According to a reliable industry insider, PlayStation 5 exclusive titles will allegedly be missing a prominent feature, forcing gamers that want to play them to upgrade to the next-gen console. 

Next-gen fever is in the air, after Sony and Microsoft both announced that their follow up consoles to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will be releasing in 2020.

As anticipation builds to the inevitable blow out announcement from both publishers, players are on the edge of their seats waiting for any new information to drop about latest gaming systems.

However Kotaku’s Jason Schreier recently opened up on the ‘Splitscreen‘ podcast, and alleged that cross-gen for PS5 launch exclusives might come to an end.

PS5 exclusives won’t have a PS4 version?

During the gaming podcast, the industry veteran was discussing whether the next-gen consoles would be having cross-gen releases at launch – which is when a title releases for both the old and new console at the same time.

While the Kotaku writer said that third-party titles such as Assassin’s Creed’s will definitely have a PS4 and PS5 release, he revealed that he had heard that some of the PS5 titles would not get a dual release.

“I’ve heard some of the PS5 launch titles will be PS5 only,” he said during the podcast discussion. Although he wouldn’t list any of the game titles that will lack this feature, as he plans to write a future article on it.

The industry veteran also explained how Microsoft seemed to be going for a different approach by moving away from exclusives, and having their games on as many platforms as possible.

He pointed out that the publisher already announced that launch title Halo Infinite would be available on Xbox One as well, meaning that the American company plans on having cross-gen titles.

Interestingly this whole discussion stemmed from the revived rumors that Microsoft plans on having two consoles at launch: a full-powered one, and an under-powered version that is digital only and more affordable called ‘Lockhart.’

Sony / PlayStationPlayStation players might not be getting cross-gen games going forward.

It remains to be seen whether any of this will shake out, but Sony has focused heavily on exclusives in the PlayStation 4 era, and it would certainly encourage players to upgrade to the new console to play the latest exclusive games.

On the plus side, if some PlayStation 5 titles are not cross-gen, this means development won’t have to also spend time making it work on the weaker console and could focus fully on the next-gen tech, so it wouldn’t be all doom and gloom for players.

Lily ‘LilyPichu’ Ki took on Kristoferyee ‘Kristoferyee’ Yee in a rap battle on OfflineTV’s RP server and it’s fair to say both contestants didn’t hold back.

The hype and excitement surrounding Rust continues to rise as even more streamers have joined in on the action across both of OfflineTV’s servers.

Since Abe ‘Baboabe’ Chung’s decision to split the original OfflineTV server into two, both PvP and RP players have had dedicated servers to enjoy. With ‘The Badlands’ PvP server descending into constant raids and killing, players on ‘The Divide’ RP server have been finding other ways to battle each other without the use of weapons.

One such encounter involved huge online personality LilyPichu taking on fellow Twitch streamer Kristoferyee in a rap battle in front of a crowd of onlookers.

LilyPichu vs Kristoferyee in savage rap battle

It’s not every day you get to see two Twitch personalities take part in a heated rap battle on a custom-made stage. Well, that’s exactly the kind of content you should expect while watching OfflineTV’s RP server.

LilyPichu took on Kristoferyee at the rap dome on January 14 in front of the likes of Corpse, JackSepticEye, and Ludwig.

Both participants had a set of great bars and lines throughout, with Lily taking the more savage approach: “It’s hard to think of roasts, I don’t really have much planned, when Kristofer himself as a person is so bland.”

Despite Kristofer’s slow start, he came back strong with a hard-hitting set of bars later on in the battle: “Look I don’t mean to be a snitch, but word on the server is that you’re an evil b***h, I’m loyal to H12, you only commit treason, what kind of person hates cats for no reason.”

It looked like Lily was on the ropes at that point, but she refused to go down without a fight and arguably won the battle with her final verse: “My dog has more charisma, more talent, and he’s cute, not to mention on Twitter and Instagram he has more followers to boot.”

Finishing with a jab about clout and followers was just enough to secure Lily the victory over Kristofer. It’s fair to say she definitely took the more ruthless approach and it certainly paid off in the end.

Fingers crossed this isn’t the last rap battle we’ll see on the OfflineTV Rust server, it’d be great to get Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel in the rap dome to see how he’d perform.
