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...

Zombies shown off even if it's brief (probably towards the end of the reveal as a 'one more thing' type deal.

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.

Popular online asian video game retailer has listed the pre-order for the upcoming Playstation 5 hardware at an astronomical price. According to the pre-order page, the price of the upcoming console is going to be a staggering $699.99 USD. A $700 console in 2020? We're pretty sure it's just a placeholder, but what if the console does indeed launch at that? Sony got backlash for the PS3 being $599 back in 2006. Now if they release the PS5 at $699, I don't see them succeeding this upcoming generation. Yes there is an all-digital edition that could be significantly cheaper and more affordable, but not everyone is ready for the all-digital age. What are your thoughts? Are you willing to drop $700 on the Playstation 5 with a disc drive?
It's also important to note that the all-digital model is also listed at $699.99 USD, which makes no sense. We're pretty certain the model without a disc drive will be...

It appears that Call of Duty 2020 has changed it's title yet again. It seems Activision has changed the name from Call of DUty: Black Ops Cold War to simply just Call of Duty: Black Ops. This comes after a leak from PS4patches.com shows that Call of Duty 2020's alpha was leaked on there and the codename for the CoD 2020 title was listed as simply "The Red Door" some data mining have discovered a new logo/graphic for this year's Call of Duty and it's showing it to simply be "Call of Duty: Black Ops" This would fit in line with a previous leak we covered of this being a reboot of the series. It was stated earlier that much like Modern Warfare 2019, this year's game is a reboot of the Call of Duty Black Ops series by Treyarch. Since Treyarch has taken over development from Sledgehammer Games & Raven on this year's project, with both SHG and Raven taking up supporting roles on the title now, it would make perfect sense that this year's Call of Duty title is simply known as Call of...
