  • 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.

    Sony made a statement a few days ago that they're open to discuss this, so it's at least in motion!

    • Returnal players have discovered the presence of "cheat codes" in the PS5 game that can only be triggered by a keyboard. Likely intended to facilitate debugging and game testing for developers, the shortcuts allow you to spawn weapons in front of you and give you the ability to teleport back to your ship with most of your gear and build. The cheats have since been patched out, but if you own the game on disc and manage to avoid the patches, you can still use them, though that's very much at your own risk. The cheats were apparently uncovered by YouTube user TheRandomizer, who posted a video detailing their use on May 3. A Redditor posted the codes to the Returnal subreddit a day later. As the following images reveal, it's pretty easy to spawn a roomful of weapons by using these codes. However, it seems that the return to ship cheat shouldn't be used after Biome 3 or during Biome 4, as it will teleport you back to the ship location in Biome 1, which results in lost progress. Returnal is an action roguelike with strong Metroid vibes that has received strong reviews from critics since its release in April. If you're curious how long the game takes to beat, or if you're looking for a beginner's guide, we have articles on both those subjects. Since its release, some players have requested a "save and quit" option so they can pause a run and resume it later, but not everyone agrees that's an essential feature. Another patch is coming soon that will fix a nasty save corruption bug. View the full article
