The Drop: Week of September 3rd 2012 New Releases

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

On PSN this week, s one of the most praised franchises in the past decade, BioShock introduces gamers into an exciting world filled with fascinating characters, intelligent enemies and complex moral choices that define the foundation of the game world. With its rich story, meticulous attention to visual detail, tense action and infinite replay value, BioShock delivers the perfect blend of storytelling and first person action.

In Zen Pinball 2, players will enjoy cross-platform entitlement and any Zen Pinball 2 purchase will entitle players to both the PS3 and PS Vita versions at no additional charge. Enjoy this week’s The Drop.

PlayStation Network

BioShock — BioShock is a narrative-driven action experience that allows players to do the impossible as they journey through an amazing, immersive and terrifying world. Caught between powerful forces and hunted down by genetically mutated citizens, the player will come to grips with the mysterious and fascinating world of Rapture, a distinct Art Deco underwater utopia gone mad. BioShock not only challenges the players’ capacity to adapt and survive, but brings to question their values and commitment to the inhabitants of Rapture. With smart and adaptive AI, no encounter ever plays out the same, while numerous customization options provide gamers with an experience that adapts to their playing style.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 — Co-developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, Modern Warfare 3 delivers a full assault on gamers’ senses, including an intense single-player campaign that picks up immediately following the events of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and escalates into World War 3, as well as groundbreaking upgrades to the beloved Special Ops like the all-new Survival Mode. Special Ops serves as the perfect springboard to Modern Warfare 3’s re-imagined multiplayer, featuring the series’ trademark visceral gun-on-gun combat, a revamped pointstreak system with the introduction of “Strike Packages,” devastating new modes like “Kill Confirmed” and other gameplay enhancements, new features and a bevy of new weapons, equipment, and perks.

The House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut — It’s survival horror as it’s never been seen before! The House of the Dead: Overkill is a pulp-style take on the classic SEGA light-gun shooter series. The game takes place as Special Agent G — the hero of The House Of The Dead series — is given his first assignment fresh out

of the AMS academy. Teamed up with hard-boiled Detective Washington, they are sent to investigate stories of mysterious disappearances in small-town Louisiana. Little do they know what blood-soaked mutant depravity awaits them in the streets and swamps of Bayou City…

The Extended Cut of The House of the Dead: Overkill presents the game for the first time in full HD with 3D support and PlayStation Move compatibility on the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system.With all seven stages of the original re-mastered and two brand new scenarios added to this gruesome shooter, the ‘baddest’ just got bigger!

Zen Pinball 2 (Also on PS Vita) — The sequel to the popular pinball game by Zen Studios, Zen Pinball 2 features an abundance of exciting new features and updates, making it the premiere pinball platform on PS3 and PS Vita.

PlayStation 2 Classic

Suzuki TT Superbikes: Real Road Racing Championship — Suzuki TT Superbikes features more than 50 vehicles from all over the world, and includes the world famous 37.73 mile Isle of Mann racetrack. For the highest level of realism possible, the course itself has been mapped using data supplied by the government and data captured by the development team. In addition to the traditional racing, the game also features a “Mad Sunday” mode that brings riders from all over the world to test their chops on the mountain. Supplementary modes, such as two-player split-screen and sidecar multiplayer are also included, as are bikes from all classes — from 125cc all the way to the F1 1000ccs!

Slow week.

Haha, you would think the first BioShock would have already been digital by now. Better late than never, at least.

Sevyne said:

September 2nd, 4:13 pm

Really slow week. On the plus side though, Zen Pinball 2! Been waiting for that one.

wtGp said:

September 2nd, 4:19 pm

Zen Pinball 2 is the best news this week. Can’t wait to play it on my vita

alexfranco60 said:

September 2nd, 4:19 pm

I hope mw3 has a decent price… i wouldn’t like to see a $59.99 price for such an old video game

Daniel_the_Jew said:

September 2nd, 4:22 pm

After such an amazing week as last week, you can’t expect every week to be that amazing, otherwise I’d be living out a cardboard box. Regardless, the RE6 demo comes out this week, and that makes a pretty damn good week.

The_Dukenator said:

September 2nd, 4:23 pm

@3 BioShock didn’t come out for PS3 originally.

The_Dukenator said:

September 2nd, 4:24 pm

A good PS2 Classic to add would be Burnout Revenge.

onslaughtree said:

September 2nd, 4:25 pm

To most that dont already know, more ps1 titles have been added for direct Vita download during the week. Notably FFVII, Alundra, Grandia, Klonoa, Oddworld 2, Syphon Filter & Tomba. So If you dont have a ps3 , you can now download them through your Vita from the Vita PSN…. In any case, there have been a few of you that have been spamming for MW3 to be added. Lets see what you guys move onto now. lol. Cant wait for more info on Double Dragon free for plus. A date would be nice.as always,…Keep On Gaming.

Scubafinch said:

September 2nd, 4:25 pm

Zen Pinball 2 on the Vita… certainly my most wanted for the last few months. Excellent!

shogun00 said:

September 2nd, 4:28 pm

I’m really looking forward to Zen Pinball 2.

Superstone said:

September 2nd, 4:29 pm

ZP2 yes!! More PSone classics on the store please. Now work on Vita playing PS2 games!!!!!

retro25 said:

September 2nd, 4:34 pm

Nothing here yet!!!! Is there anyway we can request a PSone and/or PS2 games?

onslaughtree said:

September 2nd, 4:38 pm

@11…That would be great. I lent a friend my copy of Burnout Revenge and you know how it goes…I would get that asap on PSN.

Squiggle55 said:

September 2nd, 4:40 pm

This is a great week if only because of Zen Pinball 2. We also finally get the Rainbow Moon demo, which I’m looking forward to trying.

Also, is anyone else scared of buying Bioshock because they think it will be on PS+ soon?

Hey Rey,
I maybe one of the few that realise but, when is Crackle releasing on PS Vita, it was announced as summer release. And since nothing. I actually suffered my fav show being removed from Crackle without watching after season 1 because I was waiting for the PS Vita app then Samurai X disappeared. But foreal i don’t like this silence especially when no ps3 app was announced and yet released first, tho im happy for it of course. By the way, can you send a request for Neon Alley on PS Vita, Imagine it like a Sony exclusive dub anime channel, I would have alot of friends paying the sub if on Vita, also. And hope Crunchyroll Vita, isn’t going to come last possible moment like youtube and skype :), back to Wild ARMS 2 on PS Vita.

Teflon02 said:

September 2nd, 4:44 pm

by the way, why was the ability to hear notification sounds on Vita, while asleep removed? I loved that and always had skype on for that reason. and also the PS Vita Wifi turning off when you manually put it to sleep is VERY annoying, that needs to stop

DarkPyroZXA said:

September 2nd, 4:45 pm

YEA, CANT WAIT TO GET ME SOME COD:MONEY WASTER 3!!!! yea, i’ll just buy Counter Strike: GO instead, an actual GOOD FPS that costs a fraction of the price of that overpriced expansion pack

September 2nd, 4:51 pm

No Ps1 Classics for the Vita ? Weak drop also how about some new ps1 classics like these the tony hawk series, Driver, gran turismo, twisted metal III plenty of others

CyPhErLoUs said:

September 2nd, 4:53 pm

You guys need to do a Drop on those PSP games on PSN. WTH is it with you guys being so slow?!

If I was head of PlayStation I would bring back the employees from the PS1/mid-late PS2 days and fire the rest of you. They knew how to operate and gain pleased customers!

MrPatrick16 said:

September 2nd, 4:53 pm

I don’t think i played ps2 enough. A lot of these ps2 classics that have been releasing, i have never heard about.


September 2nd, 4:55 pm

I hope someone makes a My Little Pony game for PS3 where you explore equestria.

Ericho316 said:

September 2nd, 5:27 pm

Hmm, nothing to interesting except maybe Zen Pinball, but I already have enough pinball on my PS3/Vita. However it would be cool if they let you use tables from the first Zen pinball on both, then I might think about getting it 2.

magnificent-rich said:

September 2nd, 5:35 pm

Cant wait untilll i dig into borderlands this week

Beast780 said:

September 2nd, 5:39 pm

I already have all the Zen/Marvel Pinball tables so the Plants vs Zombies table for me obviously. Also grabbing the Pinball Arcade pack. I’ve been waiting for new Pinball Arcade tables and Zen Pinball 2 for forever on Vita.

iTofuMan said:

September 2nd, 5:41 pm

Another slow week for the Vita and nothing new for it. seriously cannot wait till we get Ragnarok and Persona so i cqn actually use my Vita for something other than past games, dont get me wrong im enjoying playing psp and ps1 titles, but i would have thought we had at least a majority of our collection by now and in between maybe get more psp and ps1 titles, but seeing how they dont care for the portables, or their costumers i doubt we’ll get that any time soon.

ModSquade said:

September 2nd, 5:41 pm

House of the Dead: Overkill?!?! Oh god yes! That’s a drop that I’ve been waiting ages for!

No word on newer PSX on Vita releases?

Gustauve said:

September 2nd, 5:52 pm

@35 Any zen or marvel table you own will work on zp2 at no extra cost. And zp2 is free!

Jedi_Jeff said:

September 2nd, 5:55 pm

Finally, there’s a demo for Rainbow Moon! Can’t wait to try it out.

Jvhellraiser14 said:

September 2nd, 6:01 pm

kasamatzu said:

macy113 said:

September 2nd, 6:11 pm

@10 Yes it was.

charlesdy said:

September 2nd, 6:23 pm

Every RPG fan should try out rainbow moon. It is a good old school RPG. Not the best but still pretty good.

purse317 said:

September 2nd, 6:39 pm

Sadly most of those older games (Bioshock & HoD) will be overpriced. I can get them for cheap in the store or on the net.

Does Sony consider other competitors prices when add games to psn?

KwietStorm said:

September 2nd, 6:42 pm

I’m guessing the only reason you didn’t mention Armored Kill is because its for premium only this week. GUESSING..

ASC2175 said:

September 2nd, 6:48 pm

Well then, nothing this week, I’m-a buy me some Walking Dead und see what all the fuss is aboot.

onslaughtree said:

September 2nd, 6:48 pm

@42, so what ps1 games are you waiting for on your Vita ? Im curious.


September 2nd, 6:49 pm

@48, just go plus and get it for free along with tons of other games.
You know, that is, if you want to.
