Sony has improved the performance of the PlayStation 5 with a big update

Published

on

Sony has released a fresh update to the system software for the PlayStation 5. Firmware numbered 21.02-04.50.00 is now available to PS5 users worldwide for installation.

As with most firmware updates for Sony consoles, the release notes are minimal and only focus on improving system performance. However, traditionally, renewal can also bring internal changes. This is evidenced by the impressive size of the update – 914 MB.

Sony explains in the release note:

This system software update improves console performance. ”

New system software is usually automatically loaded onto the console. You can also manually download the latest firmware via the PS5 System Settings (Settings> System> System Software> System Software Update).

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is coming next month to Switch Online

Published

on

Nintendo is just coming to announce the exit of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on Nintendo 64 catalog of the subscription Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pack. After welcoming Paper Mario last month, another cult title from the 64-bit console arrived on Nintendo’s mobile console subscription; and a selection of choices, to boot.

Link in Termina phase

Is there still need to present The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask ? In the large community of fans of the franchise, this second Nintendo 64 installment is pulling the punches with its predecessor Ocarina of Time for the coveted title of “best Zelda of all time”; a purist match which we will avoid taking sides. The followers of Majora, however, have important arguments in their favor: it is one of the most unique episodes of the saga, as much in terms of atmosphere and artistic direction as of gameplay.

With its famous three-day system and time travel, Majora’s Mask is also known for introducing the antagonist Skull Kid—and all the mysteries surrounding him. All that remains is to cross your fingers for a better quality emulation compared to the other games in the catalog. No specific release day has been announced, but we should probably expect its arrival in the second half of next month, which would coincide with the monthly release rate of titles on the Nintendo 64 catalog.

The Switch is rare

Still in the news of Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pack, another Nintendo 64 title will join the catalog today: it is Banjo-Kazooie, the cult platformer from Rareware studio. Its announcement over the past month had raised several questions, and for good reason—Rare being currently under the fold of Microsoft, its Switch release could open the doors to other games from the studio like Perfect Dark, or who knows, goldeneye 007… Hope gives life.

PlayStation creator Ken Kutaragi doesn’t see the point of VR headsets

Published

on

Ken Kutaragi, the man who brilliantly launched Sony into video games, today has some pretty harsh words about virtual worlds and VR headsets. Regarding the latter, the “dad of the PlayStation” thus declared to find them “boring”.

In December 2019, the one who was still honorary president of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. looked back on twenty-five years of PlayStation history. And if Ken Kutaragi then mentioned the future of the brand, he did not speak about what Sony had developed after him. In particular virtual reality materialized in the PlayStation VR.

It may have been better if the father of PlayStation hadn’t said anything about it, because those words would probably never have been validated. We have just learned, in an interview with Bloomberg, that Ken Kutaragi is far from being interested in virtual reality such as that which is approached with a helmet.

Father of PlayStation finds VR headsets ‘boring’

Ken Kutaragi begins by considering that in his view, the metaverse (a virtual world, quite simply) is of little use insofar as it mimics reality:

“Being in the real world is very important, but the metaverse is about doing near-real in the virtual world, and I don’t see the point of doing that. Prefer to be a flawless avatar instead of your real person? It’s essentially no different from anonymous messaging sites.”

Following the train of thought of the one who now works on assistance robots, we will not be surprised to see him shoot orange bullets at virtual reality helmets:

“Helmets would isolate you from the real world, and I can’t agree with that. Helmets are just boring”.

Sony is however preparing to finalize the second phase of its entry into the world of virtual reality, with the recent presentation of the PlayStation VR2 at CES 2022. Horizon Call of the Mountain, jointly developed by Guerilla and PlayStation Firesprite, was the first title announced on this new device. The PS VR2 could land at the end of the year.

A free game to learn history

Published

on

If memorizing event dates isn’t your thing, you still need a game that encourages the process. There are several such in stores, and now there is one on the Internet that can be enjoyed for free.

The game is very simple. At the top, cards with events and dates appear, and we have to drag them into the lower timeline, in the correct order. If we have one below that says “British Empire” and we get another one that talks about the discovery of fire, we will put it before the first one.

If we are right, it will stay green, if we are wrong, it will turn red, and the lives we have in the form of hearts appear on top. With three mistakes, we’ll have to start over.

Is available in wikitrivia.tomjwatson.com, and simulates the Timeline card game available on amazon in this link.

In this case there are not only historical events of great historical relevance, there are also dates of birth of actors and curiosities in general, such as the founding of a famous restaurant, but in general it helps to have a better notion of the timeline of the history of humanity, to know that the Mongols got their act together 200 years after the creation of the Crown of Aragon and before the rule of the British Empire, for example.

Once the card is placed at the bottom, whether it is in the right place or not, we can click on it to turn it over and see more details, most obtained directly from Wikipedia.
