The Division Beta

Tom Clancy’s The Division Beta is your chance to test and experience a pre-release version of the game. Plus, it serves as an important opportunity for the team to make sure the game is balanced and the servers are tested to pave the way for a smooth launch. The beta will not be a full version of the game, does not represent the final quality of the game, and will only function during specific time frames.

The Witness

The Witness
You wake up, alone, on a strange island full of puzzles that will challenge and surprise you. You don’t remember who you are, and you don’t remember how you got here, but there’s one thing you can do: explore the island in hope of discovering clues, regaining your memory, and somehow finding your way home.

Whatever happened to the horror-puzzle game “Dead Secret”? It was supposed to launch in January on PSN.

    CamelKong said:

    January 24th, 10:29 am

    Either it’s dead, or it’s a secret!

    I’ll just show myself out.

Is the division beta open to everyone?

    RinSatori said:

    January 24th, 10:23 am

    No you need to

    A) Pre-order
    B) Sign up and get invited
    C) Get a beta code from third party site

    Amnalehu said:

    January 24th, 10:38 am

    JMBlakk said:

    January 24th, 4:52 pm

A lot of interesting games coming out this week! Here I thought all I had to look forward to was The Division beta.

Such bummer that Civilization Revolution 2 Plus Vita got delayed again. I was looking forward to it.

    ryan1701e said:

    January 24th, 2:08 pm

    I know. I looked here to see if it was in the drop, but of course, it just got delayed today. That stinks.

    Dracklore said:

    Wonder if maybe this will be a PS Plus title for Feb.

Any word on the file size for the PS Vita version of Lego Avengers?

Xcaligamer1 said:

January 24th, 10:30 am

I’m going to go broke I swear lol. Still gotta get dark cloud 2; gotta get the witness, pax south on the weekend, cone back n get ready for superbowl, then Digimon cyber sleuth followed by SFV. Celestine day is officially canceled lol

CamelKong said:

January 24th, 10:30 am

How big is The Witness supposed to be? Knowing in advance would be useful so I can clear up some space.

dhunter_12 said:

ARGH! SO MANY GAMES… this was… unexpected.

Sonicfan11589 said:

Hopefully either Ape Escape 2 or 3 (or BOTH?!) come out next week on PS4?

Sonicfan11589 said:

January 24th, 11:01 am

Say if you could pass it along, can you reconsider pre-ordered digital games being discounted. I forget if it was through PS Plus or not. Amazon is now offering games 20% off for Prime Members.

    TimMalouff said:

    January 24th, 12:36 pm

    Even if you have a code for a % off for the PSN you can’t use it for pre-orders. (Very Sad )

    I agree it’s sad that with Amazon Prime & BestBuy you can get a % off & usually better bonuses to pre-order the you can with having Playstation plus.

So excited for Saturday Morning Rpg.

    MakaiOokami said:

    January 24th, 12:37 pm

    I’m excited to try it out too, but it really rubs me the wrong way how it just randomly says JRPG in a description for a game that’s based on American cartoons, with seemingly no Japanese even so much as inspired elements.

    I really hate it when people abuse what a game is just for marketing and some clicks.

    It would have been nice if they had released this on the PS3 some time ago, maybe gotten enough money to do the full 20-26 episodes they wanted to, but the PS3 was so hard to develop for they probably couldn’t afford it. Sony has changed everything in dealing with the ease of use of programming for the PS4. Maybe they’ll be able to finally afford to do an expansion pack and another 20 episodes.

    Tomoprime said:

    January 25th, 2:28 am

    Play Saturday Morning RPG for free in the App Store. The game hasn’t been updated since 2012.

dkarlowicz10 said:

January 24th, 12:10 pm

Attention: Lego Avengers for Vita is supposed to be like the console version. No more of the inferior versions. Vita owners rejoice. Go and buy it to show that you want future Lego games on Vita to be just like this one.

    TimMalouff said:

    January 24th, 12:38 pm

    I will wait for reviews first as I have been disappointed with 3DS ports to the Vita before.

    StuTX said:

    January 24th, 3:55 pm

    Agreed. I always buy the physical versions on day one to show support. Also if you like real legos gamestop gives you the preorder figure (or other bonus) for the vita version.

djsaiyan said:

January 24th, 12:24 pm

Gonna be The Witness and Saturday Morning RPG for me this week.

Also gonna give The Division a whirl to see if I like it. I’m really, really on the fence on that one

josh261995 said:

January 24th, 1:45 pm

Ill be picking up Lego Avengers on disc & also picking up The Witness for sure!!!!!

bentonmaru said:

January 24th, 1:51 pm

Where is Civilization Revolution 2 for the PS Vita? Awe man, guess I’ll just pick up Lego Marvel Avengers….

NMeck702 said:

January 24th, 2:55 pm

This War of Mine is amazing. No game has ever made me feel bad for choices I’ve made until this. Some of the stuff genuinely bummed me out. Definitely check it out.

AnthonM22 said:

January 24th, 3:59 pm

Hi Ryan, I hope you consider bringing Undertale to PS4, it’s a good rpg with great music, worthy of being on PS4.

    petethepanda said:

    January 24th, 4:20 pm

    There are reasons it might be a tough fit for consoles, but if it ever hit PS4, I’d certainly double dip. Fantastic game.

petethepanda said:

January 24th, 4:22 pm

The real question is whether or not I come down with a freak sickness on Tuesday. I’d have no option other than spending the whole day devouring The Witness.

jake_ames999 said:

January 24th, 4:23 pm

Just when will we be able to preorder dark souls 3 on the ps store

navcomm81 said:

January 24th, 5:03 pm

Nothing for me aside from the beta for The Division.

This War of Mine is cool – but I rarely even touch it on my PC so I have no reason to get it on PS4.

solace357 said:

January 24th, 5:17 pm

I am so hype on this. Gonna have to scrounge up the $$.

YorlecmNwahs said:

Saturday Morning RPG looks interesting!

    lodgedrocket said:

    January 25th, 9:38 pm

    I bought the PC version on Steam for about a dollar on a Steam sale in 2014. I thought it was pretty fun for what it is.

chris_tane said:

January 25th, 7:27 am

Alright, I’ll be the one to say it: “Gemini Heroes Reborn” looks quite interesting, even if you’re like me, and have been terribly disappointed by “Heroes Reborn” the tv show.

LeandroDiFini said:

January 25th, 8:53 am

Many interesting games. But my dream of seeing Magic The Gathering Origins here is fading fast….

T_Butters said:

January 25th, 10:16 am

Please help, does anyone know what time the witness will be available on PSN on the 26th? Midnight, or sometime after?

    AizawaYuuichi said:

    January 25th, 12:19 pm

    As there is no pre-order option (which really disappointed me), it won’t be available until the standard store update time, which is generally around 2pm PT/ 5pm ET. It might show up a few hours earlier than that, but in my opinion, it’s safer to wait until the store update post goes live, cause you never know if it’ll launch with a PS+ discount that doesn’t get applied until closer to the store update being finished.

    Chip1010 said:

    January 25th, 4:22 pm

    The game’s Twitter account says 12:01 a.m. Pacific, “if all goes well.” Which, of course, it often does not. But that seems to be the plan.

Ribbercage said:

January 25th, 3:16 pm

Can’t preload on the store! Can’t even preorder! WOW!

    Darkeitachi said:

    January 28th, 9:57 am

    @Ryan Update 1.01 on Dark cloud 2 broke the monster badge farming you litterally Can’t get any monster badges
