Sony's Jim Ryan Reportedly Said His Goal is to 'Block Your Merger' in Closed Door Meeting with Activision

The CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment reportedly had some choice words during a meeting with Activision.

It has been a ridiculous day for Sony when it comes to new details that have come out about the company's opposition to the Microsoft and Activision Blizzard merger.

First, a new report from The Verge's Tom Warren shared some key pieces of information from documents (PDF download) that were recently submitted to the UK's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA)....

Review: The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition

An easy purchase for new players but maybe a hard sell for existing owners.

It was not until I reinstalled the original PC release of The Outer Worlds that I was able to really appreciate the improvements made with the release of The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition. Initially, I believed that this looked exactly like the same game that I had played on PC back in late 2019 when it first came out.

"I'm just not seeing what makes this Spacer's Choice Edition worth...

    Elden Ring Players Died Billions of Times

    Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Story Trailer is Light on Story

    Finally, a story trailer that doesn't just spill the entire can of beans.

    EA and Respawn Entertainment just released a new story focused trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Unlike many other story trailers for games, this one doesn't exactly reveal much of the plot. At least, I don't think it did. It was kept vague enough while showing a bunch of quick scenes.

    Still, if you don't want any spoilers at all, it's best to avoid this trailer.

    New 'COUNTER STRIKE' and 'CS2' Trademarks Filed by Valve

    New trademarks by Valve sure do seem to be hinting at something. But what ever could it be?

    March really started off with a bang for Counter-Strike fans when Nvidia included references to something called Counter-Strike 2. Specifically, the drivers starting with 531.18 included profiles for "Counter-strike 2 (cs2.exe)" and "Counter-strike 2 (csgos2.exe)."

    Since that time, the Counter-Strike community has gone a bit rabid in their desire for a Source...

    In honor of the game's fifth anniversary, Ubisoft rolled out a new 60fps patch for Far Cry 5. This update, out now on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S will allow you to run the game at a much higher framerate than what you were used to seeing on consoles.

    Redfall Story Trailer

    There's more to Redfall than simply slaying vampires.

    If you thought that Redfall, the upcoming action title from Arkane Austin was purely about slaying vampires, you would be mistaken. Sure, there is a lot of that vampire slaying going on but there's also something a little extra going on. A little something that studios like to call "a story."

    The latest trailer for Redfall shares with us information about the game's plot. That plot that seems to involve a...

    by Shawn Zipay
    Do you prefer consoles? PC? Maybe mobile is your preferred platform?

    Do you like playing on consoles? Do you prefer to play games on PC? What about mobile games? Maybe you prefer to spend most of your time on your phone playing this, that, or the other....
