Up to 65% off classic, new and upcoming indie games.
Following on from yesterday’s Nintendo Indie World showcase, a handful of games seen from that presentation (and a few old favourites) are now reduced by up to 65 per cent in the Nintendo eShop.
So, if the likes of A Short Hike, Manifold Garden, Raji: An Ancient Epic, Takeshi and Hiroshi or Evergate caught your attention, you’ll find them in the Nintendo Indie World sale. The discounts are only small at 15 per cent max, but still very welcome indeed.
On top of that, a number of other excellent recent releases have much bigger price cuts. These include gorgeous metroidvania Ori and the Blind Forest, stunning roguelike Dead Cells and mind-bending puzzler Superliminal. For something different in tone, there are also terrific prices for Streets of Rage 4, Huntdown and the Hotline Miami Collection – for the two people who haven’t played the latter yet.
Here’s the full list of games in the Nintendo Indie World sale:
Finally, a pair of games that are scheduled for release on 27th August are also up for pre-order. The first, co-op physics puzzle game Struggling is still full price at £11.99. However, ’90s net simulator Hypnospace Outlaw is down to £11.61 with a 25 per cent prelaunch discount if you fancy reliving the web’s formative years – disgusting Geocities style websites and all.
Other highlights from the Nintendo Indie World showcase included the announcement of Supergiant’s roguelike Hades for Switch, the release of beautiful adventure Spiritfarer and the terrifying news that a second goose is on the loose.
The Nintendo Indie World sale is live from now until 30th August.
First live images of the PS5 reveal how large the console looks – MobileSyrup
The first live images of the PlayStation 5 have been posted online, as the console appeared at Taiwan’s National Communications Commission (NCC).
The photos show just how big the PS5 is, which isn’t much of a surprise since we learned that the PS5 is the biggest game console in modern history.
There are images of the console in vertical and horizontal positions, which show that it may be a bit difficult to fit the PS5 in entertainment centres, since it’s been designed to stand vertically, similar to the Xbox Series X.
Although the images do show the size of the PS5, they don’t provide any information on how users will be able to access the NVMe slot on the console. Users will be able to expand storage space, but it’s not fully known how this will work.
The console will launch in Canada on November 12th. The standard Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive-equipped console will cost $629.99 CAD, while the all-digital model will be priced at $499.99 CAD.
Additionally, Sony has revealed that some PS5 games, including launch titles Demon’s Souls and Destruction AllStars, will be priced at $89.99 in Canada.

PS5, Xbox Series X and Switch size comparison shows off just how big next-gen units are – VG247
We already know that the PlayStation 5 is the biggest games console in modern history, but a new illustration has made it clear just how big the machine is.
Over on Twitter, illustrator and 3D modeller @keisawada has put together a series of images that really put the size of the next-gen consoles into perspective.
The PS5 is placed next to a Nintendo Switch, an Xbox Series X, an Xbox Series S, a 30″ TV, and a regular PS4. The difference in dimensions is clear to see.

Sony’s next-gen PlayStation towers above the other consoles and almost threatens to match the size of the TV, too. It really is a massive bit of kit.
We know why Sony’s machine is so big: it’s mostly due to cooling. Matt MacLaurin, the vice president of UX Design at PlayStation, has previously explained in a post on LinkedIn that the PS5 runs very hot. As such, it needs more space to adequately vent the heat.
The console hasn’t even launched yet and already it’s causing a schism online; some gamers think it looks pretty and futuristic, others think it looks out-dated and imposing.
Whatever you think of it, though, you can’t argue with its absolutely massive size. The PS5 is approximately 390mm tall, 260mm deep, and 104mm wide (and the digital version is only 12mm slimmer).
Sony will release two consoles in November; the standard model and the digital-only models They’ll set you back $499 and $399, respectively.
