    Battlefield 2042 Coming to PlayStation Plus in March

    The game is good now. Trust me.

    Battlefield 2042 is in a place where I would consider the game to be good. Great? Eh, maybe a little bit of a stretch. It's been an absolute blast to play over the past few months thanks to DICE's continued efforts to right the wrong that was the game's initial launch.

    It should then be good news to PlayStation Plus subscribers to learn that Battlefield 2042 can be added to their accounts at no extra cost. This is for both PlayStation 4...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
