Toy Story 4 Sneak Peek Coming After Super Bowl

about X hours ago from

The Super Bowl is going to be chock full of ads and movie trailers, but if you stay tuned after the game you'll get an extra treat. Disney Pixar has teased in a short clip that a sneak peek of Toy Story 4 will follow the big game.

The clip features the new characters Ducky and Bunny, who debuted in their own teaser in November. That could signal that the sneak peek will revolve around them, though we'd expect to see at least an appearance from more well-known characters like Woody and Buzz.

Just recently, a separate teaser announced the return of Bo Peep, Woody's love interest who went missing in the third movie. We've also met a new character named Forky, who is exactly what he sounds like: a plastic fork with a make-shift face. Pixar has said that this movie is about the gang discovering how big the world is for a toy.

Smash Bros. Ultimate Is Off To An Incredible Start, Already Hits Huge Milestone

about X hours ago from

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has proven to be a big critical and commercial success for Nintendo since it arrived on Switch last month. Despite launching toward the end of the year, the title was Amazon's best-selling video game of 2018 as well as the fifth best-selling game in the US (not accounting for digital sales), and now it's hit another huge sales milestone.

In its latest earnings report, Nintendo revealed that the mascot fighter has sold more than 12 million copies worldwide, making it the company's third best-selling Switch game to date. According to Nintendo's updated list of best-selling Switch software, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate moved a combined 12.08 million physical and digital copies as of December 31, 2018--a figure that's all the more impressive considering the game had only been available for roughly three weeks by that point.

Ultimate launched for Switch on December 7 and quickly set new sales records for the series. The title has already sold more than twice as many copies as its predecessor, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. At this rate, it's also on track to overtake the series' best-selling entry, Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii, which sits at 13.29 million units--assuming it hasn't already done so, as Nintendo has yet to share Ultimate's January sales figures.

PS4 Update 6.50 Beta Now Live, Invites Going Out; Here's What We Know

about X hours ago from

Members of the PlayStation 4 system software beta program can try out the next iteration of the console's firmware now. Invites have gone out for PS4's 6.50 beta, letting players kick the tires and test the stability of an update that is mostly focused on, what else, stability.

The invite notes that firmware 6.50 "does not include any new major consumer-facing features" but requests the community's help "fine-tuning the performance and stability improvements the update brings." Interested testers can download the beta through a special link, and then provide feedback on a beta forum.

This is similar to the 6.00 update, which despite being a whole number was focused squarely on stability improvements. Sony is being more upfront about that fact this time around though, after functionality in the 6.00 beta was kept a secret known only to testers. That left the eventual roll-out somewhat of a disappointment when it didn't do much at all.

Fortnite Showtime Posters Challenges Now Live, Before DJ Marshmello Concert

Fortnite Showtime Posters Challenges Now Live, Before DJ Marshmello Concert

With DJ Marshmello set to hold a concert in Fortnite very soon, Epic Games has kicked off a mini event that consists of new challenges and rewards. The first segment of this is now live and involves something called Showtime posters; here's how it works.

The first of the Showtime challenges asks you to search a Showtime poster. This simply involves tracking down one of these posters and holding the Use key while standing in front of it. Do that, and you'll net a Marshmello-themed spray for yourself. Two more challenges will open up on February 1, each with a reward of their own; complete all three to net an additional reward.

Until the others unlock, that leaves you to merely track down a showtime poster. It's unclear exactly where these can be found at this point, but they appear to be scattered all around the map. We found one located on the side of the structures just north of Dusty Divot; you can see what you're looking for in the image below.

Ben Affleck Cryptically Confirms That He Won't Star In The Batman

about X hours ago from

Ben Affleck has played Batman in three DC movies to date, but it's safe to say that none of those movies were particularly well received. From the "sad Affleck" meme that did the rounds while he was promoting the critically panned Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice to the commercial failure of Justice League, there has been much speculation that the star will not return to the role again. He has now confirmed this. Sort of.

Following the news that the next Batman movie, titled The Batman, is set to hit theaters in June 2021, Affleck took to Twitter to retweet a story that he would no longer play the role. The original story ran in Deadline carried the headline "Ben Affleck Passes The Torch To Next Generation Of Bruce Wayne." Affleck retweeted this, adding that he was excited for the film, which will be directed by Matt Reeves. Check it out below:

Excited for #TheBatman in Summer 2021 and to see @MattReevesLA vision come to life. https://t.co/GNgyJroMIO

Kingdom Hearts 3 Secret Ending Movie Is Now Available

about X hours ago from

Square Enix has been very protective of Kingdom Hearts 3 spoilers, even holding back some of its special endings for post-launch. That rolling time period has now ended, as Square Enix has announced that its closely guarded "Secret Movie" is now available for those who have fulfilled the requirements.

The Secret Ending is tied to photographing the Lucky Emblems, which are recognizable as Disney's Mickey Mouse logo, hidden throughout the world. Check out our Lucky Emblems guide for details on their locations. The number of Lucky Emblems you need to collect to unlock the Secret Movie is different based on your difficulty level. On easy mode you'll need to get them all, but in the other two modes you can get fewer to unlock them.

This is actually the second post-launch movie added to Kingdom Hearts 3. A special epilogue was also added and is viewable upon finishing the game's main story. Square also patched in a "Memory Archive," a series of short films that reviews the major points of the story so far.
