The Drop: New PlayStation Releases for March 18th, 2014

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

The Drop

Singe the rainy streets of Seattle with neon footprints, or sneak through a military compound as a legendary hero; it’s a colossal week for gaming, as both inFAMOUS Second Son and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes arrive on PlayStation.

Sucker Punch’s critically-acclaimed, open-world series continues this coming Friday with inFAMOUS Second Son on PS4. Imbued with incredible powers, protagonist Delsin Rowe clashes against the Department of Unified Protection in glorious displays of smoke and neon. Fight the oppressive institution, expand Delsin’s super-human abilities, and explore a massive digital Seattle along the way.

For fans of stealth and political intrigue, the next chapter in Hideo Kojima’s sweeping espionage action series arrives on Tuesday. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, which serves as a prologue to the upcoming Phantom Pain, finds Big Boss infiltrating a military base in Cuba. With a redesigned interface, multiple missions, and a new open-world design, Ground Zeroes promises an unrivaled degree of freedom in the Metal Gear universe.

For a complete list of games and demos coming this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

FFX/X-2 HD Remaster!!! CAN NOT WAIT!!! Less than 48 hours to go for me. Someone on Gamefaqs.com on of the threads for the Vita version of the 2 games posted pics of the game, and they look great and he even said it plays as well as we all remember (FFX at least).

    Really hope you enjoy it. FFX was classic.

Why is Infamous releasing on Friday instead of Tuesday? The Last of Us did this too, just wondering why?

UltimatoRaul said:

March 16th, 10:46 am

When it comes out Borderlands 2 for the Vita?

Sonicfan11589 said:

March 16th, 10:47 am

My father and I got my older brother a Vita when he came home for a week and a half last month, and i plan on getting him his own copy of FFX/X-2 HD Remaster when returns in May for his birthday. This is my MOST ANTICIPATED VITA game for this year. It’s like waiting for Xmas.

Zaul013 said:

Good Drop Thanks To FFX, But Weres Minecraft For PSVita?, Any Info?

anti-altair16 said:

March 16th, 10:48 am

Should’ve said “Orbital Drop into Seattle” Ryan because that’s Delsin’s super move. Also

INFAMOUS! INFAMOUS! INFAMOUS! I’ve been waiting a year for this! I got my PS4 for this game. This week is going to be so slow, I wish it came out Tuesday. :( I can’t wait to pick up my collectors edition, I’m going to wear that beanie while playing. INFAMOUS!!!

I wonder which I should pick for FFXHD. On my ps3 or on my vita? Though they said that they look fairly the same, and I believe em. How about u Ryan? Where will you guys play FFXHD?

    Ryan Clements said:

    March 16th, 10:50 am

    Anywhere! I think PS3, just to remember my PS2 experience with it, but the Vita version also looks slick. Go with your gut!

Sonicfan11589 said:

Just curious, what does the “Beyond” comments mean?

only wish inFamous Second Son was coming on Tuesday rather then Friday.

but this week totally getting:

inFamous : Second Son (already pre-ordered)
Metal Gear Solid : Ground Zeroes (PS4)
Final Fantasy X (Vita)

Steamworld Dig and Luftrausers look really interesting too!

Sonicfan11589 said:

March 16th, 10:50 am

Yes I know FFX is a real classic FF. Can’t wait to freaking play it, I am soooo stoked. I can’t stop going to the Gamefaqs boards and reading about the game.

    Good question. Might want to hit up Square Enix on Twitter, because I’m not entirely sure.

BEYOND! Ryan, any word on when the Blue PS4 controller will come to the states? I’d rather not have to import it :(

    Beyond! I have no information on that, apologies! Thanks for your note.

Sonicfan11589 said:

@23 Unfortunately i have heard u CAN ONLY BUY BOTH GAMES TOGETHER AND NOT SEPARATELY. They are bundled together both digitally and in retail form for $39.99. Sorry.

Dmaki650 said:

March 16th, 10:54 am

@23 (Winscar_Shinobi)

No they will not be sold separately.

darkofeden said:

March 16th, 10:55 am

No pre-order for Ground Zeroes on PS4?

V-Angelus01 said:

March 16th, 10:55 am

@Ryan well my guts is telling me to go with vita more cuz of that FF is a kinda “grindy” game. But the nostalgic kid in me says ps3. well anyways. Ill listen to my guts haha. I still got a few days left to finalize my decision. :) THANKS!

djsaiyan said:

March 16th, 10:55 am

Ouch my poor backlog.

FFX/X-2 HD, Ground Zeroes and Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z on Tuesday, and then Second Son on Friday. Also Luftrausers.

This is easily the craziest week for gamers in some time. This whole month has been pretty ridiculous.

    Ryan Clements said:

    March 16th, 11:27 am

    Indeed. Good luck with that backlog!

Sonicfan11589 said:

March 16th, 10:55 am

Also just wanted to say (sorry for the 1000 posts), for those getting FFX/X-2 HD digitally, hopefully you guys won’t be late with the store update again this week, especially since it is an especially good week with new releases. Just a heads up. :)

Classic PS2 wish list:
– Silent Hill. Origins
– Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria
– Obscure 1, 2

davidxraw said:

March 16th, 10:58 am

I can only dream of a day where there would be like 10 demos. There are so many games especially indies that I want to try but there are no demos. Cuboid? Braid? Puzzle Dimension? Hydrophobia: Prophecy? Arkedo Series? Derrick the Deathfin? Rain? Skydive: Proximity Flight? just to name a few. I really enjoyed how we got Jetpack Joyride for free. I think Sony should release some more minis for free if possible.

Hello!
Will FF X/X2 HD have french texts?

Does Naval Strike for BF4 drop the 18th as well?

AHHHHHHHHHH I WANT SECOND SON NOW!!!!!!!!!

coolasj19 said:

March 16th, 11:11 am

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Collection can not be bought separately. FFX-2 is better in some ways anyway, in my opinion. And please Ryan, try really hard to get a time for the inFamous download going live. I need to schedule some stuff depending on when I can start and then play it. Also, this week is freaking bonkers. 3 AAA Tier games and an Indie game I’ve been waiting for for forever.

Make AR Ninjas a full game also add online leaderboards….we are having so much fun with that game!

Dansgaming said:

March 16th, 11:16 am

Why isn’t Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes available for preorder on the PS4 store yet? I’d like to get a digital copy but not if I can’t preorder ahead of time.

emmanu888 said:

March 16th, 11:16 am

My wallet is gonna weep the next i buy a PS4 game. Stupid price raise, in Canada, inFamous is 70 bucks !

Arkafazin said:

March 16th, 11:17 am

It’s Spring break for me and I’m getting Final Fantasy X/X-2 Collection, MGSV, and Infamous: Second Son. Gonna be a very fun and relaxing week off of school! :D

Faenix1 said:

March 16th, 11:20 am

Would of been an exciting week but I’m getting stuck with the LE for FFX|X-2. If I try and swap it I’ll lose my preorder discount I got, AND have to pay even more due to the Canadian game price increase. :(

ErsatzJobl said:

Luftrausers looks sick.

peanut0423 said:

I really hope they update the store early.

PrimeroIncognito said:

March 16th, 11:23 am

@ Wolfe13

Because movies always release on Fridays. Hardy har har…

Just teasing, everyone. I’m sure Second Son will be a great game.

@ davidxraw

Proximity Flight is awesome. You should just buy it. It’s like SSX in the air.

erosfortones said:

March 16th, 11:26 am

Oh man, inFAMOUS: Second Son, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, & Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD here I come!

MarinoBrea said:

March 16th, 11:28 am

Metal Gear!? It can’t be!

boomstickbhg said:

March 16th, 11:31 am

Do we get the store updated on Tuesday this week or should we expect to wait until late Thursday with zero communication from Sony once again?
