Persona 5 The Royal Launches on October 31st in Japan, 2020 Elsewhere

persona5theroyalahhhhhAfter months of waiting and slow news drips, Atlus finally dropped the mother lode of Persona 5 The Royal information a few minutes ago. The reveal came at the end of the first day of the (excellent) Persona Super Live 2019 concert in Tokyo. Persona 5 The Royal was officially named one month ago during a brief trailer in which we caught our first look at a new female character. Until today, we were still mostly in the dark about what the game would actually contain.

As Persona 4 Golden did before it, Persona 5 The Royal is going to be an enhanced version on the original, adding in new characters, new areas, and a new part of the school year. The first new character is one we’ve seen before, though we haven’t gotten any information on her until now. Kasumi Yoshizawa is a new student at Shujin Academy and excels as a gymnast. She seems to be driven by her own goals and will eventually join the Phantom Thieves in pursuit of them. Another new character is Takuto Moruki, a school counselor brought in to help students deal with the aftermath of early events in the game. While not playable, Takuto acts as one of the game’s confidants, filling the new role of “The Consultant.” The trailer also teased a human Morgana, making him even more like Persona 4’s Teddie.

0910""In addition to these characters, Atlus is bringing some other new content to Persona 5 The Royal. Notably, there are new places you can visit, such as DARTSLIVE3, where you can hang out with your friends, and Kichijoji, which is supposed to represent Tokyo. The game’s already incredible UI is getting an update, and new menuing features are being added to make checking your status even easier than before. There’s even a new opening and ending theme!

As if I’m not already going ballistic over this reveal, Atlus is dropping even more Persona news tomorrow. Persona Super Live 2019 is a two-day event, the second part of which will be held tomorrow at 6:00 AM EST. During this performance, information will be released regarding Persona 5 S. If you’re up early enough, you can catch the concert either on Niconico or on the official Persona Twitter account. Niconico premium members can tune in starting at 6:00 AM, while everyone else can watch beginning at 6:30 AM. If you’re looking for more news on Persona 5 The Royal, however, you’ll have to wait a little bit. The next bit of information will come out on May 9th. At least it’s not a whole month this time!

Between Persona 5 The Royal and Persona 5 S, I’m ready for the Phantom Thieves to take my heart (and my money)! Persona 5 The Royal launches on PlayStation 4 (with PlayStation 4 Pro support) in Japan on October 31st, while those in North America and Europe will have to hold out until 2020.

Sony Reveals Details About PS5’s CPU, GPU, and Solid State Drive

We’ve known for quite some time now that the next PlayStation is on the way, but today we received an unexpected update. Rather than revealing PlayStation 5 (name unofficial) details during a State of Play video or at E3 (which Sony isn’t attending), architect Mark Cerny decided to spill the beans by inviting Wired to come check out a development kit and learn about its hardware.

Although we don’t know the console’s name or what it will look like, Cerny revealed a surprising amount of detail about its inner workings. For starters, Sony is promising a “true generational shift,” and not merely another stopgap upgrade like the PlayStation 4 Pro. However, it will still be backwards compatible with PlayStation 4 games. 

Their next console will be powered by a CPU that is “based on the third generation of AMD’s Ryzen line and contains eight cores of the company’s new 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture.” Meanwhile, the GPU is a custom variant of Radeon’s Navi family. One of its big upsides is that it will support ray tracing, greatly increasing the realistic types of lighting it can produce.

The AMD chip is also equipped with “a custom unit for 3D audio that Cerny thinks will redefine what sound can do in a videogame.” Cerny claims this will be a massive leap in sound quality, as opposed to the “frustration” of how little PlayStation 4’s audio improved over PlayStation 3’s. Cerny believes Sony’s next console will offer a much more immersive experience.

Sony’s next big reveal is a feature that Cerny calls “the key to the next generation.” Sony’s next console will feature an SSD that has “a raw bandwidth higher than any SSD available for PCs.” Cerny demonstrated its speed by running Insomniac’s Spider-Man game on both a PlayStation 4 and the next-gen dev kit to test load times. Fast traveling took around 15 seconds on PlayStation 4, but less than one second on the new hardware.

Cerny went on to explain that an even bigger benefit is the rate at which worlds can be generated, which he once again put to the test with a PlayStation 4 and the next-gen console side by side. Cerny explained that Spidey’s max swinging speed is capped by the PlayStation 4’s loading capabilities. In other words, if Spidey were to swing any faster, he’d be swinging into a barren, unloaded New York. On the new hardware, the camera zips through the game “like it’s mounted to a fighter jet,” with Cerny periodically pausing to prove that the demo still looks good when stopped. The demo took place on a 4K TV, but Cerny says the new hardware will be compatible with 8K TVs as well.

Sony declined to discuss software, services, and various other features during this meeting. He confirmed that the next console will not launch in 2019, but no true release window was given. Unsurprisingly, Cerny also stopped short of revealing a price tag. Given that it’s not coming this year, Sony still has plenty of time to solidify and unveil all of those details.

Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony All Under Investigation by the UK Government

Last year the government of Germany took Nintendo to court to contest their eShop policies, including the fact that you can’t get a refund after pre-ordering. As it turns out, Germany isn’t the only European government that takes issue with that policy, and Nintendo isn’t the only company drawing the ire of consumer protection agencies.

The United Kingdom’s Competition and Markets Authority has just announced that Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony, the three major console manufacturers, are all under investigation. The CMA wants to make sure that people making online purchases aren’t being taken advantage of by predatory policies like a lack of refunds or auto-renewing payment plans that don’t require authorization.

The CMA has written to all three companies to ask for a summary of their policies. They would also like to hear from consumers who use online services to get their side of the story. Anyone looking to contact the CMA can do so by clicking here. The investigation includes questions like:

  • Are the contract terms unfair? – Do the companies’ terms give them wide discretion to change the quality of the deal, for example, by reducing the number of games included or increasing the price?
  • How easy it is to cancel or obtain a refund? – Are there any factors that make it difficult for people to cancel their contract or get their money back?
  • How fair is the auto-renewal process? – Are customers clearly told that their membership will be rolled over, are they regularly reminded that they are on a roll-over contract before further payments are taken, and is auto-renewal set as the default option?

The CMA has not reached any kind of decision regarding the legality of these online services at this time, but they “could take enforcement action” if their suspicions prove to be correct. Andrea Coscelli, Chief Executive of the CMA, issued the following statement:

“Roll-over contracts are becoming more and more commonplace and its essential that they work well for customers. Our investigation will look into whether the biggest online gaming companies are being fair with their customers when they automatically renew their contracts, and whether people can easily cancel or get a refund. Should we find that the firms aren’t treating people fairly under consumer protection law, we are fully prepared to take action.”
— Andrea Coscelli

It’s likely that Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony will attempt to argue that they are in full compliance of the law unless/until it becomes totally untenable to do so. For instance, Nintendo argued to the German court that because games can be pre-loaded (but not played), players aren’t entitled to the option of a refund.

Sony’s PlayStation Plus Drops Two Free PS4 Games on April 2

PlayStation Plus subscribers are in for a couple of free goodies for the month of April, each pitting your survivability skills to the test in hostile worlds out for your blood. On April 2, endure unending brutality in ancient times through Conan Exiles, as you start with nothing but your bare hands, craft materials and weapons, and fight for your life in an unforgiving, dangerous land. The Surge, on the other hand, will leave you fending for yourself in a dystopian future terrorized by haywire machinery.

These will switch in with March’s pair of free PlayStation Plus games, being Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, the remastered version of a first-person shooter classic, and the acclaimed puzzle title The Witness.

This will mark the second month since Sony made a drastic change to this PS+ feature and pulled PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita support from the free game rotation, and their absence shows. Sony has confirmed last year that they would only feature PlayStation 4 games on this service from this point forward, but while an argument can be made for quality over quantity, gutting the number of free games from the usual six down to two does diminish the overall value of the subscription service. Meanwhile at Microsoft, the Games with Gold program continues on with the usual four free games per month, so here’s to hoping Sony steps up their game.

That aside, are you considering picking up Conan Exiles and The Surge? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!

Kaz Hirai is Officially Retiring from Sony in June

Last March, Kazuo Hirai stepped down as CEO of Sony, a position he had held since before the launch of PlayStation 4. However, his departure from the CEO’s chair wasn’t the end of his Sony tenure. Instead, Hirai transitioned into a new role as chairman of Sony Corporation. A year later, Hirai has now announced his intention to retire in just a few months.

A recent press release from Sony outlined plans for staff changes, including Hirai’s retirement on June 18th. Hirai himself released a statement expressing his faith in Kenichiro Yoshida and thanking employees and investors for their support over the years.

“Since passing the baton of CEO to Yoshida-san last April, as Chairman of Sony, I have had the opportunity to both ensure a smooth transition and provide support to Sony’s management. I am confident that everyone at Sony is fully aligned under Yoshida-san’s strong leadership, and are ready to build an even brighter future for Sony. As such, I have decided to depart from Sony, which has been a part of my life for the past 35 years. I would like to extend my warmest gratitude to all our employees and stakeholders who have supported me throughout this journey.”
— Kazuo Hirai

Even this won’t
truly be the end to his service to Sony, as the same press release notes that he will continue to provide counsel as a Senior Advisor to Sony despite his retirement. This was a request made by Sony’s management team, and Hirai was apparently happy to oblige.

Persona 5 R Revealed as Persona 5: The Royal

Persona fans have been itching for more news on the upcoming Persona 5 R title for a few months now. Despite this thirst for information, Atlus keeps insisting on a slow drip of information and teases which do little more than give us more mystery and yet another date to look forward to. Such was the case yesterday, where, following the new Persona 5 OVA “Stars and Ours,” a new trailer for the game was released. While this short video did give us a title, a look at a new character, and a little hint at the upcoming conflict, it ultimately raised far more questions than answers.

The trailer opens on a city square, one rainy night. Standing in the midst of a crowd, a mysterious girl looks onward at a screen bearing the Phantom Thieves’ logo. She’s wearing the Shujin Academy uniform — the same school that the protagonist and a few of his comrades attend. Responding to a voice asking her “What do you think of the Phantom Thieves?” she replies, “I think helping people is a wonderful thing, but if I had to say, I don’t like them. I don’t think the Phantom Thieves’ methods will make the world a better place or help anyone. In the end, I feel like you can only solve that yourself.”

This trailer is revealed to be for the newly titled Persona 5 The Royal. Aside from the name and the look at the new character, not much else is known. Presumably, The Royal will be a definitive edition of the original game, much in the vein of Persona 4 The Golden, with the additional content focusing on this new character. I’ve seen some talk that she might even be playable, but I personally think this is unlikely, given the translation of her speech. The game’s website also lists it as being an RPG launching for the PlayStation 4, giving a bit more credence to this theory.

In any case, it’s clear that there’s still a lot we don’t know about Persona 5 The Royal. In keeping with their actions thus far, Atlus has promised that more information will be revealed on April 24th at the Persona Super Live concert. What do you think about what we’ve seen so far?

Sony Shoots Down Take-Two Rumors

Yesterday a rumor surfaced suggesting that Sony was interested in buying out Take-Two Interactive. If true, this would be a game-changing move, and Take-Two’s stock jumped around 5% yesterday. However, there was never a solid source on the story beyond “market chatter” commented on by investment firms.

So is there any fire behind the smoke? Take-Two Interactive declined to comment yesterday, but today Sony has stepped forward to squash the rumor. A Sony spokesperson stated, “We do not know where the rumor is coming from, but there is no such plan” in response to Venture Beat’s inquiries. Currently, Take-Two’s stock is down 3.75% after yesterday’s spike.

Devil May Cry 5 Tops the Japanese Charts and Boosts PS4 Sales

The weekly hardware and software sales from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and Capcom is enjoying another strong debut. After taking the number two spot with the Resident Evil 2 remake back in January, Capcom took first this week with Devil May Cry 5. Although the hack and slash adventure managed only about half as many launch sales as the survival-horror remake, it still had a respectable debut with 116,202 sales.

Devil May Cry 5 also helped boost PlayStation 4 sales for the week. Sony’s console seemed just about tapped out when multiple new games couldn’t boost its February sales, but Capcom’s latest did the trick. PlayStation 4 sales jumped by around 14,000 units this week. That said, Nintendo Switch is still in a dominating lead with nearly 70,000 sales to PlayStation 4’s 32,000.

Rumor: Sony is Looking to Buy Take-Two Interactive

As the next generation looms on the horizon, Sony and Microsoft are both doing everything they can to prepare for a strong launch and emerge as the early leader. Microsoft has been buying up small and medium-sized studios left and right, but Sony just might be going for the win all in one move. According to the latest rumblings from industry analysts, Sony is trying to buy out Take-Two Interactive.

Take-Two Interactive’s stock is currently up over 5%, and according to investment firm Wedbush Securities, this is due to Sony being in “advanced board level discussions to acquire Take-Two Interactive in a mostly cash deal.” If true, this would be an absolute bombshell. As the parent company of both 2K Games and Rockstar Games, Take-Two holds some of the most popular video game properties in the world, including Borderlands, Civilization, Grand Theft Auto, and Red Dead, as well as a variety of sports games.

Update: Speaking with Games Industry, Joel Kulina of Wedbush Securities distanced himself from the story, stating that he’s not sure who quoted him as saying that. He speculated that someone acquired a trading note he wrote and asserted that he did not give any phone interviews on the subject. Kulina has no solid source on the matter, and says it’s “purely unconfirmed market speculation.

It’s unclear who originally started this rumor, but the surge in share prices for Take-Two began before Kulina’s note was published, so his note is not responsible for the increase. This “market chatter” may be a contributing factor in the stock surge (as is the upcoming reveal of Borderlands 3), but is there any truth behind it, or is it just wild speculation that managed to take off? Take-Two Interactive has declined to comment.

SEGA Stops Selling Judgment Due to Cocaine Scandal

SEGA recently released Yakuza spin-off Judgment into the wild, but the game’s availability has since been halted. Actor and musician Pierre Taki plays the role of Kyohei Hamura, a prominent character in the game, and he was recently arrested by Japanese police for cocaine use. Japan takes the use of illegal drugs extremely seriously, and SEGA has responded by pulling the game off store shelves and digital storefronts.

So what’s next for Judgment? Will the game simply be dead and buried? And what of its planned worldwide release this June? At this time, SEGA is still weighing their options, and they haven’t officially voiced plans.

It’s possible that SEGA will recast the character, recreate the scenes with the new model and voice, and resume selling the game. They took similar steps when Yakuza 4 HD actor Hiroki Narimiya promptly retired after pictures surfaced allegedly showing him using cocaine. Taki is also slated to voice Olaf in the Japanese release of Frozen 2 (as well as Kingdom Hearts 3), and Disney is currently looking to replace him in that role.

The Division 2 is a 92 GB Download on PS4

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is set to launch on March 15th, but depending on your platform of choice and internet speed, it might be a while before you actually get to enjoy it. Whether you buy the game physically or digitally, you’ll be required to download the initial Title Updates on day one before you can start playing.

Ubisoft has just revealed the install size data for various platforms, and it’s pretty shocking. On PC and Xbox One you’ll need around 48-52 GB of space, which is fairly standard these days. However, if you buy the PlayStation 4 version of the game (digitally or physically) you’ll need between 88 and 92 GB of space for the download and installation process. It’s not clear why there’s such a massive difference between Sony’s console and the other platforms.

Death Stranding’s Development is Slightly Behind Schedule

Ever since his ugly divorce with Konami, Hideo Kojima and his team have been hard at work on Death Stranding. Over the years we’ve seen a handful of baffling (yet intriguing) trailers and a small sampling of actual gameplay, but we still know relatively little about the next project from the creator of Metal Gear.

One of the questions left unanswered is when the game will release. In a recent interview, Kojima himself weighed in, but he didn’t exactly clarify things. Speaking with Japanese publication J-Wave, Kojima indicated that Death Stranding is taking a little longer to develop than originally anticipated.

“Many studios lag behind their planned release date, and
Death Stranding is slightly behind our initial plan, but it is not too far behind.” — Hideo Kojima

So what does this mean for the game’s release date? It’s hard to say, as Kojima has never exactly announced a solid launch window. The closest we’ve seen is a 2016 quote where the game was said to be coming “before the Tokyo Olympic Games,” which kick off on July 24th, 2020. Does that mean Death Stranding isn’t coming until late 2020? Not necessarily. “Before” is a pretty broad window. We don’t know what Kojima Productions’ internal release target is at this time, but Kojima has never been one to sweat deadlines.

Anthem is Reportedly Crashing PlayStation 4 Consoles

BioWare’s Anthem recently launched to lukewarm reviews, but the online loot shooter might have bigger problems on its hands right now. Over the weekend (and continuing today), there have been countless reports from PlayStation 4 players claiming that Anthem is giving them error messages, booting them to the console’s dashboard, and even crashing the console altogether.

It appears players using both the standard and Pro models of the PlayStation 4 have experienced random crashes that act as though the power cord has been unplugged. One player claims that he continued playing after a crash and another crash followed that completely bricked his console. Although far less frequent, there have also been some reports of Xbox consoles crashing as well.

The official PlayStation Support Twitter page is currently flooded with angry players demanding answers and/or refunds. According to Reddit users, there have been mixed results on the refund front. Some claim the process was simple and painless, while others say their requests were rejected. Kotaku reached out to Sony and EA for a comment on the situation, but neither has replied at this time.

Horizon Zero Dawn Tops 10 Million Sales

Yesterday marked the second anniversary of Guerrilla Games releasing Horizon Zero Dawn into the world. The beautiful open world game launched to strong reviews and even stronger sales, and it continued to be a success on PlayStation 4 long after its debut. Despite being exclusive to one platform, Horizon Zero Dawn has gone on to reach a major sales milestone that places it in an upper echelon of popular games.

Hermen Hulst, Managing Director at Guerrilla Games, recently uploaded a PlayStation Blog post discussing the success and development of the game. According to Hulst, Horizon Zero Dawn has sold “well over” 10 million copies. In celebration of this number (and the two year anniversary), Hulst went on to highlight some lesser-known details about the game’s development.

Vita is Now Officially Dead

Two weeks ago, we reported that Sony was planning to discontinue PlayStation Vita in Japan. Production had already halted in Europe and the Americas, but Japan was still churning out the handheld, albeit at a much slower pace. When Sony gave a similar notice for PlayStation 3’s discontinuation, they waited another two months before pulling the trigger, but not so for Vita.

The only two models still in production at the time of that warning were the
PCH-2000 ZA11 (PS Vita Black) and PCH-2000 ZA23 (PS Vita Aqua Blue) models. However, the pages for both now state that shipments have ended. This is the official end of PlayStation Vita. A few more units will be sold here and there as stores clear out the last of their product, but Sony will not be manufacturing any more new Vita units.

Starting March 5th, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and The Witness will be available for subscribers to download. Both of these games are fantastic in their own right and deserve a look if you’re interested.

Of particular note with this iteration of the lineup is that PlayStation Plus will stop offering PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita games from here on. The current PlayStation Plus games for PlayStation 4 are available for download until March 4th, while the games for PlayStation 3 and Vita are available until March 8th. Any PlayStation 3 and Vita games downloaded prior to this date through the service will still remain available to you, as long as you maintain an active subscription.
