The holiday season is almost upon us, and that means big video game companies like Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft are all out to prove they've got the best value. Sony has all the momentum on their side right now, but Nintendo is very confident in their holiday lineup and Microsoft is offering some great deals. With plenty of strong competition, Sony has put together a commercial showing off why they believe PlayStation 4 is "the best place to play this holiday." Check it out by clicking below!

According to EA Games, the Xbox One is getting closer and closer to the sales of its main competitor, Sony's PlayStation 4. The two consoles currently dominate the home console market, and have remained closely matched since their launches in November 2013.

Electronic Arts' chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen has said that "clearly Sony has jumped out to a lead with a great console and I think a great pricing strategy," but that the Xbox One will not be left in the dust. He believes that Christmas pricing strategies and consoles bundles will allow Microsoft to get back in the running.

The MMORPG juggernaut that is Destiny has some pretty cool graphics in-game, so it stands to reason that their actual cinematics would look even better. Proving this point is a new trailer for the game's upcoming expansion, known as "The Dark Below", that has been leaked online. To put it simply, it looks epic.

The expansion focuses on a long-forgotten enemy from below the surface of the Moon, and it will bring new story quests and missions, three new competitive multiplayer arenas, and a new Strike and Raid to the game.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's reign atop the Japanese charts has ended. According to the latest Media Create charts, both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare surpassed it, as did Pro Evolution Soccer 2015, knocking it all the way down to fourth.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker debuted at number seven and boosted Wii U sales by about 10,000 units, and Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax produced a similar sales surge for Vita. New Nintendo 3DS was still the top-selling hardware, selling another 47,000 units over the past week. Hit the jump for the full breakdown!

Bloodborne, the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive from the developer of Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, sounds like it's going to have lots of dungeon-crawling goodness. According to a description on the Japanese website for the game, the dungeon-esque underground ruins in the game "change appearance depending on the person that sees them." It could just be a spooky line meant to establish them as mysterious and foreboding, but from a gameplay perspective that sounds like randomly-generated content. Hopefully this leads to lots of replay value for Bloodborne!

Almost immediately after a glitch in the Sears computer system led to Wii U and 3DS consoles being sold for $60, some clever (and rather devious) Amazon users found a way to con Walmart into selling them a PlayStation 4 for just $90. 

Walmart recently launched a price-matching promotion that included online retailers Amazon. Apparently the people who made this decision didn't realize how easy it is to create a fake sales page that looks like the real deal. Using these fake listings, some Walmart customers were able to buy a PlayStation 4 for as low as $90 with one bold Twitter user  even posting a receipt for a $97 PlayStation 4. Walmart has since ended the price-matching promotion. I can't imagine why.

Just over a week after BioWare released new concept art for the upcoming Mass Effect game, an industry insider has revealed some details about the development and content of the game. NeoGAF's "shinobi602" (who has leaked details in the past) claims that the next Mass Effect has been in development for the new gen consoles since Q3 of 2012 (so it's already got a solid two years of progress behind it) and that it will definitely not be a timed exclusive on Xbox One or launch on last gen platforms..

Destiny's latest update — a major overhaul to help usher in the game's first expansion, The Dark Below — seems to possess an item that suggests the use of swords in the upcoming raid, Crota's End, according to DestinyDB. It's only speculation at this point, but a certain pair of legendary boots — Tireless Striders — contain a buff called "Swordbearer's Touch" that is said to give Guardians "a temporary increase to Agility while carrying the sword of a Hive Swordbearer." Could this "Swordbearer" ability be something similar to what we saw in "The Sword of Crota" mission in the game? I sure hope so, because I think it's safe to say that it was one of the more unique missions in the game.

Make the jump to check out some of the other gear to be featured in Crota's End when it launches on December 9th.  

The PlayStation 4's launch was a massive success, and with over 11 million consoles sold to date, it's safe to say that it's the most successful console this generation.

Using the slogan "4 the Players", the PlayStation 4 has been marketed as a console for the hardcore audience, and now Sony wishes to keep their momentum by marketing to the casual audience.

With Just Cause 3 having been officially announced for a little over a week, there is understandably little information available. Fortunately, some details have emerged, due in no small part to an interview from Game Informer. Avalanche Studios' own Christofer Sundberg states that, despite Just Cause 2's still-lauded PC multiplayer mod, there will be no multiplayer element in Just Cause 3 upon release. That isn't to say Avalanche won't patch in multiplayer content at a later date, however.

Moreover, director Roland Lesterlin stated that the in-game world would likely be of comparable size to Just Cause 2's sprawling overworld, but that Just Cause 3's map would be of greater detail. Hit the jump for some quotations from these key developers!
