It used to be a weekly ritual for me to head over to the official PlayStation Blog and see what games we can expect to see next week on Sony’s platforms. However, ever since the Blog was shifted from NA to EU (in regards to who is running it), they’ve lost interest in actually telling the gamers what’s coming out and providing any info about said titles – which is a shame and annoying as it was the only official source which KNEW what was coming.
Despite reaching out to the editor, posting on twitter, and messaging on the Blog itself, we’ve had no response as to why ‘The Drop’ has vanished and if it’s ever coming back. So, I thought I’d step in this week and see if we can possibly help some people by listing the games we’ve ‘read’ are out this week. As we don’t have the ‘official feed’ – unlike the Blog writers do – we’re combining various sources and hoping the information is correct (some of it may not be).
Here is the very long list (with images and some trailers) for the games which are supposedly coming to PS4 and PSVR this week.
**Click any of the images to go to the trailer I’ve found for the game on YouTube**
