$400 for digital-only, $500 for the full system.

The next-gen is now fully in gear.

Today, the company announced that the Digital Edition will retail for $399.99 (USD) while the "regular" version with a disc drive will retail for $499.99.

Both consoles are expected to launch in select countries...
 

EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

EA is changing the name of their Origin client to "EA Desktop." EA is calling their new app a "next-generation PC gaming platform."

This renaming will...

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

Feeling younger in my mind.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...
 

Tiananmen Square Footage Removed from Call of Duty Trailer

Activision bending the knee? What? No. Never!

The first trailer for Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War was blocked in China and then later edited from every other region because it contained roughly one second of footage from the Tiananmen Square protests from 1989. This is when the Chinese government had a big uh "crackdown" on pro-democracy protesters. That is to say, they murdered the fuck out of their citizens, or made them "disappear," and attacked them with...

  • A New Skate Game was Announced

    A New Skate Game was Announced

    #Skate4? Maybe?

    To close out their presentation last night, EA announced a new Skate game! And that's literally all we know about it. Nobody during the presentation said that it was a Skate 4. Nobody said which platforms they were looking at developing the game for. All we know is that there's a new Skate game coming somewhere and at some time.

    All of EA's talk and literature on the game is simply calling it "Skate." Perhaps it's just a reboot of the franchise...

    Apex Legends Season 5 Details and Steam Release Date

    What's this about a Switch release?

    Season 5 for Apex Legends has been a big one for the teams at Respawn Entertainment and EA.

  • Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales Utilizing "4D Character Scans"

    Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales Utilizing "4D Character Scans"

    And other marketing speak.

    Insomniac Games took to the PlayStation Blog today to talk about some of the cool tech that will be utilized in Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. This PlayStation 5 launch title is said to be "akin to a game like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy" in terms of overall scope. So it's not quite a full sequel, one of which is still presumably coming at some point, but it's also a fair bit more robust than an add-on.

    Will it be priced accordingly?...
