Sony Could Be Working On A Playstation Equivalent To Xbox Game Pass

Sony Could Be Working On A PlayStation Equivalent To Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft’s Xbox platform has a subscription service called Xbox Game Pass which is basically like the Netflix of games. Subscribing to Game Pass will give users access to a library of games that they can play whenever they want for a fixed price every month. This is obviously cheaper compared to purchasing individual titles, but you might not necessarily have access to the latest games.

That being said, it seems that Sony could be developing something similar of their own. This is according to a report from Bloomberg in which they claim that Sony is apparently developing a similar service codenamed “Spartacus” in which it would essentially offer up the same features as Xbox Game Pass.

Nokia 9 Pureview Owners Won't Get Android 11

Nokia 9 PureView Owners Won't Get Android 11

Yes, a phone that’s about 2 years old isn’t even getting Android 11, and don’t get us started on Android 12! According to the company, “Nokia phones are about offering the best possible smartphone experience, day in and day out. It’s something we take pride in. That is why we had to make the tough choice not to offer the Android 11 software upgrade for Nokia 9 PureView. Incompatibilities between the camera and the software would have led to a compromised experience that does not meet our high standards.”

To make it up to those who did buy the phone, the company has announced they will instead be offering customers a 50% discount on a budget Nokia phone like the Nokia XR20. It’s a very odd decision because why would anyone go from a high-end device to a budget handset, one that they would still have to pay for even with a 50% discount, just for an Android update?

Sony Patents A PS-Like Controller For Mobile Devices

However, it seems that Sony has actually filed a patent for a mobile controller that resembles the DualShock controller design except that this is for mobile devices.

The patent describes a controller system where users can clamp a phone in between the controller, meaning that you can hold your phone and play using the controller at the same time.

Japanese Retailers Are Drawing On Ps5 Boxes To Discourage Scalpers

Japanese Retailers Are Drawing On PS5 Boxes To Discourage Scalpers

Due to a variety of factors such as popularity and the global chip shortage, even until today it is still somewhat difficult to get your hands on a Sony PS5 console.

For example, as report by VGC, retail chain Nojima Denki has taken to writing the name of the buyer inside the box of the PS5, and also removing the packaging of the controller.
