Despite Its Broken State, Cyberpunk 2077 Sold Nearly 14 Million Copies in 2020
Despite Cyberpunk 2077‘s issues at launch, the game has sold highly respectably, reaching 13.7 million copies sold by the end of 2020. As you’ll recall, the game launched in December 2020, so it managed to reach this milestone in less than a month.

The company is planning to release next-gen versions of both games later this year.

PlayStation Plus Video Pass in Testing Phase in Poland
After being leaked on the PlayStation website, Sony has confirmed the existence of PlayStation Plus Video Pass. Though, it might not be what you’re expecting. Sony Interactive Entertainment Global Services VP Nick Maguire told Spider’s Web (as translated by VGC) the service has launched in Poland and is in its testing phase. It’s unclear whether it will launch in other territories, but it will likely depend on its performance during its testing phase now. In Poland, it presently grants PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 users access to more than 20 Sony films and television shows.
