iPhone 6 gets leaked by China Telecom

China Telecom, one of the major Chinese carriers posted a picture of the iPhone 6 on Weibo earlier. Leaks usually come from industry insiders or sources “close to the matter” so it’s a bit strange when you see a leak coming from one of the manufacturer’s partners. Sure, we all know about the upcoming flagship, but technically speaking Apple will only officially announce the device next month so the carrier definitely wasn’t supposed to put iPhone 6 pictures on the internet so soon. China Telecom has since removed the image, but the damage is done and the photo was already shared by pretty much all the major outlets by now. On the other hand, maybe that was point of the leak as little publicity before the grand unveiling couldn’t hurt, right?

In any case, China Telecom didn’t reveal a whole lot of details about the smartphone so we’re still not sure what to expect yet. However, leaks have certainly been plentiful and we can at least make a few assumptions in regards to the device’s specs. The iPhone 6 will reportedly come in two variants – one featuring a 4.7-inch panel while the second will pack a 5.5-inch display. Details about the latter are a bit scarce, but the former is said to feature an Apple A8 64-bit dual-core processor running at 2 GHz. Some other specs should include 2GB of RAM, 8MP primary camera with optical image stabilization, 1810 mAh battery and 16/32/64/128 GB internal storage options without microSD support. Design-wise, the iPhone 6 is said to be more or less similar to its predecessor so we shouldn’t expect any major changes there.

Word on the street is that Apple will be hosting a media event on September 9th in order to unveil the iPhone 6, which means that we’ll find out soon enough if these specs are the real deal.

Want more classic Metal Gear Solid remakes on PS5? You’ll need to speak Konami’s language—dollar bills—to express your desire.

“Regarding remakes of previous games in the series other than Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, we will listen to player demand and consider accordingly,” a Konami official told IGN.

Konami explained that “we chose Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater because it depicts the birth of Big Boss (Naked Snake), which is the starting point of the Metal Gear series.” Fans wishing it would last forever contributed.

Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, yes? Maybe you’ll buy another disc to show Konami you’ll pay again?

Sony Accused of Abusing Industry Dominance

The Romanian Competition Council is investigating Sony for abusing its console gaming market dominance. How exactly? The RCC says Sony sells video games exclusively through the PlayStation Store and blocks competing distributors from accessing activation codes.

“These practices would have reduced the purchasing options for PlayStation-compatible video games, leading to higher prices for video games on this type of console,” the RCC’s press release (in Romanian) states on ResetEra. These practices discourage Romanian studios from making PlayStation-compatible games.

The RCC is serious, too, having inspected Sony’s European headquarters to find out what happened. The press release states that “1.3 million console video game users” and “127 video game development studios” would be affected by Sony’s anti-competitive practices.

We’re not lawyers, but we believe digital game codes can’t be bought from other retailers, preventing price competition. Sony allowed the practice until a few years ago, so it’s interesting that it’s back.

After the COVID-19 supply collapse, Sony CEO Jim Ryan is optimistic about PS5 sales. The Sony executive anticipates the PS5, the best-selling console for months, will sell 108 million units.

That’s difficult stuff considering Sony needs to sell 70 million more PS5s. Since supply has increased, consoles are selling like hotcakes in major countries, suggesting the firm is above 40 million.

Ryan stated in a recent games business briefing webcast and Q&A (thanks, TweakTown):

“The 70 million, I think, is the existing PlayStation 4 user base, and while we would hope to convert a large number of those people, we will definitely target and definitely be successful in bringing large numbers of gamers who did not own a PlayStation 4, and in many instances, who have never owned a PlayStation at all.”

Mr. Ryan’s numbers—should we focus on the 108 part?
