  • Ooh EDF can’t wait to play that with friends.

    • Your lucky, my ps4 friends list all they play is cod, never any games i buy that i enjoy myself.

  • lol, no mention of YAKUZA 5 even though it was announced big style at yesterday’s PSX xD it IS supposed to come out in the next Store Update after all…

    • iamtylerdurden1

      PlayStation/Sony is terrible at selling themselves, they make fantastic products yet they don’t always market themselves in the best light. Whereas microsoft makes utter garbage, but markets it so well with their propaganda and $.

      It’s sad bc casuals and lemmings can’t see through the bs and/or aren’t informed enough to know the difference. Why on earth didn’t they announce Dreams as VR compatible at psx? Where is Yakuza 5 in the drop, why not hype PS2 emulation a little more, announce NMS VR at psx, reinforce Gran Turismo Sport VR, SFV VR, Tekken 7 VR, tell us what Bend is working on, Santa Monica, the VR studio in northern UK, announce Rapture and Detroit as VR games, Don’t wear a Crash shirt if u aren’t going to mention him (MR. Layden), show the awesome Paragon gameplay at the Keynote instead of just a cinematic. Promote the hell out of London Heist and NMS VR.

  • whereymyconary

    Sweet getting my yakuza 5 fix!

  • whereymyconary

    Also very curious about among sleep.

  • Very nice drop, Ryan – especially amidst all the activity that is PSX! It was nice to see you on the PSILoveYouXOXO PSX stream, as well :-)

  • Among the Sleep!

  • Might give Four Kings a look. Haven’t played any poker in a while.

  • To everyone commenting about Yakuza, chances are this post was written before they’d announced that and the writer just wasn’t made aware of it. It’ll probably get updated to include it.

    During big events like this any media posts are written, edited, and scheduled at least 1-2 days in advance of the event.

  • Indies games not worth a cent are getting mentions, but YAKUZA 5, a true PS3 masterpiece, one of the best games made in the last few years, doesn’t get even one damn line. Outrageous!

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Like Clements didn’t know Yakuza 5 was coming? I think he had the scoop….just a guess.

  • EDF! EDF! EDF! 60fps split screen coop!!!

  • Xbox1_Sign_Out

    Can’t wait for Taco Master.

  • put on dragon ball z buk

  • Destiny racing! Whoo!!

  • I_Wish_U_WuD

    Will Ps2 games ever come to the Ps Vita?????????????????????

  • Mr-Android-

    Will Among the Sleep eventually have PSVR Support? I ask because from what I read the developers stopped doing VR for PC as they figured it wouldn’t work well for immersion, yet I still saw Among the Sleep on a recent listing of PSVR titles.


  • What about Civilization Revolution 2? I thought that was December 3

  • Zotrix!!! Very cool..

  • What happened to Civilization Rev for Vita?

  • “Originally scheduled to launch tomorrow, December 3, 2K Games announced today that Civilization Revolution 2 Plus for PlayStation Vita is now releasing on January 26, 2016 in North America and Europe.” Can not watch any of those shows as Vue is not available to the rest of my state yet besides Dallas.

  • Yay, Yakuza 5! Will it have a midnight release for pre-orders?

  • ElektroDragon

    WE NEED new Golf and Tennis games on PS4! We need a new Top Spin and a new Hot Shots Golf. Come on Sony! This week I’m buying Among the Sleep and the Casino thing. Variety is KEY!
