Pikachu alone has been turned into a plush so many times that I've lost count. The world famous Electric-type has another one for its collection this week as Pikachu has been included in Pokemon's new Sweet Support plush range, and the Pichu it has been paired with will melt even the iciest of hearts.

Google, Microsoft Will Dominate AI as Computing Costs Surge

Sam Altman's goal of raising about $7 trillion to make artificial-intelligence chips tells a story beyond his borderline-insane ambitions. First, the infrastructure needed to build AI has become exorbitantly expensive. Second, most of that value is still — still! — held by a handful of large technology companies — and the oligopoly is only going to get worse.

PlayStation Decade-Low Profit Margins Worry Analysts Amid Runaway Game Budgets

Sony’s most recent earnings report wasn’t a great one for the previously-strong-seeming PlayStation brand. As we reported, Sony downgraded their fiscal year 2024 (which runs from the beginning of April 2023 to the end of March 2024) target for PS5 sales from 25 million to 21 million. They also admitted that no major AAA franchise entries will be published over the course of this coming fiscal year. Needless to say, this wasn’t received that well, partly leading to a plunge in Sony stock that subtracted an estimated $10 billion from the Japanese company’s value.

What’s going on with all these video game industry layoffs?

The video game industry has never been known for its job security. Game development works in cycles, and when games are released and projects end, people are often laid off. When the next project starts, hiring begins once again only for another potential cut down the line. It was hard for video game developers to feel comfortable in their positions before the most recent period of unprecedented instability. But over the past few years, it’s become a downright crisis.

Huawei’s Rise Continues To Harm Apple’s Market Share In China, Claim Analysts; Other Reasons Also Highlighted For iPhone Shipments Decline

In Apple’s latest Q1 2024 earnings call, it was revealed that nearly 30 percent of the technology giant’s iPhone revenue for the quarter was thanks to its presence in one market, China, and given its recent 13 percent shipments decline in the region, the company stands to lose out on a ton if its market share continues to be threatened. Unfortunately, that looks to be the case here, with analysts believing that Huawei’s comeback is creating a torrent of problems and other reasons for that sales slump.

The Kirin 9000S chipset was the first stepping stone that would enable Huawei to stop relying on foreign technologies, but it has been a tough road, especially with the U.S. trade sanctions breathing down on the former Chinese giant’s neck. The company is rumored to want to make its Mate 60 series more accessible to customers from a pricing perspective, and with the P70 launch in tow, that would be the ideal move to make. However, a tipster states that unless Kirin 9000S production picks up, that will not be possible.

How to butcher Pals in Palworld

There’s no shortage of morally grey things you can do in Palworld. From running your own sweatshop of Pals gathering resources to capturing and selling humans to Black Marketeers, almost nothing seems to be off the table in this game. While you usually want to build up a large collection of Pals to either help run your bases or help you in battle, sometimes you might just want to strip one of any value it might have at the cost of its life. This is a great, if not morbid, way to gather some extra items off a Pal you may not have much use for. In a sentence we never thought we’d say, here’s how you can butcher your Pals in Palworld.

NASA is constantly pushing the limits, venturing into the unknown realms of air and space. Their most recent project, the UVEX mission (UltraViolet EXplorer), scheduled for launch in 2030, promises to shed more light on the mysteries of galaxy and star evolution. UVEX's primary mission is to conduct a comprehensive survey of ultraviolet light across the entire sky. But it doesn't stop there. Equipped with advanced technology, the telescope can quickly identify sources of UV radiation in the universe.

Helldivers 2’s microtransactions won’t stop you from having a good time

It’s healthy to be skeptical when you see microtransactions in games. Many titles cross the line from fair to exploitative, all but forcing players to throw in money that could buy another full game (or more) to actually have a good time. So when initial reports surfaced about Helldivers 2’s microtransactions, people were wary. At first glance, the now-popular live-service shooter utilizes some familiar strategies. There are both free and premium battle passes that feature items that can affect gameplay and a number of currencies to parse out. Plus, there wasn’t a roadmap released at launch, so it was tough to gauge how horrible any microtransactions could be.

'I've Never Seen It This Bad:' Game Developers Explain the Huge Layoffs Hitting Riot, Epic, and More

In August of last year, Ascendant Studios developer Aaron (name changed for anonymity) was ready to take a well-deserved victory lap. He had crunched hard with many of his colleagues in the final sprint to complete Ascendant’s debut game, Immortals of Aveum, but the team had finally done it. He attended a launch party in the Bay Area where he celebrated with his colleagues, some of whom he said had to pay partially out of pocket to make the trip. But while the event was supposed to be jubilant, there was an uneasy atmosphere: it seemed like Immortals of Aveum wasn’t performing especially well. At the party, developers kept asking leadership how the game was doing, only to be met with non-committal answers.
