Persija Esports Withdraws from PUBG Mobile Championship, What’s the Fate of the Players?

Persija Esports has just announced surprising news. For now they will no longer appear in the competitive PUBG Mobile scene.

“With the end of PMGC 2023 Turkiye, Persija Esports and Evos Esports have decided to withdraw from the PUBGM competitive scene and not continue collaborating in the PUBGM division,” wrote Persija Esports, quoted by Game Station from its official statement on Instagram, Thursday (28/12/2023) .

This news came not long after Evos Esports also said they were parting ways with them. It’s just that it’s still not known for certain what the real reason is that the two are no longer together.

“Evos announced that it will not continue collaborating with Persija Esports in developing the PUBGM team. This is not the end of the story, but rather a short break to build a stronger foundation in the future,” wrote Evos Esports.

Unfortunately, this announcement came after negative issues hit the players. Yes, recently there has been a lot of discussion among esports activists in the country, regarding players who have not received prize money from the official PUBG Mobile tournament.

However, it is not certain whether their separation was due to this or other factors. The reason is that both parties, neither Persija Esports nor Evos Esports, have provided a detailed statement regarding the reasons for the disbandment of this team.

But apart from this, what about the fate of the players? Meanwhile, only the White Tiger has revealed the status of his PUBG Mobile roster. They conveyed this via their official Instagram on December 20.

“Thank you to Coach Sinyo, Redface and Linx for their hard work and dedication to Evos,” wrote Evos Esports.

Meanwhile, the status of PJEV players is still gray. Because this team has not yet spoken out regarding the fate of Zuxxy, Luxxy and others like Evos Esports did.

Even so, Persija Esports’ journey in the competitive scene does not stop. They said that in the future they would carry out various innovations and collaborations.

“Persija Esports will also expand to other game lines/divisions as part of our vision and mission to continue to participate and excel and make a positive contribution to the esports ecosystem in Indonesia,” concluded Persija Esports.

This is a list of PlayStation games that are selling well on PC

Even though Sony has never revealed data regarding PlayStation games that have been remastered for PC, it was recently revealed that these games are selling well on PC.

This information comes from leaked data that spread as a result of the ransomware attack on Insomniac Games. Of the 1TB of data spread around, one of them is the financial report of the game developer who is part of PlayStation Studios.

From one of the presentation slides distributed, it was revealed that the game, which was previously exclusive to PlayStation, also had successful sales when it was re-released on PC.

For example, Horizon Zero Dawn, which was released for PC in August 2020, or three years after it was first released for PlayStation. As of February 2023, the game has sold 3.3 million copies on Steam. That’s quite big for a game that is three years old.

What If All The Games Of PS, Can Be Play In PC ?

Then there is Days Gone which was brought to PC in May 2021 and God of War which was released on PC in January 2022. As of February 2023, the two games have sold 1.7 million copies and 2.5 million copies respectively.

It was also revealed that Spider-Man Remastered almost caught up with Days Gone’s sales in just six months. However, this is certainly not strange, because the Spider-Man game series has sold 33 million copies on PlayStation (and Days Gone only 5.8 million copies).

But of course there are also game series that were not successful when re-released on PC. For example, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure, which sold less than 500 thousand copies. In fact, Sackboy only sold 63 thousand copies.

The weak sales of this series of games can be caused by many factors. For example, some of them are not very well known and the market preference is to wait for the presence of exclusive AAA games. For example, Gran Turismo will probably explode if it is re-released for PC.

Raffi Ahmad and Baim Wong duel on Mendadak FF, who wins?

Rans Entertainment today, Friday (22/12/2023), is holding an esports competition entitled Mendadak FF. The event was filled with battles between several artists, cosplayers, creators, comedians and pro players in playing the game made by Garena, namely Free Fire.

The event was held at Studio Sepat 72, Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta. A total of 16 players were divided into two teams, including Frost led by Raffi Ahmad and Fire led by Baim Wong.

Raffi’s team consists of Marshel Widianto (Komika), Jinan (Ex JKT48 Member), Rasyah Rasyid (Pro Player & Content Creator), El Rumi, Praz Teguh (Komika), Cindy Gulla (Ex JKT48 Member), and Punipun (Cosplayer).

Meanwhile, the Baim Wong team is staffed by Angie Marcheria (Content Creator), Jesslyn (Ex JKT48 Member), Aldi TV (Content Creator), Aldi Taher (Celebrity), Ummi Quary (Comedian), Ayana (Ex JKT48 Member), and Kameaam (Cosplayer). ).

This is different from Free Fire competitions in general, considering that Sudden FF starts immediately from the semifinals using the best of 3 (Bo3) format. However, here they are not playing in battle royale mode, but in clash squad mode.

So the battle is four vs four in one arena. Not 60 players gathered in one map, and trying to be the only team that survives until the end of the match.

So, the winner in the semi-final round has the right to advance to the grand final round to compete for the championship title. Who do you think will be the winner, is Raffi’s team or Baim’s team?

The sudden excitement of Free Fire was also enlivened by Tretan Muslim, Coki Pardede, and Mayden as casters. For those who are curious, you can watch the live broadcast on YouTube Rans Entertainment.

You must know about Paw Rumble, a game developed by Telkom which is praised by Google Play

Games made by the nation’s children are increasingly being recognized. This can be seen from the success of Indigo Game as Telkom’s incubator which successfully delivered its game, Paw Rumble, to the Google Play Best Game of 2023 award.

Paw Rumble won the Best Made in Indonesia category on Google Play Best Game of 2023, because it was considered to be the best innovation made by a local developer and could be enjoyed globally.

Paw Rumble is a 4 person online multiplayer game that allows players to enjoy short, fun game time with others. This game is filled with simple missions to provide a fun game without taking up too much time.

Winning the Google award, Paw Rumble is proof of the success of Telkom’s end-to-end support through the incubation program from Indigo Game. This game was developed by GrinSmile Studio and launched on July 12 2023 and then published by Nuon Games.

In publishing it, Nuon Games also collaborated with Dunia Games from Telkomsel as a co-publisher, so that it could reach a wider market, especially in Indonesia. Nuon Games is part of PT Nuon Digital Indonesia as a subsidiary of Telkom which operates in the digital entertainment content sector.

The First Indonesian Game To Enter The Google Play Awards

“This shows that local Indonesian games have great potential to shine on the world stage. Telkom is committed to continuing to support and facilitate local game developers so they can produce innovative and competitive games, so they can continue to penetrate the global games industry,” said the CEO of Nuon Digital Indonesia Aris Sudewo in his written statement, Wednesday (20/12/2023).

For information, GrinSmile Studio is a game developer assisted by Indigo Game in the second generation, or since 2020. Thanks to this development, this game studio from Surabaya, East Java, has also succeeded in winning the Best Mobile Game award at the prestigious Indonesia Game Awards event which was held during the event. Game Developer eXchange (IGDX) 2023.

GrinSmile Studio CEO Narendra Yogha Prathama said, Indigo Game and Nuon Games have provided enormous support and assistance in developing the Paw Rumble game in winning the Google Play Best Game of 2023 award.

“This award is a motivation for us to continue to innovate and produce games that are useful and entertaining for the community,” said Narendra.

Grahadea Kusuf, Chair of Startup Bandung, when asked for his comments regarding this success, admitted that he was happy to hear the news that GrinSmile Studio and Nuon Games had achieved.

“This proves that domestic game developers are competitive and full of talent, as well as proving that the concept of incubation by large companies for startups is still very necessary,” he said.

According to Dea, the transfer of knowledge, connections, experience and capital from large companies through the incubator clearly continues to provide added value. Even though startups excel in innovation and mastering technology, they generally have limitations around connections, experience and capital. This is where the role of incubators is as a solution that helps startups be more focused and mature quickly through incubation programs.

Since being founded in 2019, Indigo Game, which is under the umbrella brand Leap Telkom Digital, has incubated and accelerated more than 200 startups and local game developers in Indonesia. Indigo Game’s incubation program focuses on increasing innovation, creativity and quality of Indonesian game studios.

Not only is Indigo Game an incubator, Leap Telkom Digital also provides an umbrella for various digital products and services from Telkom to create a competitive nation and accelerate the implementation of an even digital ecosystem in Indonesia.

Very cool! Indonesian Gamer Makes Borobudur Temple in Minecraft in 100 Hours

It’s really crazy, a man spent up to 100 hours making Borobudur Temple. So how did he do it?

This story comes from a gamer and creator from Indonesia. He is known as Baww.

His name started to attract public attention after the video went viral. So last year, he created content on YouTube about how much fun he had making Borobudur Temple in Minecraft Survival.

Baww did this for 100 hours, of which 10 hours were spent grinding (the process of collecting goods/items), and 90 hours were used to build the temple.

He said that the production was divided into three stages. First, make the outline, second, place the blocks, and finally do the detailing.

To complete the first stage, Baww takes up to 10 hours. Then entering the second stage, he managed to complete the foot of the temple in 27 hours and placed the blocks in the middle for up to 12 hours.

Continue to the final stage, namely detailing. Here Baww’s work is more difficult, because there is a lot to make, such as stairs, ornaments, stupas and other details.

According to him, the most complicated part was making the temple wall ornaments. Even though it only takes 15 minutes, he has to make a very large amount.

Nevertheless, Baww managed to complete what he had started alone. After 90 hours of struggling with many blocks, he succeeded in building Borobudur Temple.

At the end of the video, Baww said that this was dedicated to Indonesia, which was celebrating its 77th birthday. Interestingly, this video only went viral in 2023.

The First Indonesian Gamers Makes One Of Miracle World

Many people are amazed by his skills. Not a few also appreciate his genius, in calculating every corner of the temple where the blocks will be installed.

After going viral, it turned out that Baww received an email from Borobudur Park. They appreciated his work, and gave the Creator free access to Bobobudur Temple for life.

For those who are curious about the manufacturing process, you can watch it directly on the Baww YouTube channel. Currently, the almost 18 minute video has been watched 3.7 million times, received 219 thousand likes and 11,386 comments.

A little information, coincidentally the Game Station team has asked Baww for permission to use information regarding the construction of Borobudur Temple via its official Twitter account. However, until this news was published, Baww had not responded.

Sony Sells 50 Million PS5 Units in 3 Years, Almost Matching PS4 Record

Sony managed to sell 50 million PS5 units. This mark was achieved in three years since the fifth generation game console was launched at the end of 2020.

Last July, Sony announced that it had sold 40 million PS5 units. This means that the Japanese technology giant managed to sell 10 million units during the second half of 2023, with the highest sales time in November.

PlayStation 5 sales almost equal the PS4, whose sales also reached 50 million units in three years. PS4 was released in 2013 and sold 50 million units in 2016.

But the PS5 took a week longer than the PS4 to reach sales of 50 million units. According to Financial Times data, PS5 took 161 weeks while PS4 took 160 weeks.

This achievement is quite impressive considering that initial PS5 sales were marred by supply chain problems in the midst of the pandemic, while PS4 sales did not experience similar problems.

The Era Of PS4 Is Over

The supply chain problems that haunt the PS5 will continue until 2022, making it difficult for many gamers to buy the console at normal prices on the market. Finally, in early January 2023, Sony announced that the PS5 shortage was over.

“We’re incredibly grateful to all the players who have joined the PS5 journey so far, and we’re thrilled this is the first holiday season since launch where we’ve had the consoles in full inventory — so anyone who wants to buy can get one,” said the President and Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan, as quoted from The Verge, Thursday (21/12/2023).

PS5 sales were also helped by the release of several popular games such as Spider-Man 2, Baldur’s Gate 3, and Alan Wake 2. Sony recently released a new version of the PS5 with thinner dimensions than the original version.

Sony also managed to win the console war with Microsoft this year. According to Ampere Analysis estimates, Sony managed to sell 22.5 million units throughout 2023 (up 65% from the previous year), while Microsoft sold 7.6 million Xbox Series S/X units, down 15% from 2022.

Mobile Legends Patch 1.8.44: Nana becomes OP

Mobile Legends Patch 1.8.44 has finally been officially released. Moonton has prepared various updates, from battlefield adjustments to buffed heroes.

“In this update, we continue to optimize and improve the gameplay of heroes that have been released for a long time. Meanwhile, you focus on the fighter experience in the exp lane,” said Moonton, quoted by Game Station from Mobile Legends in-game, Wednesday (20/12/2023 ).

In this patch, the developer adjusted fighter and tank heroes with high endurance, so they can use Revamp War Ax and Brute Force Breastplate as their main equipment. These two items have different benefits.

Revamp War Ax provides sufficient true damage. Meanwhile, the Brute Force Breastplate ensures balanced attack and defense.

“We hope that Revamp Equipment brings new colors to the fighter experience in the game,” he added.

But not only that, because as stated earlier, Moonton is also updating several of its heroes. Here there are more than five characters who are given status upgrades.

So what heroes get buffs? Let’s look at the brief description below:

1.Vexana

2.Nana

3.Balmond

4.Vale

5.Dyrroth

6.Barats

7.Alice

8.Lunox

9.Selena

Apart from that, there is also information about the arrival of a new hero named Cici – Buoyant Performer. Unfortunately, due to a few obstacles, this hero had to experience a release delay.

Previously it was scheduled that Cici would launch into the land of dawn on December 23 2023. But it seems that Mobile Legends fans have to be more patient, because Moonton is currently making adjustments.

“We will notify all players regarding the latest release date as soon as possible after this problem is fixed,” he concluded.

Minecraft Sells 300 Million Copies, Becoming the Best-Selling Game of All Time

Minecraft, one of the most popular games in the world, has just set a new record. This sandbox game has sold 300 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling games of all time.

This latest achievement was announced by developer Mojang Studios at the Minecraft Live event on Sunday (15/10). During the event, Mojang also revealed other interesting statistics, such as the average player making more than 700,000 cakes and 8.8 million pickaxes a day.

Mojang last revealed Minecraft sales figures in April 2021. At that time, this game had sold 238 million copies.

Mojang did not explain the distribution of Minecraft on each platform. So this figure of 300 million is a combination of sales on iOS, Android, PlayStation, Xbox, Windows, Nintendo Switch and other platforms since 2011.

Thanks to this achievement, Minecraft is moving further away from Grand Theft Auto V in second place, which has sold 185 million copies as of August 2023. But GTA V is considered newer because it was released in 2013.

However, these two games have not succeeded in beating Super Mario’s record, which has sold more than 800 million copies. But Super Mario is a huge franchise with more than 20 games in the Super Mario series.

Minecraft is the most popular game among children

Another game that is no less popular is Tetris. Even though it is considered retro, Tetris has apparently sold more than 520 million copies in various variations since the 1980s, as quoted from Gizmodo, Wednesday (18/10/2023).

But Tetris and Minecraft cannot be compared. This is because Tetris is a game series that has different mechanics and graphics in each version and platform, while the game is the same game on any platform.

Minecraft was first released by Mojang Studios in November 2011. However, an incomplete pre-release version has been available since 2009. Minecraft was then purchased by Microsoft in 2014 for USD 2.5 billion.

Even though it is more than a decade old, Minecraft remains popular among adult gamers and children. Even outside of games, Minecraft cannot be avoided because there is a lot of content and YouTube videos discussing this game. According to Google, YouTube videos related to that game have been viewed more than 1 trillion times.

Even though the sales figures are fantastic, the number of Minecraft players is still less than other games such as Fortnite. According to ActivePlayer.io data, Fortnite has a monthly active player count of between 220 million and 250 million, while Minecraft’s monthly player count at its peak was 182 million.
