Play as Nilin, an elite memory hunter with a clouded past – Become the most wanted memory hunter in Neo-Paris and experience the power to break into people’s minds to steal their memories.

RM_PS3_FOBRemember Me

Neo-Paris, 2084: Personal memories can now be digitized, bought, sold and traded. The last remnants of privacy and intimacy have been swept away in what appears to be a logical progression of the explosive growth of social networks at the beginning of the 21st century. The citizens themselves have accepted this surveillance society in exchange for the comfort only smart technology can provide. This memory economy gives immense power over society to just a handful of people.

A visionary 3rd person action adventure, Remember Me puts players into the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities have arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin sets out on a mission to recover her identity, helped by her last and only friend. This search for her past leads to her being hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society.

You people asking questions on here, give it a rest. Rey hasn’t answered questions on here in many months. I highly doubt that’s going to change.

klassymike said:

Looking forward to tomorrows Plus update. I hope it’s better than the May update was, which only Sleeping Dogs was all that I personally liked.

June 2nd, 4:51 pm

klassymike said:

June 2nd, 5:06 pm

I’d like to see something added to the IGC that the EU hasn’t already had. I don’t believe that has ever happened.

The_Dukenator said:

June 2nd, 5:16 pm

@18 Batman? I don’t think so. That game is playable a few times, then that’s it. Catherine? Maybe.

PainOfSarrow said:

June 2nd, 5:21 pm

Earth Defence Force: Insect Armageddon sounds good. il def look into that if its 10 and not 15… Alfa Romeo Racing: Italiano.. what the hell is that ?

PainOfSarrow said:

June 2nd, 5:25 pm

both those ps2 classics got horrible ign ratings. but who the hell would trust ign anyways ?

stlthriot said:

June 2nd, 5:26 pm

Remember Me looks great! Definitely picking it up! :)

asilentnoise said:

June 2nd, 5:35 pm

would love to get Limbo, hope its priced reasonably (is $10) or comes with a Plus discount…

cleversignin said:

June 2nd, 5:35 pm

I preordered Remember Me but thanks to PS+ I am caught up in a platinum chase on Sleeping Dogs so it will have to sit in plastic wrap until I beat that and Last of Us. Thanks for hosing up my plans PS+.

duke301 said:

June 2nd, 5:40 pm

Man, this is around the fourth crappy drop in a row? Another money saver. I’ll be looking forward to tomorrows Plus update, I hope its a good one! Seriously, The Last of Us isn’t going to release soon enough!

Johnny_Leyenda said:

June 2nd, 5:47 pm

For 2 Playstation 2 “Classics” I doubt anyone remember those games.
I’m hoping for decent PS+ games, hopefully more than 1 good game (usually at the beginning of the month) and less obscure $10 stuff.
I’d like Okami, or The Walking Dead, Journey, Sound Shapes, GOOD stuff. I must say in the past 2 months I haven’t played a single $10 game you guys gave us. And for the love of god please no more fighting games for Vita!

UmpleWu said:

June 2nd, 5:49 pm

I’m hoping for Xcom, Mass Effect 3, Dead or Alive 5 (+), Fat Princess, Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed, Little Deviants, for PS+ in June.

passivefamiliar said:

June 2nd, 5:59 pm

remember me of course looks good.

earth defense force. oh my gosh, i remember a N64 variant of that and it was a bit hard for me. i dont remember beating it, i was young, and its been awhile. but if thats cheap enough i’ll be picking it up to, nostalgia and all.

passivefamiliar said:

June 2nd, 6:03 pm

side note, to many people whine about not getting enough/quality FREE stuff. dont complain, be thankfull for whatever you get.

i’d like to see more sales though if you could pull that through, discount more games on release and keep the store up to date. (some old games are top dollar still, not alot alot, but enough. i know its a task for a team so i get it, just voicing) i spend more on sales and am happy.

i enjoy the obscure games i get for free from ps+, i get to try alot of things i wouldnt have otherwise. sometimes its a flop, sometimes it just falls flat and gets boring but sometimes i find a real gem of a game that im thrilled to have found. thanks sony

Just Class of Heroes 2 for me this week. I’d love to pick up Remember Me, but I don’t have the cash.

Anyhow, for those you who have yet to check out EDF: IA, it’s really good!

CommandingTiger said:

June 2nd, 6:25 pm

[Insert someone saying a weak drop here, week after week]

What do you expect? 1000 blu-ray games in a single week?
Won’t happen, regardless the console.

We’ll take what we can get. It’s not like we are close to the holidays.

Rukahz said:

June 2nd, 6:28 pm

i wonder samething @2, i saw other psvita app that out now & i look at old blog post , i was thinking toro friend network suppose come out this month cause they were both announce for spring so that imaginstruments app out so i thought i notice toro friend network be out when i saw imaginstruments , still no word bout ever since Feb.

CommandingTiger said:

June 2nd, 6:28 pm

Didn’t really liked that game on PSP, it was really buggy.

In any case, have you tried downloading it on the PS3 and then transfering it to the Vita?
I know it works for Gran Turismo PSP and Legend of Dragoon PS1 even if they aren’t available from the Vita store.

Ryumoau said:

June 2nd, 6:29 pm

nothing good this week. i really hope since its the month of E3 (and almost the year anniversary of the Instant Game Collection) that June’s IGC lineup will be all-star. Every week a great AAA title and no crappy indie games.

But thats probably too much to ask for. It’ll probably be some old as dirt game like the first Batman Arkham game. :(

MarkakaJin said:

June 2nd, 6:50 pm

Alfa Romeo Racing: Italiano and Ultimate Board Game Collection?
Seriously, who’s in charge for the PS2 Classics department and had the idea to put up those two games and consider them PS2 Classics?

Dangisuckatgamin said:

June 2nd, 7:01 pm

No we don’t expect the entire drop to be PS Vita games….
Console should always be the main thing in drops IMO.
Last weeks drop wasn’t bad though, this weeks is terrible.
Simple as that sir.

Have Remember Me pre-ordered…on PC! For only $37.50…beat that, Sony!

MisterOrlando said:

June 2nd, 7:18 pm

If you are a Plus member, do you have to give back the games that PSN gives you each month?

Nevi901 said:

June 2nd, 7:26 pm

Still no Crash or Spyro on Vita, I see.

Lyrick7 said:

June 2nd, 7:33 pm

PSOne Classic!
Medievil 2!

califoreigner said:

June 2nd, 7:34 pm

i’d shell out cash for an onimusha game or something decent for ps2. these “classics” are a bit of a joke

Lyrick7 said:

June 2nd, 7:34 pm


Yes it does. I accidently let my plus membership slip and all games I downloaded for free are off my account. I dont believe I had anything free downloaded at the time, so I dont know about that, but I can no longer download previous free content for plus members.

MisterOrlando said:

June 2nd, 7:38 pm

@ Lyrick7

Thanks for the reply! Yeah, I was thinking that you had to give the content back if you downloaded the freebies. That’s what I was afraid of. I don’t think it’s really worth it..

PrimeroIncognito said:

June 2nd, 7:40 pm

Remember Me sounds intriguing. I’ll have to watch some gameplay footage though, of course.

Overall, a solid week of releases.
