Rey Gutierrez's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time marks the franchise’s biggest and most ambitious game yet with completely re-designed characters, worlds two times the size of those in previous Sly games, more vibrant and dense environments, and real-world physics allowing for a realistic gameplay experience. Staying true to the franchise’s signature gameplay style of blending stealth, thievery, exploration, and combat, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will take players on a thrilling journey around the world filled with epic boss battles, action-packed missions, engaging puzzle elements, new stealth moves and much more for both the PS3 and PS Vita.

Dead Space 3 is a third-person shooter with survival-horror gameplay elements that challenges players to work singly, or with a friend to stop the viral/monster Necromorph outbreak. The game features the return of franchise hero, Isaac Clarke and the necessity of his weapons making abilities and precision skill in using them against in order to defeat enemies. Other game features include, drop-in/out co-op support, the additional character John Carver, evolved Necromorph enemies, a new cover system, side missions, and more. Enjoy this week’s The Drop.

Dead Space 3

Dead Space 3 brings Isaac Clarke and merciless soldier John Carver on a journey across space to discover the source of the Necromorph outbreak. Crash-landed on the frozen planet of Tau Volantis, Isaac must comb the harsh environment for raw materials and scavenged parts. He will then put his engineering skills to the ultimate test to create and customise weapons and survival tools. The ice planet holds the key to ending the Necromorph plague forever, but first Isaac must overcome avalanches, treacherous ice-climbs, and the violent wilderness. Facing deadlier evolved enemies and the brutal elements, Isaac can choose to team up, not only for his own survival, but for that of mankind’s. Play together with a friend or go it alone as Isaac Clarke using the seamless new drop in, drop out co-op functionality. Each mode offers unique story elements and gameplay.

Here Comes The Boom — Former collegiate wrestler Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a 42-year-old, apathetic high school teacher.

I originally wanted to buy Thieves in Time on PSN, but ended up pre-ordering a Blu-Ray copy at a local retailer because I wanted the pre-order bonuses. Will there be a way for us to get those bonuses if we buy it through the Playstation Store?

Guimace said:

February 3rd, 1:54 pm

I like Sly. Bentley’s minigame should be fun. Also, Fist of the North Star 2 (I think this one isn’t getting a disc version?)! Cool week, now gotta wait on info on sales and PS Plus.

GrandSwamperMan said:

February 3rd, 1:56 pm

Is it that much of a hassle to list each week’s new DLC in the Drop as well?

guyminsberghe said:

February 3rd, 1:57 pm

Nothing for me this week too! It’s been a while I didn’ buy something for my vita… I’m waiting for a price drop of gravity rush… and maybe some new ps1 imports…

mercado320 said:

Firelogic said:

February 3rd, 2:00 pm

@+ Ikaros19

The trophy list is shared so no double platinums. Confirmed during IGN’s livestream with the developer.

ShatokaMTN said:

February 3rd, 2:03 pm

Fist of the North Star 2 is out? I didn’t even realize we’d reached it’s release date yet.

Do want!

spudsudz said:

February 3rd, 2:04 pm

I am hoping to get the Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault for the Vita on Tuesday… Keeping fingers crossed…

RidleysBox said:

February 3rd, 2:07 pm


Kingdom Hearts HD is being released March 14 in Japan, so in what multiverse do you think they will bring the PS2 classic to the PSN store, when they are already releasing a remake?

passivefamiliar said:

February 3rd, 2:12 pm

No search function for download list yet? Also, the EU store has a sale on all finalfantasy games…i hope we are getting it. Last time it happened i didn’t jump on it, and ive been putting off buying a couple classics until another sale. Mostly because i won’t play them much not for moneys sake.

Sadly not to happy with the new sly. It is really well done, really stuck to the way the other games were. It just didnt click for me. Might pick it up when its on sale, but im in no rush. Same with dead space. Unless the co-op ends up being awesome. Not a bad drop though. Still waiting on a few older aditions. Give me FFX, kingdom hearts, orphen scion of sorcery, and megaman x. My credit card bill will take a hit but i will buy all that. (I understand how it works, not ranting just voicing desires. Except about the search/filter for my download list. Why sony? Why no filter at least?)

unbornsoldier said:

musicman182 said:

February 3rd, 2:22 pm

As much as I would love to get Sly, I don’t think I can support cross-buy until you guys give some answers about Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault Vita. I don’t care if it’s been delayed…it would just be nice to know, since you know…I did buy the product and all.

Superstone said:

February 3rd, 2:31 pm

Where is Ratchet and Clank FFA? And new PSone classics?

Dr_letzshake said:

February 3rd, 2:41 pm

Barborah_FL said:

February 3rd, 2:53 pm

I am still not sure, but if i will take something, it will be the sly.. :)

CStancer said:

February 3rd, 3:01 pm

So still no word or mention of RATCHET & CLANK: FULL FRONTAL ASSAULT…. Anyone else do a search of tin giant and get an article from this blog stating end of January they will release vita version….

saskamazon said:

February 3rd, 4:01 pm

really excited for Sly … the store called yesterday to remind me of my preorder – HA, as if I would have forgotten … it looks & plays beautifully on the Vita. & yes, they have a shared trophy list, unlike All Stars … that was a trophy bonanza !

hope to hear something in reference to R & C FFA Vita soon …. pretty quiet on that front. looking fwd. to the All Stars DLC mid month … :-)
