Didn't see this from Destructor so I thought I'd put one up in his stead.  Feel free to delete if you want to keep consistency.

Big week for PS4 owners as two of the biggest titles drop with MGS Ground Zeroes and Infamous Second Son.  There's also a few good titles out for the Vita with what has to be the biggest week in ages.

PS4
SteamWorld Dig
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
Stealth Inc. Ultimate Edition

PS3
Final Fantasy X & X-2 HD
Luftrausers
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

XB1
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

360
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Vita
Final Fantasy X & X-2 HD
Luftrausers
SteamWorld Dig
Borderlands 2

PC
Deus Ex: The Fall
Luftrausers

Thursday March 20
PC
Men of War: Assault Squad 2
Cloudbuilt

Friday March 21
360
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

PS3
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

PS4
inFamous: Second Son


So, what are you getting?  Is Infamous going to be Sony's answer to MS and Titanfall?  Will Hideo Kojima's latest interest you enough with a rumored short mission and promised replayability?

Early impressions are very positive for Infamous, so I'm probably going to get that one. Nothing else really interests me this week, least of all MGSV.

This was asked on the blog and never answered.  I'd guess midnight EST but it's anyone's guess.  I was hoping they would lift the release date now that so many people have early copies and unlock it today, but that's wishful thinking to the extreme. 

I plan on picking up Steamworld Dig for sure, will probably pick up Luftrausers and waiting on reviews for MGS.  I'll still likely backlog that though as Toys R Us is giving you a $10 GC.

I knew I forgot something last night. LOL

And Infamous is coming out this week. I really should snag it so my PS4 has something exclusive to play.

EDIT: WTF is with the Friday releases this week for multiple titles? Tuesday is the launch day for everything in the US. EVERYTHING. Unless you're Nintendo anyhow.

InFamous is already purchased as my first full digital buy (not including arcade titles, PS+ freebies and the DC fighting game on PS4, which was a double dip and bought at a discount).  I know it's one I'll actually play through and finish, though, so it seems okay.

I may get Steamworld Dig and Luftrausers*, the latter because I like the idea of flying German pants.  I hope I'm not misjudging that game.

If I ever finish MGS IV, I may get whatever the hell this is.

I've got Infamous on the way from Amazon.

I don't mind Friday releases as long as things are guaranteed to be here on time.  Because of that I'm always slightly nervous about it.  Nothing worse than expecting a big release and getting a late shipment and missing the weekend, so I'd rather have a day of buffer at least.

I'll be interested to see what sort of reviews that Ground Zeroes game gets.  Everything I've read suggests it's effectively a great big proof-of-concept demo, with a 90-minute long critical path and a handful of side objectives, that Konami has elected to sell for $30.  (Or $20 digitally.)

I remember thinking the paid demo for Dead Rising 2 was sort of weird, but that was just $5 and unlocked things that carried into the full game.  This...just seems like a ploy to exploit fans who're looking for some stealth action on their shiny new consoles.

The current Metascore for the PS4 version is 75 with 26 reviews. Meanwhile, Eurogamer has published an article called "Watch us complete Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes in just 10 minutes".

I've never been interested in the MGS games, but I'd still say that you'd have to be pretty desperate for more MGS if you're willing to pay full price for what appears to be a demo for the full game coming out later.

They admitted to rushing through it for that.

Also, A) the game is only $30 and 2) the playtime I've been seeing is 8 - 10 hours.

I've read a few of the lower bookended reviews and while they give it a 70, the text reads like a 5.  sadly, it seems the uneven review scale in most sites are playing around with the average.  

GI does say you can get almost 10 hours of the side missions and collectibles though
