Recently, it was rumored that the source code for Xbox Series X graphics IP had been stolen from AMD and that the thieves were asking for 100 million USD as random. That has been confirmed by AMD and the company has released an official statement regarding the matter. As the Xbox Series X is an unreleased product and the hardware inside has yet to be released for the PC market, you can understand why this is a major security breach and a concern for not only AMD and Microsoft but for Sony as well. The PS5 is also being developed in partnership with AMD. So if the graphics IP for Xbox Series X is out there then what is stopping people from getting their hands on the PS5 information as well? The following is the official statement from AMD regarding the theft of the Xbox Series X graphics IP: At…

The release of the iPhone 12 Pro might have been delayed due to the Coronavirus but pictures of the upcoming device have been spotted. It seems that the iPhone 12 Pro is not going to have a notch. iPhone 12 Pro Will Not Have A Notch From we can see, the 12 Pro is not going to have a notch on the top and the bezels are going to be very slim indeed. It is possible that the Face ID technology has been miniaturized and fits into the top portion of the screen. There is no doubt that this is what fans have been waiting for and it is only a matter of time before Apple releases the iPhone 12 Pro. Whether that is going to be this year is anyone’s guess. How can there be a picture of the real thing so soon you ask? This leak is allegedly…

There isn’t much known about GTA 6 and its cast but it seems something may have finally slipped out. According to the resume of Mexican actor Jorge Consejo, he did CGI for Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 6.  He did the CGI back in 2018. When asked about his involvement in GTA 6 back in 2019 when the rumors first appeared,  Consejo said he can confirm nor deny his involvement with the project. He played “The Mexican” in Grand Theft Auto 6, according to his resume. Consejo has been a part of many Mexican projects including Pasión prohibida,  Más sabe el diablo, Sacrificio de mujer, and Código Postal. He did film, theater, and Television for years. Over the years multiple leaks and rumors have come up regarding the next Grand Theft Auto and rarely, we find something this interesting. However, until he or Rockstar Games actually confirm something, we can…

COVID-19 has cancelled all the events where we could have heard more about the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti but latest reports claim that the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti will release before the end of August 2020. That means that the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti could be announced at the Cologne Game Show which is scheduled to take place from August 25 to August 29. This is not surprising keeping in mind that the RTX 20 series was announced at the same show in 2018. We can speculate that the Tesla and Quadro graphics cards are going to release before the consumer graphics cards. Even with that being the case, you can expect to get custom graphics cards from AIB partners by the end of September. There are other events other than the Cologne Game Show in August as well. GDC is scheduled for August 4th and Hot Chips 2020 is…

Samsung has started making DDR5 memory which is odd, keeping in mind that modern-day PC hardware does not use this standard of memory. You would think that if Samsung has started making DDR5 memory then Intel and AMD might start making CPUs that support this new standard. Turns out, that is not the case. AMD 5nm Zen 4 CPUs are not going to support DDR5 memory. AMD 5nm Zen 4 CPUs Will Not Support DDR5 Memory Upcoming AMD 5nm CPUs, codenamed Genda are not going to support DDR5 memory. These CPUs are supposed to release before 2022. Before that, we are going to get the 7nm Milan CPUs. The following is the official roadmap from AMD. In a press release, ATP electronics has confirmed that AMD and Intel CPUs are still going to use DDR4 memory in the future. DDR4 is the mainstream standard right now and it is possible…

What is Avalanche Studios working on?  It could be anything from Just Cause to the reported and leaked Harry Potter RPG. Whatever it’s, it’s from a well-known AAA license. While the studio has been quiet regarding its upcoming ventures, a recent job listing mentioned some minor noteworthy details. At this time Avalanche seems to be working on multiple projects. The projects are from well-known AAA licenses and original IPs. When they say “well-known  AAA licenses” it is safe to say it means Harry Potter and Just Cause. Meanwhile, we can’t know what original IPs are under development at the studio. Some of the projects are seemingly close to being announced. The studio is looking for QA Engineer which indicates that some games are pretty far into development at this point. Avalanche Studios is a leading independent, privately held studio with offices in Stockholm and New York. The studio is the…

Over the past few days, we have heard rumors of a March 25th announcement from Rockstar Games to reveal GTA VI. It held very little weight because reports and rumors like these are in abundance online and so far, not one has proven to be accurate. However, an interesting development took place earlier which gives some weight to the March 25th announcement rumor. The Grand Theft Auto 6 domain got updated on March 23 and it no longer redirects to the Rockstar Games website. Usually, this happens when a website is ready to launch, for those who don’t know, same happened before the reveal of GTA 5. If you visit gtav.com, gtavii.com, and gtaviii.com it takes you to the official Rockstar Games. Until now, gtavi.com did the same.  This is a very interesting development and one can only hope that it does bring us some sort of news regarding Rockstar…

Darksiders is a cult classic and the first 3 games feature a separate horseman of the apocalypse but that was not always intended. Comic-book-artist-turned-game director Joe Madureira talked about the development of the first Darksiders game and mentioned that he wanted to make a 4 player co-op game from the start. Being a Darksiders fan myself, I know how much the fans want a fourth game for Strife and then a 4 player co-op game in which players can pick from the different horsemen. So why did that never happen? Here is what Madureira had to say regarding the matter. Not at all. The original concept for the first game was four-player co-op – which was completely insane, of course. It was hard enough just making a single character fun. I had them all visualised already though, and Death was kind of staring us in the face, just begging for…

One of the things that made the original Resident Evil 3 great was live selection which gave players multiple endings. This means that players could play the game over and over against. It seems that Resident Evil 3 remake will not have Live Selection or multiple endings. Capcom producer Peter Fabiano talked about live selection and here is what he had to say regarding the matter: One of the reasons they included Live Selection in the original is that the schedule was quite tight, there was a lot of limitations in what they could do and they wanted to add replay value. And one of the things they came up with was adding Live Selection, but this time round we’re telling one consistent story. So Resident Evil 3 is not going to feature Live selection or multiple endings and will be more linear. Peter Fabiano also talked about Nemesis and…

The Resident Evil 3 is out now and you can download it and check it out for yourself. Meanwhile, we have more information regarding the big baddie in Resident Evil 3, Nemesis. Capcom producer Peter Fabiano talked about the baddie and here we are going to go over what he had to say. Fabiano mentioned that Nemesis Tyrant was similar to Nemesis in the previous game so they had to take things up a notch. The following is what he had to say regarding the matter: The director looked at what they had done with the Tyrant in RE2 and was like, ‘Wait a minute! They’ve Nemesis-ified him!’ So it was like taking it that one step further – we needed to make Nemesis ferocious and a real threat, and I think you’ll feel that when you play the game. Furthermore, Fabiano talked about how Nemesis is going to be…
