If you're an Xbox owner who plans on double-dipping with Final Fantasy XV on PC then Square Enix has a nice surprise in store: you won't have to start over from scratch. The publisher confirms that saves between FFXV on Xbox One and the Windows Edition are compatible, but only if you buy the game from the Microsoft Store.

 

The game's online Comrades multiplayer mode will also support cross-play between the two systems to add in a nice little touch of cross-platform action. "The save data from the Windows 10 version of FINAL FANTASY XV WINDOWS EDITION is compatible with the Xbox One version of FINAL FANTASY XV. In addition, a post-launch update for FINAL FANTASY XV WINDOWS EDITION will enable Windows 10 and Xbox One cross play for FINAL FANTASY XV MULTIPLAYER EXPANSION: COMRADES," Square Enix wrote in a press release.

Hi-Rez Studios has decided that their pay-to-win update needs to go, Larson has come forward and spoke about the recent decision "We know this system has angered many of our most loyal fans and become a point of continuous contention in the Paladins community (and even inside of Hi-Rez). Your voice has been heard loud and clear. Our team will be working over the next major release cycle to remove Cards Unbound from the game."

 

According to IGN, the initial update for Cards Unbound was highly controversial within Hi-Rez Studios as the designers believed that the update was "pay-to-win." The inside source claims that this update was still pushed out to the live game from studio higher ups despite the concerns of other developers.

Tesla's electric Semi truck is FAST, tires start smoking

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Technology in Vehicles | Posted: 13 hours, 33 mins ago

Tesla blew the world away when they unveiled their super-powered electric Semi truck, and now a new video has surfaced showing the electric truck speeding down a street. Check it out:

 

 

YouTuber Richard Fielder saw the Tesla Semi burning up residential streets, where the electric Semi truck sped past the 25 mph speed limit sign so fastly that its tires started smoking.

 

Tesla even states on the Semi website that it can "provide maximum power and acceleration and require the lowest energy cost per mile". The electric Semi truck can reach 0-60 miles per hour in less than 20 seconds, even when it's fully loaded. This clip however, is damn impressive and makes me want to see The Rock or Vin Diesel driving the Tesla Semi truck in the new Fast and Furious movie.

Liao said that larger-than-65-inch 8K TVs will start gaining momentum this year, with 10% of TVs in 2020 being large 8K-capable TVs. Liao added that AUO will begin "volume production" of 8K TVs soon in order to cash in on this "emerging trend".

 

Liao added: "Demand for 4K TV panels will also remain strong in 2018 as the penetration of 4K TVs is expected to hike to over 40% in 2018, from 30% a year earlier, with 4K displays becoming a standard for 50-inch and larger TV products in the year".

Crytek's new Hunt: Showdown hits Steam Early Access

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 15 hours, 29 mins ago

Crytek has just pushed out Hunt: Showdown into Steam Early Access, with their latest PvE/PvP action/survival horror game costing $29.99.

 

 

Hunt: Showdown will be on Steam Early Access for around 12 months, where Crytek will listen to gamers' thoughts and then balance the game and its weapons, monsters, Hunters, game modes, traits, crafting, map variations, and more. There is already 4K 60FPS gameplay footage arriving, but I'm still deciding whether to pick this up - ah, stuff it. I just bought it.
