Another week has gone by in the blink of an eye and with all the gaming news hitting the press, it can be easy to miss some of it. Here are some things you might have missed this week:
Respawn released a balancing update for Apex Legends
Respawn Entertainment has released an update for Apex Legends which balances out a variety of things such as adding more energy ammo and weapons per game, slightly reducing the power of the Wingman pistol and Peacekeeper shotgun as well as reducing the number of survey beacons from 12 to 10 for Pathfinder to use. This is only the tip of the iceberg though, and you can check out the full notes of the fairly substantial patch by clicking on the link below.
Xbox Game Pass reportedly NOT coming to the Switch…for now
After rumors circulated around the internet that Game Pass would be coming to Nintendo Switch and could be announced as early as this year according to sources such as Game Informer, Brad Sams, Executive Editor of Petri.com and Thurrott.com, has now come out saying that he has been told by “multiple sources” that there are currently no plans to bring Game Pass to the Switch. While Game Pass hasn’t been ruled out of going to Switch eventually, it doesn’t seem like it will be happening anytime soon.

Playstation 4 games can now be played on iPhones
Two days ago Sony released their latest firmware, 6.50 which brought a slew of fixes and included the ability to allow players to play their PS4 games on their iPhones and iPads with some catches.
Though this feature has technically been around since the days of PS3, it was only available on select Android phones made by Sony themselves. While today it is available on any iPhone or iPad that supports iOS 12.1, there is no word on it coming to Androids at the moment. Other catches for this feature are that the iOS devices must be be connected to wifi and will not work on LTE. While it is possible to use the feature using a different wifi network than the PS4 is connected to, it is apparently much more difficult to make it work well, according to Samuel Axon at Ars Technica. Axon goes into further detail about this new feature in his article, which you can read by clicking on the link below.
