Helldivers 2 Releases Important New Update

Arrowhead Game Studios releases update 1.000.10 for Helldivers 2, making additional improvements to game performance, log in related issues, as well as additional crash fixes. The latest patch arrives after a tumultuous weekend in which Arrowhead activated a double XP and Requisitions modifier in Helldivers 2 as a way to apologize for the server issues at launch. Unfortunately, the act caused an even bigger bottleneck as more and more players attempted to access the game, which ultimately compounded the problems even more.

Sony Readying a 'Pro' Version of PS5 This Year Ahead of GTA 6 Launch in 2025: Report

Sony could reportedly release a Pro version of the PlayStation 5 later this year to help PS5 sales find a second wind in the latter half of the current console generation.

Sony is set to miss its PS5 sales target for fiscal year 2023, with the Japanese electronics giant expecting to sell four million units fewer than its 25-million goal for the year.

Unfortunately, themes aren’t available on PS5, though Sony has implemented a cool new feature that modifies the background as you browse your collection of games.

Sony recently announced that the PS5 has sold 54.8 million units worldwide, and while that’s quite an impressive number for a console that’s only just entered the fourth year of its lifecycle, it has missed the company’s internal sales target by quite a bit. Sony has, as such, revised its forecast for total PS5 units shipped during FY 2023/24 (which ends on March 31) from 25 million down to 21 million, and the company is now feeling the immediate repercussions of that.

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.

That’s an increase of 1.1 million year-over-year, and it puts the PS5’s lifetime sales at 54.8 million units to date.

Sony somehow managed to panic the entire PS5 fanbase this week, when it said it won’t release any entries in its “major existing franchises” this year. The wording was always imperative here, however: it appeared to be alluding to tentpole series like Marvel’s Spider-Man and God of War, thus meaning it’ll rely on smaller franchises and new intellectual property instead.

For the best part of this generation, Sony’s been pressured by a vocal part of the gaming community to borrow Xbox Game Pass’ unproven business model with PS Plus. The platform holder eventually decided to take a half-step, merging PS Now with its existing subscription but resisting the urge to add day one first-party software to the service. It’s described this strategy as unsustainable.

We don’t know about you, but it feels like the PS5 has barely broken a sweat yet. Despite being over three years old, the system’s lifespan has been hugely impacted by the pandemic, which has seen its first-party software cadence slow to a crawl and its early years massively affected by hardware shortages. It’s a little odd to hear Sony talk about the system entering the “latter half” of its lifecycle, then.

In case you missed it, Sony says it's not planning to release any existing franchise games this side of March 2025, meaning any first-party output in 2024 will be fresh properties, such as Stellar Blade or Rise of the Ronin.

Is Twisted Metal About To Get A Revival On PlayStation?

When PlayStation first came out, one of the biggest things that Sony tried to do was not just establish itself as the “dominant hardware system” via its graphics but give itself plenty of software titles that gamers could lash on to. That’s why iconic characters like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, and more were born. They became the “mascots” for that first generation of PlayStation, but they weren’t alone. The first Twisted Metal game came out in 1995, and it helped spark a new vehicle combat game that gamers couldn’t get enough of. For a while, it was something that Sony kept alive because it kept selling. Then, the franchise ceased to be after the PS3 title in 2012.
