Coming in just under the wire, Sony has announced the latest lineup of free PlayStation Plus games for October. It appears that the decisions were made at the last second this month, as the video which typically showcases all six games for the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita only includes the new-gen additions this time around.

The most difficult decision that a modern console gamer has to make it when to upgrade to the new generation. I know, it’s not exactly a life-altering decision, but it’s typically not a cheap one, so some carefully considerations must be made ahead of time.
Although tens of millions have already made the leap, there are still plenty of gamers who are squeezing every last drop out of their PS3s and Xbox 360s, but it’s looking like the beginning of the end for the former generation. More →
If you have a PlayStation 4 and you’re not maxed out on controllers, now is the time to complete your set. Sony’s wireless DualShock 4 controllers are fantastic, but they’re also pretty pricey, with a full retail price of $64.99. But we’re the BGR Deals Team, and you’ll never pay full price as long as you stick with us. More →
There have always been concerns about how long Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo can continue pushing out $300-500 machines every few years, but the former head of Xbox doesn’t think that this is the last generation. In an interview with GeekWire last week, ex-Xbox chief Robbie Bach discussed the future of game consoles, the Xbox One PR disaster and more. More →
Here you are with your brand new next-generation PlayStation 4 console, and you’re still plugging your DualShock 4 controllers into a cable to charge them like it’s 2003. Wake up, gamers — it’s 2015 and there’s a better way to do things… More →
One of the most highly anticipated releases of the holiday season is getting a beta. PlayStation announced on Tuesday that the PS4 beta for Star Wars Battlefront will open in “early October,” over a month before the game launches. According to the blog post, the beta will be a “technical test,” featuring three distinct modes to play. More →
The list of PlayStation 4 exclusives for the remainder of 2015 is worryingly slim, but gamers will be pleased to know that the elusive Uncharted 4 finally has a release date. Sony announced on Monday that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will launch on March 18th, 2016, along with a variety of limited edition packages. More →
For the first time in the history of the Instant Game Collection, PS4 owners were able to pick one of the two games they’re getting for free in September. Between Grow Home, Armello and Zombie Vikings, Grow Home unsurprisingly won out (which makes sense since it’s already been well-received by PC gamers). More →
I’ve never really been a fan of horror movies. The characters are vapid and dull, violence for the sake of violence rarely entertains me and the big twist is never as exciting as I hope it’ll be. I have nothing against the genre, it’s just not my thing, which is why I was so surprised to find myself unable to step away from the TV until I finished Until Dawn in a single sitting.
As we’ve discussed countless times over the course of this console generation, the PlayStation 4 is the clear winner in terms of international sales. Sony took advantage of Microsoft’s stumbles and appealed to a larger audience than it ever had it the past. At last count, Sony had sold over 25 million units… but Microsoft still hasn’t grown concerned. More →
I’ve gone back and forth on the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive adventure horror game Until Dawn, but after spending a few hours with a preview code last month, I think I’m more excited than I am skeptical for the retail release. It’s a pitch perfect teen horror story, chock full of all the tropes you’d expect from a summer movie, but it’s genuinely scary as well. More →
Every month for the past several years, Sony has released a selection of free PS3 games for PlayStation Plus subscribers. PS Vita and PS4 games were added to the list after the launch of those consoles, and now Sony is mixing it up once again by allowing PS4 owners to vote for one of the games they’ll receive for free beginning next month.

When Microsoft announced backward compatibility for the Xbox One at E3 2015, I began to see the first signs of the tide shifting in Microsoft’s favor. After flubbing the reveal of its new-gen console, Microsoft has been doing everything in its power to restore the faith of its fans, from bringing in Phil Spencer as Xbox head to launching an endless stream of affordable bundles.
