A few days ago, Sony revealed that 99 percent of PS4 games will be compatible with the PS5 and that there are very few titles you can’t play on the upcoming console. Now, the list of 10 just got shorter. NACON and KT Racing told Push Square that they’re developing a patch that would make TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2 PS5-compatible. A NACON rep told the publication that the developers are working to make the motorbike racing game 100 percent functional on the new console, though it’s unclear if they’ll be able to roll out the update by the time the PS5 comes out on November 12th.
Ride on the Edge 2 isn’t the only game in the original list that will receive a compatibility update, though: As GamesRadar+ noted, you’ll also be able to play high-speed shooter DWVR on the PS5. A developer for the game recently announced on Reddit that Mad Triangles is working on a patch and that they’re hoping to release it before the PS5 arrives.
The companies’ announcement opens up the possibility that the other titles will also be playable on Sony’s next-gen console. While the short list could dwindle even further, there’s one game that will never get an update: Shadwen. Its developer told Push Square that the stealth game’s loading screen freezes up on the PS5, and since it uses an older engine, the company can’t work on on a patch anymore.
If you haven’t yet subscribed to any of the major streaming services, first I have to ask: How have you avoided them? Second: You’ve missed the boat when it comes to trying the biggest names for free.
Streaming giant Netflix quietly did away with its 30-day trial in the U.S., according to CNET, just like Disney+, which stopped offering free trials back in June. The U.S. is not the only market where Netflix has decided to end its free trial. The company ended trial periods in Mexico and several other countries as far back as two years ago.
“Free trials are not available, but you can still sign up and take advantage of all Netflix has to offer,” Netflix’s free trial help page now reads. In a statement to CNET, a Netflix spokesperson said the company is currently looking at differen marketing promotions in the U.S. to “attract new members and give them a great Netflix experience.”
If you’re disappointed, that’s understandable. Who doesn’t like to get something for free, even if it’s for a limited time? If you’re planning on signing up for your own Netflix account, you’ll need to shell out a minimum of $9 month.
This might have to do with the fact that Netflix is currently offering specific TV shows and movies to watch for free, which it began doing in August. Current free titles include Stranger Things, Bird Box, and When They See Us, which, honestly, are worth watching whether you want to pay for Netflix or not.
It’s also worth noting that several other streaming services still offer free trials. Hulu offers one month free, while CBS All Access, Shudder, and HBO Max offer a free week. And Peacock offers an entire free tier, which

In a sea of laptops and smartphones, there are times when you do need a desktop computer. This is a need that is particularly felt nowadays as we all work from home. And when it comes to computers, the recently updated iMac 27-inch is a fabulous option. It is the kind of machine that goes beyond its purpose. It adds something extra to the user experience. Like the way Google Pixel phones do. Or like how some iPhones do. Or like home some of the smart speakers function. These are the products that are more than the sum of their parts, and the Apple iMac 27-inch is in the same league.
But why? Well, reasons. If you are looking to get a high-end desktop computer for regular use at home, the iMac 27-inch should be in your shortlist. That is if you don’t mind paying its high price, which if you can you should not mind because while the iMac costs a lot it is also worth it. Just like an expensive sports car.
But let’s be quick about it. We already detailed the iMac 27-inch in our review. So we give you 5 reasons to go for the iMac 27-inch and 2 for not considering it.
Reason 1: The primary reason why the iMac is such a great computer is its screen. Not only the 27-inch screen is expansive but its 5K resolution means it is one of the best screens money can buy in India. Irrespective of what you do on the computer browsing, streaming, watching videos, editing videos, editing photos every experience is elevated due to the quality of the screen.
Reason 2: The clutter-free design means the iMac looks great on the desk. By default, there is only one wire that you need to connect to
With little more income than the state pension, Christine Chapman is careful with her money.
The 70-year-old keeps paperwork meticulously in a filing cabinet and knows what is coming in and going out.
Her bills were cut by hundreds of pounds a year, simply by switching insurance, phone and mobile suppliers.
It all sounds like an advert for competition and the benefits of shopping around.
But Mrs Chapman was lucky.
The widow, from County Durham, does not have a computer and does not know how to operate one. Her smartphone is only used for calls and messages to family and friends. She had no way of shopping around for better deals.
What she does have is a caring brother-in-law who taught IT and, after a conversation at a family gathering, realised Mrs Chapman was paying far too much on her bills.
“She has no computer, no email address, and a router was stuck in a drawer because she did not know what to do with it,” says her brother-in-law Stephen Harris.
“She is like millions of vulnerable people in this country who do not have any knowledge of the internet but trust big companies to treat her right.”
Mrs Chapman was a victim of the loyalty penalty – someone who sees prices rise every year when policies or deals are renewed.
Take her home insurance. She had been a customer with the same company for more than 30 years and was paying a premium of £575 for buildings and contents insurance for a small three-bedroom terraced home.
Mr Harris researched like-for-like policies and within 10 minutes he had found one for £80.
“I was surprised,” says Mrs Chapman. “I was a loyal
