Are you a member of Sony’s subscription service for their PlayStation family? Curious as to what next month’s games are going to be? Well step on up as we’ve got confirmation as to what they’ll be!

PS4 owners will get the brawltastic Injustice: Gods Among Us Gold Edition, a DC Comics based fighter pitting your favorite heroes and villains against each other by the makers of Mortal Kombat. Also on deck for the PS4 is Secret Ponchos, a stylized wild west multiplayer gunslinging extravganza.

PS3 players get the creepy yet good Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut, a game that has given more that one reviewer serious chills. Not ready to get scared? Looking for some action? Sony is looking out for you as they also have on tap the Hitman HD Trilogy which includes Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts and Hitman: Blood Money.

Never ones to forget their handheld fans, the PlayStation Plus lineup has the “2 minute tower defense game” Final Horizon for the PS Vita. Finally for all three systems is the arcade shooter Titan Attacks. The PS Blog claims this one is easy to learn but hard to master so prep this bad boy and prove them wrong!

What do you think geeks? Good lineup or does it need work? Is it still better than Microsoft’s Games with Gold? Hit those comments and sound off!

It’s the middle of June and you know what that means, more free games from Microsoft! The company’s take on Sony’s popular Playstation Plus program has garnered some fair concerns but this month they kicked it up to celebrate its anniversary. Xbox 360 owners can now download two fine games to their ever-expanding library- Charlie Murder and Super Street Fighter IV.

Charlie Murder is a solo or four person co-op side scrolling beat ‘em up with a dash of RPG elements thrown in. Rock out with your band mates as you gain fans for finishing moves, unearth mythological relics and tat up your avatar all while hoarding all the phat loot. Charlie Murder regularly retails for $9.99 and is rated “M” for Mature.

The other free game this period is the redo I guess to Street Fighter IV. We’ve all heard of Street Fighter, we all sank quarters in the machines back in the day screaming “NEXT!” as we sucked down copious amounts of Mountain Dew and Sour Patch Kids. This is the newest incarnation of the oft-played classic, adding more characters to round out the roster to 39! I mean really, who is going to master all 39 of those blokes? I’m lucky if I remember a combo or two! Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition usually goes for $29.99 and is rated “T” for Teen.

What say you geeks, is Microsoft working towards a better Games with Gold? Can they match the offerings Sony has had with PS Plus? Sound off in the comments after the jump!
