The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 11/29/2016

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

A long-awaited adventure is about to begin. Final Fantasy XV launches next week on PS4.

Royalty. Sacrifice. Friendship. Final Fantasy XV tells the story of the young Prince Noctis. On his way to meet his betrothed, Noctis and his three closest friends are shaken by the news that his kingdom has been invaded by an overwhelming foe. Now, the small group must separate truth from falsehood, and save an entire kingdom — and a legacy.

Explore a gorgeous open world, battle towering monsters, and empower Noctis and his party with extraordinary abilities in one of the most anticipated RPGs of this generation. Will the royal bloodline be broken? Or will justice find its way to the kingdom of Lucis?

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

10 long, patiently awaited years later and Final Fantasy Versus XIII (XV) has finally become a reality. It almost feels surreal! Huge congrats to Square-Enix for finally making it through development-hell.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We should all be thankful that we’re all still alive and healthy to have witnessed the long journey that is Final Fantasy XV’s release.

    Between this and Last Guardian in a few weeks we end a couple of the longest waits for games. Keeps my hopes alive for Beyond Good & Evil 2.

sciteach said:

November 25th, 5:09 pm

looking for new VR games to play! i’ve tried the Pinball FX VR, and if you really like pinball, give it a spin! you’re in your own little house and your tables are all set up around you. they have cool themes that make the room “feel” like the table, and then you’re just looking down at your table just like the real thing. and of course Zen does a bang up job on their artwork and physics.

    elchorno said:

    November 25th, 7:11 pm

    I was one of the “lucky” ones who was able to pick up the game earlier this week when it accidentally went on sale. It’s pretty great, and Pinball works fantastically in VR. Only wish the tables were a little cheaper, or at least a discount for those that owned the same tables from ZP2.

    FeistFan said:

    December 1st, 9:01 am

    Honestly, this sounds like the killer app for VR for me – the ability to really watch the pinball table and “see” it properly – I’m looking forward to it. Maybe next year – Playstation VR may be the least expensive VR option out there, but it’s still more than I’m willing to spend right now. Maybe when VR 2.0 comes out.

howismydriving95 said:

November 25th, 7:51 pm

DAH!2 coming to ps4 after years of hoping and months of waiting is literally a prayer come true. Yes I’m a huge nerd for the ps2 games I grew up on hahah. Man I hope this leads to a reboot. And if members of the original team helped, well… I would be one happy cracker.

STDlyMcStudpants said:

November 26th, 9:37 am

Vlaja29 said:

November 26th, 9:55 am

Already preordered FF XV, now just need to patiently wait.

Interrogators said:

November 26th, 10:57 am

I can’t wait for DAH2! I have been waiting and hoping for years for a rerelease of one of my all time favorite games! I just hope the audio skipping glitch that plagued multiple DAH2 copies I owned is straightened out. I really want to be able to hear all the terrible puns and jokes in entirety!

teenymhunter said:

November 26th, 11:13 am

Neon Chrome sounds interesting. Nice to see Vita titles still dropping each week.

Looking forward to Steins;Gate 0 and will definitely take a look at the other PS Vita releases.

Not interested in FFXV.

Chazprime said:

November 28th, 9:05 pm

Shoot… I saw the listing for “Clockwork Tales” and thought it said “Clock Tower”…now there’s a remaster I’d love to see!

phacebunt said:

November 29th, 5:32 pm

Sweet, Neon Chrome ended up being crossbuy! Was willing to drop some extra cash for Vita version but this is even better.

messu22 said:

November 30th, 9:27 am

So, no “weekly sale” this week? Man, this sucks. Don’t care about FF

    Letters2Kay said:

    November 30th, 10:14 am

    Weekly sale stuff would be posted in the “PSN Update 11/29/16” thread, had they bothered to post one this week.

    Not really important to them to tell us what is new and what is on sale this week, I guess.

Letters2Kay said:

November 30th, 10:10 am

Where’s the blog post with the updated content?? Are we not doing that anymore? It’s been late for the last few weeks and now it’s Wednesday and there has been no post detailing the games and DLC (presumably) released on Tuesday this week… I know I can go to the store and pull up new stuff, but it is much easier to check the blog post so I know what I am looking for. Here’s hoping someone just forgot, because I have been reading that blog entry religiously every week for almost 10 years. It helps me plan what to buy and make sure I don’t miss something I’d wanted… (1/2)

Letters2Kay said:

November 30th, 10:11 am

(2/2)…
You REALLY love making it harder to shop on the PSN, don’t you Sony? Stopped taking my credit card when my zip code changed, and though I even re-linked my PayPal info the other day, you now won’t charge that account either for some reason, forcing me to buy PSN cards in rounded amounts if I really want to make a purchase… and now you don’t even bother to post new content updates online!? I used to buy new stuff all the time and on a whim, but now you created so many hoops for me to jump through that I just don’t bother unless it’s something I really want- and I’m sure as hell more apt to wait for a sale even if I do want something badly enough to buy it. Also more likely to miss a release entirely because I decided to wait for a sale or for a time I am buying more stuff, and then I just forget about buying whatever it was altogether. Way to go, Sony. I game less these days and I buy less on PSN, and that is totally on you.

TRINISTEEL said:

November 30th, 5:37 pm

Im just interested to know if anyone has info on the Final Fantasy 15 Vr experience id like to give it a try but can’t find it anywhere on the ps store or the game itself any help would be great Thanks

SweetDreams7979 said:

November 30th, 7:19 pm

if Metal Slug …when I go to the PS4 store is more than $7…its a rip off…

Tatanka2007 said:

December 1st, 4:59 pm

Stay away from Steins;Gate 0 UNLESS you’ve played the original. I’m enjoying it, but I recall a blog here earlier from the localization team saying anyone could enjoy it without prior experience. That’s a big dirty lie in the interest of sales. I’ve played the original many times, so I am appreciating this continuation. But if you have not reached Steins;Gate with Okabe, the story would be difficult to follow and almost impossible to appreciate.

That said, get the PS3, Vita/PSTV, or Steam version and play it through all the endings before tackling S;G 0.
