PlayStation: the next event will have a surprise, already known for a while


Since E3 2021 ended, fans ask themselves a particular question almost every day: when will we see the next PlayStation event? Unfortunately, we still do not know how to give a clear and precise answer to this question, but the rumors around the next Sony event do not stop even for a minute. Recently, a rumor is suggesting that one of the surprises that await us during the show is already known.

Last week Sony was particularly active and in the mood for announcements. Between the acquisition of Housemarque first, and Nixxes later, the Japanese company stopped without revealing practically anything about the next rumored event. There was an announcement, however, brought to light by the same company, which then never found a real response: we are talking about a possible acquisition of Bluepoint Games.

The clue has been released 'Japanese PlayStation account, but the official announcement never came. Now, according to a recent Twitter post made by the co-founder of the Xbox Era site, it seems that the next digital event Sony will have a surprise that how it has already been disclosed. Also according to Nick, according to what he was told (it is not specified by whom or from what source) the surprise should be the acquisition of Bluepoint Games.

So it seems Sony Japan Twitter already spoiled this surprise ? Because I was just now told the surprise was Bluepoint being acquired

Aside from this rumor, at the moment everything is silent from Sony, but if the event is really expected this week as has long been rumored, we can expect an official announcement very close to the show. In the meantime we do not know what Bluepoint Games is working on, and it is possible that the announcement of the acquisition by Sony may also be accompanied by the announcement of an upcoming game from the talented team.

Waiting to find out what are the next Sony announcements coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, you can buy your copies of Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone on Amazon.

PlayStation website no longer lists Friends, Parties, and Trophies

The PlayStation's website has removed the ability to see online Friends, Parties, and view Trophies.

As first reported by Gamespot, the PlayStation website has now been altered by Sony. With the new update, the features for viewing Friends and Parties, as well as scrolling through your in-game Trophies, are no longer available, and have been entirely removed from the website.

Instead, users are recommended to use the PlayStation mobile app to take advantage of all the features removed from the official website. The removed part of the website was actually known as MyPlayStation, for those unfamiliar, and has acted as an extension for the aforementioned roles for three years now, after having been originally launched in 2018.

Right now, you can still use the PlayStation website to peruse your own online PSN profile, as well as viewing information about all your owned games. It's not entirely clear why Sony has made the decision to remove the Friends, Parties, and Trophy information, and whether they intend to further alter any other aspects of the PlayStation website in the immediate future.
