Next Week on the US/CA PSN: April 1st, 2014 – Sh-no Joke

With new release Tuesday happening to fall on April Fools Day, you’ll have to be careful when reading certain things on the internet, because they’ll likely be fake – especially anything that says the next Halo/Gears of War will be on PlayStation.

As you dodge all the April Fools jokes, there will be some new additions to the PlayStation Store, including Mercenary Kings on PS4, MLB 14: The Show on PS3 and PS Vita (the PS4 version is out in May), and more.
