The Last of Us Part 2: One of the most profitable PlayStation games.

The Last of Us Part 2 turns out to have been a good investment for Sony! There are only two PlayStation games that have been more profitable. In other news this N8W8: Skyward Sword remaster found online, Summer Games Done Quick 2020 has started, a PSVR headset for PS5 and the release date of NBA 2K21 demo.

The Last of Us Part 2 brings in a lot of money for Sony. In terms of gross profit, the game only has to put up with two other PlayStation 4 titles!

The Last of Us Part 2 turns out to have been a great investment for Sony! We’ll take a look at the American figures (from NPD Group, via VGC). These figures show that there are only two PlayStation games that have yielded more profit, namely: Marvel’s Spider-Man and God of War. It must of course be said that those games have been out much longer. So it could just be that The Last of Us Part 2 catches up with them!

We already knew that the Naughty Dog game has had an unprecedented good release, both in terms of physical and digital sales. For example, the developer previously announced that over 4 million copies of The Last of Us Part 2 were sold in the first weekend. So it actually makes sense that the game also yields a lot of money!

Yet TLOU 2 (in America) is not even the best-selling game of 2020… Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare did even better (at least in terms of sales)!

Zelda: Skyward Sword for Switch can be found on Amazon UK

Could a Switch remake of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword be in the works? If we go by the listing on Amazon UK, the answer could just be affirmative!

Amazon UK has popped a page for a Switch version of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword online! Before you start cheering, the Guardian should tell you (via Nintendo Everything) that the page has no further details about the game. Even a release date is missing …

Wishful thinking from Amazon UK? An accidentally published placeholder? Or would the retailers secretly know more? In any case, it wouldn’t be the first time that an online store accidentally revealed the arrival of a game …

We will keep you informed!

Summer Games Done Quick 2020 has started

Hoera! Summer Games Done Quick is on! That means we can spend a week watching speedrunners enjoy their (and our!) Favorite games.

Games Done Quick is finally back! The summer edition was previously postponed: from June to August. Of course, that had everything to do with the coronavirus outbreak. For the same reason, Summer Games Done Quick has also been renamed a fully online event this time. However, that shouldn’t spoil the fun: from now on you can check all kinds of speedruns for a week via this channel.

Games Done Quick organized a Corona Relief Done Quick earlier this year. More than $ 400,000 was raised with this. And last January, even more than $ 3 million was raised for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. This time, all proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders.

Summer Games Done Quick 2020 lasts a week and will therefore close on Sunday 23 August. Curious which games you can check? Here you will find the full streaming schedule.

Comic moment

Is Sony working on a new PSVR headset for PlayStation 5?

The PS5 gets its own PSVR headset! At least, we deduce that cautiously from information in the vacancy of Sony asking for a VR developer.

A recent vacancy (via UploadVR) seems to indicate that its own VR glasses are in the works for the PS5. The problem is that the vacancy is in Japanese and the Guardian does not exactly speak that language… What is clear is that the new employee will be involved in the development of head-mounted display for the next generation of VR. Of course, this kind of implies that we will get an improved version of the PSVR, which is specially designed for the PS5.

Little or nothing has been announced about a new PSVR for the PS5 to date. We do know that at least a number of PS5 games will be playable with VR glasses, such as Hitman 3.

Hopefully more news soon!
