  • A bit of a light week but that is okay.. Still getting The Escapists 2, Uncharted DLC and Chroma Gun for VR si should still be a fun week. What do you all think?

    • I strongly recommend bleed

    • I second Bleed.

      Duck Game is amazing as well.

    • Chroma Gun is for VR. Are you sure about that?

    • ChromaGun does not support PSVR. The developers have mentioned they are looking into bringing VR to the game in the future.

    • Getting three games is a “light” week?

    • I’m just jumping in here because it’s near the top and my comment is off topic, sorry… at least I don’t have an amazing job opportunity for you.

      The Blog made a post the first time there was a Humble Bundle for PSN games, but I don’t remember seeing similar posts for the other Bundles.

      There’s one going on now from 2K games. If you only care about PS4, it’s Evolve for $1, $9.99 worth of Battleborn money for beating the average and Xcom 2 for $20.

      If you still play on PS3, there’s quite a bit more. It also has the Vita versions of Xcom and Civilization Revolution, inot the $1 tier… for Vita (redundant but it felt right).

    • yeah i wrote that wrong didnt mean Chroma Gun VR meant Chroma Gun, too bad its not on VR … lol..

  • Hey Ryan, isn’t White Day also suppose to release 8/22?

    • The website I pre-ordered from in Canada says it’s August 29th, but in the trailer the publisher released 3 weeks ago, it says August 22nd on Steam and 25th on PS4… In any case, I guess it’s soon!

    • It looks like White Day is releasing 8/29 on PSN and a month after that at retail.

  • – UnCharted Lost Legacy
    – Madden NFL 18
    – Jak And Daxter
    – F1 2017

    All for me this week.

  • Bleed and Mystralia

    My week, finally!

  • YES!!! Thimbleweed Park, can’t wait!

  • Another great week.

    Excited about Thimbleweed Park, and Uncharted.

    Hoping, Swapquest is crossbuy.

  • Wish we had a handheld to play the ps2 games on, i would certainly buy more

  • A$AP Ferg’s Still Striving is so good! It was cool to see him show up on the PlayStation YouTube channel today.

  • What. A. Week. Exclamation. Point.!

    Way too many games (but not really) that I would love to play day one.

    Never heard of Bleed before this post but curious what other characters are in it.
    Chromogun looked cool in their blog post.
    I was mad I didn’t back Mages on Kickstarter, so can’t wait to see what is in store.
    Then obviously Uncharted is a must.
    Also this is Sparta(n)!

    And a gem I wasn’t expecting was the Velocity 2X. This was a great game (provided by ps plus subscription). If you’ve never played its worth a go.

    All in all. Take my money.

  • Madden NFL 18 and Uncharted Lost Legacy for me.. i gonna be very busy playing both next week

  • Bring it ND!!!!! I am all set for the Monday night extravaganza! HAHA! Cannot wait to go for that 36th Platinum! :)

  • What about people who already own Velocity 2X for PS4? There are two add ons already.

  • Does anyone know how much the individual Naruto games or the Trilogy bundle are?
    I already have Storm 4, so I’m not getting Legacy, but I’m curious on how much the bundle and individual games are.

  • Such a pity that Thimbleweed Park is not going to be released on the Vita…

  • I am getting One Piece Unlimited World Red and Uncharted Lost Legacy.

  • Is… Is that a Jason mask in the Book of Regrets art? From Friday the 13th? That’s not a copyright thing, is it? I genuinely don’t know. I just hope nobody’s gonna get in trouble for it.

  • Also, I got the season pass for UC4, so in a way I have Uncharted Lost Legacy pre-ordered. Does that mean I get Jak & Daxter for free?

  • Thimbleweed paaaaaaaark!!!! !!!!!!!

  • Man if I never had the Storm games legacy would be right up my ally. I want to get UC Legacy but I just updated my PC components….broke life.

  • It’s that time of year again! Madden time! The only game that drops value within months. $5 at a thrift store this time next year.

  • Definitely getting Uncharted since I pre order several months ago. And I need to pick up Velocity 2X. I wonder what is available for sales this week?

  • Can we download Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy on August 22 without buying Uncharted: The Lost Legacy?


    It tops out at 89 – at least when viewing the store with a web browser. That’s really low, especially with DLC and various bundle configurations to keep track of.

    Do you not want your customers to intend to buy more content?

    • Exactly. Glad someone said this. I have the same issue so I delete games off my wish list I wanted to buy, but now forget about them, all because of some ridiculous limitation of the wish list.

  • Looking forward to Uncharted. Not sure what this new Velocity 2X sku is, but I still consider the base game one of the best PS4 games.

  • Well darn, I guess I have to wait to play Uncharted since my PS4 is bricked… oh well maybe by the time I get a replacement the game will be on sale. Its a good thing I still have my PS3!!!

  • If this Velocity 2x Critical Mass has a brand new platinum count me in! Would love to platinum that game again.

    • Not sure if the trophies are different but if you like the game that much you might be interested to know there is a retail version scheduled to release October 3rd for the PlayStation 4 and Vita ($29.99 each). They both include all of the DLC and a “making of” documentary, while the PS4 release also comes with a soundtrack CD and what the publisher calls a “studio booklet.”

  • Yoooo, I’m on a road trip to see the eclipse and thought I’d bring my trusty vita and play some PS Now in the hotel. WTF Sony you need to put ps now back on my vita RIGHT NOW! The PC Master Race was right about this one. I feel betrayed and sad. It’s like Sony doesn’t like vita fans. It’s ridiculous! I get you want to put ps 4 titles on PS Now and beyond but this is garbage.

  • Damn, was hoping for Red Faction II to drop this week but, hopefully next week it will.

  • Escapists 2 looks good. gonna get it for PS4 but sure wish it was cross save and had a vita version.
