Sony has provided a new sales update for the PlayStation 4, and things are going quite well, it seems. The console has sold 91.6 million units worldwide as of December 31, which includes 5.6 million units sold during the holiday season (which Sony tracks as November 19-December 31).

Additionally, Sony announced that Spider-Man for PS4 has sold 9 million copies physically and digitally as of November 25. The Insomniac-developed PS4 exclusive launched in September, selling 3.3 million copies in its first three days to set a new sales record.

Another big figure was 50.7 million, which is the number of PS4 games (physical and digital) that were sold during the holiday season. This boosts the total number of PS4 games sold globally since the console launched in 2013 up to 876 million across physical and digital as of December 31.

Avengers: Endgame's Dave Bautista Joins Dune Reboot Movie Cast

There's still no word on when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will start filming, but that's not stopping Dave Bautista from signing on for more work. The actor, who plays Drax in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has joined the cast of the Dune reboot from director Denis Villeneuve.

As reported by Variety, the former WWE superstar will star alongside Timothee Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson in the film. Villeneuve, who last directed Blade Runner 2049, is co-writing the script with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts.

Villeneuve's reboot will be the second time a Dune film has hit the big screen. Adapted from the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert, the first film was released in 1984 from writer and director David Lynch. Prior to that, Alejandro Jodorowsky attempted to adapt the book to film, but the project was ultimately abandoned. The 2013 documentary Jodorowsky's Dune revisited the writer and director's failed venture and examined the impact it had on science fiction franchises like Alien and Star Wars.

Rockstar Games has announced job listings for new, unannounced titles, which the company has described as "next-generation" projects. Whatever the creators of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto V have planned next, it looks like we won't see it until the release of whatever comes after Xbox One and PS4.

First noticed by Gear Nuke, Rockstar India is hiring for technical artist positions, including a senior environment artist, to join a team tasked with creating "next-generation worlds for some exciting upcoming projects." The India branch is also hiring a vehicle artist, and the description sounds like it could be for something like GTA 6. Also, Rockstar New York is looking for a MoCap tools developer to help create and build "upon the next generation of MoCap tools and pipeline," as well as a technical face developer to "help research and develop new technology for future titles." Rockstar Toronto is also hiring for projects that use next-generation technology.

HBO CEO Has Seen All Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episodes Twice, Says He's In Awe

about X hours ago from

The first footage of Game of Thrones Season 8 was released during the Golden Globes ceremony this week, and now we're getting even more insight into the final season. HBO chief executive officer Richard Plepler told Variety that the final six episodes are like six movies. He said he's seen the final episodes two times already, and though the CG work wasn't finished, he was still blown away.

"It's a spectacle. The guys have done six movies," he said. "The reaction I had while watching them was, 'I'm watching a movie,'" he said.

Plepler said showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff knew the bar was already high, and they took things even further. "They've exceeded the bar. I've watched them twice without any CGI and I'm in awe. Everybody's in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production."

Future Man Season 2: 9 Things You Need To Know, Straight From The Cast and Producers

Future Man Season 2: 9 Things You Need To Know, Straight From The Cast and Producers


Get ready to head backā€¦ to the future. The second season of Future Man is almost here and the Hulu original series is somehow more bizarre and absurd than ever before. After seemingly saving the world at the end of Season 1, Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson), Tiger (Eliza Coupe), and Wolf (Derek Wilson) are headed forward in the timeline, only to realize something got very screwed up along the way.

To find out what, exactly, got screwed up, GameSpot and a few other outlets got the chance to speak with the cast and producers of the series at New York Comic-Con. Thankfully, they were very revealing when it came to revealing what you should expect in the new episodes. Nothing's off the table it seems, from more horrible degradation of Futturman to a musical number hidden somewhere in the new season.

If you loved the first season of Future Man, chances are you're going to enjoy what the team behind the series has come up with for Season 2. Don't expect to be jumping around in the timeline like Season 1, though. Instead, the majority of Season 2 is set in this insane new future, leaving Josh, Tiger, and Wolf completely out of their element. One of them does find it oddly comforting, though.

The new season of Future Man premieres Friday, January 11 on Hulu.

about X hours ago from

It just got more expensive to visit Disneyland in California. As it regularly does, Disney recently raised ticket prices, and this time the hike comes not long before the opening of the new Star Wars area, Galaxy's Edge, this summer.

According to The Los Angeles Times, the cheapest ticket to get into Disneyland now costs more than $100, while daily parking prices are increasing from $20 to $25. In 2016, Disneyland launched a demand-based pricing scheme that offers lower prices on days that are less in demand and higher prices for popular days like weekends and holidays.

A one-day, one-park ticket for Disneyland or California Adventure for a "low-demand" day is now $104, which is up from $97. The same ticket for a regular-demand day is jumping from $117 to $129. And the daily ticket price of a high-demand day is now $149, and that's up from $135.
