We Still Don't Know PS5 And Xbox Series X's Prices, But It's Not As Weird As You Think

We Still Don't Know PS5 And Xbox Series X's Prices, But It's Not As Weird As You Think

Next-generation consoles are nearly upon us. Both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 are coming before the end of the year–the new Xbox is now confirmed for November–meaning we’re no more than three months away from having new consoles in our hands. Despite that, we still don’t know exactly when they’re coming and, more notably, how much they’ll cost. But you don’t have to look that far back to see the wait for this information isn’t unprecedented.Nintendo Switch launched on March 3, 2017, but it wasn’t until January 12–less than two months earlier–that Nintendo shared a price or release date. That’s 50 days before launch! It’s wild to think that news came so late in the game, but that didn’t stop the Switch from selling out when pre-orders went live just hours after the date and price were announced (though there were some available at launch). Likewise, Xbox 360’s price wasn’t announced until mid-August, just three months before launch.I’ve seen people continue to express astonishment that such critical details about PS5 or Xbox remain unknown at this late stage. And I get it: Who can forget PS3’s “five-hundred and ninety-nine US dollars” at E3 2006, five months before release? We heard about pricing for PS4 and Xbox One back to back during E3 in June 2013, again, five months before they hit store shelves. While this year may not have seen an E3, we have already gotten events from both Sony and Microsoft that effectively served as substitutes for their usual E3 press conferences, and yet these details remain unknown as of mid-August.Continue Reading at GameSpot

Every TV Show Delayed Or Cut Short By COVID-19

Every TV Show Delayed Or Cut Short By COVID-19

The 2020 TV season has been massively affected by production shutdowns. Here are the shows that were forced to ditch epi Canceled premieres, production hiatuses, and adjusted release schedules have become the norm for the entertainment industry in 2020. We’ve already rounded up every movie that has been postponed because of the pandemic, so now we’re turning our attention from the big screen to the small one. It’s time to take a look at what’s going on on the TV side of the equation.The truth is that virtually every television production, regardless of size, network, or genre, has been affected in some way by the quarantine protocols, so rather than give you a list of, well, every single TV show currently airing, we narrowed the focus. These are shows that either had to truncate their currently airing seasons all together, like most of the Arrowverse or dramas like Empire, or shows that had to hit the pause button while production was already well underway like Disney+’s Falcon And The Winter Soldier. We won’t be going over shows that are now nebulously delayed after season renewals or shows that are traditionally taped live each week–they obviously won’t be coming back for a while.So, with that in mind, here are 29 TV shows that have had to make some major adjustments because of the pandemic. 1. Batwoman (The CW)Batwoman shutdown production for an early finale back in March, losing two episodes of its total original order. Star Ruby Rose then exited the show. 2. Supergirl (The CW) Supergirl shutdown production, moving its finale to Episode 19 rather than Episode 20 of Season 5. 3. The Blacklist (NBC)The Blacklist’s planned 22-episode Season 7 was cut down to 19 episodes. 4. Dynasty (The CW) Dynasty truncated its third season from 22 episodes to 20 episodes. 5. Empire (Fox) Empire’s final season was cut from 20 episodes to 18, forcing the production team to completely reconfigure the series finale. 6. The Flash (The CW) Season 6 of The Flash ended at Episode 19 rather than the planned 22. 7. The Goldbergs (ABC) The last episode of Season 7 was never finished, resulting in an Episode 23 season finale rather than Episode 24. 8. Grey’s Anatomy (ABC) Season 16 of Grey’s Anatomy ended with Episode 21 rather than 25. 9. Legacies (The CW) Legacies cut its second season off at Episode 16 for a “spring finale.”…

KOTOR 3: Why It Should Happen Now

KOTOR 3: Why It Should Happen Now

<em>Welcome to Star Wars Week, where we’re celebrating all things from that galaxy far, far away. From retrospectives on old favorites to explainers on timely topics to Face-Offs between beloved characters and beyond, Star Wars Week features articles, videos, slideshows and more on the beloved franchise.</em> Poem Studios knew they were on borrowed time. Their fan-made passion project, ‘Project Apeiron’ intended to be a fully rebooted reinterpretation of 2003’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It was to be programmed on Unreal Engine 4 — with a rebeautified set of planets, blasters and lightsabers, offering fans and newcomers alike the immortal cycle of Darth Revan on modern machinery. There is no way to feel secure while appropriating licensed Star Wars characters, but the hope was that Disney might turn a blind eye out of respect the sheer fanaticism of the still-vibrant KOTOR community; mercy for a fandom that hasn’t received a mainline sequel since the release of Knights of the Old Republic 2, in 2004. [widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=every-ign-star-wars-game-review&captions=true”] “We all knew that a [project] shut down was a possibility. When I first interviewed to join the studio, Taylor Trotter [founder of Poem Studios] made it very clear to me that this could all be obliterated tomorrow,” says 22-year old Chris Ringenberg, who worked as a gameplay programmer on Apeiron. “The best-case scenario is that we get to finish this project, but the potential for shuttering was always on our mind.” Ringenberg’s worst fears came true in October of 2018. Apeiron was already in development for two years when Disney sent a cease-and-desist to the studio. The letter applauded Poem for its passion, but also laid out a stark rebuke to the ongoing development of a fan-led KOTOR revival. Disney ordered the development team to immediately cease work on Apeiron, destroy all the assets and code they had already generated for the game, and deter from using any and all Star Wars properties going forward. The progress that Poem already made — the foamy tides of Manaan, the pearly cityscapes of Taris, and the candlelit treetops of Kashyyk — would all need to be flushed down the drain. The dream was dead. The community pushed back on Disney’s ruling, asserting that Apeiron could be categorized as a full-conversion mod, and therefore would be safe under fair use legislation. But that claim was on rickety ground. While the project did use…
