There is no shortage of "Pro" style controllers for gamers these days. Asus has decided to throw their hat into the ring with their new Raikiri Pro for the Xbox line of consoles. This new Pro-style controller dubbed the "Raikiri Pro" is officially licensed by Microsoft and sports a 1.3" OLED screen for various functions such as Microphone status, battery life and more. The Raikiri Pro sports "Tri-Connectivity" and it's the first officially licensed xbox controller to do so allowing players to connect to devices via Bluetooth, low-latency 2.4GHz , or USB-C. respectively. This is useful for using the controller on the PC, xbox, smartphone or even a smart TV with Xbox Game Pass. The controller also features a ESS DAC, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a mute button you'd come to expect for an xbox controller. Of course it sports all features you would expect from a "Pro" controller, including remappable buttons, adjusting joystick sensitivity and dead zones, and different trigger...

Google has officially confirmed that Stadia is coming to an end. You can expect it to close January 18th, 2023.

Google plans to issue refunds to anyone who purchased any Stadia hardware through the Google Store alongside games and addons. The refunds will be expected to be issued come mid January. You can check out their Stadia FAQ by visiting this link

From their official blog:

“A few years ago, we also launched a consumer gaming service, Stadia. And while Stadia’s approach to streaming games for consumers was built on a strong technology foundation, it hasn’t gained the traction with users that we expected so we’ve made the difficult decision to begin winding down our Stadia streaming service.” Employees on the Stadia team will be distributed to other parts of the company.

Big Chungus rumored to come to MultiVersus
  • 164
  • 0
Could the meme be coming to MultiVersus? Warner Bros filed a trademark for the Bugs Bunny meme recently. Many seem to think that it is for MultiVersus, but at this time it hasn't been confirmed.

As reported by VGR's Andrew Marmo, the company filed a trademark claim for the image of an inflated Bugs Bunny under the name Big Chungus.



Fans of the multiplayer game are convinced this implies the meme is coming sometime in the future. Big Chungus also appeared in Looney Tunes World of Mayhem and was a playable character in the mobile game.



So does this mean we'll see him in MultiVersus? We'll have to wait to find out.

Super Smash Bros Creator Masahiro Sakurai Announces YouTube Channel

The Super Smash Bros creator revealed on Twitter that he is now a YouTuber. The channel name is “Masahiro Sakurai on Creating Games.”

Sakurai explains he won't be streaming any games on the channel, but will be discussing topics like game dev, and what makes video games fun.

“I’m often asked to give lectures at game development schools, and while I think it’s a great idea, such presentations can only reach so many people.” He continues, “I’ve also realized that developer conferences like GDC or CEDEC, while good for technical concepts aren’t always the best forums for discussing design theory.”
He mentioned keeping his videos short in between 2-5 minutes long, and the channel is his personal project so he will not be making money off of this. He'll have both Japanese and English versions of his videos on the YouTube channel. He also will show off Super Smash Bros dev builds and design documents he wrote himself. He has to run the idea by Nintendo before he can...

Sony reveals Dualsense Edge - Their take on a pro-style controller for PS5.
  • 374
  • 4
Sony just unveiled the Dualsense Edge. Sony's take on a pro-style controller akin to Microsoft's Elite Series controllers. The dualsense edge appears to have customizable analog sticks, back paddles and triggers. This is what we know so far:

Ultra-customizable controls: You can make the DualSense Edge wireless controller uniquely yours by remapping or deactivating specific button inputs and fine-tuning your aim by adjusting stick sensitivity and dead zones (the distance your analog stick moves before it’s recognized in a game). In addition, each trigger is adjustable with options to tailor travel distance and dead zones to your preference. For example, you can manually reduce travel distance of the triggers for faster inputs in competitive FPS games or reduce the dead zone for precise throttle control in racing games.

Elon Musk now owns Twitter. The internet is exploding over it.

Elon Musk has finalized his bid to purchase Twitter today and Twitter has accepted his offer. He is now the sole owner of Twitter Inc. Musk has purchased Twitter under the guise of protecting Free Speech. We will have to wait and see what happens going forward but people seem to be torn about this acquisition. Revillution has never been a political website, nor will it ever be, but it does seem people on one particular side of the political aisle are very unhappy about Elon buying Twitter and taking it 'private'. We will just have to wait and see what happens. Could we see the unbanning of certain figures in the future? Could we potentially see new features people have been asking for, such as an edit button? What would you like to see from the social media platform going forward?

What do you think of Elon Musk buying Twitter for 43 Billion in cash?

It would seem that Discord, Apple and Facebook have all accidentally given user data over to hackers who were posing as law enforcement.

Facebook and Apple are said to have handed over basic details such as address, phone number and IP Address where Discord was said to have handed over the internet address history of Discord accounts tied to a specific phone number

Snapchat was also targeted by the hackers but it is unknown if they handed anything over that was requested at this time.

Twitch working on new music deal to end DMCA strikes for streamers.
  • 928

Twitch is currently sorting out a deal with the National Music Publishers’ Association (NMPA) to come to an agreement or licensing deal for streamers so that they are no longer hit with DMCA strikes on their content. So what does this mean for streamers on Twitch if this deal manages to be inked and go through? Well it would appear that streamers will be able to play the music of their choice without the worry of being hit with a copyright strike or DMCA claim within reason. The closure of Mixer last July has caused Twitch's platform to boom in popularity, as a perfect storm of a global pandemic and the closure of Mixer by Microsoft, forced content creators to funnel onto the platform. However, many Mixer streamers often played copyright music on stream using featurees on their bots such as Song Requests which allowed their viewers to request a song of their choice to play in the background of the stream. However, within the past year many streamers now on Twitch have...

The rumor mill is spinning up and with it comes a rumor that Battlefield 2042 is not in the best of shape according to a few insiders. This has stirred rumors that DICE will formally announce a delay on the release of Battlefield 2042. According to popular insider & credible source for leaks the first bit of information came from gaming journalist and insider Jeff Grubb, stating that another game will be announcing a delay later this week. Popular leaker Tom Henderson has stated in a tweet this delay will only be a matter of weeks and not months like people have been speculating.

The tweet in question by Tom Henderson states as much. So it appears EA has also emailed play...

3 classic Grand Theft Auto remasters reportedly being developed by Take-Two
  • 953
  • 3
For years fans of the believed "PS2 Trilogy" of Grand Theft Auto titles have been begging for remakes or remasters of these classics for modern consoles with modern quality of life improvements. Fans have been attempting this on their own for years now but now it seems Take-Two is stepping in and shutting down these fanmade remaster projects which has stirred up questions and discussions that perhaps Take Two/Rockstar Games may be making their own remasters for these games.

It could be that Take Two is just trying to protect their IP's but it seems a bit odd with the timing. It's known that Grand Theft Auto 6 won't be releasing any time soon and it's been nearly 10 years since we've got a new Grand Theft Auto title. It's a bit of a drought for Rockstar to not release anything this long.

A recent re-release from the company was the Mafia: Definitive Edition...

New OLED Nintendo Switch coming Oct 8th, 2021.

Just a short while ago Nintendo revealed the newest model in the Switch family of consoles. This new model supports just a handful of upgrades and quality-of-life improvements. However, many gamers are disappointed that this isn't the rumored "Pro" model they were expecting. Saying that, what exactly is new with this new Switch model? Well, we have you covered.

The new Switch model sports a 7.0" OLED screen, the largest of any current switch model you can purchase. Better audio, now with Stereo. A much improved kickstand that seems to be much more sturdy and reliable than the outgoing switch model. Double the internal storage up from 32GB to 64GB and the inclusion of an ethernet port on the docking station.

Aside from that, it appears there are no other upgrades to this new OLED model Switch. Gamers were hoping for improvements to graphic fidelity and possibly a bump in resolution in dock-mode up to 4K. This doesn't have those improvements, however. Here is a chart of the...

Activision cuts ties with Ghost MW 2019 Voice Actor Jeff Leech after comments resurface.

Activision has apparently severed ties with Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2019 Ghost Voice Actor Jeff Leech for comments he made on one of his livestreams from back in December of 2020 towards a female streamer in his chat. The streamer in question was apparently toxic towards Leech first and Leech simply responded with more toxicity that the community is seeing as sexist & misogynistic according to twitter. These statements apparently go back to 2020.

Activision issued a statement to Call of Duty fan site CharlieIntel with the following about cutting ties with Leech and condemning his remarks:

Sexism has no place in our industry, our games or in society,” Activision says in a new statement. “Activision is no longer working with Jeff Leach. We strongly condemn these remarks. We are committed to delivering a fun and safe experience for all players.”

Activision has not stated what this means for the future of Ghost in the upcoming Modern Warfare 2019 sequel or Leech's...

At PlayStation, we’re constantly looking for new ways to enable players around the world to connect with one another, form new friendships and communities, and share fun experiences and lasting memories.

Sony to continue to support PS3 & PS Vita storefronts
  • 1,056

A few weeks ago, we learned that Sony was aiming to close the storefronts of PS3, PSP and PS Vita which would prevent users who wish to continue to use and purchase games digitally on these platforms the inability to do so. Well, the community cried out pretty loudly about this and it seems that Sony is backtracking on their decision. Well, part of it. Here is what they said in a blog post:

Upon further reflection, however, it’s clear that we made the wrong decision here. So today I’m happy to say that we will be keeping the PlayStation Store operational for PS3 and PS Vita devices. PSP commerce functionality will retire on July 2, 2021 as planned.

When we initially came to the decision to end purchasing support for PS3 and PS Vita, it was born out of a number of factors, including commerce support challenges for older devices and the ability for us to focus more of our resources on newer devices where a majority of our gamers are playing on. We see now that many of you...

Silent Hill has captured the hearts of survival horror fans for years since the original debut back on the original Sony Playstation back in 1999. Over 20 years & several games later, fans are still itching for the latest installment in the beloved franchise, but it seems to have been put on ice, well that is, until now. Rumors of a new Silent Hill or a "Reboot" of the franchise have been circulating since late 2019, early last year, but nothing has ever come of it. That is, until now. A recent interview with Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno earlier today, in which he mentions that The Medium developer has been working on a “horror IP” with “a very famous gaming publisher” for over a year, has led to speculation that the Polish studio is creating a Silent Hill game. To add more fuel to the fire, reputable sources told VideoGamesCrhonicle that Japanese Silent Hill project is something of a departure from past Silent Hill games. To add more validity to...

Creative Producer for Sega, Yosuke Okunari has made a suggestion that the next micro console to be released could in actual fact be a Dreamcast Mini.

During an interview between Okunari and Famitsu magazine regadring the future of mini consoles it was suggested that Sega could be considering a mini version of the 1999 console.

Quoted from Yosuke Okunari "I think for the next one, we may go with a concept close to the Mega Drive Mini," Okunari explains. "If I have to say some names, it could be an SG-1000 Mini or a Dreamcast Mini."

What are your thoughts on a Dreamcast Mini? Would you grab one if these are released? Do you still own an original?
