Xbox Remote Play Now Available On Android Devices

Xbox Remote Play Now Available On Android Devices

Are you looking to stream your Xbox games on your mobile device? If you are, then you’ll be very happy to learn that Microsoft has finally made its remote play app available to all Android users. Prior to that, the app was only available to Insiders, but now it seems that the company is rolling it out to everyone.

However, we should point out that this app should not be mistaken for Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming service. Instead, this is more like Steam Link or Sony’s Remote Play where your games are hosted and processed on your Xbox console, but it is then streamed to your mobile device. This means that you only get to play games that you actually own.

Fujifilm X - S10 Could Be The Company's Next Mid - Range Camera

Fujifilm X-S10 Could Be The Company's Next Mid-Range Camera

According to a rumor from last month, it was suggested that Fujifilm could be working on a couple of new mid-range cameras. Now according to the folks at Fuji Rumors, they have heard that for at least one of the models that the company will be launching, it could be known as the Fujifilm X-S10.

What’s interesting about this is that Fujifilm has used the X-S designation in the past with the Fujifilm X-S1. Back then, the camera was billed as being Fujifilm’s high-end camera and it was released in 2011, but the company has since moved on where its X-T, X-Pro, and X-H series have since taken top billing as the company’s flagship lineup.

It Looks Like The Nintendo 3DS Has Been Discontinued

When the Nintendo Switch was first launched, many wondered about the fate of the 3DS handheld console from the company. After all, the Switch offered similar portability features, but could play more modern games. However, at that time the company stated that they would continue making 3DS consoles.

That might have changed though because according to a report from The Verge, it appears that the 3DS has since been discontinued. This is according to Nintendo Japan’s website which lists the New 3DS LL, New 2DS LL, and 2DS consoles as being “out of production”, with a message on the main page saying that the series has since ended its production run.

Ps5 Won't Have Backwards Compatibility With Ps3 Or Older

PS5 Won't Have Backwards Compatibility With PS3 Or Older

So what about the Sony PS5? Unfortunately for gamers, it seems that Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan has confirmed in an interview with Famitsu (translated by Siliconera) that the company’s latest console will not be compatible with games designed for the PS3 or older.

According to Ryan, “We keep in mind the engineering specialized for the PS5, as we produced the device. In the midst of that, the PS4 already has 100 million players; we thought they ought to want to play PS4 titles on the PS5 as well indeed, so we included compatibility with the PS4. While implementing that, we also focused our efforts on taking in the high-speed SSD and the new controller DualSense at the same time. So, unfortunately, we couldn’t reach the implementation of such compatibilities.”

Sony Teases New God Of War Title For PS5

The last time Sony released a new God of War title for the PlayStation platform was back in 2018.

Instead, in this particular release, we saw Kratos share the spotlight with his son.

For those who love the God of War franchise and would like to see a new title, you might be in luck because towards the end of Sony’s PS5 event, a logo appeared on the screen that teased the next God of War title that would be coming to the PS5 in 2021.
