Atelier Firis ^^

    Seluhir said:

    March 4th, 6:55 am

    Atelier is definitely on my list, but after how much worse Sophie was than Shallie/Escha in terms of crafting system… I just can’t be as excited about this one as I used to be about Atelier games. Especially since I’ve heard Firis is going to use a similar system to Sophie…

    Tinye310 said:

    March 4th, 7:36 pm

    Too bad, Sophie’s crafting system was so much fun, probably my favorite of all the Atelier’s so far. Cannot wait to play Firis! ^_^

    ElektroDragon said:

    March 4th, 9:53 pm

    Waaaaay to many Atelier games. First few on PS3 were great but we soon ignored the franchise when they started spamming new ones every 6 months it felt like.

Nier and Ghost Recon for me. Then in two weeks is Mass Effect Andromeda. Then two weeks from that is Persona 5.

Day One for Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey & Nier: Automata, but only to join the ranks of my back-log-gaming T_T sometimes i hate myself for buying a game that i know i won’t be able to play it Immediately, but well someday when i want to play it, it’ll be ready.

Hardly anyone cares about the Drop. Bring back the Store Update blog. BEYOND!

    ShadowCrowMan said:

    March 3rd, 4:07 pm

    I care about the drop. I just hate the new time. The drop needs to go back to Sunday afternoon.

    As for updates i can just look at the PSN Store at 1130am Est and everything i want will be there without anyone telling me

    LastPlace09 said:

    March 7th, 6:57 pm

    I’ve saved so much money since they removed the store update post. I used to come here every Tuesday and thoroughly read the postings. Now it’s gone, I barely visit this site, and I’m not tempted to impulse buy. Thanks Playstation!

A major console exclusive this week and you headline with the multiplatform title.

Ghost Recon Wildlands for me, but it looks like it might be a week or so before I pick it up; I am nowhere near done with Horizon Zero Dawn yet. #firstworldproblems

    YES! Go buy NieR on PS3! It was a great game… this new *thing* from Platinum has no right sharing its name.

    YoungBlaise said:

    Hell yea that game looks so good.

CaptReynolds said:

They need to give The Drop to someone who can do a better job… which would be anyone… living or undead

ShadowCrowMan said:

Ghost Recon Wildlands for me. On top of Horzion: Zero Dawn and Mass Effect my march is covered. Sorry Nier you’ll have tp wait till summer

    Oh and in before the PlayStation Lifestyle troll comments.

    Join PSU for updates more PlayStation updates less popup ads unlike PlayStation Lifestyle

Kevvik said:

Please make the original Nier available on PSN. Trying to track it down to play without paying “Collectible” prices is getting tiresome.

CommanderClif said:

March 3rd, 5:15 pm

Remember in January when the PS Blog said that The Drop was going to start including content about DLC etc since they were taking away the “Playstation Store Updates” on Tuesday? Still waiting for that. For all I know… Walking Dead: New Frontier ep. 3 came out weeks ago…I wouldn’t know (well if it wasn’t for trophy data).

    LastPlace09 said:

    March 7th, 7:01 pm

    Perhaps that January post was fake news?

Not to much on the game side I am interested in this week. I will probably pick up Unearthing Mars to support PSVR.

I really wish 4K HDR content would come to PS Video. There are a couple of movies now, I am holding off on watching until we get 4K support on PS4 Pro.

NekoRave said:

ZERO PS2 games on PS4 for 2017.

its almost the second week of march.

ABSOLUTELY NO SUPPORT.

GG Sony way to treat your new projects.

Last game was in December.

I just don’t understand why there has been no update as to why its taking almost 4 months to release ONE game.

Wouldn’t hold my breath for a interesting PS2 game and I speak for many when I say i’ve lost my interest in them.

    medenko1975 said:

    March 4th, 6:45 am

    just buy PS2?

    AizawaYuuichi said:

    March 4th, 10:50 am

    You realize it could very well be that the PS2 ports were not selling. That’s why they started discounting them for PS+ at launch. And they’re constantly on sale for a few bucks. If Sony isn’t making money off of them to cover the cost of porting them, they’re going to stop making them. And if sales are really that low, there’s no point making some big announcement if that’s the case, cause almost no one will miss it.

    Not saying this is correct, but you have to think critically about these situations.

    cleversignin said:

    March 4th, 4:32 pm

    I can’t tell if you are joking or just really stupid. what obligation is Sony under to release games from two generations ago?

    gameman15 said:

    March 4th, 5:36 pm

    I agree that it’s a real shame that Sony will most likely no longer release any more PS2 games on PS4. I actually bought three of them from the PS Plus sale (Twisted Metal Black, Star Jedi Starfighter, and Star Wars Racer Revenge) despite already owning them, and despite only played one of them on the PS4 so far, they’re pretty well done emulating a PS2 game on the PS4. The only issue I have, which is something I can deal with, is that the versions on the PS4 doesn’t support Dolby Pro Logic/Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound like the versions on the original discs do. Oh well, no big deal.

March 4th, 6:06 am

I know this gets said a lot, but so many, good games coming out! I am barely done RE 7 and just started NIOH. Didn’t even get to touch Yakuza 0 or Horizon: Zero Dawn, and the drop for THIS week, I’m seeing atleast 4 titles I want! Sony… please give me money :)

Seluhir said:

March 4th, 6:58 am

There are so many games in March… fortunately there’s been almost nothing else this year so I just need to finish Berseria and I can move on to Nier. After Nier, ME, then P5, then Horizon, then Atelier most likely.

Should be a good next few months. :)

Looks good still waiting for an announcement for Summon Night 6. They said that was suppose to be out last month.

Drop this post in the trash.

megalodonshark said:

March 4th, 4:03 pm

while i have been grateful for the revival of the classic games, if they actually were the classics, i have been wondering for a few years why there has never been any attempt to bring in soul reaver 2 or the other legacy of kain games, like the games that were ported from the ps1 classics. there are still some games i wonder about, as i would not mind going down memory lane with them at all.

Buying Atelier Firis and Nier Automata on launch. I just wish I knew what was up with Amazon Canada and Atelier Firis as they still don’t even have an estimated delivery time and the game is out on Tuesday…

Gay_Angel said:

March 6th, 11:38 am

Very excited about Atelier Firis, love the series!

Hey Sony, how about releasing the way over due 4.5 update. This is ridiculous at this point.

TheHerbinator75 said:

March 7th, 5:43 am

Bring back the store update on Tuesdays as The Drop is pretty much worthless in comparison.

Mokey70 said:

March 7th, 6:57 am

Can’t and won’t buy anything for my PS4 until the 4.50 update. No more space. Tired of juggling games for the last 2 1/2 years. External HDD compatibility is long overdue. I like to play the games I purchase not look at the boxes on my shelf because I had to delete them or can’t fit them until I delete other games. Wouldn’t be so bad if you could delete the game and not have to re-download a bunch of updates if you want to reinstall. I know it is an old complaint and argument, but to have it so close and still not be able to do it is frustrating. Hopefully they will have it before Mass Effect and MLB the Show 17. Or I will be skipping them like I did with Horizon. On the bright side it does force me to wait and buy games once they are budget priced.
