Globe is going all-in when it comes to their games and esports efforts in 2022, launching an advocacy campaign, improved data promos, and an all-new gaming platform, Globe Gamer Grounds.

With millions of Filipinos playing online games on their mobiles, PCs, and consoles, Globe has launched the Game Well-Played to foster camaraderie among gamers.

This campaign kicked off with the #KakalaroKoYanWithGlobe movement, encouraging everyone to share the benefits gaming has brought in their everyday lives to break the stereotype.

Gamers may post their answers to the question “Ano nga ba ang napapala ko sa paglalaro” (What do I get from gaming in the first place?) on social media using the campaign hashtag.

A new digital film produced by Globe, Good Son, can now be streamed by clicking here. The narrative focuses on how the player draws support from his gaming community to help his family’s needs.

Improved GoPLAY offers

To make gaming more accessible, Globe has also improved its Go+ offers with GoPLAY.

With the promo focused on popular games, subscribers may enjoy playing the following games, without having to worry about running out of data:

  • Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB)
  • PUBG Mobile
  • Call of Duty Mobile (CODM)
  • League of Legends Wild Rift
  • Valorant
  • Legends of Runeterra

Globe has also recently added Genshin Impact and Pokemon Unite to its roster for GoPLAY.

Globe Gamer Grounds

Lastly, Globe has partnered with leading tech solutions companies to bring Globe Gamer Grounds live.

It will be an all-in-one gaming platform which welcomes all gamers, from newbies to pros.

The platform will enable users to connect with friends, play together, buy upgrades for characters, and more.

PSVR2 is launching with over 20 major games

Horizon VR game still headlines

Samsung had a lot to say during its latest investors meeting. Besides unveiling its general plans for the future, the company also teased the devices that are coming in the near future. For a while now, that future lineup includes the PSVR2. If you were thinking of buying the virtual reality wearable for yourself, Sony has good news for you. The PSVR2 will have over 20 major titles on launch.

Naturally, if you buy a pricey piece of hardware, you usually want it to come with a good set of ways to use it. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case with new gaming devices. For example, the PlayStation 5, despite being out for almost two years, still doesn’t have the most expansive lineup of games that every gamer must play.

Thankfully, the PSVR2 won’t follow in the same, sparse footsteps of the gaming console. According to the meeting (via Video Games Chronicle), the wearable will launch with over 20 first- and third-party games. The headliner is still Call of the Mountain set in the Horizon universe, of course. Unfortunately, the presentation didn’t reveal any other games in the lineup.

If anything, virtual reality gaming has been growing for a while now. In recent history, the market has seen notable titles like Half-Life: Alyx and Beat Saber.

After facing a potential delay, the PSVR2 is expected to launch sometime next year.

Sony confirms ‘Horizon’ and ‘God of War’ shows are coming

And a Gran Turismo show

After years of terrible video game adaptations, the entertainment industry just can’t get enough of them in the past year or so. Shows and films based on popular video game titles are setting the world on fire. If Sony’s latest investor’s meeting is anything to go by, it looks like we’re not done with the genre. Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War are reportedly getting TV series soon.

Sony had a lot to say during its latest meeting. However, amid all the announcements, the general implication was simple enough to understand. The company wants to expand and grow its branches outside of console gaming. That plan includes adapting more of its exclusive properties into television.

Reported by analyst David Gibson on Twitter (via IGN), Sony has officially confirmed development for a Horizon series on Netflix, a God of War series on Amazon, and a currently untethered Gran Turismo series.

Unfortunately, the presentation did not reveal any other details for the upcoming shows. Plot and casting details are still an unknown.

All three titles, especially Horizon and God of War, are part of Sony’s prized possessions. An adaptation for any of these titles is huge. However, it’s always a hit. Most recently, Sony allowed an Uncharted film to show in theaters, and the response was… mixed. While the sheer number of video game adaptations are impressive, their quality is definitely all over the place for now.

Sony might stop releasing PlayStation 4 games by 2025

More games for PC and mobile

Do you have a PlayStation 5 already? Despite being more than a year since its launch, the new console practically flies off from the shelves and into the hands of lucky buyers (less likely) or scalpers (more likely). However, based on Sony’s current plans, you might want to claw a bit deeper for one. Sony might stop releasing PlayStation 4 games by 2025.

Recently, Sony hosted a business briefing for its investors. Reported by Video Games Chronicle, company president Jim Ryan shared what the PlayStation has in store for the future. More conclusively, Ryan stated that they have plans to bump up releases for both PC and mobile platforms. By 2025, around half of Sony’s game releases will launch for those two platforms.

In the past, Sony was notoriously against releasing its exclusive games for the PC. However, the company recently reversed its stance by porting some of its titles, including Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War. With its latest plans, Sony is hugely diversifying its portfolio.

As you might have noticed from above, that’s not the only thing they hinted at. Though Ryan did not speak much about it, the graphic also depicts a stark lack of PlayStation 4 titles coming out in 2025. The year will see only PlayStation 5, PC, and mobile releases, potentially signaling the end of the PS4 era.
