Elsewhere, sports fans can scratch their b-ball itch with a free 2K18 demo, NBA 2K18: The Prelude. Of course, you’re not limited to just these either: check out the rest of this week’s releases below!

Nothing decent this week. Thanks for posting though.

Destiny 2 and Knack 2 in the same week, huh? Bold move by Activision.

I wanted to comment on the same thing. It’s basically asking for Knack 2 to fail at release.

eh maybe but I’d take Knack over Destiny. I like third person adventure platformy sorta thingies and I dislike first person shooters.

^ same.

Zero Escape: Zero time dilemma digital, any news to report? Like a release date or why it’s not on the store as advertised 2 weeks ago. Anything to do with the announcement of physical release?

Some info would be nice. I don’t understand why the last few weeks every question in the comments here get the silent treatment. It’s not too difficult to at least aknowledge what people are asking and if you don’t know the answer, to try and get some answers from people who possibly know.

Even if you can’t figure it out, at least say something, because the way it’s going now, it seems like Sony Europe doesn’t care about their customers. You know, those people who make it possibly for Sony to exist as Playstation is the only pillar of Sony that doesn’t loose money.

Still waiting for Everest vr from last week.ps,does anyone from the ps blog ever reply to any of the posts on this thread?or it is just a waste of time posting here?

“Imagine this: You just woke up shirtless on a strange planet.”… sounds like just another sunday. #songbringer

But for real, how could there possibly be any demand for Bloobowl 2??

especially that the ps4 version is really bad, bug ridden crashing piece of crap. Completely ignored by devs. So buyers beware.

Still no Night Trap?

Think I shall keep my money this week.

So first Knack is coming finally to ps+ IGC ?

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

I really enjoyed Destiny the 1st time around but time-limited DLC just shouldn’t be allowed so I’m boycotting Activision’s cash cow this time.

Don’t Knock Twice looks good though :)

Why no Rock of Ages 2 – Binding of Isaac Pack in store?

A week where Knack is by far the best offering is strange!

Closing Evolution Studios, and making another Knack game – great decisions, congrats Sony!

lol i got 2 more for you

closing studio liverpool

closing zipper interactive

and making another whatever game.

I feel really bad for the person who has to write these articles. Imagine having to pretend that destiny and knack would be worth playing for free, let alone paying money for

13.1

You wash your mouth out. Knack is an amazing game.

Destiny always left a bad taste though.

Meanwhile Knack 2 is currently listed as free on the Australia PSN store, so technically you could play it for free!

What’s happened to Lost bear. ? More delays without explanation ?

Lost Bear is out today https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-gb/games/the-lost-bear/cid=EP1731-CUSA04537_00-1234567890123456

We were keeping people updated via our twitter/fb/reddit – unfortunately the delay was out of our hands!

15.1

They’re supposed to change on the first Tuesday of the month. But either way, they’re up now!!

It looks like they’ve lost the lost bear,maybe that bear wil turn up on Everest,opps They’ve lost Everest vr as well,may be some kind person for the ps blog will come on here and let us known,when these wil be release.

Its finally out today (I’m one of the devs) we had a problem PlayStation side that’s now been fixed – https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-gb/games/the-lost-bear/cid=EP1731-CUSA04537_00-1234567890123456

1st Knack 2 worlds best game 2017 and in very super last place destany2

Yeah, cool, how about informing us that PS+ price went up next time before you charge us, huh?

To be fair, I am quite sure they emailed us about that (mail from 28/07/2017). Altough it is possible you only got this if you turned on the newsletter (my email is from PlayStation@eu.playstationmail.net). I also got an email on 18/08/2017 which says to buy 15 months of PS+ for the price of 12 as long as it is still possible.

I thought the blog also made an article about this, but I can’t seem to find it, so they possibly didn’t (which I do feel is an oversight).
