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!

Why is ffx remaster still not available for preorder on NA PSN?

Ahhh.. Jonesing for Ground Zeroes…

Disappointing for the PS Vita, I wanted to care about this drop, I really did.

Guimace said:

March 16th, 4:50 pm

I hope Final Fantasy does really well! Got my copy preordered, simply can’t wait.

XxMalfoyXx said:

March 16th, 4:52 pm

Yes been waiting for the final fantasy x/x2 hd release since I heard about it way back in 2011 final fantasy x/x2 are my favorites from the series I will be buying digital I can’t freaking wait I am so very excited.

AwRy108 said:

March 16th, 5:20 pm, is this week’s update actually going to go live on the correct day? Also, can PS4 owners pre-load InFamous Second Son?

neuropunk said:

March 16th, 5:33 pm

Hope the FFX collection are available separately. More interested in the sequel since i don’t have that on PS2, kinda sick of FFX also. Hope FFX-2 isn’t as linear as FFX but I think it probably is.

XxMalfoyXx said:

March 16th, 5:42 pm

@neuropunk facebook final fantasy x/x2 hd are only available in a combo pack for the ps3 and the ps vita and on the PlayStation store digitally.

viceforce said:

March 16th, 5:54 pm

I got Final Fantasy X HD collection Remaster and MGSV Ground Zeros. Final Fantasy X never looked so much beautiful and Ground Zeros is amazing. Like playing a action packed movie on the PS4.

XxMalfoyXx said:

March 16th, 5:54 pm

Another question I know tomorrow is Monday but will the digital version of final fantasyx hd go live on the PlayStation store at midnight when it becomes tuesday?

neuropunk said:

March 16th, 5:57 pm

@110 can’t figure out which Facebook page and what post it is.

Has it been officially confirmed? Because people said the same thing about the Symphonia collection, but I ended up not having to buy the garbage sequel. Also, even if only available as a bundle at launch, doesn’t mean they won’t someday be available for purchase separately.

D-Squad3 said:

March 16th, 6:00 pm

Getting both Ground Zeroes and Second Son!

XxMalfoyXx said:

March 16th, 6:13 pm

Yes neuropunk they will be released in a combo pack only on ps3 vita and ps store digital download.

NextLevelAI said:

March 16th, 6:14 pm

Can someone please tell me why we still can’t pre-order MGS: GZ on the PS4? This is killing me!

Why does Infamous come out on Friday when everything gets released on Tuesday? I pre-ordered it on PSN but if it gets released early in stores I would be kind of pissed.

Nabetes said:

March 16th, 7:21 pm

Why i can’t pre-order mgsgz on my ps4 but can on ps3

hahpurr said:

March 16th, 7:25 pm

Infamous. Finally. This is a game that Sony actually deserves a pat on the back over.

raiden_setsuna said:

March 16th, 7:29 pm

Is the Vita FF X2 a download voucher or is it on the card, like MGS 2 & 3?

XxMalfoyXx said:

March 16th, 7:33 pm

Raiden it is a download voucher for x2.

neuropunk said:

March 16th, 7:40 pm

“+ XxMalfoyXx on March 16th, 2014 at 6:13 pm said:
Yes neuropunk they will be released in a combo pack only on ps3 vita and ps store digital download.”

That is what they said about Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, yet I only bought Symphonia stand alone for $20. I will bet that even if not available for purchase separately at release, they probably will be at least one day.

XxMalfoyXx said:

March 16th, 8:01 pm

Maybe someday but it has been confirmed by square enix that it will not be sold separately right now. And maybe it never will be.

Big_Dog_Golfer said:

March 16th, 8:23 pm

I already have Stealth for PS Vita. do I still have to pay for the PS4 version or do I get it as well?

Asumos666 said:

March 16th, 9:13 pm

Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster, i can’t wait for it. i couldn’t decide what version to get ps3 or vita so i pre-ordered both

drdre74 said:

March 16th, 9:21 pm

If i leave my PS4 on standby mode will Infamous download automatically since i pre order it? Why was there no pre order for metal Gear on PS4 on the PSN store?

YorlecmNwahs said:

March 16th, 10:39 pm

Soon I shall be Delsin Rowe. Oh yeah!

MrSignal said:

March 16th, 11:22 pm

Oh please, the odds of the store being delayed twice in one month are stupidly high.
Like Vegas sensing a few easy marks and putting up tempting odds.

A good couple of questions might be about possible sales extensions, maybe some requests for status updates on specific titles.
Like Borderlands 2 for the Vita.
Maybe some more info on future indie developer sales.

SYRAPH said:

March 16th, 11:38 pm

If I buy Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes (PS4) on the 18th, will that count towards the $10 credit promotion? I would buy it right now, but you guys don’t have the ps4 version up for preorder.

Ahh.. I wish J-Star could be on the US PSN Store

I guess I will just purchase mine on the Japanese PSN store.

neuropunk said:

March 17th, 2:01 am

Have yet to see any official confirmation of it being a digital bundle. It’s stupid not to sell them separate. More people would buy them separately than paying for only 1 game they want.

Guess I can’t blame you for not linking proof, since you can’t post links here. i have yet to see official proof, but we’ll know for certain on Tuesday.

Why isn’t the game in the PS4 playstation store its in the PS3 one

ArrantFlame said:

March 17th, 5:51 am

Ryan, just wondering when i will be able to digitally download Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes from Playstation Network on the Playstation 4?

mastorofpuppetz said:

March 17th, 7:03 am

Finally some ps4 games, Infamous looks sick, can’t wait, but going to be hard to peel myself away from Dark Souls 2 what an amazing game.

Megulito said:

March 17th, 7:22 am

Hey Clements,
A fellow beyonder needs your help. I used to be able to purchase stuff on psn via the website. I am not home often to be on my playstation, because of the work I do, but I still like buying games especially when they are on sale. Can you or Steimer help and or tell me why? Scoop?!

The icons for adding to the cart or buying a game disappear once I log in. Scoop?!

I think enough people have asked that this question needs an answer:


SYRAPH said:

March 17th, 7:30 am

Megulito, try another browser and see if they show up or not. If they do, then it’s something related to the browser you’re using (maybe cache, cookies or some other temporary files).

Catcher_BR said:

March 17th, 7:42 am

Any chance of releasing second son digital on Tuesday ? lots of people already have the retail copy, spoiling everywhere. At least for those who pre-orded.

SYRAPH said:

March 17th, 7:46 am

Catcher_BR – That won’t be fair to the retail preorder folks then. The retail copies that have leaked, aren’t widespread, from the indication, maybe less than a 1000 people have gotten their hands on them, which isn’t a lot when you consider the number of people interested in the game. Either get rid of the retail street date (and release the digital version on tuesday) or stick with the friday release date for both versions.

Hopefully no issues with the store this week. :) Anyway, excited for Infamous and I don’t even have a PS4 yet!

KILLED_by_ZACK said:

March 17th, 10:25 am

I’m really getting sick of having to buy retail copies of games because Sony doesn’t let us know when a game will be available digitally. Day 1 Digital on the PS4 store still shows COD as first on the list… then shows The Order- a game that doesn’t even have a release date! But Tomb Raider Definitive had no heads up on the store to assure me I didn’t need to order a physical copy to have it on day 1, and now the same has happened with Metal Gear Ground Zeroes. It’s time to get your act together Sony!

Welmosca said:

March 17th, 10:52 am

Hmm…Ninja Gaiden Z is already releasing….I really hope for a demo.Luftrausers sure looks interesting and Stealth Inc. “Ultimate Edition”…oh my…this is some bulls***…and Ground Zeroes hahaha…that game is a joke…I’ll be looking forward to see Ground Zeroes for free in the IGC…it’ll come eventually.

That Second Son,damn I wanna play that game…but I would need a PS4 for that ha.

Welmosca said:

March 17th, 10:58 am

@ 84 MAYHAMM – Hey man…it is the demo…and you have to pay $20 for it.

Infamous Second Son is why I got my PS4. Kinda on the fence about Ground Zeroes
