Sony’s latest game console is the PlayStation 5, and it is selling well, though there have been a series of talks and previews of the flagship on a newer model soon to come, the PlayStation 6. However, the worldwide chip scarcity is harming several businesses, including Sony. The business has been attempting to boost the availability of PlayStation 5 gaming systems.
Sony revealed several PlayStation 5s for fortunate gamers today, but a game must be played first. Sony has announced that its “Treat Codes” promotion will go live online. The initiative kicks off today with a random selection of 14 unique codes collected online. These numbers look like the buttons of a PlayStation controller.
The codes will emerge on social media platforms as well as at unexpected locations throughout the globe. Sports, games, movies, and music concerts are examples of such places.
If gamers discover the strange code, they must go to Sony’s official website’s event page, paste the code, and answer the questions. This provides the gamer with the opportunity to win a Sony PlayStation 5 console. This event’s deadline is March 7th and as a result, prospective contestants have only three weeks to find the codes and answer the questions.
Regrettably, not all areas are eligible to participate in this game contest as it is restricted to only 40 nations, and the eligible nations are mentioned below.
Countries Eligible For Sony “Treats Codes”
Argentina, Canada, Chile, Mexico, The United States, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, South, Taiwan, Thailand, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Russia, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Auckland, New Zealand, Poland, The United Kingdom
Updates for the PlayStation 5
Sony adds a new feature to the PS5 that allows you to upload game screenshots or screen recordings to your phone. On January 25th, Sony secretly unveiled a new function for the Sony PlayStation 5.
According to Sony, this new feature enables players to capture high-definition screenshots and video recordings of games and upload them to a smartphone. This function was only accessible in beta systems in Canada and Japan when it launched in October 2021. By downloading the PlayStation App on their smartphones, users can transfer media directly from the PS5 to their smartphones.
How To Enable PlayStation 5 HD Screenshots/Video Recording
To enable this function, you need to follow some steps.
- First, the user needs to enter the PS5’s media library and click on the icon that looks like a camera. Once opened, you can see the prompt, and enable the “Auto Upload” option. Or users can go to Settings > Capture & Broadcast > Capture and find the Enable switch.
- After enabling this feature, PS5 will automatically upload screenshots and video clips to the cloud, which users may access through their mobile phones. It should be noted that after activating it on the PS5, you must restart the mobile PlayStation App, after which a notice will appear indicating that the feature has been activated.
