Fujifilm's Webcam Software For Mac Will Be Releasing This July

Last month, Fujifilm announced that they would be releasing the Fujifilm X Webcam software for computers. In case you missed the announcement, basically this is a software that turns Fujifilm digital cameras into webcams pretty much as a plug-and-play method, and the good news is that it will be coming to Mac computers next month.

When the company initially announced the release of the software, it was only available for PCs, but with this update, Fujifilm has confirmed that development of the macOS version is in development and is expected to be released around mid-July (no specific mention of dates, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled).

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.

Ea Access Ps4 Launch Confirmed For July 24th

EA Access PS4 Launch Confirmed For July 24th


Electronic Arts launched its EA Access game subscription service almost five years ago for the Xbox One. The service enables subscribers to pay a monthly fee in return for which they get access to a substantial library of EA titles. The service has never been available on the PlayStation 4 but that’s set to change next month. EA has confirmed that EA Access is going to launch on the PS4 on July 24th.

It was actually Sony that rejected EA Access for the PlayStation 4 back in 2014 because it made all the sense in the world for EA to offer this service on both major gaming platforms. It had no reason to choose Xbox over PlayStation but it couldn’t serve the latter because Sony didn’t allow it. It’s unclear what made Sony change its mind but it has now been officially confirmed that EA Access for PS4 will be available starting July 24th.
