How to play the latest Xbox, Playstation and PS4 games on a PS4 console
Microsoft and Sony have been at odds over how games are distributed for years.
The Xbox 360 launched in 2010 with a slew of exclusives that included the critically acclaimed Dead Rising, which debuted on November 10, 2012.
Microsoft took a hard line on exclusives, but it did release a number of exclusive games for the Xbox One, including the Halo 5: Guardians and Batman: Arkham Knight, which had the game’s biggest hit, the Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, coming out on the console on November 25.
Sony also had its share of exclusions, including Resident Evil 7, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, The Last of Us, the Call of Duty franchise and the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
All three of those games had big, huge audiences.
The PS4 has been more lenient with exclusives.
The company released the Uncharted 4 game on November 5 and the PS4 exclusive Grand Theft Auto V came out on October 31.
The games on the Xbox 360 are all still coming out this week.
Microsoft and the PlayStation 4 are also working on a new console that will compete with the Wii U and Nintendo Switch.
It’s being called Project Scorpio and it will have a price tag of $499.
That’s $200 less than the Xbox 720 and Xbox One S, which will go on sale in March.
We spoke with Sony about how it plans to distribute its games on PlayStation 4.
Sony has released a number with games for Xbox One and Xbox 360 that will be available for download on PlayStation platforms, but the PS3 and PS2 games are still being exclusive.
Sony said in its press release that it will “continue to support PlayStation platforms through a variety of avenues including retail distribution and digital distribution through digital storefronts.”
So far, Sony hasn’t announced any of those avenues.
We also asked Sony about whether it will be releasing games on PS4 as well, but Sony has yet to confirm that.
Here’s what Sony had to say: PlayStation 4 titles will continue to be available on PlayStation consoles through a range of avenues, including retail and digital outlets, via our online retail service, and through our digital storefront platforms.
We will continue with our current plans to introduce additional PS4 titles at the launch of PS4.
We are currently developing additional content for PlayStation platforms for PlayStation 4 as well as a range at PlayStation.
We have no new information on titles to be announced.
