FIFA 21 Will Launch for Next-Gen in December

Publisher Electronic Arts announced that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X version of FIFA 21 will be available on Dec. 4. This next-gen version will take advantage of the new hardware, offering faster load times, better lighting and rendering, “off-ball humanization,” and other visual enhancements. Those who purchase FIFA 21 on current-gen will be able to upgrade to the next-gen version within the same family for free (PS4 > PS5 and Xbox One > Xbox Series X) thanks to “Dual Entitlement.”

Super Mario 3D All-Stars Will Allow for Inverted Camera Settings in November

After the community expressed its disappointment with Super Mario 3D All-Stars‘ lack of camera customization options, Nintendo has finally announced that a patch will be implemented. Specifically, all three games in the package — Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy will offer inverted controls following a patch on Nov. 16. The original GameCube version of Super Mario Sunshine featured inverted controls, but this was omitted with the release of Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Thankfully, this will be fixed soon.

PS5 Sold Faster in First 12 Hours Than PS4 in the U.S. — Not Everyone Will Be Able to Find One

Today, an interview between Reuters and Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan was published, featuring some interesting information about PlayStation 5. Most importantly, Ryan said Sony pre-sold as many PS5 units in the first 12 hours of availability as it did in the first 12 weeks of preorder availability for PlayStation 4 in the United States — meaning the new console is selling faster than its predecessor. Ryan also said, “It may well be that not everybody who wants to buy a PS5 on launch day will be able to find one,” but he ensures that Sony is “working as hard as we ever can” to ensure shopper demand is met this holiday.
