Resident Evil 8 Will Land On Ps5 With 4K Ray Tracing and Support for Addaptive Triggers

An Official PlayStation Store listing for Resident Evil 8 has exposed us to a bunch of new details, including that RE8 will support 4K Ray Tracing and the Dual Sense controller’s adaptive triggers. On top of these two new goodies, we have it on good authority that we’ll experience super-fast loading times lanks to the PS5’s “ultra high-speed SSD.” The adaptive triggers will work together with haptic feedback to “simulate the effect of firing a real gun.” This feature, by the way, may be exclusive to the PS5, so this may be a good reason to make the switch from Xbox if you haven’t already. Adding to this, we still don’t know if Resident Evil 8 will feature 4K graphics and ray tracing on the Xbox Series X.  It’s easy to assume that it will, knowing that games like Watch Dog’s Legion will offer Ray Tracing, so it seems like a no-brainer. If you haven’t heard yet, new details about Resident Evil 8 were recently shared by developers, and Ethan Winters – the protagonist from RE7 –...

Sony Following Xbox’s Lead, May Grow Its First-Party Studios

As you probably know, Microsoft has started growing its first-party studios, with the most recent example being the purchase of ZeniMax Media and, consequently, Bethesda – maker of games like Doom Eternal, Fallout 76, and Wolfensteinv: Young Blood, among many others. Now, Sony has admitted that it’s open to expanding its in-house production network. Does this signal what will be the focus of the next-gen console war? Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, had a sit down with Reuters to discuss the company’s next moves following the early success of the PlayStation 5. Unfortunately, one bad piece of news that came from that is that he indicated demand is so high, that there may not be enough stock for everyone that wants one to actually get one on launch day. Back to the point at hand, Sony now has to come up with ways to make the PS5 a must-buy, and to do that, it could depend on adding more PlayStation exclusives, something that can easily be done with the acquisition of new in-house...

Game Patches Have Drastically Reduced Loading Time on Several PS4 Games

It was just last week that a new patch for The Last of Us: Remastered on the PS4 managed to reduce the game’s loading time by a drastic and unexpected 70-percent. To put this into perspective, the game used to take around a minute and a half to load, but with the new patch, you’re playing in just 13 seconds – that’s a huge improvement indeed, but The Last of Us: Remastered, isn’t the only game to see such a big improvement. A number of first-part Sony Exclusives have also been patched in the same style over the past few weeks, including God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Until Dawn, Dreams, Concrete Genie, and even Ghost of Tsushima. Not all games saw such a massive improvement, but God of War and Ghost of Tsushima saw crazy improvements while reports are coming in that loading times for Until Dawn are, basically, non-existent. Check that out in this video: Right, so it appears these #PS5 B/C updates that #PS4 games are getting are even having a huge effect...

Is Sucker Punch Working on a Sequel to Ghost of Tsushima?

Ghost of Tsushima is still a newborn baby as far as time on the market goes, and now a new job listing from studio Sucker Punch could be hinting that a sequel could be in the works. According to the aforementioned job posting, Sucker Punch is looking for a new narrative writer to join its team. This person would “help create engaging narrative content for our upcoming projects.” The listing calls for the right applicant to have knowledge of writing character-driven stories withing a “AAA open world game.” If that doesn’t sell it for you yet, one of the job requirements is to have “a desire to write stories set in feudal Japan” along with an added plus of “having a knowledge of feudal Japanese history.” Ghost of Tsushima is set in late-13th century feudal Japan, so if Sucker Punch is looking for someone with knowledge of this era and the desire to write about it, it could be a clear indication that a sequel is in the works. But, does this mean a sequel is...

The PS5 Is Backward Compatible For Almost All PS4 Games

Sony has finally spilled the beans on backward compatibility, and we have some good news. In a blog post, Sony has confirmed that all PlayStation 4 games, with the exception of 11 games will be playable on the PS5. That’s 11 unplayable games out of more than 4,000, so we’re going to go ahead and write this one off as a win. Of all the games that aren’t compatible with the PlayStation 5, the only one that you’ll probably even recognize is Hitman Go: Definite Edition. The rest are, well, not important anyway.

New Price Leak Paints The PS5 As The More Expensive Console

Now that Microsoft has announced pricing for the Xbox Series X and digital-only Xbox Series S, the world is waiting for Sony’s answer. From the look of things, you might want to prepare for disappointment as a new leak paints the Sony PS5 as the more expensive console, and considerably so at that. According to the leaked image posted on Twitter (shown below) the PS5 will be priced at €499.90, which comes to $594 or £460 at current exchange rates. The PS5 digital edition is listed at €399.90, which converts to $475 or £369. #PS5€399/€499(El Corte Inglés ~ One of the biggest spanish retailers) pic.twitter.com/B6o3aJhAqG— AllGamesDelta (@AllGamesDelta_) September 13, 2020 If these prices are, in fact, accurate, that means you’ll have to pony up an extra $100 for the more powerful PS5 or $176 of the digital-only PS5 – something that would give the Series X quite the edge. Of course, when you look at sales history between the two companies, this price difference probably won’t be enough to paint the next-gen Xbox as the king...

Everything We Know About Diablo 4

First of all, it looks like Diablo 4 will be the best one of its series. In Diablo 3 we got to see a celestial battle between angels and demons, but nothing all that scary. Now looking at the new trailers (embedded below,) from the first seconds we can feel the lack of hope; the fear crawling down our spines. From the trailer, we already get symbols like 3 men required, only 3 survive. The game also presents to us, at the gate, a symbol of the main demon of Diablo 4, the boss, the biggest and the dangerous creature we can find in the game - Lilith. So when will Diablo 4 be released and what you can you expect? This guide covers everything we know so far. (9-13-2020 - we've updated this guide to cover everything that's happened over the last 8 months in Diablo 4's developement, so be sure to check out what's changed below!) Diablo 4 Release Date As of now, there’s no official word on when Blizzard is planning to...

PS5 Pre-Orders Could Start This Week, But Don’t Count On It

Less than two weeks ago, Sony launched a dedicated PS5 pre-order registration page, which wasn’t for pre-ordering but to put your name into a pool to be considered worthy of pre-ordering the PS5 and a limited number of each accessory. Now, a new rumor suggests that pre-orders could open as soon as September 9th, 2020, but is there any truth to the rumor or is it just vaporware? The rumor that the PS5 will move into pre-order status on September 9th comes courtest of @IronManPS5 on Twitter. And, that’s part of the reason why this rumor isn’t all that believable. He has accurately leaked (or predicted) some things in the past, but he’s also made a fair number of mistakes as well. With the pro-order opening date being just two days away from now, you’d think Sony would have confirmed the date, but there’s still zero confirmation from Sony or PlayStation.
