The Drop: New PlayStation Releases for March 4th, 2014

Ryan Clements's Avatar Posted by Senior Specialist, SIEA Social Media

The Drop

The night is dark, and the howls of the undead fill the air like a despairing fog. As you survey abandoned streets, wrecked cars littering the sidewalks, you hear the ghouls approach. They nip at your heels and scratch as you pass. They swell around you, and you turn to face them with a pounding heart. Luckily, you’re armed. You empty clip after clip into the mass of rotting bodies. Congratulations! You just earned a high score.

Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition is coming to PS4, and it’s bringing back the cult-classic PS3 shooter with new features and upgraded visuals. Grab a friend and fight through the throngs of undead in adrenaline-pumping firefights for high scores and survival.

Not a zombie fan? The hotly-anticipated South Park: The Stick of Truth is also headed to PlayStation this week. Experience a hilarious RPG written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and journey on an epic quest to become “cool.”

For a complete list of games and demos coming to PlayStation this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

Can’t wait to play Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition! It looks like tons of fun. Beyond!

More excited for Awesomenauts Assemble! than I am for Dead Nation. PS4 is quickly becoming a dumping ground for everything zombie, and it’s not cool. It’s making for a really slow start to software offerings.

When will final fantasy x/x2 hd come to the PlayStation store for preorder?

ABTBenjamins said:

Actually meant everything horror, not zombie.

Demo for that NASCAR game? Special PS Plus price? Can’t wait to see what’s in store for Monday.

Being a vita owner I am a ‘lil disappointed that some of the titles listed are not available for the vita. Dead Nation, and South Park would port nicely to the vita. Why aren’t they? I don’t think South Park or Dead Nation require gobs of processing power to make this happen. I suspect it’s to push people to buy a PS4. Booo!

Looking forward to the mobile companion for Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition, but when will iPad get playstation app support? iPhone seems bit too small to me.

Lefoul-123 said:

When are we going to get the MLBTV app for PS4?

Mando44646 said:

March 2nd, 12:18 pm

Miku looks interesting on Vita and PS3 has some good stuff here. I wish South Park would at least be ported to current gen consoles, I want to play it on my PS4, not PS3 :/

gearhead32 said:

March 2nd, 12:19 pm

Good drop.I am looking forward to playing Dead Nqtion on the PS4.

gearhead32 said:

hi Ryan Clement, nice blog.. dead nation is nice game for ps4.. i might play it again.. i want play South Park more than anything else but the problem is i don’t have ps3 anymore.. it died last two month ago.. it is 3 years old.. i agree with Mando44646.. that really shame if south park is not for ps4 too beside ps3.. ughhhh

BattleSkard said:

March 2nd, 12:23 pm

Looking forward to Dead Nation. Great Month for games. ETA on PS4 Avatars?

RaxGhost said:

March 2nd, 12:23 pm

Sony, please put these PSP titles to PS Vita’s store:

– Ace Combat: Skies of Deception
– Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
– Final Fantasy
– Final Fantasy II
– Silent Hill: Origins
– Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
– Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops
– Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact(and any other Naruto titles for PSP)
– Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice

P.S: Before anyone will throw an attempt to tell me to use PS3 I will tell this for the last time: I don’t have PS3. And many Vita owners can tell you the same thing.

P.P.S: Still waiting for MGS1 with story mode!

Where’s Tomb Raider? Wasn’t that supposed to be free for PS+ this month?

Dangisuckatgamin said:

March 2nd, 12:25 pm

First PS3 game purchase since getting my ps4, South Park! (Which was Jan 20th so over a month)
Can’t wait for the co-op action of Dead Nation for ps4 too! Love Coop games! Keep those coming! (Online coop though.. local is pointless these days)

Dangisuckatgamin said:

March 2nd, 12:25 pm

@37
Remmy this is NEW GAMES dropping, not the PS+ post.

Dangisuckatgamin said:

March 2nd, 12:27 pm

@26
You’ve had PLENTY of free Vita games for plus come out, those weren’t good enough? Spoiled much?
The PS4 is 40x better than your little handheld device too by the way, that’s why they are pushing for the better system.

neuropunk said:

March 2nd, 12:30 pm

South Park = GOTY

and way better than generic crappy “games” like The Last of Us. Hooray, South Park isn’t a linear hallway corridor QTE simulator!

PZDugna said:

March 2nd, 12:30 pm

Sweet Project Diva f demo for Vita can use that to practice while I wait for my check :D

Remmy8199 said:

March 2nd, 12:35 pm

@39 I know that. I only got PS+ like a month ago, so I’m not too familiar on how it works. .

So ready for hours of south park

Xanzar said:

March 2nd, 12:56 pm

@40 how can you even compare two platforms that are in two completely different target areas, not to mention that the vita is a companion to the ps4, sure the ps4 has tons of processing power and a marque of potential but you shouldn’t down play the vita just because you believe it to be inferior. Sure it lacks the processing power that the ps4 has but that doesn’t mean that it lacks a library of killer games, also not to be forgotten is the fact that the vita specializes in portability something that unfortunately without a hardware mod of great degree the ps4 would not be able to achieve , not without the help of the vita. So now i want to know why it is that you believe a system designed for portability rather than home usage would ever be inferior to its stationary counterpart. The two are not the same , they don’t exactly have the same audience, don’t you ever forget that when you look at the console market.
