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.

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.

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.

PlayStation 5 to Stop Randomly Deleting Installed Games

If you're one of the PlayStation 5 owner who noticed that your new console is just randomly delete one of your games, then I've got some good news for you. Sony has released a new system software update, which aims to tackle that issue. 

Since the next-gen PlayStation 5 launched, some owners have reported that the new next-gen console has been seemingly randomly deleting their games. For folks who have the big chonky disc version of the console, that's really too much of an issue as you can just install from the disc again. The biggest concern there is just having to wait for any updates to download. Those with the all-digital version have luckily not been affected by this issue as it seems to just be affecting disc versions of games.

Fortunately, the latest system software update from Sony seems to have completely resolved that issue. More to that, the update also improves the systems performance and also addresses an issue that prevented the PS5 wireless controller from being charged while in rest mode. The update is live right now so PS5 owners should be able to get that downloaded and installed onto their consoles from today.

But hey, if for some reason you find that the automatic system software update gets stuck, then Sony recommends that you try restarting the update from scratch. If that doesn't work then you can follow this link to download the update files and put it onto a USB drive to install it right away.

Metro Exodus PS5/Xbox Series X Upgrades Coming in 2021, Metro Multiplayer and New IP in Development

Metro franchise developer 4A Games was one of the major success stories of the past decade, and it seems the studio isn’t slowing down as we head into the next generation of gaming. Today, 4A announced they are working on next-gen versions of Metro Exodus, which will be free to those who already own the game on Xbox One and PS4. Here’s what you can expect from the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 versions

We’re currently hard at work on bringing Metro Exodus to Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 next year. While we can’t share all the details just yet, you should expect major enhancements including faster frame rate, increased resolution, reduced loading times, and stunning Ray Tracing features made possible by the new hardware. The new consoles are amazing, and will allow us to deliver visual enhancements and performance only possible on state of the art PC hardware and RTX enabled cards – until now.

4A Games have already announced they’re working on the next entry in the Metro series, but today they also confirmed the game will have a multiplayer component for the first time. It seems this multiplayer mode will be developed by the able hands at Saber Interactive, while 4A will focus on the next Metro’s single-player campaign.

Meanwhile, 4A is also hard at work on an all-new IP, which they hope will “sit alongside the Metro series.” No other hints about the new IP have been provided, but 4A confirms they now have over 150 employees over two locations, so hopefully they’ll be able to handle the rigors of becoming a multi-project studio. Expect 4A to grow further as development on both their new projects continues to heat up.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint Next-Gen Enhancements Detailed by Ubisoft

Ghost Recon Breakpoint was not part of the initial list of next-gen enhanced games shared by Ubisoft. However, an official blog post reveals there are indeed enhancements available for Ghost Recon Breakpoint players on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.

NEXT-GEN CONSOLES AND PERFORMANCE

Performance Mode:

PlayStation 5 = 1080p at 60fps

Xbox Series X = 1080p at 60fps

Resolution Mode: 

PlayStation 5 = 4K at 30fps (Upscaled 4K)

Xbox Series X = 4K at 30fps

At the launch of next-gen consoles, players will instantly be able to enjoy the graphical enhancements that Ghost Recon Breakpoint has to offer, with multiple options for prioritizing either performance or resolution:

Xbox Series S will run the game in 1440P at 30FPS at all times.

EASILY TRANSITION TO NEXT-GEN AND KEEP YOUR PROGRESSION

If you currently own a copy of Ghost Recon Breakpoint on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, your profile including all purchases and inventory items will automatically be accessible on the corresponding next-gen console (PS4 with PS5 / Xbox One with Xbox Series X|S).

After the issues behind the launch last year, Ubisoft kept working on the latest Ghost Recon game to improve it.

In addition to several new content drops (including one Splinter Cell themed mission), the developers added back AI teammates in Ghost Recon Breakpoint, improved performance on PC thanks to the Vulkan API, and most recently released the 'Ghost Experience' update which significantly made stealth gameplay more meaningful as detailed below.

This update brings significant improvements to the stealth playstyle, aiming to ease stealth exploration and cover multiple game systems.

While undetected, players will now be able to deal increased damage to both drones and NPCs. This excludes heavy NPCs as they are equipped with heavy armor.

You’ll also see enemies running out of ammo and reloading – this will apply to all enemies with ASRs. This opens additional possibilities for you and your squad to launch counter attacks and adjust your strategy. We have also rebalanced the detection time and radio communication time to allow you to react to enemy tactics. Additionally, we have reduced the enemy mortar strike accuracy when you are detected.

As for drones, many changes have been applied to their detection and destruction behaviour. Changes include, but are not limited to, reduced investigation movement speed, new vertical destruction trajectory, reduced destruction sound, more pauses between attacks, and no more erratic hit animations, among other changes.



PlayStation 5 Stock to Be Available on Amazon in Europe on Launch Day

The PlayStation 5 console launches in Europe in just two days, and it will be possible to purchase it on Amazon in select countries.

The retailer recently sent out emails to customers to inform them that a PlayStation 5 stock will be available for purchase on November 19th on Amazon UK, Spain, and Italy. Consoles will be made available from 12:00 PM UTC, 1:00 PM CET.

As quantities are going to be limited, you'd better gear up to be able to purchase a PlayStation 5 console. Among the next-gen consoles, it is the one that feels like a true step into the next generation, according to Kai.

Sony's entry into the next-generation console war is the one that feels like a proper next-gen system. Rather than simply expanding on the existing libraries, Sony has established themselves as the console that's going to bring gamers into a new era. The software and UI are both early on in their implementation, but it's the combination of Sony's new Tempest AudioTech, titles that can take advantage of the SSD, and the DualSense controller that truly make this console stand out among the rest.

The PlayStation 5 console is now out in North America, Japan, and other select countries. It launches this week 'November 19th', to the rest of the world.
