Fortnite is testing true cross-platform play as Sony finally ease up

Fortnite has already taken over the world, but after an announcement on Sony's PlayStation Blog today, I might be willing to give it some tentative credit in ending the console war, too. Or starting a new one. After months of Sony taking up Microsoft's old miserly crown and saying that cross-platform play between PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC players just wasn't on the cards,…

You can now play God of War III and Killzone Shadow Fall on PC

The PlayStation Now streaming service hasn't got a lot of love since it launched last year. That's probably because of the price: it's a keen £12.50 a month to stream PS games to your desktop or laptop. But there are a lot of great titles there, and it's the only way to get the likes of Red Dead Redemption, Heavy Rain, and Shadow of the Colossus…

PlayStation 4 Remote Play Comes To PC Today

If you have a PlayStation 4, from today you can use the Remote Play feature to stream games from it to a PC. The promised support arrives with today's system software update 3.50, and Sony have released a Remote Play application for Windows and Mac to match. It's a bit of a niche feature, useful in far fewer situations than Remote Play on e.g. a…

PlayStation 4 Remote Play Officially Coming To PC

As was made abundantly clear last month, the modern age has failed us by way of flying DeLoreans, hoverboards, and self-drying, self-fitting jackets. The wonder of playing games remotely, on the other hand, is very much a reality. The Steam Link plays PC games on TVs, Xbox One games can be mirrored on Windows 10, and upcoming official PlayStation 4 Remote Play support will let…

Platform Wars: War Thunder Connecting PC And PS4

Which is better, PC or PlayStation 4? There's only one way to settle this: realising that it's a daft question and a petty argument entirely unworthy of your precious time. Why war over platforms when you can war across platforms? War Thunder is bringing PC and PlayStation 4 together for a spot of friendly murdering, introducing cross-platform multiplayer "very, very soon." Why bicker when you…

Interview: Oculus’ Luckey Promises Big Pre-Facebook

Now here's a weird thing: when the news broke that Facebook had suddenly made Oculus VR's reality much, much greener, you want to know what I was doing? Transcribing a last-day-of-GDC interview with... Oculus Rift's resident wonderchild, Palmer Luckey. In retrospect, he almost certainly knew his company would be under Facebook's globe-spanning blue umbrella come Tuesday, but that obviously never came up. Instead, Luckey spoke…

Fear Not: Energy Hook ‘PS4/Vita First,’ But Only On Console

A series of troubling headlines emerged recently, claiming that airborne acrobatic fanatic (and distant Spider-Man 2 relative) Energy Hook would be coming to PlayStation first - in other words, before PC. If true, this would've been especially upsetting given that the game's $41,000 Kickstarter tethered its neon beam rope to PC, Mac, and Linux. "You funded this for your platform of choice," developer Happion would've…

If It’s Any Consolation, Oculus Rift Will Stay PC-Only

We have entered a two-week maelstrom of "next-gen" (heh) console-mania, and after only a few days, I am fully prepared to give it RPS' official Golden Hangnail Of Extreme Dedication To Tireless Tedium. Two eerily similar hyper-proprietary boxes that everyone can't stop arguing over for incredibly petty, inconsequential reasons? Gee, we've never been here before. But hey, on the upside, this increasingly spotty, irrelevant console…

Build A Better-Than-Xbox-One/PS4 PC For £500

Well, don't take that entirely literally. I'm just writing that to get your attention and/or I can't think of a more accurate way to do it within the character limit. Obviously you can't build your own Xbox One or PlayStation 4 - they use some custom hardware not available to PC-builders to do their next-generation thing, they're running bespoke operating systems (and all the horror-DRM…

E3 2013, Next-Gen, And PC’s Bizarre Invisibility Problem

After sitting through nearly all of E3's press conferences (and catching up on Microsoft's, which I skipped to marvel at my super cutting-edge next-gen loft sink), I came away with two raucously growling gut reactions: 1) new Mirror's Edge yes yes yes yay yes mmm-hmm yes good indeed and 2) did I just step into an alternate dimension where PC never emerged from the primordial gaming…
