I figured they would go for that. Surprised they would greenlit such a 'core' experience for Star Wars. Impressed.

EA Play to be included for free with Xbox Games Pass Ultimate starting on launch day for the new consoles. Nice.

* According to a report from Kotaku, the PS5 is going to be the first Playstation console from Sony where Circle for "confirm" and X for "cancel" will be the default option for all regions instead of before where the button options were swapped around for Japan. Predictably, this has led to negative online backlash by Japanese players over Sony's decision.

* For those interested in Godfall for the PS5, the game's single player mode won't be playable offline since the game requires a constant internet connection.

* Based on a recent listing on the Writer's Guild of America West website, Netflix recently ordered a third season to be made for their The Witcher television series and currently have tentative plans for a late 2020 to 2021 release on the service.

Not all that interested in Godfall. With all the gameplay and stuff I've seen, it ain't all that appealing.

Thinking about going the other way and grabbing Outriders.

* Constantin Film studio announced that they are currently developing a new Resident Evil film that will not be associated with the previous film series and instead act as a hard cinematic reboot and be based on the first two RE games.

Besides Epic Games, Microsoft also has recently gotten into a big dispute with Apple regarding their strict rules for the App Store.

Microsoft's issues revolve around them wanting to expand their Xbox Game Pass to iOS devices but are not fond of Apple demanding that in order for the service to be allowed, every game included has to each pass their own separate review by Apple. That would make it a lot more of a hassle to run the service on the platform than elsewhere. Microsoft wants the whole service to be treated as a single app and not have the games be treated as individually separate apps within an app.

Similar to Epic Games, Microsoft will also be circumventing Apple's rules in order to launch the service on the platform next year but as a browser-based software for their workaround solution.

Amazon's Luna and Google's Stadia are in the exact same situation.

"Nah, that's not how this is going down," Xbox says (probably). According to a report from Bloomberg, Xbox head Phil Spencer called a meeting with all employees to declare that Xbox game streaming will be on iOS devices in 2021. So, what changed? Microsoft found a workaround.

Next year, Xbox Game Pass will be offered on iPhones and iPads via a "direct browser-based solution." Because Xbox Game Pass won't be an app, it won't be subject to the usual App Store policies. Now Microsoft's challenge is building out a browser version that's functional in ways that offer a smooth app-like experience. Nevertheless, Spencer is quoted as saying "We absolutely will end up on iOS with Game Pass."

Once it has full release with the rebooted Ultimate Game Pass Microsoft will have bypassed necessity for a handheld *and* casually dunk on companies trying their damndest to get it to work. It's gonna be a slaughter house, particularly if they can get it working thru a browser (which shouldn't be an issue technically speaking).

Presumably, GTA V will come out next year, and you can buy it for the 3rd time (or more)

I’m not surprised rockstar is charging for the upgrade since up until Valorent’s weapon skins, shark cards were the biggest ripoff in all of gaming. I’d hope it’s at least a budget price.

Blizzard Entertainment is currently facing the possibility of dealing with a workers strike protest due to Activision-Blizzard's recent actions involving their French based office.

Three unions representing Blizzard employees have recently called for a strike to take place if the company does not cease their plans to shut down the office. Their main issue is the company has not been honest regarding their actual plans for the office and those who will be affected. Also issues regarding poor work conditions at the office.

As we reported last week, Activision-Blizzard is currently in the process of shuttering the French studio following a long and drawn-out dispute over severance, payable to some 130 employees who were hit with redundancy back in 2019. Originally, Blizzard had planned to relocate half of the Versailles team to its London offices, but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has produced numerous setbacks, and seemingly the French studio will now close outright.

Speaking in an official statement, unions CGT, SPECIS-UNSA and CFE-CGC described the action of sending 285 employees to a COVID-hit job market was "inconceivable," while lambasting the studios' decision to repeatedly deny its plans to close the studios' doors.

"This comes as a shock for employees who were not expecting that announcement," said union spokespeople in the statement. "In 15 years, many of us left their homes from across Europe and beyond to join the company, people truly invested their whole lives into Blizzard success [...] Management has willingly deteriorated work conditions to a point where psycho-social risks raised dangerously, forcing work inspection to intervene and the CSE to launch a 'droit d'alerte'."

The union requests that Activision-Blizzard cease its plans to close the Versailles office, increase the production of activity in its European region, and invest in the effective prevention of further psycho-social risks. On social media, Blizzard fans have been trending the #KeepVersaillesOpen hashtag in an effort to show support to the affected parties.

For those that purchase Playstaion games via mobile devices or the PS Store website, Sony announced they are dropping the ability to purchase PSP, PS Vita, and PS3 games from those platforms during the next 2 weeks.

The games, their DLC packs, and other related stuff like apps, themes, and avatars will still be available to purchase but only via those console and handhelds storefronts.

That restricted access also goes for apps, themes, and avatars – and the wishlist feature is being "discontinued" too.

What's the deal? Sony is cleaning house for the fast-approaching PlayStation 5.

The company sent out an email to PlayStation users yesterday with details about these (previously rumored) PlayStation Store changes and when they will take effect. On desktop, the switchover will happen sometime next week. On mobile devices, the removal is happening on October 28, 2020.

Under the new setup, if you want to buy a PlayStation 3, PSP, or PS Vita game, you'll need to do so on your original system using its less-than-ideal storefront. (One of the big reasons why this change is such an annoyance.) If you want to get PS4 apps, themes, or avatars, you'll need to use your PS4.

meh. I maybe would have left the vita accessible for the time being but ps3 and psp have been retired long enough to let it go. If you are buying games for those systems still then you clearly own them and its not much of an issue to log in and d/l games from them tbh. People making a much bigger deal out of this than needs to be made.

For those that shop at Gamestop stores during the annual Black Friday sales, the company announced they won't be open on that day for this year.

To make up for it, the company also announced they will be holding more pre-Black Friday sales events at their stores.

Good for them.

Nice to know they're being smart and safe.

The virus isn't going to respect 'pre-black friday' events either.

Probably just means a few more weekly sales or notable discounts and not actual mini-Black Friday events.

Them shutting down Black Friday at their stores is way more due to them very likely weren't going to get that many people showing up anyways. Easier on their end to just pocket the money they would have spent on extra wages for their employees for lower in-store sales this year.

Now if they don't get a big boost from online sales for Black Friday, then that's very troublesome for their future considering their serious financial problems.

Major retailers are in fact having mini blck friday events throughout the month of November. Seems like a really dumb idea, given the spike in cases we're seeing.

Dunno if it's a 'spike'. Seems like the usual numbers trumped up whenever we try to reopen. Fla is in phase 3, which is pretty much open with some indoor restrictions, and we're not a hotzone like we were months ago.

* Ubisoft recently revealed a new service from them called Ubisoft Connect which is pretty much just UPlay but with the added feature of support for cross-platform saves for all of their games going forward.

Ghost of Tsushima Raid goes live next Friday.

Unfortunately, Sucker Punch is taking page out of the Destiny playbook and will not support matchmaking. So, you gotta put a team together before hand.

If it's anything like Destiny's raids, then it's for good reason.

Feel like they should make a "lesser" version, similar to the sherpa runs or whatever they were called. Sucks not being able to do new content
