SUBSCRIBE to our Google News feed, Facebook page or Telegram channel to get these updates quickly!

 

Meet Your Maker

Meet Your Maker is a building game of brutal expression and conquest. Unleash your inner evil genius in co-op or single-player to build the ultimate fortress of devious deathtraps, or take on those built by others in a high-stakes heist to steal resources essential for your survival.

You are the Custodian of the Chimera, a living experiment created as a last resort to save life on Earth. Enter a battle of skill and wits for the only remaining resource that matters and the key to your Chimera’s evolution: pure genetic material.

Mine the darkest corners of your imagination to build and fortify deadly fortresses known as Outposts to extract and guard your Genmat. Infiltrate and survive other players’ Outposts to steal more. Adapt, upgrade, and evolve… or die.

The world’s deadliest toolbox is at your fingertips. Combine a huge array of blocks, traps and guards to build a fortress that’s devious, cunning, and utterly without mercy. Enjoy complete control over your creation, modifying traps and recording custom patrol paths for guards, then share your Outpost and watch others try to survive it. Reap rewards from those who die, learn from those who live, and never lose progress by being raided.

Put your will to the test raiding other players’ Outposts. Rely on your instinct, intellect, and reflexes in a do-or-die heist to steal the materials you need to fuel your next build. Choose the right loadout for each unique challenge, then get in, grab the Genmat and make it out alive mastering every Outpost that stands in your way.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Combine creativity and build with an ally or join forces to raid as a team of two. Use the replay system to watch Raiders challenge your Outposts. Grow your reputation with accolades left by others to reward your ingenuity. Easily find your friends and favorite Builders to play their Outposts at any time.

 

Meet Your Maker : Sector 1 Arsenal Pack!

Meet Your Maker’s Sector 1 Arsenal Pack expands your toolbox with 4 vicious implements of death.

Welcome to the Dreadshore, a place of mud, rust, and endless fog. On the murky remains of the New England coastline stands a lighthouse Sanctuary where Custodian and Chimera once performed unspeakable experiments in a prison of pain.

Their tools now become yours. Explore punishing new avenues of creativity with the traps and genetic abominations used to rule this secret facility.

The Dreadshore Arsenal Pack contains:

1 CUSTODIAN:  Nautilus

Enhance the effects of defensive weaponry and increase your odds of survival against any onslaught. This armor, resembling an ancient diving suit, was developed in secret by the only prisoner to escape the lighthouse Sanctuary. Nautilus, a terror from the depths who came to drown the last of humanity.

1 TRAP: Sentry Beam

This trap was developed by the lighthouse Sanctuary to swiftly execute any prisoner bold enough to pursue escape. The Sentry Beam’s watchful red eye uses motion-tracking to lock onto a target and emit a narrow laser beam of super-heated amplified light – perfect for slicing through fast-moving Raiders. Should the beam miss its mark, it ricochets multiple times offering additional opportunity for a chaotic, blistering kill.

1 GUARD: Ravager

Both ruthless brute and precise killer, the Ravager is a disturbing result of the lighthouse Sanctuary’s failed cloning experiments. Its visor alters its vision to display multiple blurred targets when only one is present, causing it to simultaneously fire at each in a scattershot attack more difficult to evade than a single bolt. Efficient and aggressive, the Ravager is an imposing addition to any Outpost’s defenses.

1 WEAPON: Demolition Cannon

Discovered in the Sanctuary’s armory by Nautilus during his blood-soaked escape, the Demolition Cannon was used to decimate any who stood in his path. Powerful and portable, this heavy artillery delivers an explosive payload in a reusable shell for a localized explosion that causes massive damage.

Why Sony Hiked PlayStation 5 Prices Globally!

Sony just gave everyone a “nice” August surprise, by hiking PlayStation 5 prices globally by up to 24%!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Sony Hikes PlayStation 5 Prices Globally, Except US!

Sony has had a hard time producing enough PlayStation 5 consoles, with available units getting snapped up within minutes, often by scalpers.

It doesn’t seem to be a situation that will likely be resolved until 2024, but that does not mean Sony is willing to lose out on profits just because there’s still a shortage of chips worldwide.

On 25 August 2022, they sprung a “nice” surprise by announcing an immediate hike to PlayStation 5 prices globally… except in the United States.

Japan gets a short reprieve until September 14, so consumers there can still enjoy the lower price, but with virtually no stock at hand, that probably won’t make much of a difference.

Europe

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – €549.99
  • PS5 Digital Edition – €449.99

UK

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – £479.99
  • PS5 Digital Edition – £389.99

Japan (effective Sept. 15, 2022)

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – ¥60,478 yen (including tax)
  • PS5 Digital Edition – ¥49,478 yen (including tax)

China

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – ¥4,299 yuan
  • PS5 Digital Edition – ¥3,499 yuan

Australia

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – AUD $799.95
  • PS5 Digital Edition – AUD $649.95

Mexico

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – MXN $14,999
  • PS5 Digital Edition – MXN $12,499

Canada

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – CAD $649.99
  • PS5 Digital Edition – CAD $519.99

Singapore

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – SG$799
  • PS5 Digital Edition – SG$669

Malaysia

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – RM2,499
  • PS5 Digital Edition – RM2,069

Indonesia

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – IDR 9,699,000
  • PS5 Digital Edition – IDR 8,199,000

Thailand

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – THB 18,690
  • PS5 Digital Edition – THB 15,690

Philippines

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – PHP 30,790

Vietnam

  • PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – VND 15,990,000

In the United Kingdom, prices are going up by £30 for both the Blu-ray and Digital Edition versions – a 6% to 8% hike.

In Europe, the €50 hike raises the console’s price by 10% to 12.5% for the Blu-ray and Digital Edition versions respectively.

In Australia, the A$50 hike raises the console’s price by 6.7% to 8.3% for the Blu-ray and Digital Edition versions respectively.

Here in Malaysia, the RM200 hike raises the console’s price by 8.7% to 10.7% for the Blu-ray and Digital Edition versions respectively.

The highest increase though will be in Japan. The ¥10,498 increase is a massive 21% hike over the original price of ¥49,980 for the Blu-ray edition. The Digital Edition was originally priced at ¥39,980, but it will cost 24% more after its price is raised by ¥9,498.

 

Why Is Sony Hiking PlayStation 5 Prices Globally, Except US?!

It is certainly odd and rare for companies to raise prices on a product in the middle of its lifespan. I should point out that the PlayStation 5 is almost 2 years old, having been launched on November 12, 2020.

Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan blamed the decision on “challenging economic conditions” which caused “high global inflation rates, as well as adverse currency trends“.

The global economic environment is a challenge that many of you around the world are no doubt experiencing. We’re seeing high global inflation rates, as well as adverse currency trends, impacting consumers and creating pressure on many industries.

Based on these challenging economic conditions, SIE has made the difficult decision to increase the recommended retail price (RRP) of PlayStation 5 in select markets across Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), Asia-Pacific (APAC), Latin America (LATAM), as well as Canada. There will be no price increase in the United States.

Why not the United States? Probably because Sony is not doing quite so well in that market, getting edged out by Xbox Series X/S. So it looks like Sony does not want to upset the apple cart there just yet…

PlayStation 5 is doing great in other countries, so Sony apparently felt confident enough to raise prices without the risk of potential customers jumping to the Xbox bandwagon in protest.

Ultimately, this boils down to profit. If Sony cannot get enough units out the door, the only way to increase profits is to raise prices. And if raising prices will keep the shareholders happy and protect their own bonuses, it’s no surprise that Sony executives would sign off on this.

Even more shockingly – Sony is raising prices most in its own turf. Japanese gamers will have to put up with a massive price hike of 21% to 24%.

It really does not pay to be a fan of Sony products…

Did China Invent Artificial Woman Called HOORI?!

Did China just introduce an artificial woman called HOORI, with artificial intelligence and 72 hour battery life?!

Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : China Invented Artificial Woman Called HOORI!

Netizens are sharing a video of an artificial woman on WhatsApp and social media, claiming that she was invented by a Chinese company.

A artificial woman made in China has been released into the Chinese market. The body flesh is made of 100% Fanta Flesh material with silicone parts. A single charge will work for 72 hours without interruption. No soul. No need for food. Market price is Rs.200000 + tax. It is named “HOORI”. It works on artificial intelligence so it can speak any language with 99% accuracy. The company is planning to launch this “HOORI” in India soon. No Dowry… No Horoscopes. Cooks, home courses, no arguments, no demands or orders! have a nice days ahead.

Artificial woman made in China has been launched in the Chinese market. Body meat 100% Fanta Flesh Material Made With Silicone Parts. Works for 72 hours without interruption on a single charge. No soul / spirit. No need for food.

Imagine how far China have gone in technology. We Africans are begin because of Western country people.

China has produced first plastic female human. Very intelligent & beautiful.

The only thing she doesn’t have is “soul”.

Recommended : China Caught Lab Workers Paid To Spread Covid-19?!

 

Truth : China Did Not Invent Artificial Woman Called HOORI!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated on WhatsApp and social media, and here are the reasons why!

Fact #1 : China Did Not Invent Any Artificial Woman

Let me just clearly state this – no Chinese company has invented an artificial woman to handle your household affairs for 72 hours on a single battery charge.

Neither did they invented an android with the capability to speak any language with 99% accuracy.

Fact #2 : It Was Taken From A Video Game

The video was actually edited from a promotional short video called “Detroit: Become Human – Shorts: Chloe“.

This short video was created to promote a 2018 video game called Detroit: Become Human by Quantic Dream, and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.

It was edited to remove the introduction of the video which shows the Playstation logo, the Quantic Dream logo, and this title screen, which clearly explains that this video is part of a video game.

Recommended : 31 FREE Steam Games + DLCs : 15 March 2023 List!

It was also edited to remove the end screen, which shows that the animated sequence was “shot in game engine”.

In other words – the developers rendered the scene using the game’s own graphics engine. This is a type of animated filmmaking called machinima.

Recommended : Samsung Odyssey Ark Gaming Monitor : A Quick Look!

Fact #3 : The Original Video Was Published In May 2018

To promote the launch of the game on Playstation 4, Quantic and Sony released the Chloe animated short video on May 23, 2018.

That short video shows a 2024 interview by KNC of Chloe – an RT600 android and the first to pass the Turing test.

John : For starters, what should I call you?

Chloe : I’m Chloe. And you, what’s your name?

John : Oh, John. My name is John.

Chloe : Delighted to meet you, John.

John : Could you tell us a little about yourself and what you can do, Chloe?

Chloe : Of course. I’m the first personal assistant built by CyberLife. I take care of most everyday tasks like cooking, housework, or managing your appointments for example.

John : And I understand you’re the first android to have passed the Turing test. Could you tell us a little more about that?

Chloe : I really didn’t do much, you know. I just spoke with a few humans to see if they could tell the difference between me and a real person. It was a really interesting experience.

John : But this is the first time in history that man has created a machine more intelligent than himself. I gather your brain can perform several billion, billion operations per second. Is that right?

Chloe : Absolutely. But I only exist thanks to the intelligence of the humans who designed me. And, you know, they have something I could never have.

John : Really? And what’s that?

Chloe : A soul.

Recommended : Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Performance Examined!

Fact #4 : CyberLife Only Exists In The Game

The company that invented the RT600 android called Chloe is called CyberLife.

This is not a real company. It only exists as an antagonistic faction in the game, Detroit: Become Human.

In that game, CyberLife was founded by Elijah Kamski (also a fictional character), and it produces all kinds of android in Detroit.

Mega PS4 Crypto-Mine : How Much Can It Make?

The Ukrainian Security Service just raided an illegal crypto-mining operation using 3,800 PS4 consoles!

Take a look inside this Ukrainian PS4 crypto-mine, and find out how much they’re making!

 

Ukrainian Crypto-Mine With 3,800 PS4 Consoles Raided!

Cryptocurrency miners have turned the gaming world upside down, buying up graphics cards and even gaming laptops in bulk. As long as it has a GPU, they are snatching it up!

But their demand for more computing power does not seem to be sated, and they even turned their attention to old PS4 consoles!

While many have pooh-poohed the possibility of mining cryptocurrency using PS4 consoles, the Ukrainians went ahead and did it!

On 8 July 2021, the Ukrainian SBU (Sluzhba bezpeky Ukrayiny, Security Service of Ukraine) raided the LARGEST illegal crypto-mine in Ukraine, finding :

  • 3800 PS4 gaming consoles,
  • more than 500 graphics cards,
  • 50 processors,
  • documents accounting their power consumption,
  • notebooks, phones, and flash drives.

By hiding inside the former premises of JSC Vinnytsia Oblenerho – a leading Ukrainian power supply company, this crypto-mine conveniently and quietly stole power from the JSC Vinnytsia Oblenerho network!

According to preliminary estimates, they were siphoning about 5 to 7 million Ukrainian Hryvnia (approximately US$180,000 to 260,000 / RM770,000 to 1.08 million) every month!

 

How Much Can This Ukrainian PS4 Crypto-Mine Make?

The PS4 and PS4 Slim use a custom AMD Radeon 7970M GPU, with 18 compute units and 8 GB of GDDR5 memory with 176 GB/s of memory bandwidth.

It is roughly 20% slower than the AMD Radeon 7970M mobile GPU, but cryptomining is less about processing power, and memory bandwidth.

So let’s just call PS4 Slim equivalent to the Radeon 7970M for mining purposes, which delivers a hash rate of about 8.35 H/s.

Each PS4 console would be fast enough to generate 0.00013896 BTC worth US$4.62 per month, as of 12 July 2021.

So that Ukrainian PS4 crypto-mine with 3,800 PS4 consoles should generate about 0.528048 BTC worth US$18,041 per month, as of 12 July 2021.

That’s really not a lot of profit to be honest, especially when you consider how much electricity they are actually using!

In fact, it is really a loss-making operation if they actually paid for their electricity – they would lose $9 for every dollar they make!

 

Ukrainian SBU : Official Statement On PS4 Crypto-Mine

This is the English translation of the official statement by the Ukrainian SBU on the illegal PS4 crypto-mine :

The Security Service of Ukraine has exposed and documented the illegal extraction of large amounts of electricity in Vinnytsia. The attackers exchanged cryptocurrency directly in one of the former premises of JSC Vinnytsiaoblenerho. Currently, it is the largest underground crypto-farm discovered by Ukrainian law enforcement agencies: almost 5,000 units of computer equipment were seized.

SBU officers established that the illegal crypto-farm was created by residents of Kyiv and Vinnytsia. They used one of the former warehouses of Vinnytsiaoblenerho JSC, which is located on the company’s industrial site.

The attackers illegally took electricity from the networks of JSC Vinnytsiaoblenerho. To hide their activities, they used conventional means of accounting for electricity consumption.

According to preliminary conclusions of experts, the monthly amount of losses from such activities can range from 5 to 7 million UAH. At the same time, the illegal withdrawal of electricity could lead to more global consequences – entire neighborhoods of Vinnytsia could be left without electricity.

Militiamen registered criminal proceedings under part 2 of Art. 188-1 (theft of water, electricity or heat through its unauthorized use) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

During the authorized searches at the place of operation of the farm and at the addresses of the defendants, the following were seized:

  • 3800 game consoles;
  • more than 500 video cards;
  • 50 processors;
  • draft documentation on electricity consumption accounting;
  • notebooks, phones, flash drives.

Currently, operational and investigative actions are underway to establish the full range of persons involved in illegal activities, including the involvement of officials of JSC “Vinnytsiaoblenergo”.

Exposure measures were carried out by the State Security Counterintelligence Protection Service in the field of economic security of the SBU together with the USBU in Vinnytsia Oblast and the Main Investigation Department of the National Police of Ukraine and under the procedural guidance of the Prosecutor General’s Office.

Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition

In an era where Machines roam the land and mankind is no longer the dominant species, a young hunter named Aloy embarks on a journey to discover her destiny.

In a lush, post-apocalyptic world where nature has reclaimed the ruins of a forgotten civilization, pockets of humanity live on in primitive hunter-gatherer tribes.

Their dominion over the new wilderness has been usurped by the Machines – fearsome mechanical creatures of unknown origin.

Shunned by her tribe since birth, Aloy has never known a mother’s embrace or the acceptance of a community. Her only companion was Rost, the stern, impassive recluse who fostered her.

Rost taught Aloy to survive any physical hardship and to scorn comforts as weakness – but he couldn’t provide the answer to the questions which troubled her above all else: who her parents were, and why she was cast out.

Explore a vibrant landscape rich with the beauty of nature. Travel through stunningly detailed forests, imposing mountains and the atmospheric ruins of a bygone civilization, all brought together in a world that is alive with changing weather systems and a full day/night cycle.

PS4 Consoles Now Used To Mine Cryptocurrency?

Is it possible that cryptocurrency miners are now using Sony PS4 consoles to mine Bitcoin or Ethereum?

Take a look at the viral photo, and tell us what you think!

Read more : Ukrainian Crypto-Mine With 3,800 PS4 Consoles Raided!

 

PS4 Consoles Now Used To Mine Cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency miners have turned the gaming world upside down, buying up graphics cards and even gaming laptops in bulk. As long as it has a GPU, they are snatching it up!

But their demand for more computing power does not seem to be sated, and it appears that they may have turned their attention to PS4 consoles!

Take a look at this viral photo of a very ghetto-looking mining rig made up of sixteen PS4 Slim consoles.

 

How Much Money Can This PS4 Mining Rig Make?

We have no idea if it’s actually running, or just a work in progress though, because we never heard of anyone actually mining cryptocurrency on the PS4.

The PS4 and PS4 Slim use a custom AMD Radeon 7970M GPU, with 18 compute units and 8 GB of GDDR5 memory with 176 GB/s of memory bandwidth.

It is roughly 20% slower than the AMD Radeon 7970M mobile GPU, but cryptomining is less about processing power, and memory bandwidth.

So let’s just call PS4 Slim equivalent to the  Radeon 7970M for mining purposes, which delivers a hash rate of about 8.35 H/s.

Each PS4 console would be fast enough to generate 0.00013896 BTC worth US$7.62 per month.

And that 16-console PS4 mining rig above would generate about 0.00222336 BTC worth US$121.92 per month.

Even if they are stealing electricity, that’s really not a lot of profit, to be honest…

PlayStation 5 : A First Look At Its User Experience!

Sony just shared the first look at the PlayStation 5 console’s user experience (UX)!

Check it out and let us know what YOU think!

 

PlayStation 5 : A First Look At Its User Experience!

It’s less than a month to the official launch of the PlayStation 5 console, and Sony just shared their very first look at its user experience (UX)!

They designed the PS5 UX to “completely” centre on the player, in order to deliver deeper immersion that quickly connects you to your games and the PlayStation community.

In this video walkthrough, the PS5 team gives you an early look at its user experience.

Do note that this video was recorded off a pre-production environment, so there may be some minor differences to the final version when it launches in November 2020.

 

PlayStation 5 : New User Experience Features

The new PlayStation 5 UX introduces several new features to make your gaming experience “more fun, engaging, personalised and social“.

  • a new Control Centre, which provides immediate access to almost everything you need with a single press of the PlayStation button on the DualSense controller – all without leaving the game.

  • Activities, which are displayed via on-screen cards in the Control Center. They enable you to:
    – discover new gameplay opportunities,
    – go back to things you missed,
    – jump directly into levels, or
    – jump into challenges you want to play
    Some Activity cards can be put in picture-in-picture mode, so you can view them without leaving the game.

The PlayStation 5 team also rebuilt the entire software stack, from the console to the network, so that navigating the interface, switching between games and hopping into online matches occurs quickly.

Pakistan Suspends PUBG Due To Children Suicide Risks!

Pakistan just suspended PUBG due to suicide risks to children, with a hearing scheduled next week! Find out what’s going on!

 

PUBG : PlayerUnknown’s Battleground

PUBG is short for PlayerUnknown’s Battleground – an online multiplayer game in which up to 100 players parachute onto an island to battle it out.

Players have to scavenge for weapons and equipment, while trying to avoid getting killed and killing the other players, until the last person / team standing wins the round.

 

Pakistan Suspends PUBG Due To Children Suicide Risks!

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) just announced the immediate suspension of PUBG, citing physical and psychological risks to children, which have lead to suicides.

On the direction of the Lahore High Court, the PTA is soliciting the views of the public on PUBG, and will hold a hearing next week, on 9 July 2020, on the matter.

Usman Abdul Jabbar shared with us that PUBG Mobile as well as PUBG Lite and PUBG for consoles and PC have been suspended.

Here is the official statement released by the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority :

In view of complaints received from different segments of society, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has decided to temporarily suspend the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) game.

PTA has received numerous complaints against PUBG wherein it is stated that the game is addictive, wastage of time and poses serious negative impact on physical and psychological health of the children.

ccording to recent media reports, cases of suicide attributed to PUBG game have also been reported. Honorable Lahore High court has also directed PTA to look into the issue and decide the matter after hearing the complainants. In this regard, a hearing is being conducted on 9th of July 2020.

The Authority also decided to solicit views of the public with reference to the said online game. In this regard public is encouraged to provide feedback through consultation-pubg@pta.gov.pk by July 10, 2020

We should note that this follows the suicide of a 16 year-old boy – Mohammad ZakaryaMohammad Zakarya – after he failed to complete his mission in PUBG Mobile. He was said to be addicted to the game, playing many hours every day.

 

Pakistan Suspends PUBG : Not Geopolitics

While some people have pointed out that this occurred right after India banned 59 Chinese apps for cybersecurity risks, they are unrelated.

The desktop PUBG game was made by Bluehole, a South Korean company. Only the mobile version – PUBG Mobile was developed by Tencent Games.

Pakistan is also close to China, and is thus unlikely to be targeting Chinese companies in support of India, its geopolitical foe.

While it is always good to highlight the importance of responsible gaming, this is likely nothing more than an attempt to find a scapegoat for addiction and mental health issues facing Pakistanis.

Scam Alert : Fake PS4 Promotions On Facebook!

Watch out for a new scam involving fake PS4 promotions on Facebook! At least one person has already been cheated of his money!

Please SHARE this news out, so other people won’t get cheated by this scammer!

 

Scam Alert : Fake PS4 Promotions On Facebook!

Video game store GameOn just posted about a scammer pretending to be them on Facebook, promoting these fake PS4 bundle deals :

  • PS4 Pro : RM 799 with 2 free games and 2 controllers
  • PS4 Slim : RM 699 with 2 free games and 2 controllers

 

The scammer, using the similarly sounding GameOn City, offered this fake-looking SSM company registration certificate to prove his authenticity.

GameOn apparently found out about this scam, after someone got cheated and contacted them about it.

GameOn, which is based in Petaling Jaya (not Negeri Sembilan as the GameOn City SSM certificate shows), and has been in business since 2015.

Although they did not share the full MyKad, here is what we know about this PS4 Hari Raya scammer :

  • His partial name : xxxxxrady Enggu
  • His partial MyKad : 331-08-5133
  • His mobile number : 011-2512-4387
  • His origin : He appears to be from Malim Nawar, Kampar, Perak.

But please note that this scammer can easily use a different company name, so do not assume that other PS4 offers on Facebook are genuine!

 

Fake PS4 Scam : How To Avoid It?

Here are some simple steps to avoid falling for such a scam :

  • If a deal is too good to be true, it is very likely to be fake or a scam.
    The real PS4 Pro bundle costs RM 2,399 – how can it possibly be sold for just RM 799, which is just ⅓ of the price?
  • Real companies will not post up their SSM certificates. Only those who need to convince you that they are legit.
  • Never transfer money to anyone’s personal bank account.
  • Purchase only from legitimate companies / online stores. Not through WhatsApp or Facebook.

12 Days Later : Unifi Statement On Game Server Issues…

12 days after the official Unifi support account on Twitter claimed that Unifi blocked some game servers, Unifi finally issued an official statement on the whole PR disaster…

Their statement was aptly named We Are Gamers Too… but honestly, this statement should have been issued 12 days ago.

 

What Happened : Unifi Will Block Games With Inappropriate Content???

The whole issue started on 6 February 2020, when Ahmad Asyraf asked the official Unifi support account on Twitter (@helpmeunifi) to check why he was unable to connect to the Rainbow Six Siege game servers on Unifi.

Shockingly, he was told that “TM will block if the games involve inappropriate content such as violent, gaming, scam, etc.

While some netizens started saying that @helpmeunifi is a fake account, that’s not true. It is a genuine Unifi support account on Twitter.

 

We Found Out What Really Happened 11 Days Ago

We got in touch with a Unifi Chat staff to clarify this, and she confirmed that the @helpmeunifi statement was correct.

It would have been easy to stop there, and start lambasting Unifi for such a policy. After all, the Malaysian government is promoting esports involving FPS games like Rainbow Six Siege!

But for us, their statements appear to be boilerplate replies by frontline staff members who have no idea if this is actually a technical issue, or a policy decision.

So we wrote to TM by email, asking them to clarify why Unifi users are unable to access Rainbow Six Siege game servers.

If it was a technical issue, what was the problem, and when will Unifi be able to restore access?

And if it was a policy issue, we wanted to know how TM came to that decision to block access to the Rainbow Six Siege game servers on Unifi, and if that was a directive by the MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission).

This was their replies to us in two separate emails (edited for clarity) :

We are not restricting access to Ubisoft game servers. We are currently working on the issue with Ubisoft.

Our 2nd Level team is already aware of this issue, and are in the midst of investigating the cause. We cannot give you a restoration time frame, and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

So, there you have it, everyone. Confirmation that TM did not actually block access to the Rainbow Six Siege game servers, or any game server for the matter.

As we suspected, the TM Unifi frontline support staff merely recited their boilerplate policy that they have the right to block access to content with inappropriate content.

 

We Are Gamers Too : Official Unifi Statement On Game Server Issues

Almost two weeks into this PR kerfuffle, Unifi finally issued an official statement on the whole issue :

We Are Gamers Too

Hi everyone, recently we’ve received feedback that some unifi users, who are avid gamers, have had some problems accessing their favourite video game servers such as EA, Ubisoft and the PlayStation Network. Understandably, this has caused some frustration. We get it and we feel your frustration. After all, we’re gamers too.

And understandably, there has been some confusion on why these problems occurred. Difficulty accessing gaming servers is not a problem for unifi users only. We’ve checked. Gamers on other networks in Malaysia and around the world are going through the same thing.

There are a number of scenarios that may affect access to game servers. They include multiple logins and wrong login attempts. This has nothing to do with the unifi network itself. Please give us a moment to clarify some misconceptions.

We Do Not Block Access To Game Servers

A number of you have reached out to us via social media and our official customer service channels asking if we block access to game servers. We’d like to make it very clear that we don’t and have no reason to do so. Video games are a big part of a lot of people, including us.

Our Network Is Built For Gamers

With a fibre optic network that spans a distance farther than the moon, the unifi network is the most extensive fixed and mobile network in the country, and we’ve designed this network to cater for the demands of gamers just like you.

Our network comprises of 12 data centres, 20 submarine cables spanning the globe and over 560,000 kilometres of fibre optic cables to offer the best gaming experience for you.

Our state-of-the-art network operations centre proactively monitors our network and continuously optimizes data routes to mitigate and eliminate congestions to further improve your gaming experience.

At the same time, we’re always adding the latest game consoles in our labs as part of our test program to find out how we can further optimize our network for the newest consoles.

In addition, we have direct peering connections to some of the biggest game brands in the world.

If You Encounter Problems, What Can You Do?

First of all, it is very likely not a problem with the unifi network. The causes for problems accessing your favourite games server may vary and we recommend that you reach out to the server provider directly to check.

Head over to the unifi community. We have an active community of unifi users that help each other. The unifi community is the best place to find like-minded users that may have encountered a similar problem and have found a solution for it. Users having problems with their PSN Network Address Translation (NAT) configuration found that the solution offered here help solved their issue.

We hope these tips will improve your gaming experience. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us on social media, via live chat or phone. Thank you.

God of War

From Santa Monica Studio and creative director Cory Barlog comes a new beginning for God of War.

Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father.

Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.

Bold New Beginning

His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters.

It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive… And teach his son to do the same.

This startling reimagining of God of War deconstructs the core elements that defined the series—satisfying combat; breathtaking scale; and a powerful narrative—and fuses them anew.

A Darker, More Elemental World

From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods.

With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore every inch of God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape — by far the largest in the franchise.

Vicious, Physical Combat

With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling.

A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.

 

FREE God of War Legendary Armour + Skins

From now until 6 January 2020 (12 AM PT), Santa Monica Studio is giving away these God of War legendary armour sets and skins for a limited time.

  • Death’s Vow Armor Sets for Kratos and Atreus
  • Exile’s Guardian Shield Skin
  • Buckler of the Forge Shield Skin
  • Shining Elven Soul-Shield Skin
  • Dökkenshieldr Shield Skin

Once downloaded from the PlayStation Store, these items will be available in-game in your Armor and Weapons tab menu to customize Kratos and Atreus.

If you are beginning a new game, these items will be available to customize at the start of the Deer hunt.
