  • Enjoy the Drop! *returns to Destiny*

  • This week’s drop is good for me, in that it gives me more time to focus on Disgaea 5, Dengeki Bunko, and hopefully check out some Dragon Quest streams to see if I want to pick it up right away.

    Not a horrible line up, just not much for me.

  • Wasteland 2! Wish I could of preordered. :P Classic Fallout fans rejoice!!!!

    • Enjoy!

    • Wasteland 2 is great. I backed the KickStarter for it back in 2012 and followed it through development, even helped with the PC beta. Watching it go from tech demo to playable build to final version was a very fascinating progress.

      Wasteland is the spiritual predecessor to the entire Fallout series. Wasteland 2 is kind of what the first version of Fallout 3(code named Van Buren) would have been if it had been squad based. I still loved the Fallout 3 and New Vegas we got in 08 and 10, though! :)

  • I can’t wait for the Halloween sale hopefully the games I want will go on sale.

  • Sachiko is my pride and joy

    • Hope those that hasn’t played the first two are picking them up by tomorrow evening. 50% Corpse Party and Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, placing them at $10 each! Sale ends the evening of the 13th. I can’t wait to get my partying on with all these corpses!

  • I will be playing Wasteland 2 for many days and nights! I have been waiting so long for this game to come to consoles. I Can’t wait!

  • Dragon Quest Heroes!!

    I have only been waiting 4 years for another DQ game to come out in North America.

  • Yey! Already have Corpse Party and Drangon Quest preordered.

  • A little better drop in my opinion, being a Vita owner.

    Corpse Party is still a title I have yet to appreciate, since there has been only one $5 sale(years ago) on the PSP digital titles, that I missed.
    A reason that my Vita still may have a little life left to it, and keeps me coming back.

    For all of you, that have not tried the Atelier series, I personally recommend them on Vita instead, or would try renting them first.
    (They are more for you storyline enthusiasts, and those that like crafting)

    One of my youngest sons can not seem to get enough Minecraft, so a storybased game, is something I will be looking into for him around Christmas.
    I would advise keeping your digital price competitive, after the treatment of customers here on the PS Blog and your service departments.

    Unfortunately, I can’t buy a PS4 due to a lack of backwards compatibility, so Dragon Quest must be forgotten.

    WRC 5 I would need a good reason to purchase, already owning WRC 3. Although, it is an awesome Vita choice, if you do not have it already.

    Hope to all of you actual gamers out there.
    That you are not getting your wallets gouged, and that a good game is not too far away.

  • Hi!

    Is Back To The Future Ps4 cross-buy for those who bought it on Ps3?

    Thank you for your answer

    • Probably not as none if of the other Telltale games have been Cross-Buy but it would be awesome if it was or atleast offer some sort of discount. But mostlikley it will be full cost. I will just wait for it to have a good sale price sometime in the future.

  • One Upon Light looks really neat.

    • Also really interested in The Talos Principle, but the launch price is too steep for me.
      And as little as strategy games interest me, I really enjoyed what I saw of Grand Ages: Medieval.
      A solid Drop, this week.

    • I agree about The Talos Principle. I want the game, but i’ll wait for it to go on sale.

  • how about a release date on Game of Thrones episode 6 ??

  • After preordering Corpse Party: Blood Drive on a whim, I decided to check out the other two games shortly after in July. I was blown away. Have been extremely excited to play those poor kids’ tragic, gore-soaked conclusion ever since.

  • Sorry Enxix I didn’t preordered Dragon Quest Heroes . I change my mind on preordering Tales of Zestiria instead.

  • What about classics? No PSNow please, thanks.

  • Hopefully the Arland collection has Rorona Plus, and not the original. The original is rather shoddy compared to the Plus version.

    • I doubt the Arland Collection includes Rorona Plus instead of vanilla Rorona, since it seems to be published by Nis America, who published the original PS3 games, but didn’t publish Rorona Plus (published by Koei Tecmo).

      All that being said, on its favor, NISA do has been publishing some physical/limited edition versions of some Koei Tecmo games lately, so perhaps bringing Rorona Plus to the collection would not be entirely out of the question.

  • Huh, it looks like the sorting is a bit wonky on the comments here. 12:01 is showing up before 9:49 am

  • I am sad that the rumors of the ps3 version of Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below not being localized were true.

  • Still can’t find the Hades nor Athena original color skins for Saint Seiya Soldiers Soul… When are you guys going to fix this issue?

  • Ever get that feeling you should have just upgraded your phone and computer instead of buying a console. Waiting for games to show up from steam and iOS is getting old.

  • Thanks Sony for all of these jrpgs coming my way i love it keep them coming, been playing Disgaea 5 so much got dragon quest already paid off and plan to kill it this week, next week Tales of Zestiria collectors edition on its way =D.

    • Dragon Quest isn’t really a JRPG. Its a dynasty warriors clone from what I have read. I was looking forward to it as well until I saw gameplay and read up on peoples reviews of it.

  • Why can’t we pre order wasteland 2? Is something up with it Ryan?

  • That is a LOT of Games :P

  • I honestly didn’t know this collection was a thing until right now. Already own the three arland games on psvita. Not sure if I want to double dip.

  • Hey Ryan,

    You list what is coming to PS Music, Video and Vue every week, but not PS Now.

    What about listing the new rentals coming to PS Now every week? Are they not adding to the rental library anymore, just additions to the subscription library?

  • Any information on WRC 5 file size for Vita and PS TV compatibility?

  • Is there anything in the works for ps1 classics such as saga frontier 1 and 2, vandal hearts 1 and 2, jade cocoon, einhander, Diablo, Megaman legends 2, brigandine, etc.

  • I’ma be coppin’ that party pack!

  • Hey Ryan, I see no mention of the first dlc of The Witcher 3, Hearts of Stone. That’s practically a full game by itself.

  • Hi Guys,

    Do you have any news about when the new Bloodborne expansion will be available for pre-order? And also the new Far cry game?

  • Is Final Fantasy xiI coming out this week?

  • wondering if there is a trial for Minecraft story mode want to try before i buy

  • No, there isn’t. The only system Sony is still interested in is the PS4, and they still haven’t created a way to play any sort of Classics on it. My personal theory is that it’s not capable of playing PS2 games, so they don’t want to embarrass themselves and turn on PSOne classics without them (because really, just about anything with a CPU and a video port can play PS1 games). The only one I can help you with is Einhander. Make yourself a JPN PSN account and get it there. The game is in English with Japanese subtitles.

  • I’ll be wrapping up my re-plays on Uncharted trilogy (Nathan Drake Collection) just in time to dive into Back to the Future remaster for PS4 and Wasteland 2.

  • ANd this is why I have a love hate relationship with the holiday release schedule. Everything looks cool and fun this week, but limited time means I’ll still be playing this weeks games when Uncharted 4 is released.

  • How much will Wasteland 2 retail for? $39.99? I want it!

  • Is Inside Out able to rent tomorrow or is it buy only?

  • Any idea if Wasteland 2 digital will be up to download at midnight?
    The lack of any preorder or preload options are disheartening… Makes me think it’ll be a no show tomorrow.

  • I think I’ll buy this Back to The Future Game. I played the first part on PS3 and I liked it. Plus, I just watched the 3 movies on Amazon Prime this week so I’m pumped!

  • More Dragon Quest! Yay!

  • In theory, the ability to preload games would be one of my favorite PS4 features. However, it’s pretty hard to use it when the game (The Talos Principle) still isn’t available to buy even one day before release.

  • Is the Arland Trilogy going to have all the DLC characters included like the vita versions, or are they gonna remain as DLC. I already have Atelier Totori and Atelier Meruru for the vita and while I don’t mind playing them again on the PS3, if I have to buy the characters for those two and Rorona (since I didn’t play it), I’d rather just buy Rorona plus for my Vita and leave it at that.

  • Fibbage 2????? Take my money!!

  • Interesting that Bedlam, a game that’s still in Early Access on Steam, is being released tomorrow.

    p.s. I highly recommend The Talos Principle to anyone remotely interested in puzzle games.

  • Yeah great drop! Already preloaded Dragon Quest Heroes yesterday all systems go!

    Thinking about Corpse Party (my poor wallet =/

  • This is one hell of a week with DQ: Heroes, Wasteland 2, Minecraft: SM, BttF, Jackbox, etc all coming out. I’ve played Wasteland 2 on Steam and it was one of the best RPGs on the PC of the last decade. I’m a Fallout purist who loves the originals and this game is as close to those as we’ll ever see again. DQ: Heroes looks like a dream. I’m usually not into Dynasty Warriors type games but I’ve been with DQ since the original Dragon Warrior on NES and I can’t get enough of that universe. Honestly, with the vast array of weapons, armor, and most importantly monsters that is one of the few franchises I believe actually lends itself to that type of gameplay the most. I think people underestimate how good it could be.

  • Do we get a sale this week?

  • When will these be available to download? I’m not seeing Wasteland 2 on the store. thanks for any info. Cheers.

    • The halloween sale should start today if I remember correctly, it gets split up into 2 weeks. Also, I still dont understand why we had like 30 games released in the last month or so, but im stuck playing Super Meat Boy and Broken Age. I appreciate the free games, but at the same time, Im still technically paying for them. I love you Sony, just do better next time please haha.

  • It states that The Talos Principle “Deluxe Edition” that includes the DLC is available in stores and digitally. I just purchased The Talos Principle on the playstation store but it’s not deluxe edition nor does it have the option for the deluxe edition. What’s the deal?

    • EDIT: Upon starting the game, you are given the option to start the base game or the DLC. Therefore, ignore my original post. The DLC is in fact included in the PS Store Digital version.

  • Corpse Party and Farming Simulator 16! Perfectly reasonable double feature of games for me.
