PlayStation 5 Starting at $400, Launches Starting November 12

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

The next-gen is now fully in gear. With Microsoft announcing the price and release date of their Xbox Series X, the only piece of the puzzle that remained was what Sony would do with the PlayStation 5. 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...

  • Where are the Reviews for the Steam Controller and Steam Link?

    Where are the Reviews for the Steam Controller and Steam Link?

    Hello denizens of Total Gaming Network! I feel as though I owe some sort of an explanation here as to where the promised reviews are for the Steam Controller and Steam Link.

    Part of it is because I am hitting some terrible mental blockades that have really put a damper on creating anything cohesive as far as reviews go. It started with the Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns review and it has not let up since then. I'm not sure why I've been hit with such a terrible bout of writer's...

  • 10 Awards and 10 World Premiere Trailers for The Game Awards 2015

    10 Awards and 10 World Premiere Trailers for The Game Awards 2015

    Geoff Keighley mentioned this morning that there will be 10 "world premiere" trailers shown off at The Game Awards 2015. These don't really mean 10 new games, but rather 10 new trailers for games that may or may not already be announced. These go alongside the 10 on-stage awards that will be given out.

    There are 22 award categories this year, meaning that less than 50% of the actual awards will be given any on-stage time at The Game Awards. But hey, at least you'll get that...

    PSA: The Steam Fall Sale - Exploration Sale - is on Now

    Valve kicked off the Fall 2015 sale for Steam earlier today. They're calling it the "Exploration Sale" and includes nearly 8,800 games on sale throughout the service. Gone are the daily deals and gone are the rotating community voted sales. What you see is what you get for this one. There is literally no reason to wait if you see a game on sale that you want to buy since it won't be going any cheaper during the sale period. Valve will cycle in new games on the main page but again, these...

  • Killing Floor 2 Takes a Cue from CS:GO with Cosmetic Item Pack Microtransactions

    Earlier, Tripwire Interactive announced some new cosmetic item packs that have a chance to drop while playing Killing Floor 2. Much like in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or Team Fortress 2, these packs will contain a fairly random assortment of cosmetic gear that you can unlock by purchasing a key from the store. That means you randomly get a supply crate, you buy a key, and you cross your fingers that you will get the particular cosmetic item you want.

    Rainbow Six Siege Uses Nvidia Gameworks and This is a Trailer for It

    If you didn't already know that Rainbow Six Siege utilizes Nvidia Gameworks, you probably do now after reading that headline. A new trailer for Siege came out today that shows off some of the technology at work.

    From the looks of it, the only Gameworks "exclusive" features are TXAA and HBAO+. Essentially, it features some of the first things you'll probably turn off in your settings in order to gain better performance.

    Also of note is the open beta w...
