6-12 months? They seem to have a lot of Launch Exclusives and not many Exclusives. 

 

Getting annoyed hearing the Exclusive man

There's still time to delay :p

 

I'm like you, I'm not sure if my expectations are higher or video games just don't excite me the way that they used too, but I'm not being blown away by anything. 

Still no word on price

I'll eat my hat then. I was absolutely certain it'd be a premium price way over and above $499. Day one buy along with a new TV.

      Microsoft releases manual update packages for removing Adobe Flash from Windows
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Back in September, Microsoft reminded users about the removal of Flash from the Edge browser and Windows, stating that the company will release an optional update for the latter this fall that will remove Adobe Flash Player completely from the OS. As promised, the Redmond giant has made that optional update available for download through the Update Catalog (spotted by BleepingComputer).

      The knowledge base article is KB4577586 and the update is called “Update for Removal of Adobe Flash Player” followed by the version number of the OS for which the package is designated for. You can head to the Update Catalog here to download the update package for your preferred version. The packages are available for all currently supported Windows versions – including LTSB versions – and the related Windows Server versions.

      It must be noted that the package can currently be downloaded only via the Update Catalog for manual installation. The Redmond firm noted in the announcement earlier this year that it will begin releasing this very update via other channels such as Windows Update as a recommended update after Flash Player reaches the end of support on December 31, 2020.

      Additionally, users that currently install KB4577586 manually do not have an option to uninstall or roll back the update and will have to perform a clean installation of the OS to be able to reinstall Flash. The company has also stated that it will be removing all APIs, group policies, and interfaces that are used for managing Flash later next summer.

      Image credit: BleepingComputer Interestingly, folks over at BleepingComputer noticed that installing the update did not get rid of Flash both on Edge and in the OS. The publication has reached out to Microsoft to request clarification. It is not clear if the firm will release another manual update package before serving it to all users through the usual channels.

      Microsoft delays the fifth Flight Simulator patch by a few days due to autopilot issues
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Microsoft has announced that it will be delaying the fifth Flight Simulator patch by a few days that was slated to be made available today. The company has cited some last-minute issues with the autopilot on multiple planes, because of which it will need a few more days to iron out the problems.

      Here is the complete announcement:

      According to the updated Feedback Snapshot from last week, the patch is expected to bring fixes for issues with the terrain emitting light, the promised removal of the ‘Press Any Key to Start’ prompt – something was originally planned in the earlier patches, the ability to disable cockpit tooltips, and more. It is possible that the company will share an updated snapshot as part of this week’s roadmap containing more information about what it plans to address with the fifth patch.

      Considering that the announcement says that the patch is delayed just by a “few days”, it will not be surprising if it is released before the end of this week. With the highest voted issue also containing autopilot issues, it is best for the firm to release an update that does not add to the problems.

      As for other Flight Simulator news, the firm is closer to releasing the VR beta, with emails for the first wave of the closed beta expected to be sent out soon to users running Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

      Cyberpunk 2077 hit with another delay, now releasing on December 10
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      With less than a month to go before CD Projekt RED's latest RPG Cyberpunk 2077 was set to launch, the studio has announced another delay to the game. It's not a drastic one this time, as this delay pushes the launch back by only 21 days. Instead of November 19, Cyberpunk 2077 will now launch on December 10 across all platforms.

      While apologizing for this latest delay, CD Projekt RED said that preparing essentially nine versions of the game for a simultaneous launch - "Xbox One/X, compatibility on Xbox Series S|X, PS4/Pro, compatibility on PS5, PC, Stadia" - while working from home has been challenging.

      "Since Cyberpunk 2077 evolved towards almost being a next-gen title somewhere along the way, we need to make sure everything works well and every version runs smoothly," said the developer, explaining the situation. "We're aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make a difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do."

      The studio added that while it announced Cyberpunk 2077 had 'gone gold', with all game content being ready for shipping, it had undercalculated the time it needed to make other improvements using a day 0 update.

      If the latest plans hold, Cyberpunk 2077 will be releasing on December 10, 2020. An enhanced next-gen version of the game is also in development, which will be landing sometime later for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 with free upgrades to current-gen owners.
