Deus Ex: Mankind Divided finally released today, and it seems to be doing pretty well so far. If you happen to be one of the many players enjoying the newly released title, then you might be interested in the season pass associated with the game. As it so happens, Eidos and Square Enix released information detailing what is included in the DLC collection earlier this week alongside the general release date for unreleased packs. Two DLC Missions and a slew of upgrade items are just a few of the items that are up for grabs.

Sony fans have been enjoying the benefits of PlayStation Now for over a year, paying a fee to allow them to download and play a number of excellent games from past systems on Sony's hardware, but it looks like it won't be restricted to PlayStation hardware for much longer. A new announcement posted to the PlayStation Blog today reveals that the company is bringing the Now service, which holds a library of over 400 games and is constantly growing, to Windows PC. Alongside this announcement, they have also officially unveiled a USB wireless adapter for DualShock 4 controllers, which we first saw signs of a month ago.

It's already possible to setup DualShock 4 controllers on a PC (Screencheat is a prime example, supporting 4 controllers with no extra software), but it seems that an official solution may be on its way. A USB Adapter was recently listed on Amazon France for around $20 or €17.62. The only details provided were a possible September 15th release date and the fact that the wireless adapter was indeed from Sony for the PlayStation 4 platform. It's speculated that this device could allow easy linking to a PC without additional software or add extra Bluetooth devices to the PlayStation 4.

Of course, nothing is confirmed, but you can check out the listing here.

The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise has spawned more than its fair share of internet memes over the years (hell, that's basically all their official Twitter account does), and one of the most famous is slapping "& Knuckles" onto the end of game titles, à la Sonic & Knuckles. This humorous reference has found its way into Deus Ex: Mankind Divided as a rather hilarious Easter Egg, but the full story actually goes back over a year. Hit the jump for more!

Blizzard Entertainment recently announced that they'd be releasing a new map for Overwatch, their incredibly popular team-based shooter. Eichenwald, a map consisting of a German castle and village, is now available to try out on the Public Test Realm. The map's medieval aesthetic reminds some of Dark Souls, so it's fitting that Blizzard has included a nod to the popular and punishing game franchise. A room within the castle contains a sword that has been thrust into a flaming mound, which is an obvious reference to the bonfires of Dark Souls.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise, developer Capcom is re-releasing the fourth, fifth, and sixth main-series installments on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Resident Evil 5 and 6 have already been re-launched, and Resident Evil 4 will join them on August 30th. Capcom has released two videos to show off the classic game running on PlayStation 4, including footage of The Village and an Ashley escort mission through The Castle.

The NPD Group has released its full report for the past month, highlighting hardware and software sales data in the US during July. With few major titles releasing during July, the software charts were dominated by evergreen titles. Grand Theft Auto V, which made its debut in 2013, was the number one game in the US for the month, and Monster Hunter Generations was the only July release to crack the top ten. The immensely popular Overwatch is listed at number two, but the NPD Group does not have access to Battle.net sales, so it could potentially be the true champion.

We learned a few weeks ago that Sony will be holding an event on September 7th, and though they haven't confirmed it, rumor has it that that's where they'll unveil the PlayStation 4 Neo. Chances are now looking good that the recently leaked PlayStation 4 Slim will get its official announcement at the same time, according to the Wall Street Journal. In a new report published this weekend, they revealed that "people familiar with the matter" had informed them that the Neo's reveal will be accompanied by "a new PlayStation 4 standard model."

A few weeks ago, Crystal Dynamics announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be getting some new DLC later this year, including a new story-based pack set within the mysterious Croft Manor. Lara's family home will be free to explore and investigate in the "Blood Ties" pack, though there will also be plenty of dangers lurking in the shadows for the Tomb Raider to face off against. Included in this pack is an alternate mode, "Lara's Nightmare," in which Lara must defend the manor from zombie hordes. A new trailer was released this morning to show off both of these modes, so make the jump to check it out!

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is getting an open beta, as announced by the game's publisher, Bandai Namco. Details for the beta have not been disclosed yet, however, we do know that the new hub area, Conton City, will be explorable. The city is seven times larger than the hub of the previous installment and is where players will attain quests and different items.

Update: Eurogamer has decided to removed the video evidence of the new PlayStation 4 model. This decision was reached after they received legal advice on the matter. 

Original story: Yesterday we reported that a supposed PlayStation 4 Slim model had leaked on UK auction site Gumtree. The initial report contained some rather compelling photographic evidence, but images can be faked, so Digital Foundry's Richard Leadbetter tracked down the buyer of the upcoming console and acquired video evidence as well. A new video uploaded to Eurogamer's YouTube account gives us a close look at the upcoming console and shows it booting up.

With PlayStation Plus, Sony's customers can play online, enjoy discounts on popular games, receive free games, and more. Unfortunately, this service is about to get slightly pricier. In an update to last month's PlayStation Plus free games list, Sony has announced that they're raising the yearly price from $49.99 to $59.99. Additionally, the price of the three month option is increasing from $17.99 to $24.99. A single month's subscription will continue to cost $9.99 in the US, but it's increasing to $11.99 CAD in Canada. These new prices will go into effect on September 22nd.

Final Fantasy XV is a highly-anticipated RPG a decade in the making, and fans were prepared to dive into the fantasy world on September 30th, but developer Square Enix recently confirmed that the game has been delayed to November 29th. The extra time will be used to polish the game and to add some extra content, and it also gives Square Enix more time to market the game to fans.

The latest upload to Final Fantasy XV's official YouTube channel focuses on the English voice acting cast, introducing the game's prominent characters and the talented people who are helping bring them to life. The video also delves into some of the inspiration and motivation behind each character's personality and voice. You can check it out by clicking below!

South Park has always been known for pushing the boundaries, and they're looking to do the same with their new game, The Fractured But Whole. This past week, the team at Ubisoft unveiled a new peripheral dubbed the "Nosulus Rift," which fills your nose with fart smells whenever your in-game character passes gas. Its name is an obvious reference to the Oculus Rift, and the team at Oculus VR isn't taking that as an insult—in fact, Oculus head of studios Jason Rubin calls it "a moment of absolute pride."
