On the menu of the Daily this June 16, we will start with a general excitement around GTA 6 because of a mysterious update at Rockstar. We will continue with the arrival of a strange tool on PS5, and rumors about a Pro controller for the Sony console. We are ending with video game statistics in the United States… The Daily, let’s go!
GTA 6: when a bug sows doubt…
This June 15, the whole web gathered around a potential announcement related to GTA 6. Social networks were particularly shaken, with the hashtag Grand Theft Auto VI in Top Trend, because of a strange update on developer Rockstar Games’ site. For almost 5 hours, the site displayed a totally black wallpaper, and it was not a loading error. Obviously, looking at the code, you could very easily tell that this was a deliberate decision. Rockstar wanted to display this black background all this time. You should know that Rockstar never announces like everyone else. With Red Dead Redemption 2, the developers had just put a red banner on their Twitter. According to GTA specialists, the announcement of GTA V was made in the same way, via an update to the site which directly displayed the logo of the game. This explains the enthusiasm of the community. However, nothing has been announced, citing more of a bug than a real publicity stunt. For the moment, Rockstar has not spoken.
PlayStation 5: A Pro controller in preparation and a video editor? =
Sony is said to be working on a Pro controller for the PS5, the equivalent of the Elite controller at Xbox. This is the insider and journalist Tom Henderson who says so on the TryHardGuide site. Like its competitor, it would have paddles on the back, adding easy-to-access keys that allow you to activate commands without taking your thumbs off the sticks. The other big novelty would be the possibility of completely removing the sticks to be able to replace them in the event of Stick Drift, a problem that affects many Elite controllers at Microsoft… Among the new features, we can also mention a system allowing you to block the triggers, the famous Trigger Stop. The code name of the controller would be Hunt, and imagine that we should hear about it very soon… Then, know that the tool which allows you to edit your videos on PS5, has been updated with the target , social networks. This tool is called Sharefactory Studio and now hosts BITS, a new tab, which allows you to add effects to your videos. It offers, for example, confetti, penciling, audio effects, in order to customize your extracts.
Video games are not going well in the US!
Gaming is an incredibly strong industry and generates an incredible turnover, but sometimes there is stagnation, even dizzying drops. This is what gaming is going through on the other side of the Atlantic, as analyst Matt Piscatella reports. In May 2022, spending on games, accessories and hardware fell by 19%, which is gigantic since February 2020 with the pandemic. Only subscriptions to online subscriptions recorded an increase in turnover. On the other hand, hardware sales fell by 11% compared to last year, a strong period for the launch of consoles. The big drop in revenue is also felt on the mobile side with a 23% drop in spending by players on Google Play. At Apple, on the other hand, we are depreciating, with a drop of only 2.6%.
