    Siralim 2 for vita! I bought it for my phone a few months back, but quit playing it because I heard it might come to vita soon. Great game!

  • Rapturesassassin

    Nothing for me this week im busy with Horizon: Zero Dawn and Ghost Recon: Wildlands

    oh and in before the update blog whiners.

  • Hmmm, I see a couple things to trade my miney for.

  • BeerManMike

    This is all different and confusing, whats on sale? Demos? Whats going on? BRING BACK PLAYSTATION STORE UPDATE!

    • Rapturesassassin

      And a whiner right on time

    • Tatanka2007

      @Raptureassassin: I’d rather see someone post a POLITE reminder about the ditching the store updates than a nothing post like yours that’s just name-calling.

    • @Tatanka2007 I have no weight on this conversation one way or the other as I don’t care if the store update comes back or not… it was good, but I am not missing anything without it.

      However… all caps is never polite. Ever. All caps is the equivalent of shouting at someone. So the post in question was not a polite reminder, it was an impolite one.

    • Tatanka2007

      @Seluhir REALLY? I guess YOU and Al Gore wrote the rules for the internet. WHat you stated is YOUR opinion, and nothing more.

    • ShadowCrowMan

      @Tatanka2007

      MORE LIKE ITS YOUR OPINION. Sony doesn’t care what you or the other idiots do when its comes to blog. A few idiots that stop spending money on the PSN store wont matter to sony. If you buy that digital game physical that money still goes to sony. And even if you dont buy DLC or digital only game the loss of you few pennys out 55 million Ps4 Users wont effect sony 1 bit. So cry all you want every week but sony wont change the blog for a few trolls.

    • @Tatanka I don’t think there’s any other possible way to interpret all caps followed by an exclamation mark except as shouting. Denying that simply shows you as unfamiliar with the basic grammar of the English language.

    • I have to reluctantly agree that the PlayStation Store update is missed but I get my info elsewhere now.

    • And didn’t they say there would still be a different one that still lists add ons ? Go to PlayStation lifestyle for the store updates then sir.

  • Danganronpa 1-2 Reload was shipped today. Still old school and prefer physical when I can get it…sorry, not sorry.

  • KidCommando

    Get rid of the Drop and bring back the STORE UPDATE.

    The STORE UPDATE post was the single most useful thing on this blog…and now we have this second rate phone in post instead.

    Yay, Go Blog Team! Make it harder and more work for your consumers to find content. Thanks guys!!

    • Rapturesassassin

      And another whiner you wanna see how simple this is

      Load web browser on Ps4
      Come here
      Read the drop
      Wait till 1130am Tuesday
      Click on the store icon on Ps4
      Visit the whats new section look at new stuff and buy.

      Its so simple a caveman can do it.

    • Tatanka2007

      Great example, KidCommando! Major Nelson, the MS equivalent of PS blog, can find time to do store updates of sales. I don’t understand why Sony, who has a team of bloggers, suddenly can’t be bothered.

    • veryhoudini11

      @raptureassassin the comment section is for feedback and discussion between us. I don’t care about the store update posts because of how easy it is to check through the ps4 or on other sites like Playstation Lifestyle. However you can’t deny the convenience behind the store update for everyone who has actively visited the PS blog for years. Also you should learn how to communicate better, calling people whiners is unpleasant and is really lazy on an intellectual level.

    • I agree with KidCommando. If I have to visit the Store after it’s updated in order to learn about the updates, then there’s no reason for me to read the PS Blog.

    LAME

    • “Click to sort”

      LOL That’s useless. It’s been broken since forever and I’m tired of reporting it.

  • dkarlowicz10

    Some of these games are obvious, but some I have not heard of. It would be nice to have a gameplay video attached to each one so I wouldn’t have to go and try to find it myself.

  • whereymyconary

    Styx is what I want but I’m uber backlogged right now. That and danganronpa!!! I beat 1-2 plat for vita. So I bought it for a friend since they don’t have a vita.

  • saiyanknight87

    I’m low key salty that chaos code drops next week I been waiting for years for it to drop and I finally made an HK psn to get my hands on the game and it finally drops in the U.S. store smmfh lol.

  • sandkwithhp

    I hope they’ll start to notice the impact on the bottom line because I’m sure I’m not the only one who buys less when there’s no store update. Not because of a boycott, but because the store update brings my attention to games and deals I wouldn’t have seen otherwise and drives me to the store where I inevitably find more games and deals I want, too.

    • veryhoudini11

      It’s might the opposite. I imagine that they might be seeing more foot traffic on the store now. I understand that you are not alone with the change.

  • Finally a quiet week for me. It’s been intense lately with all of the amazing games dropping non-stop.

    Momodora is really good. Check it out.

  • Lots of good games this week!!

  • ElektroDragon

    Because someone had the nerve to message me on PSN complaining about me asking for a return of the PS Store Update Tuesday story, I will now make it my mission to ask for this every week on The Drop.

    • Lol someone always messages me whenever I say something along the lines of “the vita is dead”. People are so salty!

  • Momodora and Chaos Code for me next week.

  • I thought I already installed Trove a while back?

    • violentkiller

      @Tomoprime, yes its been out, but on the 14th there releasing an update for trove.

    • AizawaYuuichi

      The Trove Beta was released previously. This is the full release version, which means we’ll finally be able to earn trophies. I might finally jump back into it.

  • Kona for me

  • Speaking of Store issues, why haven’t they done something with the broken sort by price? It’s useless on the Weekly Deals section. I have to carefully check every item price. You can’t have this kind of problems in the 21st century!!!

    • It sorts by the base price, not the sale price. So it technically works.

    • No, it doesn’t.

      I find it exasperating that you’d rather excuse Sony with weak sauce cop-out of “well, if you ignore usability, skew your view, squint your eyes and look at it thiiiiis way, it kinda-sorta technically works…” than having a useful (key word: USEFUL) search that works as expected.

    • “It sorts by the base price…”

      And we all know there are no such things as ‘discounts’ on the Store. No sirree. None whatsoever.

  • Obligatory Danganronpa plug: Everybody who didn’t play this on Vita needs to have it! The story is riveting and the whodunnit mystery will keep you guessing till the all-out end! Or watch the anime.

    End PSA

    • No, don’t watch the anime – it sucks. A lot of stuff gets cut out in the adaptation. Play the games instead.

    • Adherence to the source material aside, I’d have someone watch the anime than not doing either.

  • Where is STAR TREK Bridge Crew?

    • BlackDiamond7120

      Heard from other sources that it was delayed till May. Partially to add in the original Enterprise for missions.

  • Also what the hell happened with South Park the fractured but whole? Everyone was issued refunds and you took away our Stick of Truth preorder bonus.

  • Chaos Code New Sign Of Catastrophe finally coming West.
    Wish Vita got a port of this game too.

    Also, if or when NeoGeo Sengoku 2 and Sengoku 3 comes out, please port those to Vita as well. Honestly I’m still not sure why these games are available on PS Vita?

  • Glad to see Sengoku on the PS4.
    Please consider Baseball Stars, League Bowling, and Top Player’s Golf.

  • Where is Skyforge, geez!!!!

  • Still laughing at all the people asking for the store update to come back. Get over it, and browse the web store. Lol

  • I wish Zero Escape: The Nonary Games would be unbundled. I already platinum’d VLR and ZTD. I’d happily replay just 999 in Vita.

  • I’m happy for the Neo Geo conversions but I’d like to see Baseball Stars 2 or some of the later SMUPS that are hard to find.

  • transeuntexbr

    Thanks for still suport the PS3!

  • Any chance of Playstation all stars battle royal seeing a ps4 release lol i really enjoyed it tbh

  • Eekeemoo maybe I already have Danganropa. Oh Danganropa is a weird version of Phoenix Wright. If that helped anyone.

  • nikki_boagreis

    You know, i can’t believe how many rant post about fixing the layout of the drop. Personally i never even notice until you’re everyday random starts ranting and raving about every detail, it wouldn’t matter then you can find something else wrong with the layout. Im still waiting on sales charts and pie graphs between Xb marketplace and the ps store. These fine upstanding Sony representatives do the best with what they have, and furthermore it doesn’t affect anything ranting and raving about every detail “Not that i’d know”

    They don’t call me a defender of public fourms for nothing
    It’s no wonder i stopped posting here, this post doesn’t count
    Blah Blah Blah, it doesn’t really matter
    No one cares, if you don’t support
    the ps store
    The drop or
    The layout

  • Well silent week this is.. Good because wiylth most of the March pre-orders.. My wallet is almost destroye.. Nier Automata is hilarious and fun. Horizon Zero Dawn is awesome!!! Sony release seqal please… Yoko Taro-san you craziest wieardest awesomest dude I know!! Now remaster original and start work on Drakenguard 4 and next chapter of Nier…. Now Mass Effect – Hm, Dear BioWare… Don’t let us Albertans down I preordered game the day it went on.. I don’t mind delay as long as it’s as immersive and fun + holorious as Automata… Persona 5 you are the next on my list!

  • Wingman_SRK

    Momodora looks really cool. I love these Metroidvania titles.

  • Cool. I might try out Danganronpa. Have only read positive impressions but never played that series.

  • Again this entire year no Ps2 games on Ps4

    you guys really are for the player, *sarcasm*

    Give gamers false hopes and let it die quietly.

    No Castlevania but you’ll put games like Fantavision and puzzle quest and hot shot tennis.

    No TimeSplitters, no actual game worth buying, no backwards compatibility for the ps2 games on ps3 or ps1 games.

    no updates, no backwards compatibility, no ps2 games in 2017 for ps4.

    why bother waiting for games because itll be another third party title nobody asked for.

    heres a hint.

    lead by example sony
    hire more staff so more games can be ported
    or give ps4 compatibility for digital ps2/ps1 ported games

    if not your business ethics will surely make people not care about future products like having a ps5 and asking everyone to rebuy ps4 games.

    when does the insanity stop

  • Hey, somoene having problems with Atelier Firis’s Special BGM Pack ? Some songs are not playing….

  • gigadrillbreak32

    Any idea how much Momodora will cost? I saw that it’s $10 on steam but will it have the same price on psn?
