Psynoix – We Ask Sony About Cross-Play “Every Single Day”

Rocket_League_coverart

At this past E3 Psyonix the developers of Rocket League announced that the game would be coming to the Nintendo Switch. But also that it would support Cross-Play with Xbox One and PC. But Sony has blocked this from happening with the PlayStation 4. Psyonix’s Jeremy Dunham stated in an recent interview that “There have been slight variations on how it’s been presented to us, but essentially it’s the same answer,” that he told Engadget. “It’s, ‘Not right now” or, ‘It’s something we’ll consider.’ That’s paraphrasing, but there hasn’t been any movement.” So it seems in the immediate future  that Sony will not be on the Cross-Play with consoles train. What do you think?

Steep Xtreme Pack DLC: Official Trailer

“It’s time to gather your friends and hit the slopes once more for three new sports releasing as a part of Steep’s Extreme Pack DLC on June 27th. ”

“Think you can maneuver through the air at breakneck speeds amongst the mountains? You’ll want to head right for the Rocket Wingsuit events and see if your reflexes are up to the challenge. Maybe you prefer a more leisurely glide across the slopes with an occasional burst of speed to vary things up? Speed Skiing will give you the opportunity to take in the sights as you swiftly glide from area to area before touching down with your skis to gain some speed and show off your skills. Finally, Base Jump will give all thrill seekers a chance to jump from the top of the mountain and enjoy a ripping ride down the cliffside before pulling your ‘chute and safely touching down.”

“The Xtreme Pack DLC is coming June 27 for standalone purchase and is included with the Gold Edition and Season Pass. New features include:
• Rocket wings
• Base jumping
• Speed gliding
• New, fresh challenges”

Grand Theft Auto V just won’t stop chugging. It has spent a total of 13 weeks at number 1 in the UK since it’s release, which just shows how insane of a hit this title is.

Top 10 UK Sales Chart

  1. Grand Theft Auto V
  2. Dirt 4

  5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

  9. Forza Horizon 3
  10. Tekken 7

Titanfall 2 War Games DLC Adds a Third Weapon Slot

3252579-t1

In Respawn’s latest blog post, they talked about the addition of a third weapon slot to the game. Now being more similar to the first game, anti-titan weapons will have their own slot separate from the secondary section. Which in my opinion is a great change, and was a feature I was missing in this title. Titanfall 2 War Games comes out tomorrow for free, adding a new map, new weapons, new features.

Jeff Kaplan at Blizzard stated “We are going to make significant improvements to the loot box experience,” Kaplan explains, stating that the team is going to “drastically reduce the rate of duplicates that you’ll get out of any loot box.” So this means a drastic decrease in getting sprays from lootboxes constantly. A great thing to happen here.
