You’ve seen Miles Morales as a brick, now gamers have discovered that you can play as a patio heater, called “Spider-Lamp”. Yes, players still have access to all of Spider-Man’s powers when in this form, including being able to launch himself into the air and web sling around the city. If you get far enough, the character also gains Venom Blast (the ability to incapacitate his enemies with electricity), Camouflage (temporary invisibility), and Mega Venom Blast (the ability to attack multiple nearby enemies with his venom blast).

Most comic book fans already know that Miles Morales was bitten by a genetically-enhanced spider and gained powers similar to Peter Parker’s. Spider-Man: Miles Morales takes place a year after the first game’s conclusion, a time when Morales has trained under Parker and has fully integrated himself into the role of a Spider-Man, though he has yet to gain the experience. One thing the character may not have expected is to become Spider-Brick. Read more to see this bizarre bug discovered in the game.
Sony’s PlayStation 5 is set to launch tomorrow (Nov. 12), so it’s only natural for gamers to pit it against its rival, the newly-released Xbox Series X. Both are the most powerful game consoles currently on the market, but there are some differences. To show them, Digital Foundry compared Devil May Cry V: Special Edition on both in a head-to-head battle. In Normal mode, both can run the game at a native 4K with an unlocked frame rate with just minor dips below 60fps. Read more for the video and additional information.
What better game to showcase the PlayStation 5’s power than Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man: Miles Morales, especially with the new Into the Spider-Verse suit they just revealed. Those who pre-order the game will be able to use this suit on launch day, while others will need to wait before it’s unlocked. If you happened to watch the film, you’ll realize that the lower frame rate on Miles’ movements in-game match its disjointed look, all done purposely to show this character’s inexperience.

Sony’s PlayStation 5 is set to hit stores on November 12th, and some gamers who decided to pass on this first version are waiting for a slim model, like this one by Jermaine Smit. Thanks to its slimmer profile, this console would easily fit into a TV cabinet or on smaller shelves. How long do we have to wait to see a PS5 Slim? Well, the PlayStation 4 was originally released on November 22, 2013 and the PS4 Slim didn’t hit stores until September 15, 2016, so it may be a while. On the bright side, the latter was $100 less than the original console. Read more for a video and additional pictures.

Officially released on September 17, 2013, Grand Theft Auto V has come a long way, thanks to countless modders, and the latest one previews what the PS5 as well as Xbox Series X versions could look like. It uses OreoShaman’s Realism Beyond Graphics MOD 1.0.2 and transforms the game into a whole new experience, which could possibly be made better when played in virtual reality. Since both next-generation consoles have ray-tracing capabilities, these graphics shouldn’t be too far off. Read more for the video and additional information.

Yasuhiro Ootori, Vice President of mechanical and hardware design at Sony Interactive Entertainment, wanted to give gamers an up-close look at the PlayStation 5 ahead of its release. So, he decided to take a production unit apart, and one thing to note is that switching between vertical or horizontal modes isn’t a push of a button type deal, but rather somewhat complex. As you’re about to see, there’s a special mechanism that needs to be attached or detached from the base of the console. Read more for the video and additional information.
