Leaks suggest that the next major update for the PlayStation 4 may be right around the corner, with a host of exciting features set to be implemented.

The most recent PlayStation update was released on March 30th – which saw the introduction of remote play for iOS devices, allowing players to connect to their console by downloading the PS4 Remote Play app.

Weeks later, the eagerly anticipated PSN Online ID name change update was released, finally allowing players to change how they appear during online games after years of waiting for the feature to be implemented.

Leaked PS4 update features

According to Sony leaker, Tidux, plenty of new features will be added when the 7.00 update is finally released to the public.

He suggests that gifting games could be on the way to the PlayStation Store – allowing players to add games to a wish list which can be purchased by a third-party.

As well as the gifting feature, changes to the user interface could also include trophy progression and timelog/stats for all games played – giving users an insight into how much they enjoy their favorite titles.

Also, similar to Xbox, PlayStation players will be able to pin games to their dashboard, allowing them to access their games and apps far more easily.

As always, these leaks should be taken with a grain of salt, as there is no way to verify the update is forthcoming without any official communication from Sony.

Xbox already use a dashboard where players can pin their games and apps.

When will the PS5 be released?

While Sony continues to update their current console, speculation has been rife regarding the potential release of their next-gen device – the rumored
PlayStation 5

The console is expected to release in late 2020, meaning there is still over a year of PlayStation 4 to be enjoyed, and Sony will be keen to keep interest in their console high ahead of the next-gen launch.


Trainers fascinated by mysterious Victini encounter in Crown Tundra

Legendary ‘mons from past games have returned in the Pokemon Sword and Shield Crown Tundra DLC but there are still plenty of missing Mythical species, including Victini.

However, interestingly, an encounter for Victini has been found in the Crown Tundra expansion’s code. This information originated from Centro Leaks which claimed Victini is a static encounter found at Level 70.

Naturally, ambitious Pokemon trainers have jumped on this but haven’t been able to find the Victory Pokemon. Just because it has been found in the code, doesn’t mean it can be found, though. Equally, just because it hasn’t been found, doesn’t mean it isn’t lurking out in the Crown Tundra somewhere.

The mystery of Victini has also fascinated Joe Merrick, webmaster of the Serebii website. He sought to clarify the mystery: “It has an in-game encounter. This is a fact. It wouldn’t be in Raid Battles with this encounter or an event. There’s also no text to support it.”

He went on to say that they have tried everything to find it but have obviously been unsuccessful. As such they are considering it leftover code and therefore currently unavailable. “I’m calling it before I lose my mind. I hope I’m wrong here, but I’m all out of ideas.”

The mystery of Victini in the Crown Tundra DLC has got the whole Pokemon community talking…

Victini bounty

Nevertheless, it is very strange that a static encounter exists for the Gen 5 Mythical Pokemon. So, maybe there is some crazy to unlock it.

The unknown has also intrigued Austin John Plays, so much so that he is offering a bounty for anyone that figures out the potential puzzle.

Bragging rights are on the line for the first trainer/creator to be able to find out how to catch Victini.

How to get Victini in Pokemon Sword Shield

This all refers to an encounter within the Pokemon Sword and Shield game, however. There is another, simple way to get the dual fighting/water type Mythical ‘mon.

That is through Pokemon HOME. Simply catch it another game (or use one you already have) and transfer it over. You’ll be able to do the same with Pokemon Go soon, when connectivity is enabled some time in 2020.

Whether the actual encounter is a mistake, something that was included in the Crown Tundra and subsequently removed, or something else entirely, hopefully we’ll find out in time.
