If you end up winning a gold PlayStation 4 from Taco Bell as part of Sony’s new partnership with the fast food giant, people might ask you how you got your hands on the nice-looking system. That’s the theme for this new PS4 Taco Bell commercial that’s airing now on TV. We won’t spoil the story, but it’s a good one.
Watch the video below.
Now through November 4 in the United States only, Sony will give away a limited edition gold PS4 bundle every 10 minutes for a total of around 6,000 systems before the campaign ends.
You can win one by purchasing a specially branded Taco Bell Big Box meal for a chance to win. Winners will receive a gold PS4 and matching DualShock 4, as well as a copy of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and a voucher for one year of PlayStation Plus.
The video also comes with the disclaimer that “PS4 not made of real gold.” If you’re looking for a PS4 that’s actually made of gold, check out this $ 13,700 gold-plated PS4. Not counting that system, this is the first time Sony has offered a PS4 in gold, though Japan is getting a new gold controller.
Microsoft has announced that Games With Gold will now include two new Xbox One games every month starting in July, and revealed the latest crop of new titles.
Xbox Games With Gold program has steadily gotten better since it began, and July’s offerings are pretty great. Among the new titles are Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag for Xbox One and Gears of War 3 for Xbox 360.
If you are an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you can pick up the following games for free during the upcoming month:
Considering the recently announced Xbox One backwards compatibility for 360 games, it’s a good idea to pick up the 360 offerings this month. Even though these specific games aren’t playable yet on the Xbox One, Microsoft is planning to roll out greater support as the service becomes more widely available this fall.

Publisher Kalypso on Wednesday announced that its upcoming dungeon-based RTS Dungeons 2 has officially gone gold, meaning development on the title is finished ahead of its release for PC in April. The game arrives April 24 through Steam, while a physical version will be available on April 28.
The publisher also has announced the game’s minimum and recommended PC system requirements. Can your system run the game? Check out the requirements below to find out.
Much like the classic game Dungeon Keeper from Peter Molyneux, Dungeons 2 asks you to build a network of dungeons, recruit an army of evil minions that you can keep in line by slapping them around with your Hand of Terror, and defend your dungeon from invading heroes. A new addition to Dungeons 2 is the ability to take your armies above ground, and fight the humans in more traditional real-time strategy battles.
Dungeons 2 Minimum system requirements:
CPU: AMD or Intel, 3GHz Dual-Core or 2.6 GHz Quad-Core
