Double Discounts are back for PS Plus members in this week’s brand new PlayStation Store sale.

Although attention is firmly focussed on the upcoming PlayStation 5 launch, the trusty PS4 still has plenty to give. The latest PSN sale is offering discounts on an eclectic range of titles, and there are double discounts available for PS Plus subscribers.

Big hitters like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Borderlands 3 are all discounted, but let’s highlight a few deeper cuts for the discerning video game enthusiast.

Asobo Studio has had an excellent couple of years. Microsoft Flight Simulator is deservedly receiving acclaim from all quarters, and it’s hard to believe the same studio released A Plague Tale: Innocence only last year. It’s an excellent stealth survival horror game that provides thrills, chills, and a torrent of rats.

Also impressive is Erica, an FMV-based game from Flavourworks that tells a compelling story and features another sublime score from composer Austin Wintory.

On a lighter note, the oft-overlooked Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered also comes recommended. It’s funny, charming, true to the spirit of the movies, and an action-packed romp to boot.

The PSN Double Discounts sale runs in Europe until September 30, 2020. At the time of writing, we don’t have confirmation of it coming to other regions, but we’ll update this story if the situation changes. Here are some more recommendations.

In a further obfuscation of the reasons to buy a PS5 on launch day, Sony reveals first-party exclusive Spider-Man: Miles Morales will also release on PS4.

In a further obfuscation of the reasons to buy a PS5 on launch day, Sony reveals first-party exclusive Spider-Man: Miles Morales will also release on PS4.

The upgrade path between the current generation and the next one has never been more confusing. Developers have been offering various different degrees of “free upgrade” for games that span the generation, for one thing. And between them, Sony and Microsoft have been doing their best to obfuscate the reason to buy their latest and greatest hardware.

The latest confusing fuel on the fire is that PlayStation 5 “launch exclusive” Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be available on both PS5 and PS4.

That’s obviously good news for the majority of us, who won’t rush out and buy a new console on launch day. (We might have to wait until they release a PS5 Slim that looks less stupid and fits under your TV better, thanks.)

It’s tricky, isn’t it? You might be planning to get a PS5 in Europe on November 19, but the PS4 version of Spider-Man: Miles Morales – the closest thing to an exciting launch exclusive of the next console generation – will be available for a whole week earlier for everyone not in those PS5 “early launch” locations, where the console launches on November 12, 2020.

In a blog post, Sony says: “We know that some of you may transition to PS5 at different times, which it was why it was important to us to release the latest title in the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe on both consoles.”

The standard edition of Spider-Man: Miles Morales will set you back $49.99 whichever console you buy it for, so that’s no indicator, ether.

You’ll be pleased to hear that there is one motivator for grabbing the game on PS5: The Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition will include a next-generation remaster of the original PS4 game, Marvel’s Spider-Man, which we liked very much.

It’s not free, though. The Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition will set you back $69.99, an extra 20 bucks over the price of the base game.

Is everybody clear on why they should buy a PS5 on launch day? Good. Neither are we.

Here’s everything we know so far about Final Fantasy XVI, announced tonight during the PS5 showcase event.

Here’s everything we know so far about Final Fantasy XVI, announced tonight during the PS5 showcase event.

Yes, yes, the big news from the PlayStation 5 Showcase event was the console’s price and release date. That was the thing we all watched for and, eventually, Sony did deliver.

A far bigger surprise, however, was how the stream started. We were all secretly expecting more GTA V remaster footage, but what we got instead was a group of floppy-haired lads with big weapons and face tattoos, sitting around a campfire. Which was interesting.

Then the lads got on Chocobos, and we got excited. And then there were summon monsters. We were on the edge of our seats.

Then there was some waffle about crystals and we switched off for a bit, but it turns out, it was Final Fantasy XVI!

We don’t know a whole lot about Final Fantasy XVI yet, but here’s what we do know:

And that’s about it. For something that we won’t hear any more about until 2021 – which could mean it releases as late as 2022 or 2023 – there was a lot of content in the Final Fantasy XVI trailer, at least.

There’s a slight niggle in the back of my mind, after the hyper-modernity of Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy VII Remake, that Final Fantasy XVI looks a little old hat. But there’s a long time to be proven wrong on that score.

Electronic Arts has finally said goodbye to the ‘Origin’ branding of its Steam-competitor service and with it part of its history as it repositions for the coming generation. In its place, you can say hello to the mercifully named ‘EA Desktop app’.

The 2011-launched storefront was always quite unfortunately named. EA, which has a penchant for shutting down studios, disbanded Origin Systems in 2004 after cancelling numerous projects in previous years. Origin Systems was a genre pioneer responsible notably for the Ultima and Wing Commander series.

EA senior vice president Michael Blank said in an interview with GamesBeat: “It was less about the Origin name and more about how we are on a journey to offer players choice in how they choose to play,” adding that “perpetuating a variety of different brands” isn’t the right move for EA or its players.

This reflects how EA are now consolidating their branding around their own publisher name. The EA Desktop app joins the ‘EA Play’ subscription service in this, itself a rebranding of the EA Access and Origin Access subscription game services.

Such rebrands have become an increasingly common sight, particularly as we’ve seen the gaming subscription service arms race hot up. Amazon rebranded its Twitch Prime membership service as Prime Gaming just this week.

This rebranding notably coincides with the announcement that EA Play access is soon to be included with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate/PC subscription.

The new app promises a redesigned UI, and cross-play or cross-progression and generational play on every game. This is an expansion on Origin’s cross-platform ambitions that introduced mobile integration.

Four new NES and Super NES video games are coming to the Nintendo Switch Online library later this month.

Four new NES and Super NES video games are coming to the Nintendo Switch Online library later this month.

Coming to the Super NES lineup is Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest, the excellent 1995 platformer from Rare. It’s joined by Jaleco’s 1993 beat ’em up The Peace Keepers and, most excitingly, Mario’s Super Picross, which has only ever been released in Japan.

Getting our hands on previously unreleased games is always exciting, but even more so when it’s a Picross title. To help new players, Nintendo has issued an introductory video to demonstrate the basics. The format is pixel picking puzzling perfection, so if you like it, do check out Jupiter’s marvellous Picross S series.

Finally, Natsume sci-fit shooter S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team joins the NES range. We, erm, much prefer the European name, Action in New York.

It’s a good time for all things retro on Nintendo Switch. The original Super NES Super Mario All-Stars was added to Switch Online earlier this month, and Super Mario 3D All-Stars is arriving on Friday.

Fall Guys has only been out a month and a bit, and already, we’re midway through its first season. The second (magical) season is due later in the year, but for now, we’ll have to make do with the first mid-season update.

What’s in it? Well, there are remixes of the gauntlet levels for starters, which should make things exciting.

But there are two headline items in the Fall Guys mid-season update that HumanAdmin, Oliver (and RobotAdmin, BeanBot) have been teasing on social media for weeks.

Big Yeetus is a big hammer. A very big hammer. A comically big hammer. It swings and throws (yeets, if you will) beans across the level. That sounds like it might be a bad thing, but legend has it, you can use the mighty force of Big Yeetus to propel yourself across the level…

Quite why someone would want to cheat in Fall Guys is beyond us, but people do. Players have been messing with the game’s code to (for the most part) float above levels, avoiding the obstacles and pitfalls in the process.

After an attempt to silo the bad apples onto a server together, which didn’t solve the problem, Mediatonic has implemented Easy Anti-Cheat for Fall Guys.

It’s a shame that Big Yeetus couldn’t be used to deal with the cheaters ceremonially, but however they deal with it, getting rid of them is a win for Mediatonic and the Fall Guys community.
