  • First.

  • Looks like I’ll be getting Sword Art Online Lost Song, Star Wars Battlefront and Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon this week.

    • Nice haul. Im also excited for Mystery Dungeon and Battlefront, even though I don’t have a console to play the latter :/

  • great week

    • Any prices on Super Star Wars? And are the other games (Pod Racer, Bounty Hunter and Jedi Starfighter) releasing Tuesday as well?

  • Any prices on Super Star Wars? And are the other games (Pod Racer, Bounty Hunter and Jedi Starfighter) releasing Tuesday as well?

  • I see the PS2 Star Wars games that are supposed to come with the Battlefront bundle aren’t mentioned. Not coming this week, or waiting on a news story tomorrow? ;)

    • They are prob relasing one each week, in preparation for the movie. All games have been rated and have their trophies up already

  • Probably just Super Star Wars for me.

  • Let me know when Hollow Fragment’s translation on Vita is actually fixed. Shouldn’t have to buy the console version just to have an English script that makes sense.

    • Just buy Lost Song. The pre-order comes with the PS4 version of HF.

    • @Trendy_Kid:
      That doesn’t fix the problem in the slightest. People paid $40 for that game on the Vita, and have the right to expect some decent treatment at least. If they translated the game properly finally, then they shouldn’t be charging extra so the player can be forced to move to a platform that they don’t want to play on.

      This is just distasteful practice, and is a large reason that I refuse to support this game series.

  • Super Star Wars also on vita?
    That nice

    • Yep! ;D

    • That is awesome! There was no mention of this on VITA prior, but now probably gonna get this. Maybe I’ll wait for a sale for Super Star Wars, or if they have a bundle with the new games.

      If those came to VITA also, well, that would be a huge feet, but I don’t expect that. Weird that there is no mention on Racer’s Revenge, Bounty Hunter, or Jedi Starfighter on this Drop though.

  • I realize it’s probably just a special occasion given the Battlefront marketing deal, but I think it would be really cool if more SNES games made it over to PlayStation :-)

  • I see Sony is holding out until the last minute for my spend $100 get $15 credit so I can’t preorder Battlefront… Nice 1!

    • Mine still hasn’t posted.. the details of the promotion said on or before Nov 17th. That’s today.. no $15 yet!

  • I missed out on Deadpool on PS3 so I look forward to the PS4 version. It is being listed for $50 in retail, is that the correct price? Seems a little high. I do want to play the game, but I will wait until it comes down in price.

    • It’s a decent game, great writing, awesome voice acting highly recommend if your a fan or the character and the x-men series. The negatives are the combat is terrible, and the visuals aren’t good. Doesn’t look like that improved in the remaster, seems more like a straight port.

  • Great drop! What happened to Pod Racer, Bounty Hunter, and Jedi Starfighter though?

  • Super Star Wars for me as well. Hoping to see more classic games on PSN.

  • Appreciate that Super Star Wars is also coming to Vita, will pick it up.

  • Happy 2nd Birthday PS4. Stoked for Battlefront!

  • HTR+ sounds neat. I’ll be looking into that and Super Star Wars.

  • I’m another person planning to buy Super Star Wars. I played it a bit on my SNES when I was much younger and remember loving the adjusted versions of John Williams’s soundtrack. I don’t remember it playing the best, but games were definitely much more challenging back then (for better or worse), so it will be interesting to see if it really was that difficult or if my older age makes me more patient. Whatever the case, I hope we see more 16-bit classics like it in the future.

    • Its not difficult if you know the secret area to farm 98 lives like i do ;) lol. Played the stuffing out of the game back in my childhood and about to do it again once this battlefront ps4 bundle of mine comes in.

  • Will be picking up my LE PS4 with Battlefront tomorrow night. and finally I can start playing TellTales “Game of Thrones” with the last episode coming out.

    Also on this day Nov. 15th Happy Birthday to the PS4 and Happy Birthday to me.

  • SAO Vita.

    …That is all. (well, besides the Gods Eater costumes for Tales of Zestiria)

  • Nothing for me this week, but I’m still buried in Black Ops 3, Fallout 4, Halo 5, and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Barely enough time for those. If everything goes to plan, Just Cause 3 will be my last game purchase of the year (Dec 1).

  • Anything new in the Deluxe Edition of Resident Evil Revalations 2?

  • Please tell me the Mos Eisley Bar boss is still a cheap piece of crap.

  • SAO I can’t wait! already pre-loaded!

  • So I guess that Revelations 2 Deluxe Edition, doesn’t make its way to Vita?
    Wow, Nice Job.

    My Vita is still waiting for some love. Oh wait, waiting for past titles to be sold again for remasters on the PS4.

    Rather Bungie get with it, and put Destiny on PC already.
    If I got to get the same game remastered, for too much $$$, I would rather get more content and balancing on it semi annually.

    • Bah , quit being self entitled about the ps vita and just play your Nintendo 3DS… :/

      Nothing at this point will please an insatiable human being like you…

  • SUPER STAR WARS?! Cross Save? Still want! But Cross Save?! Can we get Empire and Jedi too?!

  • But what about the other games in the battefront bundle? Like bounty hunter? There are four extra star wars games coming in the bundle right? When can the rest of us play those?

  • When do we get the 15 for spending 100 in October?

  • I hope we get more Star Wars Classics on PSN. Thinking about the other 4 battlefronts, x-wing VS. tie fighter, rouge squadron, shadows of the empire, and dark forces 2: Jedi knight + Mysteries of the Sith.

    So many great games.

    • y u no kotor

    • They have the three Battlefront psp games already, missing Battlefront 1 & 2 for PS2 though. Battlefront 2 for the PSP was just on sale a couple of months ago for a dollar.

    • @Mistic

      I’m talking about HD/trophy/leaderboard blah blah blah…prerelease, in Higher Definition or otherwise. Of course Kotor too! Couldn’t leave that out, just listing some examples. As far as Battlefront classics, I don’t just want the excellent PSP titles on the PSP/PSTV/PSV, but on PS4, or PS3, with the online back up and running. Since gamespy closed down, they are singleplayer/ad hoc only. (Something DICE’s SW: BF won’t even have once its server days exhaust as well, saving small minigame-sequence survival modes and such)

      That’s why getting the PS2 classics needs just as much work. I heard, when they announced it, that these announced classics were getting trophies, motherboards, updated controls, and visuals. I hope that Racer’s Revenge also has online servers for its fantastic multilayer. :)

  • Super Star Wars was awesome back in the day. Crazy hard, but awesome. I definitely want! I’ll get Battlefront for Christmas and Dreamals look cute. :)

  • Will those battlefront ps4 themes will be purchasable after the game comes out for those who are getting it at retail?

  • Nice! I’m going for SAO

  • What about all the other bundled star wars games? Bounty hunter, podracer, etc?

  • Hey, are we sure I LOVE MAKONNEN 2 is coming out next week on PS Music? Or is it just going up for pre-order or something?

  • Super Star Wars: The only way to get a story based single player Star Wars game this gen.

    Bioware had something special before it was made into an MMO and ruined.

    Sad times.

  • Super Star Wars on vita as well as ps4 is a real treat to say the least, ready for my copy of SAO:L.S. to come in the mail :)

  • Definitely grabbing GoT as I got the season pass when it was on sale a while back. Tempted to get Super Star Wars, but I think I’ll wait on that as I barely scratched the surface of Fallout 4 and just yesterday picked up Dragonball Xenoverse for $10. So I have plenty of gaming responsibilities for now.

  • Why aren’t there ever any announcements on what sales are coming up in th store?

    Nothing for me this week.

  • What about the Bounty Hunter HD release?

  • I know that many people here get ignored, but I have a question and I’d appreciate it if someone from the team could answer me.
    2 promotions on psn store caught my eyes.
    -Pre order Star wars and get free themes for ps4.
    -Pre order SAO: Lost song and get SAO: hollow fragment for ps4 for free.
    My question is; Why are those promotions only available for PSN store buys? I pre-order both of those games, but the retail version, and there’s no way to get those offers in my case, but why?

    I remember that people who bought the retail version of Minecraft for ps3, they could show proof of buying the game, and they would get the ps vita version for free on PSN store. Why can’t you do the same with the promotions for Star Wars and SAO: lost song?
    Im the kind of person that loves to have physical copies of my games, and i find it unfair that only PSN store buys are getting the good stuff. It should be the same for everyone.

  • Star Wars week :)

  • Definitely getting Super Star Wars for my VITA. But…

  • It would be nice if they would start mentioning what Vita releases are PSTV compatible with these “drops” and “store updates.” There are some games that are compatible, but are not on any “official list.”

    I have contacted Bandai Namco to find out if the new Sword Art Online is PSTV compatible, and no response. I wonder if Super Star Wars is PSTV compatible, guess I will find out soon enough.

  • super pissed the 4 classics aren’t launching all at the same time, and Sony / EA remains mum on their release dates. I was looking forward to these. I wonder how pissed the people who buy a bundle will be when they find out they can’t download these yet. Its even worse if they make them available for the bundle and not for everyone else.

  • Will there be any plans to bring the other two Super games like Super Empire Strikes back and Super A New Hope to the Playstation 4? Cause i’d totally buy them for sure.


  • It would be really nice if the pictures for each game linked to the PSN Store page instead of just Flickr.

  • Where is Arcade Archives Shanghai III? I can’t find it in the store, but all the other games are already there.

  • Borderlands Triple Pack…lovely I’m definitely getting that.Also in that The Crew pic looks like the game has good graphics lol.
    And whats the deal with Revelations 2 Deluxe Edition?…whats more in it?

    And man how I wanted Battlefront but I gotta resist.
