Instead of Baja HD, lets bring back the DiRT titles that were on PS3. Those were a lot better than BAJA.

    Why would Codemasters do that when they are still making new racing games? Dirt Rally released on PlayStation 4 last year. THQ Nordic is pulling from the THQ back catalog they acquired so it’s possible more old THQ games will make an appearance in the future.

Something for everyone this week, awesome line-up of content!

PSVR
-VR Karts

PS Video
-Transformers Collection
*Please, Please, bring 4K HDR content to PS Video for PS4 Pro owners*

PS Vue
-Seahawks, wlecome back football!
*Thank You PS Vue Team*

Keep on delivering, and keep on expanding to new content areas. I would love to see some more non gaming/non entertainment apps. Open up the doors, and let app makers do their magic. PS4, PSVR, and the overall PlayStation ecosystem can continue to grow with simple daily needs apps. Don’t be afraid to bring, banking, dieting, work out, and much more to the ecosystem. PlayStations potential is unlimited, don’t let a huge oppertunity pass you by.

It’s Samurai Showdown V Special will be the original uncensored released with original fatalities and not the censored generic fatalities one? If so, I’m so into this game.

    Yes. There is a blog and trailer.

YS and Tooth & Tail have my attention. Might have to grab one of them as a birthday present to myself (even if i just snagged Destiny 2 as an early one).

Ever since Sony made PS plus mandatory they have more and more indie games it’s alright to have some but when the indie games out way the number of AAA titles I might as well play on an android box and save the the $70 a year I bought a ps3 and ps4 for the amazing games that were on the system. I respect Sony’s support for the indie market but things need to be balanced

Still no boxing, where is Fight Night Champion 2 ?

September 9th, 10:28 am

Am I the only one desperately waiting for the game like Motorstorm on ps4? Is Baja even close? Please advice.

    teh_pwner said:

    September 9th, 3:17 pm

    @elCapitan I’ve been waiting. And Baja is September 14, 2017.

    Psydswipe said:

    September 12th, 3:12 am

    While you crossed out Blackguards 2 digital it might be worth noting that it did release at retail today. Also, VR Karts should be at retail in a couple weeks.

    Psydswipe said:

    September 12th, 3:14 am

    Sorry, that last comment was supposed to be a new post. Not sure how close Baja is to Motorstorm. Baja is a rally game that I believe is more arcade than simulation but otherwise a standard racing game; meaning no real story or characters.

I love seeing all these SNK games coming out. I hope we see more King Of Fighters PS2 Classics, like KOF ’01-’03.

Still no Jak 2, 3 and X :(

Statik-Selekta said:

September 11th, 10:30 am

Is this a joke? There’s lots of irrelevance listed on here. But not the XCOM 2: War of the Chosen Expansion which drops 9-12? WOW!!!!

Potter13579 said:

September 11th, 3:23 pm

I’m pretty surprised no one’s talking about Dishonored: Death of the Outsider. I would have thought that would have been the big release of the week.

HeathenFriar said:

September 11th, 9:20 pm

Interested in Tooth & Tail. Maybe it’ll tide me over until Square Enix ports FF Tactics or Tactics Ogre to PS4. PLEASE!

    Yooperwiz said:

    September 14th, 11:55 am

    FF Tactics or Tactics Ogre would be great!

I like seeing what’s coming but could things like genre, price, a screenshot and a description focusing on the gameplay rather than some marketing blurb?
Most of the information tells us very little about what each game really is.
Don’t like to be negative but I can’t be the only one thinking this.
