Wargaming promised for a long, long time, and finally did it: the cult game World of Tanks has finally appeared in the Steam catalog. And although the developers had previously warned that it would not be possible to transfer progress from the Wargaming.net ID to Steam, for many users this, judging by the reviews, came as a surprise.
653 reviews have already been left on the game, most of them are negative. The main complaint comes down to the fact that a completely new account is being created on Steam, into which progress cannot be transferred from the Wargaming.net ID. Some are not satisfied with the fact that you cannot choose a game name yourself.
PC requirements for WoT have also been published. To do this, the user will need a PC with Windows 7, 8 or 10 installed, a Core i5 processor, 4 GB of RAM, a video card of at least a GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7850, broadband Internet connection and 57 GB of free space on the HDD or SSD.
Streaming games only – MSI’s new compact PC looks like an Xbox One S
Known for its outlandish design gaming PCs, MSI has released its latest creation, the MSI MAG Trident S 5M. And this model strongly resembles the Xbox One S console. For example, the new PC can be installed horizontally or vertically, its layout as a whole repeats the design of the gaming system from Microsoft. This applies to the placement of ports, cooling systems and the like.
However, the similarities end in appearance (except for the letter S in the title). MAG Trident S 5M lacks a discrete graphics card, so you can call it gaming only with a stretch. It uses a Ryzen 5000 processor – you can choose from Ryzen 7, 5 and 3 options with integrated Radeon graphics.
The novelty supports up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. The disk subsystem is represented by two M.2 slots for Gen 3 or 4 SSDs plus space for a hard drive. And all this is housed in a case with a volume of just over two liters. At the same time, we note that to increase the amount of RAM or replace drives, the case can be easily opened.
Among other features, we note three video outputs (one each HDMI 2.0, DP 1.4 and VGA), as well as a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C 15 W port on the front panel for fast charging smartphones or tablets.
MSI is positioning its PC as a gaming console for streaming games that can be installed in the living room. Declared support for Steam Remote, MSI App player and Xbox Game Pass. The OS is Windows 11.
Note that for the first time the novelty was shown at the beginning of this year at CES 2022.
Sony will not let you enjoy the old games to the fullest. PS3 projects within PS Plus will be released without add-ons
As part of the updated subscription service Sony PS Plus will be available, including projects for PS3. But due to the very specific architecture of the processor of this console, the games will be available in the cloud service.
And now it became known that such games, unfortunately, will not support add-ons. DLC may someday be added, but at first you definitely shouldn’t expect them.
For example, Asura’s Wrath, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Crash Commando, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and a number of other games received various kinds of add-ons at one time, for some projects there were a lot of such DLCs. But within the framework of PS Plus, it will not be possible to try them out. The source also publishes a list of PS3 games, but we published them a week ago, when Sony itself did this.
As a reminder, today we also learned that some classic games will work even worse on the new consoles than on the original PlayStation.
Some classic games on the PlayStation 5 will not work as well as on the original console. All because of the PAL standard
Yesterday we got our first look at the classic PlayStation game available as part of the new PS Plus subscription for PlayStation 5 owners. Today, new details about such games have appeared.
In particular, it turned out that a number of games work with a frame rate of only 50 Hz and according to the PAL standard. For example, this applies to Ape Escape. At the same time, the original game on the PlayStation worked according to the NTSC standard, which makes the gameplay feel smoother.
We know for sure that not all classic PS Plus games will work on PAL. For example, Siphon Filter and Abe’s Odyssey work according to the NTSC standard. However, unfortunately, all Sony Japan Studio games will be the same as Ape Escape.
A complete list of all the games available on PS Plus has also appeared, but for now only for the Asian region. You can get acquainted with them at this link, but in other regions the list may be slightly different.
Now the SSD in PlayStation 5 seems to be slow. Apacer showed drives with speeds up to 13,000 MB / s
It’s been literally a year and a half since the launch of the PlayStation 5, which, among other things, impressed with its ultra-fast SSD. But a lot has changed in the market in a year and a half.
Apacer showcases next-generation PCIe 5.0 SSDs with read/write speeds of 13,000 and 12,000 MB/s respectively!
Recall that the Sony console has an SSD with a speed of about 7000 MB / s, that is, the new Apacer will be almost twice as fast.
The Apacer AS2280F5 drive does not stand out in any way. It has a heat sink, but overall it’s just an SSD. There is also the Zadak TWSG5 model, which is distinguished by the addition of graphene and aluminum to the cooling system.
There are no other details yet. In particular, the company does not name the controller used, but it could be the Phison E20.
Engineers came up with a way to increase the cooling efficiency of processors by 700%
