Playstation Plus has been a huge success for Sony and it's about to get a lot more friendly for the gamers that take advantage of it.

Though the membership service includes regular deals on games and movies, the big draw has been the rotating selection of free titles that come with the $18 for three months or $50 every year subscription price.

Now, players who pay for that program will have a say in which games Sony will offer for free the following month.

The Official Playstation Blog announced the feature and offered a few new details

The game with the most votes will automatically be included in our future free game lineup for PlayStation Plus. If your pick didn't make the lineup, don't worry. In the first promotion, PlayStation Plus members can get the runner ups at a discount. We love to listen to our fans – and we're super excited to launch this promotion.

We'll have more details for you soon on when voting begins, what titles will be up for voting, and how you can cast your vote.



While we're on the subject, the Playstation Plus games for Playstation 4 are Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Limbo. Sound Shapes and Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones will be available for PS4, PS3 and the Playstation Vita. CastleStorm will be available for the PS3 and the Vita, while God of War Ascension will be available for PS3.

Mafia game developer 2K Czech put out something very similar to an announcement for Mafia 3 July 28.

On the Mafia game Twitter account, they said to wait for an official reveal Aug. 5 and pointed hungry, open world fans to their YouTube page for a trailer on the same day.

But isn't this already an official reveal?

Not coincidentally at all, Aug. 5 is the same day that Gamescom, the worlds largest video game convention, begins in Cologne, Germany. So, obvs, that European-based studio wants to show off their new game with others who live on the same continent.

Until then, you'll just have to sit on your brass-knuckled hands and wait for more information.

Here's the tweet:

Surely you've seen all the stuff going around about Pluto after New Horizons provided us with the clearest shot we've ever had of the dwarf planet, but did you know the CPU powering the New Horizons probe is the same CPU that once powered the ORIGINAL PLAYSTATION CONSOLE? We're talking about the PS1 here, the console that brought you this:



this:


and this:


NASA launched New Horizons in 2006, so they could have used at least a PS2 equivalent CPU, but I guess NASA just likes to keep it classic.

A recent survey of more than 1,400 teenagers revealed most young gamers don't care about playing male characters, and don't want to see objectified women in their games. According to the survey,
47% of middle school boys and 61% of high school boys agreed or strongly agreed that women in games are too often treated as sex objects. Those boys wished to see a character that had "some dignity."

70% of girls and 78% of boys said the gender of a game's protagonist does not affect their desire to play it.

Of the male respondents who identified themselves as "gamers," 55% think there should be more female heroes in games, and 57% believe that in game females are too often treated as sex objects.

The survey was by no means comprehensive, and is from a fairly small group, but it does suggest a trend among young consumers. Are your views in line with what the survey found?

This weekend at CEO 2015, the fighting game tournament got a little intense. Not the actual gameplay, mind you, but the pre-show.  Watch competitive player Kenneth "Stone Cold" "K-Brad" Bradley enter the, er, ring for an Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 match. I kid you not, he knocks a dude out.


Another player, Dieminion, took a much stealthier approach to his entrance:


Dude's like a ninja!
