Microsoft’s seemingly becoming more platform agnostic, with its software and services now exploring devices outside of the Xbox ecosystem. The thought of Halo coming to the PlayStation 4 is not as wild as it once was, then – although it does, at first blush, still seem pretty crazy. Speaking on a recent episode of the Sacred Symbols podcast, however, ex-IGN editor Colin Moriarty reckons that a port of the Master Chief Collection was, at one point, being considered for Sony’s system.
“I have it on good authority that Master Chief Collection was being talked about on PS4 years ago,” he said in a recent episode, which you can listen to through here. “Like, I have that on great authority.”
E3 2019 has completely destroyed us it seems, as this is going to go down as the shortest WAYP in history. That doesn’t matter, though, because this feature is ultimately all about you. Make sure you drop a comment in the space below.

I’m taking a little break from games after E3 2019, as I attempt to earn some real-life XP by exploring the outdoors.
There aren’t many games with artwork so good you’ll want to frame it, but Cyberpunk 2077 is right up there. CD Projekt RED has released a stunning new sketch, while various other prints have materialised online. We’re hoping that these are going to be released as wallpapers soon, because they’re absolutely spectacular. But let’s start with the direct-feed shot:
And now for the other images, which were on display at the Polish developer’s E3 2019 booth, and come courtesy of Game Front:
Made up of 13 songs, The Music of Red Dead Redemption 2 packages together instant classics such as Unshaken, That's the Way It Is, and Cruel World - with Crash of Worlds and Table Top available for download right now if you place a pre-order. Coming in at a price of just £8.99, it's a bit of a bargain for some of gaming's greatest musical pieces. A physical version of the album is expected to arrive later this summer.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is a solid package on PlayStation 4, but it's difficult to deny just how dated the moment to moment gunplay feels. There's a distinct lack of impact to most of the weapons, and the visual feedback is pretty poor by today's standards, even if damage numbers are flying all over the screen. What we're trying to say is that it's some distance away from more recent shooters like Destiny 2.
Here we go again! Just before E3 2019 started, we published our fifth annual Push Square E3 Community Quiz, in which we asked you 20 yes or no questions about the show. Would we get Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay? Would Final Fantasy VII Remake get a 2019 release date? It was your job to try and predict the events of E3 2019.
Insomniac Games confronted that particular saga head-on with its own unique brand of humour, adding a puddle sticker to the superhero smash’s photo mode – but it’s not the first example of gamers crying foul at “downgraded” products. I must admit, I can’t help but ponder whether developers have decided to eschew this issue at E3 by, well, not showing anything at all.
Remember when Bethesda said that the Fallout 76 collector's edition would come with a canvas bag, and then it didn't? After the collector's edition shipped with a visibly cheap nylon bag, people were understandably angry, and it only added fuel to the dumpster fire that was Fallout 76 at the time. What's more, customers who got in touch with Bethesda were told that the canvas bags ended up being too expensive to make, and that the company wasn't planning on doing anything about it. In short, the whole thing was a disaster.
