The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 7/22/2014
The Drop

Update: Ratchet & Clank Collection on PS Vita will launch on 7/29 as opposed to 7/22. We apologize for the inconvenience.

This week is one of triumphant returns for old heroes, as Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty bursts into the world of PlayStation.

Based on the PlayStation classic, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty follows the dark adventures of Abe as he struggles to escape the meat grinders and trace the heritage of his people. New ‘n’ Tasty was rebuilt to feature enhanced visuals, improved audio, and even new sections of quirky puzzle platforming.

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

  • So…no one is going to comment on the stealth release of Ratchet and Clank? What about the lack of physical release…?

  • IXxHIJACKERxXI

    No Odd world for the PS3 ???

  • MrPonuraski

    #Suikoden2onPSStore

    Waiting since 2008 (Suikoden I as a PS1 classic release). Don’t make us wait any longer.

    #Suikoden2onPSStore

  • Can we get a simple yes or no if Ratchet is going to get a retail release?

  • I just canceled my import on the UK version of the Ratchet and Clank Trilogy for PS Vita. It was supposed to arrive between Tuesday and Thursday. I’m hoping for cross-buy.

  • SeanStrange

    Wish we got some TCG’s for the PS4. I’d be on board for that!

  • boomstickbhg

    Wow, since the IGC was gutted and Plus/Sales posts stopped being put up on Monday (thanks for no more warning, the exact opposite of what we’ve asked for, for years) the Sony Blog staff has basically completely abandoned any attempts at responding to their customers.

    Guess the blog is basically dead at some point, you could at least tell us where to go for real Sony communication, or just admit you don’t care about your customers.

  • PrimeroIncognito

    @ gloomstickbhg

    1. The IGC wasn’t gutted, it was modified. For the better. Things evolve as time passes. Adapt or die.

    2. Weekly update posts every Monday are no longer necessary because the monthly post reveals all. Sales are posted on Tuesdays, when they actually become available. The process has been refined. It’s better now.

    3. There was plenty of “warning”. Just because you didn’t see it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

    4. If you really believe Sony doesn’t care about their customers, why do you keep sticking around? Just leave already.

  • Where are the PSone & PS2 classics?

  • SHOCKW4VExX

    YES!!! so exciting. 2 games i actually really need to buy for Vita. I love having more excuses to play my vita. I will be getting Ratchet and Clank first, then oddworld, but i have a feeling that PS Plus will give us Odd world at some point so maybe ill wait it out.

  • + cortiz2092000
    I second that. I don’t understand how they are so oblivious. lol. Do they really not think we can tell that they are trying to make us pay 100$ for the 64gb that we have to import? I don’t mind digital being an “option”, but mandatory? Sony needs to learn how to be a business. I can’t buy your product if you won’t LET me. They are just screwing themselves out of money with the push of digital, but the unyielding greediness of their memory cards. This is why my small circle of friends are going to be the only ones with Vita’s. Good job. Failed again.

  • Will the Atelier Rorona+ DLC be on sale separately from the actual game?

  • Squadren_64

    Where’s Planetside? Ugh! -_-

  • Ironlantern92

    Digital only for Ratchet, or will there be a physical copy?

  • I really hope the R&C Vita Collection gets good reviews (esp. no frame rate issues)!

  • Thank you so much for Ratchet and Clank on the vita. Bummer it’s not a physical version, but I’m still psyched!

  • ratchetdude231

    could you guys please look into adding Assassin’s creed unity on PSN so I can pre order it

  • darkhairwarrior

    DAMN IT! Why couldn’t Ratchet & Clank or Oddworld come out on a different day?! I can’t afford both!! D:

  • Will anymore PSP and PSone Classics be made available on the Vita store?

  • I heavily endorse post # 39 and would like to include
    #DarkCloud-series

    Would buy all those games in a heartbeat.

  • Rachet and Clank nice!!!!

    Also please more PS1 CLASSICS ON VITA. Speficially Crash Bandicoot and Spyro out for North AMerican PSVITA Users!!!

  • Where is Suikoden 2???

  • Bigmoose1985

    Dark souls 2 dlc tuesday

  • I’m pretty sour with you guys on the lack of communication about the R&C Collection on Vita.

    People asked everywhere they could about information concerning a US release and no answer was to be found, not even an acknowledgment. Finally, I ran over to the EU blog and finally was given an answer. A staff member informed me it was only an EU release at this time – Fine.

    Seeing the game is coming out on tuesday is a little upsetting. I’m sure these aren’t decisions made over night, so why be quiet about its release until 2 days before it drops? People are looking to ya’ll for honest answers and you become tight lipped because it doesn’t fit into some genius zero marketing plan?

    Whatever reason you have for keeping us in the dark… Sounds, well, dishonest.

    I don’t mean any disrespect. I love you guys, I’ll always be a big PlayStation fan – but this was the first time I ever felt really let down when any number of easy fixes could have been made. But hey, we made a pretty big stink about it on neogaf for a few weeks there.

    Of course I will still be dropping the cash for the collection on Tuesday lol

    Best,
    JakeNoseIt

  • illtornworld

    PayStation, Sony, why no physical release? we been waiting forever and EU gets it weeks before us, and we dont even get a physical copy? thi sucs! feel like we have been shafted atm. i bet its 40.00 and 6/7gbs! :-/ all i have is a 4gb memory card please release a physical copy next week! </3

  • Good news for Vita this week. I’m sure I’ll find out elsewhere but I would’ve liked to know which R&C games were in the collection. Oddworld: New and Tasty looks above and beyond what you can usually expect from classic remakes so I’m especially interested in that title.

  • Wow…
    Jak
    Sly
    Metal Gear
    GoW
    All got physical releases, not only did no one announce this for NA, now it doesn’t even have a physical release… really. I imported a 64GB memory card and it made nothing better because every game now is pretty much digital only, I’m going to need to quit soon at this rate. Can’t believe Ratchet is getting this treatment smh

  • Whether R&C gets a physical release I guess is not that big of a deal… at least we’re getting it… however what I’m wondering has to do with Oddworld and it only being listed as a PS4 release this week??

    It’s fine if Oddworld will be coming out next week for the Vita, but at least say so. Because I thought, scratch that, I know I remember seeing/reading multiple times that it would come out on both the PS4 & Vita at the same time.

    I’m sorry if my questions along with the many others makes it look like we’re all just a bunch of rude over-demanding gamers, but may be next time if you don’t have all the official release info, then say so… say you don’t know whether we (the US) will be getting just a digital release of R&C OR if we Vita fans will be getting Oddworld a week later than the PS4.

    I think it’s obvious that when you make things more clear you avoid instances like this where you get bombarded with hundreds of similar questions about big game releases and the usual consumer info that’s suppose to go along with them.

  • AizawaYuuichi

    @ zepified: I don’t recall off-hand if they said Oddworld NnT would release on all platforms at the same time, but it was “announced” for all platforms at the same time (compared to Child of Light being announced for Vita AFTER it was already available on PS4).
    According to the website, though > oddworld.com/oddworldgames/new-n-tasty/ < it is Cross-Buy and Cross-Save across all three platforms, so you could buy it for PS4 now and download the Vita version when they finish it. If you want to, of course.

  • MarshMarlou

    Is the future of PS VITA games digital only? Pls. no! I will be really sad :(

  • dkarlowicz10

    Should we be worried about the vita? Ratchet collection got no formal announcement for North America, it seems to be barely mentioned here. And it is a game that many have been waiting for. No mention of physical copy (yes or no). If Sony wants Vita to do better in North America, they have to try better.

  • ThumbsOfSteel74

    Nice to see Oddworld PS4 and R&C Vita being released, even though many would have preferred a physical release for R&C. There may yet be one down the line, so maybe hold off buying for a few weeks just in case. Ask the dev/publisher on Twitter or something, because asking here is clearly useless.

    For those who thought Oddworld would be on other platforms this week, the last relevant post revealed it would not:

    blog.us.playstation.com/2014/07/14/oddworld-new-n-tasty-pre-order-bonuses-detailed/

    PS3 & Vita versions are coming “soon,” and not necessarily at the same time.

    I’ll be picking up Oddworld at some point for PS3. It’s the only system I have, so cross-buy is a non-issue and I don’t care about pre-order bonuses.

  • racing_sloth

    Yay! Only thing is that I have a measly 8GB Memory Card for my Vita, so I’ll have to hold off until news about a physical release. :(

  • Nothing for me this week…but ROGUE LEGACY soon :D

  • DiddyWaDiddy

    Also, Don’t Starve: Reign of Giants expansion is out this week.

  • SanelessOne

    Really hope R&C is cross-buy. I’ll eventually get it on a great deal if it’s at least Cross-Save, but I already have the PS3 version and would like to play it on me vita.

  • Loads of nothing for PSVita;
    European Vita gamers getting pissed over SCEE because of digital-only psn games, clearly a dirty move from sony forcing them into buying more memory cards;

    Rumors have it that Crash and Spyro will show up at Gamescom. sony, as aways, will deny it.
    sony throwing DevKits away and begging for Indies devs to release their games on *ps platforms* to fill the gap -the time AAA game developers need- so that you don’t throw your $400 ps4 away and play indie games while waiting.

    sony.. you’re so full of crap.
    ‘greatness awaits’.

  • Enough with the ports and remasters; let’s get some new, original R&C and J&D games for both the PS4 and Vita.

  • Seems like the store gets worse and worse every week. How about some decent rpg’s or something? Breath of Fire 3 for instance? I keep requesting it, but for whatever reason it’s still not on the store.

  • No retail release for Ratchet Vita? What the heck, guys?! I don’t have the room on my memory card for it! And yes, I have a 32GB card…

  • tommy_deathdoll

    Man, I loved Abe’s Oddysee when it came out on the PS1. Can’t wait to play this again! And Ryan…… BEYOND!!!

  • This just in Ratchet & Clank Collection will be cross buy….only if you live in Europe because we here at Playstation of America value money more than our customers.

  • I honestly don’t mind digital only release of ps vita titles if you make those over expensive proprietary memory cards cheaper or release an micro sd card adapter.

  • #Suikoden2onPSStore + Remmy8199 is right about Breath of Fire III.

    Why isn’t Suikoden 2 as a PS1 Classic on the store, despite so many years of waiting?

    Why isn’t BoFIII on the store? The PSP version was released in the UK ages ago. Please, use the PSN imports procedure and add it to the American PS Store.

    This is all easy, cheap and effective, but we aren’t getting it only because some office workers don’t care about older games. People do care about them. Remember that and stop spamming us with weak-to-mediocre releases week upon week.

  • Obama has actually banned Suikoden 2 from PSN and America as a whole. It’s never going to come out. There was a little-reported executive order to locate and detain people who like Suikoden 2, justified by an obscure clause in the Constitution that gives the president free rein to act “in the best interests of the internet.”

    Just a heads-up. I agree with you guys that it’s a good game, but I’d stop mentioning it online all the time. It’s only gonna make it easier for them to find you.

  • Duuuuuuuuude…. I was REALLY hoping to get a physical R&C Collection for Vita, so I could have them, Jak and Daxter, and Sly on my Vita to complete my favorite PS2 guys on my Vita. :( That’s a real bummer. I hope you guys end up changing your minds later on.. hopefully soon. And will the digital be cross-buy? I was hoping physical would include it too unlike Europe but now I don’t have to worry about that apparently……

  • @Chip1010: Suikoden 2 is not a *good game*. Suikoden 2 is in the top 10 JRPGs ever made. It’s not even a case of rating it because it attained a legendary status and it’s beyond any ratings now.

    This is the age of silly indies and war shooters, but it doesn’t change the fact that there are JRPG fans out there waiting to play this game, either one more time via a modern gaming service or for the first time because they were too young to get it before and now eBay/Amazon scalpers raised its price to stupid levels.

  • I think the earliest we would see duomo den 2 on psn if we ever get it would be August 19 because it’s suikoden day 2014

  • Kai_Shenlong

    I think this is hilarious, and a good look into the mind of the internet in general. People have been asking for the Ratchet and Clank Collection in the US for a while now, and they’re complainging now that we’re getting it.

    “Hey, they’re releasing a game we’ve been asking for for weeks now! THIS MAKES ME ANGRY!”

  • @AizawaYuuichi Well, thanx for the reply. At least someone here noticed what I noticed. Like I said, I could have sworn they’ve said for a long time now that Oddworld would be coming to all systems (cross-buy) on the same date… and I’m usually not wrong about release dates of games I’m REALLY looking forward to. But, maybe I’m wrong about this, or I guess they could have changed the Vita’s version release date and I didn’t notice??

    Either way, I predict that there’s going to be a lot more pissed off people tomorrow when they find out that they can’t play Oddworld on their Vita’s… and who knows for how long since there is no current date given (like you said, they’ll say “soon”)?? The reason I’m saying that there will be a LOT of mad people tomorrow is because despite my posting about this concern, it seems people still don’t notice that it states, “PS4 – digital” next to the games listing above (it usually says PS4/PS3/Vita – digital). Even going on 50 posts I still see people above talking about how they’re hyped to play Oddworld on their Vita’s by tomorrow… I don’t know, maybe I’m missing something??
