Other users have reported issues with Godfall, Demon’s Souls, Spider-Man Remastered, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and the Disney+ app.Reportedly, users who got in touch with Activision regarding the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War issue were asked to factory reset their console and that fixed the issue. But it would not be possible for all users to completely erase their PS5’s storage to be able to download these games. There seems to be no other fix in sight.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Gadgets 360 has reached out to Sony for clarity on this bug and will update this report when we hear back.Will Xbox Series S, PS5 Digital Edition fail in India?

PlayStation 5 users are experiencing a bug that prevents them from downloading certain games and apps. This bug is causing games and apps to get stuck at ‘Queued for Download’ or in an error state, as per a report. This seems to be happening when a product is first set to download. What’s even more frustrating than being unable to download a game is that the PS5 library shows that you own the game, but the PS5 Store says that you don’t.According to a report by IGN citing users and its own staff members, PlayStation 5 has been hit by its first bug right after launch. Users have reported that their games and apps are stuck at ‘Queued for Download’ or show a download error.

This prevents users from downloading the game or cancelling the game to try and re-download.- Advertisement –
by Malik VincentAt season’s beginning, the Allderdice boy’s basketball team was the clear favorite to repeat in the City League.On Feb. 15, they were upset by Peabody (8-7, 9-8), 59-51, in what was the final home game in history for the Highlanders basketball program. TWO POINTS—Bruce Grover of Perry lays in two of his 12 points in the Commodores 71-69 win over Allderdice. Peabody’s coach Tim Broderick Sr. and others from the athletic department were unreachable for comment.“Peabody played a good game,” said Allderdice coach Andre McDonald. “We were without two of our starters. They simply outworked us and handed us a tough road loss.”The City League playoffs begin Wed., Feb. 23. At Courier press time there were several playoff-seeding possibilities and it was not clear who would face off and when. The second-round will commence on March 1.Allderdice still looks to be a key factor in who is crowned the City League champion on Sat. March 5 at Peabody High School.They feature two of the city’s top scorers in Justin Dobbs and Ben Mickens.Dobbs is a player whose leadership skills and uncanny scoring ability propels the Dragons’ offense. He currently averages 20.4 points per game. Mickens complements that style and his size gives him an advantage over most. He’s their second-leading scorer (15.5 per game).The top dogs, Perry (14-1, 18-3), are looking to avenge their loss to Allderdice in last year’s title game.Their point guard Marcus Smith has tremendous athletic ability and can help the Commodores bring back the title to Perry. Off-guard Bruce Grover brings a consistent jump shot to their offense and forward Greg McGhee’s solid frame and pure talent will give them an edge, as well.Schenley (11-5 14-8) may have the most prolific scorer in the City League right now in 5-foot-9 senior guard Brandon Johnson. His size is no indicator of the way he can stymie opposing defenses with his all-around scoring arsenal. He’s had multiple 40-point games for the Spartans.Peabody has one of the best players in the city in Dontae Forte. At the forward position, he’s put up 20-point performances on a consistent basis. The Highlanders could be a surprise team in this year’s playoffs.Joining Peabody, only Carrick (12-7, 10-5) and the Spartans will be legitimate challengers to Perry and Allderdice for the City League title.Guards Rasheed McKamey and Lafon Pace, as well as forward Mike Talton will lead the Raiders into the postseason, all of which have put up double-figured games throughout the season.Eight of the nine teams will be in the playoffs, with the team with the best record playing the team with the worst. Only Langley boys and Oliver girls are out.STANDINGSTeam Conf. Overall1. Perry 14-1 18-32. Allderdice 11-4 13-73. Schenley 11-4 14-84. Carrick 10-5 12-75. Peabody 8-7 9-86. Oliver 5-10 5-167. Brashear 4-11 6-158. Westinghouse 4-11 6-159. Langley 1-14 1-20GIRLSThe Allderdice girls have been the dominant force in the league. With a 15-0 mark, they look to be the favorites to capture another title this year.Led by junior guards Janay Bottoms and DaJai Beasley, the Dragons have won 14 of their last 15 games.Westinghouse comes in a close second with the experience and leadership of their long-time coach, Phyllis Jones. Guard Kayla Key has been a regular double-digit scorer for the Bulldogs.Defending champs, Perry, have two the of the best players in the city in 6-foot-2 post player, Marritta Gilcrease and her teammate Latosha Fortson. All of their wins this season have come in league play.STANDINGS1. Allderdice 15-0 17-42. Westinghouse 16-2 13-53. Brashear 11-4 13-64. Perry 10-5 10-115. Schenley 7-9 7-146. Langley 6-9 10-107.

AKRON, Ohio (AP)—Michael Dokes, a former World Boxing Association heavyweight champion, has died. He was 54.The Rhoden Memorial Home in Akron said Dokes died Aug. 11. The Akron Beacon Journal reported that the boxer died in an Akron hospice from liver cancer.Dokes won the heavyweight title at 24 in December 1982, when referee Joey Curtis made a controversial decision to stop his fight against champion Mike Weaver. Dokes dominated the first round over Weaver, prompting the decision. MICHAEL DOKES An admitted problem with cocaine helped him lose the WBA title only nine months later to Gerrie Coetzee, however, and Dokes never held the heavyweight crown again.Known as “Dynamite” Dokes because he packed a powerful punch, he had a career record of 53-6-2.Dokes came back for one last shot at the big time, getting a February 1993 opportunity at the heavyweight title against Riddick Bowe in New York. He earned $750,000 but didn’t last long, getting knocked out in the first round at Madison Square Garden.He last fought in November 1997, when he weighed 280 pounds.Once regarded by many as one of the most promising young fighters in the game, Dokes succumbed to a cocaine habit that cut his career short. He ran into a string of legal problems that derailed his career.In 1986, Dokes was arrested in Las Vegas for cocaine trafficking and served two years’ probation.In 2000, he was sentenced to 10 years in jail after pleading guilty to attempted murder, second-degree kidnapping and intent to commit sexual assault against his girlfriend. She was held against her will for six hours in the home they shared.At that trial, the victim took the stand to tell of her relationship with Dokes, which stretched over 10 years. She said Dokes, who had two prior felony drug convictions, was a good person when he was clean and sober, which he was for several years during their relationship.But she said drug and alcohol use made Dokes violent, and the violence culminated in the beating and assault when she came home at 5 a.m. from a concert she had attended. She said Dokes punched her in the face and beat her before sexually assaulting her.“I’m remorseful. There’s no excuse for my actions,” Dokes said at the time of his sentencing. “I love that woman with all my heart. I truly wanted to spend the rest of my life with her as husband and wife.”He was released in 2008.In addition to his brother Kevin, Dokes is survived by his sister, Alisa Dokes Williams, and his brothers Steven and Charles.
In this April 26, 2014, file photo, fans cheer as Dallas Mavericks guard Vince Carter stands in the corner after he made the game-winning 3-point basket at the buzzer in the fourth quarter against the San Antonia Spurs in Game 3 in the first round of the NBA basketball playoffs in Dallas. More 3-pointers got shot than ever before in the NBA last season, and everybody, or so it seems, is adding that shot to their repetoire. (AP Photo/LM Otero, File)MIAMI (AP) — The offensive concept of pace-and-space was nearly an unbeatable combination for the Miami Heat, the plan of surrounding LeBron James with multiple shooters good enough to net two straight NBA titles.Plenty of teams are having success with the approach.None more than the San Antonio Spurs, who ended Miami’s championship reign with their pace-and-space attack.Shooters might be valued more now by NBA teams than ever, particularly those who can connect from beyond the 3-point line. More than 86 percent of those who played in the league tried at least one 3-pointer last season, and the most attempts in the history of the league were taken from that distance — continuing a trend and smashing the previous mark that was set just one year earlier.And no one seems to believe the fascination with movement, passing and plenty of 3’s will end anytime soon.“The teams that are playing with the pass and shooting seem to be doing really well,” said Atlanta’s Kyle Korver, one of the league’s best shooters. “I think the Spurs are the model that a lot of teams are understanding that not everyone gets to have LeBron James on their team. Not everyone gets to have one of the few super-dominant, all-pro, superstars in this league and so playing with the pass and playing with space and playing quick is a really good backup.”The Spurs led the league in 3-point accuracy last year, making more shots from deep than ever before.In the playoffs, their percentages got even better, and in the NBA Finals against the Heat they shot a wildly good 47 percent from 3-land.“I hate it,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.No, he wasn’t kidding when he said that in June. Popovich detests the 3-pointer, but in this NBA, it’s a prerequisite.“It’s changed the game,” Popovich said. “It makes it tougher to cover that much room defensively on the court, so you do have to pay attention to it defensively. It’s a heck of a weapon. … To me it’s not basketball but you’ve got to use it. If you don’t, you’re in big trouble.”To wit: Of the 14 teams that made 600 attempts or less from 3-point range last season, 10 didn’t make the playoffs. The other four combined to go 14-21 in the postseason.“All the analytics guys have looked at it and they see the value of the 3-point shot, especially the corner 3-point shot,” Heat forward Danny Granger said. “Teams are obviously game-planning to get those shots and to get shooters to space the court.”It’s not accurate to say everybody in the NBA is shooting 3-pointers.It just seems that way.Kevin Love, Kevin Durant and Paul George were all among the 10 most prolific 3-takers last season — and they’re all listed at 6-foot-9 or taller. James made eight straight 3’s in a game against Charlotte, on his way to a 61-point night. Spencer Hawes and Chris Bosh combined to take more than 500 shots from past the arc — and they’re both 7-footers, give or take an inch.Hawes actually shot a smidge better from long range last season than San Antonio’s Danny Green — who just happens to have record for most 3’s in an NBA Finals.Now the Cavaliers are surrounding James with shooters in Cleveland, including Love.“It’s more of a skilled league,” Orlando coach Jacque Vaughn said. “Just the way fouls are called, the way the offense and the freedom of movement is, if you’re a skilled basketball player there’s a place for you. And skill is shooting the basketball. I think we’re seeing that across the board in our league now.”When Vaughn played, the game was more physical, defenders allowed to do more things within legal limits. Vaughn said the first time he ever had a pick set against him was by longtime league strongman Charles Oakley, and he laughed at saying that he’s “still recovering” from that hit.Suffice to say, there aren’t many Oakleys in today’s game.Finesse is in, force is out.“The game has definitely changed,” Vaughn said.Preseason numbers show more of the same. The Heat took nearly 50 shots from 3-point range in a team scrimmage earlier this month. Corner 3’s seen to tax teams defensive rotations more than anything else, and offenses aren’t going to take away that weapon anytime soon.In short, 3’s are wild in this NBA.“The game that we play today is a different game that was played 10 years ago, 15 years ago, 20 years ago,” Korver said. “Rules are different, philosophies are different, and shooting is a big part of the game. I think for a while people thought that shooting was a lost art in the NBA and I feel like it’s made a huge comeback recently and the trend is that it’s probably going to keep going.”
