The Drop: Week of February 25th 2013 New Releases

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.

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: The speed of light is 670,616,629 mph that comes out to 186,000 miles per second… WOW that’s FAST!!!!

  • dragon_night

    WHAT? NO KINGDOM HEARTS? I was pretty sure this would be the week!! I even told my mom about it.

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

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

  • @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!!!!!

  • WHAT! NO KINGDOM HEARTS! Not shocking!

    FUN FACT: SE IS WORKING ON A REMAKE. DON’T EXPECT A PS2 CLASSIC OF IT EVER.

    It’s nice to see the rest of Persona 2 here, I don’t have to pay $100 to buy it off ebay now.

  • TerraAshura

    I love how dragon_night’s gone funny with this all of a sudden.

    On a more serious note, Persona 2?! PS1 Classic?! YES PLEASE!

  • What happened to Terraria I thought it was supposed out February and why do never answer anyone posts anymore?

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Whoa is that the full Uncharted 3 multiplayer? That’s sweet!

  • VanguardFate

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

  • #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

    At least we’ll get the GOW Ascension demo this week

  • 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?

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

  • SweetReLeaf

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

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

  • GRIM__REAFER

    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

    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

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

  • GET2DAACHOPPAAAA

    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?

  • GET2DAACHOPPAAAA

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

  • GET2DAACHOPPAAAA

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

  • KazeEternal

    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?

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

  • 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.

  • @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

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

  • karate_chop_fuey

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

  • VanguardFate

    @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.

  • what new add ons comeing out put that up sometime

  • Hokage_45678

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

  • GRIM__REAFER

    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.

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

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

  • Darth-Krayt

    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

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

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

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

  • 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

  • @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.

  • @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!)?

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

  • paulbvarela

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

  • Pedro408sanjose

    @1 Nice Job! good one!

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

  • MilitaryDragon

    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

  • Where is Dynasty Warriors 7 Empire!

    sony u should maybe add DW2,DW3 on ps2 classic! ill be buyer day 1!

  • nightwiger5

    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

  • @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.

  • 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
