  • Microsoft needs help from Sony


    Hells Warrrior

    this week, Microsoft revealed that it is working to support cross-platform and cross-network play on Xbox One - aka PS4 vs Xbox One multiplayer. So that means in the future, you could be playing online multiplayer titles with your PC and PS4 friends on your Xbox One. 

    But, as expected, Microsoft won't be able to do this alone. 

    "Most of you probably noticed that we made an announcement saying that we're now enabling cross-network play support. So if a developer wants to cross game networks, we'll support them on our side," explained Jason Roland, Head of the Xbox Advanced Technology Group. 

    "Obviously we need support from the other supporting networks, but we're working with the first wave of titles on this and we'll start releasing titles very soon that show the ability to actually cross networks together."

    So that means Microsoft is going to need Sony's help to enable cross-platform play between the Xbox One and PS4. Will Sony be up for that? We're not sure, as it seems there's not much in it for them. 

    However, Microsoft believes that it will be very appealing for developers. 

    "From a developer's perspective, this is really about increasing the player pool - making sure that you have the largest audience possible. That you're not letting your ecosystem be restricted by whether they bought it on PC, or they bought it on Xbox, or they bought it on another console.

    "We want to give [developers] the tools to make sure [they] have the largest player base possible and [they] can keep that player base engaged in [that] franchise," added Roland.

      My "space flower and rainbow" pic were painted by my gf in the 80s. We're still friends, I was at her wedding in 2019.
       
      From 1960-something to about 2000, the rainbow flag was the all inclusive symbol of acid freaks and usually dead heads (Grateful Dead). At the turn of the century, our flag and motto were usurped by the gay community, which was mildly awkward. I don't care at all if someone is homosexual, but my pic is the old school hetero acid freak flag for any who contemplate these things and wonder. 
       
      Note the diamond stars: "shall we go, you and I, through the transitive nightfall of diamonds" -Dark Star, Grateful Dead.
       
      Happy gaming!

    • Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is finally here, and one part of the military FPS that people are particularly enjoying is the campaign and its story. The Black Ops brand has always had a special flavor to it. It is less serious--remember this?!--and more narratively open-minded than the ripped-from-the-headlines storylines in the other historical and modern Call of Duty games. With Black Ops Cold War, the game's story plays with history and covers real historical events, but with a healthy amount of conspiracy theories and deniable operations baked in. With that in mind, we connected with former Australian Security Intelligence Organisation operative David Callan (who has since become a comedian, but more on that later), who told us about his experience as a counterintelligence officer. Callan worked for the ASIO in the '80s and '90s, which was a stormy time for international politics and clandestine operations. Callan shared stories and insight from his time in the service, and he also discussed what he thinks Black Ops Cold War, which is set in early 1980s, gets right about its depiction of the era.

    • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War marked a return to the incredibly popular Zombies mode after it wasn't included in Modern Warfare. The mode, which is a big part of the Treyarch-developed Call of Duty games, is the reason many players purchase every edition of the yearly franchise. The new Zombies mode only has one map, though. Treyarch has said that more maps and other additions to the mode are coming, but players already want more. If it's just more content they want, they'll find a wealth of options--and a very active community--in the five-year-old Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, which now features hundreds of player-made maps, skins, and other content. Treyarch offers official modding tools to Black Ops 3 via the Steam Workshop, so players can create their ideal fight-til-you-die experience. Maps and other new additions include everything from My Little Pony skins to neon-lined diner levels. There are even recreations of movie locations like Shaun of the Dead's Winchester bar and levels from other games like the Skeld in Among Us. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
