about X hours ago from

With about three months to go before E3 2019, Xbox rumours are already heating up. Microsoft has previously confirmed it is working on multiple new Xbox consoles, and now its plans appear to be coming into focus.

There is a lot of information out there about the new Xbox consoles, so we're rounding up all the rumours and speculation into this post to help make sense of the matter. Bear in mind that while the sources for each rumour have proven reliable in the past, everything mentioned here is unconfirmed, and as with all rumours, plans are subject to change. Microsoft's official stance is that it does not comment on rumour and speculation. With that caveat out of the way...

Rumoured for many months already, and discussed at a conceptual level for years, the disc-free Xbox One is said to be codenamed Xbox Maverick. Windows Central reported that this system will actually be called "Xbox One S All-Digital Edition." Pre-orders for the console are said to open in April, with the console then scheduled to go on sale in May around the world.

Destiny 2 Eververse: All The New Cosmetics In Season Of The Drifter


Destiny 2's Jokers Wild content update has arrived, bringing new activities and loot to the game. It also means a new season, which resets all your progress in various events, and introduces a bunch of new cosmetic items you can get from the Eververse store, which you either earn by playing or buy with real money.

This update to the Eververse store sees a few changes. The Prismatic Matrix, where you could deposit Prismatic Facets earned from weekly bounties to get a batch of specific cosmetics, has been phased out. A new set of Drifter-themed engrams called Notorious Engrams now take over for last season's Etched Engrams, as well.

There are a whole lot of new things to grab from the Eververse store. We've run down everything you can earn from engrams or buy from the shop for the season below.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Cut A Spider-Person And A Sequel Could Include More

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Cut A Spider-Person And A Sequel Could Include More

While the world built in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is unlike just about anything comic book movie fans have seen unfold on the big screen, there was a time when the movie was almost even weirder. In fact, it almost included yet another Spider-Person.

Speaking to GameSpot for the digital and Blu-ray release of the film, co-director Rodney Rothman teased the potential of Australian Spider-Man, who would have put a ticking clock on the glitching danger that Peter B. Parker and his fellow Spideys faced. "Australian Spider-Man was there and made a point of saying he had arrived a whole twenty-four hours earlier because he's a whole day ahead," Rothman explained. "And then he glitched to death and turned to a pile of dust in front of everyone and then they were like, 'Oh we have twenty-four hours to live,' because this guy was dead."

Turning into a pile of dust sounds like it was definitely inspired by Avengers: Infinity War, which would have been a truly funny nod to work into Spider-Verse. Then again, it's hard to know how the death of Australian Spider-Man would have fit into the movie, given that Gwen Stacy arrived a week earlier than the rest of the Spider-People. If they could only stay there for 24 hours, she definitely would have been dusted by that point.

The huge success of Sony's Spider-Man spin-off Venom ensured that we will be getting more movies featuring heroes and villains from the Spidey universe. Venom 2 is on the way, but next up will be Morbius. Production on the movie has now started and a first image has been released from the set.

The picture was posted on Twitter by star Jared Leto. It doesn't exactly reveal much, as Leto is largely obscured by a clapperboard. But we can see that he has the long hair and pale skin of Morbius the Living Vampire from Marvel's comic books--check it out below.

EA Is Aware Anthem Is Crashing PS4 Consoles

about X hours ago from

EA has announced it is aware that Anthem is causing certain issues for PS4 consoles. In an effort to fix the problem, the publisher is asking players to submit data reports.

"We are currently in process of gathering information about the PS4 issues so we can determine the root cause," EA wrote in a blog post. If you're playing Anthem on PS4 and the game has seemingly caused your console to crash, EA asks you submit information about which of the PS4 consoles you're using (original, Slim, or Pro), your PSN ID, details about your problem, and whether you reported the crash when your console prompted you to. If you'd rather not, some players--according to Variety--have discovered Sony is offering refunds (pretty much no questions asked) for people who bought Anthem on PS4.

Anthem has had one of the roughest launches of any game in 2019. A VIP demo held mere weeks before the game's release was bug-ridden and caused problems for other EA games. Anthem then released to mediocre reviews, and even though BioWare pushed out several updates--including one that addressed the unpopular tethering system--the retail price of the game soon started dropping on Amazon. One of the updates--a hotfix patch designed to fix problems with Anthem's loot system--even broke the game for a while.
