Just because there is a very distinct chance that Sony will be announcing a PlayStation 4 later this week doesn’t mean that it’s time to throw in the towel on the PlayStation 3. This week’s PlayStation Network has quite a few tasty treats on offer, including the stabtastic day-one digital release of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and the similarly cybernetically enhanced badassary of Crysis 3.
First up in this week’s “The Drop” for PSN is Platinum Games’ Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, a continuation of cyber-ninja Raiden’s quest to cut literally everything into a million tiny pieces. If you’ve played the demo (available now on both the PS3 and Xbox 360), then you know how street-rat-crazy this game can get, and that’s exactly what lightning-fast action game fans should be in the market for. Revengeance looks to maintain the tone and aesthetics of the Metal Gear Solid universe while adding in the flash, flair and attitude Platinum has become known for.
From one dude in a crazy suit to the next, Crysis 3 will also be a day-one digital release on the PlayStation Network tomorrow, giving players the chance to explore a New York overgrown by rainforests and crawling alien scum. Did I mention you can use a bow? Bows make everything awesome.
Moving from the new school to the old school, the Capcom Arcade Cabinet will also be available as a digital download tomorrow, offering loads of classic Capcom titles with new features like co-op and trophies. Urban Trial Freestyle will also be available for the PS3 and Vita tomorrow, turning dynamic urban environments into your personal playground as you race to the finish line on a souped up dirt bike.
Finally, the PlayStation Portable will be getting some love in the form of a pair of RPGs, including Generation of Chaos 3: Pandora’s Reflection and Hakuoki: Warriors of Shinsengum.
Look for these games, as well as the usual fix of demos, trailers, DLC and sales, to hit the PlayStation Network during tomorrow’s regularly scheduled weekly update.
