Mere days after Wired's revealing story on Sony's plans for its next console, a new slice of compelling information has emerged. While the story itself broke down system specs and hardware capabilities, today's slice of info via Wired senior correspondent Peter Rubin involves one that many gamers are concerned about: price.

Here's the whole exchange between Ruin and Cerny about the next console's price point, which Rubin revealed on Twitter:

Mortal Kombat 11's Launch Trailer Goes All In On Nostalgia And Techno

Anyone who's seen the (surprisingly solid) 1995 Mortal Kombat film directed by Paul W. S. Anderson probably has its techno-laced theme pounded in their head.  The latest trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, due out next week, weaponizes the nostalgia attached to that ridiculous (and ridiculously catchy) theme song to great effect:

Halo Finds Its Master Chief For Showtime's TV Series

We learned last summer that Showtime would be producing a live-action Halo television series, and while we knew that Master Chief would play an important role, we didn't know until now who would don John-117's iconic green armor.

Showtime announced that Pablo Schreiber (American Gods, Orange is the New Black) was cast as the protagonist in the show based on Microsoft's flagship series. The TV series is set during the timeline of the games, but will introduce new characters as well. Along with this announcement they revealed a new character named Quan Ah being played by Yerin Ha, an Australian actress.

Ultimately this means that despite dancing around this for over ten years, we finally have a look at least one incarnation of Master Chief's face. It could still be obscured in the show, but we can never unsee this.

By pre-ordering Mortal Kombat 11 you can play as one of the most frustrating bosses in the series.

And, of course, the trailer wouldn't be complete without showcasing his brutal fatality (we'll let you see that for yourself). 

Mortal Kombat 11 launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on April 23. For our extended list of confirmed fighters, head here or head over to the game's hub to catch up on exclusive info.

It's been confirmed that the upcoming live-action series adaptation of The Witcher is coming to Netflix later this year.

It will hit during Netflix's Q4 period, which runs from October to December. This gives us a better idea, but we still don't have an exact date of when it hits the streaming platform. According to Variety, Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos says that the show is currently being shot in Hungary.

The Witcher show stars Henry Cavill as Geralt, Freya Allan (The War of the Worlds) as Ciri, and Anya Chalotra (The ABC Murders) as Yennefer.

Fortnite's Next Bonkers Update Introduces Dogfighting

Fortnite's Next Bonkers Update Introduces Dogfighting

Biplanes return to Fortnite this week in Air Royale, a new limited-time, duos-only mode that pits players against each other in an aerial dogfighting arena. Touch the ground? Dead. Fly too high? Finished. Park your plane? Boom. Each plane has three lives, and players will respawn until their plane loses its last life.

Food fighting – well, some form of it – comes to the game in this week's update, too. Deep Fried is a limited-time mode where both teams start on either side of the map, separated by a barrier down the middle. Each team has its own restaurant with a mascot inside. The mode gives teams time to build defenses around their restaurant, and once the barrier comes down, the winner is the team that can eliminate the enemy's mascot.

You can check out all of this week's updates in the patch notes here, including the return of the egg-themed Grenade Launcher skin and a new Infantry Rifle (shown above).
