The Drop: New PlayStation Releases for October 8th, 2013

Ryan Clements's Avatar Posted by Senior Specialist, SIEA Social Media

The Drop

Prepare to unravel supernatural mysteries, or relive two award-winning experiences of 2012. All this and more join the PlayStation lineup this week. Please charge your DualShocks in preparation.

Jodie Holmes has not lived her life alone. Since childhood, she has been followed by an unseen entity of incredible power. It’s bound to her, and the mystery of this connection only deepens throughout her years. Experience Jodie’s story on Tuesday when Beyond: Two Souls launches for PS3. This story-driven thriller comes from the same team that brought you Heavy Rain in 2010, so you can expect the same quality character drama and visual spectacle.

And if you missed out on Borderlands 2 or Dishonored — two critically-acclaimed games that launched last year — you can finally see why gamers have been raving. Both games are getting Game of the Year Editions this week, which gives you the opportunity to catch up on your gun-crazy loot hunting, or stealth-infused steampunk, respectively.

Looking for something a little quirkier? Consider Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness, and plunge into the RPG insanity that can satisfy even the most hardcore strategy lovers.

For a full list of games coming this week, keep scrolling. And enjoy the Drop!

New PlayStation Releases This Week

PS3, PS Vita, PSN
Frantic, funny multiplayer with an added ninja twist. Control super-powered ninjas and compete with your friends in dangerous arenas. Win not with direct attacks, but by forcing other plays into environmental hazards, like lava pits and laser beams.
A tile-based, strategy RPG. Control your army, composed of several decorated tiles, by sliding them across the board towards opposing forces. Defeat monsters and build your army in order to vanquish the final threat waiting for you at the end of your journey.
PS3, Retail
Live the life of Jodie Holmes, a young woman with an extraordinary companion. Experience a story-driven adventure as you unravel the questions surrounding the powerful entity known as Aiden, and survive the dangers Jodie faces, both uncommon and everyday.
PS3, Retail
Rejoice, for there is loot. Return to Pandora and enjoy all the gun-wielding, treasure-dropping psychos that occupy its unforgiving surface. The critically-acclaimed shooter comes packed with tons of DLC for newcomers and veterans.
PS3, Retail
It’s a Capcom collection! Contains Resident Evil 6, Super Street Fighter IV, Devil May Cry 4, Dead Rising 2, and Mega Man 10. More than enough gaming goodness for any interested parties.
PS3, PSN, Retail
It’s about time JRPG fans return to the Netherworld, and the unlikely trio that started it all. This strategy game combines a quirky sense of humor with a massive battle system, enabling you to invest a tremendous amount of time into playing. Just watch out for Prinnys.
PS3, PSN, Retail
A stealth adventure with ample player flexibility, Dishonored returns and brings a ton of downloadable content along for the ride. Travel back to the plague-ridden city of Dunwall as Corvo Attano, and wield weapons both mechanical and mystical in an effort to purge the corruption from within the city.
Experience all the cars and circuits from the FIA Formula One World Championship, along with classic content. Take the Young Driver Test to learn the techniques needed for elite-level drivers, race with 80’s and 90’s era cars, and chase fame in Grand Prix Mode.
PS2 Classic, PSN
A top-down shooter with old-school, 2D visuals. Travel through snowy forests and battle enemies as Sayuki, in an effort to save a young boy from a terrible curse.
PS3, PSN, Retail
The long-running dance series is back, with more than 40 tracks to dance to. Step into Party Master mode to customize your group jam sessions, or take the dancing online in Just Dance’s first ever online multiplayer mode.
PS Vita, PSN
An enhanced, portable version of the PS3 game, Malicious, the PS Vita version boasts more stages, more bosses, and more powers. Choose your battle and fight for the good of the kingdom.
This third-person, cooperative beat ’em up puts you in the orc’s shoes for once. Command an orc warrior and wield the terrifying power of flatulence against your human enemies.
PS Vita, PSN
Take your worms on the go! Plot your attacks across more than 70 levels of strategic mayhem. Tackle the campaign alone, or play with friends and share in the destructive goodness together.

Can’t wait! I wasn’t even planning on picking up Beyond: Two Souls until I played that incredible demo. Got my Limited Edition reserved and ready for pick-up on Tuesday. Dare I say, we may have another Game of The Year contender on our hands.

Beyond looks pretty good, gotta make a decision after playing the demo, by the way, I recently finished the Vita anniversary game Wild Arms for PSone and I gotta say it’s freaking great! I’m about to download the second, however I noticed you don’t have the third one on the PS2 Classics, it would be great if you guys talked to sony about it.

Heavenly Guardian! Yes! Keep up the PS2 and PSOne ports, I love them!

Sgt_0951 said:

October 6th, 10:33 am

Would love to get F1 2013, but there are other games I’ve needed to buy for a while already. 2k14, Madden 25, Grid 2, preordered GT6 on Amazon, and I still need to finish Diablo. One of these days……….

My roommate & I weren’t big fans of the Beyond demo. Game looks gorgeous graphically and I’m sure it will do very well, but that wasn’t enough for us to enjoy games like this & Heavy Rain.

Goniloc said:

October 6th, 10:36 am

Please port the PS2 Nightmare before Christmas game next! I need some Halloween games!

When will GTA 1 and 2 from PS1 be on the psn?

October 6th, 10:37 am

Greetings, I’m planning to buy the infinite balls mode for Breakquest: Extra Evolution so I don’t have to worry about losing the balls, specially when I lend my game to my cousins. So here is the question: When the game starts it says that if the save data is deleted all your balls purchased will be lost, that would be the case with infinite balls mode too right? I mean, if I decide to delete the game then my purchase would be lost?
Thank you for your attention.

Beyond: Two Souls, Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness and Malicious Rebirth OMG wath am gonna do. I need them all.

Ry-Dog said:

October 6th, 10:44 am

can someone explain to me why Haunting Ground has not came out as a PS2 Classic yet.

xClayMeow said:

October 6th, 10:46 am

Looking forward to trying Atomic Ninjas.

What’s up with Orc Attack? I thought it was coming to Vita too? Hell, it was leaked prematurely as Vita IGC before it got delayed.

DesertAss2in said:

BEYOND! Two Souls looks awesome! BEYOND!

IzoGray said:

That’s a pretty hefty drop.

This Drop is AMAZING for Vita owners! Good job! ;)

NeoMahi said:

October 6th, 11:29 am

Man, that’s a lot for this week. You’re telling me then, that Ryan Clements hasn’t yet played Beyond: Two Souls? It seems that Ray played pretty much everything. Oh well. Yeah, its Beyond: Two Souls for me as well.

@ NJA Shadow – Eh… I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a “Game of the Year Contender”. I think it’ll be an amazing game but: BioShock Infinite, The Last of Us, Animal Crossing (3DS) which is unlikely to win but is still on there, and heaven forbid Grand Theft Auto V. So, there’s a lot going on and we still haven’t seen much of “Watch Dogs” yet. But I think it’ll come down to BioShock Infinite, The Last of Us, and Animal Crossing. That doesn’t really take away from how awesome Beyond: Two Souls will be though.

Rezolution77 said:

October 6th, 11:30 am

Still dissapointed with the price on Lone Survivor.

Also, we definately need a fix on purchasing games in our IGC (example – Monster Tycoon).

Malicious Rebirth looks great, and happy to see the Vita has potential to revisit PS2 classics.

But we need more sales.

Enjoying Killzone Mercenary and Persona 4, catching the $10 credit.
*How do we get that sent to email, if we are without our PS3???*

October 6th, 11:40 am

Ok I Have a huge question I’ve been waiting for stuff to come out for the vita more features, games, apps, and the power of cross platform play and every drop I’ve been seeing doesn’t have that much for the vita and that makes me a little bit upset I’ve always been a sony fan from the first ps one with it’s grey textile color of a platform to the latest ps4 I have a psp,ps2,ps3,psvita and I’m planning on getting the ps4 but I would like to see more with the vita I like to have something that is portable even the chance to use the tag app whenever that is coming out in the us please sony I don’t want to see this platform die because It is an amazing platform and great games like uncharted golden abyss, gravity rush, kill zone mercenary, sound shapes, assassins creed 3 liberation, and more please let us see the true capabilities of the ps vita.

Is Capcom Essentials a joke?

Because I’m laughing pretty hard. Why would they package and in the case of Street Fighter, re-re-re-re-re-repackage a game they’ve already repackaged AND are planning on releasing an “Enhanced , please buy it again edition” in the coming months?

So-So week.

I honestly hope Beyond Two Souls actually has more than two english speaking voice actors. Cage’s games always seem to have native french speakers speaking a strained faux-english. Sort of like how Heavy Rain became instantly better if played in French.

I have a few questions about ps plus after the ps4 launch:
1 – is there gonna be games on the IGC for ps4 in december already?
2 – can you put the ps4 games on your download list even if you dont ghave a ps4 and download it when you get one?
3 – Is the PS3 IGC gonna be smaler after the ps4 games coming in?
4 – How many games a month are there gonna be for PS4?
5 – How many games a month are there gonna be for PS3(after ps4 launch)?
6 – Is the PS4 gonna count to de 2 console maximun for account downloads(making it only piossible for you to download content on your PS3 and PS4)?
7 – Is PS4 IGC gonna have anual(like ps3′s Uncharted 3, XCOM, and LBPC) games or just the monthly games?
8 – is the PS3 anaual game collection going to be renewed in the folloing years?
9 – How long until PS3 IGC dissapears only leaving the vita and PS4?
I know those are a lot of questions, but I think I am not the only one with dose doubts.

So what exactly will the prices of each of these items be? This information is nearly useless to me if it won’t even tell me the price.

T3DV0L70L1N4 said:

October 6th, 1:14 pm

How about Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops on Vita? Please?

Evil_Vladimyr said:

October 6th, 1:27 pm

Very nice edition of the Drop. Love the new layout.

Lots of very cool games coming out this week as well, although I can’t wait to start playing Beyond, as the demo rocked!
