There has long been a battle between consumers and device manufacturers over whether or not they actually won their devices.

State of Play: Sony lays out the next few years of PlayStation games (http://plughitz.live/u/3715)
With the revelation that E3 2022 has been canceled (and likely E3 is over permanently), game companies are trying to figure out how to address gamers with their big news. Some have taken to Summer Games Fest (https://www.summergamefest.com/), which is being called the “New E3” by some. Others, like Sony, have decided to hold their own events outside of any established schedules. Sony’s State of Play occurred this week, and the company showed off a lot of games coming in the next few years.

Netflix struggles with password sharing crackdown policy enforcement (http://plughitz.live/u/3717)
Netflix has long had a policy against password sharing. Officially, an account is only to be used within a household. However, sharing passwords among friends has become a big thing. Now, Netflix is looking for ways to limit the amount of password sharing happening, but the tests in Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru have not been going quite as well as the company had hoped.
