The announcement that cross play was coming to PS4 sent shockwaves across the industry. However, Rocket League PS4 cross play isn't planned yet.
Didnt they say all that was needed was "With the flip of a switch".🤔
They also mention that people should reach out to Sony about it. From what it sounds like, for right now this is a Fortnite only thing and Psyonix don't have the ability to do it right now.
Or Sony has some sort of restriction or fee for the developers who want it, and no one is talking about it yet.
@Majin-vegeta It's Sony's decision. This crossplay is just for Fortnite. Sony said it themselves. Didn't you read the blog Sony released before jumping into this?
Wow, you don't say.
Expect games like this and maybe Call of Duty or Battlefield to be the next cross-play games, or at least that's the hope.
Hope y'all are happy with crossplay now. Pretty sure it was just a way to give Sony a headache about something really irrelevant. Pretty sure this whole thing is gonna cause issues in the future. Shoulda left it alone.
First Bethesda come out and say they won't be doing crossplay after making an issue of it, then pysonix with rocket league. After all the horse s### flinging around, this is how it all ends LMAO. I said that in 1 years time it would be a mute point among gamers. Roll on the next big "make believe" issue for gamers to argue about.
Reading will help you They do not want to redo the infrastructure, blame Sony for taking too long to give them the okay, if Sony want to make it cross play have their developers do it, Bethesda should not have to pay resource to fix something that Sony cause issues with in the first place
Sony is not allowing all games to be cross play just Fortnite right now...
so lets get this straight... didn't they say alll it took was to flip a switch and how eaaassyyyyy cross platform play was and the ONLY thing stopping it was Sony's stance on cross platform and now here we are are now they're backtracking loooool... this is what i mean when i say this 'feature' isn't even a big deal and these developers are getting shown up! loool
They said ask Sony learn to read, it seems only fortnite can make Sony change their stance for now....rocket league need to send some threats to make it work for them
It's not the developers! Read the Playstation blog again. This crossplay is just for Fortnite. That's Sony's decision as of right now. Again, not the developers. Stop going into these things just to see the title of the articles. Go check out the content inside from now on, then you'll be well informed.
@Gemmol & @BlackRaven85_1... i did read the article... but you both seem either unaware or too dumb to google things for yourself... But heres an article here on N4G for your to check out.. http://n4g.com/news/2206681... LITERALLY another developer that wants crossplay in their game so reached out and now its happening... once again! If it's so easssyyy to enable cross play but have NOOOO plans in the near future for cross play then that's NOT Sony... that's Psyonix! Glad i could educate you seems you like throwing around accusations like "read the article".. then you should learn to Google! ¬___¬
First Bugthesda and now Psyonix too? I thought this is such a huge feature requested by "GAMERS". Why are you guys backing out now instead of jumping in like you said you would but Sony didn't let you back then? Now it's "Not planned"? So why the fvck were you guys telling us Sony didn't cooperate back then?
My guess is Sony has some hoops the developer has to jump through before it can be activated. Possibly a fee or development time to meet Sony requirements. Maybe that's part of what the 6.0 update was about and why they're having a Beta test with Fortnight.
Or, it could come down to micro transactions and dlc and who gets a piece of it. Developers might end up having to manage their own content on their own servers because Sony has no need to host a game's content if they're not going to make money off of it. If a gamer can buy content somewhere else and still use it on PS4, why should Sony spend money hosting their content? Can of worms has just been opened. Host your own content through in game transactions or pay a higher fee.
Sony said in the blog this is only going to be Fortnite first.
needs to happen
