Tuesday’s top tech news: a quiet year for E3?

Filed under:

Plus GM’s Hummer EV SUV goes into production, and Paramount’s streaming service gets a rebrand.

E3, the video games trade show which has traditionally served as one of the year’s major press events, could be a much smaller affair in 2023. A new report suggests that the three major console manufacturers, Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft, are all skipping out on the June convention. There’s a chance they could still hold press events that month that aren’t officially part of E3, but it’d be very bad news for the Entertainment Software Association’s flagship event itself.

Elsewhere, GM’s Hummer EV SUV has entered mass production, and the first customers are expected to receive their gigantic electric cars by the end of Q1. The SUV joins the truck version of the Hummer EV, whose deliveries started in late 2021.

And finally, Paramount is reconfiguring its streaming offering to combine Showtime with Paramount Plus. The resulting streaming service will be called, inventively enough, “Paramount Plus with Showtime.” It’s part of a wave of changes coming to streaming players that also include the merger of HBO Max and Discovery Plus.

For now, here’s a silly tweet to start your day:

    Son Gohan and Piccolo are joining the roster of Dragon Ball characters available in Fortnite. The Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud items will be back, too.

  • “Now we’re stuck on this stupid freaking tower in the middle of freaking nowhere.”

    Last August, the movie Fall made headlines for using AI to remove dozens of F-bombs and achieve a PG-13 rating. Now, several months after the movie’s home release, clips of the virtual redubs have been published online by startup Flawless.

    And honestly? The overall effect is far more seamless than I would have originally guessed. Great freakin’ job everyone.
