The Creators of AI-Driven "Aim Bot" Shut Down After Activision Gets In Touch

A new type of auto aim cheat that relies on machine learning to kill opponents of the cheater. This was done using a video stream from the player's monitor, and could thus be used on both console and PC. However, the developer User Vision seems to have made a little too much of a fuss, because their website has now been replaced with a message saying that they are shutting down, while at the same time taking down all the videos that marketed the cheat. In the notice, "User101" states that t

Gabe Newell: The Price of Steam Deck Is Aggressive

After months of rumors and speculation, Valve finally unveiled its laptop gaming PC named Steam Deck. It is an AMD-powered device in the same shape as a Nintendo Switch and with the same price range. When the pre-orders started, the cheapest variant cost 419 euros. But while Nintendo seems to be increasing its profit margin, it seems that Valve is best able to recoup the costs - Gabe Newell calls the pricing "painful" in an interview with IGN. Sony and Microsoft also sell their gaming machi

Activision Blizzard's Shareholders Approve $155 Million For Kotick, Despite Protests

Activision Blizzard's shareholders have agreed to a compensation package for the company's CEO Bobby Kotick. The proposal means that the longtime CEO will receive $155 million, unknown for how long. The company have received harsh criticism from CtW Investment Group, which believes that the remuneration is unreasonably high. But the proposal was voted through by a narrow majority - 54 percent of shareholders said yes.  That is less than in last year's vote when 56.8 percent voted yes. But b

Sea of Thieves music released on colorful vinyl

One of the best things about Sea of Thieves is undoubtedly the wonderful soundtrack composed by Robin Beanland (Jet Force Gemini, original Killer Instinct, Conker's Bad Fur Day), which really sets a good pirate mood.

Judge stops Fortnite from Apple products

A U.S. federal judge has ruled that Apple does not have to allow "Fortnite" to return to the App Store. Apple is arguing with "Fortnite" creator Epic Games about the payment model in games released on Apple platforms, where Epic thinks Apple requires an unreasonably large portion of the pie, and believes that Apple has a form of monopoly position. Epic has requested that "Fortnite" be made available again in Apple's digital store until the conflict is settled in court, whose negotiatio

EA made nearly $1 billion in micro-transactions - In three months

EA just announced how much money they raised during last year's final quarter. Not entirely unexpectedly, they made some money selling games like FIFA 20 and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order during the Christmas trade.

In total, EA raised $ 1.593 billion during this quarter, with $ 361 million of them being profit. Of these $ 1,593 billion, $ 993 million was withdrawn

NVIDIA researchers have come up with some new artificial intelligence (AI) technology that can help fill in the blanks with respect to images that have either been corrupted or otherwise having missing details. With a team lead by NVIDIA’s Guilin Liu, missing pixels can be quickly reclaimed with stunning results. This process, which NVIDIA calls image inpainting, can be used not only for restoring missing image pixels, but also for removing an unwanted object from a scene and filling it bac
