Sony also offers a ‘game subscription’ plan system

Sony

Sony will enter the game subscription market in earnest by introducing a new regular subscription plan. If you pay a monthly subscription fee of about 10,000 won, you can enjoy 600 games, including famous intellectual property rights (IP) such as “Horizon Zero Dawn.” Sony, the undisputed No. 1 player in console games, is expected to jump into the game subscription market, which is currently more than 60% occupied by Microsoft’s Xbox.

According to industries on the 19th, Sony will introduce a new ‘PlayStation Plus’ plan in Asia except for Japan from the 24th. The plan includes existing subscription and streaming services with the same name

It was expanded and reorganized by integrating ‘PS Now’ into three grades: △ Essential △ Special △ Premium and Deluxe. The special plan offers up to 400 games and the premium plan offers about 700 games.

In fact, Sony has been passive in subscribing to games. Previously, regular subscription services were provided, but only two to three free games were distributed every month, which was criticized as “pattern-only subscription.”

The industry diagnoses that there was no need to actively expand game subscriptions as Sony has already secured an overwhelming share. According to Ampere Analysis, Sony accounted for 46 percent of the total console game market (72.8 trillion won) last year, beating second-place MS (25 percent). The number of members of the existing regular subscription service also reached 47.4 million as of March this year. The figure is double the number of “Game Pass” subscribers (25 million) of MSX Box, which is known to offer much more benefits.

However, the situation turned around as Microsoft acquired Activision Blizzard for 82 trillion won earlier this year. Microsoft said it will also include Activision Blizzard’s IP in its game path. Activision Blizzard is a company that has several large IPs such as ‘Call of the Duty’, ‘StarCraft’, and ‘Diablo’. If Microsoft exclusively provides box office IP through game passes, Sony’s stronghold will also be threatened. It is also a big burden for Sony that Microsoft has secured a large number of IPs by merging “Zenemax Media,” which includes a number of famous game developers such as “Bedesda,” prior to the acquisition of Activision Blizzard. “Unlike Microsoft, which has various business portfolios, Sony relies on the game sector for about 30% of its total sales,” an industry source said. “In order to survive, it would have had to throw a check on expanding subscription services.” looks

The industry predicts that competition in the game subscription market will begin in earnest in the future. In 2017, Microsoft released an Xbox game pass that provides more than 100 games for $9.99 a month. The number of members increased from 10 million in 2020 to 25 million now. Currently, the share in the streaming-based game subscription market is more than 60%. Big tech companies Amazon and Google have also entered the market with “Luna” and “Stadia,” respectively, but they are struggling with little results due to their lack of IP. On the other hand, Sony is said to be competitive as it has secured a significant number of its own IPs, including “Destiny” of Bungee Studio, which was acquired earlier this year.

Meanwhile, as console “Yanggang” aggressively increases game subscription services, domestic game companies, which are scheduled to debut in the console market from this year, are also expected to get opportunities. Domestic game companies may have difficulty attracting customers in the early stages due to a lack of awareness in the console market. Analysts say that if it is on the subscription service of Sony and Microsoft, it will be able to enjoy not only the promotional effect but also the inflow effect of overseas users. In fact, Neowiz, which launched Skull through Xbox Game Pass in February, said, “We enjoyed the effect of increasing profitability as more new users increased after entering the game pass,” adding, “Entering the game pass itself has the effect of recognizing gameability.”

Pokémon Go, New Esper Pokémon to Appear

Pokémon Go

In “Pokémon Go,” which is carrying out various updates for the “Joking Season,” it announced the arrival of a new Pokemon for “Esper Week.”

On the 1st, Pokémon Go announced the appearance of new Esper-type Pokémon “Okaying” and “Calamanero” during the “Esper Week” period from the 8th to the 13th through its official website.

Okayzing is a monster that appeared in the X-Y version of Pokemon that needs ‘special conditions’ for evolution. As a hint, non-game factors, not within the game, influence.

The evolutionary Kalamanero is a Pokémon with a rather threatening appearance and is worth posting on the “release list” considering the cute appearance of Okaging. However, since the original film had its own use, it remains to be seen what performance Pokémon Go will show.

Meanwhile, Pokémon Go is hosting various events such as “Joking Season” in September. In this season, various “preliminary events” will be held ahead of Halloween, including “Esper Week,” starting with “The Appearance of Hoopa” on the 5th.

Teddy

“If you watch the game yourself, you’ll see the starting roaster.”

At the end of the season, as the performance of “Kuma Youshi” faltered in the 10th week of the season, he was called back as a starter.

T1, which changed the one deal, set up a starting lineup with “Kanna” Kim Chang-dong, “owner” Moon Hyun-joon, “Faker” Lee Sang-hyuk, “Teddy” Park Jin-sung and “Keria” Ryu Min-seok.

Legend of Runtera
Riot Games will hold a season tournament on the 14th of the season of Legend of Runtera (LoR), a strategy card game based on the “League of Legends (LoL)” worldview.

The LoR season tournament is an international e-sports competition for top-ranked users in Asia (Korea, Japan), America (North America, Brazil, Latin America), Europe, Southeast Asia (Taiwan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines), and is held at the end of each season every two months.

This is the first tournament since the launch of the underground world’s turbulence, the last expansion pack set in Shrima, the southern part of the planet Runtera. It is expected that the participants will have a heated competition with a total of 43 new cards.

The “Underground World Turbulence” season tournament will start with the preliminary round of the round of 124, which will be held on August 14, and a total of 32 players who survived the preliminary round will advance to the playoffs on August 21. The total prize money is $20,000, and the final winner is $10,000 along with the honor of the season champion. All participants are entitled to the back of the limited card when recording three wins.

Qualifications to participate in the competition can be obtained in two ways: rank game and competitive mode, Guntlet. The top 700 players in each region’s ranking automatically get a chance to participate in the tournament. In order to qualify for the competition through the Guntlet, he can win seven games in the “Last Chance Guntlet.” However, since only 324 people are eligible to participate on a first-come-first-served basis, it is advantageous to participate in the weekly gauntlet.

The tournament will be held in an open round before the final playoffs, where 32 players are determined, and will qualify for the playoffs if they record more than eight wins in an open round of nine. Participants assigned as top seed according to the season rankings will be entitled to the same qualification even if they achieve seven wins. The match schedule will begin at 16:55 p.m. on August 21, and the final will be held at the same day.

In particular, attention is being paid to whether Korean players will defend their position in the LoR season tournament in Asia as the Korean player defeated the Japanese ranker Pisukaru in the final of the season tournament held in June this year.

Group of employees resisting allegations

Group of employees resisting allegations of sexual harassment by Activision Blizzard

Activision Blizzard

More than 1,000 former and current employees of Activision Blizzard have protested against the company’s management. Former and current employees who protested against the alleged denial of suspicion by Activision Blizzard management accused of discrimination and sexual harassment against female employees have demanded the resignation of the manager and the prevention of recurrence.

Activision Blizzard was indicted by the California State Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) on the 20th (local time) on charges of discriminatory treatment and continuous sexual harassment of female employees. According to DFEH, 20% of all employees at Activision Blizzard have suffered disadvantages throughout the past two years, and sexual harassment is rampant in the company, with male employees making obscene and nude pictures of female employees.

Activision Blizzard denied the allegations, calling the lawsuit “distorted or false” and “a worthless and irresponsible lawsuit,” but the controversy escalated as related testimony from former and current executives continued.

“Francis Townsend’s subsequent internal statements about the action Blizzard and the DFEH lawsuit are disgusting and insulting,” said some 1,600 former and current employees of Activision Blizzard, calling the testimony “distorted or false” an attempt to silence the company.

“We cannot believe that management will put employees’ safety above their interests in the face of legal action and concerns,” said former and current employees of Activision Blizzard. “We cannot accept what many former and current employees claim to be a “valueless and irresponsible lawsuit.”

Activision Blizzard’s former and current employees urged the resignation of Francis Townsend, a senior executive who spoke in question, and demanded that employees have a safe say. “We stand with friends, team members and colleagues who have experienced all kinds of abuse or harassment. We will not be silent, and we will not give up until the company becomes a job that everyone can feel proud of.”
