Some of November’s PlayStation Plus games revealed early, possibly in error

Video games are now so leaky that even free stuff isn’t safe.

PlayStation Plus leak

Video games are now so leaky that even free stuff isn’t safe.

Usually, next month’s PlayStation Plus games are revealed towards the tail end of the preceding month. Anything in the final week of the month is the standard.

But not this month. This month, we’ve learned about November’s PS4 lineup of free PlayStation Plus games on the 4th of October. You have to think that’s something of a mistake.

Twitter user Nibel first noticed the appearance of some of November’s PS Plus games – specifically, Bulletstorm and Yakuza Kiwami for PS4 – on the US PlayStation website.

If you follow the link in the tweet, however, you’ll now find it showing a banner for October’s PS4 PlayStation Plus games on the banner advert. That’s Friday the 13th: The Game and Laser League, if you’ve not been paying attention.

It’s not a stretch to imagine that some portion of video game leaks – probably a fairly high ratio, if we’re feeling cynical – are deliberate, in a sneaky guerilla marketing sense. For Sony to deliberately leak next month’s PS Plus games early, though? That doesn’t make a great deal of sense.

We think you can most likely chalk this one up to some sort of administrative error.

How did we do?
