Following the publication of the news about the anti-Semitic content in "The Sims 4", which includes characters designed by the players as Adolf Hitler and "disgusting Jews", the Electronic Arts company, the marketer of The Sims, responded to the inquiry of "Israel Today" regarding the disturbing phenomenon.

According to the company, "The Sims condemns anti-Semitism of any kind. We recently learned that inappropriate content (surfers - DP) was uploaded to the "Sims 4" gallery, and because of this we made critical updates to the content filter to address this issue. The content filter prevents players from uploading Content with names or descriptions that include words and terms that are considered inappropriate."

An end to the disturbing phenomenon?

We encourage players to review the EA Positive Play Charter (a charter detailing ways of positive and fair play) to learn more about appropriate content and our commitment to a positive game."

Coming soon in a horror game.

As a reminder, this is not the only gaming project that Harbor will appear in in 2023, as a film based on the "Gran Turismo" series of racing games, in which the star will play a worn-out driver who takes under his wing a promising young driver, will hit the screens this summer.

The film will also star: Orlando Bloom as a shrewd marketing man, and Geri Halliwell from the Spice Girls as the mother of the young driver.

Seventy Boom

Microsoft announced that starting next year, the official price of exclusive Xbox games will increase to $70, compared to $60 as they are currently priced.

Therefore, coated titles such as Starfield, Redfall and the Forza Motorsport reboot will cost the consumer about 17 percent more, and it is expected that the price increase will also be translated into local currencies around the world.

Will free up more space in the wallet.

Despite the price increase, it will be clarified that already two years ago Sony raised the price of its PlayStation 5 exclusive games to $70, as well as other leading companies such as Ubisoft, Activision and Take Two, so that Microsoft is actually aligning with them.

In addition, Microsoft emphasized that it will continue to launch the exclusive games on the day they go to stores also in the Game Pass service at no additional charge - a move that Sony avoids imitating its competing PlayStation Plus service.

Wait, that too will eventually come.
