Although inFAMOUS: Second Son isn't due out until March 21, 2014, apparently there are copies of the game already floating around, and some have even taking to sharing the first 20 minutes of the game. Click the link if you want to get spoiled.
Second Son is turning out be a huge seller for the PlayStation, even out-pacing the numbers set by last year's The Last of Us pre-orders, as has been reported in the gaming media.
Additionally, there's also confirmation that there'll be two digital versions of Second Son available on the PS Store from midnight on release day, the standalone title and Infamous Second Son Legacy Edition. The Legacy Edition will include the first Second Son DLC pack, entitled Cole's Legacy.

Those expecting to play the highly-anticipated The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will have to wait just a bit longer. Originally scheduled for a Fall, 2014 release, the developers CD Projekt Red have decided to push the release date back to February of next year. In an open letter to consumers, the studio says that while they could release the game this Fall as originally scheduled, they'd rather take the additional few months to refine the game, solidifying the quality that they sought to originally achieve, and what they believe the gamers deserve.
Here's the full open letter:
We recently reexamined what we had achieved thus far, and faced a choice about the game’s final release date. The decision we made was difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious. We could have released the game towards the end of this year as we had initially planned. Yet we concluded that a few additional months will let us achieve the quality that will satisfy us, the quality gamers expect from us. Consequently, we have set the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for February 2015.
Dear gamers - we know many of you would have liked to play The Witcher 3 sooner, as soon as possible, even. We’re sorry to make you wait longer than you, or we, initially assumed you would. At the same time, we believe the game will prove to be worth the wait and meet the expectations you have of us. We believe The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be an exceptional RPG, one of the best, providing many hours of wonderful entertainment.
Dear shareholders – we are aware of the responsibility that rests with us and thank you for the trust you have granted us thus far. We firmly believe that quality – more than any other factor – determines a game’s success, and that the decision we have made is thus equally valid in business terms.

Between now (it actually started March 11) and March 18, gamers who spend at least $60 at the PlayStation Store will receive a code for a credit of $10. The code will be sent via PSN message or e-mail no later than March 24, 2014 and must be redeemed by March 31, 2014. Unfortunately, you're only allowed one $10 code per account. So, if there's something you've been eyeing for purchase, or if there's something you'd like to pre-order, now may be a good a time as any to get it done, and get a free $10 as a bonus.
Keep in mind, if it wasn't obvious already, this is for North America only.

Dark Souls II is upon us! Enjoy a gripping RPG experience where traps, hazards and enemies are waiting to punish you. Let’s not forget the cheeky lingering souls that decide to trick you by leaving false messages either. Blast them!

It looks like EA has rental servers in the works for console versions of Battlefield 4, or at least for the latest gen of consoles. Unfortunately, no solid details have been released other than what Battlelog Forums Community Manager, EA_Stiv, posted in response to a question posted by a forum member over on Battlelog.

inFAMOUS: Second Son is preparing for mayhem with its new protagonist, settings, and powers. To top off the changes, it's even on a new console. SuckerPunch's newest game was originally supposed to launch alongside the PlayStation 4 in November, but was unofficially delayed so that the developer could fine tune and polish the title to match their own strict standards. The long awaited sequel in the inFAMOUS universe is slated to release as the newest PS4 exclusive on March 21, 2014.
