Your PS4 controller won't work with PS5 games - console
(hx) 09:33 AM CEST - Aug,04 2020 - Post a comment
You won't be able to use your PS4 controller to play PS5 games when Sony's next-gen console arrives this holiday season, the company revealed in a blog post Monday. The DualShock 4 will work if you're playing PS4 titles on the backward-compatible console, but only its new DualSense controller will work on games made for PS5. It isn't a huge surprise -- Sony has traditionally added a feature on its new consoles' controllers that render its old ones unusable with new games. However, its competitor Microsoft has said Xbox One controllers will work on the upcoming Xbox Series X, and the new controller will be compatible with its older console too. You'll get one DualSense when you buy a PS5, but Sony hasn't said how much an extra pad will set you back (it hasn't revealed the price of the console itself).The DualShock 4 costs $60. The PS Camera, which acts as the motion sensor for the PlayStation VR headset, will work on PS5, but you'll need an adapter that will apparently be available for free -- Sony promised more details on how to get the adapter later. PS Move Motion Controllers and the Aim Controller can also be used to play PS VR games on the new console. Officially licensed specialty peripherals, like racing wheels, arcade sticks and flight sticks, will work with PS5 games and supported PS4 games. These are often wildly expensive, so it's good that you'll be able to wring some extra value out of them by using them on a new generation of games.

The Ultimate PS4 Pro: 8TB SSD Upgrade - console
(hx) 10:28 PM CEST - Aug,03 2020 - Post a comment
Enter the Samsung QVO 870 8TB SSD - a pricy solid state drive that far exceeds the cost of PS4 Pro, but gives it its most optimal chance of solving issues in loading and streaming. Swapped for the standard drive, can this SSD deliver a satisfying upgrade? And how about being used externally via USB?

Summary, though the video is definitely worth a watch:
- Loading times are improved (Internal SSD best results, external SSD lagging slightly behind). This is the biggest advantage.
- Texture loading/pop-in notably better with SSD compared to stock HDD
- Asset loading/pop-in better with SSD, in some cases geometry is drawn faster/ at a larger distance, though in most cases geometry/npc loading distance seems to be baked in.
- Menu navigation, small improvement with internal SSD. Menu navigation seems to be more tied to internet speed.

Analogue Pocket Pre-Orders Sold Out - console
(hx) 06:56 PM CEST - Aug,03 2020 - Post a comment
In a time where many have been waiting to pre-order upcoming consoles like the Xbox Series X and PS5 for months now, a more under the radar platform went up for pre-order just this morning. However, based on how quickly this item sold out, perhaps it wasn’t so under the radar after all. Analogue’s new all-in-one Pocket handheld device, which lets users play Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and a variety of other games from platform of the past, went up for sale this morning and almost instantaneously sold out. The Pocket, which is set to begin shipping out to those that were lucky enough to snag one in May 2021, began taking sales at 11:00am EDT/8:00am PDT. Fifteen minutes after going live, Analogue announced that it had already sold out of its initial stock.
The highly-coveted Pocket, as mentioned, has the ability to play a variety of Game Boy games from the past, but also boasts a screen that has ten times the resolution of the original devices from back in the day. While nostalgia alone may have drove pre-order sales for many, Analogue has released a variety of other supporting products for the Pocket such as a dock, a link cable, and a protective case to make the console that much more fleshed out. As for those that missed out, Analogue seems hopeful that it will have more Pocket handhelds going up for pre-order in the future, but given the current state of the world when it comes to manufacturing, it couldn’t commit to anything specific. “We will be producing more and do our best to meet demand during this unfortunate global state of affairs,” Analogue said upon announcing that the initial wave of Pocket platforms had sold out.

Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Dry Twice Announced - briefly
(hx) 06:01 PM CEST - Aug,03 2020 - Post a comment / read (1)
Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer CrazyBunch Studios have announced point-and-click adventure game sequel Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Dry Twice for PC and Mac. It will launch via Steam and GOG on October 15 for $34.99.


Hey Ladies, it’s time to get wet again! I am not done yet and still dreaming of you in Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Dry Twice. I left New Lost Wages, stranded in Cancum, and had prepared to marry my only true love, Faith. But, unforeseen events interrupted us and we’ve become separated again! She is somewhere in the famous, sunny and huge Kalau’a archipelago and I have to find her. Help me—if I don’t find her soon, I think I may burst!

No obstacle will keep me away from my beloved, my Faith, not even the wild and untamed islands of Kalau’a. Those lovely island ladies can only distract me for so long as my heart’s compass only points in one direction—Faith! Care to set sail with me as a true pirate and become a real gold digger? Join my crew on this glorious quest—you may just end up soaked to the bone!

Key Features

  • Explore the Kalaua’ archipelago with all its mysterious and beautiful islands – featuring over 50 handdrawn locations.
  • Meet over 40 new and old friends from Wet Dreams Don’t Dry and chat up some fresh new feminine friends.
  • Help Larry solve difficult and exciting (and maybe a little erotic) new riddles and complete quests, providing him with a truly happy ending.

Cyberpunk 2077 beta email phishing scam - briefly
(hx) 09:11 AM CEST - Aug,02 2020 - Post a comment
CD Projekt RED have warned fans about a rather extensive email phishing scam being employed in an attempt to catch gamers interested in playing Cyberpunk 2077, and stealing their personal details. The scam asks would-be players to sign up for a gameplay beta of Cyberpunk, prompting the Polish devs to address the situation via the game's official Twitter account. CD Projekt have stated in the past that no beta for the game will be made available before its release, but the scammers clearly didn't get that memo. As reported by Eurogamer, this isn't the first time this has happened, either. A Reddit thread posted over a year ago warns of a similar email advertising beta codes to players.

CD Projekt RED has quicky issued a statement that all future content will be announced through CD Projekt Red’s official channels, and emails will come from this ‘’ address. Just in case you got this phishing email in your Inbox, please do not open it. Mark the email as spam, and consider warning your friends and family of this scam as well, so that they don’t fall for it either.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be debuting November 19th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game confirmed to work on PS5 and Xbox Series X on the consoles' release days as a free upgrade.

Halo Infinite multiplayer will be free-to-play and support 120 frames per second on Xbox Series X, publisher Microsoft and developer 343 Industries confirmed.
343 Industries and Microsoft will reveal more details about the multiplayer mode of Halo: Infinite at a later date.

Halo: Infinite is coming to the PC in Holiday 2020, and will be available on both Windows Store and Steam!
Bright Memory: Infinite ChinaJoy 2020 trailer - movie
(hx) 12:43 PM CEST - Jul,31 2020 - Post a comment
Publisher Playism and developer FYQD-Studio have released the ChinaJoy 2020 trailer for high-speed first-person combat game Bright Memory: Infinite.
Bright Memory: Infinite is an all-new lightning-fast fusion of the FPS and action genres, created by FYQD-Studio. Combine a wide variety of skills and abilities to unleash dazzling combo attacks.

Bright Memory: Infinite is set in a sprawling, futuristic metropolis in the year 2036. A strange phenomenon for which scientists can find no explanation has occurred in the skies around the world. The Supernatural Science Research Organization (SRO) has sent agents out to various regions to investigate this phenomenon. It is soon discovered that these strange occurrences are connected to an archaic mystery – an as-of-yet unknown history of two worlds, about to come to light…

About Bright Memory: Episode 1

During the initial stages, since it was pretty difficult to estimate the number of copies that would sell, I decided to create the kind of game that could start out as a demo and later use crowdfunding support to develop further. I’ve finally managed to amass enough time and funding, so the action and general gameplay will remain as-is but the story and stages are all being reworked.

From here on out, I will no longer be developing Bright Memory: Episode 1 any further, but I plan on making regular “experimental” additions of various new features, etc., which players will be able to try out. Once development of Bright Memory: Infinite is complete, it will be distributed as a separate game, but those who have already purchased Bright Memory: Episode 1 will receive a special “100% off” discount coupon for Bright Memory: Infinite prior to its release.

Bright Memory: Infinite is in development for Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC

Intel Overhauls its Corporate Identity - tech
(hx) 09:30 PM CEST - Jul,30 2020 - Post a comment / read (1)
EVO is likely to become a prominent client-segment processor brand by Intel as it wades into the post-Core product generation. Intel just registered a large tranche of trademarks and logos with the USPTO. It begins with a re-design of Intel's corporate identity from the ground-up, including the company's main logo. A clean new typeface replaces the one Intel has been using since the original Core i7 from a decade ago. The brands are placed with simple geometric backgrounds with fewer color gradients. The brand extension (i3/i5/i7/i9) is located at the bottom-right corner. The distinction between two logos, "EVO Powered by Core" and just Core i3, caught our eye. We speculate that EVO could refer to a new category of Hybrid processors (chips with more than one kind of CPU core), and could debut with "Alder Lake." The non-EVO chips could have only one kind of CPU core, and given the timing of this trademark application (July 2020), we expect it to debut only with the processor that succeeds "Tiger Lake," as notebooks based on the new chips may already be under mass-production. In any case, it's only a matter of the notebook ODM (eg: Quanta, Compal, Foxconn, etc.,) placing a sticker on the product or its packaging. It's also interesting to note the "powered by Core" subtext in the EVO branding. Intel could be using this to transition between the two brands.
Intel has $82 Billion in shareholder equity, of which $8 Billion is in cold, hard cash. $44 Billion in "current assets" and only ~$22 Billion in liabilities. Intel today could spend $20 Billion on one moonshot project and still have money left over to continue their operations. In the short term, it is clear that Intel is screwing up their process. But a giant pile of $20 Billion+ can turn things around, as long as the board + executives do the right thing with it. Based on other companies (IBM, Sears, etc. etc.) that have entered long periods of decline... Intel could easily remain giant for a decade to come, coasting entirely on its cash pile alone. And who knows? Maybe Intel really can turn things around and return to dominance.

In other news, Intel is apparently seeking external assistance and it seems like a deal has already been struck with TSMC which is now believed to be the designated foundry that can assist with Intel's 7 nm chip production in 2021. Intel indicated that its own 7 nm production will end up delayed by at least 6 months due to design defects, plus we know that AMD is ready to launch 5 nm CPUs by next year, so now that Intel can tap external foundries, the delay may never occur. However, Intel’s manufacturing nodes are not exactly compatible with TSMC’s nodes. The upcoming 7 nm node from Intel is comparable to TSMC’s 5 nm node as far as transistor densities and yields are concerned, which means Intel actually needs to validate and supply necessary design changes so that TSMC can repurpose its 5 nm and 3 nm EUV nodes. Another DigiTimes source reports that TSMC could also help Intel with the 10 nm production for upcoming CPUs and GPUs. The node discrepancies are still there, so the 10 nm Intel process is actually similar to TSMC’s 6 nm process. The two companies will need to work together in order to redesign the photomasks for select 10 nm Intel CPUs and GPUs, ensuring the compatibility with TSMC’s nodes.

People Can Fly has announced the development of a new original AAA title - "a highly ambitious, groundbreaking action adventure title" - planned for release on "next-generation consoles, streaming platforms, and PC." The new project is led by People Can Fly’s New York studio, which plans to hire “dozens of new staff” over the next year. Led by studio head David Grijns and creative director Roland Lesterlin, People Can Fly New York will work in cooperation with its sister studios in Warsaw, Rzeszow, and Newcastle on the new title. People Can Fly will grow its New York studio over the next 12 to 18 months, as well as open a startup studio in Montreal to match the scale of the project.

“There is electricity in the air at People Can Fly,” said People Can Fly CEO Sebastian Wojciechowski in a press release. “Last year we announced the opening of our New York studio and revealed Outriders for the first time. Today we have surpassed 250 staff and are excited to announce the next chapter in the development of our company. Our intention from the beginning has been to expand People Can Fly into a multi-project studio and continue to build a global presence for our brand. We are marking this unique moment with the presentation of PCF’s refreshed visual identity. With the launch of the next-generation consoles later this year, we are incredibly excited about the future of People Can Fly and the games industry as a whole.” People Can Fly New York creative director Roland Lesterlin added, “It’s rare to ever get the chance to work on an original AAA game in today’s world, never mind being part of the origination process. We’re looking for brilliant and curious people to help us shape the vision of this incredible new world we’re building.”
