The Drop: Week of September 19th 2011 New Releases (UPDATED)

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

UPDATE: This post incorrectly identified the release of two PSone Classics, Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger. These titles will not be releasing on PSN at this time. We sincerely regret the error.

The Drop is teeming with PlayStation greatness on all fronts, with titles arriving on PS3, PSP, PSN, PS Move, PS minis and PSone Classics.

Two of Square Enix’s critically acclaimed, PSone fan-favorites arrive on PSN. Former Raccoon City police officer Leon Kennedy dons a new HD uniform in Resident Evil 4. Summon your Persona in the first day of school at Seven Sisters High School on your PSP. Deck yourself in every shade of purple when you take on the Ultor Corporation and rival gangs in Saints Row 2 for digital download on PS3.

There is magnitude of gaming to be had on the last week of summer. Enjoy the megaton that is The Drop.

PlayStation 3


Supremacy MMA — Supremacy MMA brings the brutality of unsanctioned and unlicensed MMA fighting to the bigtime, favoring fast-and-furious gameplay and underground aesthetics over official branding and television-style presentation. The game aims to raise the bar in the MMA space by bringing an unprecedented level of fast, fluid combat, intuitive controls and true-to-the-sport brutality.

PlayStation Portable

Persona 2: Innocent Sin (Also on PSN) — The story takes place in Sumaru City, Japan, population 1,280,000. Its protagonist attends Seven Sisters High School (“Sevens” for short), whose emblem is considered a status symbol even amongst students from other schools. Soon, though, a rumor that Sevens’ emblem was actually cursed, and that wearing it would disfigure one’s face, had spread around the city. Even worse, the rumor came true. And it was only the beginning of a string of rumors becoming reality, one after another. Before long, the protagonists discover the power to summon another side of them called “Personas,” which they use to investigate the strange incidents around the city, all while facing their own personal demons as well. Time is once again on the march…

PlayStation Network

Saints Row 2 — Saints Row 2 takes place a few years after the original. Several new upstart gangs have been able to sweep in and make their mark on Stilwater. At the same time, a multi-national conglomerate known as the Ultor Corporation has become a pivotal player in city politics, pumping millions of dollars into rebuilding the metropolis.

As leader of the Saints, you’ll have to do whatever it takes to protect the members of your gang from new enemies, including the Ultor Corporation and rival gangs.

Resident Evil 4 — The HD version of Resident Evil 4 comes to the PS3, featuring improved visuals that will enhance the player’s gaming experience. Six years have passed since Raccoon City was destroyed and the government has dismantled the Umbrella Corporation from the inside-out. But the terror is not over. Now a U.S. Agent, former Raccoon Police Officer Leon Kennedy has been dispatched on a mission to Europe to save the President’s daughter from a “crazed organization” that bares a striking behavioral resemblance to creatures found in the Arklay Mountains. Is there a connection between these foes and the horrible nightmares from the past?

Burnout Crash (Demo Available) — Burnout Crash packs countless hours of reckless chaos into an easy to pick up, but difficult to master gameplay experience. There are three explosive game modes available across 18 crash junctions in six unique locations, each requiring different skills and strategies to maximize damage and destroy everything in sight. With a variety of player vehicles to unlock, high-value targets to seek and destroy, and crazy surprise features to discover, players will be hooked on an adrenaline-fueled rampage to the top of the Crashwall.

Cubixx HD (Demo Available) — Use your laser to cut away the surfaces of a mysterious cube and free the energy within. Cutting longer lines and crossing multiple cube surfaces gives you bigger combos, but at far greater risk. Can you brave this hazardous environment and complete all 20 levels? Old-school, high score-chasing gameplay with a modern twist. Do you have what it takes to top the high score table and become number one?

Altered Beast — Destroy all enemies to rescue the fair maiden. Your powers increase when you destroy certain enemies and take their energy; once you achieve a certain energy level, you can alter your shape into that of a beast!

Bolt — In Disney’s Bolt, players take on the heroic personas of the TV star dog, Bolt, and his owner, Penny, from the high-action television series featured within the film. As Bolt, players can use his superpowers, including laser vision and his superbark, which sends out a sonic blast to devastate opponents, and as Penny, players utilize stealth, hacking skills and a wheelbar, inspired by her scooter seen in the movie, to outwit enemies.


  • Edge — Develop your telekinetic strength by pushing a Cube within a geometric universe. Platforms, enigmas and reflexes combine to make Edge a rich and very comprehensive game.

PSone Classic

Chrono Trigger — Living in the seemingly peaceful kingdom of Guardia in 1000 A.D., the child Crono was chosen by guardian spirits to save the world from ultimate devastation. Though Doomsday will not happen until the year 1999, the ancient seeds of destruction were planted long ago the the evil LAVOS. Your mission in the world of Chrono Trigger is to travel back and forth through time to change the course of history, and stop LAVOS from succeeding in his dark plan. On your journey, you will battle monsters and meet many helpful people in both the past and the future. Some will become your faithful and powerful companions, while others will give you clues by telling you stories.
Final Fantasy VI — With Edgar’s tools, Terra’s magic, Sabin’s fists and the skills of a dozen additional characters, the Returners need only your help to seize victory from the Empire. Summon the power of the espers, magical creatures enslaved by the Empire.

i lived many years in flushing meadows and i am actually a yankees fan myself, another genius..

so what wagon did you jump on darvey? what team do you root for? the yankees also? so you are from new york? or are you just a follower of teams who are likely to win..

and yes i will now stop typing because i make you come here and watch,lmao.. too funny..

seems like you have a certain agenda on here, maybe to “appear” like support 4 capt darin?

September 20th, 1:20 pm

Sucks about FF6 and Chrono being wrong, but where is everything else? What day does PSN update? I thought it was Tuesday, but there is nothing up yet. Not even the demo for Burnout Crash is up, although the game is supposed to be released today, but I can’t find the demo of the game. (I’m in US, by the way)


September 20th, 1:23 pm

and a company is “more secure” after a hack.. and you do believe this?
well captain darin maybe you should go and become a computer programmer as well as the many other talents you have exhibited.. the phillies would not know what to do against the yankees , red sox or proven winner in the world series, besides choke


September 20th, 1:27 pm

btw, you want to talk about boston sports? well celtics/patriots/sox and bruins have done pretty well as of lately, wouidnt you say? 76’ers / flyers (oh yeah, what happened to them) and eagles.. well i can understand your greif and heart ache and i hope that a few sports teams in your state do win eventually in more than just one sport.. i do.. its awesome when it happens, especially all FOUR

September 20th, 1:40 pm

dear bostonjohn32 i know what i wrote and its about releasing the game early, my tvs are sony,my sterio is sony even my computer is sony like i said this time we were not considered knowin how many people are waiting, mistakes happen. so go and wait for this update like i am and everybody has there own oppinions.and to captaindarin79 re4 the worst resident evil really what have u even played resident evil 4 wow now that comment takes the cake please shut up.bostonjohn were redsox need to hold on i would love them to beat the yankees:)


September 20th, 1:41 pm


also waiting for update, captain darin claims that 4-8 or 5-8 ids the sched time for updates w/ the store, he may be a non-employed rep for playstation and seems to know more than anyone here, including that people who play ps1 classics are the “wrong crowd of gamers” and that res 4 is garbage..

im waiting for res 4 myself, and the nostalgia of playing older games are seen as foolish and or wrong,lol..
well i hope everyone can at least agree on one thing, and that is – every time there is a problem of this nature it is pages full of gamers bickering w/ each other, and i am no better for engaging in such nonsense, but in the end i try and stand up for whats right and support my fellow ps3 gamers when a problem arises, again..

CaptainDarin79 said:

September 20th, 1:43 pm

Ugh come on guys, the store usually updates from 5 to 8..its still early yet…

Also stop hating on Rey. It wasn’t his fault. If you were supposed to deliver a message to someone and the guy who wanted the message delivered gave you the wrong message and didnt realize it until after it was delivered…whos fault is that? you or the guy who gave you the wrong message?


September 20th, 1:49 pm

i had stopped w/ you a long time ago when i came to realize that captain darin is a prime example of .. well you put it best , he takes the cake..

as far as everything else, it was just something that i could not over look, and just admit (to self) that you also were upset today for your own reasons..

the bottom line is that this is not the doings of you nor i nor anyone who plays ps3, it is from sony and those who are tired of the same old bull.. pages full of them, its not just about this incident.. its about many, and its time to change something.. thats all.. nothing more or less.. its a series of events that many do not even pay attention to because “it does not effect them” but when it does then feelings are shared, the same feelings..
i did not disagree w/ what you had said after the fact, it was that maybe you shouldve waited before posting the first post.. we can make mistakes.. we dont charge for services or agreements.. but it does get old when someone who is passionate about ps3 but hating the p.r. dept as well as many mistakes and lies..


September 20th, 1:53 pm

Someone needs to fire Rey and the guy who gave him the message.

CaptainDarin79 said:

September 20th, 1:57 pm

I hardly think anyone needs to be fired over misinformation about two 15 year old overrated games. Sigh…JRPG nerds…they overreact when info about their beloved games is even slightly wrong.

CaptainDarin79 said:

September 20th, 1:58 pm

Games are up btw, might not show in store but if you search resident evil 4 in the search area it shows up. I am downloading it now. 3 gigs…seems a lot for a piece of crap game. Oh well, I do love easy trophies.

NeoPhantome said:

September 20th, 2:01 pm

lol so much fail in this Drop , let’s start counting ….

Seriously this is very disappointing.

CloudBurner1112 said:

September 20th, 2:04 pm

April fools! wait we are in September! i was ready to buy Chrono Trigger & Final Fantasy VI…… oh well.


September 20th, 2:07 pm

oh so you are buying rubbish just for trophies?
well grandpa gamer 69, this captain darin is getting more hypocritical than possible, not only are his comments pure garbage, but he is going to get a game just for easy trophies? well thats funny, you have described the ps1 fans as “wrong crowd of gamers” and had given res 4 a review of crap, but you seek easy trophies and are now buying the game as well..

grandpa gamer 69, this guy takes the freakin trophy, f the cake.. he is a idiot of the purest form..

and btw, i am sorry if i was a bit critical w/ you.. it was just a very few people that were brown nosing self centered people here and many pages of people making it known that they are tired of sonys actions etc.. and in the end you did come to your senses and feel a bit upset so in any event, i did not mean to pick you out of the few, especially when people like captain darin exist

granpa-gamer_69 said:

September 20th, 2:10 pm

your full of crap your not a gamer your a trophy junkie im shore that your paying 10.00 for a crappy game just for the trophies ha ha ha you like the game bottom line


September 20th, 2:13 pm

September 20th, 2:14 pm

Amazing. I rarely see posts that are such complete clusterzucks of incompetence. It’s something of an accomplishment really; like turning a screw-up to 11. Are you sure you don’t want to release Mass Effect 2 today? It’s a great game, really, I’m sure plenty of people would love to play it. Again. And what about Persona 2, are you really sure you want to release that today? You could always delay that a few weeks for kicks, you still have time! :-P

So, since some people were adding funds for the sole purpose of purchasing CT and FFVI, will you be offering refunds? No? Well that’s a shocker right there. I gotta give you credit, that was a masterfully executed bait-and-switch right there. ;)

Oh I know, I know. It was an “accident.” “people make mistakes.”
Um, no. An “accident” would be having a typo or three, this was a complete. and utter. train-wreck.

It was pretty amusing though, so I do have to thank you for that (not even being sarcastic there), so thanks for the entertainment! Better odds having random chance fall in your favor next week!


September 20th, 2:43 pm

@ 421, well said, couldnt agree more

Now I can’t wait for Code Veronica next Tuesday :[
I wish they released both on the same day

Supposedly RE4 has already been realesed,why i cant locate it in the PS STORE????(searched every category,did name search etc..)

NervousScarab said:

September 21st, 5:13 am

This is a real piss off for sure…. in the past few years i have spent a crap ton investing in sony products for my ps3. i have spent thousands on the network and games. i have worked at places like futureshop, EB/gamestop, and Toys R Us selling and promoting PS products in support of all the greatness sony has to offer over crap box and nintendo stuff (great if you have children but not for the hardcore gamers). I have owned 6 ps3 4 psps, over time i have lost some of these consoles without having the chance to deactivate them. and i am on my last activation. me and my family own 2 ps3’s for different rooms. and i can only be active on 1 system at a time. [DELETED] cuz now me and my gf or daughter have to re-buy all the stuff i have purchased under my account all over AGAIN to play together! NOT HAPPENING!!! i think it would be a good idea to be allowed to buy a couple extra activations in case situations like this arise. or have a way of deactivating from customer service. this is just one issue.

NervousScarab said:

September 21st, 5:14 am

Next is why i am really posting here. i loved FF series and Chronotrigger. Seeing the news of them being available was exciting. it raised my faith in sony and their drive to bring the faves to fans. then BAM! no Psyke! fooled YA! we lied. and not give us a corrected date at least! no now we dont even know if they r coming! what the heck is goin on! i think the comment people have made about it being available across seas already and not here are very true. its not even a hard conversion! there are available romz and emuz that have been letting people play these classic faves forever now! Isay when/if they do finally put these onto the network, they should be on sale from day one for at least a week! this is in recognition of YOUR OWN mistake to your supporters. We all rely on you guys here on the blog for good 100% accurate info! after all YOU ARE THE VERY COMPANY WHO RUNS THIS!!!! how do you get your own info wrong! anyways i am done my rant. Stay loyal and lets all get through these dark moments in PS history.

Scarab OUT!!

Chrono Trigger? Nah, have it on DS, but I was stoked for Final Fantasy VI, and it didn’t happen. Guess I still have to bring the GBA SP on trips.

As for Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, who cares? It’s been on the 360 for ages and it’s a turd. It’s not worth getting worked up about it.

As for RE4, as tempting as the $10 price may be, if I know Capcom, both it and Code Veronica Complete will be on a disc in a few months.
