Does the Loot Crate Invasion Need Regulation?

In this week’s collection of fun and hi-jinx from the gaming world, Antony and Darren discuss the games of the moment and the news and mood from across the bewildering bubble that is our games industry.

A blind eye could not be turned any longer as Antony and Dazza discuss the hot topic of the moment – the Loot Crate.

A Date With Destiny

This week on the Lost Spark Podcast the guys go hands on with the fantastic titles that have released over the last few weeks. Listen to full hands-on impressions of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battles, Life is Strange: Before the Storm and Destiny 2.

Listen in to James and Antony as they return to the world of Destiny and co-op their way through the fantastic new campaign and discuss best methods to get ‘Raid ready’

In the news section this week, as well as a bevy of Nintendo news there was briefly cross-platform play in Fortnite between users on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, over the weekend, Polygon reported and Epic Games confirmed today.

Gamers in the Fortnite subreddit spotted what they thought was cross-console play in the co-op sandbox survival game over the weekend. While others were skeptical that Xbox One users and PlayStation 4 users were in fact playing together (thinking someone had mistaken a PC gamertag for an Xbox Live handle), an Epic representative said this afternoon that that’s exactly what was happening.

“We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected,” the spokesperson said.

This is unusual because, while Microsoft opened the Xbox platform to cross-platform play last year beginning with Rocket League, Sony has been resistant to letting PlayStation 4 gamers share an ecosystem with Xbox One.
