After closing, PlayStation loses its most dystopian exclusive

After closing, PlayStation loses its most dystopian exclusive

After closing

There are certain games that become cult without meaning to. This is the case of The Tomorrow Children, the most dystopian exclusive PlayStation 4 ever: launched in October 2016, Sony decided to pull the plug on the free-to-play project just 13 months later, in November 2017. From then the house game Q-Games (indie developer located in Japan) lived only in the memories of the fans, but from today everything changes.

Today, in fact, Q-Games announced that it has resumed the rights to The Tomorrow Children from Sony. This means two things: the project is no longer limited (not even legally) to the PlayStation platforms and that sooner or later the Russian dystopia made in Japan will return, but it will obviously be linked to multiple consoles and not just to a single platform as happened in the past. .

The best PlayStation 5 games on offer on Amazon are all collected in this article!

The return of The Tomorrow Children after their shipwrecked marriage to PlayStation is, by the way, practically official. It is the developers themselves who have announced that the project will resume, in a post launched on their Twitter account. "We have acquired the rights and in the future the game will return", reads the post launched online. In what form, however, we cannot know. The original idea of ​​Q-Games was very simple: available only in multiplayer mode, users collaborated with each other to revive the Russian society devastated by a nuclear apocalypse.

In a historical move by Sony Interactive Entertainment , The Tomorrow Children is home again! Q-Games has acquired the IP rights and will bring back #TheTomorrowChildren in the future.

Whether The Tomorrow Children will keep the same characteristics that made it one of the PlayStation cult exclusives we don't know. For anyone interested, however it may be, it will obviously be possible to follow its development thanks to the newsletter, called Postcards from the Void. The return could however be longer than expected: in 4 years the industry has changed a lot and perhaps Q-Games will be forced to change the original design of the game quite a bit to make it fit for these modern times.

One of the best PlayStation exclusives, Uncharted 4, is super offer on Amazon.

Stock market news live updates: Stocks open mixed after record close; Dow dips after producer price data

Stocks open Tuesday morning on a mixed note, with investors taking a breather after yet another record-setting session on Wall Street. 


At the opening bell, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq eked out marginal new records, after the blue-chip index closed out an eighth straight day of gains on Monday, to notch a fresh record high and close above the 4,700 threshold for the first time ever. Although the Dow gave back gains in early trading, the index is still perched within view of its record high.

Equity investors rode an extended wave of optimism over solid quarterly corporate earnings and economic reports, which came alongside recent positive data for a new COVID-19 antiviral pill from Pfizer (PFE) and the passage of a more than $1 trillion infrastructure bill in Congress. With about 89% of S&P 500 companies having posted quarterly results, the projected earnings growth rate for the index in aggregate stands at nearly 40%, according to FactSet. And this growth rate has continued to creep higher over the past several weeks as more companies topped expectations. 

“I still think it’s all about corporate profits. I know a lot of my peers are concerned that peak earnings growth is behind us,” Marci McGregor, Bank of America Merrill Lynch senior investment strategist, told Yahoo Finance Live. “But I think peak earnings isn’t even a 2022 story. We’re seeing solid consumer demand, a strong U.S. economy, and I think we’re going to have a capex cycle in 2022. And I think that’s all positive for corporate profits, and that underpins this market, in my view.”

Earnings results after market close on Monday came in mixed. Roblox (RBLX) shares surged after posting third-quarter bookings that exceeded Wall Street's estimates, with the gaming platform growing further even after an initial stay-at-home-related boost in usage. PayPal (PYPL) shares turned lower, however, as investors homed in on the payments company's disappointing full-year outlook. This overshadowed its announcement of a new pact with Amazon (AMZN) to accept Venmo for payments next year. AMC Entertainment (AMC) also fell despite topping quarterly sales estimates, with the meme stock giving back some gains after a 2,000% run-up so far for the year-to-date. 

In quarterly reports and analyst calls, a host of companies have cited constraints around getting raw materials, filling job openings, managing rising input costs and delivering products and services to end users. 

According to Bank of America, mentions of supply chains on quarterly earnings calls have surged by 360% compared to last year, underscoring the widespread nature of these pressures. These supply-related issues have also contributed to still-elevated inflationary trends. Tuesday's Producer Price Index from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that producer prices rose by 8.6% over last year, matching October's rate for the fastest on record in data going back to Nov. 2010. 

'I would expect inflation to peak by mid-year 2022. It should remain elevated but it should move lower in the back half of 2022,' Kristina Hooper, Invesco chief global market strategist, told Yahoo Finance Live. 'So while this is certainly an issue, it is part of what we should expect coming out of the pandemic. 

'We have gotten out of a burning building, but we should expect that there is a little smoke and water damage as a result,' Hooper added. 'That’s really what we’re experiencing with elevated inflation and supply chain disruptions.”
