Rey Gutierrez's Avatar + Posted by Rey Gutierrez on Jun 03, 2012 // Senior Social Media Specialist

On Blu-ray for PS3, Inversion is a third-person co-op shooter that combines hard-hitting, adrenaline-pumping action with a revolutionary gravity manipulation engine. Featuring the Grappler weapon, players will be able to manipulate gravity for their own purposes.

On PSN, Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown contains a full overhaul of Virtua Fighter 5′s mechanics, balance and animations, along with new game modes, new dynamic fighting arenas, a massive collection of customizable character items and new characters.

PlayStation 3

Inversion – Set in the near future, the tranquil peace enjoyed by mankind shatters with an unforeseen invasion by an unknown enemy called the Lutadore. Armed to the teeth with futuristic gravity-controlling weapons, the Lutadore easily overrun the city’s defenses. Unbeknownst to all, mysterious anomalies have surfaced in conjunction with the invasion. Random regions in the city have entered zero gravity or have suffered vector changes, throwing the world into topsy-turvy chaos. Assuming the role of Davis Russel, a hotheaded 28-year-old cop, or Leo Delgado, Davis’ neighbor, players will embark on a journey through the disorienting war-ravaged, gravity twisted streets of their home town and beyond, to find Davis’ missing child.

PlayStation Network

Virtua Fighter 5 Showdown: Complete Edition – The fifth entry in SEGA’s advanced, realistic fighting game series. Once again, the realtime level of visual detail and character animation has been upped to the most advanced levels, with next-generation lighting and detail on the fighters and environments. Players will be able to customize their characters by selecting from various patterned costumes and a wide range of attachable items that can be placed onto each fighter’s various body parts. Players will not only achieve victory by defeating highly-skilled opponents, but will also compete for prizes and earn in-game money through the match to buy many items at an in-game shop.

Bang Bang Racing – Bang Bang Racing is an arcade-style racing game focused not only on the speed but also on the technical driving skills. The intuitive control system and the exciting tracks provide endless fun for everyone in the family.

This racer delivers fast-paced racing around every corner and down every straight. Drive high-speed, pumped-up racing cars through cones, tires and exploding barrels! Be one step ahead of your competitors, finding shortcuts, repairing your car in the pitlane, and dominating your opponents from the top-down view.

Madagascar 3: The Video Game – Madagascar 3: The Video Game, players must help Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, and Melman the Giraffe find a way home while working for a traveling circus. In single or two player co-op mode, players will travel across Europe to promote the circus by completing challenging and zany missions given by the Penguins, performing amazing publicity stunts on some of Europe’s most notable landmarks, and dazzling the crowd with fun circus acts fit only for a Madagascar-style circus extravaganza! All the Madagascar friends are along for the ride in this comedic circus adventure including King Julien, Maurice and Mort, the chimps Phil and Mason, the Penguins, plus their new circus pals Stefano the sea lion, Vitaly the Siberian tiger and Gia the jaguar.

I’m guessing they’re holding off on announcing the rest of this week’s updates….since a lot of the trailers/videos will be related to E3 and the new unannounced games from tomorrow’s press conference.

Rather lacking update. I assume that there will be some shocking suprises from the E3 show to pop up to provide our content?

Also, I know that it has been said that PSOne Classics will be playable on the Vita (soon?), but when (or will) PS2 Classics be made available?

Looking forward to the E3 suprises!

Hey!
To all the people whining about The Walking Dead Episode 2:

Do you see it on XBLA?
Do you see it on PC?

Oh you DON’T!?

Then obviously you’ll be wanting to direct your !!!!!!!!!’s and ??????’s toward Telltale, not Sony.

Go to their website and QQ there.

@11 The June PS+ preview was held off to co-incide with Sony’s mega E3 announcement that it is getting a re-vamp.

As far as I understand, Kaz & Co. are planning to throw so much content at Plus subscribers it will be irresistable not to sign up.

+ Vortuminius on June 3rd, 2012 at 5:29 pm said:

Guys, before you get all OMG why does this update suck or where is our PS+ update! :O

It is E3 week people… I heard a rumor that PlayStation Plus is getting an overhaul, to be announced tomorrow at E3 if it is true, I heard that Battlefield Premium may release tomorrow, but DLC isn’t listed on The Drop articles.

So in short, just wait it out for a day, something will happen, and it will be sweet. But also, you can’t blame a weak update week on Sony… like come on, if a developer doesn’t release a game, you can’t publish it on the PlayStation store, or any other digital marketplace for that matter.

@21, sensible post. +1

@ all concerned about the The Walking Dead Ep. 2: TT hasn’t decieded when it will be released. There aren’t any exclusive partnerships w/ the 360 or the PC version, therefore when they get it- so will we.

Hyped about E3! Can’t wait…

+ NASCAR_Rcn8 on June 3rd, 2012 at 5:40 pm said:

That’s it? Um WHAT? I see nothing worth wild this week in this drop. Better be some good plus stuff this week. Oh and start giving us plus members multiple choices on games that are free when you put up a game free that we already bought months ago. Us that already have the game you give for free juts gives us no value to the plus membership we are paying for. Its not our fault we bought the game already but others get it free and we get nothing in exchange for buying that game already before. We should have other choices to pick another game for free at the same value then its only fair us that already has the game you give out free still get a game for free as well and not miss out on a free game.

+ xaos on June 3rd, 2012 at 5:42 pm said:

If past experience is any guide, yes there will be more content this week. Can’t blame ‘em for not wanting to bury the lead by spilling all the beans before the press conference :)

+ DoTheKiller91 on June 3rd, 2012 at 5:45 pm said:

I wonder if a new Syphon Filter will be revealed at E3… Hmm… They released NFS Most Wanted (PS2 Classic) and the next NFS is called Most Wanted, from Criterion games. Syphon Filter Omega Strain was also released at the same time as Most Wanted (the PS2 Classic), could this also hint for a new SF game? That would be epic!


27

+ NASCAR_Rcn8 on June 3rd, 2012 at 5:45 pm said:

Above what I’m trying to say is how is our plus membership a extra cool membership when some of us buy on psn a lot and say a whole month the games you give the plus members free we already own. If that is the case then why do we pay that month for the plus membership if what we are paying to get free we already own and then get nothing on top of that but a plus fee. We gained nothing from plus then. You at the sony psn team need to think about this cause if you guys are always going to give us free games we already own then why keep plus you know. We should have multiple choice picks of other games when we own the game you are giving to plus members for free you know. THAT’S ONLY FAIR! Otherwise credit us a month of plus since we don’t get anything when that happens.


28

+ NASCAR_Rcn8 on June 3rd, 2012 at 5:49 pm said:

Oh and before I get trolled by someone saying why do I care I’m not a plus member um yes I am its just I am a plus member on my main psn account not this one. My main PLUS account won’t let me post comments ob here so I have to make bogus psn accounts just to comment on here. The sony team never will reply to me why my main SLICK _ T account won’t ever post a comment on here. All my other psn accounts the comments go straight through no moderation needed.

@27
I know you have a bunch of posts, but I’m referring to this one directly. When signing up for PlayStation Plus, you get whatever they give you for free. That is the deal, you GET free stuff and benefits every month. Crediting you with a month just because *you* didn’t like something is absurd. That is self-entitlement man, very uncool.


32

+ NASCAR_Rcn8 on June 3rd, 2012 at 6:05 pm said:

@ Vort what in the world are talking about this self entitlement crap huh. Get a free month of plus cause I didn’t like something? WHAT? I said when they give us games free a whole month that we already OWN the games already and we get nothing FREE that whole month and we have no other multiple choice of another game of the same value for free then why in the hell are we paying for plus that month. The system is wacked and needs overhauled. For those of us that already own the dang game they are giving for free we need a multiple choice of other games of the same vaule as the free game to choose from so its fair across the board. How is that saying I should get a free month because I don’t like what they gave for free man? Explain that to me fanboy? I pay for plus to get free content man. When the content is what I already own and I get nothing but you other plus members that never payed for that game get it free then what am I paying for huh? Its not about NOT liking something its about not getting nothing cause I already payed for it.

It’s like saying you buy a membership to a video store that gives you 4 random free movies a month to digitally add to a cloud database and you can access those movies as much as you want as long as you stay a member. Keep in mind this store also sells digital movies as well on their cloud storage and lets say you have a 3 month membership you already payed for and in a whole month they give out 4 movies you already bought from then and its in their database you already bought those movies from them and the free ones don’t matter and you get nothing free that whole month that you payed for a free movie service. Then they say OH WELL I guess you miss out you already paid for them. That would be messed up. The right thing to do is give people that own the movies already multiple choice of other movies to pick from incase you already own it. Same goes for ps PLUS that’s the way it should be otherwise why are we paying for the membership if we already own all the free games?

@32
That is EXACTLY what I’m talking about. Just because you already own a game offered in PS+, that doesn’t entitle you to an extra month or anything. That is HOW PS+ RUNS. PS+ had a number of games I already owned but were offered up as free. Oh well, tough luck, that’s part of the deal. You accept that by using PlayStation Plus. Besides, how on earth is Sony supposed to know what you have and what you don’t? Last month, they offered you free RELEASE DATE PSN games. Two in fact! So please, don’t argue that they aren’t at least offering you something for your PS+ subscription.

However, they are supposedly overhauling PS+ anyway, so your wish just may come true, watch their E3 conference tomorrow.

@massimodo..l as always on here. If I say anything and someone try’s to disagree you always back them lol. Never seems to amaze me lol. You guys are bone heads arguing with me over my truth logic. I’m speaking put for all of us plus members that are getting screwed out of free games when we already had bought them. So why argue that? Makes no sense its like you guys kiss sony’s butt so much you are blind to getting screwed over money in a membership you are 80% of the time not benefiting from at all and others that NEVER buy games on psn benefit from.


39

+ NASCAR_Rcn8 on June 3rd, 2012 at 6:26 pm said:

Wow someone is messing with post cause all my typo’s lol. Whatever…. You all that argue are just kids anyways you don’t understand what losing money is and not getting most of your plus membership of plus half the time. I guess what I will start doing is just never buying psn games again and just sit back and get free ones from plus and the developers lose sells from psn. Sounds good to me. That’s the way to benefit from plus I guess.

+ Vortuminius on June 3rd, 2012 at 6:30 pm said:

@38
Ok, let me try to explain PlayStation Plus for you OK? Sony just can’t make any old game free on the PSN. Based on small details in some of their posts, the games that end up free on PS+ are agreed upon with Sony and the publishers and/or developers. That means, no, they can’t just give you another option for a free game, that doesn’t work.

Secondly, nobody is getting screwed over in a membership, you pay $4 or $6 a month for discounts and free games of their choosing, as well as getting beta access on certain games when they come around, and the automatic update feature. Nobody is getting screwed over, and if you don’t like it, simply don’t buy it. It’s that simple. Getting screwed over would be like Sony cutting ALL benefits to PS+ at random and not refunding, that doesn’t happen.


41

+ Vortuminius on June 3rd, 2012 at 6:33 pm said:

Also, stop calling people kids just because they disagree with your “truth logic.” Honestly, based on what you’ve mentioned, you personally should just simply NOT have a single account on PS+ because it clearly isn’t giving you benefits that you enjoy.

You knew what the deal was before you signed up.

All kids constantly argue and start this Sony is perfect grap and make everything a stupid console war. Get over it man. If you enjoy getting ripped off then go for it but if you don’t agree with me fine but don;t try to act like you schooling me son in info. I’ve been with plus since day one so just go back to those studies at school and shut up with trying to act all special on here defending sony on everything wrong all the time. They can’t fix or learn from their mistakes cause people like you defend them up down sideways 24/7 when someone points a flaw out that they are doing. Just mind your own business man.

If you are referring to me, I am 19 year old Junior who attends SUNY Oswego, majoring Graphic Design, minoring Computer Science with a 3.23 GPA. I am a camp counselor for a 4-H Camp as the director of Archery. But no, go ahead and keep calling out people because they simply disagree with you. Very very mature of you.

This is called a discussion, I’m defending Sony because *I* believe they are doing absolutely nothing wrong. No company is perfect, and you really can’t expect a company to be perfect. PlayStation Plus isn’t perfect, and while what you said would be nice, it just can’t happen for the reasons I mentioned in post 40.

You sir, have the last word, I’ve made my points, the community can decide for themselves on who they want to believe in.

But that’s another debate for another area on the internet lmao. We don’t care what your GPA is man. I bet your I.Q is below 2 when it comes to common sense. If tech vanished tomorrow I bet you would have a nervous break down and wouldn’t know where to start.
