Two new Cyberpunk 2077 trailers showcase Night City and the gangs who live there

The big news out of today's Cyberpunk 2077 online showcase was the reveal of the PC system requirements. If you haven't seen them yet, you'll be happy (and maybe surprised) to hear that they're really quite light. An SSD is recommended (although at this point you should have one in your rig anyway, they really do make a huge difference) but otherwise, a middle-of-the-road gaming system should be able to handle it quite nicely.

Frustrated gamers are battling Ebay scalpers with fake $50,000 bids and RTX 3080 'paper editions'

The first Ebay listing I see when I search "RTX 3080" is priced at $1,199.99. So far, 26 people have clicked Buy It Now on that card, paying hundreds of dollars more than Nvidia's MSRP for a GPU that won't ship out until early October. The listing has 140 1-star reviews. The second listing, though, is only $699.99—because the seller isn't actually trying to sell it. It's called "Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Render - Do Not Buy (Read Description)," and the description lays out exactly why it's there:

"This listing is for an 8.5x11" rendering of the NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3080. This is being listed at the RTX 3080 MSRP in order to bring attention to the issue of scalping. This is not a real GPU and will not work in your PC.

Empire of Sin gets release date and pre-order trailer

Between its gorgeous art deco design style, its almost mythical but nevertheless real-world historical setting, and its decision to focus on strategy and management rather than pure action mechanics, Empire of Sin represents a refreshing change of pace from recent gangster games.
