Sony PlayStation 5 price, launch date leaked in Amazon France listing; check details

Published

on

Sony recently let us all have the first official look at the Sony PlayStation 5 design and the two variants. The event even saw Sony drop a few game titles that will be exclusive to the PS5. However, Sony did not reveal two of the most-awaited details that console-gaming fans had been waiting for – The ‘When?’ and the ‘How much?’.

However, a new temporary listing spotted in the Amazon France website hints at the pricing details and release date of the Sony PlayStation 5. The listing was quickly spotted by Twitter user Ben Geskins who took a screenshot of the page before it was unsurprisingly taken down later. If the post details are accurate, we could see the Sony PS5 console launch on November 20, 2020, in Europe. Dates around the same timeframe can be expected for the US and Japan as well. The leaked data goes hand-in-hand with the expected Holiday 2020 launch date for the console.

Sony PlayStation 5 price

Talking about the leaked pricing, the screenshot mentions a price of 499 Euros for the standard Sony PlayStation 5 with a disk drive. Meanwhile, the Digital-only edition of the Sony PS5 will cost 399 Euros as per the listing. These figures translate to a rough price of $560 (about Rs 42677.88) and $460 (about Rs 35056.83) respectively. However, it is noteworthy that France implements a 20 percent sales tax, without which the price could come down by about $10 for both models.

It still remains to be seen how accurate these pricing details are, which are obviously not confirmed to be true yet. However, given the pricing of the Sony PlayStation 4, the new pricing seems to be fairly accurate. While it is on the higher side for a console, we must take into account the many changes, upgrades as well as the switch to SSD storage.

Far Cry 6 Pre-Order Guide: Release Date, Bonuses, Editions, And More

Published

While we won’t get a new Far Cry game this year, we won’t have to wait too long into next year to get our hands on Far Cry 6. Ubisoft has announced that Far Cry 6 will release on February 18, 2021 on PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia (that’s a lot of platforms, we know). In typical Ubisoft fashion, numerous editions will be available to purchase, and pre-order listings are already starting to pop up. If you already know you’re down to jump into another zany open-world first-person shooter, you can snag some cool bonuses with your pre-order, too.

Far Cry 6 is set in the present day in the fictional country of Yara, a tropical paradise that has been “frozen in time,” largely due to the country’s tyrannical leader Anton Castillo (played by Breaking Bad actor Giancarlo Esposito). As the hero of the story, you’ll step into the shoes of Dani Rojas, who helps form a guerilla faction to oust Castillo from power.

While next-gen consoles will already be out by the time Far Cry 6 releases, it’s worth noting that you’ll be able to buy one copy of Far Cry 6 to play on PS4/PS5 and Xbox One/Series X. So if you aren’t planning on upgrading to a next-gen console right away, you’ll still be able to enjoy Far Cry 6 on PS5 and Xbox Series X whenever you do decide to upgrade.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Has Fishing, And It’s Tied To An Important New Part Of The Game

Published

By

As part of Ubisoft Forward, the developer shared a long list of new details about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla regarding the combat, how you can recruit cats, and that you’ll be able to switch between male and female Eivor at any point in the game.

Another detail confirmed during the presentation was that Valhalla will have a fishing mechanic–and it’s tied into another new system for the game. In Valhalla, your health does not automatically regenerate over time, so you will need to find ways to replenish it. One way is to catch and consume fish.

Nice!

Given that Valhalla is set in 873 CE, the game does not feature actual fishing rods. So you will simply cast a line with your hand and try to catch a fish that way. Once you have a fish on the line, you’ll need to mash the A button to bring it in. You must control the direction of the fish and also the tension of your line to be able to successfully land the fish.

Far Cry 6 Dev Explains The New Setting Of Yara, And How Political Revolution Is Core To The Story

Published

By

In the reveal trailer for Far Cry 6, the main antagonist, Yara president Anton Castillo, explains the chaotic nature of power in governing society to his teenage son Diego. His son is poised to take over when the time comes, but for now, Anton wants his son to understand his point of view. Using a hand grenade as a metaphor, the elder Castillo states that, “Our country is like this grenade, except it has two basic parts: the people, and you–and you must clutch them nice and tight. Or we all go boom.”

Far Cry 6 is a game about politics and how radically different views inevitably lead to conflict. Set during an uprising in the country of Yara, which takes stylistic and historical inspiration from the island of Cuba, you’ll join the rebel force made up of citizens to overthrow Anton Castillo and his regime. His ultimate goal is to bring the country out of its period of stagnation and into a supposed new age of prosperity, even if it means oppressing and enslaving the country’s citizens to do it. Since Far Cry 3, the franchise has enjoyed putting its villains front and center, giving them plenty of time to explain their philosophies in elaborate detail. They’re larger than life figures whose presence is evident throughout the jungles, caves, and forests in the open-world settings–and Far Cry 6 is no different.

The new game coming from Ubisoft Toronto leans more heavily into the dynamic of revolution, and how Yara’s citizens rise up to free themselves instead of waiting for an outside savior to do it for them. Far Cry 6’s story is about combating fascism, and you are playing as a member of the anti-fascist movement. Speaking with Far Cry 6 narrative director Navid Khavari, he explained the backbone of Far Cry 6’s plot, and how the game’s central character, Dani Rojas, fits in.
