*We originally posted this story with an incorrect image. The image we included is NOT the confirmed design of the PlayStation 5.

Moot: News Picks - The Daily Moot (10/8/19) image 12

While we knew Sony was working on a next-gen console, and we definitely assumed it would be called the PlayStation 5, it is now confirmed! We also learned a ton of critical details about the PlayStation 5. The most important thing to know is the PlayStation 5 will release Holidays 2020. There are also some major adjustments to the controller and there will be a solid-state drive instead of a normal spinning hard drive. How exciting!

  2. Blizzard Removes Hearthstone Grandmaster for Pro-Hong Kong Message   Yesterday, we told you about Blitzchung. Blitzchung won a Hearthstone tournament recently and used his winner’s interview to speak out in support of Hong Kong’s liberation. Now, Blizzard has removed Blitzchung from Hearthstone Grandmasters and they retracted his prize money. Blizzard claims Blitzchung’s statement broke tournament rules because it damaged their reputation. Now, fans of Blizzard games are protesting the company for what seems like an attack on free speech.

  3. Doom Eternal Delayed until March 2020   id Software and Bethesda Softworks announced on Twitter this morning that Doom Eternal will be delayed until next March. The game was set to release this November, but apparently the developer needs more time to polish it up. Doom Eternal is a follow up to the Doom game that released in 2006. Doom Eternal will launch on Google Stadia, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. It will then become available on the Nintendo Switch at a later date.

  4. The NHS opens a Gaming Addiction Clinic   The NHS, a British health organization, announced today they will open a clinic to treat people aged 13 to 25 for video game addiction. As video games are growing in popularity, is natural that society adapts around it. While many of us have probably had to explain “no I am not addicted to video games because I played for a few hours,” hopefully we can also understand that this is a real problem people deal with. It is nice to see British public health adapting to modern times. Hopefully the rest of the world can follow suit if the program demonstrates some success.

    False alarm, folks! The image we originally included in the story (and have attached to this comment) is NOT confirmed as the design for the PlayStation 5.

    We apologize for sharing a picture without properly fact checking first.

    Thanks to St3v3nsF4m1ly for pointing out our error in the comments.
