I only own an Xbox at the moment but like to keep an eye on what's going on with Sony. This game has me excited and seems that I should aim to buy a PS4 before 2016!

If you're going to get a playstation just to play No Man's Sky why not get the PC version when it's released (unless you don't have a PC either)?? That's my plan. I've heard in the past it was supposed to be a timed exclusive for PS4, but now I've seen it stated the release date will be the same.

Same here, PC version for me. But to be frank, it's still not clear to me whether or not this game will end up being boring after a few hours.

Pretty much it :p Both my personal and work laptop aren't exactly top spec. I've been contemplating for a while now and the release of this game convinces me.

Guess that answers that! :) Though I honestly hope the system requirements aren't too high, as my PC isn't exactly a monster machine either...

An excellent point. The concept and execution of the game sound really cool, but it'll be very interesting to find out what playing it actually ends up being like.

I have no doubt that some people will find this game boring.  There isn't a strong narrative in the game so if you need a compelling story to have fun in a game it's probably not for you.  On the other hand if you enjoy running around in Minecraft or playing around in the GTA/Fallout/Elder Scrolls world besides running the story missions then there's a good chance you'll like this game.  I know I personally love open world games and I'm really looking forward to this one but I also know that many people don't like to be just given a world/galaxy to play with and told to do their own thing.  Not every game is going to please everyone.

Explore, fight, trade.  There isn't a specific way to play the game.  Some crazy people might just spend their entire time playing it exploring their starting planet (unlikely, but possible).  In theory you're supposed to work your way to the center of the galaxy but that goal is along the same lines as in theory you're supposed to try to get to the end and defeat the dragon in Minecraft... many will play the game and never even try to get to the center of the galaxy.

Exploration is the main focus as you'll be discovering planets, flora, and fauna that no other person has ever seen before (not even the developers).  In order to explore farther you have to earn credits to upgrade your ship and gear though.  Your ship has a limited jump range at the start, your suit limits what environments you can survive on outside the ship, your weapon limits your mining, combat ability.  You can earn credits by harvesting resources, trading, fighting, logging new creatures, places. etc.  Again there is no specific way to play.  You can play as a pacifist explorer, you could be a pirate, you could be a merchant, etc. etc.

The dev, being an indie, wanted to focus on getting it out for the PS4 and PC for now. Microsoft has stated that if the dev gets it running for Xbox One they would love to have it on their platform too (not just on their Windows platform). Now there is question (rumor) that it will make it on the PS4.

I guess I have a reason to keep my ps4 then. Hopefully the slot loading drive on this replacement lasts longer than 2 months like the first ps4 I got

“As we approached our final deadlines, we realized that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards,” director Sean Murray wrote on the PlayStation Blog this evening. “I have had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special.”

Seeing some of the reactions to the rumour earlier, I think I'll keep my distance from this game until it comes out...

Seriously, death threats for reporting a game being delayed? Those twisted ######ers need to be sorted out.

      Here's why FIFA 21 on PC will be inferior to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S
      by Usama Jawad

      FIFA 21 launched on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC early last month and is scheduled to land on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on December 4. The launch will come as a free update to owners of the game on latest consoles and will pack several new features not available on previous consoles and PC. Now, the publisher has revealed why "next-gen" features won't be making their way to PC platforms.

      FIFA 21 on the latest game consoles includes features such as ball compression, a new camera angle, and muscle deformation. However, none of these will be making their way to the PC because EA wants to lower the barrier of entry in terms of specifications. In an interview with Eurogamer, Executive Producer Aaron McHardy had the following to say:

      Looking at the statement, one has to wonder why EA couldn't figure out some workaround to keep the gen five features as optional on PC so people with powerful rigs could utilize them while gamers on lower-end PCs can simply switch them off for increased performance.

      Given that the minimum requirements of the PC version are quite modest - requiring an Nvidia GTX 660 (2GB VRAM) or AMD Radeon HD 7850 (2GB VRAM), 8GB of RAM, and Intel Core i3-6100 or AMD Athlon X4 880K CPU - it definitely makes sense to not have "next-gen" capabilities on these machines. But ideally, there should have been an option to enable this for gamers on high-end machines.

      Fortnite receives in-game video chat thanks to Houseparty
      by Usman Khan Lodhi

      Epic Games announced today that it is integrating Fortnite with Houseparty, letting players see their friends while they play the game together. Users will be required to install the Houseparty app on an iOS or Android device and connect their Houseparty account to their Epic Games account. Those doing so will receive the Rainbow Fog Wrap as a reward.

      Initially, the feature will only be available to PC, PS4, and PS5 gamers. Using their phones, players will be able to connect to Houseparty, and the video chat will be shown in-game. Epic has detailed the process of bringing video chat into Fortnite:

      The video chat will only display player faces and replace the background with a Fortnite-themed image. Epic has emphasized that the service is restricted to people aged 13 or more. In the parental settings menu, there is an option to turn off the feature. Epic didn't say whether the feature will be made available to other games.

      Psychological horror title The Medium delayed to next year
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      Earlier this year, video game developer and publisher Bloober Team revealed The Medium during the May edition of Inside Xbox. Back when it was officially unveiled, it was also announced that the psychological horror title will feature the famed Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka.

      Today the Polish video game-maker announced that its upcoming horror game has been delayed. The previously appointed launch window of Holiday 2020 has been pushed back to next year.

      The reasons for the delay were stated to be difficulties caused by the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic and apparent clashing with other game releases around the same holiday 2020 period, perhaps referring to Cyberpunk 2077's new release date. Bloober Team also stated that it will take the extra time to improve the game and ensure a more polished end product.

      The Medium is scheduled to arrive on the Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam and the Epic Store. It will also be a day one arrival to Xbox Game Pass. The newly announced release date for the psychological horror title is January 28, 2021.

      You can earn these Destiny 2: Trials of Osiris rewards from November 6 to 10
      by Asher Madan



      Every week, Destiny 2 hosts a Trials of Osiris event where teams of three compete for access to The Lighthouse. The Lighthouse promises Pinnacle rewards that boost you closer to the current Power Level cap.

      The player vs. player competition also grants other items if you get three, five, or seven wins. However, you'll have to get seven wins in a row, without a loss, if you want to grab the Pinnacle gear from The Lighthouse. You can take a look at the Trials of Osiris rewards from November 6 to 10 below.

      Three wins: Mark of the Exile legendary armor Five wins: The Summoner legendary auto rifle Seven wins: Gloves of the Exile legendary armor Flawless: Chest of the Exile legendary armor Trials of Osiris starts at 1 PM EDT on Friday and lasts until 1 PM EDT on Tuesday. You can use the Passage of Mercy from Saint-14 because it forgives one loss if you're aiming for Flawless. If you manage to get seven wins in a row, you'll have to manually select The Lighthouse location displayed in the Crucible menu to obtain the Pinnacle reward. This involves jumping across a few platforms and opening the chest where Saint-14 and Osiris are standing.
