EA adds shady loot boxes in its games that are often predatory. The company got into a lot of trouble for its gambling mechanics. Gambling commissions cracked down on loot boxes after how EA handled Battlefront 2. The game featured aggressive and predatory microtransactions. Riddled with Loot Boxes, Battlefront 2 sparked worldwide outrage and debate. Various Governments had to intervene to investigate the gaming industry. This is why EA is now standing in front of the UK Parliament’s Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport Committee. In a recent statement, EA talked about loot boxes and referred to them as “ethical” which is surprising keeping in mind how many commissions see this gambling. Kerry Hopkins, EA’s VP of legal and government affairs claimed that these aren’t loot boxes. According to EA’s new definition, these are “surprise mechanics.” It seems like a tactic to counter the negativity surrounding the term “loot boxes.”The new…

Mark Cerny has confirmed that PS5 will use an SSD but he also mentioned that it is not just some regular SSD. It is a special SSD that is not available to PC users as of right now. AMD just announced the X570 motherboards that support PCIe 4.0 SSDs and it is possible that the PS5 uses the same storage solution. We know that both the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett are powered by AMD hardware. Both use AMD Zen 2 CPUs and AMD Navi graphics. Adding the PCIe 4.0 interface to the PS5 or Xbox Scarlett would not be hard keeping in mind that the new AMD Ryzen 3000 series CPUs already support it. PS5 And Xbox Scarlett Feature A Custom PCIe 4.0 SSD These CPUs and motherboards are not available right now so Mark Cerny’s statement would still be valid. This hardware has been announced recently and consumers have…

Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games party due to Keanu Reeves. But the public only got to see a CGO trailer at E3 2019. CD Project Red Showed Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay demo at E3 2019 behind closed doors. Many details leaked later on and some are extremely surprising. Reports have revealed that the Cyberpunk 2077 demo PC used an Nvidia Titan RTX and an Intel 8700K. I am sure that CDPR wanted the high-end hardware in order to power the demo but the thing that worries me is that even with all that hardware, the demo was reportedly running at 30 FPS. The FPS dropped from time to time. You can check out the complete leaked Cyberpunk 2077 specs of the $4200 demo PC are: Cyberpunk 2077 Specs – Gameplay Demo PC CPU: Intel i7-8700K (clocked @3.70GHz) Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-I GAMING RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V,…

Xbox Scarlett was one of the major highlights of the Microsoft conference at E3 2019. We know that the console features high-end hardware and can support games up to 8K at 120 FPS. With that in mind, fans are concerned about the potentially high price of the Xbox Scarlett. Xbox Lockhart was supposed to be the more mainstream console.

He mentioned that the price point of the Xbox Scarlett will be “reasonable.” The following is what he had to say in this regard to Xbox Scarlett price: We understand what reasonable price points are for a console and kind of what customers expect about that.

Anthem has had its fair share of issues ever since it first released. Sony and many other companies have been reluctant to refund players that bought the game. But it seems there is hope for disgruntled fans after all, at least in AUS. An Australian gamer revealed that players can refund Anthem thanks to Australian consumer protections. On the basis of being faulty and defective. This includes re-disconnects, load times, errors, auto shutdown/database rebuild problem to name a few. Not to mention that the trailers that EA showed at E3 2017 and 2018 are fakes and are unlike the actual game at launch. The mentioned gamer bought Anthem at launch and just a few days ago asked Sony for a refund. Not to my surprise, the refund request got denied. He then checked whether it was eligible for a refund by Australian consumer protection law. It turns out that he…

Hidden Walls or Illusory Walls have always been a staple of FromSoftware games (Dark Souls) and now have returned in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Hidden Walls are essentially secret pathways that often connect two or more locations and contain treasures. However, in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, these Hidden Walls work a little differently as opposed to Dark Souls games. Where in Dark Souls, you had to hit an Illusory Wall to open up a passage, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice requires you to interact with a Hidden Wall in order to open it up. Doing so will see Wolf (Sekiro) hug the wall and rotate to the other side. A white silhouette of a man marks the presence of these Shinobi Doors (as Sekiro calls them) in the game. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Hidden Walls You can expect to find Prayer Beads (used to increase your Vitality and Posture) behind Shinobi…
