The Drop: Week of May 6th 2013 New Releases

Rey Gutierrez's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

Terror returns with Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly as PlayStation 2 Classic on PSN. The journey takes you to a whole new setting: an abandoned village, where you play the role of Mio Amakura, a young girl who is gifted with a strong sixth sense and her twin sister Mayu, who notices a crimson butterfly faintly glowing in the sky.

Enjoy this week’s The Drop.

Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly — Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly project started relatively soon after the first project concluded. Since we received lots of feedback that players got too scared to complete the game, we shifted our attention to making the storyline more interesting, to encourage such players to overcome the scariness in wanting to see the end of the story.

Thank you for adding automatic download with purchases made on the online store to the PS3. Unfortunately, the automatic download is only triggered/activated when the PS3 is turned on. If you make the purchase while the PS3 is already on, it will not automatically download the item. You will have to either manually download it or turn the PS3 off and then on again. Can you please change it to allow auto download at anytime? Thanks.

Capcom said that Sony has already approved the code for the PS2 version of Capcom Fighting Evolution (aka Capcom Fighting Jam). When will it be release? Thanks.


May 5th, 4:07 pm

Yes, what’s happening with Capcom fighting Jam and Capcom vs SNK? I am starting to loose patience on these lame drops.

Dragonslayer_023 said:

May 5th, 4:12 pm

VanguardFate said:

May 5th, 4:14 pm

DarkOne_PR said:

May 5th, 4:18 pm

lkenourmos said:

May 5th, 4:21 pm

wow, thats it? No PSN or PS3 games? nothing? Just Fatal Frame 2 and 3 PSOne imports that no one ever heard of?

mmm, I wont complain. at least I will be saving money this week so thats a good thing.

Beyondthegrave07 said:

May 5th, 4:21 pm

@6 yeah I would like to see the .hack games too. Btw, are we ever going to get the dark cloud games and rogue galaxy as PS2 Classics?

loveinspace said:

May 5th, 4:24 pm

Star Ocean for VITA would be awesome.

Ghostwize said:

May 5th, 4:24 pm

Yikes. Once again Rey fails on many levels. C’mon man! No mention whatsoever of one of the biggest Ps3 games ever being released on Tues? DUBBYATEEEFF. It takes a lot to irritate me but I have to say Rey, every week you fail to mention at least one to two things that are being released. And I mean always. You kind of suck at your job when it comes to blog posting lol. I’m sure you do well in all other facets. :P

RedShockerIota said:

May 5th, 4:25 pm

BillyBoiDaPrince said:

May 5th, 4:31 pm

May 5th, 4:34 pm

Fedast said:

May 5th, 4:35 pm

Wow. When the only big news is the re-release of a 10 years old game, you realize that this is one of the worst drops ever.

IIL0YDII said:

May 5th, 4:40 pm

Crash and Spyro for PS Vita!


May 5th, 4:45 pm

i want nightshade ps2 and vita update to play ps2 games if possible plz >_<

Vipa1985 said:

May 5th, 4:49 pm

Agreed with Nirvana8726 would love to see the .Hack series on PSN especially since some of the games are fetching higher prices on Ebay etc nowadays.

Also since it’s partially Sony as well as Level-5 whats happening with Dark Cloud & Dark Cloud 2? Would love to play those 2 games again & the JP store has had the 1st game for a while now..

The_Dukenator said:

May 5th, 4:55 pm

@11 This is just a drop. The real one is the store update on Tuesday

KnifingGrimace said:

May 5th, 4:55 pm

Another one wanting the .hack series to be added, as well. But more importantly, I want the GU series, because it plays so much better and has such a damn good battle system to go along with its great story. I would pay Fifty Bucks if I had to, just to own the 3 GU games on my PS3. God, I’m going through withdrawal.

There’s a fighting game in Japan now, I think? From CyberConnect2? I may honestly have to import that, since it seems as though Namco Bandai has all but given up on the .hack series in the states… which depresses me to no end. :(

KwietStorm said:

May 5th, 5:06 pm

Needs more Hotline Miami.

ZaGe-zAiKaNo said:

May 5th, 5:06 pm


Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle. Releases towards the end of August in Japan, of course.

IzoGray said:

May 5th, 5:10 pm

adding my support to get the .hack games on psn. all of them. would pay full retail for G.U. vita versions

GooieGreen said:

May 5th, 5:11 pm

I came here for the rage over how small this week’s drop would be. I stayed for the .hack// requests.

I regret selling the first game in the series and never picking up 3 and 4. I would love to see those games ported to PlayStation Vita or a new .hack game (the latter of which seems extremely unlikely, especially on Vita).

Anyway, looking forward to the Fuze demo.

wow what a great week :P

May 5th, 5:22 pm

@gohan16ken Become a plus member and the purchases will auto download during the time you set up. Being a member has its advantages. Well worth it.

Nevi901 said:

May 5th, 5:26 pm

Still no Crash or Spyro on Vita, I see.

MechaX45 said:

May 5th, 5:32 pm

>Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly is coming on psn
You guys are going to make me burn a hole in my wallet, I hope we get FF3. :)

SLY12 said:

May 5th, 5:41 pm

Sleeping Dogs is coming on Tuesday.

Kevvik said:

May 5th, 5:45 pm

Very small drop.

That said, seeing as I have asked many times in the past for the Fatal Frame games, I cannot express disappointment in the quality of a drop which includes Fatal Frame II.

Ryumoau said:

May 5th, 5:54 pm

wow….guess its no surprise to have such an awful drop after a week with Blood Dragon and Zombie Tycoon.
Sleeping Dogs is all for me this week. Hope its dlc goes on sale as well.

Jedi_Jeff said:

May 5th, 5:59 pm

I hope Fuse is a fun co-op game. I’ve been waiting for a good 4-player game to come along for quite a while.

sondaniel11 said:

May 5th, 6:08 pm

awesome fatal frame 2 this week is a good news for me xD


May 5th, 6:10 pm

Crash and Spyro games are looong over due for the Vita! What is up with that Sony. EU has them for the Vita, ps3 has them and the PSP has them. Why is NA Vita having to suffer without?

DelMurice said:

May 5th, 6:12 pm

Weak drop. Will check out Fuse demo though. I hope PS+ has an interesting line-up in tomorrow’s announcement. My PS+ expired and I’m on the fence about subscribing again.

duke301 said:

May 5th, 6:13 pm

There isn’t really enough there to call it a drop. Can’t say I mind as this will be a money-saving week. I need one or two after the Spring Fever sale pretty much cleared me out!

g-sweeper_6 said:

May 5th, 6:25 pm

I guess sony forgot to fill the void when they delayed The Last of Us. It’s alright though, that mega sale left me plenty to play.

BirdyKilla420 said:

May 5th, 6:27 pm

I would like to have the Warriors as a PS2 Classic. EU got the game in March. US needs this game PLEASE! and thank you.

Sgt_0951 said:

May 5th, 6:28 pm

This is a drop?

Epic fail.

Neku233 said:

May 5th, 6:29 pm

This drop is kind of bad but I am excited for Fatal Frame 2 so will be picking that up

XxGODxMODExX said:

May 5th, 6:30 pm

Where is everyone getting that Sleeping Dogs is free for Plus on Tuesday?

Crusher201 said:

May 5th, 6:31 pm

The good news is that Sleeping Dogs is coming to PS+ Tuesday. Too bad I already platinumed it. It would’ve been a good idea to move the PSABR sale to this week instead of last week.

NeoMahi said:

May 5th, 6:33 pm

Actually, I want to know where the Cross-Play for ‘Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault’ is on the Vita. Wasn’t that supposed to have been released last week? Have sales been that bad for it? Would you tell us the project was scrapped if that was the case? I just would like to play the game on the go is all. Insomniac Games, come on! Don’t leave us hangin like that.

Crusher201 said:

May 5th, 6:35 pm


The lastest Playstation Blogcast. We’re getting Sleeping Dogs, Pinball Arcade (cross-buy), Knytt Underground (cross-buy), and BlazBlue Contiuum Shift Extend (PS Vita only) this month. There’s also gonna be a Papo & Yo discount this week.

XxGODxMODExX said:

May 5th, 6:36 pm


Thanks. I usually skip over the blogcasts and wait for drops or store updates.

Crusher201 said:

May 5th, 6:39 pm


Search ‘deadlocked’ and you should find an update from February about Vita FFA. Buying the PS3 version will net you a free copy of Deadlocked. That post also says FFA was delayed to Spring, but I wonder if it’s been delayed further.


May 5th, 6:55 pm

Wish DCUO dlc were mentioned on these. They don’t say anything till the day before, or day of when it just shows up on psn
