Nintendo Switch Lite Won't Support All Switch Games

Nintendo Switch Lite Won't Support All Switch Games

The other day, Nintendo officially announced the Nintendo Switch Lite. For all intents and purposes, the Switch Lite seemed identical to the Switch, except that it was smaller, lacked detachable controllers, could not connect to a TV, and was also cheaper. However, it seems that the differences between consoles is big enough where not all games will be supported.

For example, games that require the console to be connected to the TV will not be supported on the Switch Lite. Games that are also played in tabletop mode will not be supported either. Some games that require the gamers to have a Joy-Con will also not be supported, but in those instances, there are some that will work if players connect Joy-Con controllers to their console.

Sony's 'uncharted' Movie Won't Directly Adapt The Game's Story

Sony's 'Uncharted' Movie Won't Directly Adapt The Game's Story

In a recent interview with Games Radar, the movie’s director Dan Trachtenberg, he revealed that the movie will not be adapting the stories used in the game. According to Trachentberg, “[I] have been approached with different versions of this tale and have always been not that interested in it because I didn’t really want to trace the game.”

He adds, “I didn’t really feel like it was at all worthy of making a video game adaptation, [if] we’re just gonna copy what the game is and just serve people a lesser experience than what they’ve experienced in such an incredible way.” He also seems to be confident that if there were a new Uncharted game made, they would want to use his storyline.

Sony Replaces Pes 2019 With Detroit For July Ps Plus Free Games

Sony Replaces PES 2019 With Detroit For July PS Plus Free Games


Sony normally confirms the PS Plus lineup of free titles for a coming month a couple of days before. It then sticks to that lineup for the entire month before it announces the one for the next month. Sony has taken the rather unusual step of swapping a title that it had previously confirmed for another one. Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 has been removed from the July 2019 PS Plus free games lineup.

Sony confirmed today that PlayStation Plus subscribers will now get Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition instead of Pro Evolution Soccer 2019. Horizon Chase Turbo remains unaffected by this decision.

Playstation Plus Games For July 2019 Revealed

PlayStation Plus Games For July 2019 Revealed

Sony offers a handful of games for free every month to members of its PlayStation Plus program. July 2019 is going to be no different. Sony has now confirmed the free games lineup for the coming month. The focus is going to be on sports titles in July so those who’re into sports will particularly like the lineup.

PES Productions’ Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 is the first title on the Sony PS Plus free games list for July 2019. It’s the only true competitor to the FIFA franchise from Electronic Arts. However, it doesn’t have some of the top-level clubs and leagues largely because EA has deeper pockets to pay for those expensive licenses that guarantee exclusivity to its franchise. PES fans do appreciate the franchise for its solid gameplay.

Square Enix Is Considering A Subscription Service For Its Games

Square Enix Is Considering A Subscription Service For Its Games

Speaking to Game Informer, Square Enix’s President and CEO Yosuke Matsuda was quoted as saying, “We’re working on that in a variety of ways. That is a request that we hear often. As far as our major titles go, most of those, we still have variations out that you can play now. The more classic titles that you might have played on NES, we are still working hard to make it so you can play those.”

He adds, “We actually have launched a dedicated project internally to port those, so we are working to make them available on a variety of platforms. Certainly down the road, we would like to see that on a subscription or streaming service, so we’re exploring the possibility of creating a dedicated channel for ourselves.”

Sony Launches Studio To Create Movies Out Of PlayStation Games Itself


Sony has had to work with other media companies when it wanted to make shows based on its vast library of PlayStation games. The company is now switching gears by setting up its own studio which will allow Sony to quickly adapt its PlayStation games into TV shows and movies on its own. This new division is called PlayStation Productions.

PlayStation Productions is overseen by Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Chairman of Worldwide Studios Shawn Layden. The studio will be tasked with developing and producing projects that are based on Sony’s vast library of PlayStation games.

Nintendo Has No New First-party 3ds Games To Announce

Nintendo Has No New First-Party 3DS Games To Announce

While Nintendo has yet to officially confirm anything, the company’s latest statement certainly doesn’t seem to be doing anything to quell the rumors. In a statement made to Kotaku, the company revealed that they do not have any new first-party 3DS titles to announce. “We have nothing new to announce regarding first-party software for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.”

Instead, the company said, ”We can confirm that new software is coming from third-party publishers.” As we mentioned, this only seems to fuel speculation that this could be Nintendo’s way of winding things down with their 3DS console. If it is true, this was a long time coming because ever since the Switch was announced, many were wondering if it could replace Nintendo’s handhelds.

Sony To Unveil New Games During State Of Play Broadcast Tomorrow


Sony has confirmed a new online broadcast for tomorrow. Dubbed “State of Play,” the company will announce new games, show new trailers for the first time, and provide fans updates on the new titles in the pipeline for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation VR.

The idea for this broadcast might feel familiar to you if you regularly follow gaming-related news. Nintendo essentially does the same thing with its Nintendo Direct presentations. It divides announcements in multiple broadcasts throughout the year instead of making a big appearance at an industry event like E3.

Nintendo Doesn't Want Gamers To Spend Too Much On Mobile Games

Nintendo Doesn't Want Gamers To Spend Too Much On Mobile Games

Oddly enough that doesn’t seem to be what Nintendo wants. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, it seems that Nintendo is apparently asking for developers of its mobile games to try and make it so that gamers won’t need to spend excessive amounts of money on its game.

This was revealed by an agent for CyberAgent, the developer behind the mobile Dragalia Lost title. “Nintendo is not interested in making a large amount of revenue from a single smartphone game. If we managed the game alone, we would have made a lot more.” Nintendo later confirmed this to be true in statement that reads, “We discuss various things, not just limited to payments, to deliver high-quality fun to consumers.”
