The Drop: New PlayStation Releases for February 4th, 2014

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

The Drop

Word on the (dark, abandoned) street is that Outlast frightens people. Intensely. PlayStation gamers can experience that for themselves when the hit survival horror game comes to PS4 this week, bringing with it a torrent of nightmares and cold sweats.

Set in the abandoned Mount Massive Asylum, Outlast depicts the chilling and dangerous investigation of freelance journalist Miles Upshur. Miles enters Mount Massive following an anonymous tip, and soon finds himself engulfed in unimaginable horrors. This first-person survival game showcases immense scares and a focus on atmosphere. Night lights may be required.

For those gamers averse to horror games, the fast-paced platformer Dustforce also launches on PS3 and PS Vita this week. Traverse 2D environments and sweep up dust while racing the clock. Perfect every jump, nail every attack, and clear increasingly complex stages — all while freeing adorable animals from the clutches of dirt and grime. Really!

There’s lots more coming to the world of PlayStation, so read on for a complete list of new releases. And enjoy the Drop!

Ha! Until Dawn is the name. Thank you.
supposedly the Move controller was to also function as a flashlight and stuff. I hope sony don’t totally scrap the move support and features originally meant for Until Dawn. I believe PS4 supports Move, so a cross gen version with streaming/interact capability at 1080p 60fps could be awesome.

@BabyOfSarrow How do you know I was referring to you? I said a certain Sarrow, that could have been anyone. I didn’t call you a baby this time like I always do until this post. You should wish you are on L0YD’s feet right now. We finally understand each other and I’m going to leave him alone from now on. I don’t think I’ll leave you alone anytime soon if you keep this up. Besides, you’re the one who started crap with me to begin with. I already blocked you from my PS3, so don’t expect anymore messages from me as I only sent one.

Going to have a great time getting scared I hope.

Dustforce and a free copy of Outlast for me.

It seems like Nintendo is giving up on the hardware side. If Sony merges with Sony, they will destroy Microsoft. I would love to play Zelda Windwaker HD and Mariocart on my vita! I also saw that Sega has given Atlus rights to “revisit” any of Sega’s games. I NEED to play Skies of Arcadia HD, and potentially a new Shenmue, Skies of Arcadia, Jet Set Grind/Radio or Panzer Dragoon would be amazing! I am tore up right now, but even if I was 100% sober, I still would possibly have typed this! It’s also rumored Sony is about to add PS1 and PS2 emulation on PS4 soon! I can’t wait until E3! I am hammered by the way, and that was the worst Superbowl ever!


February 2nd, 9:06 pm

Outlast and Trapt can’t wait. I love the deception series !!!!

I know that by now you’ve seen some, if not all of my requests/rants about information for seemingly invisible games, and im more than sure its become at least to some extent annoying. I really just want someone here at the blog to just answer these question or at the very least take the initial step of inquiring to your sources some relevant and current info on some if not all (or most) of these really shrouded games:

rocket birds 2
planetside 2
mercenary kings
the binding of Isaac rebirth
1001 spikes
shadow warrior
secret ponchos
diablo 3
cyberpunk 2077
plants vs zombies: garden warfare
n++ (come on, this shouldn’t have even taken this long to come out)
rouge legacy
hyper light drifter
switch galaxy ultra
please, PLEASE… just…. ok? thank you

I would like to see the PS1 Deception games made available here in the US. Also still hoping to see Haunting Ground, Crimson Tears, the Rez port, and maybe even Tenchu Wrath of Heaven/Fatal Shadows on PSN. FFXII would also be nice.

PainOfSarrow said:

February 2nd, 11:14 pm

why not direct it to me as its clear you was referring to me. as its correctly spelled sorrow not sarrow. punk move gamer. also blocked me on ps3 ? lol how much of ah wuss can you get. anyways i hope Dustforce has a level editor. as it seems the pc version does. i can only hope.

Wow. I am so happy I have PS+. I’ve had it for almost a full year, and it’s probably the best gaming decision I’ve made in a LONG time. I’m interested in playing Outlast! Wish I had a Vita..

Lestatdelioncort said:

February 3rd, 12:11 am

Awesome more classics thanks Sony! Here’s hoping you guys can bring Valkyrie Profile 1 and Valkyrie Profile 2 to psn classics. : )

PrinceofXIII said:

February 3rd, 12:48 am

more PS1 and PS2 games please!!

Gamerzlimited said:

February 3rd, 1:51 am

Forgot to comment about Gex, that’s a franchise I never got to play back when I had a PS1. Maybe I’ll give it a try, hope it’s good.

@DumbOfSarrow Primero corrected you, yet you still say insults to him too even though it’s your fault you spelled it wrong. That makes you a dumb baby. With that type of language, I don’t think I will leave you alone. In fact, you’re nothing but an annoying pest. You should be lucky I blocked you, otherwise I would have spam the heck of your inbox about your udder nonsense if you keep sending me messages. I’m glad I talked to L0YD in a gentlemanly fashion, now I no longer think of him as a troll and he’s no annoying baby like you.

Sennyize said:

February 3rd, 3:39 am

I remember playing Gex on some other system, might pick it up sometime since it was pretty awesome.
Also rabbit season.

Superstone said:

February 3rd, 4:23 am

PS2 classics on the Vita please

alexroedor said:

February 3rd, 5:21 am

We need Mortal Kombat Trilogy a classic for PS Store, and more exclusive gams for Vta, like GOD OF WAR.

Segafan8 said:

This guy is going on about Crash Tag Team Racing again? This guy has no sense of value. Like I said last year Crash Tag Team Racing can never make up for the PSOne titles. CTR: Crash Team Racing is a way better game and the first 3 Crash Titles are not comparable apart from being able to walk on feet and spin lmao. Spyro and Crash need to be put on Vita now!! It’s been around a Year and a half and still ignoring the comments. Everywhere else can play it, but one of my reasons for having a Vita was for those games on the go with real analog controls, cause I hated the PSP Digital controls on games like Crash Team Racing and Spyro

Any word on Dark Cloud 1 & 2 coming to PSN???

PainOfSarrow said:

February 3rd, 6:41 am

Gamerzlimited hahaha you stay sucking up to prime. for the info my normal psn was painofsorrow. i lost my log in so i made a new account and put an A instead. maybe you are to dumb to understand. also i tried to just have a proper convo with you about an interesting indie game and you just toss insults at me like the child you are. did you not read the blog rules or is your ignorance getting the best of you ? i say the second.

jefferyshimkus said:

I need a scary game in my life. Will DL this as soon as I get home Tuesday

hmw_kamikaze said:

Wow guys, this weeks update is almost boner inducing.

DexterP17 said:

February 3rd, 7:55 am

Anyone know if episode 2 of The Wolf Among Us will be released this week?

Voice_of_Wind said:

February 3rd, 7:58 am

I had a question in regards to the Drakengard series, I had heard that a third entry might be released this year. I was curious, what would be the feasibility of getting Darkengard 1 and 2 released as classics before then?

Jays1Fan said:

February 3rd, 9:16 am

I agree with sonicfan .. Tomb Raider CHRONICLES , needs to be on the store. And if you make Tomb Raider Angel ( ps2 ) you can have a COMPLETE set of the Best Series EVER.

RagingMexicano87 said:

February 3rd, 9:23 am

Anyone know the price for Surge Deluxe on vita? I’ll be getting Gex and Dustforce on vita and the Wolf Among US on episode 2 on Wednesday! ;D

Harerazer said:

Hopefully Truck Racer is nothing like Rig Racer was. This is a nice varied week tho.

Beyond Ryan! I suggest that the weekly DLC should be mentioned in this section or in another! Great Job putting an early Drop every Sunday!

Gamerzlimited said:

February 3rd, 11:16 am

@Teflon02 Are you an idiot? I already told him it’s not the same game and LY0D is aware of that, but it is only Crash game you can get for the time being. You think you are so special because you have the UMD. At least LY0D was nice enough to take the suggestion in a gentlemanly fashion without petty insults. You however, don’t take my suggestions lightly. This is the future, go play newer games instead of staying in the attic with an old TV playing outdated titles grandpa.

@DumbOfSarrow Maybe you should have put 2, Alt, or an X after you name instead of an a, you crybaby. That’s probably why Primero thought of you as a bad speller. Who’s the one that started this fight in the first place? You of course, you say something behind my back when I’m not around at the blog. Now it’s my turn to fight back.

Hello exterminator? I got a Sarrow infestation at the PS blog. Yes, I can hold.

sic2291 said:

February 3rd, 11:21 am

Neither of these two are on my must buy list but it’s nice to see PS1/PS2 classics being released again.

PainOfSarrow said:

February 3rd, 1:35 pm

a fight ? haha this is childs play to me. guess you will remain my target until you agree to meet me in person so i can finaly smash ur face in. maybe then you will know what ah real fight is. hell you to scared to even get on ah mic vocally. nothing but ah keyboard warrior lol.

olemissrebel77 said:

February 3rd, 2:31 pm

I’ll be playing Outlast without headphones and with the lights ON…because I’m a baby :)

Gamerzlimited said:

February 3rd, 3:57 pm

If only I have a PS4, I would love to try out Outlast. Wanna see how scary it really is.

@Teflon02 Also, I forgot to say this but you are officially LY0D’s replacement on my top 10 trolls list. I used to say he was the worst, but you’re much worse than him. Turns out he’s asking politely and I was too blind to realize that. Unlike you, I can tell you are “demanding” it. You are the real clown and you should be happy I put you on that list. Enjoy life as a troll.

@BabyOfSarrow You can’t call me a scaredy cat when I don’t even had a mic. Maybe I should so I can destroy you and that my best friend has been bragging me to get one. And by the way, neither me nor the original owner of my account goes by this name anymore. So you’re talking to a persona that no longer exists. Sony won’t let me change it to my new name because of their strict policies, so good luck finding me. :P


February 3rd, 4:58 pm

I can’t wait till tomorrow. I played outlast on the computer a wonderful well made game and thanks to Sony i can now enjoy this game on my PS4. The graphics were great on my computer can’t wait to see even better.

Say what 3 PS Vita games dropping tommorrow wow, keep those PS Vita games coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DrGabenator said:

February 3rd, 7:36 pm

These are great and I’m looking forward to buying Gex and Dustforce. Also, why no Spyro and Crash on the Vita yet? I know TONS of Vita owners that would buy them in a heartbeat…

livingBiohazard7 said:

February 3rd, 9:43 pm

Very excited for dis ;3

walterwu said:

February 3rd, 10:11 pm

I won’t buy anything for my PS3 anymore because my 1TB hard drive is out of space, and it is too inconvenient to delete things just to load other things on. This is 2014, Sony, you should make system that can handle 2TB drives, such as the Samsung M9T drives, that physically fit inside the PS3, but is incompatible with the OS.

My vita is becoming paperweight worthy only now. :(

Tuto1124 said:

NobleChipmnk said:
