Forged in Helghan steel! The Drop this week delivers one the most anticipated PS3 titles of the year with Killzone 3. Take on the ruthless Helghast army, armed with your PlayStation Move and 3D glasses and make your way off of the Helghan planet. Make sure to get your last minute reserves in for the Killzone 3 Helghast Edition.

Take on the role of space pirate Grayson Hunt along-side your cyborg partner Ishi Sato in Bulletstorm, as you kill with skill and wreck havoc among meat-eating plants, criminals and feral mutant tribes among the ruins of planet Stygia.

You’ve asked for it loud and clear in the comments every week (deep breath in), I’m eager to announce that Xenogears finally arrives on PSN for PSone this Tuesday. Also, Alien Breed 3 and a quadruple collection of PS minis make their PlayStation debut. Not as handsome as a Helghast Sniper named Vladimir, check out this week’s The Drop.

PS3: Killzone 3

PlayStation 3

Killzone 3 (PlayStation Move & 3D Enabled) – Continuing from Killzone 2, players find Emperor Visari, the vicious dictator of the Helghast, dead at the feet of Sev and Rico. However this war is far from won. In the wake of Visari’s death, Helghan has devolved into a world of political scheming, ruthless infighting, and murder.

Now, the two most powerful men on Helghan are fighting for complete and utter dominance while Visari’s vision of Helghan is in jeopardy. With limited supplies and no re-enforcements, the ISA must now fight not to win a war, but to survive a lost one. (Read All Killzone 3 Coverage: Here)

Bulletstorm – Bulletstorm brings new furor to first-person shooter action thanks to its signature ‘kill with skill’ gameplay. The game tells the story of a futuristic confederation protected by an elite band of mercenaries: Dead Echo. When Dead Echo members Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato learn they’ve been working for the wrong side, they’re betrayed by their commander and exiled to the far reaches of the galaxy.

In Bulletstorm, Grayson and Ishi find themselves surrounded by hordes of mutants and flesh eating gangs in an abandoned paradise. They have two objectives: get off the planet alive, and exact revenge on the man who sent them there. (Read All Bulletstorm Coverage: Here)

Knights Contract – In a time of swordsmen and magic, Knights Contract follows the twisted tale of Heinrich, an immortal executioner, and Gretchen, a resurrected witch. Once the victim of Heinrich’s blade by the order of the game’s antagonist, Dr. Faust, Gretchen now has him under her control as the two must work together to rid the land of the supernatural foes who are cursing its people with the black spell of death.

if i may make a suggestion regarding “the drop”. perhaps having this directly listed in the playstation store as a section would be great. it does get very confusing when “new” items are lumped in sections with older items which have not been “new” for months.

it would make more sense to keep an organized listing within the store so that everyone knows what is new and what is not new when searching the myriad of titles within.
