“Chris Gore is a writer, comedian, author and television personality who has built a solid reputation as a hilariously outspoken voice in the entertainment world. As a teenager, Chris founded the brutally honest magazine Film Threat, which began as a fanzine while he was a college student in Detroit. As Film Threat evolved into a respected national magazine, he relocated to Los Angeles. The print magazine was retired in 1997 when it was re-launched as a web site. FilmThreat.com found a huge audience online and was named one of the top five movie web sites by the Wall Street Journal. Chris has appeared as a film expert on MSNBC, E!, CNN, Travel Channel, and Reelz Channel. Chis has also hosted shows on FX, Starz, IFC and G4TV’s Attack of the Show as the show’s film expert. His weekly movie review segment DVDuesday was among the most popular on G4. Chris is also an author, having written The 50 Greatest Movies Never Made and The Complete DVD Book. His book The Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide is considered the bible of the industry and is required reading at film school.”

“Salty gaming, anime and comic book journalists seem to be taking their frustrations over the IGN situation out on YouTubers on Twitter. YouTubers didn’t lead to the decline of interest in gaming journalism… journos did it to themselves.”

“Masters of the Universe: Revelation will be respectful of what came before, unlike She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, according to showrunner Kevin Smith. It’s interesting that Smith is making a point to address She-Ra and the Princesses of Power while promoting He-Man. Could the salty She-Ra stans who’ve been pushing for a sixth season and a movie be harassing Smith because He-Man is getting TWO Netflix series, while She-Ra seems to be done?”

“Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Disney Plus series) tweeted that he thought TV and movies were very boring and very safe now because everyone is afraid of being cancelled. Is Glover calling out cancel culture, or is he talking about boring shows getting cancelled because no one is watching them?”

“Gina Carano might be BACK at Disney… at least on Nat Geo. It was revealed on Twitter that Carano’s episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls is going to air on Disney+ after all. Now this DOESN’T mean Lucasfilm will welcome her back with open arms to The Mandalorian, but it would appear she’s not as radioactive as she was a couple of months ago.”

Disney SUED by Predator Creators! Disney Has to Give Predator BACK to Them?!…

“Disney is being sued by the screenwriters of Predator. Does this mean they will have to give Predator back?! A copyright law that went into effect decades ago sates that most studios only have the rights to use a screenplay and its characters for 35 years, which means a lot of 1980s franchises could potentially revert back to their creators. We know how Disney deals with copyright law…”

PS3 players reportedly unable to download key game patches ahead of store shutdowns…

“Following Sony’s announcement that it will be shutting down the PlayStation 3 storefront later this summer, fans are now reporting that they’re unable to download essential patches for certain PS3 games.

Sony recently confirmed that it will be shutting down its PS3, PS Vita, and PSP stores later this year, making it impossible to purchase new digital games across those storefronts. Sony explains that users will still be able to re-download any digital purchases made through the store, but they will be unable to buy new games following the closures.

Sony has yet to comment on the issue, and it’s currently unclear if it’s a deliberate decision on its part.

Players still have time to get games across the aforementioned platforms. The PS3 and PSP stores are set to close on July 2, 2021, while the PS Vita store is due to shut down on August 27, 2021.”

I’m sure there are a lot of working PS3s out there…Mine works great, and I’ve no intentions of being done with it…

There are also lots of used PS3 games out there in the market…It would be insane for Sony to render them un-patchable.

Sony decided to partner with all these game developers employing this awful business model, of releasing games by a set date and patching [aka worrying about fixing them] later…so, they need to continue supporting the patches at the very least.

I recently purchased a few PS3 games…and I expect them to be patched, when I get around to installing them.
