A brand new PS5 soon available? Nintendo has its accounts in the green Cavill and The Witcher, the pill goes wrong
A brand new PS5 coming soon?
The PS5 is almost two years old! The global situation has greatly disrupted its production and sale. For good reason, shortages and an explosion of prices have been noted by users. Sony has a habit of renewing itself by offering new consoles regularly, which is very likely to happen according to the site The Leak! A new model, lighter and less imposing would actually be in preparation for the third quarter of 2023. For the moment, Sony has not confirmed the arrival of the PS5 Slim, but rumors are circulating more and more on the net! The Insider Gaming site speculated that this new model could indeed replace the current version, which should cease production by October 2023.
Nintendo has its accounts in the green
Nintendo has released the figures for its latest financial statement. The least we can say is that everything is fine. With a turnover of 4.47 billion euros, the Japanese company marks an increase of 5%. A good performance which is accompanied by a record net profit of 1.57 billion, up 34%! For its part, the Switch has now sold more than 114.33 million copies. 3.25 million new consoles found takers over the last half. If it continues on this line, it could soon exceed the sales of the PS4. On the games side, there are 917.59 million games sold since the release of the Switch. Here again, no doubt that the billion games sold will be reached soon. Last semester, Splatoon 3 was Nintendo’s best-selling game.
Cavill and The Witcher, the pill goes wrong
If it were necessary to designate the representative of the geeks in Hollywood, chances are that the choice will be Henry Cavill. A great video game player, he is particularly a fan of World of Warcraft and Mass Effect. The 39-year-old British actor is known for his role as Superman. More recently, he played Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix series The Witcher. But recently, he announced that he will not be reprising his role as the Witcher in Season 4 of the series. He will therefore put away his 3 swords at the end of Season 3 and will pass the torch to actor Liam Hemsworth. Besides, playing Geralt of Rivia was a bit of a childhood dream for Cavill. If we do not officially know the reasons for his departure, we can indulge in a few hypotheses. For example, a rumor points to his dissatisfaction with the script of the series. The latter would deviate too much from Sapkowski’s original work for his taste. Contractually, he was well committed for 7 seasons. However, he had said in an interview that he would be present “as long as we can continue to tell great stories that honor the work of the author”.
