The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 9/22/2015

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

The Drop

What defines a human mind? What defines an artificial one? And what horrors emerge when you push them both to the breaking point? This week, sci-fi horror game Soma launches on PS4. Don’t close your eyes…

Fueled by real-world science and abstract philosophies, Soma drops players into a twisted labyrinth of unspeakable horrors, broken thoughts, and creatures of unnatural origin. For gamers that want the latest in first-person horror storytelling, look no further.

And for those that scare easily (present company included), try the innovative platforming challenges in Extreme Exorcism, or the old-school dungeon-crawling in Heroes of Loot. For a full look at this week’s lineup, read on. And enjoy the Drop!

    …and I am still waiting for those last few PSP and PSone Classics to be available on my PSVITA #SpyroCrashDarkForces

September 20th, 9:01 am

Wow I’ve been following Afro closely and hadn’t heard anything about whether or not the game was ready to be released or even had a release date so this is very interesting. I’m looking forward to checking out but I gotta admit I’m a little skeptical now I mean the Prototype bundle announced its release the day before too.

SOMA looks awesome. It’s from the people who made the Penumbra and Amnesia series, which were horror games done right. I’m glad it’s coming to PS4!

    Ryan Clements said:

    September 20th, 9:07 am

    I’m so excited to not be able to sleep at night…

Thanks for the drop (as usual) Ryan!

    September 20th, 9:09 am

    Wish arcade archives were on vita too.

    Ryan Clements said:

    September 20th, 9:09 am

    Agreed.

Hi Ryan, none for me this tuesday.. i am getting NBA 2k16 this week Friday. hey Ryan, how come you not put NBA 2k16 for Friday on this week ?

    Ryan Clements said:

    September 20th, 9:14 am

    We decided to hold off on listing NBA 2K16 until next weekend, since the 29th is the formal launch day after the early edition comes out for those that want to jump at it ahead of time. Thanks for the note!

    JimmyLSanchez said:

    September 21st, 12:26 am

    “Early Tip Off Edition” means, if you are too lazy to preorder the game, then you can wait til the 29th to play it instead of the 25th for true fans

ZQuestion said:

September 20th, 9:35 am

Bunch of releases this week..
My pick for the week in Digital Only is a three way tie…
Afro Samurai 2, Battle Trivia Knockout and LaserLife

Retail.. Blood Bowl 2!

    hawjboi2009 said:

    September 20th, 9:36 am

    JimmyLSanchez said:

    September 21st, 12:25 am

    Hey “boi”, no sense trying to tell him not to buy something. He gets everything, and I mean everything. I am getting Blood Bowl II as well.

sealum01 said:

September 20th, 9:41 am

SOMA will be mine! If the price truly is $29, the I’ll pounce on it! I just have to work through my backlog. There are too many great titles to play — and I love it!!

Has Pumped BMX+ been delayed on Vita (and PS3)? Did I miss a blog post on it (genuine question, been away).

Are we not voting for a plus game this month?

DinoCap666 said:

Puzzle star sweep looks interesting; I can’t resist a good puzzle game.

Nothing exciting for me this week. I’ll wait to see what they have on sale or price drops this Tuesday.

CosiestAnimal said:

September 20th, 10:46 am

First time doing this but I’m really anxious if you guys could do a PS2 classics port of Tekken 4, Half-Life or even Timespliters 2. As a long time PlayStation fanatic it would really mean a lot to have those ports on the PlayStation network in PlayStation 2 classics format. Thank You and keep up the Awesome Goodies filled work

pablikenemy79 said:

September 20th, 10:48 am

Why Arcade Archive is not on ps vita jet!?

Also is that true!? Volume, Teslagrad, bastion, Axiom verge … Since there is not a bit of info about those games here in the “PlayStation Blog” i thing those games are cancelled like Gravity Rush 2 is not Comming to vita any more and is Exclusive for the Ps 4…… Thats how Sony shows Vita Love.

I really want Heroes of Loot it look good. I’m not sure about Mahjong Carnival it shouldn’t be release outside of Japan no one knows how to play that game .

Rezolution77 said:

September 20th, 11:09 am

Soma is coming to PC, so no worries there.
The rest do not look worth the advertisement space, other than Afro Samurai.

My poor Vita.
Only decent game in the last couple months that is interesting, is Hyperdimension Neptunia, but not at that price.

Maybe in a few more months then, while I save some money on older titles.
Like Mad Max for less than $20, and while it isn’t great, it definitely isn’t bad at that price.

Rezolution77 said:

September 20th, 11:10 am

Nice to see you are still adding PSone classics though, but, I wish you would listen more to your fans/members.

SOMA is Outlast meets Bioshock, it’s the real deal folks.

We need a “Wish List” in the PS Store.

    stalepie said:

    I agree, and gift giving based on that!

Saving my money this week for lego dimensions. But heroes of loot does catch my eye…

califoreigner said:

September 20th, 12:47 pm

A few interesting looking ones this week. Will be checking out Heroes of Loot and Penarium

lightbr said:

September 20th, 12:55 pm

No Onigiri or Magic Duels yet? Was told that Onigiri PS4 servers would be up on mid september…

    Anndrej said:

    September 21st, 3:01 am

    Guys…Ryan…please, someone, tell us a release date for Magic: Duels. There are dozens of us holding our breath. Dozens!

Please make Warhawk Remastered for the PS4. I know Warhawk is available to play on PS Now, but the service doesn’t stream well with my internet provider.

dkarlowicz10 said:

September 20th, 1:43 pm

September has been a great month for PS4. Destiny Fallen King, MGS5, Mad Max, and Until Dawn just to name a few. Can’t wait to see what October holds. Maybe we could see something San Andreas HD or Shadow of Colossus HD on Vita in the near future?

dkarlowicz10 said:

September 20th, 1:44 pm

I saw rumors on the internet that Bioshock Collection (with all the DLC) might be coming to PS4. Is it true? If so, any improvements over the PS3 versions? Either way, can’t wait if it is true.

MonkeyFunkR said:

September 20th, 1:53 pm

Whew! Soma..! Been waiting on that one for a while now.

MrPonuraski said:

September 20th, 3:02 pm

Arcade Archives should be PS4 / PS3 / PSV. It’s lame to force PS4-only releases for games that could easily run on PS3 and PSV. Corporate politics are nonsensical.

    Welmosca said:

    September 21st, 10:48 pm

    Agree 100%.

loxapine2 said:

September 20th, 3:06 pm

I have a question to anyone who looks at this. how many things do you have connected at the same time? I have a Nintendo 3ds, wii u and my computer. I tried to also connect my vita two or three days ago and have that for use but I guess it was too much for me. does anyone else have three or four devices that they have for use? I would have my vita for use but It is a lot.

D-Squad3 said:

September 20th, 3:24 pm

So we can’t predorder Afro Samura and play it at 9 pst monday night? SAD FACE

Nattur said:

September 20th, 3:53 pm

Why are these games not all hyperlinked to the in store game page or if not available yet the games own website? A Flickr page with the same image is of no value.

BretBaber said:

September 20th, 4:57 pm

Holy moly, a new PS one game! I’m still hoping and praying that someday we’ll get Brave Fencer Musashi on the PSN store as well as Dragon Quest VII. Please make my dreams come true, pretty please.

FIFA 16 this week for me. I think think this will be the 22nd FIFA game in a row for me. At this point EA should give me one free for being so loyal.

What happen. Where is Saint Seiya: Soldiers’ Soul? I thought it will release 25th of September 2015

JimmyLSanchez said:

September 21st, 12:29 am

I am liking the fact that Agetec is lending out all their IPs for PSOne Classics. It looks like then it will be soon that Top Shop should be released as a PSOne Classic. As an owner of all of these games on physical media, some of them are very worth making it a classic, but there are several that are true head scratchers. I am hoping that other companies are still in the mix and agree to allow their games to be put on the store as PSOne Classics, so that the people that do not understand that can understand and stop whining about why their favorite game is not on the store and thinking that Sony is hating on them. I would love to make a suggestion for PSOne Classic though, Intelligent Qube! Amazing puzzle game that had a low print run way back in 1997.

How much will PS Vita Heroes of Loot be?

djsaiyan said:

September 21st, 8:33 am

Afro Samurai and Soma for me this week. I was actually going to save my 10% off code for now but the flash sale had a few too many things I wanted in it. Ah well full price is fine with me.

epicnate932 said:

September 21st, 12:56 pm

Alot of hype for SOMA. I hope its as good as it looks

HellBringer1975 said:

September 21st, 3:07 pm

I wish they would put up the prices and download sizes of the games because a lot of other sites do and price wise these go up a few days before release so i doubt the prices would change , thats why some of the other sites i find better for my release info as they have US/can price and Europeans price and England . so please at least put the size of the download or install size because i am sure you have that info if other non Sony sites do. Example i wanted to buy a game on the flash sale but was not sure i would have enough for soma and Afro samurai so i had to pass on the sale game because some of us don’t just throw money around because we have it .
Also why do your movie sales suck they are always horrible with average of $1 or $2 off , when on sale i bought seasons 6,7,8 of Smallville for $10 each on the x1 and daywatch and night watch for $3 each and those are sale prices for movies and shows so please get some real sales because as of now i will never buy movies from psn when the sales on the other consoles are 60% to 90% difference from psn at times . Thank you and love the blog i wish every console had such a great web page we could go to for Info
