PlayStation 5 preorder registration opens: How to get one

Sony has opened registrations for PlayStation 5, though not everyone will get the chance to follow up with their credit card details and buy one of the first next-generation consoles. Instead, Sony is only making a limited number of PS5 available for pre-order, and so it'll be restricting them to some of its existing owners.

Watch The Lord of the Rings: Gollum first teaser trailer return us to Mordor

Way back in March 2019, Daedalic Entertainment announced that it was in the early stages of creating a game centered on Gollum from The Lord of the Rings.

Hitman 3 will be an Epic Store exclusive, but it isn’t all bad news

The original HITMAN game will be free to keep for all users of the Epic Games Store as of August 27th. That's just so long as you claim the game (with the tap of a button) before September 3, 2020. Hitman 3 will also be released very soon... as an Epic Games Store exclusive. That means it won't be available to purchase or download anywhere else*, for the foreseeable future.

FIFA 21 “no cross-play” highlights break between PS4, PS5, Xbox One X, Series X

The soccer (football) game FIFA 21 will not allow players to meet across console generations, console to console, or console to... anything else, really. EA noted this week that users will be able to carry over their progression from an older console generation to a newer generation, but no cross-play will be available for anyone, at all, ever. This might well be the first major example of the dropping off point between generations of consoles released at the tail end of 2020.

Take Two pulls back from more expensive Xbox Series X and PS5 games

Heading into the next-generation of game consoles, one of the big question marks is price - not just the prices of the consoles themselves, which Sony and Microsoft have both conveniently avoided talking about thus far, but also the prices of the games made for these machines. Several weeks ago, we got an indication that game prices might be on the rise in the next generation thanks to Take Two and NBA 2K21, which will be priced at $70 on both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

PlayStation 5 might let you quickly jump into specific parts of a game

PlayStation 5 might let you quickly jump into specific parts of a game

The contest between consoles and gaming PC is waged on many fronts and one of the things that consoles always boast of, and something that Valve's Steam Machine practically conceded, is being a dedicated gaming machine. You start it up and are immediately dumped into a gaming hub, no fussing with an operating system or dealing with notifications from this or that software.
