According to Videocardz, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 was reportedly going to be offered in two flavors, a 6 GB and a 12 GB model, but based on new information, it looks like the 6 GB model may not get to see the light of day, at least that is what’s rumored right now. The 12 GB variant on the other hand will be coming to market around February though we might see an announcement at CES 2021.

Coming to the specifications, the brand new Amper...

Nintendo Collabs With Starlight To Roll Out Hospital-Safe Consoles Across America – Nintendo Life

You may have thought the Nintendo Switch was the ultimate portable console, but you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Nintendo’s Starlight Gaming Station – not a new console, per se, but a special version of the Switch designed for hospitals and healthcare centres – comes equipped with 25 games, and can be rolled around to different rooms.

The Gaming Station, which is the latest collaboration between Nintendo and Starlight, was announced last year at the Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital located in Tacoma, Washington. The same hospital was the first to receive the console, which comes in four designs (Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong) and was designed specifically to be easy to disinfect and clean. The 25 games pre-loaded onto the Gaming Station include The Legend of Zelda: Breath of ...

KFC just launched a gaming console with a built-in chicken warmer | GamesRadar+

Watch out, PS5 and Xbox Series X, the KFC gaming console is real. It’s called the KFConsole, it’s essentially a VR-ready high-end gaming PC, and it comes with a built-in chicken warmer. Boom, checkmate! Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

Back in June, just after the PS5 reveal, KFC released a ridiculous trailer for the KFConsole, but everyone just figured they were joking. Turns out, they were dead serious. KFC, the chicken place, has teamed up with Cooler Master and launched a gaming console capable of 4K and 240FPS. The joint press release doesn’t mention a price or release date, but I’ve reached out for clarification and will update this article if I hear back.

This Mother-Daugther Duo Created An Mobile Gaming App Designed To Empower Black Girls

According to the International Gamers Developers Association, less than 4% of game designers in the industry are Black. For one mother, it was important to expose her daughter to games that would make her feel empowered and build self-confidence–so she decided to create her own for young Black girls to feel represented.

Yvonne Oatley is the founder of the mobile gaming app, Frobelles. She created the game with her daughter, Alyssa, who helps designs the characters and elements for the game. “My daughter and girls like her should be able to find games with characters that they can relate to,” Oatley tells BLACK ENTERPRISE through email...

How the COVID-19 relief bill could change the future of game livestreaming in the U.S.

How the COVID-19 relief bill could change the future of game livestreaming in the U.S.

BY  on 

U.S. livestreamers may see major changes to their business model as a result of legislation in Congress’s latest COVID-19 relief bill.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, which passed late Monday, contains several measures that are meant to serve as relief to Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as issuing a second stimulus check.

However, an amendment introduced today that included unemployment extensions also drew upon recent legislation from Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC). His proposals would create a small-claims board for copyright issues under U.S...

Video gaming can benefit mental health, find Oxford academics | Games | The Guardian

Playing video games can be good for your mental health, a study from Oxford University has suggested, following a breakthrough collaboration in which academics at the university worked with actual gameplay data for the first time.

The study, which focused on players of Nintendo’s springtime craze Animal Crossing, as well as EA’s shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, found that people who played more games tended to report greater “wellbeing”, casting further doubt on reports that video gaming can harm mental health.

Crucially, the study was one of the first to be done using actual play-time data...

Your Sims can play Cyberpunk 2077 right now, even if you can’t

Let’s face it: your Sims in The Sims 4 probably have a better life than you do. Maybe they occasionally wet their pants and fall asleep face-down on the sidewalk, but typically they’ve got bigger houses, nicer furniture, more fashionable clothing, and more opportunities for WooHoo than the average flesh and blood person.

But when it comes to PC games, we’ve got them beat. Your sims are stuck with generic computer games like Blicblock, Road Rival, and Incredible Sports, which all sound terrible. It looks like they’re having fun when they play, but that’s only because they don’t know the coolest PC games are out here in our dimension.

Until now. The Better Computer Games mod gives your Sims some genuinely good games, plus a sweet PC for them to play on...

PS5 Console Breaks Completely Due To Storage Glitch | Screen Rant

The unthinkable has happened for unsuspecting YouTuber ACG, as his PlayStation 5 review unit has unexpectedly broken completely due to a bizarre storage glitch, leaving only a heavy, white-and-black brick where a next-gen gaming machine once existed. With launch day bringing the first consumer shipments of Sony consoles to players’ doors in select November 12 launch countries, this is every early PS5 adopter’s worst nightmare come true, and it could be a very ill omen.

Despite being the hottest (hopefully not literally) item of the Holiday 2020 season, the lead-up to PS5’s first launch wave tomorrow has not been a completely smooth one. A notorious next-gen pre-order fiasco amid the COVID-19 pandemic was the result of stunted supply lines, shortages, and customers’ inability to pick up a...

The dawn of a new generation: PS5 is almost here – PlayStation.Blog

What a year. I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for cheering us on and keeping us honest. I know I speak for all of Sony Interactive Entertainment when I say that you are at the very center of everything we make and do here. 

We never wavered in our vision for delivering a truly next-generation console that was built to excite both gamers and developers. We also knew that it would be nearly impossible for gamers and press to experience next-generation features like the DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback, or our immersive 3D Audio, in a socially-distanced world.

But starting tonight in some regions, players will begin turning on their PlayStation 5 consoles for the very first time and getting their first taste of these innovative features...

Sony confirms the PS5 won’t support SSD storage expansion at launch – The Verge

Sony says its PlayStation 5 can load virtual worlds far faster than ever before, thanks to one of the fastest solid-state drives ever made — but it’s also not a particularly big drive. Sony has confirmed to The Verge that you won’t be able to expand that blazing-fast SSD storage on day one.

While the PS5 features a dedicated internal slot that can theoretically fit standard stick-shaped M.2 SSDs and an easy way to access it, the slot will apparently be disabled out of the box. “[T]his is reserved for a future update,” Sony tells The Verge.

If you’ve been paying close attention to PS5 news, this won’t be a big surprise. PlayStation hardware architect Mark Cerny spent several minutes talking up the SSD storage expansion feature as part of his technical preview back in March, bu...
