    Login issues and crashes are preventing players from making progress, bonus or otherwise.

    The new listing looks to be an even bigger scam than the legit game.

    You may have been informed via various social channels that The Day Before snuck its way back on to Steam today.

    A "new" Steam listing for The Day Before popped up a few hours ago on the Valve run storefront....

    The 'Valve Prism' VR Headset is Fake

    Stop believing everything you see on the Internet.

    The Internet did that thing again where they latched onto a clear hoax as if it were real. Someone put up a website for a "Valve Prism" virtual reality headset earlier today and tried to pass it off as a legitimate device from Valve. Except it's fake. It's not real. You all got bamboozled.

    At a glance, the website seems convincing enough. It depicts various renders, fluff words, and impressive technical specs...

    by Shawn Zipay
    An announcement is expected to take place soon.

    For a little while now, rumors suggested that Xbox will begin to offer many of their first-party titles on competing hardware platforms. Just this week, those rumors were given more substance from a number of sources that say games such as Starfield, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Hi-Fi Rush, and even Gears of War could end up on PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch.
