Rey Gutierrez's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

PSN dominates this week’s releases on PlayStation with full PS3 digital downloads of Spec Ops: The Line, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, Sonic Generations and Ferrari Racing Legends. Take on the ultimate challenge with our supernatural anti-heroine, in her most personal battle yet with Bloodrayne 2 as a PlayStation 2 classic.

Enjoy this week’s The Drop.

PlayStation Network

Spec Ops: The Line — 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 city’s ultramodern architecture lies half-buried under millions of tons of sand. 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.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 — The world’s number one selling golf video game franchise returns with an array of exciting new features, including an original feature that gives you the opportunity to experience first-hand Tiger’s golf legacy! Relive Tiger Woods’ most memorable golf moments from child prodigy to golfing legend! Also, through unique online and social features, create your own country club, and use coins earned through game play or team up with country club members to play exclusive golf courses.

Sonic Generations — Celebrate 20 years of Sonic with Sonic Generations! Delivering the definitive gaming experience for Sonic fans old and new, Sonic Generations sees Sonic the Hedgehog playable as both the much loved classic 1991 character, and the modern day video game hero he has become in this exciting new fast paced adventure.

The Adventures of Tintin — The Adventures of Tintin: The Game is an action-packed adventure that takes gamers on a nonstop journey through the world of Tintin; the hero and intrepid reporter from Herge’s original comic books. Players will rediscover the movie’s enchanting environs including Captain Archibald Haddock’s ship the Karaboudjan, Omar Ben Salaad’s Palace and the exotic city of Bagghar and experience many of Tintin’s exciting adventures.

Brave — Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands. Brave tells one such tale, one of the courageous Merida, who confronted tradition and challenged destiny to change her fate. Inspired by the Disney/Pixar animated fantasy movie, Brave invites players to run, jump and battle their way through the rugged landscape of mythical and mysterious Scotland. By using wits and bravery, players are able to wield a sword and bow to defeat fierce enemies, break a magical curse and save a kingdom.

Dungeon Twister — In a fantastic and steampunk world dominated by magic and machines, a powerful mage has captured random adventurers during his travels, and thrown them into his mechanical maze. He is cruel and deceitful, and bored to death. For amusement, he watches his prisoners fight their way through his infernal mechanical maze, the Dungeon Twister.

Ferrari Racing Legends — Race some of the sexiest cars ever made in this Ferrari-licensed entry in the famed Test Drive racing franchise. Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends brings over 70 years of the world’s most recognizable performance cars to gamers. Developed by world-class developer Slightly Mad Studios, Ferrari Racing Legends explores the legacy of Ferrari Racing. It recreates Ferrari’s most beloved and coveted performance racers, from today’s latest models to the legendary vehicles that have dominated racing history.

Bellator: MMA Onslaught! — Tape up for a fight to the title in Bellator: MMA Onslaught! Designed specifically to emphasize the organization’s philosophy that, “Title shots are earned, not given,” this game lets players go toe to toe with some of the top Bellator fighters as they compete in authentic Bellator events. Fight for the title shot through eight-fighter elimination tournaments within your weight class. In-depth customization systems let you design your fighter from his technique style and move set down to his tattoos and look, while a robust leveling system replicates the path of a fighter with class and experience gained through matches both offline and online.

PlayStation 2 Classic

Bloodrayne 2 — Born from the unnatural union of vampire and human, BloodRayne is blessed with the powers of a vampire but cursed with the unquenchable thirst for blood and a weakness to sunlight. BloodRayne 2 challenges the supernatural anti-heroine with her most personal battle yet as she hunts down each of her wicked siblings who are carrying on the legacy of their dead father. Expanding on the predecessor,BloodRayne 2 includes new in-game dynamics such as pole combat, rail sliding and advanced melee fighting with fatality moves. Built upon a modified version of the Infernal Engine, BloodRayne 2 introduces threatening new bosses, all new environments set within a huge modern day city, a range of new supernatural powers and new motion-captured movements complete with soft-body physics.

Alphabetizing the games within your folders would be great! I really wish you could chose what image your folder is using instead of the image used being the last game you added to the folder.

Yes! Yes! Yes! I’m so excited for Sonic Generations. I can finally shelve my disc copy.

As for imports, there’s not much. There’s a huge amount of re-releases in Japan, but in terms of new stuff it’s slim pickings. PS3 will be getting Max Anarchy, PSP will be getting Toriko: Gourmet Survival 2, and Vita will be getting Dokuro.

I dont want to be that guy but why is there such a lack of support for vita?? I mean i didnt spend over 300 dollars on a vita just to look at it.. Dont get me wrong i love it but ive just about bought every vita game that im interested in. The game i bought a vita for is little big planet which i have pre ordered and paid off. You will take my money yet you cant even tell us when it is coming out?

@ PRIMUS_420

in all honesty i dont get it either. whats even more sad is the fact that other regions (mainly Japan and Europe) are actually doing something about it. granted i kinda understand Japan reasons. its where the Vita was made and all, that still doesnt change the fact that those regions are actually support the system with only words of promises in the US market. Japan is taking the PS+ content to another level while including Vita titles now (and how they continue to support ps+ with psp/ps1 titles/deals/sales) and Europe just got a bunch of Vita titles on sale, which i doubt we will get any time soon.

All im saying is Sony (at least in the US region) has and probably never will take their portable systems seriously. just like how the Psp was the Vita will more than likely follow suit. dont get me wrong i loved my psp and Vita, but its sad to see people actually supporting Sony for their lack of information, support for their system and have to keep making excuses for some reason, when they should be asking for answers to help sony know we want this system to be the best.

@ KING-ACE-34 – Activision recently closed Radical Entertainment which I believe developed Jackie Chan’s Stunt Master. Activision = pure evil

Of the three major game companies, Sony shows that they care most about their fans. Microsoft just wants you to be a faceless statistic who buys every piece of garbage they release like Kinect. They don’t want you to have options it seems. Sony has the Move, but they don’t try to make it seem like you must have it. Upon hearing that the 360 successor will have a new version of Kinect, I almost threw up in my mouth a little. That’s not what gamers want. Gamers want GAMES. From the first moment I saw Kinect I knew it would only gimp a game experience rather than expand it. Even the Move has some pretty awesome experiences like Pixeljunk 4am, Datura, Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves. I can only imagine how utterly unresponsive/impossible it would be to play those with Kinect. That’s my rant for today. You can nitpick Sony about ps1 classics, ps2, alphabetizing, but that’s small time compared to the flaws of the other systems.

I think it’s a little early to start selling vitas… the game list really isn’t that bad, I like a pretty good number of them but don’t expect every single one of them to be to my taste. PSP games have actually been trickling in over time, they just don’t post them on the update overview for some reason.

Thanks for the Drop! Rey, looking forward to the new update

@15 – What utter twaddle. Vita has plenty of great games, certainly more than 3DS (which I also own but rarely touch). Yes, it could benefit from the features you mentions (more interested in PS2 compatibility than PS1) but there’s enough to occupy anyone while they sort it.

I’d like to see more Gravity Rush, I’m loving the DLC. I was really looking forward to Lego Batman 2 on Vita until I heard that it was the duff 3DS version… Just waiting on

@38 KwietStorm … TENCHU +1 … I want to play that game again so bad. My PS one as given up on me so that would be the ultimate solution to play it again!
