It’s Friday, and it’s time for the Weekly News Rundown, where I, Gaming Precision’s very own Nightingale Silva talks about some of the gaming news from the past week. As of late, news has been rather stagnant, as there hasn’t been anything too awesome to really touch base on. But today we’ll talk about a few things, such as PS4 details that were leaked by some dude on Reddit that states he works for Sony (wait till you see his name on Reddit…) and EA joins in on the subscription gaming fun.
Okay, so there’s a Reddit user by the name IWorkForSony, and he talks on Reddit about some details for the PS4 that is set to happen sometime this holiday season. The update will give the PS4 MP3 and video player support, something that has had people talking for a while, as to when would Sony’s
latest console become privvy to doing such things. The same user also said that we can expect DLNA media server support sometime next year.
He even touched base on Sony’s latest venture, PS Now, subscription-based streaming service. Someone asked about the fact that there was a slight rumor saying that owners of PS3 games would gain free access to the same titles they owned through PS Now. IWorkForSony replied: “Those rumors are wrong. Entitlements for PS3 games won’t carry over to PS Now. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t make business sense for Sony to transfer entitlements to PS Now. Streaming games costs them money.“
Also, a specific model for PS Now is still being worked on, as the beta is the testing ground for that.
Now, Sony has yet to come forward and confirm any of this, but according to Reddit, IWorkForSony has been verified by the subreddit moderators for r/PS4.
So…Electronic Arts, AKA EA, has decided to join the subscription gaming is a beta for a select few. Right now in the beta, beta testers can play and have unlimited access to Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, FIFA 14, and Battlefield 4.EA promises that there will be more games coming soon. As opposed to streaming the games, you will be able to download them onto your Xbox One, as this service is exclusive to Xbox One. So say your subscription runs out, once you get it back, you’ll be able to pick up where you left off. What do you think of this service? Yay or nay?
And with that it’s time for new games released this week!
