And before we get ahead of ourselves, while the PS5 will support NVMe drives as expandable storage, neither of these drives will be compatible with Sony's new console. They do not reach the performance levels required, so don't pick up one now thinking you'll be able to give yourself a storage boost from day one. Instead, you'll need to wait for the new NVMe drives to be released or for Sony to announce a list of compatible hardware. Would be nice if they got round to announcing PS5 pre-order info first, though. Maybe tomorrow? … [Read more...] about This Western Digital 500GB NVMe SSD is down to £70

Alas, as you may have seen from my most recent update to our jumbo SSD deals hub, there’s sadly no equivalent deal for those after a 500GB in the UK right now. Instead, the 500GB SN550 is currently sitting at £62 at Amazon UK, which isn’t bad looking back at its historic prices that have tended to hover around the £70 mark ever since the middle of April, but it was only a couple of weeks ago that it dipped to a much more attractive £57. … [Read more...] about Our favourite 500GB WD Blue SSD is down to $55 today

Despite its unplanned outing, Series S has met with a pretty warm reception this week - and small wonder. It's an attractive little machine that offers compelling value - and harks back to an earlier age of games consoles, both in its price (the same launch price as PlayStation 2 and the first Xbox) and its tidy, toylike form factor. It's surprisingly full-featured, too, sharing the fast storage, ray tracing hardware and next-gen CPU tech of Series X, aimed at delivering visuals at lower resolutions (and with much greater power efficiency). This week, we got to see some decent footage of games supposedly running on Series S, too - including Gears 5 at 120fps. … [Read more...] about Xbox Series S: the right product at the right time?
“The overarching plot itself is intriguing, if ultimately predictable. While the twins take a very long time to figure out that the made up fairy-tale characters in the stories their mother wrote are one-to-one representations of them and the townspeople, I still enjoyed their portrayal of the silly, specific games you play when you’re a kid. It’s all stuff you recognise if you have siblings. For example, one time I got very upset because I was playing imaginary fishing with my brothers and my older brother stole my imaginary fish.
