Sony shouldn't agree to any cross platform play for PlayStation to Xbox. Microsoft didn't want to do it last gen so I don't know why Sony would want to do it now when it only benefits Microsoft. If people want to plasy with PlayStation gamers then they should buy a PlayStation

Exactly. There is absolutely nothing in it for Sony so why help their competitors for nought in return?

PrimeVinister277d ago

It's not a dig at Sony by the way.

Exactly. Why open up to the windows client of which is the only way Microsoft wants it done? I love how almost every article leaves that bit of information out.

So the nintendo switch would be fine right?
why can't we play with switch players in rocket league? Not like nintendo actually refused crossplay before, they didn't have an online platform in the first place!
At this point, I don't give a damn hell on which platform you choose to play. I had great gaming PCs alongside my consoles for years and I would love to get a bigger online community and be able to play with all of my friends.
What's the bad side of crossplay? Can someone please list the bad things about crossplay with switch/PS4?

Children safety is bullshit at this point, since you can play fortnite with PC including voice chat. where's the safety in that? only quick chat option would still be awesome.

PlayStation has been doing Crossplay ever since Xbox was conceived.
