    It came as a complete surprise this morning when the PlayStation 4 store page for NBA Playgrounds went live with the ability to download what would appear to be the full game and for free. NBA Playgrounds is supposed to be $20 when it releases on Tuesday, May 9 for PS4, XB1, PC, and Switch. It wouldn't be the first time though that a game had been accidentally pushed live with the licenses being revoked later once the error was corrected. At this point it remains unclear whether the down...

The game will release as a $20 digital download in May on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. NBA Playgrounds will be the first sports game from develo...

    Two untraditional sports games have recently arrived in Disc Jam and 3on3 Freestyle. The former a tennis and air hockey mashup generating great word-of-mouth while the latter the first street basketball game for a console in 10 years and free-to-play but gone largely unnoticed. With Disc Jam free to PlayStation Plus members (it's also available on PC where it's on sale for its first week) both of the games offer the opportunity to play without any initial investment. Disc Jam will be fr...
