The biggest gaming news for June 23, 2022

You’ve made it through another work week and I’ve got another news roundup to get you off to a good start into the weekend. Our main story today involves A Plague Tale: Requiem, as publisher Focus Home Entertainment finally announced a release date during a special reveal event.

Other stories in today’s roundup include Sony’s announcement that it will eventually release NTSC versions of PS1 games for those stuck with the awful PAL versions, and that the PlayStation news subscription service is fueling rumors of a Red Dead Redemption remaster in the works. Read on for more details.

A Plague Tale: Requiem opens on October 18

It was announced quite some time ago that A Plague Tale: Requiem would release sometime in 2022, and publisher Focus Home Entertainment really kept us waiting for a release date. In a special showcase that gave us an extended demo of the game, it was finally announced that the game will launch on October 18 later this year for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X. I know what I’m playing this spooky season.

PS Plus Premium announces plans for NTSC options in Europe, Asia and more

While Sony’s launch of the new PlayStation Plus subscription has been seen as generally positive, the company has come in for a lot of criticism for apparently forcing users outside of the US. However, Sony has now announced that NTSC options are in the works and will eventually be rolled out worldwide, though it has refrained from providing a date.

Red Dead Redemption could be the only PS3 game for a limited time on PS Plus Premium

Continuing on the PlayStation Plus theme, fans have been digging through the service’s library of PS3 games and have noticed something particularly odd. All of the included games are there to stand apart from Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare, both of which will be removed on October 17. While this might be nothing, some fans are taking it as the first sign that Rockstar is working on a remaster. It’s probably just wishful thinking, but you never know.

Square Enix wants to make “story-focused” NFTs

We now have a couple of crypto-related stories for you, as Square Enix goes ahead with its plans to create its own set of NFTs, despite the wishes of almost all of its fans. We don’t know what these NFTs will look like, but Square Enix wants them to be “story-focused,” which is likely an attempt to make them seem more valuable than they really are. Square Enix also revealed plans to make blockchain games based on Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, though it admitted it’s too early to do so at this point.

Crypto Crash Means Cheap GPUs Are Back

In more positive crypto news, you may have noticed that cryptocurrency prices have crashed. As a result, crypto miners are starting to go out of business and ditching all of their GPUs. Since they are no longer in high demand, GPU prices seem to be falling steadily, so much so that you may soon be able to pick one up for a relatively normal price. However, it’s probably best that you don’t buy any second-hand.
