However, Minecraft Dungeons still supports both local and online co-op with up to four players at launch, meaning you can still enjoy its multiplayer elements as long as it's on the same platform. But Mojang Studios does note that local co-op and online co-op cannot be played at the same time at launch--so you can either team up with friends locally or connect online, but not both at once. … [Read more...] about Minecraft Dungeons: Is Crossplay Supported On PC, PS4, Xbox One, And Switch?

Many third-party publishers have already confirmed they will support Microsoft's Smart Delivery method for cross-gen ownership on Xbox, designed to serve the best version of a game for the platform you are playing on. Ubisoft will use this to provide cross-gen ownership of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, as will CD Projekt Red with Cyberpunk 2077. (EA, meanwhile, has decided some of its games will have a limited-time "upgrade" window.) … [Read more...] about New PS4 games must also run on PlayStation 5 from July, Sony tells devs
PS5 UIPlayStation 5's new user interface will allow you to see more details about friends' games without opening the applications themselves. "Even though it will be fairly fast to boot games," says Cerny, "We don't want the player to have to boot the game, see what's up, boot the game, see what's up. Multiplayer game servers will provide the console with the set of joinable activities in real time. Single-player games will provide information like what missions you could do and what rewards you might receive for completing them—and all of those choices will be visible in the UI. As a player you just jump right into whatever you like." … [Read more...] about PlayStation 5: Everything We Know About It — Reveal Event, Launch Games, PS5 Release Date Rumors, And More
He also discussed how backwards compatibility will be approached in the PS5 internally, and how the functionality will not be removed upon subsequent console iterations given the nature of their approach to designing the feature. "One way you can achieve backwards compatibility is to put the previous console's chip set into the new console, like we did with some PlayStation 3s," he said."But that's, of course, extremely expensive. A better way is to incorporate any differences in the previous console's logic into the new console's custom chip. Meaning that, even as the technology evolves, the logic and feature set that the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro titles rely on is still available in backwards compatibility mode. One advantage of this strategy is that, once backwards compatibility is in the console, it's in. It's not as if a cost down will remove backwards compatibility like it did on PlayStation 3." … [Read more...] about PlayStation 5: Everything We Know — Launch Games, Reveal, PS5 Release Date Rumors, And More
Although much of the video game hype this year is around a pair of next-generation consoles, being able to play any kind of video game on a Nintendo Switch is still more than enough for us right now. The Switch thrives because of its versatility in both genre and content (we're finally getting a slew of M-rated titles on a Nintendo device, though families can set parental controls to filter that stuff for their kids). You can play for long stretches on your TV with the Joy-Con or Switch Pro Controller, or you can enjoy your favorite Nintendo Switch game on the go in handheld mode, and you even get motion controls that improve on the fidelity of the Wii Remote's. Multiplayer games, single-player games--they all play beautifully on Nintendo's hybrid device, even if some titles don't run as well as they do on other consoles. We're more than willing to give up graphical fidelity (and occasionally the lack of a robust online multiplayer experience) for the sake of convenience. … [Read more...] about Nintendo Switch Buying Guide 2020: Consoles, Controllers, Cases, And More
