The Drop

Dark fantasy quests and Cold War operations join together in a massive week of gaming, with tons of new games joining the PlayStation family this Tuesday.

Malthael, the Angel of Death, has invaded the world of Sanctuary in Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4 and PS3. Wade into battle with the new Crusader class, and tackle Act V in one of the most iconic action RPGs in gaming history. Uncover legendary loot, unlock powerful spells, equip awe-inspiring weaponry, and horde mountains of gold in Blizzard’s latest chapter in the Diablo series. And for those that already began a quest on the original Diablo III on PS3, carry over hero progress into Reaper of Souls without missing a step.

But that’s just the beginning. Keep the world’s super powers at bay in Counterspy — a stylized action game set in the Cold War — on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. Infiltrate enemy positions, use wit and cunning, and keep the governments of the world from tearing each other to pieces.

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

    Hi!

  • Snipers-Origon

    Diablo 3…. or nah

  • Snipers-Origon

    Oh and BEYOND!

  • Mega-Sackman

    Hey guys, pre-load is not working, i guess you already know that by now. Any idea when it’ll be available? (I pre-orderes Diablo III but people says that they can’t pre-load PvZ Garden Warfare either).

    • Ryan Clements
      Ryan Clements

      Hey thanks for the note! I don’t have access to this information but I’ll try and look into it. Cheers.

  • ExtremeGamer

    What happened to preloading? Games were starting to preload on Thursday’s before, now it’s changed to 2 days and as of yet, Diablo 3 and PvZ still haven’t had the preload option enabled. Very disappointing if this is going away already.

  • cleversignin

    Diablo will steal yet another 2-300 hours of my life.

  • italodancemp3

    Nice all Vita’s games are mine.

  • ossiecastro5

    What a great week with a great selection of titles, especially Diablo 3 and Tales of Xillia 2. So many good games are coming out now and it’s not even the Fall yet. So much anticipation.

  • hawjboi2009

    hi Ryan Clement, oh yes two games to getting this week is Diablo 3 and Counterspy for ps4 version because i already pre-order both in PSN Store.

  • I’ve been a fan, stalking you since 2010.

      Ryan Clements

      Awwww, thank you for your support! I’m not sure about Hollow Fragment… I checked the official site but it’s not clear. >_<

  • We need deals for AAA PS4 games like infamous second son killzone knack…. :(

  • YoRunThatChain

    Definitely grabbing SAO Hollow Fragment.

    Already had Tales of Xillia 2 for a month, and refuse to buy localized Namco Bandai games until they have Dual Audio.

  • is anybody buying PVZ on PS3? I’m asking because this game is massively Multiplayer

  • CoffeePenguinHD

    Diablo 3! <3

  • Mercenary09

    I’m getting Diablo 3 and Plants vs zombies on PS4. Hotline Miami PS4 since I already own it on the other systems and Counterspy. Also Ryan is The Last Tinker really a retail title or is that a mistake?

    • Ryan Clements
      Ryan Clements

      Hey! Great catch, thank you. That was a copy/paste error. It’s a digital PS4 game.

  • AmericanNinja1

    Hello there sir Ryan,

    • Ryan Clements
      Ryan Clements

      Hello! I have no news other than what I have presented in the post! Thank you for stopping in, though. ^_^

  • Arcade Archives?! Please tell me more of these will be coming? Price Points? I loved me some Rygar back in the day lol. Just watched the Game Grumps play through it a few weeks back. MEMORIES. HAH!

  • JosephDUDEhola1

    What’s the date, & price for Sword Art Online and Counter Spy?

  • Thank you sir.

    Keep up the good work! :3

  • You forgot bloodborne,you guys always forget bloodborne. Please send it out already.

  • allegretto2500

    The word is there are technical issues that need fixing with preload.

  • Mercenary09

    Ah ok thanks for the correction Ryan because if it was a retail title I would get it on disk instead. I’m very interested in it as there just isn’t enough 3D platformers anymore. Also that arcade game came out of nowhere. Never heard of it.

    • Ryan Clements
      Ryan Clements

      Yeah, thanks again for pointing out the error, I apologize for the confusion.

  • I pre ordered the tales of xillia 2 LE. Cant wait to get my hands on it.

  • dragonmagician

  • Hi Ryan,

    on the PlayStation site and on the store Plants vs Zombies and Diablo III says It will be able to predownload on 8/18/2014; However, There lots of people who say its able to be pre downloaded today. I want to predownload my games today. Could I please have this answer?

  • SeanStrange

    Getting The Last Tinker this week. It looks like a lot of fun, that’s for sure!

  • Rygar? Really? Are you serious? This is AMAZING!!!!!!

  • yowzagabowza

    Yknow what would be great? If you put the price of the games on this post! Think about it: we would all know how much each game costs, and we could decide if we want to buy ot or not! Much better than waiting all day (east coast) for the update on Tuesday, only to be disappointed. I see no real reason not to! Cmon, go for it! For the players!

  • “Arcade Archives Rygar” OMG

    I bought it with my japanese account, because it was my favorite arcade game ever… and the game is awesome on PS4… run perfect. I assume it will cost 4,99 or something… I hope sometime publisher upload Ghost & Goblins…

  • By the way… great week: Tales of Xillia 2, Diablo III and Plants vs Zombies for me. :)

  • Sonicfan11589

    4 games I’m getting on Tuesday. CAN’T WAIT!
    PvZ: Garden Warfare
    Diablo 3 (My first Diablo game)
    The Last Tinker: City of Colors
    Hotline for Miami (Which I think i’m getting for free thanks to PS PLUS)

    One of the best “Drops” in my opinion. Glad this happening before September before I go back to school. :)

  • @tao707 And it’s a shame if they don’t… :(

  • Beyond!

  • flatliner718

    What’s the news on Minecraft? Any idea on what’s up with Certification

  • TotalHenshin

    3 Drops in a row with no PS1 or PS2 titles? That’s cold, Clements.

  • @25
    Noone wants that garbage but little kids. why would you want to play a 8bit game on such powerful hardware? play it on the pc or last gen. plus they already announced that. so why even bother? I would much rather MP3 and AVI playback. but its people like you preventing this. hopefully they get on it as Microsoft is doing that now. and they will start losing sales.

    theyre adding stream share before mp3 playback. what a joke. hopefully I dont have to wait 4 months before I can play music while gaming. and no, im not signing up for that music BS.

  • happydude633

    Tales of Xillia 2 here I come! I can’t wait. I’ve been waiting since I completed the first one (twice) last year.

  • My hype meter for SAO is off the chart right now. Too bad there’s no physical release, still going to buy it day 1.

  • So, any updates on PSP/PS1 Vita Compatibility? Or at least an explanation for what’s taking so long with it?

  • I still can’t download Hohokum on PS4… Just says purchased where the download button should be… Worried this might happen with Counter Spy too…

  • personausermike

    Hi, any chance of Rygar going on PS3 soon?

  • Zer0Fighter2121

    Xilia 2, Diablo 3 AND Counterspy! Looks like Christmas and my birthday arrived WAY early this year B)

  • grimlin_reaper

    Pickin up rygar asap. Lets set up the next rygar from PS2 to PS4 :)

  • I cant wait for Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment

  • Justsomedrunk
