  • Enjoy the Drop! And Happy Weekend!

    • I thought darkest dungeon was coming out this week as well :(

    • Hey Ryan, World of Tanks was announced to release on January 19th in the US. Why isn’t it posted here? Did it get pushed back?

    • Forgot to mention that World of Tanks would be releasing on January 19th on PlayStation 4.

    • Well crud now thanks to the studio behind Tennis in the Face, and King Oddball I have a song stuck in my head…

      “I predict a riot…. I predict a riot!”

      Not to mention Dark Cloud 2, and a Boy and his Blob.

      Ugh… The backlog it NEVER ends.

      Unless you’re an elitist. Then you complain that you never have anything to play because they apparently only deserve 100+ million dollar budget titles.

    • thanks but any news about when Dark Souls 3 will be available to Pre-Order for PS4 ?

    • What time will these games become available??

    • sad will never see the great ps2 rpgs to vita. great that some are now being ported to ps4. xenosagas would be awesome to have on vita. i can always dream though.

  • Wow, lots of games for PS4 and even Vita gets a bunch too. Great to see

  • Never played the dark cloud sequel so kinda excited. Replaying and almost beat the first one

  • Dark Cloud 2 tho

  • Wow, a surprisingly stacked week! Time to do some pre-purchase research.

  • Is it possible to know when will we be able to pre-order Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth on the PSN?

  • Why are we only getting one ps2 game a week or every other week? Can y’all bring like 5 at least every week. It’s a bunch of ps2 classics i want but the main one is Burnout Revenge. I’ll be happy with just that tbh. Gran Turismo 3 and 4 would be nice as well. So far (besides the GTA games and twisted metal) have not gotten me excited. Pretty ok list for this week though.

  • I told the wife Dark Cloud 2 was coming out on Tuesday, she said see you in June I love that woman :)

  • Fellow gamers! PLEASE do not buy 5 Star Wrestling. It’s an unfinished, unpolished mess of a game and the developers do not deserve your business. Take it from someone who wasted money on it the first time around.

    • thanks! Im playing arc the lad first anyway and then the dark cloud games

    • Agreed.

      I caved and bought the original release on the PS3 while it was on a sale. Regretted that purchase real quick.
      The game does nothing well at all. The visuals are mediocre, the animations are choppy and do not look good at all. The gameplay is slow, clunky and unresponsive for the most part.

      Definitely save your money for something better and do not support this shoddy game.

  • Awesome drop. My wallet is going to take a giant hit. Can’t wait to finish Dark Cloud 2 (ps2 disc was scratched).
    Looking forward to “Not a hero” on February 2nd.

  • Question: Will dark cloud 1 have a psplus discount when dark cloud 2 hits the store like when arc the lad came out? and the gta trilogy?

  • Really excited for Dark Cloud 2. Just finished the platinum for the 1st.

    Anywhere we can go to request PS2 games?

  • Dark Cloud 2!!!!! genius! It’s almost like you guys listen, you just don’t tell us that you listen.

    This made my week. Please add Dragon Quest 8 and Xenosaga 1-3!! :D :D :D

  • A Boy and his blob will be PSTV compatible?

  • PS STORE please bring back (NEW THIS WEEK)

  • Hi Rayn .. Can u ask PS STORE to bring back (NEW THIS WEEK)

  • Got $16 waiting on my account for Dark Cloud 2(I know it’ll be $15). My Favourite Game of all time :). I platnum’d Dark Cloud yesterday so I can play Dark Cloud 2 immediately lol.
    I hope Dragon Quest 8 comes too. I never got to play through it as a kid and I Bought DC1 and Rouge Galaxy on PS4 already. Love to finish up that Level-5 Collection.
    Hoping Sony and L5 team up on Dark Cloud 3 soon. I’m dying for it lol

  • I heard from someone who played it on ps3 that 5* wrestling is a huge pile of garbage. Was it fixed up or just ported over? If its a port, I’d stay far away from this one.

    • It was indeed garbage. Staying far away is a good plan.

    • the fact this game comes out this week and there hasn’t been any gamplay footage at all since this game got announced late last year, definitely doesn’t seem on the up and up after the product we got on the ps3. But they got Rey Mysterio to be involved in this, I would hope he wouldn’t put his name behind something he didn’t think did a service to his industry or his own brand

  • dark cloud 2 nice now i just need the other games i really want but are hard to find for a reasonable price

  • 5 Star Wrestling should be cross buy, or discounted, for the ones who already bought it. I wish these ps2 games were playable on Vita too, and no not just remote play.

    • technically I think is a “different” game than the ps3 game

    • @Superstone I’ve been thinking the same thing about the PS2 games. If they ever make them where we could download to our Vita and play without an Internet connection I would buy some of these.

      Visited Toronto a few years back and had a great time there. Took my oldest son to his first MLB game to watch the BlueJays. I’ve always wanted to watch Supercross in their stadium too.

  • Can’t wait to get my RE0 on. These games were the reason I had a GC back in the day. And REmake HD was pretty well done so I got faith 0 will be just as good.

  • This is just my opinion so don’t hate.. but I really wish they’d stop with these lame indie games.. from people weve never even heard of.. thone games belong on a ps1.. a wii.. wiiu, xbox.. Nintendo ds.. game boy color.. I feel like ps4s power and potential is just being wasted on these, things they call games.. wish there was a serious console were not just any developer can turn on a computer and poop put games for.. I’d like triple A games only.. with real DLC.. I wouldn’t mind waiting even 3 years for a new game to come out, as long as its worthy of such a console.. I wish they worry more about getting these amazing ps2 games on ps4.. no games I’ve never ever heard of.. sorry.. it was all about gta, dragon ball z, matrix, and the Sims for me haha..and ratchet and clank.. those games could entertain me for years! Smack down here comes the pain? Anyone? But anyway yeah.. I feel like, the video game world isn’t catering to me anymore.. just the little kids.. and it may be true but hey I’m still here.. I work. Pay my bills, buy my own games.. sorry if I don’t wanna see games I can’t beat with my toes..

    • Damn someone get some spell checking on my illiterate butt…

    • I’m with you. This store update is awful, full of bad games.

    • Ok, so you get you’re AAA games anyway, so why should not we wanting indies get ours aswell?, No need to complain over too many games is it?, you can just ignore them! Yes to both if you ask me, as long people buys them there is a market for them and they will be released. With over 35 millions ps4 sold already I suppose there will be a market for all kind of games and not just the ones you like!

    • The believe that indies impact “AAA” game development is a fallacy. Most times those folks would just not develop games. Sure some of them came form “AAA” places to make their won games, but somebody else stepped into that role, so there is no loss.

      If you don’t care for them great, that is your opinion, but it seems it is you that “hates”. I’m sure you are not alone, but do you feel better by degrading other folks? Many of them this is their life’s passion, their calling in life. I’m sure many of them would say if you don’t care for it fine, it is your opinion, but most artists won’t demean another’s work, just accept it for what it is.

      I don’t care for GTA at all, but I get that others do. Enjoy.

    • I will hate on you because you sound like an idiot. An idiot who thinks they have a fresh point of view.

    • I don’t hate ignorance, but I don’t agree with it, either.

      You’re free to support whatever games you want to support with your time and money. What you don’t get to do is decide what games are released or available to the rest of us.

      Every single game developer in history started as “people we’ve never even heard of.” It’s often the people you’ve never heard of who come up with a revolutionary idea, ideas that are later incorporated into those great AAA games you seem to love.

      Don’t knock games just because they’re indie. Knock them if they ought to be phone games that bring nothing to the console, or knock them if they’re unplayable, or knock them because they’re just a copy of another game that bring nothing new to the table. Those issues can affect AAA titles just as easily as indie games, however, and you can’t tell that’s what you’re going to get just by the size of the studio that made the game.

    • While I don’t fully agree with you, I can see and share your point.

      Indie studios are fine, we need new developers with fresher concepts and ideas, that’s fine. The problem is that PlayStation, Sony or whoever is no filtering enough and too many bad games get through.. no quality control, unfair prices, and not even maintenance over time (not a single patch).
      And since we get a fair amount of games like these is that many people share the same opinion you have in regards of indies.

      Now, for those that are fine, I really don’t care, some people likes them, others do not.. we don’t need only AAA, that’s a matter of taste, the more games, the better, but it would be great to filter the garbage out… at least a little bit.

    • So… only games that appeal to you should be made? Well that’s a pretty sad opinion. It’s fortunate you’re not a publisher.

    • Just order Uncharted

    • Well like I said, just my opinion… I dont support little indie games..I know studios like rockstar or treyarch started of as developers we didn’t know but that was back then.. back when we didn’t have this technology or potential in a system.. I believe indie games belong on weaker and older systems and that’s how these studios should get their name out.. I guess you guys are right that indies dont hinder AAA games development.. but to me it’s sad that Sony accepts indie games as new good content being released.. I feel like they do indies just to say “we get fresh content all the time” to me it’s “we get fresh garbage all the time” I’m sorry but to me indies suck.. and by extension the network kinda sucks too.. idk why I keep getting kicked from my own party chats.. they should make it free like ps3.. but anyway, if I was a new studio and wanted to get my name out, I’d try and compete with call of duty or assassin’s creed or gta.. not fricken spyro or crash [awesome games but old] .. for example, no mans sky, im excited af for that. But some of you are just bound to hate and that’s fine, it doesn’t ruin my day, I was just venting and thumbs up for those who agree with me.

    • Nobody educated agrees with you.

  • Stupid quesiton but any chance of a PS4 port of Sonic & Sega Allstars racing transformed? I knowit’s been ported everywhere else i’m just a bit curious.

  • Pretty stacked week. I’m actually excited about multiple titles this week.

  • Still waiting on February 2nd to come. Too many games I’m looking forward to come out that day.

  • Would Love RE: Zer0 on PS Vita.

  • Will the Biohazard Origins Collection be released physically on PS3 or only the two games separated?

  • Is there an official word on Croixleur Sigma PS4 being cross-buy for the Vita, which is planned for later this year?

  • Never I played any of the Dark Cloud games, but I’m sure some people have already own the original PS2 discs of those games and want to play them on the PS4 without having to re-buy them. Why can’t you just allow those who already own the original PS2 discs of the PS2 games (that are being offered on the PS4’s digital store) to just simply put the original PS2 disc of a game into the PS4 and have it unlock the digital emulated version of that same game (either for free or for a small upgrade fee)? And for god’s sake, get both Sierra/Activision and Marvel/Disney to get The Incredible Hulk Ultimate Destruction (a fav of mine that I own the original PS2 disc to) emulated on the PS4!

    • “I never”, not “Never I”.

    • Because genus, they make more money this way. Sony is not a charity.

    • Because not all these games are made by Sony so rights have to be repurchased to use it. Not a simple thing when you consider the scope of how many of those there are. And not just the ip but the soundtrack, etc.
      The systems internally are not the same with the exception of the original PS3, which had the emotion engine inside (which no one wanted to shell out the extra money for it’s inclusion). Then they have to remap controls and have someone test it out for QA. All work that needs to be paid for.

    • I just want you to understand this.
      You bought a game on PS2 over 10 Years ago. You’ve had the game all these years. You can play on PS2, an emulator, or an early ps3 console. Only thing you’re promised it would work on is PS2. They upgrade the game and release the game on PS4. Now you feel you should be compensated for buying a game so long ago it already paid for itself or bought it used where sony got nothing from it.
      This isn’t Xbox One to 360 compatibility where it’s the same game just running through emulation. This is being uprendered genuinely, added trophies, full ps4 functionality etc. They need to tweak it to make it run perfectly. Hell Dark Cloud on PS4 has a little bit of a sound glitch in the opening theme and had to patch a graphics glitch that showed on the screen every time writing was on screen. If you want to play those games you own play them. I own Dark Cloud 1 and 2. I bought 1 again on PS4 and will DC2 as well. $15 is alot better than the $67 I paid on DC2’s second day of release lol

  • Where is attractio for PS Vita, Ryan?

  • Sony makes me :(

    Good thing Oddworld comes out on Vita….Whoohooo.

    You can keep your digital only ps2 classics, after what you did with PS1 and PS3 digital owners. I would rather build my next Steam machine.

  • Thanks again for another great PS2 RPG Dark Cloud 2, I hope we’ll see Arc the Lad: End of Darkness and Grandia Xtreme soon, thanks.

  • I would like to see these PS2 games on PS4 with trophies.

    Onimusha 1, 2 and 3.
    Haunting Ground
    Fatal Frame
    Ace Combat
    Resident Evil Outbreak
    Final Fantasy XII

    I am wainting for Assassins Creed Syndicate Jack The ripper DLC sale. Please.

  • Can we have Geometry wars 3 for sale ? thanks ^-^

  • Was going to get 5 star wrestling until i read from one of our fellow posters that the game’s still an unfinished mess :(

    Oh well, Life is strange and Resident Evil Origins on Retail for me this week.

    My .02

  • Read an article saying that “A Boy and His Blob” will launch digitally on PlayStation 4 on January 19th and that players who purchase the PS4 edition will also receive a PS Vita port free of charge as a cross-buy promotion. Is that true? Is A Boy and His Blob a cross play game (please, please, please, please, please!)?

    • Is it a good game? I read the description and it sounded fun.

    • Oh it’s a good game Spyroluver88. I would figure that they’re porting the *censored* version over to expand sales.
      That version was neat. With more conventional controls it’s gonna be awesome.

      Damn shame they were as quiet as heck on this one.
      Budget is getting killed by Dark Cloud 2 as is.

  • If I already own New and Tasty, can I still access the cross-buy feature?

  • Any idea if Square Enix plans to release Life is Strange on PS Vita??

  • Hey, it’s an issue of The Drop that almost no one is griping about for once! And all it took was the release of both a new and classic digital title in just about every genre imaginable…

  • hmm don’t see many good games but Croixleur Sigma, Atelier Escha & Logy Plus ~Alchemists of the Dusk Sky~, and Life is Strange. I’m just picky gamer ^_^

  • Seriously can’t believe they made another 5 Star Wrestling game… Hopefully this one still has the “fantastic” Andy Organ theme in it, that almost made it worth the asking price alone.

    Just Croixleur for me, great game, loved the PC version.

  • Resident Evil 0 and Dark Cloud 2!

  • There is too much to remember, wow. I’m just going to favorite this page and come back later with money.

  • World of Tanks was announced to release on January 19th in the US on PlayStation 4. Why isn’t it posted here? Did it get pushed back?

  • What about WORLD OF TANKS ? Will it be released tomorrow ?

  • Eeh another trash week. I dont care about resident evil, played life is strange aready the rest is indie trash. Though im tempted to grab 5 star wrestling but meh

    • Um… “indie trash” Assassin86?… Indie game development and support is the primary reason that original PSone owners have kept coming back to Sony. You might have bought the wrong console.

    • Well that explains why i havent brought a game since November and that I’ve been clearing my Ps3 backlog and gaming on my xbox 1 more then anything on my Ps4 ;)

  • Atelier Escha/Logy is the best in the series so far, I already own it for PS3 but am strongly considering getting it for my Vita as well.

  • Wait… Where’s Darkest Dungeon!? I thought it was coming out on the 19th…

  • OMG Dark Cloud 2!!!!!!!!!!!! Love that game.

    Other PS2 games I’d like to see up-rendered:
    Gauntlet Dark Legacy
    Champions of Norrath and Return to Arms

  • -Twin stick shooter
    -No Vita version


    Proufound. Sadness.

    The Oddworld remake though…YES PLEASE.
