“Looks like Sony may be announcing another studio acquisition soon – if a PlayStation Japan tweet is accurate. The PlayStation Japan Twitter tweeted “Welcome to the family” regarding Sony’s acquisition of Housemarque. The image attached to the now-deleted tweet showed Bluepoint Game’s logo instead of Housemarque (thanks, Gematsu). This has lead many to believe Sony has also acquired Dark Souls remake developer Bluepoint.
“A Plague Tale for PS5 launches via PlayStation Plus. July games include COD BLOPS 4, WWE Battlegrounds. This new version of the game, available for PS5 via Plus on 6th July, adds 4K visuals, 60FPS and faster loading. (It will also release for Xbox Series X as a free update on that date, as well as a new cloud-based version for Nintendo Switch). Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the one with the beardy chap with the tattooed head on the cover, is also part of the PlayStation Plus line-up in July. Multiplayer, zombies and the battle royale mode Blackout (remember that?) are included. Finally, there’s the weird chibi wrestling game WWE 2K Battlegrounds, where fighters use special abilities and powerups. All three games are available from 6th July to 2nd August.”
“Sony Has Shifted 9 Million PlayStation 5 Consoles Since Launch, But You Still Can’t Get One. According to a recent report, the PlayStation 5 has sold an estimated nine million units since its bombastic launch in late 2020. That’s an astonishing shift for an eight month stint. For comparison, the PlayStation 5 is closing in on the lifetime sales of the Sega Dreamcast and Sega Saturn, which pushed 9.13 million and 9.26 million units respectively. VGChartz claims that, between May 30 and June 5, there were almost 200,000 sales of the PlayStation 5 across the globe. As a result, the PlayStation 5 has accrued over nine million sales since November 2020. Right now, I hear Sony ordering a balloon arch and popping the champagne bottles. Honestly, the slowly increasing volume of impressive first-party titles for the console may have been a contributor to its success.
“PlayStation Website Hints at Gran Turismo 7 PS5 Beta Test. Gran Turismo 7 was recently pushed back to 2022 (and also announced for PlayStation 4), but there’s still every reason to be excited about the sim racer. The first entry in the long-running series to hit PS5, this will surely be a feast for the eyes when it eventually crosses the line. In the meantime, though, there seems to be a possibility we’ll get to play it in the near future. Discovered by GTPlanet is official word of a PS5 beta test for the upcoming game. Getting there is slightly convoluted, but we’ll explain as best we can. If you visit this page on the official PlayStation website, you’ll find yourself at the Experience PlayStation portal. Assuming you’re logged into your PSN account, click Start Quest, then Related Campaigns, then Italia Quest. Scroll down to find Gran Turismo Quest, click it, and it’ll instruct you to watch 10 seconds of the “LIVE demo”. If you then watch 10 seconds of the GT 7 announcement trailer, you’ll be given a placeholder redemption code for a beta test.”
“Walmart PS5 Restock Shocks Buyers With Free Upgrade. A recent PlayStation 5 restock at Walmart has shocked purchasers with (perhaps the first time ever) nothing but good news. Although many PS5 purchasing opportunities at a number of retail storefronts seem to only end in heartbreak, Walmart has decided to buck that trend entirely and has upgraded those who just recently bought the next-gen console to a higher-end version for no additional cost. Earlier today, Walmart began sending out emails to customers that had recently gotten their hands on a PS5 in a recent restock from the storefront that took place this past week. These emails specifically went out to those who had purchased the $400 version of the console, which is digital-only and comes with no disc drive. Essentially, Walmart explained that it had sold more versions of the PS5 Digital Edition in this recent than it had on hand. To make up for it, however, the company informed some buyers that it would be sending them the Standard Edition of the PS5 instead.
