ICYMI: a weekly news round-up of the biggest gaming news from TrueTrophies

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
Welcome to ICYMI! This week, we have simplified the format into a PlayStation exclusive hub so you can stay updated.

  • The Summer Sale is offering some hot deals for you lot to pick up! We are still gathering community suggestions, so peruse the
  • European and the North American sales lists, choose a recommendation, and stick it in the comments for a chance to be featured!
  • The poll might be on fire because we have asked you what your favourite PlayStation Studios are. Be careful of flaming hot takes.
  • The Gameplay Chart for the week had several returning heroes and games on PS services like Now and Plus rise to the top.
  • PS Vita's PlayStation Store can no longer receive digital submissions, meaning we have just got our last games on the system, effectively stabbing the Vita straight in the heart.
  • A cool trailer dropped for that new Iki Island Story content in Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut. Looking good, Jin!
  • Jade Raymond's PlayStation-partnered Haven Studio might be making an exclusive new game with multiplayer components. The team also has a new art director, which gives us a little indication of what the team is looking for.
  • The seemingly ever-present (and ominous) Tencent has aquired Sumo Digital for a lot of money.
  • Sony has filed a new patent all about benching players when watching competitive streams. We are still trying to work it all out, so get in the comments if you have any suggestions.
  • The outage of PSN has been solved. Yay!
  • There has been a new hardware iteration of the PS5 spotted in Sony User Manuals. Do you like screws?
Our Take: Well, it is hard to look at this week and think that it will ever be thought of as one of the greats. A spectacular sale, a tremendous trailer for Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut, and promising partner news with the Haven stuff are all fun. Everything else is easy to shrug a shoulder at, except the Vita news with stings like a Portuguese man o' war attack. So, an average week that will leave us with enough to mull over!

Thanks for reading! Hopefully, you are all caught up now! See you next week, TT folks...

Hey, I'm Kes! I'm a Staff Writer, and I've been here since 2021. What do I like? The Outer Wilds is top notch. The Witcher 3 blew my mind over the course of five years completing it. I want Burnout back — I really miss crunching mechanical wonders into walls to the sound of Guns N' Roses. Cool, now we are acquainted, I'll see you around.
