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...
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...
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 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...
Jim Ryan earlier today has stated that they are going ahead with a partnership with Discord, the popular communication app that was popularized by gamers. Jim Ryan had this to say about Playstation and Discord partnering up with Discord coming to the playstation platform next year.
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. It’s in this spirit that we’re excited to announce a new partnership with Discord, the communication service popularized by gamers and used by more than 140 million people every month around the world.
Together, our teams are already hard at work connecting Discord with your social and gaming experience on PlayStation Network. Our goal is to bring the Discord and PlayStation experiences closer together on console and mobile starting early next year, allowing friends, groups, and communities to...
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...
Hunter Kahn, 20 years old from the USA who bought GameStop shares and made $30,000 after cashing out has spent over $2000 on gaming consoles and more to donate to children's hospitals. What exactly did he buy and donate you may be thinking? Hunter bought and donated six Nintendo Switch Lites, two Nintendo Switches, games, e-shop gift cards screen protectors and cases, all of which were donated to children's hospitals.
Hunter was interviewed by CNN after his good deed to which he told them "kids deserve them because of the situation that they are in."
After buying and donating the consoles to the childrens hospital, Hunter will not be using the rest of his money to pay off his University fee's and will be putting the rest of the money into savings.
What an amazing guy and truly an inspiration especially during these really difficult times!
If you are a gamer, you will be well aware of the announcement from EA! Battlefield 6 has been confirmed by EA to be released this year and they have also promised that there will be more players than ever in this new game. EA have also given a release date of Christmas 2021 and they have also made it clear that they are well ahead of schedule, which means we should definitely be getting Battlefield 6 on the date they announce with no delays, hopefully. Not something you hear much of at the moment so that is great news.
If an announcement and a release date was not enough to excite you, it has also been confirmed that EA will be taking full advantage of the next generation consoles and will be bringing huge battles to life in game with more players than ever before!
Are you looking forward to the release of Battlefield 6? Let us know!
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?

Sony's PS5 conference has just wrapped up and with it we got some game previews and a price & release date for Sony's next generation offerings.
The Playstation 5 will be available on sale starting November 12th for US, Canada, UK and November 19th for the rest of the world. Digital only edition will cost $399 and the full physical edition will be $499. So it looks like Microsoft's Series S will be the cheapest entry into next generation at just $299.
Physical edition: $499
Digital only edition: $399 Available: November 12th, 2020
What are your thoughts on the Playstation 5 reveal? Will you be picking one up at launch?
The XBox Series X and rumored Xbox Series S are set to release later this year. However, nothing was mentioned until now. According to Windows Central, a reputable source for Microsoft related leaks, the Xbox Series S, which is a disc-less, all-digital console will be coming out at $299 while the more powerful, beefier hardware & larger form factor Xbox Series X will be launching at $499. Both consoles are set to go on sale worldwide on November 10th, 2020.
Xbox Series S is $299
Xbox Series X is $499
CPU: 8x Cores @ 3.8 GHz (3.66 GHz w/ SMT) Custom Zen 2 CPU
We know that the release of Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X is now 2 months away with a release for November but it would seem that neither companies are willing to let a price slip at all, cutting it super fine for those who wish to save up ready for the launch.
This seems to be leaving a sour taste in many customers mouths with many worrying that they may not have the funds to purchase the newly released next generation consoles when they release, especially as close to Christmas as their release will be.
It's understandable that both companies would have been holding off on their price announcements due to possibly wanting to undercut the other on a price but with it being so far into 2020 now and a holiday 2020 release guaranteed, it's very much unfair to the customer now at this point.
Are you waiting to hear about a price for either console? How are you feeling about there being no price drop yet?

That's right, if you pre-ordered the upcoming Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1&2 remaster on the PSN or Xbox store you now have access to search for and download the "Warehouse" demo. The demo consists of 1 skater and just the Warehouse level, it's a whooping 5.88GB on xbox one. It looks visually stunning and more importantly, it controls very well, like the games of old on the PS1 and early PS2 days.
We're super excited to get our hands on the full game on September 4th, 2020 with a review to follow shortly after but judging by the 20 minutes we've spent with the demo so far..... 9/10.
