  • Does anyone know an exact time Dark Cloud 2 will be released tomorrow? I’ve searched everywhere and I can’t find any information.

  • Hey… Nice games. How about we get something better then 13.7 cents in a code for PlayStation plus. Maybe one of these…? Probably won’t happen because of corporate greed. By the way people are giving out the codes you sent for free because they aren’t worth a thing. Fix your screw ups with something better or don’t do anything at all (lizard squad anyone?)

    • Right, and for less than half a day of intermittent downtime, which a lot of people didn’t even notice (like myself, as I have work and a life), they should give us a free game? Sounds more like consumer greed to me.

    • They were down for a day… they gave us a day of free ps+.

      Seems perfectly fair to me.

  • Definitely picking up Dark Cloud 2. It will finish my Level-5 PS2 Collection on PS4. The only three games from them that matter on the console…

    Now my personal #ps2ps4 list consists of only Drakengard 1 and 2, and Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance 1 and 2.
    We need more isometric ARPGs on the PS4. Sony should bring back Untold Legends. I was really disappointed we didn’t get a launch title like Dark Kingdom on PS3.

  • Can’t wait to play some Dark Cloud 2!! I plan to buy/fund copies for all my friends to play this amazing game. I can only hope that someday, somewhere in the (hopefully near) future I’ll be playing Dark Cloud 3.

    Man… I really want Levle-5 to make a Dark Cloud 3! Put in a good word for me to the people at Level-5, Mr. Clements?

  • Is Resident Evil going to be released on Playstation 3 as well? IF IT IS, is it going to be be cross-buy the same way Resident Evil HD was at its release date? The point is that when I entered Playstation Store, there is no information about the PS3 version, actually, it is only mentioned that RE0 is playable only on PS4. Thanks!

    PS: I’m so excited to watch how the PS2-on-PS4 game list is going up! Pretty interested on playing Dark Cloud 2 (again), and getting the platinum! Greetings!

  • Dark Cloud 2 and Croixleur Sigma are the only games i’ll be getting in this list.

  • I really need a ps4 to play these games ?. I understand that these games are fun and everything (I really like some of them) but then what is the reason for the power of the PS4?
    My point is that if these are the games for ps4. It is not better to play them with the ps2?. If I buy a next generation console. I hope next generation games. we are paying for it, it is not charity.

  • Two PS2 games that I would love to see get re-released on PS4 are both of the Champion of Norrath games. Anyway, this week’s drop will all depend on the respective price points for me. If Resident Evil 0 HD is going to be $19.99 then I will just wait for a sale of some sort.

  • Hey guys!

    What about World of Tanks? I know it releases today, but I don’t manage to play just yet. How come?

  • PLEASE SONY, put FIREPRO Wrestling Returns on PS4, its already on PS3.

  • WHERE IS DARK CLOUD 2!!! SONY YOU RELEASED THE 3RD INSTEAD OF 2ND WTF!!!! DARK CHRONICLES INSTEAD OF DARK CLOUD 2?!!! FFS!!

  • Disappointed to not see Darkest Dungeon up on the store, and no comments anywhere from developers. I get it, small team, lots to do, but I REALLY want that game on my Vita. At least a hint about release window would be nice.
