Other big games included are Demon's Souls, which costs $49.69, It Takes Two, which's been reduced to $29.99, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, which comes in at $44.59, and Hitman 3, which can be grabbed for $29.99.

However, the sale isn't all new games, and for those looking to grab themselves something on the cheaper side, there are some notable picks for under $10. Red Dead Online's standalone release can be grabbed for just $9.99, while players can also get Star Wars: Battlefront 2 for $9.99, Battlefield 5 for $9.59, The Forest for $7.99, For Honor for $4.49, and PUBG for $9.89.

There's a range of DLCs to pick up too, including Borderlands 3's season pass, Mortal Kombat Ultimate's add-on bundle, virtual currency for NBA 2K21, Jump Force's character pass, and in-game unlock bundles for Devil May Cry 5. Those looking to add to their collection of Sims 4 DLCs are also in luck, with the sale featuring a ton of the game's add-ons, such as Realm of Magic, Strangerville, Vampires, and its Star-Wars-themed vacation packJourney to Batuu.

For those wondering why a specific game hasn't received a discount, Sony teased in a PlayStation Blog post that more titles will be added to the promotion on August 4. However, it notes that several discounts will also be removed, so those with their eye on a specific game should make sure they've snagged it before the sale reshuffles in two weeks' time.

The PlayStation Summer Sale concludes on August 18.

Is New World Coming to Xbox?

GameRant 21 July, 2021 - 11:52am

New World's development has not been a smooth ride. Following its initial reveal, Amazon Games' had to rework the setting due to criticism for the game's treatment of colonialism. New World also faced multiple delays, presumably due to COVID-19 slowing down development.

It hasn't been all bad news, however. Amazon Games has been using the extra development time well, doing extensive play-testing and improving New World's combat systems. It's safe to say that it's made up for the rocky start, and players are counting down the days until the August 31 launch date.

Amazon needs this game to be a success, which begs the question: what platforms will it be on? For most major games online games, like Genshin Impact, the best strategy tends to be putting the game on as many platforms as possible. But New World only has a release date for PC. Are there plans to bring the game to consoles, like the Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S?

Amazon Games has not stated any current plans to port New World to other platforms. The studio seems solely focused on the PC build for the sake of stability and graphical fidelity.

If the game is eventually ported to consoles, the Xbox is a safe bet as a platform choice. The game is already playable on Microsoft PCs, so porting might be easier on Xbox compared to other consoles. Xbox's Phil Spencer is also pushing cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass, and the xCloud system may be able to handle Amazon's hardware worries.

Still, considering how Amazon is working on its own game streaming service with Amazon Luna, the company might not want to give a major title like New World to a competitor, even if it improves the game's chance of succeeding.

It's still up in the air on whether New World will ever be ported. Players should expect PC exclusivity while the game launches and the developers work on ironing out the 1.0 version's wrinkles. After that, it's anyone's guess.

New World is scheduled to be released on August 31 for PC.

Sony is seemingly in the process of rolling out its first revision of the PlayStation 5 hardware.

A new version of the PS5 Digital Edition console detailed in an official Japanese product manual shows that the updated hardware model (CFI-1100B) weighs 3.6kg, which is 300g less than the launch version (CFI-1000B).

The revised hardware also appears to include a different screw used to attach the console’s stand.
