Matt Damon Gamer, PlayStation Secures Semi-Conductor Supply, Google Mobile Games Fund | Gaming News






Introduction

Hey everyone, welcome to another edition of the daily gaming news. Here I'll be discussing all the latest goings-on in the gaming industry, from new releases to game announcements and everything in between. So without further ado, let's get started!

PlayStation Secures Semi-Conductor Supply

Sony and PlayStation are very confident that they'll be able to deliver upwards of 22,000,000 PlayStation 5 (units) because they've been able to secure a supply of semi-conductors. How? When? Where? I don't know. But basically they are confident that they can deliver to match the expectations of their investors. Simple as that. That's when they revealed it. They've been able to do it. Because at the moment, there's been a worldwide to semi-conductor shortage and it's affecting sales of all electronic goods, not just PlayStations. It's nice that they've been able to solve things out for themselves.

Google Mobile Games Fund

The next bit of news for today is Google have set up a 30,000,000 dollar fund to help mobile game developers. And if you approach Google, you have a mobile game you want to develop. You can ask them for potential funding, but as always, you have to go in with a nice business plan. It's a venture capitalist, so you have to go in with a nice business plan. You have to show how your game will be different, but there's up to 30,000,000 dollars available for development of said mobile game. And I know that mobile games are not for everyone, but I have a lot of fun playing them on an emulator on my PC. I still use MEMU emulator every single day. It's nice. It's nice that Google are looking at providing funding for developers who need it.

Matt Damon Gamer

And then the last bit of news for today is the latest episode of Hot Ones on YouTube is a longrunning YouTube series where they interview celebrities while they're eating increasingly hotter hot wings. Now, the reason that's relevant to gaming news is Matt Damon actually was the latest guest, and he turned down a lot of money for a Bourne series game because he didn't want it to be a first person shooter. Instead, he wanted it to be more like the game Myst. It's something that he actually spoke about during the episode, which is interesting. It's nice to see more celebrity endorsement of video games, but in his case, he just wasn't interested in even being part of it unless it fit his style of gaming, which I thought was really interesting.

Conclusion

That's all for my roundup of the latest gaming news. What do you think? Are any of these stories big deals in your opinion? Let me know by leaving a comment on the video. And don't forget to check back tomorrow for more exciting gaming news!
