The Drop: Week of February 25th 2013 New Releases

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

The rumor going around Sumaru City is that if you call your own cell phone number, you will speak to the Joker, who will assassinate the person of your choice… and rumors in Sumaru City have a funny way of coming true. On assignment with hip youth magazine Coolest, daring young reporter Maya Amano stumbles onto the Joker’s trail at Seven Sisters High School.

A convergence of fate brings Maya, her roommate, and a police detective together in pursuit of the maniacal assassin. Will they awaken the power within before it’s too late to stop the evil forces behind him?

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment comes to PSone classics on PSN. Enjoy this week The Drop.

Mud Fim Motocross: World Championship — Motocross is an off-road discipline that combines many key factors of sports such as passion, emotions, skills, thrills and adrenaline, offering an exclusive mix of excitement, glamour and fervid competition. These elements, together with all the real tracks and riders, will be part of the official videogame. Straights, corners, jumps, slides: there is nothing smooth about Motocross but riders are there to shape it up. The ending is always a surprise. This is why bike enthusiasts get excited, and this is why gamers will love the videogame.


  • God of War: Ascension “Prisoner of the Damned”
  • Knytt Underground (PS Vita)

PSone Classic

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment — A demonic trickster called The Joker has cursed Sumaru City, home to the Seven Sisters High School. His curse has the ability to turn rumor into fact, which causes all sorts of trouble. Gradually gruesome murders fill the land the school’s principal happens to be one of the victims and all sorts of monsters and demons begin showing up. Maya Amano, a cub reporter for a popular teen magazine is on the case, and she’s determined to get to the bottom of things.

Maya and her party set out on an engaging RPG adventure filled with fun twists. There are huge, hulking monsters than can be outwitted and scared off rather than outfought, and an innovative rumor system that can trigger events that will create entirely new story arcs and let you get your hands on valuable objects. Sprinkled throughout the game are 80 personal summons, or magic spells. You’ll meet stronger and more powerful foes the higher your levels of magic grow, until in the end it’s down to you and the Joker.

Fun Fact: In every episode of Seinfeld there is a Superman somewhere.

P.S. -Next week i have something to announce.

February 24th, 4:05 pm

@dragon_night pretending that there was gonna be Kingdom hearts every week is not funny any more. as a matter of fact you’re killing the game by doing that. i love the kingdom hearts series, but what you’re doing is simply and and flat out STUPID. I realize you’re a big fan but please SHUT UP!!!!!

IIL0YDII said:

February 24th, 4:06 pm

Thank god you’ve heard us first time with DORA titles,and added some more,I personaly think this is best that ever happened to PSN, also Uncharted 3 MP for FREE? Why would I want to buy another Uncharted title if you give it MP for free?

Vira-Lorr said:

February 24th, 4:07 pm

Dragon_night just want the attention he doesn’t listen to when people tell him square enix has to decide if they want to release it most of us been telling him that past weeks.

tiny_tim31 said:

February 24th, 4:07 pm

VanguardFate said:

February 24th, 4:08 pm

WHAT? PERSONA 2? And I was waiting to see what to buy with the free $10 I got on PSN.


February 24th, 4:09 pm

#6 yes i was very displeased to see that there was no terraria i was playing it on pc a few mins ago but hate mouse and keyboard give me the game with a ps3 controller

novoalucard said:

February 24th, 4:13 pm

fisheye11 said:

February 24th, 4:13 pm

so no terraria this month huh? might just buy it on PC to get my feet wet. i also thought a starwars pinball table was supposed to be released by zen studios. is that going to be DLC for zen pinball 2 or will it be a stand alone game?

mrhalford said:

February 24th, 4:13 pm

Dora???? Really??? What idiot is deciding what PS2 games to release? How about some games the users care about!!

SweetReLeaf said:

February 24th, 4:14 pm

U3 multi-player free to play? i don’t get it… sooo.. wait huh lol

Naritubr said:

February 24th, 4:15 pm

When Metal Gear Rising will be released on psn?!..=(


February 24th, 4:17 pm

You guys need to stop with the Kingdom Hearts and just wait till it happens. You’ll get keep getting disappointed.
Eventually you’ll start crying then go mad. Move on and it’ll come when you least expect it.

fattytwenty said:

February 24th, 4:17 pm

Sweet, UC3 MP for free is awesome.
So no purchase on the PSN will transfer over to the PS4? What about the PS+ subscribers, and there subs?

SoraNeroSerrah said:

February 24th, 4:17 pm

Please explain to all of us why we should bUy anything else just to hAVE IT BE NON TRANSFERABLE IN OCTOBER?


February 24th, 4:18 pm

Will any of our downloads from PSN work on PS4? Or any of our previous purchases? On PS4 will we be able to view our downloads list?


February 24th, 4:19 pm

@19 Exactly! What is the point of buying anything is none of this stuff will work in October?


February 24th, 4:20 pm

Or whenever the PS4 comes out…maybe not October..

KazeEternal said:

February 24th, 4:20 pm

Gotta run out and buy Dora *rolls eyes* Can we please get something like Dirge of Cerberus or perhaps actually relevant PS2 games on the store?

IIL0YDII said:

February 24th, 4:23 pm

NO! You must buy all DORA titles! These are best selling PS2 classics EVAR!

moecage said:

February 24th, 4:23 pm

I have been playing the God of War: Ascension demo using the code we got for beating TROJANS at rise of the warrior.I really can’t wait for the game to come out,this would be a great time to have atime machine so i can just go forward and get it.i was hoping you give us info on Diablo 3 for ps3.

komentra said:

February 24th, 4:26 pm

@19 – Because you can play it on your PS3 (or with some your Vita too). It’s not as if when the PS4 releases your PS3 is going to cease to function and explode.

eggmiester28 said:

February 24th, 4:29 pm

yay a new ps1 classic and a pretty good game at that

karate_chop_fuey said:

February 24th, 4:29 pm

Persona 2 EP on the PS1? Screw that, tell Atlus to localize the PSP version.

VanguardFate said:

February 24th, 4:30 pm

@19. Everyone isn’t planning to buy a PS4 day one and throw their PS3 in the trash. Hell, I still have a PS2, which I play semi-regularly.

I wouldn’t be against PS4 being backwards compatible though.

shakie8470 said:

February 24th, 4:30 pm

what new add ons comeing out put that up sometime

Hokage_45678 said:

February 24th, 4:31 pm

I thank you for the F2P Uncharted 3 Multiplayer. I can finally Platinum the game!!


February 24th, 4:34 pm

All jokes aside, you guys act like PS3 is going to be dead once PS4 is out. THey just stopped with PS2 end of last year. They continued making games for ps1 when ps2 came out and ps2 games when 3 came out. Plus they will still be a huge population that will continue to play PS3 after the launch of PS4.

Why would we through away our ps3 anyway? I’m not going to be one of those people who cry about how they wish they had this game and that game still and oh I wish I still had my PS3 cause I loved this game and it was my favorite.

Fedast said:

February 24th, 4:35 pm

“Dora’s Big Birthday Adventure”? Really? Sony should change the section “PlayStation 2 Classics” to “PlayStation 2 Games”.

el_casual said:

February 24th, 4:35 pm

I knew it, when Sony Announce the PS4, they dont support the Vita for a long time.

Darth-Krayt said:

February 24th, 4:38 pm

For people upset about no “hardware” backwards compatibility, I was upset about it as well until I realised, there’s going to be alot of new PS4 content coming out for the platform, and probably right from the launch. I’m expecting a HUGE launch line-up of big name games including GTA5.

My point is, for us PS3 gamers who’ve spent quite a bit of digital money on our PS3s and want to move on to PS4 as well, it’s alot better for us to just keep out PS3’s to be able to play all that content when we want to go back to it……..and understand that if we are just willing to do that, Sony doesn’t have to spend the money to integrate PS3 hardware into PS4, which may mean Sony can get that PS4 hardware’s launch price down to like $450, instead of the $600 the original PS3 had to be to have that last gen hardware inside.

We already KNOW that we don’t want $600 consoles. So maybe it’s not so wise to sit there demanding one on PlayStation’s Blog. Think it through.

WilHiteWarrior said:

February 24th, 4:38 pm

What about Dynasty Warriors 7: Empires? Wasn’t it supposed to be released this week?

Rainwater said:

February 24th, 4:43 pm

Why Dora games when there are so many other PS2 games that haven’t been released on PSN? Are the Dora games any good?

soulzonik said:

February 24th, 4:44 pm

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus (Vita) isn’t going to be out this week as well?

Edzo04ps said:

February 24th, 4:46 pm

atlus really should of localized the psp version of persona 2 ep but i guess thats better than nothing. wish we got the same love japan does

IIL0YDII said:

February 24th, 4:47 pm

@Rainwater DORA titles is the best titles that ps2 could offer, accept it and be grateful, because if not DORA, it could be some bad title like Kingdom Hearts.

Tjoeb123 said:

February 24th, 4:48 pm

@9 Who’s that on your Avatar (and what game/series)?

@35 So what do we do when Sony pulls the plug on PSN support for the PS3 (Not likely going to happen, but it could!)?

Mist_Shark said:

February 24th, 4:49 pm

Will we be seeing Tomba 2 on psn here in the U.S. anytime soon?

paulbvarela said:

February 24th, 4:49 pm

this cant be the real drop. something wacky is going on with the wording and format. this really cant be the drop

Pedro408sanjose said:

February 24th, 4:49 pm

@1 Nice Job! good one!

StingrayX said:

February 24th, 4:49 pm

Still wondering what I am going to buy with my free $10. =D. Thanks you guys!

MilitaryDragon said:

February 24th, 4:50 pm

weak drop, also when will their be updates on the PS4? Its bad enough the games from PS3 (disk and PSN) dont work but we would like to know something more

Astuma73 said:

February 24th, 4:51 pm

nightwiger5 said:

February 24th, 4:53 pm

uh… who is buying the dora the explorer, any one else remeber the day that 6 ish dora and deigo games come out. is any one buying these

ExHaseo said:

February 24th, 4:54 pm

@35 Playstation has already confirmed that they can transfer over everything and make it playable through Playstation Cloud.
As stated in an article on destructiod, they just don’t know if they’re going to or not. Honestly, if they decide not to, then I’m not getting a PS4.

Also, it’s nice to see Persona 2 up, but it’s still a pretty weak update this week. Only 1 real game? No, Dora doesn’t count.

dragoduval said:

February 24th, 4:54 pm

Dynasty Warrior 7 : Empire is coming this week right ? O and for those who said that the old Dynasty Warrior should be added…. i Second it :D
