  • Also Flash Sale is on dont know why sony hasn’t added a blog post for that yet.

    Knack & Watch_Dogs are all under five bucks go grab them and stop whining about them not being be a free game with PlayStation Plus. If you cant afford games under 5 dollars then you need a new hobby.

    Yakuza 0 and Resident Evil 7 for me this week i cant wait.

  • Need To Put a Post That We Have A Flash Sale Going On Right Now Games For Under $5. Also I Really Enjoy The Yakuza Games.

  • No PS2 games for the PS4 this week neither? >:(

    Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, Haunting Ground, ObsCure, Resident Evil Outbreak, etc… so many good PS2 games that needs to return but instead we keep getting terrible fighting games from SNK, games from THQ Nordic that few people cares about and the worst games from Sony’s excellent PS2 catalogue.
    Please bring Konami, Koei Tecmo, Ubisoft, Activision, Atlus, Bandai Namco, etc as publishers for the PS2PS4 emulation!

    • No one cares what games you want. Every week it is someone spouting a list. You aren’t even a subscriber… Why would they listen to you?

    • Considering that SNK is finally bringing in games that wasn’t released outside of Japan is a good thing to me. Hopefully we’ll see a stand alone release of Samurai Shodown 2, Fatal Fury Special, and maybe KOF 98um and KOF 2002um.

    • +OctoWhopper hi I wasn’t even talking to you since I don’t care about your opinion :) I’m requesting other PS2PS4 games like Sony said we could do, and what if I’m not a Plus subscriber? I still bought a PS4 and games for it, and if they bought those PS2 games over to PS4 I will buy them too and they were requested by other people too.

  • Speaking about a FLASH SALE??? How about adding ULTRA STREET FIGHTER IV to a FLASH SALE! Come On we need that on a FLASH SALE ASAP!

    SONY??? USFIV please???

    • Never gonna happen. They want to push SFV as much as possible now, man – with that game being a sales disappointment, there’s NO WAY they’d encourage people to pick up the older one with the better art/character designs, better roster, and far more content :)

  • Buy Yakuza 0 please!!!

  • Please bring back the Store Update post on Tuesdays. it makes life easier.

    • I agree, I miss the Tuesday store update post.

    • Yup! In the past there were a few times when a game was released on Tuesday, but was not part of The Drop. We might miss this in the future. I’d rather get a post on the day the store updates than a few days beforehand.

  • no more updates posts on tuesdays, no head up about the flash sale. dont think i can support laziness.

  • Getting Earthlock and Yakuza 0.

  • Hi Ryan,

    Would you please let us know what is going on with the Tuesday updates, and what happened to the promised updates of The Drop on Tuesday, that you said would happen two weeks ago, and still haven’t happened?

    Thanks so much!

  • I’d like to add to the Flash Sale rant by saying the PSN Store on my Vita shows some games like Rayman Origins, Akiba’s Trip and Samurai Shodown Anthology in the Flash Sale section but are listed at the normal full price. What is going on?

  • If one has to go, how about getting rid of The Drop? The weekly Store Update is WAY more useful.

    • speak for yourself. I work in press and the drop is insanely useful to me and as a consumer that means its unknowingly useful for you!

    • “Unknowingly useful to you”?

      How do you know that? If they had the store update, then yes… That’d be way more useful to us, and likely to you.

      Having to scrounge for every sale, discount, specific release is more important than new releases. It’s more useful. That information, could easily include this same information as well. Without it, it’s much less useful to us.

    • So you don’t read reviews or watch them?
      You just blindly purchase things?
      The drop makes scheduling and planning easier so we have coverage ready for tuesday.

    • @STDlyMcStudpants

      The Drop’s content can be found on many websites. The Store Update…not so much. Of course, I would prefer both stay, but it appears the Tuesday update is now gone, and between the two, that’s certainly more useful than this release list.

    • I prefer the Tuesday update too, cause it was the best place to learn what dlc was added to all the games on top of more games than what are usually listed on the drop, so I really hope they bring it back

  • If the weekly sales stop being posted, the easiest thing for me will be to simply look at my wishlist once a week to see if only what I truly want is on sale. It’s great for me, because I’ll buy less.

  • So no Vita games even this week.

    But Hey! Thanks to Nintendo, the Switch is just around the corner !!

    • Lol gl ahead drop PlayStation we dont care.

      Lol the nintendo switch. You know nintendo charges for online with the switch now too. And you dont get to keep the monthly free nintendo games after the month is up even if you still own the sub. Heck there 5 games max at launch 2 nintendo exclusives and the rest are ports from here and xbox

    • @pablikenemy79 It seems that Sony and their third-parties wanted to focus more on the PS4 and way way way less on the PS Vita. And it’s sad because Sony and their third-parties are pretending that the PS Vita never existed.

      @TrueAssassin86x At least Nintendo and third-parties (including those that jumped ship to Sony and Microsoft) are supporting the Nintendo Switch. Yes, it sucks subscribers won’t keep their monthly games after a month is over, but at least Nintendo is offering old school classic retro NES and SNES games and not indie trash. Yes, there’s only, so far, 2 Nintendo Switch exclusive launch titles, But Zelda Breath of the Wild is gonna be game of the year and I forgive Konami for the stupid things they’ve done now that they’re making a Bomberman game (which is I wanted if Konami wants me to forgive them).

    • @pabilikenemy79 I miss the good old days when the PlayStation fanbase welcomes criticism (even if we disagree with one another). Nowadays, the PlayStation fanbase only welcomes opinions that are 100% positive. Post any opinion that has criticism in it (even if it’s just a smidgen of criticism), and a bunch of immature fantrolls (a combination of a fanboy and a trol) will be coming after you like wolves to a lamb.

    • “(a combination of a fanboy and a troll)” not “(a combination of a fanboy and a trol)”

    • There doesn’t happen to be a Vita game released this week…this week. Stop going off on the handle and wait for games that are planned to release on the Vita.

  • Thank you for the update! Can’t wait for Yakuza Zero…..though I wish you all would post about sales again…..I miss that. Even with a flash sale going on right now….sigh

  • Firefighter 2017 — The Simulation developer/ publisher?

  • RE7 getting the spotlight here and no mention of kh2.8 lol

  • After Gravity Rush 2 this week what another amazing week we have coming up. I’m already playing Yakuza 0 and if you have never played a Yakuza game before this is a perfect time to jump in. Then I’m hyped for RE7 and Kingdom Hearts. I played a bit of Earthlock on Xbox when it was free but I’d be interested in getting the PS4 version as well. Man so many great games this month.

  • I miss the store posts. And there isn’t even a post for the flash sale that’s going on.

    What’s up with the blog these days? Is it nothing more than a collection of ads from companies with new games coming out? Where’s the info for users?

  • If anyone is looking for a good local multiplayer game, I highly recommend Lethal League. I’ve had it on PC and will be grabbing it on PS4 for sure. It’s a blast with friends.

    • Lethal League is one of the best 2D sports/fighting games I have ever played! So glad to see it coming to consoles.

  • yeah, make another person wanting the store update on Tuesdays back, nice to see what is coming next week, but I have no clue on any new dlc or anything that might come out, please bring back the Tuesday store updates!

  • When’s that Patapon PS4 game coming?! I’m so excited, I check here a couple times a week just in case there’s news :)

  • Bring back store updates on Tuesdays. Post about flash sales!!!

  • Yakuza 0 is all I need.

  • How come they don’t bother to port the arcade archives onto vita?

  • Yakuza 0!!!! That’s what I’m getting. Resident evil and tales probably down the road. But I have some yakuza to punch in the face.

  • “The Drop” is a waste of time really… lazy… copy and paste… Weekly Tuesday Updates and Updates for Sales that’s what we need. Unless they give The Drop to someone who does a better job

  • Do you want to see SEGA port Zombie Revenge to PS4?

    Do you want to see CAPCOM port Alien Vs Predator to PS4?

    You can definitely influence them to make it happen by buying Double Dragon 4 and prove to them that modern gamers still care about Beat ‘Em Up genre.

    Double Dragon 4 graphics is not impressive? The game will cost less than $10 which means it’s already a good deal. Double Dragon 2 is still fun to play today because of its gameplay, not because of its graphics. You want a better graphics in the future? Then buy this first because they are currently testing the water. If their next Double Dragon still offers the same NES graphics, then you have every good reasons not to buy it again.

    Can you play Double Dragon 4 in multiplayer online? You bet you can thanks to PS4 share play feature.

    Remember Dragon’s Crown on PS3? CAPCOM released Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara in the same year as Dragon’s Crown. Was it a concidence? No. Proof that other game companies are keeping an eye on what games are selling well.

    • @Guyper Hate to break it to you but I have three things to say about your comment. First, I highly doubt buying Double Dragon 4 will convince Sega and Capcom to re-release their old school arcade beat ’em up games. Second, Zombie Revenge might get a re-release, but since it got mixed reviews from critic, it’s not popular enough to warrant a re-release. Finally, do you honestly believe 20th Century Fox will be so willingly to give the rights to Capcom just to re-release the Alien vs. Predator arcade game? I honestly don’t think so.

    • “critics” not just “critic”.

  • Love the Drop but what happened to the Tuesday posts called PlayStation Store Update? Liked those the most as a “complete” list of not only Games but DLC releases as well. (And music movies for those in to that)

  • I played Kingdom Hearts on the PS2, but haven’t touched anything since. Would like to get back into it, but what’s a good way to catch up and know what’s going on in the story?

    • If you have a PS3 you can get the 1.5 and 2.5 remixes that contain all the other current Kingdom Hearts games right now, otherwise you can wait until March to pick up the PS4 versions of the 1.5 and 2.5 remixes.

    • Thanks potter, I’ll look into the ps4 versions.

  • It would be very nice if Store Updates on Tuesday were brought back. If not, I can’t see much point in visiting the PS blog. There are many places for weekly info on new releases.

  • World heroes yes.! Will wait for re7

  • World Heroes coming! Is Art of Fighting next?

  • Supporting Yakuza by buying this new one Day 1. I usually wait for games to drop in price, but this series has always been at risk of being completely neglected in the West by Sega (and it was for a while). It’s too unique a gem to let fade away.

  • Aw c’mon Arcade Classics – give me Shock Troopers and some Metal Slug :P Earthlock comes out this week? Rad! … though my backlog is stuffed with RPGs atm so I don’t know when I’ll get to it. Still, it looks fantastic. Moto Racer 4 looks fun as heck. I know the PC version had a mixed reception, but that’s because no one makes arcade racers anymore and when they do, sim fans chew them out. Heck, most people going into MR4 never even played the first 3 games. MR4 genuinely looks like a blast.

    Got Tales of Berseria on Pre-Order and can’t wait to dive into it! It clearly looks to be THE next “inspired” entry in the series, like Symphonia, Vesperia or Xillia before it, and not “kinda off” like Zesteria or Legendia or something. Looks good! Yakuza 0 is also going to rule, but I’m gonna have to pick you up next month. I’m limiting my purchases this year – New Year’s Resolution. My backlog is out of control, and loaded with sweet stuff that deserves a play. So gotta take this year’s releases slowly. Gimme a week or two for that sale, Sega.

  • These flash sales were unbelievable! i thought it was an early april fools prank. I bought tomb raider and the order… For $5 you cant argue with that!

  • Sega man! Why weren’t we buddies before? I’m sorry for neglecting you like that. You did your best localizing games for us here in the west. Thank you so much when you released Hatsune Miku Future Tone for us and now you got Yakuza 0 for us.

    I know it will never happen but how about Ryu ga Gotoku: Ishin!
    (Yakuza Rebirth)

    I pray for the day :D

  • I’m happy to see Neo-Geo games come out onto the PS4, but I’d really love to see some non-fighters make their way out as well.

    My favorite Neo games are the ones which came out BEFORE there was even a single fighter on the Neo-Geo…

    Top Player’s Golf
    Baseball Stars Professional
    Magician Lord
    League Bowling
    Ninja Combat
    The Super Spy

    Then you have other greats such as Sengoku 2, Last Resort, Neo-Turf Masters, Pulstar, Blazing Star, Ninja Commandos, Shock Troopers.

  • I can’t sign into the store from android app, web page, or even the web browser on the ps4 lol. So i can’t buy anything and i am missing out on the flash sale. I can log into this blog so please fix this issue

  • There’s way too many great games coming out this month. Gravity Rush 2, Yakuza 0, Resident Evil 7, Tales of Berseria, Kingdom Hearts 2.8. There’s no way I can afford to get all of them at launch, so had to make a conscious effort to support Yakuza, because that series deserves as many sales as it can get. I don’t know why some of these weren’t pushed to March, when there’s really nothing important coming out, as far as gaming goes.

    • @ clupula668, I agree with you. By the time I finish with Yakuza, I bet RE7 and Tales of Beseria will have had their prices slashed on Amazon. I have had Yakuza pre-ordered for a long time and saved some money with Amazon prime discounts.

    • Don’t forget Nier comes out in March :)

      March is a busy month for me to be honest. The Switch, LoZ, South Park, Kh 1.5/2.5, Nier BB, Atelier…. @_@

  • Have Kingdom.Heart 2.8 on pre-order. Can’t wait yo play

  • @STDlyMcStudpants, what the hey? If you rely on the Drop for the press, then you must be missing deadlines left and right. This information is out there earlier in many other places. Your comments are just totally bizarre, which undercuts your assertion of working in the press.

    @varmintx, I agree with you. They implied/stated that they were going combine stuff. They just cut it out altogether.

  • Okay I’m here to complain. Why has the PS1 Classics category been removed from the PS Store???! Support this guys.

  • Just wanted to say that I really wish the Tuesday store update post would return. The drop is nice & all, but it is not a complete listing, nor is it all that helpful to me. The update post provided a clear list of everything new that week as well as what was on sale, without having to use the clunky store interface (either through the system or a web browser).
    I have often found items through that post that I hadn’t known about, and purchased because I saw them there. Without that post, I have lost a great deal of interest in what actually comes out every week, or what may or may not be on sale.
    Please bring back the Tuesday store update post.

  • Anxiously waiting for Yakuza 0 to unlock tonight. I’ve played Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 on PS3 and loved them, so I’m really looking forward to some street punk beat-downs coming to PS4 with Yakuza 0.

    While I know MotoRacer 4 won’t be anyone’s GOTY, I’ll still be getting it day one, as arcade racers are my favorite genre and PS4 doesn’t have enough of them. I know I’ll have fun with it.

    I think 2017 is going to be a very good year for truly fun games.

  • I’d also like to express the desire for the Tuesday store updates to return. Or at least, make the Drop more useful than what it currently is. When you first told us about the change, it was implied that the detail available in the Tuesday Store Updates would be carried into the Drop. Sadly, this does not appear to be the case.

    Key missing items:
    * Pricing for each game / item
    * Link the item to the Playstation Store (how hard can it be?)
    * Sales info/listings
    * Addons/DLC/Themes/etc

    If some of the above detail is not available due to timing issues, I’d suggest moving the Drop to Tuesdays, when you have all the info. As it stands, the Drop right now is much less useful that the Tuesday Store Updates were. It really is a step backward for the blog.

  • When are we going to see more PS2 emulations for the PS4? I’d like to see every JRPG for the PS2 re-released (yes, all of them), starting with the Namco Tales games, Star Ocean 3 and other Tri-Ace games, and Dragon Quest V & VIII. Sure, I could always run PCSX2 on my PC (in widescreen, no less), but it’s nice to have the extra trophies on the PS4.

    Also, why are many of the PS2 emulations more expensive than most PS2 Remasters on the PS3? It’s a lot more work to update the textures and models for a remaster than it is to tweak a few emulator settings and add trophies. The pricing model doesn’t make a lot of sense when you look at it in that perspective.

  • Why doesn’t PSN use, ” FLash Sale” for there PS1 and PS2 titles, Like Wu tang Shaolin style and Valkyrie Profile. I just notice the sonic the hedgehog games series. for 5 bucks. They would corner their own retro game market.

  • Some interesting games this week.

  • Tales of Berseria CE, Kingdom hearts 2.8 LE, and Yakuza 0 Business Edition <3

    Also wish they still told us what addons were added each week :(

  • So since Sony is no longer interested in actually letting us know what all is coming each week, what site does everyone like to use as a catch-all DLC release news? I’m about done with this site since the Tuesday updates are gone.
