Android Apps & Games / This Is The Best Deal On A 4TB SSD For PS5 Right Now
Now that the PS5 supports SSD storage expansion, you’re going to want to get one if you own a PS5, and this one from PNY is probably the best deal available right now. At least on an SSD of this size. But, before you can get an SSD for your PS5’s expansion slot, there are a few things to know. For one, it has to meet Sony’s specifications.
There are a set of requirements that Sony has laid out that the SSD you buy needs to meet. Or, it won’t be compatible with the console. You can read about those here.
With that out of the way, why is this SSD deal from PNY for the PS5 one of the best deals available? For a few reasons. One of them being that, well… because it works with the PS5. So, right off the bat it’s worth considering because it’s compatible. But it isn’t just that. PNY is also chopping some of the price off. This is a 4TB NVMe PCIe Gen4 SSD. SSDs of this type in this size don’t come cheap.
And while this particular SSD isn’t really all that cheap either, it is on sale. Normally it retails for $749. Right now though PNY is offering it at 20% off. That brings the price down to $587. Compared to other brands, like Samsung which doesn’t even offer a 4TB model of its PS5-compatible 980 Pro, and Seagate whose FireCuda 530 in a 4TB with a heatsink is closer to $1,000, this isn’t just a deal. It’s a steal.
In addition to the better price, the PNY 4TB XLR8 NVMe SSD also has read speeds of up to 5,600 MB/s and write speeds of up to 3,900 MB/s. Well within Sony’s required range. It also comes with a 5-year warranty. The last thing to note is that this does not come with a heatsink. Which Sony recommends you have.
So you will need to buy one separately and attach it yourself. Luckily, you can get a pretty decent one for very little money.

GTA 5 on PS5 May Face Another Delay, Claims Rumor | Screen Rant – Screen Rant
A new rumor claims the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of Grand Theft Auto 5 may receive yet another delay, pushing the ports of out March 2022.
According to a new rumor, Rockstar Games may delay the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of Grand Theft Auto 5 by up to two months. Rockstar unleashed a first look at GTA 5’s PlayStation 5 upgrade during the September 2021 PlayStation Showcase. Though the enhanced version originally bore a November 2021 due date, the gameplay trailer in question ended with news of a delay. Thus, the top-selling Grand Theft Auto entry will now migrate to new-gen consoles on an unspecified date in March of this year.
Notably, fans didn’t respond well to the gameplay trailer. While the lightning-fast character swapping did indeed manage to impress, players were expecting much more of a visual overhaul. The graphics look cleaner compared to the PS4 release but seem on par with the title’s nearly seven-year-old PC iteration, raising questions about the quality of the new-gen port. Now it appears as if GTA 5’s enhanced edition will spend a few more weeks in the oven.
As spotted by GamesRadar, Brazilian dataminer Matheusvictorbr posted a tweet over the weekend claiming to have heard that Grand Theft Auto 5’s PS5 upgrade is facing development complications. The new-gen ports presently remain on track for a March 2022 launch; however, the dataminer added that if the unidentified issues persist, Rockstar Games and publisher Take-Two Interactive may delay the enhanced edition to April or May. Matheusvictorbr’s tweet on the matter ends with the note that Rockstar will likely share an article about the upgrades sometime soon.
· Eu recebi algumas informações Recentemente referente ao título: Grand Theft Auto V: Expanded And Enhanced.
· O desenvolvimento foi complicado. No momento segue sendo em março, Mas há grandes chances que seja adiado para Abril/Maio.
· Um Artigo R* chegando em breve.
Per usual, all of the above should be taken with a grain of salt since there currently exists no corroborating information. There’s also no word about when exactly Rockstar and Take-Two plan on sharing new details about Grand Theft Auto 5’s Expanded and Enhanced editions. It’s possible the companies are mindfully taking their time this go around, given the poor state in which Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition launched late last year.
The aforementioned gameplay trailer touted the upgrade’s improved graphics and enhanced gameplay, yet stopped short of offering specifics. According to a German PlayStation Blog post from last August, though, players can expect Rockstar Games’ award-winning adventure to run at 4K in 60 frames per second on the new hardware.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is playable across PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms; the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions still lack a solid due date.

Play The Oregon Trail Game Online – An American Classic – That Oregon Life
As early as 1971 there was a very early version of the game developed by an 8th-grade teacher in Minnesota. He wanted a learning aid to teach his class about what life was really like on the trail from Independence, Missouri to The Dalles, Oregon in the 1850s.
By 1984 the version that I knew and loved as a kid was published, and a year later it was developed for the Apple II computer. There have been subsequent updates all the way up to 2021, but the original is still the most nostalgic for many people.
On a black 16-color VGA background, your job was to guide your wagon from Missouri to Oregon, braving the dangers of rattlesnake bites, dangerous river crossings, and attacks by hostile tribes. It was immersive. If you left too early in the year, flooding was a concern. Leave too late and your wagon could end up snowbound before ever reaching Fort Dalles. Along the way, kids would learn about famous Oregon Trail stops and landmarks, as well as the ever-present dangers along the way. Many things could mean instant death, from broken bones and accidental gunshot wounds to perhaps the most memed of The Oregon Trail game deaths: DYSENTERY.
If you’re feeling nostalgic (or maybe you’ve never played before), click the emulator below to begin playing the Oregon Trail game online. Will you die of cholera or make it to Oregon?
If you’re not into playing this classic online but still want to play, there’s a card game version of the Oregon Trail game you can try. Check out the instructional video on how to play below to see if it’s something you want to add to your board game collection for game night.
Early Americans believed in the concept of ‘Manifest Destiny’ or “the divinely ordained right of the United States to expand its borders to the Pacific Ocean and beyond.”
In order to expand our borders to the Pacific Ocean, the US government offered up free land to those willing to travel to ‘Oregon Country’. Pioneers going west to claim land faced a long and dangerous journey overland by foot on routes like the Oregon Trail.
Pioneers sold everything they had in order to buy a wagon and supplies, left their homes and families behind and set out west with groups of other pioneers for a trip that could take up to a year. Many people didn’t survive the trip, and the Oregon trail was littered with dressers, pianos and other furniture pioneers had to offload and leave behind because they couldn’t be hauled uphill.
When Pioneers got to their destination in the Pacific Northwest they faced wilderness that had to be tamed, and they had to work and improve their land for four years in order to keep the homestead that had been given to them via the Oregon Donation Land Act.
The Oregon Donation Land Act initially offered up 320 acre parcels of land in 1843, though only to white male citizens. A woman could only claim 320 acres if she was married, meaning a married couple could claim a 640 acre parcel of land for their homestead. The law changed in 1850 to offer up half the land, so married couples could only claim 320 acres. Once a person had lived on and made improvements to the land for four years, they were given legal title to the property.

Harry Potter Game Hogwarts Legacy Allegedly in Trouble on PS5, PS4 – Push Square

Could be delayed until 2023
It’s been well over a year since we last heard word of Harry Potter-themed open world RPG Hogwarts Legacy, but developer Avalanche Software had promised updates in 2022. That information could end up being a delay, as word has it the title has been stupefied behind-the-scenes. Ex-IGN scribe and Sacred Symbols host Colin Moriarty revealed on his latest PlayStation podcast that the “game isn’t coming out this year” and “it’s in some sort of trouble”.
Moriarty is obviously well-connected, but it’s always worth treating rumours like this with an ounce of scepticism. Nevertheless, it’s not the hardest story to believe: the long-awaited title was originally slated to release in 2021, before it disappeared for the entire year. As mentioned above, the developer did promise to remove the release’s invisibility cloak over the coming months, but even if it is ready to show a little more, that doesn’t necessarily dispel this report.
Sony published a list of upcoming 2022 titles overnight, with Hogwarts Legacy being a notable omission. It’d be a shame if this project got stuck in development hell, because we’ve been waiting for a full-scale Harry Potter RPG for practically our entire adult lives, and this seemed like a dream game when it was first revealed. Here’s hoping either the speculation is inaccurate, or Avalanche Software can steady its Nimbus broom soon.

What are the chances that the game will be targeting adults instead of children/teenagers? I was never able to get into the movies.
Not really surprised and I expect many more games will keep getting delayed. Just as long as Horizon forbidden west doesn’t get delayed again I will be happy this year.
I no longer trust any release dates as games get announced way to soon these days. Obviously the pandemic is still greatly affecting things also.
@get2sammyb – they’re saying the same about GTA V: E&E as well today.
I will see it when I’ll believe it – one random rumour doesn’t make it so.
They also can’t afford to delay the game without showing anything for a full year…. again. Most people will have moved on from this game by then.. and so will I. But hey, still Horizon Forbidden West, Thor Ragnarok and Trails from Zero to look forward too.
I’m fine with delays if it leads to a great game. Far rather wait than have buggy rubbish, which seems to be the norm these days.
Please be good, please be good, please be good
@Mauzuri You say "they can’t afford to delay the game" yet delayed games still sell well. It’s the ones that release early and full of bugs that end up losing big time financially.
to be fair – it seems like most games end up in trouble at some stage of development
I trust Stand Down Media’s reporting.
I have a bad feeling about this. I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up being cancelled or in development hell for years on end.
That isn’t good news. Either way I wouldn’t have minded if they delayed it another year or two. The stakes are too high. People have high expectations for a HP game, myself included. It needs to be good. It can’t be a half-arsed game, so hopefully they take (and get) all the time they need.
I hope the end product is good, I want a great single player harry potter rpg
@DrJames Yup, I don’t think I ever heard a games that have no problems in their development lol.
As much as I want this game to come out soon, I would rather have it delayed and be great than rushed and be terrible.
Something of this creativity probably won’t be pitched again if the game flops.
Plus my backlog of games appreciates the time in between new purchases.
A game takes its time as it should and suddenly all hell breaks loose. Good it’s delayed.
I had a feeling this wasn’t gonna be a surface level game like most games nowadays and I’ll keep that faith for this one.
People forget WB released Arkham Knight. I find that game more of an achievement than Horizon and infinitely more of achievement than Spider-Man. There, I said it lol.
Impressive and flushed out games is what WB does, even if I didn’t like the Mordor games
It’s a tricky one…though given WB’s record for microtransactions let’s hope the delays aren’t down to "how much live-service/NFT’s can we cram in?!" 🤔
Then again,according to a certain PC/Xbox "games reviewer"/channel,it was a Microsoft "exclusive",(& Xbox owned Bioware,& Sony didn’t have any good games coming out),so guess that’s why its disappeared of the PS5 radar,being a "dead console walking"!, supposedly!!😋😂🙄
@Eldritch (I feel like I’m subconsciously looking for a fight, this is my second controversial comment today lol)
"@Mauzuri You say "they can’t afford to delay the game" yet delayed games still sell well. It’s the ones that release early and full of bugs that end up losing big time financially." They lose online people respect, but that doesn’t mean they suffer financially, heck Cyberpunk 2077 made money:
Yeah, fair enough. I just really hope they don’t delay it again for a full YEAR.. that would be absolutely horrendous and, quite frankly, ridiculous. I don’t mind delays, but we’ve already been waiting more than a year at this point. I don’t want to wait another two or three years tbh.
this is ok…. my 2022 schedule is jam packed so this falling to 2023 is totally ok with me
I’d be disappointed about it being delayed, but honestly I just want the developer and publisher to be transparent about the state of the game. Two weeks ago there were rumors the game is closer to release than expected and it was reported that the game was in the process of localization. Today, it’s reported the game could be in trouble. Which one is it? This is a time where there’s contrasting rumors, so just come out and tell us what’s going on, if only so we can temper expectations.
I think it puts an uneccessarily negative spin on the whole issue of it being delayed by saying it’s in trouble. Whilst a delay isn’t ideal purely from an impatient gamer’s point of view, it’s totally preferable to it being released unready; all publishers and devs should delay any game that isn’t going to meet standards before it’s scheduled to go gold, be encouraged to do so, and given credit for it.
We should be wary of how we present news like this as language that skewers towards a delay equating to being a problem is going to potentially increase the pressure on the devs from all sides to their detriment.
@Mauzuri Hey, I didn’t say you’re wrong, I would be a damn fool if I did. Sorry for @ing you, I quoted the other person who @ed you lol. I’m with you, delaying again will kill some hype (but I’m not against them delaying the game, don’t want another cyberpunk)
Edit: The user above me (“integrity”) replied to you unwarily lol
@Bismarck I was wondering this earlier myself. I’m expecting it to definitely be designed with a younger audience in mind. The visuals look a little bit cartoonish even.
There’s nothing wrong with that of course.
@Shepherd_Tallon @Bismarck nailing down a target audience for a game like this seems like an impossible task and I do wonder if it’s a major contributing factor to the delays.
Producer: “Hey guys we’re ready to go gold just as soon as we get back the last report from QA”
QA: “Play test items that must be changed before release: HIGH PRIORITY: It’s Levi-o-sa, not Levios-aa”
Producer: “Well there goes chapter 4, we need to redesign it…we’re not going to make Holiday, guys….”
It was always going to be too ambitious for its own good. Never mind the fact HP is a bit of a poisoned chalice these days. It’s the sort of game that does get cancelled quietly after not being shown for a couple years but this looked relatively far along in that trailer.
Don’t worry gang they’re just figuring out the most pro-consumer way to monetize the s*** out of it!
@lolwhatno Of course they made money, because no-one knew what was coming. Did they make as much money as they could’ve? Heck no. The game was pulled from multiple stores, there’s the lawsuits, the pee’d off share holders, the amount of extra staff to pay to fix the mess. The delays to whatever project was coming next, the inevitable wariness of sales in the future, the extra money that’ll now be needed to mend bridges with their annoyed userbase. I could go on but what’s the point.
If they’d waited and released a fixed game they’d have had a few annoyed people but a far far bigger amount of revenue sat in their respective bank accounts. And all without a guilty conscience.
@Bismarck have you tried the books, they are miles better then the movies
@PlayNation5 if true about GTA then playstation deal 1mil each month for gta online be extended unless the launch of gta online separate stil on schedule means stil be free on ps5 for 1st 3 months
@Earthbound28 I can’t think of a book that isn’t 😊
@PlayNation5 you forgot to put “Expanded and Enhanced” edition in quotes
honestly i don’t have high hopes for this any more.
@Integrity you ain’t wrong
It’s always better they delay a game if it needs it. If it is in a dev hole they will need to considerer the high value of the property. It can take years to recover good will and with HP if they burnt the current market it would need to hold off for a generation. It’s not like this was going to be the only thing out there to play
For any dev reading this: please always prioritise quality over speed of release. There is no shortage of games to play. I couldn’t care less if Hogwarts Legacy is released in ‘22, ‘23 or ‘24. Whenever it arrives, if it is good, it’ll be a day 1 for me, plus dlcs. If it is bad, I simply won’t touch it.
I literally jinxed this and @get2sammyb called me out in a previous article. Doh!
@itsfoz Curse you!
Just such a negative, controversial air around this franchise these days for a handful of reasons. I feel bad for the fans. That being said, I hope the devs aren’t going to get the shaft as a result. When games enter into uncertain development waters, I immediately think of the people working hard to bring compelling software to life. Here is hoping they are taken care of well before WB, JKR, etc.
Why couldn’t this news had been aboyt ANY other big game this year besidesthis one. Its literally the only game I was looking forward this year. If this gets cancelled I’d be hella pissed!
I guess we’ll see. Colin Moriarty is known to say whatever random thought enters his head.
Oh no. Oh no. Oh no no no no.
Which episode of Sacred Symbols was this discussed on? I can’t find the episode and time code. Just finished listening to the one posted on the 17th and it wasn’t on there.
Shame, looked like it could be fun
@PlayNation5 I don’t understand what could cause that game to be delayed 😭😭
Development hell seems to be the norm these days.
@Mauzuri You still think GOW is this year? I am thinking that game is going to be delayed more than the year people were thought was happening. Now from the original announced 2021 to sometime 2023. Hope I am wrong but Sony not even saying 2022 at this point, which would be a year delay, leads me to believe it is a Spring 2023 game.
