Key Takeaways

Dead Space Remake Director

Eric Baptizat, renowned for directing Assassin's Creed Valhalla, now leads the Dead Space Remake at EA Motive, transitioning from Ubisoft. His track record sparks optimism among Dead Space fans, given his success with Valhalla. Personally, I found Valhalla exceptional, sinking 160 hours into it on my PlayStation 5 and earning the Platinum Trophy. Baptizat's skill in crafting immersive experiences fuels excitement for what he'll achieve with Dead Space Remake.

PS5 M.2 SSD Support

PlayStation 5 gears up to support M.2 SSDs, boasting lightning-fast speeds with a recommended minimum read speed of 5.5 gigabytes per second. While meeting these specs doesn't guarantee compatibility, this move will enable players to expand the default 1TB storage. Xbox follows suit with expansion cards, reflecting the industry's trend towards providing more storage options. As game files swell, the need for extra space grows, a relief for gamers like me who juggle installations for new ones, especially in pursuit of Platinum Trophies.

Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters

The Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters for FF 1, 2, and 3 are out on Steam, iOS, and Android since July 28, 2021, bringing updated graphics and gameplay. PlayStation fans eagerly await their release for trophy-earning potential. Square Enix plans to continue with FF 4, 5, and 6. While font options drew some criticism, PC players are already modding them. Eric Baptizat leading Dead Space Remake ignites excitement, while PS5's M.2 SSD support addresses storage needs. These developments reflect the gaming industry's evolution, combining nostalgia with modern enhancements for an enriched gaming experience.
