The Drop: New PlayStation Releases for November 26th, 2013

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

The Drop

It’s almost time to give thanks and pile loads of food onto your plate — copious amounts that you couldn’t possibly eat in one sitting. And as you sprawl out in a half-awake state, what better way to digest food than with some new video games? How about a long-running Japanese RPG with a huge world to explore? Sounds pretty tasty.

That’s right, this week sees the launch of Ys: Memories of Celceta. This JRPG joins the PS Vita family with an action-heavy battle system and an overworld that’s bigger than all the other maps in the series… combined.

Players will take control of series hero Adol Christin, and work to piece together his broken memories as he explores the dangers and intrigue of the Great Forest. Ys: Memories of Celceta also boasts an elaborate crafting system for those gamers out there that love to tweak gear and find the perfect tools for battle.

The PlayStation family also (re)welcomes two PSone Classics: Metal Gear Solid VR Missions and Oddworld: Abe Boxx, as well as the PS3 version of Super Motherload.

For a full list of games coming to PlayStation this week, check below. And, as ever, enjoy the Drop!

Ys: Memories of Celceta Art

For SS brave soldiers are we getting Shion’s golden armor as DLC?

Another slow week, but my wallet got pounded last week with Tearaway and some non-Sony purchases. So I need to save a little for Christmas!

Guys, just a heads up: Prices aren’t gonna be listed in the Drop. We’ll get those in the PS Store Update post on Tuesday for digital. Retail-only prices will have to be found elsewhere/posted by other users.

I’m into Oddworld right now, so it’s nice to see the old PS1 bundle finally making it to the Classics section. Need to see a price (which I know I won’t find here) first, though. They’re available on the store now individually for $10 each, which is pretty steep for 15-year-old games from 3 console gens ago. Most I’ll pay is $15, and even then…

RoII_chan said:

No PSN pre-order for SS brave soldiers?

Skyyplum said:

November 25th, 1:24 am

Nothing for PS4? And any word on Pinball Arcade?

ThumbsOfSteel74 said:

November 25th, 1:29 am

You mean you’re not super-excited about the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Demo on PS4?!?!?!?!?!


Meh. There’s stuff coming next week for sure, and lots more early next year. Greatness awaits…the new year. :P

Will my balance in the my PS3 account be carried over to my PSN account ? Please respond T^T

@ HIRAKOfurlan: You don’t have a balance on your PS3 account. You have a balance in your wallet, which is tied to your PSN/SEN account. Just like the Vita accesses the same wallet funds, so does the PS4. They’re all on the same network.

OT: Really excited for Ys: Memories of Celceta. It was funny listening to you guys try and decide how to pronounce it on the Blogcast. As always Ryan, you seem to be the expert on the JRPG stuff. Gonna have to put my DS4 down for a little while so I can try it out.

Having SS digitally will make me play it more.. it’s such a hassle taking out a really good game to play it for a sec… Haha. So, I’ll be enjoying that.

But that really good game inside my Vita will probably be Ys or Tearaway this week… they’ll be being swapped out very often whenever I’m not home playing my PS4..

I have to agree with comment #50…Seriously where are the new games for this amazing handheld system that has so much potential..we need more than just ported ps2 games and remote play for games that we bought for our systems.We should atleast get some news about some new games just to keep us interested or impressed.
Sony/Playstation..please get your handheld act loyal PlayStation fans deserve better!! Hopefully you take us seriously and listen to our comments..all i want to see is a new god of war, gta on it..or even a saints row or SHANK..something rated M to keep us adults interested as well :p

Guys and gals, you might want to temper your expectations for Vita titles for the time being. Sony just launched the PS4 and much of their efforts will be directed at supporting that system so that they build a solid consumer base. I too am disappointed at the lack of titles announced for the Vita, but I’m also not expecting much from Sony on that front for the next year. It’s why I eventually caved and picked up a 3DS as well.

Holy crap!! New PS one games?? Hallelujah!

good news to tell everyone the final fantasy reborn will be coming to ps4 in 2014

BigStack007 said:

November 25th, 7:16 am

How bout all that PS4 love._ Wow,Sony,you’re blowing me away with all the PS4 love you’re showing us. I’m so blown away that i’m thinking about selling my PS4 already. Boredom Awaits.

When is mp3/CD and DLNA support “dropping” for my PS4? Music Unlimited is horrific.

hmw_kamikaze said:

November 25th, 7:44 am

No PS4 drops yet? Next week?

BigStack007 said:

November 25th, 7:46 am

At least give us the mp3,cd,and DLNA features that we had with our PS3’s. How about a web browser that’s at least as good as the PS3 web browser. With an updated flash player. The PS4 web browser is worse than the PS3 web browser. I thought it was impossible to make a worse browser than the PS3’s web browser,but you surprised me again Sony. Congratulations. 3 steps forward,2 steps back. Boredom Awaits.

MaxSterling85 said:

November 25th, 8:03 am

Einhander needs to come out, ever since Resogun came out made me want to replay that one on my Vita/PS3/PS4. Crossing Fingers. Where are the prices?

MaxSterling85 said:

November 25th, 8:04 am

Also when is Crunchyroll coming to PS VITA since it won’t 2nd screen that app from PS4?

Welmosca said:

November 25th, 8:19 am

That makes me a sad reaper :'(

Trenchmace said:

Am I the only one that really wishes the SOCOM series was available through PSN Classics?

Snarles_Barkly said:

November 25th, 12:22 pm

Is Escape Plan still being released this Friday for PS4? Been waiting to play it for awhile.

Ragna0088 said:

November 25th, 12:32 pm

man someone got a hold to my pw and changed it,funny how only “I” know about it..nice security sony.
anyway @112-I’m not gonna buy what you said.first people wanna say (before the ps4 release) sony is gonna focus on the ps3 more than the vita since the ps3 has been around longer,now you’re saying they’re gonna focus on the ps4 since its newer.I’m not gonna buy that sincd its making me highly upset (pissed really) because the vita is hardly getting good games and most are already on the freaking ps3.this handheld has (like they all say) alot of potential and most of it is being wasted,the only game I can think of (that I’ve played so far) that exploits it’s potential is gravity rush but too bad the game has horrible replay value and I prefer to use males in games instead of females.

Are we ever going to get word if GT6 is gioing to be a day one digital release, game is due in two weeks and we still know squat as to where both Europe and Japan have known for weeks now that it was. Why is our PSN crew so incompetent to those running the PSN stores elsewhere?

emanual said:

November 25th, 2:15 pm

Decent update, although I gave up my vita for a 3DS…

SnowForge said:

November 25th, 2:19 pm

So, will the original Metal Gear Solid be put on the PS Vita Store any time soon?

bj8534 said:

November 25th, 2:29 pm

Why are they dragging us ps4 users along? Come out with some grade “A” games already._

Binarynova said:

November 25th, 3:10 pm

@132: If you have a PS3 you can buy the game on PS3 and transfer it to your Vita. I did that with Metal Gear Solid yesterday. :)

@133: “Dragging us ps4 users along”? Really? It just came out. Give developers time to work. They’re stressed out enough by their publishers as it is.

immyouany said:

November 25th, 4:04 pm

Sadness… I was hoping for at least 1 PS4 title this drop…

Chrisglare said:

November 25th, 4:05 pm

Y’s! Finally! I’ve been waiting for this for months. I’m a really big fan of the series. I know for a fact this game is going to be amazing. (:

RaxGhost said:

November 25th, 4:25 pm

Remind me if MGS VR Missions still have campaign/story mode?

Ragna0088 said:

November 25th, 5:33 pm

when does the store get updated?I remember on day it was updated around midnight for EST (I’m in the PST zone) but I still dunno when it actually is,and I’m too hyped for celceta to even focus on sleeping.

zombie9 said:

November 25th, 6:14 pm

Remote play is suppose to sell Vita systems not Vita games. where have you people been? PS4 MG5 bundle please:)

magooser said:

November 25th, 6:17 pm

HELP, I went to Gamestop to preorder it today and was told people wouldn’t get their copies of Y’s in time. :( What the heck?

PrimeroIncognito said:

November 25th, 6:18 pm

Need For Speed Rivals (PS3 version) is on sale on Amazon right now for $39.99. (PS4 version is $49)

And Puppeteer is only $19.99 if anyone is interested. Looks like Black Friday started early. I just ordered both. :)

zombie9 said:

November 25th, 6:38 pm

If I like my PS3 games I get to keep them on PS4. oh wait Obama said the same thing sorry got Obama care mixed up. no you do not get to keep it:)

Methos1975 said:

November 25th, 7:00 pm

To be fair, Sony has stated since the PS4 was announced that there was no BC on the console. It sucks, but what can you do

tusunami said:

November 25th, 7:37 pm

Kanon_of_Gemini said:

I haven’t read every single post, but I wanted to take this chance to remind everyone about something that’s not listed in this weeks Drop for the PS Vita.

To all the Rayman Legend fans out there… don’t forget about tomorrow’s (the 26th) patch/update for Legends that adds in the Invasion mode and thus completes the experience in terms of the Vita version matching up with what all the other versions on consoles offer. Ubisoft made the promise shortly after the game released that they would patch in the Invasion/rest of the game and it looks as if they’re going to keep their promise, hopefully… as in they haven’t up until now announced any delays or changes.

So lets all hope that by this time tomorrow night we can all finally play through the game in its entirety as the developers intended. For me personally, I held off on even starting the game once I heard about Ubisoft stating that they would patch in the rest of the game. With that said, I still cannot wait for the challenge that the Invasion Mode brings with it, along with the rest of the game and all of its beauty & glory!!

Finally another PSone game. It’s been awhile since you guys released a classic. Still waiting for Brave Fencer Musashiden, Tenchu 1 & 2, Tekken 3, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo.
