Key Takeaways

Steam Deck Aerith CPU

Valve's upcoming handheld console, the Steam Deck, is set to revolutionize PC gaming with its powerful AMD custom chip, nicknamed "Aerith" after the character from Final Fantasy 7. Designed for efficiency and performance, the device starts with 64 GB of storage, expandable via micro SD cards to 256 or 512 GB using NVME SSD technology for rapid load times. Promising up to eight hours of battery life during gameplay and even longer when idle, the Steam Deck also features a docked mode similar to the Nintendo Switch for an enhanced gaming experience on larger screens. Developers can influence battery efficiency by setting frame rate caps, balancing game performance with power consumption.

FIFA Games Contract Extension

Electronic Arts (EA) has secured a ten-year extension with FIFA to continue their successful partnership on the iconic FIFA game series. Despite initial rumors about a possible increase in licensing fees and a change in the game's name, the terms have stabilized, and it's business as usual. This extension affirms FIFA's trust in EA's capability to produce high-quality soccer gaming experiences, allowing EA to maintain the use of the FIFA name and branding. Fans of the series can look forward to a decade of new and exciting developments in the franchise.

Elder Scrolls 6 Exclusivity

Phil Spencer of Xbox has confirmed that the much-awaited Elder Scrolls 6 will be exclusive to Xbox consoles and PC. This decision, aimed at protecting Xbox's intellectual properties, marks a shift as the Elder Scrolls series was previously available on multiple platforms, including PlayStation. Despite Spencer's general support for cross-platform play, he emphasized the importance of exclusivity in certain scenarios. Although initially exclusive, the possibility of Elder Scrolls 6 later arriving on PlayStation remains, given the series' history like Skyrim's broad platform release. Fans are keenly watching for more updates as the release date nears, speculating about the game's future availability across different gaming systems.
