It would be nice to know how much Lumines will be… tried looking around and cant really find an answer

I don’t think there was a The Drop for the weeks of 6/12 and 6/19, so the chance of putting a spotlight on Muv Luv, the best visual novel ever, was missed.

The neglect the Vita gets is just mind shattering.

    steeler192 said:

    Also missing any mention, the release of CLANNAD on PS4, another top-10 visual novel.

Hi Sony. You really need to allow players from other platforms to cross play with your system.
You used to do this with PC gaming back when the PS4 first launched.
PlayStation brand is getting a pretty bad slander from everyone on the internet as well as the cable main stream media.
It’s not a good thing to lock people from playing on different platforms.
You might just loose next Gen gaming if this issue isn’t resolved quickly… I don’t want that to happen.
Start by not locking people’s account so that they can play it on other platforms they own starting with Fortnite.

    What does this have to do with the Drop? Nothing.

    if you want to be right, they did pc crossplay since ps2. ms spit in their face time and time again from ps2 to start of ps4. if you want the real cause you have no one to blame but ms. also they still do pc/ps4 cross play.

    ….and no they are far from “losing” anytime soon. xbox is struggling and nintendo lacks service.

    This crusade is silly. Cross-play doesn’t benefit the one in the lead from a business perspective and Sony has to consider the wishes of their investors. When people decide which system to get they also consider which system has the most players if they’re into multiplayer gaming. This means that more people will buy a PS4 based off player numbers.

    Another thing, cross-play wasn’t even an issue until Fornite and even then the number of players that would cross-play with eachother on say PS4 and Xbox is very low. All of this is just a bandwagon people have jumped on.

    After a while this bandwagon will die down and people will move on. Because it doesn’t matter.

    I agree, Tiger. My nephew plays on Xbox and I played on PS4. It is unfortunate, but the negative comments are correct. Sony is not for the player, they are for the investor, always have been.

    Luckily, now that Fortnite is on Switch, I am able to play with him, but I’m sorry for your situation.

    adrianvon said:

    They might LOOSE the next gen? Guess they better tighten things up.

    Sony supports cross play. They have games you can cross play on. It’s the developers that don’t want to go through delayed release times on updates because of Sony’s required certification process. Not Sony’s fault there.

    Locking accounts? Lol. Cuz sony hacked into the developers servers, and modified their code to limit what people can do in their games huh? Makes total sense. The end of your post explains so much. Fortnite fanboy. Everything you said is wrong. Please, get educated before you whine about fake news.

    CommandingTiger said:

    June 26th, 6:14 pm

    You can always deny the problem.
    But I don’t see why PlayStation won’t allow some games to play on other platforms.
    We have cross-play with some PC games.
    Heck, in Japan, There’s cross-play with the PS4 and Wii U for Dragon Quest Online.
    Why will you lock a Fortnite account to PlayStation and force people to start a new profile from scratch?
    It doesn’t make sense, games between Facebook and Android don’t do that and you can bring in your Apple iOS account.
    None of it is locked. This is PlayStation excluding themselves from the rest of the world.
    This isn’t making investors money, they will be loosing money in the end.
    And their stock dropped due to that so it’s not a good sign.

Anybody playing the Crew 2 beta enjoying it? I have done the first missions of the plane and car stuff and the initial training and I am just not feeling it yet.

Have I not given it enough time?

    June 24th, 4:35 pm

    Me too. Played the closed beta. Everything feels like you’re driving a bar of soap. The first Crew was the same

Wish I could pre-order The Crew 2…the game is lit.The improvement over the 1st one is massive,ubi really went with everything they got on this one.Amazing game.

Barkfin said:

The crew 2 looks interesting, maybe a bit too outlaw for me. One of my favorite Atari 2600 games was “Enduro”, which was a cross-country race game with fantastic transitions between day/night, and highly challenging stretches of fog. It also had snow stretches, but no rain I think.

WTF is going on with The Drop?!
It’s now July 9th, and I haven’t seen a new The Drop post, since this June post.
I’m kinda ticked! I depend on these posts to tell me what’s coming up. That way I can budget my $ to get what I think I want.
But this is just another way Playstation screws things up for the consumer. I’m just going to take my $100 + monthly spending over to X-Box. At least they’re not screwing up, or around with, all the settings and layout every month. Because the way PS screws with the stuff, I’m constantly having connection issues.

    The Drop is the only reason I come to the PS Blog, but now they don’t even bother to post upcoming releases anymore. What’s up with that?
