Final Sales Number For The PS4 Is Truly Staggering

If you were to ask someone what the best console of all time is, the answer you get will probably massively depend on their own bias. If you asked me, I’d probably say the Wii U, albeit mostly because it’s a funny answer to give (that said, I do have a very big soft spot for it, and I’m still wracked with guilt from unplugging it to make room for my PS5).

Microsoft Claims Sony Paying Devs To Keep Their Games Off Game Pass

I guess the console wars aren’t over then? Sigh. Recently, former Xbox executive Peter Moore claimed that Microsoft had “encouraged the console wars,” which is perhaps something better left unsaid, Peter. Regardless, we thought we’d entered an age of peaceful coexistence but oh no. The war between Xbox and PlayStation has seemingly been reignited as Microsoft has claimed that Sony is paying off devs to sabotage Xbox Game Pass.

Buying Virtual Real Estate In Metaverse Is "Dumbest" Thing Ever, Says Billionaire

Spending real cash on virtual land in the metaverse is the "dumbest sh*t ever", said Mark Cuban, the billionaire entrepreneur and majority owner of the Dallas Mavericks. He's not the only one to criticise the longevity and viability of the metaverse. Ken Kutaragi, the creator of the PlayStation, said that he struggled to see the point in the concept of being quasi-real, and Mark Zuckerberg's take on the metaverse was a bold, brave step into... a boardroom. And now, Cuban has weighed in on the topic. Speaking to cryptocurrency centric YouTube channel Altcoin Daily, he didn't hold back with his opinions on the decision making skills of those who have forked out for a plot of virtual real estate.

Disney+ Gets Massive Amount Of New Subscribers Despite Upcoming Price Hike

A lot of streaming services have been losing subscribers this year - back in April, it was reported that Netflix had suffered its biggest loss in 10 years (in part due to suspending its service in Russia). Then, only last week, it was revealed that in the UK, between April and June, around 800,000 households cancelled their subscriptions to various video-on-demand services - Prime Video was hit the hardest, with a total of 589,000 subscribed households cancelling.

'God Of War Ragnar​​ök' Is Forcing Other Devs To Move Their Games, Rumour Says

We’ve come a long way, God of War fans. Earlier this year, we sat through showcase after showcase wondering when the release date for God of War Ragnar​​ök would drop but just like the beginning of Fimbulwinter, we knew the day was inevitable - and it came. God of War Ragnar​​ök will be ours to own on 9 November, but the release date may be causing other studios to rethink their plans.

New PS5 Game Trailer Is So Bad People Are Already Memeing It

Forspoken, an action role-playing game from the developer of Final Fantasy XV, recently released a new trailer showing off the central character's awesome abilities. Shame that its narration is so incredibly cringe and accordingly has been memed into next week. Frey is a young woman from New York, down on...

'The Last Of Us' TV Show Casts Sam And Henry, But There's Big Differences

HBO’s adaptation of The Last of Us inches ever closer and oh man, I’m excited. It’s thought that the ten-episode first season is costing HBO in excess of $100 million dollars, and leaked set videos of Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in action as Joel and Ellie haven’t disappointed. We also know that video game actors Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson will return in undisclosed key roles, and now the casting of two fan-favourite characters has been announced.

Microsoft Says It "Wouldn't Be Profitable" To Make COD Xbox Exclusive

Back when Microsoft announced its planned acquisition of Activision, and people realised quite how many big IPs it’d be set to own if the deal goes through, the question on many gamers’ minds was whether or not Call of Duty would become an Xbox exclusive franchise. Although it was reported that the next three CoD games would remain on PlayStation, even Sony recently expressed concerns about whether the games would remain multi-platform in the future.

Disney+ Is Getting A Price Hike And A New Tier

In a shareholder meeting yesterday, Disney confirmed that ads are coming to the lowest subscription tier of Disney Plus - and if you want an ad-free experience, you'll have to shell out a little more every month. In spite of the rising costs of living, Disney reported that another 14.4...

Gamer Builds Travel PC To Move To Tropical Island

In preparation for their move to an off-grid island in Panamá, this gamer built their own portable (and water-resistant) PC. Necessity is the mother of invention, after all. Size matters not in the case of this carry-on rig. The system uses an RTX 3090, 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X, 128GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, a 2TB of NVMe SSD with a 4TB 2.5" SSD. The radiator fans are exposed (as tempting as it may be to stick your finger in there) to draw cool air into the setup and the GPU fans act to expel the heated air. When it comes to boarding flights, Reddit user technicallyinpanama said that they've breezed through with nothing more than a swab test for the gizmo.

‘Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered’ PC Review: The Ultimate Port Of An Amazing Game

From the top of the Empire State Building, New York City stretches out invitingly, practically begging me to leap into the air. As I descend into the gaps between the countless buildings, I shoot a web into an unseen support, and make Manhattan my playground just like we’ve seen Peter Parker do a million times. There’s something about being the Webhead that has always appealed to me, and Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered channels that perfectly.

Star Wars Fan Creates Super-Cut Of Order 66, As It Happened

It’s no secret that Star Wars fans are endlessly creative. In case you missed it, one fan recently edited Obi-Wan Kenobi down into a feature film and it’s well worth a watch. Another fan created what is perhaps the best X-Wing dogfight we’ve ever seen. Lucasfilm should really hire these folks but in the meantime, we can heap praise on their work - and this latest Order 66 project is equally as epic.

Google Stadia Is Finally Getting A Feature People Might Actually Like

Google Stadia just hasn’t had the greatest of times, has it? I’m sure there are people out there enjoying what Stadia has to offer but I can’t say it’s the hottest property on the block. Previously, Google confirmed that they’re “working really hard” on the future of Stadia but we’re yet to see what that future looks like. Well, Stadia is finally getting a feature that fans might actually be pleased with.

PlayStation 5 Is Now Officially More Popular Than Nintendo GameCube

Gone are the days of the console wars, which we now know were stoked by Xbox, but it’s still fun from time to time to see how our favourite consoles are selling. It’s still pretty hard to actually get your hands on a chunky PlayStation 5 but stocks are steadily increasing, and it means that PS5 sales have now overtaken a hugely popular classic Nintendo console.
