The Daily Moot: Cyberpunk Removed From PS StoreNews Picks
1. Sony Removes Cyberpunk 2077
Sony has officially removed Cyberpunk 2077 from the PlayStation Store. This news comes in response to the many players who have opted to refund the game due to its poor performance on the PlayStation 4. Sony said in their statement, “SIE strives to ensure a high level of customer satisfaction, therefore we will begin to offer a full refund for all gamers who have purchased Cyberpunk 2077 via PlayStation Store [and] will also be removing Cyberpunk 2077 from PlayStation Store until further notice.” There’s no word yet on when the game might return to the PS Store but CD Projekt Red says they are “working hard to bring Cyberpunk 2077 back to PlayStation Store as soon as possible.”
2. Rainbow Six Siege Year One Mode Rainbow Six Siege is celebrating its 5-year anniversary by going retro with the new Legacy Arcade game mode which pays homage to Year One. The mode presents the game exactly how it was in its first season, not just with cosmetics but gameplay as well. Only the 20 original operators are available to play in the mode and they each have their original loadouts. Furthermore, the maps have been reverted to their original appearances. You can check out the trailer for the Legacy Arcade event below.
3. Next-Gen Control Release Date Control will soon be coming to next-gen consoles. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions were originally expected to launch by the end of this year, but Remedy delayed the upgrades saying they wanted “the final quality of the game to be awesome” and required “a bit more time to work on it.” The next-gen versions of control are now set to launch digitally on February 2, with a physical edition arriving one month later on March 2. You can check out the teaser trailer for the upcoming Control Ultimate Edition below.
4. Nvidia Samsung Collaboration Nvidia has struck a new deal with Samsung designed to greatly increase supply of RTX 3000 series GPUs. It’s no secret that Nvidia’s latest graphics cards have experienced a severe supply shortage but now it looks like the company is finally trying to ease that problem. The deal, which is reportedly worth hundreds of millions of dollars, should hopefully mean that the manufacturing bottleneck won’t be nearly as bad in the future. Unfortunately however, it is unlikely that consumers will see the effects of this collaboration anytime soon, which likely means that PC players will still have to wait until at least next year to get their hands on a next-gen GPU.
