  • Hey what is going on with the network? I tried signing in on my ps3 but it keeps saying the network timed out and also gave me an error code.

  • Ejem…. Garou: Mark of the wolves??????

  • Can’t wait for Rise of the Tomb Raider next week.

  • Love the Atari nostalgia

    • Atari Cash Grab. Releasing these as separate volumes is a **** move.

    • I can’t get it to come up in a search. I understand the physical version hot pushed back, but I thought the digital version was releasing today.

  • Classic Atari games! Yes!

  • Atari for me!!! ujitl Dragon Quest Builder next week

  • Mafia 3, Aragami, and free PS+ games this week, Tomb Raider and PSVR next week. The backlog just grows and grows.

  • Space Hulk and Viking Squad are looking great!

  • Can’t wait for Mafia 3!

  • Wow – Wheels of Aurelia?! I thought it was only PC — I’ll definitely be picking that up, along with Mafia III. Aragami is a good possibility, too — after I hear some feedback.

  • So ummm, “Aragami” and “Viking Squad” for me. With “Rogue Stormers” added to the wishlist for a sale.

  • Aragami!!! WOOOO! Been waiting for this one – for a good, modern Ninja Stealth game, really. The fact that this one has such a cool artstyle and cool ideas is icing on the cake! – for SUCH a long time!

    Rogue Stormers is coming up too? Didn’t even know it was getting a console version! Been interested in this since its from Black Forest Games, and the rebooted Giana Sisters series is EXCELLENT so far. Gotta check these out for sure!

    … and that’s it. Mafia III… eh. Never cared for the other ones, and this one doing a review embargo doesn’t bode well. Just seems like so many other heavily marketed “AAA” games recently. I’ll wait for reviews before even putting it on my radar, basically. None of the other indie games look interesting at all to me either. Not even close. But Aragami seems more than awesome enough to make up for it! :D

  • Mafia 3 for me this plus the PlayStation Plus games. I also have my eyes on Aragami, Gear 4 next week on my Xbox1 then WWE 2k17. The fall gaming is rush is a officially here.

  • Why the non-Tuesday release for Mafia?

  • Isn’t shu coming to PS4 on October 4 I am looking forward to that game

  • When can I download the campaign for COD4: MW Remastered?

  • Eh…. I’m sick of waiting. I just want Gears of War 4 and PlayStation VR. I grow tired of waiting for either of them. I’ll have a pretty good VR collection of games to play at launch. Tomb Raider also releases. Heh… Two more weeks. Feels like three more months.

  • Nothing for PS Vita this week?

    My wallet appreciates it.

  • Hardly anything new on Vita these days :(

  • Atari Flashback 1 and 2 seem like they would have been perfect for Vita. Oh well, yet another snub for Vita.

  • I’m still waiting patiently for Cosmic Star Herione to show up on a Drop! Any word? It looks so good, I sure hope it is!

  • Wish the Atari games and other arcade classics were on Vita

  • I see Sony getting crafty with Atari games, good thing we don’t already have Arcade Archive games with online leaderboards … Good call Sony, now all we need is Pitfall & all our throwback dreams will come true. Last week Contra, this week Atari, all we need now is Pitfall. That’s why i wanted a PS4, so i can play games from the 80’s in HD when can i expect Pong?

    • 1. Sony has nothing to do with those Atari collections. They were produced and published solely by Atari.

      2. PONG is included, Lucky you!

      3. These collections in no way slow down or otherwise interfere with the development of AAA games so why spend your time attacking them?

    • Because … like alot of “Real Gamer” he don’t know the difference between SONY, ATARI and Hamster Corp lol

  • Thats cool but when are we getting a Parappa the Rapper and Um Jammer Lammy PS1 port on Ps4?

  • Umm, where are the Vita titles? I can’t believe the Atari classics are not on Vita, this should be rectified as soon as possible.

  • Yeah, but unlike you i actually know that it’s still up to Sony what ends up in the weekly ps store update. But i like how randoms make a reference about being a real gamer, how bout them indies or are they not AAA enough for the drop? I get called out about Atari but bashing indies is cool, because that’s what pretend gamers do “Bash indies”

    • lol up to Sony? Because Sony is going to tell a publisher “no” to a new, functional product in their store.
      You want to play the blame game because you simply don’t like what was made. Grow up. Atari made this collection. DON’T BUY IT if you don’t like it. Sony at fault for anyone of the nonsense you’re talking about

  • Have the Atari Flashback discs been canceled?
    I babe both preordered from Amazon, but now they’ve gone from showing a price and date to just UNAVAILABLE and no date or description anymore. I hope it hasn’t. It was to be a gift for my brother.

  • Aragami looks interesting but otherwise a meh week for me. More interested in the plus games this week and dealing with my backlog.

  • Hi,
    Anyone know if Space Hulk Ascension (ps4 version) it’s coop local?

  • Aragami looks pretty epic, just waiting to see the price point and if theres a PS+ discount for release week on it. if theres no discount I’ll probably get it physically, otherwise Digital :)

  • Oh Friday October 7, 2016 the release of Mafia 3 so close yet so far

  • Where is the Assetto Corsa DLC? It was submitted a week and a half ago, Xbox had it up last thursday, we’ve had the patch enabling it since last thursday, yet still nothing on the store? What is with SCEA and these store updates? Always lagging behind.

  • Why Atari been remove from the store and my shopping cart?
