Microsoft has finally admitted that sales of Xbox One consoles were significantly lower than those of a competitor.
At one time, Microsoft stopped sharing data on the number of consoles sold, and we could only be guided by third-party sources. Now the company also did not disclose how many Xbox One in all its versions were sold during the life of the console, but admitted that the PlayStation 4 was more successful.
Sony has surpassed Microsoft in terms of console sales and installed base, selling more than twice as much as the last generation Xbox.
Given that the PS4 sold over 117 million units, the Xbox One sold less than 58.5 million. This is in good agreement with the calculations of various sources, which spoke of 51 million Xbox One.
Get ready to buy a GeForce RTX 4090. CD Projekt RED Announces New Witcher Trilogy and Cyberpunk 2077 Sequel
Polish studio CD Project RED has shared its plans for the near future. According to the announcement, fans are waiting for a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077 and three projects based on The Witcher.
So far, upcoming projects have code names. For example, Orion is a sequel to Cyberpunk 2077 that is being worked on internally by the CD Project RED team. The release date of the new part has not yet been disclosed. The developers also reminded about the plot add-on for the game called Phantom Liberty, which will be released in 2023.
The studio also announced a new trilogy in the universe of The Witcher. The first game of the new saga, codenamed Project Polaris, is being developed on the Unreal Engine 5. The project was announced back in March 2022.
In the universe of The Witcher, another project has been announced, codenamed Canis Majoris. It will be a major RPG from a third-party studio that has nothing to do with the new trilogy.
Project Sirius is another Witcher game that will be different from other parts, combining multiplayer gameplay, campaign with quests and story. Developed by the authors of The Flame in the Flood with the support of CD Project RED.
The Polish studio also announced Hadar, a brand new game that developers are building from scratch. At the moment, the unknown project is in its early stages, and the studio is working on the basis for a new setting.
It is clear that new games (especially the sequel to Cyberpunk 2077) will require new computing capabilities. So to play at maximum (or pre-maximum) settings, you will need a very powerful 3D card.
PlayStation games will be released on PC no earlier than one year after the release on consoles. But this only applies to single player projects.
Sony will continue to release their games on PC. At the same time, large single-user projects will be ported no earlier than in a year.
About this in an interview said the head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst (Hermen Hulst). Thus, if we are talking about new games that Sony will initially plan to release on PC, such gamers will have to wait at least a year. At the same time, firstly, much more time may pass, and secondly, some games may forever remain PlayStation exclusives. For example, it probably makes no sense to leave Horizon Forbidden West and God of War Ragnarok exclusives for Sony, since the first parts of these series have already been released on PC. But there are no rumors about the corresponding versions of these projects yet.
As for the games-services that are actively developing at the moment, they will be released on consoles and PC at the same time.
PlayStation 5 has been hacked. You can install games, but you can’t run them yet
Nearly two years after the PlayStation 5 went on sale, modders have found a way to jailbreak the console, albeit with some restrictions.
IGN notes that the modder, known as SpecterDev, disclosed an apparent jailbreak that is described as an experimental IPV6 kernel exploit exploiting a WebKit vulnerability.
The jailbreak will only work on PS5 systems with firmware 4.03 or later. If you’ve updated your PS5 since October last year, you won’t be able to try the exploit. But even if you need firmware, an attempt to install a jailbreak works only in a third of cases.
As for what you can do with a jailbroken PS5 right now, you’ll get access to the system’s debug menu. You can also install games from outside the PlayStation Store, but you cannot run third-party software.
Modder Lance McDonald tested the jailbreak and was able to install the PT demo, the famous teaser of the canceled Silent Hills game. However, he was unable to start playing the game. Although the exploit offers read/write access to the PS5, there is currently no way to execute the downloaded files. In any case, PT is not backwards compatible with PS5.
It is currently unlikely that this jailbreak will be widely used anytime soon due to its limitations and the fact that Sony can ban modder accounts. On top of that, there is a risk of locking the console at that time. However, it may give other hackers and modders a foundation to build more robust jailbreak tools.
