On the Daily program, Xbox and PlayStation release the first clues about the new generation of consoles, God of War Ragnarök and Pokémon break records and The Witcher 3 is revealed on next gen. The Daily, let’s go!
Sony and Microsoft already on coal!
And if the takeover of Activision Blizzard King allowed us to know more about the next generation of consoles? Well, currently, that is exactly what is happening. The latest news is that Xbox is offering a 10-year deal with PlayStation. It concerns the availability of Call of Duty on Sony consoles. With this attitude, Microsoft shows its credentials to reassure everyone. But before this proposal, Microsoft was talking about an availability of Call of Duty on PlayStations until the end of 2027. The latter was not accepted, because that would be the period over which Sony plans to release its next console. A period which would also be the niche chosen by Microsoft. Now all that remains is to wait…
Pokémon breaks out the competition, ahead of God of War
At the end of the year, two games are at the top of the rankings of the best new sales level. On the one hand, PlayStation received God of War Ragnarok on November 9th. Barely 5 days later, the game has already sold some 5.1 million copies. Then Nintendo welcomes Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the ninth generation of Pikachu and his pals. It was last November 18 and we are talking about 10 million sales in just 3 days. The numerous bugs and technical problems clearly did not hinder sales. Especially since the few reimbursements observed are made on a case-by-case basis and are unlikely to have a significant impact on sales. With such figures, the game even risks becoming the best-selling opus in the saga. For now, this place is occupied by the Red and Blue version.
Geralt de Riv is coming to the latest consoles
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is getting a facelift on next-gen consoles starting December 14. The update will be free for all owners of the game. On the evening of November 23, CD Projekt presented gameplay of this new version. It’s a big taff shot by the Polish studio with 4K textures and models, improvements related to Dualsense, improved gameplay, a lighter interface, etc. In addition, new content inspired by the Netflix series was also revealed. On PC, the game will also benefit from an Ultra+ configuration and will support DLSS and AMD FSR. In addition, two graphics modes will be available. Players will be able to experience Geralt’s universe in 4K ray tracing quality with 30 FPS. Or, they will evolve in a performance mode to reach 60 frames per second.
