The Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta period has been announced for Playstation 4. Treyarch confirmed rumours about the beta coming to PS4 on August 19. Now, the developer has confirmed that the Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta will launch on August 19 exclusively for PS4 and end five days later on August 23. There’s no word yet on the beta for Xbox One and PC.

According to Call Of Duty news site Charlie Intel, marketing material has confirmed the beta dates. A flyer was distributed to fans who participated in the Black Ops 3 Zombies Escape Room Challenge at Comic-Con in San Diego. The flyer offered a free 30-day Playstation Plus trial and showed a lot of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 branding. The flyer also showed that the beta would go from August 19 to August 23.

Although Treyarch has confirmed that there will be a Black Ops 3 beta for Xbox One and PC, they haven’t announced any details about when those will be. Treyarch announced its deal with Sony at this year’s E3, saying that the Playstation version of the game would receive updates and DLC before other consoles. It’s a similar deal to what Treyarch used to have with Microsoft and the Xbox, but for whatever reason, they moved on to Sony.

You can get access to the Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta by pre-ordering the game through the Playstation Store, Xbox Live Store, or other participating retail stores (which vary by region). To incentivise eager fans, Treyarch has said each retailer will have a limited number of beta codes, so it’s important to get in early. Those pre-ordering the game at retail will be given a code on their purchase receipt or via email, while those buying digitally won’t need a code as the beta will be included automatically on their console. Information about which editions can be pre-ordered in which region can be found here.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
