Studio CD Projekt Red asked to remove from the NexusMods website a modification for the game Cyberpunk 2077, which allowed having sex with Keanu Reeves’ hero – Johnny Silverhand, as well as other characters. The developers clarified that they are not opposed to creating mods with replacement of character models, but not if they are used for explicit scenes without the permission of the actors who provided them with their appearance. reports Eurogamer.
The mod was created by a site user with the nickname Catmino. It allowed players to manually change character textures. Along with the mod, Catmino published an instruction that explained how to use the model of Silverhand and other heroes instead of the model, for example, the sex bot from the game.
Thus, players could participate in a sex scene with Keanu Reeves, however, the newspaper notes, the mod did not work well enough – Silverhand and the other characters still spoke in the voice of a sex bot and remained dressed. However, despite some imperfection, the players still expressed admiration for the mod – as one of the users wrote, this is “the closest opportunity to have an affair with Johnny.”
At the time of publication page modifications on NexusMods are no longer available.
CDPR said it does not tolerate creating game modifications that might offend other people. In particular, the use of models of actors who gave their appearance to the characters of Cyberpunk 2077 can be poorly received by them, the developers say, so moderators must first obtain permission from all interested parties to publish such creations. At the same time, the studio promised that they would be allowed to do anything with the characters whose appearance CDPR created from scratch.
Keanu Reeves himself has not yet commented on the creation of a mod with the participation of his digital model in explicit scenes of the game.
January 27 developers added modding tools into the game so that players can independently supplement Cyberpunk 2077 with new content and fix some bugs. CDPR has promised on the official website that it will continually update the tool along with regular game patches to ensure compatibility.
Sales of Xbox and Microsoft games sank. The company reported for the next financial quarter
Microsoft has published a report on the results of the second quarter of fiscal year 2023.
The company’s revenue rose 2% to $52.7 billion, while net income fell 12% to $16.4 billion.
This is far from Microsoft’s best quarter. These results are due to several reasons. First, there is a decline in revenue from manufacturers of laptops with Windows and PC sales in the market as a whole. Secondly, sales of Microsoft devices sank by a considerable 39%.
Also not the best way to feel in the last quarter and the gaming division of the company. In general, the Xbox division was marked by a decrease in revenue. Game sales fell by 13%, hardware sales fell by the same amount, that is, primarily consoles, and revenue from services and services decreased by 12%.
At the same time, Microsoft notes the further growth of the Game Pass service, but, as always, does not name the number of users and revenue.

Is Intel preparing a new Arc graphics card for budget gamers? Model with 16 Xe cores lit up on the Web
Intel may release another Arc graphics card in the near future.
The unnamed model showed up in CompuBench. It is known that this model has 256 computing units, that is, 16 Xe cores. We have not seen such a configuration among desktop adapters before. Recall that the Arc A580 model, which we were told about back in the summer and which has not yet been released, has 24 Xe cores.
At the same time, Intel has a mobile Arc A550M with 16 Xe cores, which means that the company may be preparing a desktop version of this model. Benchmark says that the unnamed model is 42% slower than the top-end Arc A770. If the difference is about the same in games, then this is about the level between the GTX 1650 Super and the GTX 1660 Super.
