Work on Metal Gear Solid Movie Still In Progress
Since 2014, director Jordon Vot-Roberts has been filming Metal Gear Solid. On the day of the release of the trailer for "Black Widow", he shared his observations on Twitter and noticed that some moments of the film are too similar to Metal Gear Solid 3. Allegedly, Natasha Romanova very much resembles the Boss from the third part, and her battles are generally a tracing of technology battlefield CQC.
As a director, he understands that this is just a coincidence, but as a loyal fan of Metal Gear Solid - he can not help but notice it. But fan observations alone were not enough, and he used them as an excuse to talk about the current state of his film. The script team has already given him the script, and it is full of kojiv and sura. He will also have a meeting with a certain actor. He did not give his name.
The actor Oscar Azeik, familiar to you from the role of Poe Dameron from the new Star Wars, was called for the role of Solid. The director then said that he did not mind, but all this is just talk. The real casting for the picture is yet to come.
PlayStation is the best-selling console in history
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the first PlayStation, Sony announced that their console was included in the Guinness Book of World Records as the best-selling console brand in history.
Thus, from December 1994 to November 2019, 450,190,000 PlayStation consoles were sold.
On this occasion, on December 3, a conference dedicated to the company's achievements was held in Tokyo, which was attended by Sony CEO Dim Ryan and former Sony CEO Ken Kutaragi, thanks to whom the whole world saw the first curling iron.

The cover of the Resident Evil 3 remake was found online
We have already anticipated more than once what the remake of Resident Evil 3 will be. After all, this is one of those games, the announcement of which did not take place, but we already understood what was what. This time we finally have a bigger drain. The Gamstat website found the cover of the new part of the remake on the PlayStation Network.
The cover features the updated Jill Valentine, Carlos Oliver and Nemesis. The most famous antagonist in the Resident Evil series has been the most transformed and an even uglier beast than it was before.
According to available information, Capcom will arrive at Jump Festa 2020 with one unannounced title. In addition, let's not forget that The Game Awards 2019 is close, where an announcement is also possible. It will be held at night from 12 to 13 December
New Cyberpunk 2077 artbook shows game map
Amazon now has the opportunity to pre-order a special artbook for Cyberpunk 2077. The fact that this is cool news goes without saying. Another thing is remarkable. The cover featured a map of Knight City, which had not been shown to us until now.
Judging by the fact that the top of the book is cropped, this is only a part of the map and it is much larger. CDPR said that the map in Cyberpunk 2077 will be smaller than in The Witcher, although it is denser on quests, but it is unlikely that it is that small. Visually, we can assume that a whole area is cut off from above.
The World of Cyberpunk Special Edition includes not only the artbook, but also other fan-made trivia such as temporary tattoos, graffiti dust jacket, city map and Silverhand poster.

Microsoft is about to release a budget version of the next console
Last year, there were rumors on the Internet that Microsoft was going to release two consoles at once: a budget version and a more expensive version. Following the announcement of Project Scarlett, the company said it only deals with it. But according to the leaks of the editor of Kotaku Jason Schreyer, we will still see two consoles at once.
According to Schreyer, he talked to 4 friends from the company, they told him that Lockhar, the so-called budget version of Project Scarlett, will be without a drive and is digital-oriented. This will force developers to adapt to both console formats, which can be difficult. The console will be promoted using the Project xCloud cloud service and Xbox Game Pass.
In terms of power, it can be compared to the PS4 Pro, but like Project Scarlett and PS5 it will have an SSD and a faster processor. According to the company's standards, the main set-top box should pull out 4K and 60fps, and the budget one - 1440p and 60fps.
Regarding Project Scarlett and PS5, Schreyer writes the following:
