The Drop

An iconic video game hero receives a herculean upgrade this week in the world of PlayStation. Legendary adventurer Lara Croft returns in Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, which launches Tuesday on PS4.

Originally released on PS3 last year, this reboot showcased the breathtaking and brutal origin story of a gaming great. But the team at Crystal Dynamics wasn’t satisfied with its already critically-acclaimed project. The developers doubled back and addressed every detail, making huge technical overhauls to take advantage of PS4’s hardware. The result? A visually stunning adventure, all displayed in native 1080p and running at a silky smooth framerate.

For a complete list of the new releases, read on, and enjoy the Drop!

Am I the only one amused by PS4 – it’s not about better graphics, it’s about the whole gaming experience, it’s about gameplay, it’s about…blah, blah, blah…

And the first thing to happen with an “upgrade” to PS4…better graphics and …nothing else.

The definitive version of Tomb Raider should have been… here’s some actual tomb raiding for the game and guess what, we listened to the fans and dumped the crappy, pointless MP. Maybe even some single player DLC? People would have paid for that.

Though I actually did enjoy the single player experience on PS3.

+ viceforce on January 26th, 2014 at 2:28 pm said:

I as well as many people wish that they discount Tomb Raider for those that brought it on PS3 digitally. I spent 20 on the game digitally due to the Flash Sale that was in April 2012 that made the game half off and the free 10 bucks that random psn users were getting. So would be going 80 if I were to pay to play the game on PS4 but I’m not going to do that. If Sony does another flash sale and strips Lara *cough* I mean a flash sale on the game then they have my money.

I’ll get this for PS4 since I passed on the PS3 version. It does look amazing I watched gameplay via Ustream etc.

I’m still on the fence to get this game again… Although, this was my GOTY… I might get it again… Looks beautiful!

Lego MOVIE, The Last of Us DLC, inFamous, Lightning Returns, Outlast, Stider, Thief… Maybe I’ll get Tomb waiting for these titles in February :)

Sony ask Capcom if they will bring Resident Evil 4 Ultimate HD Edition to PS4 with 1080p and 60fps.

I will buy it again for the 5th time. I had it for the gamecube,wii,ps2,ps3 and hopefully PS4.


62

+ Ry-Dog on January 26th, 2014 at 3:38 pm said:

If Cyber Sled is coming out as a PSone classic, I hope Pac-Man World will come onto the Playstation Store here as well in the near future.

Mark Davis Pro Bass Challenge, a decent fishing game that’s not as good as SEGA Bass Fishing. When is Haunting Ground and Sonic Heroes coming out as PS2 classics. those games have been ESRB rated for over a year.

Resident Evil 4 for PS4

Lets all hope and pray that there wont be a Definitive version of The Last Of Us.

+ Rezznak on January 26th, 2014 at 4:00 pm said:

Let’s not. I would buy Last of Us PS4 in a heartbeat. Why Resident Evil 4? If you have it for all those systems why are you against Last of Us on PS4?

yay, PSbore was released and so now they give us a bunch of PSX and PS2 games on our PS3! I’m so glad they released the PSbore, I’m enjoying my PS3 so much more! now I got some more oldskool games to enjoy until the steam machines release!

steam machine and my PS3, making quite the team.

anyway, PS+ just expired a few days ago, hopefully there’ll be some discounts announced tomorrow that convince me to renew.

For awhile i was seriously considering buying tr: de but now i wont until the price drops to $40. So for me i am picking up dbz but i fear it wont be as great as people are saying. It will have a story unlike raging blast 2 so kudos for that.


72

+ Dangisuckatgamin on January 26th, 2014 at 4:52 pm said:

I would rather not have classics, but that’s just me.
The drop is rather sparse yet again, Tomb Raider just looks like a big old copy of Uncharted (And if u say “No it doesn’t” than you haven’t watched livestreams on PS4… )
Otherwise I’m happy with what I got right now for PS4 I suppose, just recently re-bought Injustice (so I could have a fighting game to hold me over till more PS4-made stuff comes)

May get Infamous in March, we’ll see.

i think Capcom should do remake of Resident Evil 2 for PS4 with 1080p and 60fps


75

+ Strangeheaven on January 26th, 2014 at 6:12 pm said:

@Rezznak

Well Resident Evil 4 is in my top 5 games of all time you see. Unfortunatley for The Last Of Us doesn’t make it in my top 20. Looking forward to The Evil Within.

+ Strangeheaven on January 26th, 2014 at 6:17 pm said:

@hawjboi2009

I would like to see remake of Resident Evil 2 aswell.


77

+ hawjboi2009 on January 26th, 2014 at 6:17 pm said:

@Strangeheaven, i don’t think Capcom should re-release Resident Evil 4 again for ps4 because graphic will look same from gamecube/ps2 graphic version with 1080p and 60fps, i think Capcom should do remake of Resident Evil 2 for ps4 with 1080p and 60fps will have very decent sales


78

+ Strangeheaven on January 26th, 2014 at 6:28 pm said:

@hawjboi2009

I don’t mean a full remake of Resident Evil 4, I mean the pc ultimate hd edition that’s coming out next month.

Tomb Raider Digital and DBZ Vita please.

Was interested in getting Battle of Z on ps3 but the reviews on the game have been pretty mediocre. I can’t justify paying $60 on it when i didn’t ‘love’ the demo to be honest.

I’m not even 80% of the way through ‘The Last of Us’ and I’d still have to put this game in my top 10 all-time. The story, the tension, the characters, the graphics and the sound are all amazing. What else do you expect from Naughty Dog though. Can’t wait to see Uncharted 4 and what they can do with PS4 tech. Tomb Raider is sort of tempting given the fact I skipped it on PS3.

+ xBuTcHeRx on January 27th, 2014 at 1:09 am said:

I’d definitely double-dip for Tomb Raider on PS4 but NOT for a FULL retail price of $60 just for prettier graphics, that’s just an insult to gamers’ wallet around the world. It’s more insulting when they are re-releasing the game’s GOTY for ONLY $30 on PS3! People be smart and don’t let $quare Enix take advantage of your wallet. you get the same experience on the PS3 version minus being more pretty for half the price. IMO

They should offer a $10.00 digital download for us PS4 people that bought the PS3 version last year. Although a great game, I just don’t see the point in spending full price again if you already own a copy.

If you don’t like the price tag for Tomb Raider DE because you have the PS3 version then don’t get it, nobody put a gun to your head saying buy it on PS3. I’ll be getting it since I was smart enough to wait.
