GameStop Forecast Suggests Nintendo Switch Shortage Throughout This Year

GameStop Forecast Suggests Nintendo Switch Shortage Throughout This Year

Because of the extreme popularity of the new home/handheld Nintendo Switch console, it’s getting sold to an extent where the demand is becoming more than the production. Due to this fact, the video game retailer GameStop is expecting to run short of stock for the entire year.

In a post-earning conference call with the investors, GameStop chief operating officer Tony Bartel, stated that the Switch has made the best sales in many years and the demand for it is always on the rise. It seems they get sold out within a few hours from their arrival to the stores. Even after Nintendo, doubled the production of the Switch, it still doesn’t match the demands and is running short of supplies.

As a result, many gamers tried to import the console from abroad, making the global shortage even more. Neither the investors nor the retailers saw this coming. It was thought that the Switch would not have features, that would make it a good selling console like the Wii-U. Hence, lesser units were produced for the Switch. What turned out later, totally flabbergasted both parties.

Following this massive success, developers are trying to make games for the Switch, or make a handheld version of their previous games. Sooner or later, the Nintendo fans will up for a delight, with many unexpected games coming their way to this console.

Sony’s Update 4.50 Has Arrived With A “Boost”

Sony’s Update 4.50 Has Arrived With A “Boost”

Today, Sony has launched a major software update for Playstation 4. PS4 update 4.50 is now live with PS4 Pro Boost Mode and external hard drive support.

PS4 Pro Boost Mode

playstation-4-boost-mode

PS4 games needed to have updates to boost their performance on the PS4 pro. While some of the PS4 games had this option, many others didn’t. Once the update 4.50 is installed, the Boost Mode can be enabled in Settings>System. With this option, older games can achieve higher or more stable framerates and potentially even load faster on the PS4 Pro. Sony quoted,

This can provide a noticeable frame rate boost to some games with variable frame rates, and can provide frame rate stability for games that are programmed to run at 30 Hz or 60 Hz. Depending on the game, the increased CPU speed may also result in shorter load times.

PS4 external hard drive support

Any game or application can be installed on the external hard drive, with its storage capacity being 8TB. There a lot of models for the external hard drive, to choose from.

Apart from these two updates, voice chat via Remote Play on PC, Mac, and Xperia devices are available now.
