LoL Wild Rift Revenue
According to Data AI website, League of Legends: Wild Rift has passed a major milestone. Apparently, consumer spending passed or joined the $1 Billion club since its launch. Basically, a lifetime global player spending across the iOS App Store and Google Play. One of the biggest driving factors is coming from China for example in the first half Wild Rift earned 8.2 million in the US but in China, it earned 188 million. Next revenue source is Vietnam and then Brazil, with no mention of the Philippines. Note that Vietnam has a slightly lower GDP according to 2021 data. This means we are not really big spenders compared to the other market at least for Wild Rift since ML is still dominating. Aside from that Data AI also shared MOBA games worldwide statistics up until the first half of 2023.

Data insights also added mobile is still driving the lion’s share of the gaming market at 56% of consumer spending in 2023
This is 2.7x more than PC/Mac gaming

Jujutsu Kaisen Live Action / Adaptation
Did you guys know there is a Live adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen, and apparently part 2 is coming out in December. Before you imagine random things I'm talking about a live-stage play adaptation. This is an official stage play that will happen in Hyogo and Tokyo from December 2023 to January 2024. It will adapt the "Kyoto Goodwill Event Arc" and "The Origin of Obedience Arc.

Warzone Mobile
Initially expected to be released this year for iOS and Android, Call of Duty Warzone Mobile is now expected to be released in spring 2024. Unfortunately, there is no specific release date so expect around March, April, and May? However, if you are interested you can pre-register. Actually, Activision announced that over 45 million users pre-registered for Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile. When the game launches, it will feature both Verdansk and Rebirth Island. According to IGN, Warzone Mobile will support cross-progression with the mainline Warzone 2.0 and MW3 on PC or Console meaning rank and rewards will sync

PS5 Slim
Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced new slimmer PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition models. According to Gematsu the slim ps5 models will have a 30% reduced volume and will also be lighter compared to the regular version. Internal storage has also been upgraded to one terabyte. Users who purchase the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition can purchase the blu ray drive separately. Nothing was mentioned on the specs so we assume its the same. The slim models will have a select launch date for US retailers on November. In Japan, it was announced that it will release on November 10. As for the price the PlayStation 5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive will cost $499 while the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition costs $449.99. The vertical stand is sold separately at $29.99.

Cyberpunk Live Action
A live-action project set in the world of the popular sci-fi video game Cyberpunk 2077 is in the works. So CD Projekt Red is teaming up with Anonymous Content. Anonymous Content is known for Mr Robot (a very good hacking show) and True Detective, the show with one of the best scenes in history. According to Variety, it will be developed in close collaboration with the Cyberpunk 2077 creative team. If do they something similar with Edge runners it should be good. It might be a while until we see anything from the adaptation and the new project is at an early development stage

DDR Mini
Who here has played Dance Dance Revolution? Or you at least aware? Zuiki has unveiled a mini Dance Dance Revolution console. This is in celebration of the iconic Konami game’s 25th anniversary. The Dance Dance Revolution Classic Mini is a one-fifth-scale replica of the original two-person arcade game. The best thing is its actually functional and playable but only with fingers since it is a mini-version. It also has a built-in LCD screen or if you want you can connect via HDMI. If you are interested the Zuiki Dance Dance Revolution Classic Mini is currently in the crowdfunding process via Kibidango and is priced at ¥43,780 JPY (approximately $300 USD) but the mini consoles will begin shipping in the Summer 2024.

Gollum AI
Has anyone here played the best Lord of the Rings game ever made? Not Shadow of Mordor and not even The Battle for Middle-earth. I'm talking about Lord Of The Rings: Gollum, do you know about this game? It was so good they fired their employees and closed their studio Daedalic Entertainment and will just focus now on their publishing business. So apparently The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum’ apology was allegedly written with AI ChatGPT. The apology is apology is about the “underwhelming” quality of the game. Adding that The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum “did not meet the expectations we set for ourselves or for our dedicated community”. The funnier thing is Daedalic Entertainment supposedly did not know anything about an apology before it was sent out on social media
