Meanwhile Bailey the bunny eats two PlayStation controllers, and we learn about the kind of information you’re giving away when you play games in VR. With Leigh Milner and Chris Berrow.

A new James Bond game is coming… developed by the same team who have just released Hitman III… at the moment this new project is codenamed... Project 007… amazing. We know James Bond in the game is not going to be based on any of the actors who have previously played the spy. I wonder if it will take as long to come out as the latest film No Time to Die, which keeps getting delayed… hopefully not.
Last month we mentioned how excited we were that Prince of Persia Sands of Time is being remade… well for a game that’s all about controlling time… hilariously it has been delayed.
In South Korea cinemas are letting you hire out the entire auditorium for you and your friends. Because lots of them are closed, or can only operate at 50% capacity... it’s one way of bringing in extra money.
And finally, in a post published to Instagram by Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi Biden, you can clearly see the new US President playing Mario Kart Arcade GP DX at the Presidential retreat “Camp David”. Apparently he was “a little rusty but still won”. It’s the biggest win in his life so far. Apart from… you know… winning the presidential election.
