Sony Reveals When PS5 Pre-Orders Will Start

The PlayStation 5 Showcase just announced the highly anticipated pre-order information for the PS5. Sony took to twitter to announce that “PS5 pre-orders will be available starting as early as tomorrow at select retailers.”

This is great news for PlayStation fans, as they will be able to get their hands on the console soon.

Interestingly, the pre-orders for the Xbox Series X and S are scheduled to go live next week, September 22. But PlayStation was also already taking pre-orders for the console on a first-come-first-serve basis, although it was only available for US customers.

Interestingly, recent reports have suggested that PlayStation had to cut down on its production for the PlayStation 5. Even though Sony later confirmed that the reports were not true, it hints at the demand that Sony expects to garner with the PS5.

An industry insider recently revealed that Sony has booked around 60 Delta flights to supply the PlayStation 5 to the US. Usually, such cargo is shipped via the sea route. But given the obvious restrictions, due to the global pandemic, Sony is opting for a faster albeit more expensive option.

Apart from the pre-order information, Sony also revealed some other interesting information regarding the same. Along with other game announcements, God Of War: Ragnarok was also announced for 2021. There were also big announcements made like Devil May Cry 5, Demon Souls and more.

All the major PlayStation announcements have now been made. This puts the ball back in Microsoft’s court. They had the upper hand when they had announced their Series X and S details last week. But Sony’s announcement regarding PS5 will definitely force them to rethink their strategy altogether.

Even though their focus is on Game Pass and xCloud, they still need to focus on console sales. Considering the Xbox One couldn’t match the sales numbers for the PlayStation 4, it is imperative that Microsoft focuses on the sales even more.

Although Microsoft has a seemingly more powerful console, it still doesn’t change the fact that Sony now has the upper hand in terms of price. The Showcase definitely propelled the PS5 ahead of the Series X and has possibly won them the ‘console war’.

‘Warzone’ Season 6: Release date, start time, subway explainer for ‘Call of Duty’ update

'Warzone' Season 6: Release date, start time, subway explainer for 'Call of Duty' update

Season 6 of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” and the accompanying “Warzone” is set to be released early next week for download, and there will be another major map design shift to Verdansk as part of the data package.

Building off Season 5’s introduction of a moving train and opening of the train station, Activision will bring a multistop underground subway into the “Warzone” fray. With that change comes renewed worries about campers and questions about how it will influence the flow of game play.

At the very least, it should provide a refresh to a mode that has now been out for six months.

Here’s an early primer of what we know about the next update to “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare”:

When does Season 6 of ‘Warzone’ release?

Season 6 of “Warzone” will be released for download on Tuesday, Sept. 29. In some areas of the U.S., the update will be out in earliest hours of Wednesday, Sept. 30.

The last full-scale update for “Warzone” came out on Aug. 5.

What time will Season 6 of ‘Warzone’ be available?

Season 6 will likely follow a similar pattern to Season 5 in terms of rollout strategy. The current season was unveiled at 2 a.m. ET on a Wednesday, so Season 6 should be out somewhere between 11 p.m. ET Tuesday and 3 a.m. ET Wednesday.

It’s probably a good idea to start that download before bed Tuesday night so the game is available to play the next day.

What is the ‘Warzone’ subway?

There will be an underground train loop introduced in Season 6 of “Warzone” after Verdansk got an above-ground train in Season 5.

The subway system will have seven stops, labeled A-G, and run near key parts of the map, including the stadium and airport. There are presumably comprehensive stations at each stop that could prove important battle points in their own right.

It’s expected there will be an actual train running through the tunnels and stopping briefly at all seven destinations.

Here’s the cinematic trailer for the Season 6 subway system:

Can you ride the ‘Warzone subway?

From the Season 6 “Warzone” trailer, it seems probable that players can board the subway and ride it around the loop. Operators in the trailer enter an underground train several times in the video.

Full list of ‘Warzone’ underground train stops

The underground Verdansk train will stop at the following locations:

  • Airport
  • Karst River Quarry
  • Stadium
  • Downtown
  • Promenade East
  • Main train station
  • Torsk Bloc

Conor McGregor claims his next fight is against Manny Pacquiao

Conor McGregor claims his next fight is against Manny Pacquiao

Conor McGregor claimed he was set to fight Manny Pacquiao in the Middle East in his next outing.

McGregor, a former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion, sensationally retired in June, but it was hinted earlier this month that the Irishman would return next year.

After a long Twitter rant during which he vented his frustration at a lack of action this year — his only fight has been a win over Donald Cerrone in January — McGregor said he was set for a return to boxing.

McGregor lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in August 2017 and is now set to meet the 41-year-old Pacquiao.

“I’m boxing Manny Pacquiao next in the Middle East,” he wrote. “It will be a true honour to have faced two of the greatest boxers of the modern era, afraid of a fight.”

Pacquiao (62-7-2) fought twice last year, winning the WBA (Super) welterweight title by beating Keith Thurman in July 2019.

Deivi Garcia has one more start to cement Yankees postseason role

Deivi Garcia has one more start to cement Yankees postseason role

Deivi Garcia’s entry to the majors took a step back in his most recent outing, when he gave up six runs in just three innings at Fenway Park.

He’s got one more start Saturday to show the Yankees he’s ready to play an important role in the postseason.

Asked his most important takeaway from that performance, Garcia said it came down to having a game plan on the mound.

“How to put together a plan and understand how important it is to execute certain pitches in certain situations and how to find a way to do that,’’ Garcia said Friday through an interpreter before the Yankees faced the Marlins in The Bronx.

That was certainly an issue against the Red Sox on Sunday in Boston, when manager Aaron Boone questioned the pitch selection with Gary Sanchez behind the plate.

“Just some misses with his fastball,’’ Boone said following the outing of Garcia’s lack of command. “I don’t think he had the same life on his fastball, maybe a tick off. A couple of pitch selections could have mixed a little more.”

Boone was confident Garcia would return to form before the playoffs.

“Just a bump here for him,’’ Boone said. “They’re all things he can correct and do what we’ve seen in his next one. He’s fully equipped to handle these things.”

Unlike his last appearance, Garcia doesn’t figure to pitch to Sanchez against the Marlins because Sanchez caught Friday and Saturday is a day game.

Regardless of who Garcia is pitching to, he’ll hope to avoid the eight hits and two homers he allowed to a bad Red Sox team.

“It’s important to put a good plan in place and go out there and execute the plan, especially in tough moments,’’ Garcia said. “Follow the plan of attack.”

It’s still unclear how the 21-year-old might be used in the playoffs. With Gerrit Cole and Masahiro Tanaka set to start the first two games of the best-of-three wild-card series, the Yankees seem most likely to turn to J.A. Happ, who started Friday’s game against the Marlins in The Bronx.

Even if that’s the case, Garcia figures to play an important role for the staff, either in the wild-card series or beyond, if the Yankees advance.
