PlayStation 5 exclusive rumored coming to Xbox Series X soon

PlayStation 5 exclusive rumored coming to Xbox Series X soon. At the launch of the PS5, Sony had a variety of true and console exclusives, including Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon's Souls, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Bugsnax, and Godfall. And one of these is apparently coming to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series sometime between May and June.

The PS5 exclusive coming to Xbox Series S and Series X is "Godfall" an action-RPG from Counterplay Games and Gearbox.

According to the rumor, the game will hit the pair of Xbox consoles sometime in May or June, and there are also plans to bring the game to Xbox Game Pass, though it's not clear if this will be at the launch of the Xbox ports or come later. What is mentioned is that the game is also coming to Google Stadia later this year and that a new collector's edition is releasing sometime this year as well.

Keep in mind, that the rumor came from an anonymous source over on 4chan. And this is a red flag in itself. While anonymous 4chan leakers have provided genuine leaks and accurate rumors in the past -- including some very high profile ones -- a lot of garbage and misinformation comes the way of it as well. In other words, take all of this with your favourite cooking seasoning for now.

While the source in question is shoddy, the rumor has been making the rounds. Despite this, none of the implicated parties... Microsoft, Google, Gearbox, or Counterplay Games... have commented on the rumor and its claims.

Assassin's Creed 2022 Set During The Hundred Years' War, According to an Insider

Where will the Assassin's Creed series take us next? The long-running Ubisoft franchise has taken us to so many times, centuries and places over the past years and when - the next game will whisk players off to has become a strong topic on gaming community and internet. 

One of the more prevalent rumours currently floating around is that the 2022 Assassin's Creed will deliver a medieval China setting, but a number of clues seemingly dropped by a prominent leaker point towards a different time and place entirely.

Assassin's Creed 2022 Set During The Hundred Years' War, According to an Insider

As spotted by PerformerRelevant465 on Reddit, video game YouTuber and reliable Assassin's Creed leaker xj0nathan recently dropped a new video with a number of cryptic symbols and hints for viewers to decipher as he dove into some of the more recent rumours regarding Assassin's Creed 2022.

In the video, fans spotted things like a Templar Cross and binary code that translates to 2022. Users also noticed GPS coordinates leading to Dubrovnik, Croatia and Schleswig Holstein in Germany, as well as a colour-coded clue pointing towards the blue, white, and red of the French flag.

"I managed to decipher your code," reads one comment underneath the leaker's video. "The #'s are actually colors that make the colors Blue, White and Red. With the binary code of your leak you marked 2022; the year of the next game The kind of small map is in fact the north-east of France in the Lorraine region which borders Germany and France. With the geographical coordinate, he is in Sofia, Bulgaria (place where the next game will be made)."

That's a fair bit of information to take in, but a lot of fans seem to agree it points to one specific period in history: the Hundred Years' War. This conflict was, as the name suggests, an incredibly long and brutal clash between England and France that took place across Western Europe over succession to the French throne. The whole story affair lasted from 1337 to 1453, so it would probably be more accurate to call it the 116-year war.

Although, this isn't the first time we've heard rumours of the next Assassin's Creed heading to medieval Europe. Earlier this year reports surfaced that the new game's working title is Assassin's Creed Champions, and that it'll be announced later this year and released at some point in 2022. xj0nothan had also suggested around this time that the rest of 2021 will be dedicated to Assassin's Creed Valhalla and its two major expansions, but that Ubisoft Sofia (as mentioned above) is leading development on the new game with support from other studios within the company.

Xbox Consoles New Browser Can Stream Steam Games, Including Death Stranding

And yes some Xbox users are now able to stream PC games to their consoles, via a test version of Microsoft’s Edge Chromium-powered browser and GeForce Now.

As reported lately, Xbox testers in the Alpha Skip-Ahead group can now access the updated Microsoft Edge web browser on Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X consoles.

Thanks to the improved compatibility support with Chromium, the browser will run web browser apps such as those for Google Stadia, Discord and more.

Crucially, GeForce Now’s compatibility means that Xbox players can stream many of their Steam games to their console, including PlayStation console exclusive Death Stranding, and ray-traced enabled versions of Cybperunk 2077, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and more.

GeForce Now also supports the Epic Games Store, which means users can stream its store exclusives including Hitman 3, Fortnite and Rogue Company.

Sony’s other former console exclusives Horizon Zero Dawn and Detroit: Become Human are not currently supported by the streaming service.

According to Joe Chip (in a video below), because the Edge browser does not currently support a mouse on Xbox, some games which require mouse and keyboard, such as Quake 2 RTX, do not play well via the browser.

GeForce Now is available for free, as well as via a subscription for faster access and RTX support.

The service differs from other services such as Google’s Stadia by allowing players to stream their existing Steam and Epic Game Store libraries onto a number of devices such as smartphones or laptops.

It was confirmed on Sunday that the new Edge Chromium-powered browser can run Google Stadia, allowing console users to stream its library of games.

As noted in a video by Thurrott’s Brad Sams, the new Xbox browser could allow console players to stream games to their console via Microsoft’s own xCloud in the future, once Microsoft publicly adds web browser support.

The new Xbox Edge browser should also improve compatibility with services like Skype or Discord through the web, as well as browser-based games.

Man Purchased PS5 and Had it Installed as 5G Router By Sony to Deceive His wife

The next-gen PlayStation console adapts this awesome looking design, which became the talk of the town last year. One thing which everyone seems to agree on is that the console looks like a router, among other things. One smart alec is reported to have exploited this feature to his advantage in a funny manner. Read on to find out...

Stories making the rounds in the Vietnamese Facebook group – Vietnam Gaming Setup is that a family man who wanted a PS5 but didn’t want the wife to find out had the console installed as a 5G WIFI router. The man is said to have instructed the guy from Sony who was going to install the console to dress up in the uniform of a local network service provider Viettel. They didn’t stop there, a sticker of the network’s after-sales service contact was posted on the side of the PS5 to further douse any suspicion the wife might have.

Man Purchased PS5 and Had it Installed as 5G Router By Sony to Deceive His wife

Perhaps, the wife is opposed to his gaming habits so he told her the device is a 5G WiFi router. Smart? I don’t think so. We doubt if it will take long before the wife finds out about it. Moreso, the idea of splashing pictures of the adventure on social media isn’t a good idea after all as the post has since gone viral.

This isn’t the first time we're seeing this ridiculous act. The last one we heard of backfired as the man was forced to sell the console for cheap. The Taiwanese man is reported to have lied to the wife that the newly purchased PS5 console was an air purifier. Indeed, the console can pass for an air purifier. However, the wife soon found out and had him sell it to a lucky buyer who not only got it at a cheaper price but also at a time when the PS5 is still hard to come by.

Days Gone and Other PlayStation Exclusives Heading to PC This Spring

Sony is planning to bring more of its PlayStation exclusives to PC. First up will be Days Gone coming this spring, Sony president and chief executive officer Jim Ryan told British GQ. Developer Bend Studio also confirmed the news on Twitter, adding: “Stay tuned for more details.”

Days Gone, published in the spring of 2019, was the first console game by Bend Studio since 2007’s Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow for PlayStation 2.

Days Gone received mixed reviews at launch, with most of the disappointment leveled at its repetitive gameplay loop. Still, the game has developed a following in the two years since, and is part of the 20-game PS Plus Collection offered to PlayStation 5 owners with a PlayStation Plus subscription.

For quite a while, Sony refused to put first-party PlayStation titles on PC. But, according to Ryan, that’s all going to change. “We find ourselves now in early 2021 with our development studios and the games that they make in better shape than they’ve ever been before,” Ryan said. He added that Sony’s studios have made some “wonderful” games that could stand to be exposed to a greater audience.

“The cost of making games goes up with each cycle, as the calibre of the IP has improved. Also, our ease of making it available to non-console owners has grown. So it’s a fairly straightforward decision for us to make,” Ryan said. In other words, it’s getting more and more expensive to create these games, but it’s also getting easier to create PC ports. It’s time for Sony to take advantage of this ease and start raking in revenue from PC owners.

Indian Gamers Are Strictly Fighting Against Scalpers Over PlayStation 5

Indian gamers in the market for a PlayStation 5 are actively working with a major online marketplace to have scalpers ads taken down. 

As reported by IGN India, PS5 scalpers took to popular marketplace OLX to sell the consoles. However, users reported the ads en masse, forcing the website to take them down. Scalpers then came up with another trick: they listed the consoles with a regular price tag, only to quote potential buyers a higher price once contacted. Unfortunately for them, Indian buyers weren’t having it. In fact, there’s an entire subreddit dedicated to taking scalpers and scammers down, and it seems to be working wonders.

Interestingly, IGN revealed that some Indian retailers associated with Sony were also involved in price gouging the consoles. Upon contacting Sony’s local operations, the website was told that the company has already taken action against reported retailers, and severed ties with some of them. Sony’s statement to IGN reads:

"We have taken serious note of the feedback of our patrons that have been made on our social media handles and reportedly on other platforms. We sincerely expect that the third-party retail partners operate in compliance of the legal frame work of our country and follow ethical business practices. We have ‘zero tolerance policy’ for any practices that are inconsistent to the afore-said. We have taken steps, as deemed appropriate and available with company including but not limited to discontinuing our association with such channel partners."

I have good news for UK folks, new reports say that limited inventory could continue throughout the year as high demand clashes with issues sourcing semiconductors and other parts necessary to manufacture the consoles.  

New reports are showing the incoming PS5 restocks. Both Game and ShopTo got new inventory of the console last week (which quickly sold out), and Amazon, Very, and Currys are expected to put new inventory up for sale sometime this week for the usual “mid-month” refresh.

Inventory will still be limited though, with shortages expected to continue throughout the year thanks to limited availability of semiconductors. Scalpers have also created a bottleneck for legitimate buyers trying to get their hands on a next-gen console, using bots and other unfair tools and methods to scoop up new inventory in order to resell for a profit. The scalpers say the vilification of their methods is unfair and hurtful, saying that they are just like any other middleman buying up a product from a wholesaler for resale.


Waiting to purchase one? This might be your chance to grab one.
