1. Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2


Play as Mega Man X – the powerful evolution of classic fighting robot Mega Man – as he battles a variety of deadly bosses known as Mavericks across eight exhilarating action platformers. The Collection bridges the gap between X’s 16-bit and 32-bit entries, giving you two generations of sci-fi adventures to enjoy.

2. The Banner Saga 3


The award-winning, turn-based strategy series concludes with another story-driven, gorgeously animated slice of tense tactical action steeped in Norse mythology.

  • Available: 26th July

3. The Persistence

Dive into The Persistence, a procedurally generated, first-person stealth horror designed exclusively for PlayStation VR. Trapped on board a deep-space scientific vessel in the year 2521, you need to find a way to escape. But repairing the ship’s devastated systems while surviving the horrors on-board isn’t going to be easy.

4. Train Sim World


Train Sim World offers you the opportunity to be the driver. Walk around stations and freight yards in an immersive first-person view, and ride one some of the world’s most amazing railways. Climb aboard a variety of famed diesel and electric engines from around the globe and travel along authentically recreated routes.

What a great surprise. All the stuff I wasn’t expecting this week is actually coming this week. I only mention it cos it’s such a novelty. Here take my money Sony

I’ve been hoping for Slaps and Beans since it was early access on PC! it’s probably not worth 20 eur but who cares, it’s Bud Spencer & Terrence Hill haha

edit: are you kidding me? 27 EUR ?! it’s 20 on PC. now I’m not buying until it hits 15 Eur.


Two great psvr games this week,The Persistence and Detached. I’m gonna be greedy this week and get both lol.

Nothing for me this week. I’d quite like to play the first Mega Man X again and on this time on my PS4 but those sets are a lil too expensive for me it moment. Gotta save for other things. :/

PlasticArcade 23 July, 2018 @ 16:38

Surprised that Candle: The Power of the Flame is coming out this week, I wasn’t expecting it until Sept/October. Will the gameplay compliment the graphics? We’ll see…

jamestillett 23 July, 2018 @ 17:45

Another week of nothing Train simulator looks quite good just don,t want to fork out 40 quid at the moment got holiday coming so the more money i save the better

Alucard6769 23 July, 2018 @ 17:57

How can you say that. Loads of good stuff. Persistence . Detatched. Narcosis . Remothered. Plus the NMS next update. It’s a real good week..

jamestillett 23 July, 2018 @ 18:11

Maybe for you but necessarily for others Digital downloads cost more money & you can,t get refunds on them so it is a Question i have to really like it before i buy it same applies to physical Disc no point in buying games you don,t like

jamestillett 23 July, 2018 @ 18:12

Could Sony display the price of these games as well so we can all see what we are paying for


Nothing fire me this well but there are lot game bundles the games what on store before than new games this week . Hope mega man x series sales.


Nothing really that intrests me i will wait for new deal on Playstation store besides i just got into the Far Cry 5 and CoD WWII…

Nothing for me :-( Seems like the best content this week will be released as patch (NMS).

I will probably try the Banner Saga too. But later when I have more time and less games in backlog.

Are Forsaken Remastered a Xbox One exclusive since it released 1-2 days ago?

There is no version released for PC and PS4, and isn’t mentioned here either.

Yeah, that’s unfortunately the case, it’s exclusive to PC and Xbox One.

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
