After more than a year and a half since their launch, the Xbox Series game consoles have finally managed to outdo their competitors and become the top-selling consoles on the market.
Thanks to the high availability of Microsoft consoles in March, the Xbox Series was the market leader for the entire first quarter, surpassing both the PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch, according to the NPD Group. However, only in terms of money. In quantitative terms, the Nintendo console still remained unattainable.
Also last March was the best for the Xbox in 11 years, which indicates a successful current generation of consoles.
At the same time, analysts note that while Microsoft did have excellent shipments in March, they were only able to meet part of the demand. That is, if there was no shortage of consoles, sales would be even higher. But this applies to all current set-top boxes in the last year and a half.
As for the rest of the data from the report, we can note Elden Ring, which remains the best-selling game since the beginning of the year, and the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller, which remains the best-selling gaming accessory since the beginning of the year.
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.
