Key Takeaways


In a surprising development, Volition Games, the creators of the Saints Row series, has been closed down. As a subsidiary of the Embracer Group, the decision was made to redistribute the talent across different teams within the group. This raises questions about the future of the Saints Row series. Have you ever played a Saints Row game?

The news comes as a shock, especially considering it's only two months after Volition celebrated its 30th anniversary. NME reported that the company had been shut down and its staff reassigned to other Embracer Group teams. The move leaves fans wondering whether there will be any future instalments in the Saints Row series. Volition has been a key player in the gaming industry for over three decades, and it's disheartening to see them shut down.


In other news, PlayStation has unveiled the free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers for September 2023. The line-up includes the Saints Row Reboot, Black Desert Online - Traveler Edition, and Generation Zero. Additionally, starting from September, the cost of PlayStation Plus will be increasing worldwide. Are you a PlayStation Plus subscriber?

The announcement came from the official PlayStation blog, detailing the games that will be available for free to PlayStation Plus members. However, this good news is tempered by the announcement that the subscription cost for PlayStation Plus will be increasing across all regions. The move has caused some controversy, though VGC reports that Sony's shares have increased following the news. With the new pricing structure, it remains to be seen how the PlayStation community will react and adapt.


Lastly, PlayStation has announced a major PC sale for games on Steam and the Epic Games Store. The PlayStation Publisher PC Sale will see discounts of between 25-75% on PlayStation PC games until September 7, 2023. Additionally, PlayStation aims to make at least half of their game library available on PC by 2025. However, any PlayStation published games will still maintain exclusivity on the PlayStation console for at least one year. Do you prefer gaming on console or PC?

The sale, detailed on Steam, includes a variety of PlayStation games now available on PC. VGC also reports on the sale, highlighting PlayStation's broader strategy to expand its PC gaming library. This is part of an effort to reach a wider audience and capitalize on the growing popularity of PC gaming. Despite this, PlayStation maintains a commitment to its console players by ensuring that PlayStation published games remain exclusive to their consoles for at least one year. This is an important consideration as it balances the need to expand their audience while maintaining loyalty with their existing console base.
