS Classics!

    ..just saying

  • P4D, that is all and no I haven’t tried P4G enhanced version…

  • Is Samurai Warriors 4-II a cross buy?

  • I will be dancing all night with Persona.

    I don’t care fro MMOs, however that Onigiri looks interesting.

  • Nice game

  • Big week! Toto Temple is an amazing couch multiplayer game! So excited!


  • Persona !!!! I cannot wait for it.

    Clearly, PS Vita is the must have for Rythm Games !

  • Really wish we could get PSone Classics on the PS4

  • October 26th is the 11th GTA: San Andreas Anniversary so how about a port to the PSVITA…thought I’d might as well try to ask #AtLeastOiiTried

  • Just got a question about the Nathan Drake Collection Demo. Is it limited in any way other than chapters to play? As in can it be replayed after completed?

  • I still own the original Mega Man Legends disc, but I’ll pick up the PSN version too to encourage Capcom to finally continue the wonderful series that was ahead of its time.
