In celebration of the series’s 25th anniversary, Pokémon will have a virtual concert on Feb. 27 featuring rapper Post Malone. You can “catch” the show at 7 p.m. ET that day, across various Pokémon channels. Additionally, more festivities will be occurring in the week leading up to the concert. The announcement of the concert comes by way of the official Pokémon Company YouTube channel, featuring a quick look at what to expect. Check it out below! This is part of a larger push by The Pokémon Company and Universal Music Group to create music to commemorate the 25th anniversary.

CD Project Fail
Dark web monitoring organisation KELA (which previously provided The Verge with what it believes to be legitimate file lists from CD Projekt’s Red Engine) reports that an auction set up to sell the files has now been closed after a “satisfying offer” was made from outside of the forum it was being held on. That offer reportedly stipulates that the code will not be distributed or sold further. Cybersecurity account vx-underground also reported that it had heard the sale was completed.
In a report aided by KELA yesterday, The Verge explained that the auction required a deposit to enter (intended to show potential buyers that this wasn’t a scam auction), with bids starting at $1,000,000, moving up in $500,000 increments. Vx-underground also reported that source code (or at least fragments of source code) for Gwent had been released, which could have been another showing of proof that the files were in hand before the auction.
Mat Piscatella of the NPD Group released the sales results for January 2021 today, revealing that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was the month’s bestselling game in the United States. On top of that, the shooter has managed to become the 20th bestselling game ever in the U.S. This might not sound impressive, but considering it’s only been on the market since November 2020, it’s remarkable the game has sold so quickly. The full NPD Twitter thread can be seen below.
