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

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.
