The Drop

With the industry-wide excitement of E3 cooling, we have another list of games coming to the world of PlayStation this week. Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark arrives on PS4 and PS3, alongside Valiant Hearts: The Great War.

Celebrating three decades of Transformers greatness, Rise of the Dark Spark features more than forty playable characters across both the single-player campaign and the co-op Escalation mode. The dev team behind Rise of the Dark Spark has made an effort to bridge the generations of Transformers together, linking the worlds of Generation One, the Paramount Pictures films, and also Activision’s Cybertron titles.

Meanwhile, Ubisoft is readying the launch of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, a stylized adventure game for PS4 and PS3. In Valiant Hearts, players witness the intersecting lives, loves, and tragedies of several characters involved in the horror of World War I. See how these stories intertwine, and how brave men and women fought for something larger than themselves.

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

    More than meets the eye.

  • BulletTooth228

    Hey Sony would you please give a concrete answer on what’s going to happen to the people that pre-ordered the Last of Us to support Naughty Dog and paid $60 and now the price is $50 everywhere, including PSN, are we getting $10 credit or are you just gonna keep that extra money?

    There’s a lot of articles saying a lot of things about this, an official answer would be great. Don’t pull a MS on us.

    @2 contact Sony as others have and they should refund it to you.

  • Sonicfan11589

    Hope u guys have more PS1 Classics planned.


    Mostly Not my style, although valiant hearts looks interesting.

  • Excited for the new transformers game, but whats the reason why it mixes the movie and the game character designs? Is this like a mix of the two universes coming together or what?

  • wow that’s A LOT of games on each console (PSP, Vita, PS3, PS4)

    I will definitely get Transformer on ps4 and maybe XBLAZE on vita, but other games are also intriguing

  • we need Valiant Hearts: The Great War for the vita!!!

  • snakeeyes211

    @2 @6 My friend contacted Sony and they told him they were not going to give them a refund as it is part of the pre-order agreement

  • Sonicfan11589

    Sorry to ask this, but i hope you guys update the PS4 to allow external hard drives to be compatible since i am starting run out of space on my PS4.

      Thanks for the post, Sonicfan. I’ll pass this feedback along to the team.

  • 6 Vita games?

  • V8_R3L3NTL3SS_1

    The people on here that complain on a blog post about no vita games , what are you people talking about I’m no vita fan but damn I see vita games every week ,and if there are 3 or 4 released ur then not satisfied about what I is released . How about put that vita up to your face and just play the damn thing and shut it about vita is dead.

  • V-Angelus01

    @14 vita is not dead. Just greatly ignored

  • Please, bring us more ps2 classics like haunting ground and silent hill 4, both games are awesome and they deserve to be part of psn. Listen to your costumers.

  • Valiant Hearts!! Day 1.

    And Rorona looks interesting, but $40 is too steep…gonna hold out for a sale

  • stalemate666

    @ BulletTooth228 Why did you preorder that’s so dumb just wait for the game to come out. Or if you are going to pre-order do it on amazon where there’s no money down.

  • rafael_martines

    X-Blaze will be Cross-Buy?

  • stalemate666

    @V8_R3L3NTL3SS_1 How many vita games are from Sony? 0. Unless it’s a really old port of a game already ported to ps3 (ie the collections that 2 years after ps3)

  • Good games on all three platforms. This is an seriously good week.

  • Would love to see some PS1 Classics.

    Megaman Legends 1 and 2
    Vandal Hearts 1 and 2
    Jade Cocoon
    Die Hard Trilogy
    Suikoden 2

    Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core for PSP

  • Hi @Ryan Clements,Will Z-Run PsVita be free?Im asking because my friends told me that is free-to-play in Europe and UK.Please Respond to me back.Thanks.

  • By the way, Kemco on Android had the same game as End of Serenity (above) as End of Aspiration.
    I wonder why the name different

  • @andyscout you mean 5 Vita ports and 1 IOS/Android looking game.
    @V8_R3L3NTL3SS_1 you see ports and indies,nothing exclusive for Vita.

  • hawjboi2009

    hey Ryan Clement, any info about Madden NFL 15 and Assassin Creed Unity available for pre-order in PSN Store ? be sure to send my feedback to PSN Store department

  • It’s official, Sony is refunding the pre-order money for the Last Of Us. Stop listening to people who don’t know what they’re talking about.


  • Mercenary09

    @12 Maybe try again as it is even stated here you should get a refund

    Adam Boyes even said you should get a refund within 5-7 days.

  • more vita love please?

  • ch8882002usnavy

    I’ve been looking forward to trying Valiant Hearts for a while now. It looks to be a great game. Also looking forward to the Resogun update this week.

  • Dr_Struebinator

    Is there any info about a summer sale on PSN, similar to the one on Steam right now? I know that last year there was one, but can we expect one this year as well? Thanks for the info!

  • ATELIER RORONA PLUS yeah!!! <3

  • I’ma let you finish, but Valiant Hearts deserves all of your attention this week!

  • spacemonkeyham

    The Vita is great for fans of Japanese games, no doubt about it.

  • Any idea when we can download Resogun’s update? Been waiting for it and I want it now lol.

    Please and thanks.

  • Don’t be evil. Refund the $10 for The Last of Us. It’s going to leave a bad taste going forward for people to pre-order / pre-load if this isn’t handled correctly.

  • Looks like my wallet is safe for another week. I’ve kinda been wanting to try the Raidou games though, but I still have SMT Nocturne and Digital Devil Saga 1&2 to finish yet. I might get it when I beat those.

  • Retry_Rabbit

    @2 & anyone else that was complaining about the preorder price of The Last of Us for ps4:

  • @2 @6 – tweet from Adam Boyes:

    @amboyes: @klownboots @PlayStation @Naughty_Dog @AskPlayStation @yosp you should get a $10 refund in the next 5-7 days

  • Hi Ryan, can you say if the ps3 version of sniper elite 3 will be coming to the store later in the week?

  • JosephDUDEhola1

    For the one’s asking about The Last of Us Remastered $10 refund, here’s a respond.

  • People hungry for more Vita love should look into preordering Senran Kagura. This is my favorite game ever and I’m so excited that XSeed is localizing it so I can play it all over again in a language I actually comprehend. Don’t miss Shinovi Versus!

  • JosephDUDEhola1

    @Letters2Kay Yeah I agree with you. Senran Kagura is a awesome Vita game, can’t wait to grab my limited physical Edition :D

  • Rezolution77

    @2 So did anything get looked into?

    Nothing from me this week. Thought maybe End of Serentity (Aspiration on youtube), but bleh…

    That sale on International Golf was good, now if we could get a sale on DLC.

  • @44
    tweet from Adam Boyes:

    @amboyes: @klownboots @PlayStation @Naughty_Dog @AskPlayStation @yosp you should get a $10 refund in the next 5-7 days

  • Could you guys add a user wishlist to the store? I’d like to be able to track games that I want to get at some point but often forget about, like these late PSP releases.
