When Sony and Naughty Dog first launched The Last of Us, it was back in 2013. The game was initially designed for the Sony PS3 console, although they later followed up with a remaster for the PS4. Now according to a report from Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, it seems that Sony is looking to remake the game for the PS5.
Right now, the Sony PS5 has a storage issue where due to the size of the games, gamers pretty much can only store a few games at a time before they run out of space. To make matters worse, there is currently no M.2 NVMe drives that Sony has whitelisted that supports the PS5, which leaves players in a bit of a bind.
If you thought that the Sony PS5 was kind of huge, then you might need a little perspective because YouTuber ZHC has revealed what can only be described as the world’s largest PS5 to date. This unit is said to be 100 times larger than the actual console itself, but here’s the kicker, it actually works.
Last year it was revealed in leaked photos that it seems that the Sony PS5 could offer up more customizability in terms of design due to the plates being removable. This led to some companies offering to create custom PS5 plates, but this was quickly shut down as Sony sent them legal letters asking them to desist.
The analog sticks on gaming controllers are essentially mechanical parts. This means that over time and with frequent usage, they can get damaged. However, the question is how long can we realistically expect them to last before they start displaying problematic behavior? In the case of Sony’s PS5 DualSense controllers, not very long.
Our consoles have come a long way in terms of performance. Back with the PS4, gamers who wanted higher resolution and better frame rates had to purchase the PS4 Pro, but that changed with the PS5 which can obviously handle games at higher performances. But what about games that were designed for previous-gen consoles?
As Sony is trying to ramp up production of its PS5 console, it seems that scalpers are continuing to take advantage of the shortage in consoles, which we suppose was something that they had a hand in, at least in part. According to a recent tweet by Carnage, a scalper group based in the UK, they have boasted that they have secured an additional 2,000 units of the PS5.
When buying furniture, it helps if you know what you plan to put in it. For example, if you want to buy a TV console unit, you might want to take into account the size of other gadgets that you’ll be fitting in it, like the size of your soundbar, maybe an amplifier, your set-top box, and so on. Of course, you will need to know the sizes beforehand, but […]
Nintendo certainly turned things around for themselves following the debacle that was the Wii U. The Switch has managed to captivate gamers around the world, thanks to its fun family games, strong first-party titles, and also its hybrid nature that allows gamers to play it on the game or on a TV at home.
Due to the popularity of the PlayStation and Xbox brand, it’s not surprising that when the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles were released there was a rush to buy them. As it would be understandably impossible for Sony and Microsoft to meet this onslaught of demand, naturally this would result in temporary shortages.
While CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the more highly anticipated games of 2020, it seems that for some gamers, especially those on the PS4 and the PS5, the launch was less than ideal. So much so that gamers are now reporting that Sony is apparently issuing refunds for gamers who request for it.
Right now, people or groups who are buying up PS5 consoles and reselling them at a marked up price are a huge problem. From what we’ve noticed, a lot of these scalpers are trying to sell the consoles at almost double the retail price that online retailers are selling the console at, and are netting a pretty decent profit out of it.
The concept of scalping is buying high demand items and then flipping them for a huge markup. This is based on the extremely high demand for certain items that are either difficult to get or are limited in nature. This is the case for the Sony PS5 in which Sony is struggling to try and meet the demand of the market right now, creating a space for scalpers.
With every console generation, companies tend to make changes to the design and features of its gaming controllers, and the Sony PS5’s DualSense controllers are no exception. They come with adaptive triggers which EA is taking advantage of with its FIFA 21 game, where the controls will actually “tighten” as the players in the game get fatigued.
If you are having a tough time getting your hands on Sony’s PS5 console, then you have scalpers to blame. This is because according to a report from Business Insider, it appears that a UK based scalper group calling themselves CrepChiefNotify have managed to nab as many as 3,500 units in total and are reselling them at premium prices.
Whenever a new console generation is released, companies also release redesigned game controllers that are supposed to be better in the sense that they might come with additional features, a new spiffy design, better ergonomics, and so on. If you’re enjoying your time with the Sony PS5 DualSense controller, you’ll be pleased to learn that Steam will now support it as well.
While it is tempting to rush out and get the latest gadget, sometimes it might be better to wait. This is because as much testing and prototyping a company does, it’s hard to predict how a device behaves when it gets put into the hands of thousands of users who are doing all kinds of things with them, some of which might result in unintended consequences.
Despite Sony’s best attempts, the PS5 was too hyped where initial stocks ran out in a very short amount of time. This means that gamers who failed to secure themselves a unit will have to wait until new units are back in stock, but some people are betting that there are gamers out there who probably can’t wait.
While smartphone companies are working at trying to make the slimmer/thinnest devices possible, the same isn’t necessarily true for consoles. In fact, many have found that the next-gen series of consoles from Sony is actually rather big, and it seems that if the designers at Sony had their way, it could have been even bigger.
Right now, the current standard of video game prices is set at $60 for triple-A titles, not taking into account deluxe editions or collector editions. This has been the standard for years, but with next-gen consoles, we’re starting to see some publishers move towards pricing games at around the $70 mark which is expected to become the new standard.
