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!

      Ryan Clements

      Sorry, I don’t have any updates for you! They don’t tell me anything! >_<

  • Beyond! Great week for me, Final Fantasy X HD Remastered, I’ve got my Vita yesterday and I’m one step closer from my new PS4!
    Great Early Drop Ryan! Cheers!

  • Sonicfan11589

    FFX/X-2 HD Remaster!!! CAN NOT WAIT!!! Less than 48 hours to go for me. Someone on 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).

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

  • UltimatoRaul

    When it comes out Borderlands 2 for the Vita?

  • Sonicfan11589

    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.

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

  • anti-altair16

    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
      Ryan Clements

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

  • Sonicfan11589

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

    • Ryan Clements
      Ryan Clements

      I used to co-host a podcast called Podcast Beyond. It was the catchphrase. ;)

  • NeoGuardian86

    lots of goodies this week!

    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!

    big haul for me!

  • Finally confirmation that FF X|X-2 HD Remaster is coming digitally!! So excited!!!


    infamous is here (in a pretty amazing week nonetheless)

  • hey Ryan Clement, do you know what time does we download Infamous Second son this Friday ? 12:00am PST or EST ?

  • Sonicfan11589

    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.

  • Winscar_Shinobi

    Any idea if final fantasy 10 and 10-2 will be sold seperately on ps3 psn?

    Want 10 but dont want to spend 40$ for 1 game I want and 1 I dont

    • Ryan Clements
      Ryan Clements

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

  • halfHOLYpaladin

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

    • Ryan Clements
      Ryan Clements

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

  • Sonicfan11589

    @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.

  • @23 (Winscar_Shinobi)

    No they will not be sold separately.

  • No pre-order for Ground Zeroes on PS4?

  • @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!

  • 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.

  • Sonicfan11589

    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

  • 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.

  • guyminsberghe

    Will FF X/X2 HD have french texts?

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

  • I’m going to be soooooo poor after this week. But it’s worth it!

  • Unit68matthew


  • 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.

  • Seeing_Red_Again

    inFamous: Second Son, baby! The reason I bought a PS4 at launch!

  • SmokeAdellic

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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

  • 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. :(

  • Luftrausers looks sick.

  • I really hope they update the store early.

  • PrimeroIncognito

    @ 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

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

  • Metal Gear!? It can’t be!

  • boomstickbhg

    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?
