Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War confuses even the PS5

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War confuses even the PS5

The launch of the PlayStation 5 naturally marked the launch of new titles, some of which also catered to the PS4 to maintain world peace. Cross-gen compatibility, while nice, does have some of its problems, especially when different versions of the same game exist for the different console generations. There is, for example, the somewhat confusing situation with Marvel's Spider-Man but the situation with Treyarch's and Raven's latest Call of Duty: Black Ops installment is both amusing and irritating as it seems to confuse the PS5 more than just players.

Apple TV PlayStation app now available ahead of PS5 launch

It's a big week for gaming, particularly for those on the console side of the fence. The Xbox Series X just launched and the PlayStation 5 will soon be shipping to gamers, at least in some countries. When they do, however, new owners will immediately be able to get access to Apple's video app thanks to the promised Apple TV app that is now available from the PlayStation Store. Even better, those with a PS4 won't even have to wait since they can grab the app now as well.

PS5 games to be region-free, can’t be played on external storage

PS5 games to be region-free, can’t be played on external storage

With some just counting down the hours, Sony published a long FAQ that will hopefully address many of the things gamers have been wondering about the PlayStation 5. It's a rather mixed bag of information, some bringing joy to PlayStation fans while others are left scratching their heads. One of the best parts is that, following Nintendo's lead with the Switch, PS5 games won't be restricted by region. But while gamers will now have access to more titles, they are now also extremely limited by how much they can install on the towering console.

Spider-Man on PS4 will let you export saves to PS5 remaster

Spider-Man on PS4 will let you export saves to PS5 remaster

It's really no secret and, to some extent, understandable that game developers and publishers want to sell as many copies of a game as they could. That goes double if a company has its hands inside both the game as well as the console the game would run on. This situation is what has pretty much made Spider-Man's PS4 and PS5 titles a bit of a mess. Sony seems to finally be willing to through gamers a bone by letting them at least transfer their PS4 Spider-Man saved game to the remastered version on the PS5.

Warframe on PS5 promises more than just graphics updates

Warframe on PS5 promises more than just graphics updates

Although the freemium business model is pretty much de facto in the gaming industry, for better or worse, it was still a radical and revolutionary concept when Warframe launched back in 2013. It was so uncertain whether the game would be able to survive, let alone make a profit, that porting to the PlayStation 4 was considered by developers Digital Extremes to be a leap of faith. Seven years later, the game is now on the cusp of launching on the next iteration of Sony's console and its evolution is promised to go beyond just visual improvements.

PS5 DualSense Controller iFixit teardown sends mixed messages

PS5 DualSense Controller iFixit teardown sends mixed messages

Some might take for granted how sophisticated a game controller can be, especially when compared to a more complicated console it's paired with. Given how much more wear and tear it faces, however, it's even more crucial for these essential gaming accessories to be more modular and repairable. The DualSense controllers for the PlayStation 5 are definitely not your run of the mill gamepad and iFixit's teardown proves just how more complicated it has become in some ways while still being repairable in others.

NBA 2K21 The City gives the game an MMORPG spin

NBA 2K21 The City gives the game an MMORPG spin

The next-gen consoles launching in just a few days' time offer new hardware that is just begging to be overused and abused. Most of the time, developers flaunt richer graphics and audio that these technologies enable but they also open games up to more content as well. Case in point is NBA 2K21's new The City mode, which pretty much builds a virtual city around basketball. Beyond matches between players, however, the next-gen City also gives players a lot more to do even when they're not playing basketball.

PS5 custom faceplate maker cancels orders after Sony legal threats

PS5 custom faceplate maker cancels orders after Sony legal threats

The PlayStation 5's unconventional design has proven to be quite divisive. While it is quite the sight to behold, sometimes being likened to a trophy, its enormous size and default vertical orientation may have turned off a few PlayStation fans. And, as always, the console will come only in one default color that opens the door for a third-party customization market. That, however, might not be possible if Sony sets its legal hounds on such attempts as it did with a company that tried to make customized faceplates for the upcoming PS5.

PlayStation 5 accessibility features promise to embrace all gamers

PlayStation 5 accessibility features promise to embrace all gamers

A lot of products, services, and content are claimed to be designed for all but, most of the time, that "all" refers to physically-abled people. From time to time, we get reminders that even those with disabilities want and deserve to get the same experiences and that manufacturers and creators have to make the effort to be inclusive. With the PlayStation 5's launch just around the corner, Sony is sending out a message that the next-gen console is truly designed for all thanks to some accessibility features.

New Ubisoft games on next-gen consoles will enjoy these perks

In just a few weeks, the gaming world will be welcoming the first new consoles from Microsoft and Sony to come in a long, long time. And with new consoles naturally come launch titles, some of which aren't exclusive to these new consoles. While you may be able to buy copies of new games for the current-gen Xbox One and PS4, you will not be able to enjoy the games at their best. At least that is what Ubisoft is implying by laying out what features of its new games you'll be able to enjoy only on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
