P.T. is not playable on PlayStation 5

Kojima Productions’ playable teaser for its canceled Silent Hill reboot, horror game P.T., is a precious commodity to many PlayStation 4 owners. After Hideo Kojima’s departure from Konami and Silent Hills’ cancellation, P.T. was removed from Sony’s PlayStation Store. If you didn’t already have it, you were (pretty much) out of luck.

The bad news for prospective PlayStation 5 owners is that your existing download of P.T. cannot be transferred over to Sony’s new console, nor is the game playable through backward compatibility.

PS5 lets you invert the camera controls in games automatically

I’ll never know exactly what it’s like to be left-handed, but I do have an idea, because I’m one of the many gamers — albeit a minority, apparently — who inverts the y-axis. And I’m thrilled to report that at long last, we’re being acknowledged by Sony with the PlayStation 5.

Folks like us loved one specific Xbox 360 option: the ability to have the console automatically tell games that we wanted to play with an inverted y-axis. This let us avoid the hassle of having to flip that switch ourselves in the options of every individual game, making our lives a little easier and letting us get into the action a little more quickly.

Is it safe to shop in person for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X?

The video game industry, like many others, has been impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Major gaming conventions and events were canceled. Video games have been delayed as developers shift to remote working setups. All for good reason: these cancelations, delays, and adjustments have been crucial for ensuring the safety of the people who make and play games.

In November, the pandemic will affect the industry’s new console season, with the launch of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Fans will face an unusual and timely question: Is it safe to shop in person for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X during launch?

Kerbal Space Program 2 delayed again, until fiscal year 2023

Kerbal Space Program 2 is being delayed until Take-Two Interactive’s fiscal year 2023, according to a financial report from the company. Kerbal Space Program is a space flight simulator, where the player must help a tiny, spacefaring culture navigate the stars by helping them create the actual infrastructure and craft necessary to survive.

The original Kerbal Space Program was created by developer Squad, but Kerbal Space Program 2 was announced at Gamescom 2019 as a project by Star Theory Games, under the Private Division label. The game was originally intended to launch in March 2020, but was later delayed to Take-Two’s 2021 fiscal year, which covers April 2020 through March 2021, and then delayed again to fall 2021 due to the coronavirus.

Here’s how players can get old Exotics in Destiny 2: Beyond Light

On the last weekly blog before it launches Destiny 2: Beyond Light, Bungie revealed details on how players will pick up older Exotics after several planets enter the Destiny Content Vault on Tuesday. The studio also previewed some upcoming patch notes, as well as a new Tower terminal for picking up old quests.

The Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive is a new terminal in the Tower, sitting comfortably between the current Vault terminals. Here, players can buy Exotics whose quests will leave the game on Nov. 10. Exotics like Anarchy and Tarrabah currently drop from two raids leaving the game, and Exotics like Rat King primarily come from planets like Titan — also leaving the game with Beyond Light. With these quests gone, the Monument to Lost Lights Exotic Archive will be the way players can backfill their inventories with those weapons.

Best Buy won’t have the PS5 or the Xbox Series X in stores this holiday season

The next generation consoles are almost here, but with the United States, and much of the rest of the world, still in the throws of the COVID-19 pandemic, buying the consoles in person is something some folks might have concerns about. To account for this, Best Buy has announced that it will not be selling the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in its stores this holiday season. Instead the next-gen consoles will only be available online.

According to the company’s announcement on Thursday, both consoles will be available on BestBuy.com to pre-order and purchase, however neither console will be sold at physical stores. This announcement comes the same day that Sony announced that it doesn’t plan to put any PlayStation 5 consoles in physical stores, at least at launch.

Fall Guys’ new update includes big fans and little hammers

Fall Guys is midway through its second season, and developer Mediatonic is adding an update to spice things up. The update is called Fan Big Yeet Little, and it includes a new level (Big Fans) and a new spinning hammer (Lil Yeety) for contestants to dodge.

Big Fans is the biggest addition to the patch, and it tasks players with passing over an abyss with the aid of several comically oversized fans. Players must jump from fan blade to fan blade, all while being jostled by a couple of dozen beans, and dodging obstacles along the path.

You’ll finally be able to watch Tenet at home in December

You’ll finally be able to watch Tenet at home in December

Finally, people confused by Christopher Nolan’s Tenet will have a chance to frame-by-frame their way through it and try to parse out what is actually going on in the time-jumping thriller. And people who never got to see it at all, since it premiered in theaters during a pandemic, when theaters keep opening and closing, will finally be able to experience the confusion for themselves.

Deadline reports that Tenet will arrive on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K, and VOD on Dec. 15. The film’s rollout has been considered a bellwether for an industry constantly in flux, with cinemas worldwide operating under local restrictions, and most major tentpole movies either being delayed or moving to digital-only releases. After shifting Tenet’s planned release date several times, Warner Bros. doggedly stuck with an August theatrical-only release, which reached countries around the world and scattered theaters in the United States, but did not include the usual “limited release” cities of New York and Los Angeles, where theaters are still closed.
