It does seem that Monster Hunter Rise will launch on the PS5 on January 20, 2023, but hold your breath a little bit because this “official” confirmation comes from a leak from Xbox Germany that has since been removed. The figurative Felyne is now largely out of the bag, though we assume that it was planned to be revealed in some form at The Game Awards:

Original Story: According to a recent report from Insider Gaming, Monster Hunter Rise will arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S as early as January 20, 2023. If the rumor is accurate, confirmation will probably be made at The Game Awards the following week. The article has a fair amount of credibility because it came from The Snitch, Tom Henderson’s website that specializes in insider leaks.

The port will reportedly support 3D Audio and run at “4K60” (4K resolution at 60 frames per second). It seems that Sunbreak will also be getting another addition in the spring of 2023.

In March 2021, Monster Hunter Rise received a successful initial release on the Nintendo Switch, where it went on to sell more than 11 million copies. When the game first came out, our sister site Nintendo Life gave it a 9/10 and stated: “Monster Hunter Rise is a new pinnacle for the franchise, featuring fresh mechanics, terrifying new creatures, and a stunning setting. While the package may be a little intimidating for newcomers, it’s arguably the best place to start if you’re serious about getting into the franchise. The Wirebug, Switch Skills, Palamute, and carefully thought-out monsters shake things up enough to make the game feel fresh for hunters who have previously spent thousands of hours with the series.”

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.
