about X hours ago from

Though it's still freezing outside, Sony's holiday season heated up the competition, selling more than 90 million PS4s as of December 31. In addition to being the fourth best-selling console of all time--currently behind the Wii, PlayStation, and PlayStation 2--Sony has announced that Insomniac Games' Spider-Man has sold 9 million units digitally and physically as of November 25. To shed more light on the rest of the company's stellar holiday season, Sony has released an official list of its top downloads for December 2018.

Leading the pack of PlayStation 4 games is PUBG Corporation's battle royale title PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which launched on December 7. Following that is Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 which has its own battle royale mode, Blackout. In third is Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V, a game that released during the last console generation and is still, ostensibly, making the studio a lot of money.

Moving over to PlayStation VR, it's Beat Games' Beat Saber on top. Second to the lightsaber rhythm game is Owlchemy Labs'Job Simulator, a game that released nearly three years ago. Placing in third is SIE London Studio's PlayStation VR Worlds, a compilation of games Sony released alongside the company's virtual reality headset back in October 2016.

Ubisoft Abandons Steam For Epic Games Store, Starting With The Division 2 PC Release

about X hours ago from

Ubisoft has announced the PC version of The Division 2 will release solely on the Ubisoft Store and Epic Games Store. So, unlike the original The Division, Ubisoft's upcoming third-person shooter is skipping out on releasing on Steam.

This won't be the only Ubisoft title that Epic steals away from Steam either. In a blog post, Epic revealed that it is partnering with Ubisoft "on additional select titles." Those games have not yet been announced, but Epic did tease that information would come out "during the coming year." Epic and Ubisoft's partnership might set a new precedent for major developers picking one PC game store over others, changing the PC gaming landscape to more closely reflect the scramble for first-party exclusives seen on consoles.

Ubisoft previously released the system requirements for the PC version of The Division 2, revealing the different specifications you'll need to run the game at bare minimum, recommended, high, and elite performance. Each performance type requirement is listed below.

WWE Removes Chris Jericho From Intro Video After All Elite Wrestling Signing

Less than one day after announcing its initial roster, All Elite Wrestling is creating some major waves in the world of professional wrestling, even causing some interesting changes within WWE. As GameSpot previously reported, former WWE superstar Chris Jericho signed with AEW, essentially making the new company his United States wrestling home.

Almost immediately, WWE responded by moving the four-time World Champion's biography to the alumni section of its website. The most notable change came a couple hours later, though, when Smackdown Live went on the air. At the beginning of the broadcast, the WWE signature video package played, but Jericho's face was mysteriously absent.

Jericho has appeared in numerous signature videos over the years and was still present when the short introductory clip that proclaims WWE is "then, now, and forever" the night before on Raw. However, as of the January 8 episode of Smackdown, he's been replaced by The Bar members Sheamus and Cesaro. The change was first noted by a Twitter user.

Ubisoft's upcoming open-world action RPG, The Division 2, is coming to PC alongside the PS4 and Xbox One versions, and with its release approaching, the company has revealed the level of hardware you'll need to play it on computer. The PC specs cover a wide range of hardware depending on the type of experience you're shooting for.

At the low end is the Minimum tier, which would have the game running at 1080p and 30 FPS. For that, you'll need either an Intel Core i5-2500K or AMD FX-6350 paired with 8 GB of RAM and either an Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 or AMD Radeon R9 270 with 2 GB of VRAM.

Jumping up to the high end, the Elite tier--4K and 60 FPS--calls for much more expensive components, as you'd expect.
