Marvel Decides Whether to Tie Up Both Iron Man and Spiderman in Same Universe or Not in PS4

Iron Man VR

Sony is handling the Iron Man PS for PS VR, and Republique creator Camouflaj handles the development duties. At a recent press show conducted to discuss the game, the press asked whether both Iron man and Spiderman share the same universe or not in this PS4 game. This is a logical question as Marvel always mixes up various superhero movies in its cinematic universe resulting in several crossovers. But it isn’t sure yet whether it will be the scenario with this PS4 game. The decision of mixing up both worlds entirely depends upon Marvel now, and Camouflaj cannot make a decision on its behalf.

In Spiderman PS4 game, the Avengers tower was noticed, and Sony is going to publish both the games too. So the Game Revolution, a gaming site is wondering whether Tony Stark and Peter Parker will cross the paths or not.

Camouflaj said that they always wanted to build a different game with an entirely new story. They didn’t want to build the game from already existing stories.

But there is definitely an opportunity to link two worlds, but they are still not sure whether they will be doing it or not. The decision lies with Marvel Games, and if they are ok with interlinking two worlds, then people will see Tony Stark and Peter Parker together in a game too. The advertisement of this game was very exciting as it cites “ You play the Iron Man, fly around the world and destroy foes in this superhero’s suit.”

Facebook Removes Some Millions of Exposed User Records Stored Openly on Amazon’s Servers

Facebook

Facebook announced that it had removed some millions of public user databases containing its user data in Amazon.com’s cloud servers after the cybersecurity firm Upguard has discovered millions of the exposed records.

Upguard’s Cyber Risk team has announced in a blog post that Mexico City-based news website Cultura Colectiva used the Amazon servers to store nearly 540 million records of Facebook users openly this includes the identification numbers, reactions, account names, and their comments.

There is another database from an app named ‘at the Pool.’ It has names, email addresses and passwords of 22,000 people-Upguard added.

Cultura Colectiva has said in a statement that all of the Facebook records that have been stored in the database are extracted from the user interactions with the three pages of Facebook and this is the same information that has been accessed by the public.

It added” there was no sensitive data like emails and passwords in this database, we do not have such kind of user’s data, and there is no need to worry about the leakage of that data. We know the potential uses of the data these days, and this is the reason why we have reinforced our security. We are taking extreme measures to protect the data and privacy of our Facebook fan page’s users.

Alex Capacelatro, the chief executive officer of ‘At the Pool’ before it was shut down in 2014, did not respond to any kind of requests about this issue.

Facebook stated that it worked with Amazon and took down all the servers immediately as soon as it was aware of this issue. The company said that it is against Facebook policies to store the data of its users. Facebook has been hit by so many privacy-related problems lately, and this includes the glitch that has exposed passwords of some millions of users in a readable format. Amazon didn’t respond about the issue.

India’s Madras High Court Directs the Center to Ban TikTok Downloads

TikTok

The Madras High Court in India has requested the central government to impose a ban on the Chinese video app-TikTok saying that it is encouraging the pornography. This Chinese video app was created by Beijing Bytedance technology, and it allows the users to create, share short videos with special effects. The app is popular even among rural India. Nearly 1.3 billion people from India are using TikTok now.

Most of the time people share clips, jokes and the other footage related to India’s movie industry. Apart from the movie related clips, they also share the memes; videos usually lip sync and dance for the audio in the background.

The IT minister of Tamil Nadu stated to Reuters that the suggestive dance content in TikTok app is unbearable. Another Hindu nationalist group which is close to the BJP has also asked to ban the app.

In February, the information technology chief of BJP, Amit Malviya has said that their party is tracking the TikTok conversations and calls it a “brilliant medium of expression.”

The Madras High Court was listening to the public interest litigation against the app on Wednesday and said that the children who are using TikTok are more vulnerable to be exposed to the sexual predators.

The inappropriate content present on the app is one of the biggest dangerous aspects of TikTok, and there is a high possibility that the children can contact strangers directly.

A spokesperson from TikTok has said that the company is happy to comply with all the rules that are imposed by local government and they are waiting to receive the official copy of the court’s order to proceed further.

Maintaining a safe and positive environment in the app is our top most priority- he added.

The IT ministry hasn’t responded to the requests of Madras High Court yet.

GameStop Plummeted after a lot of Struggle, Delivers a Grim Forecast

gamestop

GameStop fell by 18 percent in the early trading after the predictions stating that the sales will tumble this year. This is the evidence proving that the company is struggling to adapt to the latest changes and transformation that is happening in the industry.

The retail chain projected on Tuesday that their sales will drop in the range of 5 to 10 percent this year. Though GameStop is incorporating some of the cost-cutting measures as a part of their turnaround plan, the investors are not so confident about it. The stock of GameStop has fallen to $8.70 in the pre-market trading. This adds to the twenty percent decline in the stock price so far in 2019.

GameStop has been the largest independent retailer in the video games for a long time now, but the company is unable to keep up with the pace of this fast-changing industry. The gamers once used to rely on the brick and mortar stores for purchasing the consoles and discs, but now the situations have changed, and they are able to get anything with just a click.

Last month, both Apple and Google announced that they are launching online gaming services. On Tuesday, the Activision Blizzard said that they would offer the battle-royale version of their famous Call on Duty game free for one week online in the month of April.

All these situations have increased the pressure on the management of GameStop. The company made an agreement with two activist firms who are seeking to get on the retailer’s board. GameStop will add two active board members from Permit Capital Enterprise Fund and Hestia Capital Partners.

GameStop’s comeback plan is to cut the costs as much as they can. The company is planning to achieve  $100 million in improvements in operating profit by the end of 2019.
