The Most Watched Game Trailer Isn’t GTA VI, But This Game

The GTA VI trailer which was recently released has indeed succeeded in attracting gamers’ attention. However, even though the number of viewers gathered is so large, in fact the video made by Rockstar is still inferior to the popularity of mobile games.

If you visit the Rockstar Games YouTube channel now, you can see the trailer for the latest GTA series, which has been watched 168 million times. This number is enough to overthrow the Minecraft trailer which was released 12 years ago.

Mojang as the developer of Minecraft, through its one minute video, has currently succeeded in getting 167 million views. But at that time it only placed it in second place, as the most watched video game trailer.

Unfortunately Rockstar is still not halfway there, to beat the most watched game trailer which was successfully snatched by Subway Surfers. Published in 2012, the trailer has been watched more than 361 million times, as quoted by Game Station from IGN, Thursday (18/1/2024).

Even so, it looks like the GTA VI trailer still has a big chance of winning the title. Because this game will only be officially released in 2025. Maybe when it actually launches, this opportunity can be realized.

Moreover, gamers are very enthusiastic about this new Rockstar game. Because after many rumors circulated, they finally confirmed that they would bring him in.

Meanwhile, Take-Two Interactive, which is in charge of publishing it, said that when it is released, GTA VI will not be available on PC. So gamers can only play it on PS5, Xbox Series

Very Sophisticated! PS5 Joystick Can Now Drive Afeela Electric Cars

Sony showed something extraordinary at the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, United States. Because the PS5 controller, namely DualSense, can apparently be used to drive Afeela car.

This sophistication was demonstrated directly by Izumi Kawanishi, Boss of Sony Honda Mobility. At that time he wanted to show off an electric car created by Sony and Honda, which was named Afeela.

The feature-rich DualSense controller remotely pilots Afeela to bring her to center stage. Then the headlights illuminated the dark stage, and the camera installed in the cabin proved that the vehicle did not have a hidden driver.

However, here Kawanishi immediately clarified that the sophistication of the DualSense that he showed was merely a technology demo. The aim is to show that the software can determine new functions and values, as reported by Game Station from Gamerant, Thursday (11/1/2024).

Apart from being able to drive with DualSense, Kawanishi also wants to highlight the artificial intelligence (AI) he embedded in Afeela. This technology can be used to help drive the car automatically.

Afeela The Car Control By PS5 Joystick

Not only that, Afeela is also equipped with an Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) Simulator, which runs Epic Games’ game engine, namely Unreal Engine 5. Its role here is to display a road map with three-dimensional (3D) visuals.

The trick of presenting Afeela with DualSense certainly impresses people. How could it not be, this is like the opposite of PlayStation’s technology, namely PSVR2. Instead of presenting an immersive virtual world, Sony actually shows directly how sophisticated its hardware (DualSense) is in the real world.

Some people might be a little disappointed, because the ability to control a car with a PS5 controller is just a demo, not for real sale. But from here people can see that DualSense has a variety of functions that can be integrated apart from playing games.

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.

Latest PS5 prices in Indonesia December 2023

PlayStation 5 or commonly shortened to PS5, is a game console made by Sony which was released in November 2020. When it was first released, PS5 was sold at a very high price, namely around IDR 20 million. Approximately how much does the latest PS5 cost now?

The latest PS5 price in December 2023 can be said to still be the same as in previous months. The price has decreased quite significantly compared to when it was first released several years ago. This is because the PS5 had limited stock when it was released. This is what caused the price to soar at that time.

Now, the price of the latest PS5 is just under IDR 10 million. This price applies to both types of PS5. Previously, Sony released two types of PS5, namely the PS5 without Optical Disc Drive (ODD) which can only be used to play digital versions of games, and the other is the PS5 Disc Edition or disc in bluray format.

Last November, you could get a PS5 for just IDR 8 million. So what is the price of the latest PS5 in December 2023? To find out what the price range is, let’s look at the discussion below.

In November 2023, Sony released the latest version of the PS5. This latest version is called PS5 New Look. Quoted on the PlayStation page, the PS5 New Look comes with a lighter size and weight than the previous model.

This new version of the PS5 will be the only version available in the future, after stocks of the previous version sold out. PS5 New Look is not yet officially sold in Indonesia.

Even though we don’t yet know how much the latest version of the PS5 will cost, PlayStation has provided a leak regarding the price range.

1.PS5 New Look digital version IDR 10.2 million

2.PS5 New Look disc version IDR 8.5 million

This price is the price converted from EUR to Rupiah. This price is not the official price of the PS5 New Look sold in Indonesia.

Due to unfair prices on the PlayStation Store, Sony was sued for IDR 123 trillion

Sony, as the parent of the video game giant, namely PlayStation, has to face a mass lawsuit with a fantastic value. It is known that the figure reached USD 7.9 billion or around Rp. 123 trillion.

They were accused of abusing their position as game buying and selling platform providers. The information is that Sony provides unfair prices to customers.

Actually, this lawsuit came to Sony last year. There are at least nearly nine million names of British citizens behind the lawsuit, who have purchased digital games or additional content on the PlayStation Store.

Sony lost IDR 123 trillion

Alex Neil, the lawyer who defends consumer rights, estimates that the total losses from this case will reach above the previous value. According to him, the company requires digital games and add-ons to be bought and sold only through the PlayStation Store, charging developers and publishers a 30% commission.

Reported by GameStation from Reuters, Wednesday (22/11/2023), the claim said that customers paid higher prices for games and additional content than they had to pay.

In fact, Sony’s lawyers had asked that this case be dropped. He said it was flawed from start to finish. Unfortunately the objection was not accepted and the case continues.

Here the Competition Appeal Tribunal ruled that Neil’s case could proceed. However, people who made game purchases on the PlayStation Store after the case was filed in 2022, must be excluded from the group of plaintiffs.

Neil emphasized that Sony’s actions harm millions of people who cannot afford it. Especially now that there is a cost of living crisis and many consumers’ wallets are being squeezed.
