Today, a new PlayStation Blog entry was released alongside yet another exclusive Wired article that provides some additional details...

You are probably about to see more and more multiplayer focused multi-platform games add support for cross-play soon. Just today, we saw that PUBG added in cross-platform play between Xbox and PlayStation users. Even the recent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare test included some cross-play support.

    The $200 Power Armor Edition of Fallout 76 promised to include a "Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag" in addition to some other neat gear like a wearable Power Armor helmet, map, and more.

    Artifact is Out Now from Valve

    Valve has released a new game. I hope you were sitting down for that one because that sentence probably knocked you on your ass and tea bagged you.
