‘The Drop’ – Games out on PlayStation (3rd – 9th August) *updated*

As last weeks ‘The Drop’ proved popular (and possibly helpful), I’ve decided to carry it on, once again focusing on the PS4 games which are due out next week. Like last time, these are subject to change and there is probably a lot of titles I’ve missed, but it’s the best I can do based on the sources I have.

As I said above, some of these games may not release this week, and there will be ones I’ve missed – but this is all the info I can find with the limited resources to hand. I’m still hoping that the PSN Blog pulls themselves together and starts publishing ‘The Drop’ every Friday like they used to. Until then, if you find this helpful please let me know on Twitter or in the comments below and I’ll try to comprise an article like this on Friday/Saturday each week.
