The Drop: Week of August 16, 2010 New Releases

If you have a secret personal collection of Cabbage Patch Dolls and Care Bears, does PlayStation have a treat for you! The Kylosian & Segramites people invite you on an adventure on your PSP, as you adventure through seven distinct worlds. Also, you’ll be able to hunt dinosaurs this week. Wait, what?


Only PlayStation can make Kylosians, Care Bears and Psychopaths make sense in one sentence when we reveal this week’s new releases. Strap on your Sony Walkmans and join me on this week’s The Drop.

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days

PlayStation 3

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days With a new visual style inspired by documentary films, you play as the self-medicated psychopath Lynch in the sequel to the 2007 Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. The psychotic duo find themselves in Shanghai’s dark under-belly fighting the criminal underworld and corrupt police forces, while they fight to keep their sanity in check. You can download the demo now on PSN.

Toy Story 3 Hybrid Premium Edition Pixar delivers the original Toy Story film in high definition while packing in Toy Story 3: The Game, all on one single Blu-Ray disc. Emperor Zurg is my personal favorite villain, and having him as an exclusive playable character on PS3 in Toy Box mode gives me a perfect excuse to don my black cape and conduct my symphony of villainy.

PlayStation Network: Top Gun

PlayStation Network

Top Gun — Jack Epps, Jr., the original Top Gun screenwriter, maintains the attitude of the classic 1980s pop-culture film when he returned to write the Top Gun video game. Dodge missiles and return enemy gunfire while piloting your F-14 Tomcat to the sweet nostalgia of “Danger Zone.” Senior Game Designer for Doublesix, Ollie Barder will be on the blog tomorrow with more details. Stay tuned.

Tom Clancy’s HAWX 2 Demo –There’s an alternative for all your air combat needs. Ubisoft evolves aerial warfare with Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X 2 demo, putting you in the pilot seat of an ultra-sophisticated aircraft. Dominate the skies early when the demo drops on Tuesday.

Joe Danger Demo Not convinced that Joe Danger is a must-have PS3 exclusive? You’re in luck — you can download the free demo Tuesday, and brace yourself for awesome.


PlayStation Portable

Ys: Seven Begin your adventure in Altago City and trek all the way to the Holy Precints of the Wind where the Kylosian people worship the Great Wind Dragon. Sounds pretty epic, huh? That’s because Tom Lipschultz of XSEED Games gave us a one-on-one guided video tour of their ambitious portable title earlier this week. Make sure you ask him about the Segramites, I hear they’re big on lava and brimstone.

PlayStation minis

Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunters This new PlayStation mini from Tatem Games is redefining big game hunting by letting players explore huge non-linear locations as they attempt to track down a variety of dinosaurs. But if you’re not careful, the hunter can become the hunted! The full game includes 15 dinosaurs across five environments including pine forests, muddy marshes and rolling hills.

    Yes, we’ll have the devs of Under Siege on the blog pretty soon. I hear they’re working on some great RTS and PS Move support features.

OnesOwnGrief said:

August 15th, 4:32 pm

Yep, now I am sure we will start seeing more Blu-ray releases packed with the game as well. This is definitely a nice start for a good game.

OnesOwnGrief said:

August 15th, 4:33 pm

gold5225 said:

Fluidshine said:

Yeah I can’t wait to hear more about Under Siege! I don’t usually play those kinds of games but it looks like a really cool real time strategy game.

Silvercube said:

August 15th, 5:38 pm

Is the Toy Story 3 Hybrid Premium game available in stores? I can’t seem to find it online anywhere.

Chuckbait said:

August 15th, 5:54 pm

I’m interested in what the Playstation Move mini games will be in Toy Story 3. Yey e yey.

jelly_bean said:

Take a look at Best Buy’s site:'s+Edition+Bundle+-+PlayStation+3/1094535.p?id=1218220378567&skuId=1094535&st=toy%20story%203

Release date will be August, 17th… I will buy it for me also… Great deal for US$ 64,99 ;)

Silvercube, sorry for mispelling your nick name :)

jelly_bean said:

August 15th, 6:10 pm

Hi Rey,
I’m not sure if you can help but is there any way that the team can investigate all these much related issues after Firmware update 3.41? URLS: (, There have been very similar reports of hundreds having this same issue after we (yes, including me) updated to the latest firmware update. Where BDs, DVDs or Games do not play, skip, freeze or return error code: 80029906 (and nope can’t blame the discs because at least BD movies work perfectly fine on BD Movie player) I will much appreciate if you take this into consideration and forward to the appropriate teams so that this issue can be investigated further, I refuse to believe there is a problem with the Bluray drive when it was working perfectly fine hours before this update or that it casually happened to me when the same reports can be found in the forums above.
Please let me know if there are any questions you may contact me directly through my PSN account (POTOCUS) I’ll much appreciate your prompt attention to this matter.

Cyb3rfr34k-iso said:

Top Gun, how much $? :)

Sancho45 said:

August 15th, 7:42 pm

I’ll have to pick up the Toy Story Hybrid some time before too long. And thats so savage that Carnivores is coming out as a mini. I had that game on PC years ago. I wonder if you will be able to use the same cheat codes to get all the guns and be able to fly and run super fast.

megalodonshark said:

August 15th, 7:45 pm

what about the psone classics period? here we sit playing hit and miss all year long waiting for classics games, and i get the feeling sony does not want to really try very hard at all.
sony itself has tons of 1st party games they did themselves back in the day, and yet we see hide nor hair of them, what really gives guys?

Deak1124 said:

August 15th, 8:07 pm

Rey, where in the world are gaming’s most notorious criminals, Kane & Lynch? Dog Days is easily this week’s biggest retail release.

I get it, they are too crazy to make The Drop.

I’m glad a Joe Danger Demo is finally happening. I heard it’s good, but want to make sure before purchasing.

    Deak1124, you’re right! Just added it in. Thanks for the heads up. Kane and Lynch 2 was moved up a week early.

retro25 said:

August 15th, 8:13 pm

What, no Psone classics this week? Awwww maaan!!!!(looking forward to Ridge Racer and/or Gex 2)

Bearsharktopus said:

August 15th, 8:14 pm

no Vagrant Story? :(

OneFate said:

August 15th, 8:52 pm

Carnivores huh? Awesome. Sounds like a port of Carnivores 2, right? I like the sound of porting old PC games to the Playstation Store as minis. Maybe we’ll get Descent next. I’ll cross my fingers.

GJD21 said:

August 15th, 8:55 pm

Why doesn’t Sony just give us the schedule for the next month, instead of this BS

phinnv8 said:

August 15th, 8:56 pm

Where is Castle Crashers?

TorgoTime said:

August 15th, 9:06 pm

I can’t find info about this Toy Story Hybrid anywhere and this is the first time I’ve heard of it

TheHakku said:

August 15th, 9:23 pm

It’d be really awesome if they got the rights to include the classic NES Top Gun as some sort of bonus unlockable. :]

BlazeKush420 said:

August 15th, 9:37 pm

I hope for that new Zen Pinball table on Tuesday. =)
If not im going to be pissed. Been waiting for the next one since Mars.

valley428 said:

August 15th, 10:01 pm

Top gun looks pretty cool

jacob-813 said:

August 15th, 10:27 pm

If the top gun on the ps3 is anything like top gun on my iPod, it’s a must get. I just had my bday on the 13th so I am finally able to buy stuff again. Yea!

WhiteF8ng said:

August 15th, 11:03 pm

obviously the dino game is made for PSP. No way that had PS3 in mind looking the way it does…

TreverUndeadXpdX said:

August 15th, 11:57 pm

Destiny89 said:

August 16th, 1:08 am

im glad that a demo is coming for Joe Danger. i have the game since day one but im glad to see a demo coming up because more people will try it out and because i remember before the game releases the company said that once the game is successful they’ll make a demo. really glad it did well :). Joe Danger, Flower and DeathSpank are few examples of how PSN has amazing games

zombie9 said:

August 16th, 5:57 am

Uncharted 2 multi player skins also!!!!

JongJungBu said:

August 16th, 6:41 am

It’s too bad Ys Seven releases tomorrow. I still haven’t beat DQ9!

GT-420 said:

August 16th, 6:54 am

Why is PLUS not included in these announcement?

GT-420 said:

August 16th, 7:42 am

I forgot + is now bi-weekly. Will the next Drop include PLUS announcements?

brianace said:

August 16th, 8:15 am

If you don’t like Joe Danger, I hate you.

megachevpro said:
