2021 Army vs. Navy live stream, watch online, TV channel, football game, kickoff time on CBS – CBS Sports

Army will retain the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy this season, at worst, but the Black Knights have the chance to claim the prize outright on Saturday when they play Navy in the annual rivalry showdown between the service academies at 3 p.m. ET on CBS. Navy can play the role of spoiler and salvage an otherwise disappointing season with an upset win in college football‘s most patriotic rivalry game as the regular season officially comes to a close.
Navy won 14 straight games in the series between 2002 and 2015, but Army has taken control recently with victories in four of the last five. That includes a 15-0 win last season that marked the first shutout performance in the series since a 34-0 Navy win in 2008.
Because the Black Knights beat Air Force 21-14 on Nov. 6, they are in position to at least retain physical possession of the trophy even with a loss. Air Force beat Navy 23-3 on Sept. 11., so if Navy defeats Army, the three service academies would each be 1-1 against each other. Because Army won the trophy last season, however, it would retain possession of the trophy for another year.
Date: Saturday, Dec. 11 | Time: 3 p.m. ET
Location: MetLife Stadium — East Rutherford, New Jersey
TV: CBS | Live stream: CBSSports.comCBS Sports App (Free), Paramount+ Premium
Army’s historic run: Since the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy was established for the 1972 season, this is Army’s best run. The Black Knights have won the trophy outright in three of the last four seasons, and they can make it four of five with a win in this game. That would best the program’s previous best five-year run of three outright trophies between 1984 and 1988.
Last season’s struggle: Last season’s 15-0 Army win made for the lowest-scoring game in the series since the teams played a to a 3-3 tie in 1981. Army led just 3-0 entering the fourth quarter before a Tyhier Tyler 4-yard run put the Black Knights up two possessions with 11:02 to play. The teams combined for just 279 total yards and a total of two completed passes. It was an epic defensive struggle, even by the standards of two low-scoring, option-oriented offenses.
Navy needs momentum: 14th-year Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo has posted 10 winning seasons in his tenure and won 11 games on two occasions, the most recent coming in 2019. But the Midshipmen are going to finish with a losing record in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2001-02, which was during the coaching transition from Charlie Weatherbie to Paul Johnson. Service academies are typically more patient with head coaches than other schools, but a win over an arch-rival would surely go a long way to alleviating whatever pressure Niumatalolo may be feeling.

Ubisoft NFTs, called 'Digits', launch for in-game items – BBC News

Published

on

Game titan Ubisoft has announced its new system to bring NFTs to its in-game items, starting this week.
Non-fungible tokens have exploded in popularity, and are widely used for digital art collectibles.
Ubisoft's system – called "Digits" – will be offered as in-game digital items with one-of-a-kind serial numbers, which can be bought and sold.
Critics argue NFTs are bad for the environment, while offering little benefit over traditional systems.
Ubisoft – famous for games such as the Assassin's Creed, Far Cry and Rainbow Six series – is the most significant game developer and publisher to launch an NFT project yet.
The company claims it has addressed the environmental problems associated with blockchain technology.
Its in-game NFTs will be stored on the Tezos blockchain, which it claims is far more energy-efficient than other options.
But the use of NFTs in gaming remains controversial, with many players and designers believing they are only considered as a way to make money, rather than providing players with any benefit.
Ubisoft's first batch of Digits will launch with "limited editions" – of a fixed number of in-game digital items – for the company's game Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, on Thursday. They can be paid for with crypto-currency, but only in the launch countries of USA, Canada, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Australia and Brazil.
Many games – especially free-to-play ones such as the popular Fortnite or Warzone titles – make a large chunk of their money through selling in-game cosmetic items or "skins" that change the look of characters or items.
Ubisoft is applying the NFT technology to this game mechanic, and calling its overall ecosystem "Quartz".
NFTs are always unique in some way, but in-game cosmetics are identical for every player who gets a copy. Ubisoft's solution is to put a unique serial number on these digital items.
In one example shown by the company, a digital helmet worn by a character appears to have a serial number "stamped in" to the metal in its appearance – a number Ubisoft says will be different for every owner.
That serial number will be visible in-game to other players, and each player can only own one of each "Digit" NFT, Ubisoft said.
These Digits can then be bought and sold with crypto-currency like any other token on the blockchain – even for those who do not own or play Ubisoft's games. The items will also list previous owners in-game, it said.
"With Digits, items are no longer bound to a player's game inventory since they can be put on sale for other eligible players to acquire on third-party platforms outside of the Ubisoft ecosystem," it said.
But it is unlikely the items would ever be able to be used in non-Ubisoft games.
Some NFTs give the original creator a "cut" of the sale every time it changes hands. Ubisoft has not said if it has set up the system in that way.
The company is characterising the entire release as a "large-scale experiment" and says it has been exploring blockchain technology for four years.
Ubisoft says it is using the Tezos blockchain because it requires "exceedingly less energy" than other systems used to mine Bitcoin or Ethereum crypto-currencies.
Traditional crypto-systems use what's called "proof of work" which involves powerful computers doing extremely intense calculations to verify transactions. Tezos uses a different system, called "proof of stake".
But the whole idea of including NFTs in games is controversial in itself, despite interest from another large gaming firm, EA.
Steam, the largest PC gaming platform, has banned NFT and blockchain games from being listed on its store – which resulted in the removal of some early NFT-based games.
One popular Twitter thread from a game designer on the topic, arguing that NFTs "are harmful to games" and that things are not "made any easier or better by building them with NFTs and blockchain tech", has been retweeted thousands of times.
The trading of cosmetic items for real money has also been proven to work without blockchain technology – by Steam, which released a system for buying and selling in-game skins in 2012.
But Ubisoft said its NFT system is a first step towards "developing a true metaverse". The metaverse concept sometimes includes the idea of digitally-owned items transferring between different digital worlds. Some enthusiasts believe NFTs offer a clear mechanic for doing so.
"Our long-term efforts led us to understand how blockchain's decentralised approach could genuinely make players stakeholders of our games, in a way that is also sustainable for our industry, placing back into their hands the value they generate through the time they spend, the items they buy or the content they create online," argued Nicolas Pouard from Ubisoft's innovation team.

This Custom Miles Morales PS5 Controller Looks Incredible – GLITCHED

Published

on

A custom Spider-Man: Miles Morales PS5 DualSense controller is making the rounds online, and it looks incredible. Created by digital artist Giuseppe Spinelli in collaboration with LetsGoDigital, the striking controller is simply a concept artwork that coincidentally arrived with the launch of the first trailer for Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse (Part One).
The Miles Morales-themed DualSense controller was originally created to celebrate the launch of Insomniac’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on the PS5, but only surfaced recently. Spinelli also revealed that he had been working with airbrush artist Enrico Bertagnoli (aka Berta) to create more Spider-Man themed PS5 controllers too, apart from this Miles Morales controller.
This custom Miles Morales PS5 DualSense sports a striking red and black web design around the frame of the controller, with the game’s slogan “Be Yourself” plastered on the touchpad. The lighting around the touchpad was even changed to a more thematic red instead of the usual blue. The controller was made as a showcase piece, since it’s not actually a licensed Sony product (though it would be great if PlayStation took a few hints). Check out the images below:

Unfortunately, the controller is not for sale right now. Spinelli and LetsGoDigital aren’t entirely against the idea of mass producing them in bulk, though it comes with its own set of issues. Thanks to a combination of supply chain issues and having to painstakingly paint each controller manually, it will not exactly be cheap or speedily available. Alternatively, you can DM or email Berta on his social media channels if you’re interested in getting your hands on one. It’s not entirely guaranteed, though.
The few custom Miles Morales controllers that Spinelli and Berta did create are currently being preserved as memorabilia, with one of them residing in Bonami Gaming Console Museum in The Netherlands.
