About two months prior to its adjusted release date, we finally get a very good look at the Ghost of Tsushima gameplay.
In this 18-minute gameplay demo, we’re shown little bits of exploration, combat, and how you can customize Jin to match your style of play. That includes his outfits which isn’t just pure cosmetics. Sucker Punch Studies, the game’s developer, says each get-up corresponds to certain play styles and it’s up to you to create your own build.
The combat is pretty interesting. It’s not a mindless hack-and-slash. Instead, it has more in common with FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice approach of precision combat. You need to time your blocks, parries, and slashes to be effective.
Lastly, the Ghost of Tsushima gameplay demo also showcases a Samurai Cinema mode which turns the game into desaturates the game into black and white, giving you the feel of a classic samurai flick.
Concept Nyx: Dell working on intelligent game controller
The future of gaming
Dell Technologies is working on an all-in-one intelligent game controller that shall interconnect devices and screens while providing a whole different level of gaming experience.
Called the Concept Nyx game controller, Dell’s project aims to provide easy access to gaming libraries across multiple devices and screens for effortless sessions at home.
Here’s what we know so far about Concept Nyx:
To kick things off, the design-making process took lots of turns. Developers explored adding tons of buttons, attachments, sensors, and more.
This has led to the potential final design that gives users personalized settings at their fingertips. It’s composed of the following parts:
- Dual thumb control wheels
- Light ring
- Adaptive thumbstick
- Left and right scroll bumpers
- Fingerprint sensor in the middle
- Left and right adaptive triggers (underneath)
- Shift buttons (underneath)
The fingerprint reader detects who is using the controller specifically, to be able to load their games right where they left off instantly.
Dell also prioritized the device’s haptics. They come with self-adjusting variable resistance thumbsticks that can be tailored to user preferences and specific game play.
PC gaming musts have also been included in the concept. Shift buttons underneath the controller allow for more front button options, mimicking the shift combos from PC keyboards.
The innovative scroll wheels give users an easier time to navigate and select weapons, while the intelligent touchpad allows for instant access to customizable controls in-game, without having to toggle a menu screen which disrupts your real-time gaming view.

The era of tug-of-wars at home may soon be over as well. The Concept Nyx controller is being designed to accommodate simultaneous gaming.
For instance, while connected on two different headsets, two separate Concept Nyx controllers may be used to play two different games on a split screen.
Streaming to other devices and screens and wi-fi connectivity are also some of the capabilities of the controller by simply pulling the thumbstick.
All these factors have been the foundation for the development of the Concept Nyx’s intelligent edge ecosystem beyond gaming.
