PS5 Gets A Release Date – But Cars And Mobile Phones Might Push It Back!
Hideki Yasuda is an analyst from one of the most prestigious and accurate securities firms in Osaka, Japan – Ace Securities, in particular the Economic Research Institute. Yasuda mentions in his recent report on Sony’s financial performance that at the present time the PS5 will come at the end of 2019.
Whilst this report was being released, Murata Manufacturing and TDK expressed concerns that the demand for monolithic ceramic capacitors is so high due to the increasing amount of them being used in the manufacturing of cars and mobile phones, that a shortage may arise and cause complications for the PS5 production process, meaning we may not see a 2019 release.
We’re not out of the woods yet, but Ace Securities rarely puts a foot wrong with their predictions so hold hope that no shortage arises and we may very well see a PS5 by the end of next year!
Valve Launches Twitch Competitor, Takes It Down The Next Day.
Cue the LoLs.
Someone at Valve had an itchy trigger finger over the weekend when news broke that Steam.tv, Valve’s own streaming service to take on twitch and YouTube gaming, went live. Today it seems that it wasn’t meant to.
In a statement to CNET, a Valve rep said an internal test was made publicly accessible by accident whilst they were working on “updating Steam Broadcasting for the Main Event of the International, Dota 2”.
When Steam.tv appeared it was showing the International with no option to watch other games or stream, however it did display the new Steam Chat function.
No word yet as to whether Steam will move forward with an updated release in the near future, or if a release that is similar to twitch or YouTube will even happen, but given the amount of interest it generated from the wider gaming community we’re sure they’ll at least be exploring the idea a lot deeper.
