The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 10/14

Ryan Clements's Avatar Posted by Senior Specialist, SIEA Social Media

The Drop

This week, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami’s latest effort in horror comes to PS4 and PS3, courtesy of The Evil Within. As Detective Sebastian Castellanos, fight for survival amidst a deranged world filled with vile creatures and deadly ghouls. Navigate a city gone wrong, where every scavenged bullet and patch of shadow can save Sebastian’s life. Upgrade his abilities, endure horrific visions, and unravel the evil forces plaguing Crimson City.

But if you scare a little too easily, don’t worry: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launches this week on PS3. Witness the origin story of Handsome Jack with four new Vault Hunters and a seemingly endless stream of sweet, sweet loot. Use the low gravity of Pandora’s moon to gain the high ground, and obliterate your enemies with new laser weapons and ice bullets. And Claptrap. Always Claptrap.

Oh, bonus news: Minecraft is coming to PS Vita. For a full list of new games hitting PlayStation this week, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

Biggest day on PlayStation in a long time.

In addition to all this, you also have the release of the PlayStation TV in NA. AND you have PS Now coming to the Vita and PS TV. PLUS you have Minecraft Vita, Nidhogg, and Sleeping Dogs for PS4??!! It’s just too much.

Oh, and love the new The Drop logo.Very nice.

Pre ordered The Evil Within for PS4, fingers crossed that it will not be a turd. Going to go pre order Boarderlands the pre sequel as well. Like the million other people out there, gonna roll a Clap trap and A Wilhelm

TheGrimHeaper said:

October 12th, 8:36 am

Excited for Senran Kagura but, of course, Amazon is sending it to me days later. :/

samiamiamsam said:

October 12th, 8:36 am

Duck Dynasty looks so bad that it might be good. lol

Djent_Maven said:

October 12th, 8:44 am

Evil Within Pre ordered. Cant wait for that. For anyone wanting to know it is a midnight EST release on digital. I do wish Borderlands was current gen :( if it is really good I will get it for my PC but would have loved a PS4 version for co-op and trophies.

VanguardFate said:

A lot of stuff next week.

Drive Club is the most broken game ever produced from an SCE studio. Online doesn’t work at all, chronic messages that bug the user while playing standalone, and features that were meant to be a draw to the game are constantly hindered.

I love how the game feels and drives, but even with the full product I still feel like I’m playing a demo with a half baked AI. Why didn’t Sony stress test this game like Uncharted Multiplayer or Killzone Multiplayer? What happened to that Sony drive for quality in Sony games? Granted this more of an exception than the Rule, but I feel like Sony really dropped the ball with this one. I’m kind of hoping those of us who invested early will get some sort of consolidation for buying a broken product.

Wow! Great week for the psvita! Minecraft, niddhog and senran kagura shinovi vs! Omg I need money now!! XD

October 12th, 8:51 am

Hey, Ryan,

we got noone else to ask…

When can we finally expect to get long promissed Oddworld New n Tasty (crossbuy) for ps3 and vita?
PS3/Vita version were said to come “right after” ps4 release.

Also, Teslagrad was said to be submitted for approval to sony some 3 months ago, ps3 version only. Still no game.
Soon ps4 and vita versions will be done. I hope ps3 users dont have to wait for other platform versions to get finished.

How long does it take to get those games out if they are ready and waiting?

Thanks.

October 12th, 8:55 am

Yay for Senran Kagura.

Though I wish I had a PS3 for Presequel and Tears to Tiara 2. Oh well

wongf808 said:

October 12th, 8:57 am

I’m thinking if I should get Sleeping Dogs for the PS4 since I already have it for the PS3. I enjoyed the game on the PS3 immensely.

Mr_TuxedoPants said:

Is the walking dead season one going to have a platinum?

iXi_LAWM9STER said:

October 12th, 9:05 am

Will lone survivor be a cross-buy?

Macello said:

October 12th, 9:05 am

I can’t get an answer for this out of Ask Playstation or on the blogpost, but the FAQ for the PlayStation TV says that it supports two-way party chat while in remote play even though the vita does not. Since I’ve asked into places and then ignored, it would be a pretty big breach of consumer trust if that was a typo and had not been addressed. Can you ask someone about that?

@22

The original release of The Walking Dead Season 1 had a Platinum, there’s no reason for the PS4 one not to.

yowzagabowza said:

October 12th, 9:08 am

First of all, prices, please. So silly not to have them.
Second, Pac man 2 is digital only?

wongf808 said:

October 12th, 9:24 am

I’m thinking about getting Sleeping Dogs for the PS4, but I already have the game for the PS3 and I’m really wondering if it’s worth it. Also, I’m excited for Senran Kagura.

Since BL2 is on Vita, i was hopping the portable would enjoy the PRe Sequel…

Please sony do something ( and please patch BL2 as there is still many bugs )

GodlessPagan said:

October 12th, 9:30 am

Since when is Solitaire a better board game than Go? Scratch that. Since when is Solitaire a board game at all?

GodlessPagan said:

October 12th, 9:32 am

Anyway, Nidhogg is the only thing this week that interests me. Good thing too because I need all the money I can save for all those games coming in November.

djsaiyan said:

October 12th, 9:43 am

Borderlands and The Evil Within for me.

Might jump on Minecraft PS3+PS4 upgrade just so I can get it on my PS4/Vita, but that’s not urgent and it’s getting to be a very busy time of year.

DrStupid said:

Hoping for some Pinball Arcade DLC on PS4 this week.

Is the mobile site of the PS Blog dead? I haven’t been able to access it for quite a while…before it was automatic and I could always switch back and forth. Now, there is no option for the mobile page, and it does not go automatically…Can someone help?

Xenon1313 said:

maxvtec said:

October 12th, 10:19 am

Where is DriveClub PS+ edition?

After this horrible experience I hope now you make the full game available to us not just the demo, or at least give us more tracks!!!

Hymanator said:

October 12th, 10:21 am

Nidhogg is such a great game. Play it locally with a group of friends and everyone will be screaming and laughing for hours.

SiLENT_BMS said:

Hi Can’t wait for Sleeping Dogs (first time playing) on PS4 along with The Evil Within, some questions:
-The pre-load isn’t happening for the above two games I have mentioned.

-Is Lone Survivor Cross-Buy?

Sonicfan11589 said:

October 12th, 10:36 am

Also if u can mention it, is the Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate 2014 Halloween DLC this week? I hope so.
