News Roundups: Big PS4 Announcements + Call of Duty HACKERS + Gamers Are GENIUSES?

Sony's prepping some major announcements this month. Call of Duty World War II is still in beta but it's already plagued by hackers. A new study out of Germany actually has GOOD things to say about video games, like that they make you smarter! Plus, Rocksteady's next project, Red Dead Redemption 2 mapped, FIFA's online support for Switch is... not great, PUBG may be heading for PlayStation, PSVR's getting an upgrade, no more Metroid remakes, Commodore 64 makes a return, and Stardew Valley dated for Switch.

    I know the console wars aren't cool or whatever, but I do think it's kind of amazing that Playstation are going to do this big announcement broadcast literally a week before the X.B.O.X. launches.

    Gah! I really dislike when the detailed research procedure and detailed findings are behind a paywall. I want to see this for myself. The summary at Science Daily doesn't seem to do a good job at explaining the learning procedure, test, and results. There is also a "conflict of interests" section that I really would like to see, but a paywall? Ugh. (Science Daily has also had to retract a couple of articles. So, there's that point of doubt in my brain, too.)


    I would love to believe that action games help with quick thinking. It makes sense, but I still want to be sure that it everything they did also makes sense. (Also, one paper isn't exactly a fact, yet. It's typically a start. Other papers much challenge it and support it.)

    Nice Glasses Mica :)

    Great to hear that Stardew has a release date for the switch.  I might have to get one now.
