PlayStation can delete content from your PS5

On the Daily Show: The ZEvent 2022 partnership choice is controversial, PlayStation will withdraw access to certain movies you’ve still purchased, and Blizzard defends Diablo Immortal. The Diary is on.

PlayStation will remove purchased movies from your library!

We learned, in an article published by PlayStation on its German and Austrian site, that as of August 31, all movies and series produced by Studio Canal will purely and simply disappear from the consoles for gamers in Germany and Austria, due to the evolution of license agreements with content providers. We’re talking about 300 pieces of content here that will leave the PlayStation, even though you bought it. In March 2021, PlayStation began its withdrawal from the VOD business by announcing that as of August 31, 2021, the service will no longer offer the purchase and rental of movies and series through the Store. We were assured that users would keep the purchased content, but obviously that will not be the case… This announcement once again raises the question: do we really own what we buy in digital format? To meditate…

The Z Event 2022 has chosen its association, but the decision is controversial

The ZEvent is the charity event organized every year by Zerator and Dach with the aim of collecting donations for an organization. The Twitter community went wild when the list of participants was revealed. Some have just noticed the absence of their favorite streamer, like Squeezie or Inoxtag. But the tweets put a coin in the machine the next day, this time attacking the association chosen to receive this year’s donations: the Good Planet Foundation. It works for ecology and climate trying to create awareness while awakening the desire to act concretely for our planet and its inhabitants. On paper it’s fine, but some Internet users have criticized this choice, accusing Good Planet of greenwashing for its financing by BNP Paribas, EDF or TotalEnergies. As a reminder, greenwashing is a marketing technique that consists of hiding behind the ecology argument to give yourself a good image that would actually be far from reality. The foundation immediately responded to the accusations, stating that it wanted to work with as many actors as possible from all walks of life and not remain “between convinced” on the question of ecology in order to convince the large groups. The 2022 edition will take place from September 8 to 11 in Montpellier and the solidarity marathon will take place over fifty hours.

Blizzard defends Diablo Immortal

June 2 came out immortal devil, the latest hack and slash experience from Blizzard, designed for mobile phones and that has finally landed on PC as well. However, the business model has pissed off many players. The game is free to play, but you have the option to reach into your wallet to unlock gems to spend in dungeons and other increasingly powerful rewards. And the mechanics are not trivial since according to certain tests it would take no less than 100,000 dollars to improve your character with the best pieces of equipment. But according to Mike Ybarra, the big boss at Blizzard, there’s no use complaining! The proof, the vast majority of gamers don’t spend any money on Diablo Immortal, with over 110,000 positive reviews on the App Store. Despite all the controversy, Diablo Immortal has already earned more than $49 million since its launch, according to MobileGamer, indicating that Blizzard’s latest game would gross more than $1 million per day.
