By Rebecca Smith,
Playstation 4

As usual, the Playstation 4 content is the biggest section. There are eight new titles, two of which are retail releases. The other six are digital release, one of which is the latest title for the Hasbro Game Channel. There are trophy-bearing expansions for three titles, although the trophies for The Escapists have not yet scanned onto the site. Of course, if none of it appeals to you, there's the chance to pre-order the latest title from publisher Sierra Entertainment.
