    Sony says you can't have cross-play because PlayStation is the best

    Sony doesn't want you to play with your Xbox or Switch friends, I argued last June. We've known since 2016 that Sony is the only company standing in the way of buddies being able to team up across PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, since there's no technological limitation. And though Sony has since been shown up by Microsoft and Nintendo, and though Sony enraged the Fortnite community, and though Fallout developer Bethesda has badmouthed Sony about cross-play and threatened to hold another game hostage, and even though PlayStation America CEO Shawn Layden suggested...

    It's Time for Video Game Makers to Unionize

    Once considered a trifle (at best) or an escapist vice (at worst), video games are in fact big business. Huge, really: the video game industry was worth $108 billion in 2017, according to Superdata Research — around one-quarter of the value of the overall software industry. The creators of the video game hits today have little in common with their forebears: Myst, the best-selling video game of the 1990s, was created by the brothers Rand and Robyn Miller with help from five friends.

    Potential Battlefield 5 leak suggests June reveal and December release date

    Upon closer inspection it seems that this leak might not be referencing a WW1 setting but a futuristic one, possibly in the vein of Battlefield 2142. Still a leak, though, and it claims to be BF5 and not a sequel to 2142 so take it for what it is. Who’s up for some Battlefield 5 news? Well, perhaps ‘news’ isn’t the best term here since we’re talking about a leak that may or may not be legit, but you get the idea.

    The Legendary Creator of Metal Gear Solid on His Weird New Game

    When Hideo Kojima, the celebrated creator of the Metal Gear Solid videogame franchise, took the stage at Sony’s press conference during E3, all he needed to say was two words: “I’m back!” The crowd jumped to its feet and responded with rapturous, sustained applause. Kojima, 52, is revered among gamers and perhaps best described as the medium’s Steven Spielberg, though David Lynch might be a more apt comparison. Metal Gear Solid set a standard for cinematic storytelling, and he infuses every game with a personal, often esoteric, authorial flair.

    Star Citizen 3.0's planetary landing blows No Man's Sky away

    This week at Gamescom, Roberts Space Industries showed off version 3.0 of Star Citizen, introducing the game's planetary tech. For backers playing Star Citizen in its 2.4 or 2.5 versions, they begin on a space station, and they can cruise around together in some spiffy-looking spaceships, but it's mostly about combat, with a limited sandbox component as well. 3.0, which is coming towards the end of this year, brings the first proper star system in Star Citizen to life, and is a major step towards making this universe feel like a gigantic backdrop.

    Battlefield 1 has only 5 singleplayer episodes

    According to DICE, there will be 5 different “War Stories” to choose from in Battlefield 1 singleplayer campaign. They are designed to encompass different theaters of WWI, like the Arabian theater (recall the Lawrence of Arabia) or the European theatre. The details of the 5 playable War Stories have been specified by DICE. The fact that they are named “War Stories” instead of plain, old missions probably lies in the fact that there are only 5 of them, which might cause an uproar in a large portion of Battlefield community.

    Elite Dangerous' mysterious aliens have just declared war

    The Thargoids did not come in peace. For nearly a year, players have been hunting for signs of extraterrestrial life in the virtual galaxy of Elite. Then, several months ago, one pilot made first contact with an assumed Thargoid vessel. At the time, the alien vessel appeared to scan him before warping off. Now, hours after the launch of update 2.4 which Frontier Developments ominously named The Return, player reports have begun flowing in that the mysterious Thargoids are on the offensive—and they're packing some powerful weaponry to boot.
