“Easter eggs” will be disguised as PlayStation’s iconic triangle, circle, cross and square shapes on random web pages across the official Game site.

With more than 1,000 pages to scan through, that’s a daunting task, but Game says it will release clues on its official

‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Spoilers Are Starting To Hit The Internet

Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t coming out for a little while now, but things have a way of leaking out. Physical copies have apparently started popping up in the wild, and that means that gameplay has started to leak out on the internet as well: it seems like CD Projekt Red and Warner Brothers are taking various mirrors down as fast as they can spot them, but it’s only a matter of time before major spoilers start to circulate.

So, consider this a warning. If you’re the super-sensitive type, maybe time to start muting words and avoiding the sort of forums that tend to post that sort of thing. We all remember when basically the entirety of The Last of Us Part 2 spilled out over the internet, and it was a bummer for both the developers and fans that didn’t want the story spoiled before

Watch: Chris Evans on Starting Point website: ‘Everybody thought it was a joke’

Oct. 30 (UPI) — Chris Evans appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and discussed the struggles of starting his political website, A Starting Point, which offers bipartisan information on a number of issues.

The website promotes civic engagement and offers interviews with elected officials from both parties. Evans said on Thursday that getting elected officials to participate in A Starting Point was hard at first.

“Initially everybody thought it was a joke. I don’t know what I thought. I think foolishly I just thought this is such a great idea, who wouldn’t want to be a part of this, you know. I thought the problem was going to be turning people away. Nobody responded, everybody thought it was a joke, everybody thought we were somehow trying to prank them” the Captain America star said.

Evans, after emails and videos didn’t work to convince politicians to participate, traveled to Washington, D.C., to

Apple will launch its Apple One subscription bundles on Friday, Apple CEO Tim Cook told CNBC on Thursday. Apple One lets people pay for Apple’s premium services with one monthly payment and it could help Apple boost usage numbers for some of its less-popular services.

Tesla’s ‘Full Self-Driving’ software is starting to roll out to select customers

Tesla sent out the first “Full Self-Driving” beta software update to a select group of customers this week, CEO Elon Musk tweeted Tuesday. On an earnings call Wednesday, Musk said more Tesla owners would get the update as the weeks progress, with the goal of a “wide release” by the end of the year.

Only those customers in Tesla’s Early Access Program will receive the software update, that will enable drivers to access Autopilot’s partially automated driver assist system on city streets. The early access program is used as a testing platform to help iron out software bugs.

Musk said that Tesla was approaching this software update “very cautiously” because the “world is a complex and messy place.” In a letter to investors, Tesla said its Autopilot team “has
