Two things here:

Has the cross platform feature for consoles been enabled on Rocket League now? Posts on this forum indicate that scott is on PS4.

If the game stayAwhile is talking about is Ark: Survival Evolved then it isn't free, or is there some sort of deal for new Gold subscribers?

Colour me confused.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

They're making a free-to-play version of Ark, but it's primarily for Asian markets. I suspect it'll be bombed into the stone age with microtransactions, given the way such things usually tend to work.

If you really cannot decide, you could also try both the controllers out and see which one you like better. The PS4 controller really impressed me and was part of the reason I went down the PS4 route. Just a thought.

Ok. Well, Evolved isn't free either. It was free last month but the offer has expired.

The current Games With Gold freebies are Walking Dead Season 2, Ryse: Son Of Rome and the 360 game Assassin's Creed Revelations.

I own a ps4 and love it, it has by far the best exclusives. Its also the best Vr system for the price point of entry (its not the best, by price wise nothing else comes close).

We have an xbone where I work and without being bias, its by far the worst designed and clunky pos we have. People at the bar would rather play the ps2, x360 and n64 b4 they go near it. And even when people do play it, they play gears of war then get bored (rare replay is great tho).

To answer original question. XB1 and Pc do cross play and PC and PS4 do it too. But not between XB1 and Ps4.

Yeah, I find it hard to believe.

So everyone is completely ignoring new machine and going straight to the N64. I mean how do they know they don't like it if they refuse to go near it, Is it giving off bad vibes, is it possessed or something.

Sorry but calling complete and utter bullshit on this, especially as any story beginning with " I am not biased " means the storyteller already knows he I, and is about to say something heavily biased and trying to make excuses before he says it. Normally followed by something so biased it can only possibly be made up.

Maybe but he said they go to every other console BEFORE they even go near it. So how do they know.
