Sony’s latest PlayStation 4 software update is launching today, tweaking a host of existing features.

As the PlayStation Blog details, there will be updates to Party and Messages, bringing noticeable changes to the UI, streamlining them, and linking them more closely. Instead of having separate groups, both Party and Messages will now use the same groups for both voice chats and messaging.

In the Quick Menu, the update is also adding a rather self-explanatory Mute All Microphones feature, letting players, well, mute all mics while playing.

Sony is also adding new pre-set avatars, including ones from Bloodborne, Journey, Ghost of Tsushima, God of War, The Last of Us Part II, The Last of Us Remastered, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and many more.

The Parental Controls are being simplified by folding Communicating With Other Players and Viewing Content Created By Other

Apple added an Apple Pay landing page to its regional Mexico website late on Tuesday, indicating the mobile payment system could launch in the country imminently.


Way back in March there were suggestions that Apple Pay could be coming to Mexico, after reports that some iPhone users in the country had been able to add their Banregio cards to the Wallet app, with only the verification process failing.

Cards from banks other than Banregio were not able to be added to the Wallet app on the ‌‌iPhone‌‌, suggesting ‌‌Apple Pay‌‌ in Mexico could be limited to Banregio at launch.

That’s still uncertain, since the ‌Apple Pay‌ page on Apple’s Mexican website offers no launch date and doesn’t list any banks that will integrate with the service. All it says is ‌Apple Pay‌ will be compatible with “credit and debit cards of the most important payment networks, issued by various banks,”

The wait is over–Amazon Prime Day 2020 is officially live, but you don’t have to be a Prime subscriber or even shop at Amazon to get amazing deals today. That’s because this has effectively become a precursor to Black Friday, and competing retailers are getting in on the action with steep discounts on games and tech this week. Best Buy is one of those retailers running a big anti-Prime Day sale of its own, and it made the biggest move we’ve ever seen to compete with Amazon by announcing its first Black Friday deals will go live this week.

Select deals from Best Buy’s Black Friday ad have gone live today, and they feature fantastic discounts on laptops, tablets, and 4K smart TVs along with Arcade1Up cabinets. Notably, you can buy a Samsung 70-inch 4K smart TV for $530, down from its usual $750–just in time for next-gen gaming. There’s

The 24th annual Eastside Culture Crawl has announced that it is expanding its reach this year with virtual and appointment-based studio tours and livestream demos.

 

“Each year, we welcome visitors to explore the richness and vitality of the Eastside Arts District,” says artistic and executive director Esther Rausenberg in a press release. “And while artists have faced unprecedented hardships this year, our mandate for the 24th annual Crawl remains the same—to celebrate the extraordinary talents of our visual artists and inspire a creative connection between artists and the greater community.

 

That connection for the Crawl–which takes place November 12-15 and 19-22–will be made through enhanced, interactive virtual programming, via the use of a new digital appointment scheduler for controlled, in-person engagement at open studios. A virtual preview week, November 2 to 9, will feature a curated selection of artist workshops, demonstrations, and talks, as well as the seventh annual Moving

Here’s what to look for:

  • Different 5G options. Apple is one of the last major phone makers to offer 5G phones, after launches from Samsung, Google Pixel and others. Some other makers offer lower-price models that don’t support the fastest “millimeter wave” (also known as “ultra wideband”) 5G technology.
  • An array of sizes. The iPhone has, generally, gotten larger over the years. The iPhone 12 comes in a new smaller “Mini” version that’s easier to hold and stuff into jeans.
  • More cameras. The iPhone’s Pro line adds a fourth sensor on the back that measures distance, similar to the LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) scanner Apple built into its latest iPad Pro. It could be useful for augmented reality applications, and possibly new camera tricks.
  • Apple stopped including headphones and charging plugs with its new phones, following a similar move with its latest Apple Watch. Will consumers see that move

This month marks ten months since Juice WRLD tragically passed away after a seizure at Chicago’s Midway Airport last December. His death shocked the entertainment world and once again stressed the importance of mental health. To coincide with Saturday’s World Mental Health Day, Juice WRLD’s mother, Carmela Wallace, penned an open letter that she shared with Complex, reflecting on her relationship with her son. She also announced the launch of the Live 999 website, with the goal of helping mothers navigate and aid the mental health issues from which their children may be suffering.

The announcement comes shortly after Live Free 999 donated a large number of musical instruments to Deer Creek Christian School, which made it possible for the school to have a fully-equipped orchestra. With the new website, Live Free 99’s goal is, as the website’s mission statement reads, to “support programs that provide preventative measures and positive

In conjunction with World Mental Health Day, Juice WRLD‘s mom has launched the official website for Live Free 999—a charitable organization founded posthumously in the rapper’s honor.

Carmella Wallace announced the launch in an open letter Saturday, about 10 months after Juice—birth name Jarad Anthony Higgins—died of an accidental drug overdose. Wallace reflected on her relationship with her son, recalling everything from his unyielding passion for music to his struggles with addiction, anxiety, and depression. 

“I recognized that what Jarad was dealing with was a disease and I know he truly wanted to be free from the demons that tormented him,” she wrote in a letter shared with Complex. “As a parent, I believed early on and supported Jarad having access to counseling. I encouraged him to always share his feelings.”
