Sony Accidentally Leaked Long-Awaited PS5 Feature

KEY POINTS

  • PS5 is set to arrive on November 12
  • PlayStation accidentally leaked a major PS5 feature
  • Sony later confirmed and offered some details about the upcoming PS5 feature

PlayStation has accidentally confirmed that the long-awaited feature that hardcore PS fans have been requesting is coming to PS5.

The information was leaked by the French arm of PlayStation. In a blog, it revealed that the PS5 would add trophy progress. Unfortunately, the blog did not offer many details about the feature, but it mentioned that it would be able to track the progress of earning individual trophies.

The new PS5 feature would make it easier for players to keep track of a certain amount of collectibles, wins, or kills, particularly if there is uncertainty on how much work is needed on the player’s part. This detail was not however, included in the English PlayStation blog but available in the French version.

Thanks to Google Translate, the French version reads, “On PlayStation 5, you will be able to track your progress towards earning individual trophies for compatible PS5 games. For example, sometimes you’ll see how many artifacts you have left to collect, or how many armor upgrades you need to get before unlocking the Trophy.”  Interestingly, it seems that this feature will not be retroactively applied to PS4 Trophies.

This new PS5 feature comes along with the revamped progression system to PlayStation Trophies that Sony mentioned earlier including the increase in the level cap from 100 to 999. The Player’s trophy progress

In long-awaited update, CDC says airborne transmission plays a role in coronavirus spread

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledged Monday that people can sometimes be infected with the coronavirus through airborne transmission, especially in enclosed spaces with inadequate ventilation.

The long-awaited update to the agency web page explaining how the virus spreads represents an official acknowledgment of growing evidence that under certain conditions, people farther than six feet apart can become infected by tiny droplets and particles that float in the air for minutes and hours, and that they play a role in the pandemic.

The update follows an embarrassing incident last month when the agency removed a draft that had not gone through proper review and was posted in error. The draft’s wording included a reference to aerosols – tiny droplets that can stay in the air, potentially traveling a significant distance. Officials said the draft was removed because they feared the language could be misinterpreted as suggesting that airborne transmission is the main way the virus spreads.

That is not the case. The main drivers of viral spread are larger respiratory droplets that are emitted when someone coughs, sneezes, sings, talks, or breathes, the CDC said.

“There is evidence that under certain conditions, people with COVID-19 seem to have infected others who were more than six feet away,” the updated web page states. “These transmissions occurred within enclosed spaces that had inadequate ventilation. Sometimes the infected person was breathing heavily, for example while singing or exercising. the updated web page states.”

“Under these circumstances,” the web page says, “scientists believe that the amount of infectious smaller droplet and particles produced by the people with COVID-19 became concentrated enough to spread the virus to other people. The people who were infected were in the same space during the same time or shortly after the person with COVID-19 had left.”
