Today's News:
1) Update to recent Telltale Games shutdown news as the company recently laid off all of their remaining staff. Supposedly the excuse of needing a small staff to finish Netflix's Minecraft project as the reason why they didn't shut down or declare bankruptcy ended up being a lie.

2) According to a report from Kotaku, Sony is currently working on an upcoming update for PSN featuring the long requested ability to change your username on the service.

3) Nintendo is currently rumored to be releasing a new version of the Switch next year based on a report from the Wall Street Journal. The new model is rumored to feature upgraded display hardware similar to modern smartphones but not Samsung's new OLED tech.

Holy shit, Skybound (Robert Kirkman's entertainment company) is going to continue and finish Telltales The Walking Dead.

No details yet on the deal and whether former employees are getting what they are owed, but in terms of the game, it's getting finished.

Meanwhile, it still leaves many former employees of TTG trying to find some way to support their families, not to mention these employees will likely be in the same boat unless Skybound feels really magnanimous and miraculously keeps them all on board in full or part-time positions.

Now I realize it's probably only another small fraction of the employees but I can't help but think the folks that worked on TFtB would be a great fit for Gearbox to hire to fill some vacancies in working on Borderlands 3.

Cloud based gaming. Will never. Take off. Too many genres require perfect or very little input delay. Unless they're installing fiber cables for every subscriber, every game will feel like playing online games with yellow bars.

The last time I tried any cloud based service was the one compatible with OUYA (I think it was Playcast?)... it was surprisingly able to handle shit like Arkham Asylum (cutting edge for the time) input wise, BUT the big albatross there was PS1 era loading times on any transition. In a world where that has pretty much gone away thanks to mandatory installs, having to wait around for 15-20 seconds every time you go through a door or trigger a cutscene gets old really quickly. Something larger with a lot of moving parts in an area- or worse, a game where the area itself has a metric ton to load - will be like trying to go back and play Mortal Kombat on Sega CD.

... and also, I meant for fun.

My job went from having a local server to a corporate hosted, cloud-based network, and it has sucked copious amounts of ass ever since. It's super slow even when working "properly", and heaven forbid the site go down or the internet peter out on either end (usually theirs). Oho, and I don't even want to talk about when they do updates...

Sony recently confirmed reports of them working on an upcoming update for PSN allowing the ability to change your username on the service.

Similar to Microsoft, the first name change will be free and then $9.99 for each change made afterwards. Not sure if Microsoft gives a discount for Gold members but Sony is offering a 50% discount for PS+ members who want to change their name after the first time.

Although there is a huge kicker and a big reason why Sony waited soo long to actually do this. This is only compatible for PS4 games and only for those released after April due to how usernames were programmed into PSN.

Quote:
Originally Posted by Destructoid

Here's the kicker, because with Sony there usually is one: the name change won't actually work for every game. Sony says the feature is "only compatible with PS4 games originally published after April 2018." They say that not all games and apps will support the ID change (what?) and that "errors may occur." During the preview program you can revert back if the errors are so busted that you can't use programs correctly. Sony will provide a list of supported ID change games (again, this is bizarre that it doesn't just work universally, and a glimpse into Sony's odd infrastructure).

November 2018 is the planned date for the preview program with a full roll out in "early 2019."

Wouldn't budge a millimeter on cross-play, now they've done the bare minimum by allowing a beta of it...but only for Fortnite and it may not ever be fully implemented across the PS4...and now THIS.

Keep going down this railroad line, Sony. I'm sure you won't lose PS5 sales to MS's 9th get console or anything if you do because nothing anybody does in life has consequences, right?...

I'm curious as to why you intentionally avoided their refusal until recently to support cross-play with XB1 and Switch players. I'm sure that would've sold them AT LEAST another 1M PS4's. Good to see they're allergic to money, though.

I'm not so sure a million players were waiting for PS4 to allow them play people on another console.

A couple of my friends have shitty PSN ID's because they were both too impatient to come up with a unique handle they actually liked and instead mashed random characters and numbers. Neither of them care about trophies and they both could have changed to a new account with a better name at any point with no real loss but they haven't, I guess because it really doesn't matter whatsoever what your name is.

It's a vocal minority that give a fuck about cross play, and a majority of that minority just like having something to be mad about.

"But I want to play Fortnite on my Switch and my XBONE and my PC too and now I'm going to have to unlock my arbitrary character customisation options all over again! Fuck Sony!"

Most people who play online with friends tend to all gravitate towards the same console in the first place. Outside of the Dark Souls family I don't really play online and I really could not care less if I can summon somebody cross platform.

1 million is way too generous of an estimate but Sony's poor handling of cross-platform play and PSN account stuff absolutely could have led to lingering negative effects going into the next Playstation console. Especially when you had Bethesda threatening to pull future multi-platform support for Sony consoles and Epic publicly blaming Sony for the Fortnite account controversy.

Main reason why PS4 has such a strong dominance over the Xbox One was due to the blunders Microsoft carried over from the Xbox 360 gen and the early blunders with the Xbox One. Combine that with Sony learning from their lessons with the PS3 and improving their rep, it turned what could have been a close XBox One vs PS4 race into a blowout win for Sony.

Like seriously I do not think cross platform play is a serious issue for general gamers. Not even close.
