  • For now, though, it looks like the PlayStation Now platform – which lets you stream a curated list of legacy PlayStation games directly to your console – will still be available on PS5. Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu recently featured an interview with software engineer Yasuhiro Osaki, who works at Sony Interactive Entertainment. According to DualShockers, Osaki confirmed that PS Now would continue on the next-gen PS5 console, though with some surprising limitations given wider trends in strea

  • Indeed, Relativity has just received $140 million worth of Series C funding towards its overarching aim of being the first company to launch an (almost) entirely 3D printed rocket into orbit. Other outfits, like SpaceX, may 3D print certain parts, but not the whole rocket – or rather 95% of it, with the exceptions being some electronics, cables and rubber gaskets – with that process achieved by giant 3D metal printers called Stargate. Stargate produces all the large parts needed for the rocket,

  • For players of the smash-hit battle royale Fortnite, some might be wondering why their entire game has been replaced by a black hole. These players were then sucked into a rift and were left staring at a predominantly black screen with a distant black hole at its center. This same black hole can be viewed via a livestream on the official Fortnite Twitter account. As such, it seems likely that when Fortnite does kick things back off for Season 11, it’ll return with a completely fresh map. Stay tu

  • What is ray tracing? Described as one of the most significant advancements in graphics technology, ray tracing allows games to portray incredibly realistic lighting, shadows and reflections. You’ll also need a video card that supports ray tracing, such as Nvidia’s range of RTX graphics cards.

  • But even though a release window has been set for the end of 2020 – matching that of the Xbox Scarlett – there’s still no specific launch day or even price tag for the likely expensive console.

  • Red Dead Redemption 2’s PC system requirements have been shared, along with the ways in which Rockstar has improved the graphics over the console versions. Putting up a wanted poster for 150GB is really going some, though, that’s for sure.

As a result, Red Dead Redemption 2 supports 4K resolutions (and higher) plus HDR on t
