The Drop: Week of June 25th 2012 New Releases

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

On PS3 this week, Spec Ops: The Line unfolds within the destroyed opulence of Dubai. Once the playground for the world’s wealthiest elite, Dubai has fallen victim to a series of cataclysmic sandstorms. The very sand that blankets the city plays a marquee role in altering combat situations and serves as a powerful but unpredictable force that will both help and hinder players throughout the course of the game.

On PSN, bundled or sold separately. Relive or experience for the first time the exclusive blockbuster adventures of Nathan Drake  in UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune and UNCHARTED: Among Thieves as digital downloads. Enjoy this week’s The Drop.

PlayStation 3

Spec Ops: The Line — While most people have fled the now-barren wasteland before the sandstorms swept through, U.S. Army Colonel John Konrad and his loyal squad remained behind to protect those incapable of escape. Unable to reach anyone in Dubai after the storm hit, the U.S. Army feared Konrad and his team dead until they picked up a weak distress signal and launched a rescue operation. As U.S. Army Captain Martin Walker, you and your elite Delta Force team are sent to infiltrate the treacherous region to bring Konrad home. Players will experience “The Line”, that razor’s edge known only to men who deal in war. It is the line they cross when death and duty become one and the same. It is the end — of self and sanity — when their duty is done and only they remain.

The Amazing Spiderman — The web-crawler returns in this Spider-Man adventure based on the Amazing Spider-Man motion picture. Created as an epilogue story occurring entirely after the events of the movie, the game features the return of free-roaming web-slinging all over the city and evolutionary improvements to navigation and combat, as the newly anointed Spider-Man is plunged into an all-new storyline charged with protecting Manhattan from a variety of criminals.

PlayStation Network

UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune — A 400-year-old clue in the coffin of Sir Francis Drake sets a modern-day fortune hunter on an exploration for the fabled treasure of El Dorado, leading to the discovery of a forgotten island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The search turns deadly when Nathan Drake becomes stranded on the island and hunted by mercenaries. Outnumbered and outgunned, Drake and his companions must fight to survive as they begin to unravel the terrible secrets hidden on the Island.

UNCHARTED: Among Thieves — Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is the story of Nathan Drake, a fortune-hunter with a shady reputation and an even shadier past who is lured back into the treacherous world of thieves and mercenary treasure-seekers. The tenth game by premier PlayStation 3 developer Naughty Dog, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves allows players to take control of Drake and embark on a journey that will push him to his physical, emotional and intellectual limits to discover the real truth behind the lost fleet of Marco Polo and the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala.

Order Up! — Welcome to Kung Fusion! Whip up your favorite pseudo-arguably-Asian-inspired dishes and meet the new waiter Harry in Order Up!!, the exciting follow-up to the hit game that lets you run your own restaurant. The Playstation 3 version is built to give PlayStation Move owners added access to this crazy game (standard controllers are of course also supported, and the orders come in just as fast either way!) The game also features split-screen cooperative and turn-based competitive multi-player, as well as new gameplay features, new high-res visuals and lighting, a new restaurant (complete with new food and a ninja waiter!), and much more for players to discover.

Resident Evil Chronicles: The HD Collection — Capcom brings both Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles to PlayStation 3 in one terrifying combination for Resident Evil fans.

Umbrella Chronicles takes place from the first person as your characters move through a fully 3D mansion. This action/shooter hybrid reveals the back story behind the fall of the Umbrella Corporation by exploring locations from past Resident Evil 0, 1, 2 and 3 as well as new never-before-seen locations, such as Umbrella’s stronghold.

PS3 Demos

  • LEGO: Batman 2 DC Super Heroes


  • Farm Frenzy Pizza Party

PSone Classic

Disney’s The Little Mermaid II — Everyone’s favorite mermaid is back on the PlayStation in Disney’s The Little Mermaid II. Featuring elements of both Little Mermaid movies, this game finds Ariel and her human friend Melody on a mission to rescue Prince Eric and foil Ursula and Morgana’s nefarious plot. Along the way, you’ll have to find your way to Atlantica saving it from Ursula, conduct Sebastian’s Orchestra, and escape from the castle. Recapturing the Trident from Morgana and searching for clues to your identity are also on the agenda. Everything unfolds with the help of over 30 minutes of footage from the movie. If you’re a fan of The Little Mermaid or if you’re just a casual Disney observer, you’ll flap your fin with joy for Disney’s The Little Mermaid II.

So we are not given any reason why RE Chronicles was pulled from the drop

No worries, it’s an easy mistake. I understand The Little Mermaid II is easily confused with Suikoden II.

Maybe next time.

You guys are forgetting about playstation 2 games come on Sony, its about time you give us our ps2 games and I highly consider adding star wars battlefront 2, one of my all time favourite shooters please reply back on what you think.

Yeah! Spec Ops! I’ll be deploying to Dubai tomorrow with Captain Walker and his team. My guess is that Konrad is alive somewhere, somehow and that all our paths will cross sooner or later.(or later in the game at least). I just hope that he hasn’t gone insane like Colonel Kurtz in the movie Apocalypse Now.

The old armymen games on psone should be in the psone classics section on the playstation store. Why? Because they’re as fun as they are classic, and it’s “REAL COMBAT. PLASTIC MEN”.

You obviously don’t know about Battlefield 3 then, they got the new DLC (Close Quarters) 3 weeks early. One week early for regular BF players, and then for premium they got it 2 weeks before it came out on PS3. I’m sure that even this wasn’t the FIRST thing Sony has gotten before XBox.

Haha Little Mermaid II guys! Thanks for the LEGO Batman 2 demo tho…

A liscenced Disney game and not anything like Medievil II? Really Sony? I realize you’re a business and getting some Disney will help keep all the gears a-turnin’, but could you maybe sapce these out a bit or at least pair them up with some better PSone classics? Keep the average level of quality of these older games that you choose to upload a little more consistent is all I’m saying.

Yeah, we can’t have Dawnguard, but we can at least play The Little Mermaid 2..

Seriously though.. why doesn’t Playstation fight for us..? Every time something awesome like Dawnguard comes around, we have to wait while Xbox gamers get it first. I am getting really sick of waiting extra time for something we should have NOW! You would think that at least once in a while.. Sony would stand up and say “No, we’re bring this to our customers first.. and that is that.”

But, it never happens.

But hey, I guess look on the bright side.. at least we do get games that the WII has had for 4 years.

Anyway, how about winning one for the HOME team Sony.. If only once a year?
