Sony’s PSN Hits 70 Million Monthly Active Users

Tyler Lee May 23, 2017

Companies such as Sony and Microsoft have their own online gaming networks in which PlayStation and Xbox gamers can play multiplayer games (not together). In Sony’s case, it is the PlayStation Network (PSN) which seems to be growing because according to Sony’s latest figures (via VG247), PSN has hit 70 million monthly active users.

This is actually rather impressive especially when you think about the fact that this means at least 70 million players from all around the world are logged into Sony’s PSN and are playing games and chatting with each other on a monthly basis. To give you guys some context, Sony’s PSN is now boasting a higher monthly active user count compared to Microsoft’s Xbox Live.

Earlier this year in January, it was revealed that Xbox Live was playing host to 55 million monthly active users. We’re sure that the number has probably increased since then, although whether or not it has reached PSN levels or even higher remains to be seen, but until we see the official figures, Sony’s PSN is in the lead.

In addition to these figures, it seems that Sony is boasting how its PlayStation Plus service has managed to hit 26.4 million subscribers, up by over 6 million users from the year before.

Bungie Says PS4 Pro Can’t Run Destiny 2 At 60fps

Tyler Lee May 20, 2017

Earlier this week when Bungie announced that Destiny 2 would be arriving for the PC, they also revealed that that there would be an advantage to playing the game on the PC, which is that if you have necessary hardware, you’ll be able to run the game at a smooth 60fps, if not even higher.

The console version of the other hand would be locked at 30fps, even the PS4 Pro which is supposed to be a more powerful version of the PS4. However speaking to PC Gamer, it seems that the PS4 Pro was not capable of running the game at 60fps due to apparently there not being enough horsepower.

According to the game director David Shaw, “It will not run at 60 on the Pro. I don’t want people to continue to hope, we’re going to be matter-of-fact about stuff like this… The PS4 Pro is super-powerful, but it couldn’t run our game at 60. Our game’s this rich physics simulation, with collision and players, networking etc. It wouldn’t run. Not enough horsepower there yet.”

However we should note that the game will run at 4K resolution at 30fps, so we guess while the frame rate won’t be buttery smooth, playing it on the PS4 Pro should result in better quality textures.

Destiny 2 For The PC Will Only Be Released After The Console Launch

Tyler Lee May 19, 2017

Yesterday the folks at Bungie announced Destiny 2, the sequel to Destiny that was released several years ago. One of the more exciting parts of the announcement was the fact that the game would be launched on the PC (and exclusively available via Blizzard’s Battle.net platform).

The game was announced for a release on the 8th of September, 2017, but it turns out there is a catch. As it turns out the PC release of Destiny 2 will not take place on the 8th of September, but instead it will be launched at a later date. We knew that there would exclusive PS4 content and we’re not sure if this might have anything to do with the PC version being launched later.

However according to Destiny 2’s creative director Luke Smith who spoke to PC Gamer, it seems that maybe extra work needs to be done on the PC version before it is released, hence the “delay”. “We’re not committed to a PC date yet. Our partnership with Blizzard and being on Battle.net, we want to make sure that this version of the game has the time it needs to bake in the oven so it’s a delicious piece of bread when it comes out.”

According to the FAQ on Blizzard’s website, more details are expected to be shared later this year. “Bungie is actively working through the global details. We look forward to sharing additional information later this year.”

Resident Evil Revelations Xbox One, PS4 Gameplay Trailer Released

Tyler Lee May 16, 2017

A couple of months ago back in March, Capcom announced that they will be bringing Resident Evil Revelations onto the PS4 and Xbox One. The game was originally designed for the Nintendo 3DS before it was eventually ported onto the PC, the PS3, Xbox 360, and the Wii U, and if you’re wondering what the game will look like, you’re in luck.

Resident Evil Revelations was released in 2012 which means that it is considered somewhat dated by now. However given that it will be brought onto the PS4 and Xbox One, obviously certain upgrades in the graphics department had to be made, and now thanks to gameplay trailers released for both platforms, we can have a look at what to expect.

The game itself will remain largely the same but as you can tell from the trailer, it looks a little different from its predecessor, but we suppose in a good way. The game has currently been pegged for a release in Japan come 31sth of August, but at the moment there is no mention of when it will be released in North America or Europe, save for a vague timeframe of Autumn 2017.

There is also mention of whether or not it will be released for the Nintendo Switch, given that it found its way onto the Wii U, so we guess maybe Switch gamers shouldn’t hold their breaths for now.

Bethesda Explains Why They’re Keeping Mum On Fallout Shelter For PS4

Tyler Lee May 16, 2017

Fallout Shelter is Bethesda’s first mobile gaming effort which has proven to be rather successful, so much so that they eventually expanded it to cover more platforms such as the Xbox One and Windows PCs. However this has left some gamers wondering if it will eventually find its way onto the PS4 as well.

Back in February Bethesda’s Pete Hines answered with a “Dunno” and the company has kept quiet ever since which has led to some fans speculating about it. To that end, Hines has since revealed why Bethesda has kept mum on the issue. In a post on Twitter, he said, “in general, we never talk about whether we will or won’t do games/platform/etc. if it isn’t announced, we don’t talk about it, either way.”

@HillKandace Sorry but that opens up a can of worms where everyone asks about every single possible project or game because they expect an answer.

— Pete Hines (@DCDeacon) May 14, 2017

As to why not just outright reject the notion if they do not have plans? According to Hines, this is because it will set a precedent that they’d rather not deal with. “Sorry but that opens up a can of worms where everyone asks about every single possible project or game because they expect an answer.”

We suppose that’s fair and for now whether or not Fallout Shelter will arrive on the PS4 remains to be seen, however given Bethesda’s lack of reply and the reasoning behind launching it on the Xbox One, maybe gamers shouldn’t get their hopes up. In the meantime PS4 gamers can always opt to play the game on their mobile phones as an alternative, which was pretty the platform the game was designed for anyway.

Survey Finds More People Interested In Switch Than PS4 Pro, Project Scorpio

Tyler Lee May 11, 2017

When it comes to this generation’s consoles, most people see the fight as mostly being between Microsoft and Sony. This is namely because Microsoft and Sony’s consoles are close to each other in terms of power, which means that games released on one console can typically be found on the other except when it comes to exclusives.

However things could be changing because in a recent survey conducted, it has been reported that more gamers are interested in the Nintendo Switch compared to the likes of the PS4 Pro or the upcoming Project Scorpio from Microsoft. According to the numbers in the Nielsen Games 360 Report, 16% of gamers aged 13 and up said that they would probably buy the Switch.

This is versus the 15% for the PS4 Pro and 13% for Project Scorpio, although in all fairness Project Scorpio has yet to be revealed in full. This trend continues with the general population as well, with 12% expressing interest in the Switch, versus 11% for the PS4 Pro and 9% for Project Scorpio.

There is some debate as to whether or not this is a fair or accurate survey, and as some comments have pointed out, it was not taken into account whether or not the gamers already had a PS4 or Xbox One to begin with. After all since the PS4 Pro and Project Scorpio are supposed to play the same games as their predecessors, not all gamers might see the need to upgrade and could be interested in a different platform instead.

Tekken Producer Pushing For PS4/Xbox One Cross-Play

Tyler Lee May 1, 2017

One advantage to PC games is that you get to play multiplayer games with other PC gamers regardless of what brand or specs that they are using, as long as it runs the game and they have an internet connection, you’re good to go. Console players on the other hand are different, where Sony and Microsoft offer up their own online services that don’t typically allow cross-play.

Unfortunately that’s not going to change soon as far as Tekken 7 is concerned, but the game’s producer Katsuhiro Harada revealed to GameSpot that this is something that they are pushing for. According to Harada, it isn’t so much the technical hurdles but rather the security protocols that makes cross-play almost impossible at the moment.

He was quoted as saying (via a translator in the form of producer Michael Murray), “Since Tekken has three platforms, to do [cross-play] is much more difficult because fighting games are peer-to-peer, which means you connected directly to your opponent. That means all the security protocols regarding PSN or Xbox Live, the user IDs and such, is quite difficult to match that–not technologically.”

However since it seems unlikely that Sony or Microsoft will be changing their security policies anytime soon, Harada doesn’t think that cross-play is possible for Tekken 7 at this point in time. “[But] until there is some kind of progress between the first-parties adapting their security policies and just policy in general regarding online, to allow that, it’s not going to be viable at this time. It’s not to say that’s the case forever. But until they change their policies, there’s not a whole lot we can do.”

Sony’s PS4 Worldwide Shipments Have Reached 60 Million

Tyler Lee April 28, 2017

It is without doubt that as far as current-gen consoles are concerned, Sony’s PS4 is leading the way and according to Sony’s latest financials (via NeoGAF; via Gematsu), it seems that they will not be slowing down anytime soon. According to the latest numbers, Sony has managed to ship a whopping 60 million PS4 consoles worldwide to date.

Note that Sony is using the term “shipped” as opposed to “sold”. This is because shipping units means that they could be sending them off to various retailers who will then sell the console. However since retailers usually order based on the demand that they are seeing, sometimes the number of units sold and shipped aren’t too far apart.

According to Sony, they claim that 20 million PS4 units were shipped in the fiscal year of 2016 which ran from the 1st of April, 2016 to the 31st of March, 2017. The company is also predicting that they will be able to ship an additional 18 million PS4s in the fiscal year of 2017 which kicked off earlier this month and will run to March 31, 2018.

Assuming that is the case, Sony will be looking at close to 80 million PS4s shipped worldwide next year. Microsoft has yet to release their figures so we’re not sure where they stand, but last we heard the Nintendo Switch managed close to 3 million and are predicting an additional 10 million within its first year.

Rainway App Lets Gamers Stream PC Games Onto Consoles

Tyler Lee April 25, 2017

We get why there are games developed for PC, and why there are games developed for consoles. However if you wished that you didn’t need to swap between devices to play different games, your wish could soon come true thanks to the development of an app called Rainway, an app that reportedly lets you stream PC games onto consoles or other devices.

According to its developer Andrew Sampson, “Rainway’s signature feature is that it’s available on any device with a web browser. You’ll simply visit play.rainway.io, log in, and kick back with your favorite games. Native apps for Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and other platforms are being developed to provide an even more seamless experience.”

This means that you’ll be able to enjoy PC-only games on your console, although we guess playing some games using a gaming pad might offer up a slightly different experience. Sampson is also claiming that any modern PC is compatible and that no additional hardware will be required. “The best part is that practically any modern PC is compatible. You don’t need to purchase any additional computer hardware and did we mention that it’s free? That’s right, no more 50 dollar boxes or subscription fees, the Rainway experience will be available free of charge for life.”

The app has yet to be launched but as it stands there will be a beta that will be held on the 5th of May, so gamers who are interested in taking part can sign up via its website.
