Xbox Live Coming to Nintendo Switch

Published

on

Microsoft announced it will integrate Xbox Live support for the Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android devices in a tease for the company’s Game Developers Conference next month. This will see Xbox Live achievements, friends, clubs, and game history integrate onto these platforms for the very first time as part of the company’s new cross-platforming initiative.

Microsoft’s description states: “Xbox Live is about to get MUCH bigger. Xbox Live is expanding from 400m gaming devices and a reach to over 68m active players to over 2bn devices with the release of our new cross-platform XDK.”

Certain Microsoft games like Minecraft allow users to sign into Xbox live on multiple platforms already, but this new tie-in will not be restricted to first-party titles, allowing achievements to be earned from any console on any game available on both systems.

Despite the new focus, Sony is expected to have a strong 2019 with a slew of heavy-hitting PS4 titles dropping during the first half of the year and some unannounced cross-gen games to come later.

More information on the PlayStation 5 is expected to come during the Game Developers Conference taking place in March. The console is slated to drop in 2021.

A 14-Year-Old First Discovered Apple’s FaceTime Bug While Playing ‘Fortnite’

Published

on

A major Apple security breach made headlines on Monday, as reports surfaced that iPhones and iPads can secretly play audio without an owner’s permission through FaceTime. Letting callers hear audio before a user actually answers the phone call is a huge problem, one that the company is scrambling to fix as the bad press spreads.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a 14-year-old first discovered the bug while playing the massively popular online game Fortnite.

Grant Thompson, a teenage Tuscon native, was setting up a FaceTime chat with some friends he wanted to play Fortnite with when he “stumbled” onto the major security flaw. Thompson apparently could hear audio from his friends before they answered the call, which he thought was a bit of a problem. Like any responsible teen, he told his mother about the issue.

The two then tried to tell Apple about the issue, though they were less than responsive about the problem. The WSJ noted the two sides “traded a few emails” but nothing was really done until the problem was noted and drew a ton of attention on Twitter. Apple has disabled the Group FaceTime feature and is working on a fix, but as more information comes out about the bug it seems like at least one gamer tried to give the tech giant a head’s up about the issue.
