Sony caves – You’ll soon be able to play cross-platform Fortnite with all your friends

Sony is finally enabling cross-play for Fortnite today. Yup. Really. The PlayStation 4 manufacturer previously blocked cross-play and progression between PS4 and Nintendo Switch and Xbox One for massively popular battle royale game, Fortnite. People were angry — like real angry — because you couldn’t link a Epic Games account that’s previously been linked to a PS4, to a Nintendo Switch...[Read More]

Light Start – Vahana, more on Musk’s Mars trip, Switch deets, and Toyota’s magic bus

Here’s a little more detail on Airbus’ flying taxi project, Vahana Vahana? Isn’t that were vikings go as long as someone has hit them in the head with an axe before they die, or something? Er… no. The last time we heard from it, Vahana had very few details and was kinda considered a secret. But only kinda. More detail has emerged and so have some more detailed concept image...[Read More]
