GamingThread Dev on Sony’s Crossplay Stance: ‘Families Want to Play Together and Nobody Owns Four PlayStations’
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Backseat modding, consistent history of system warring, and numerous accumulated infractions
This Cross Play begging is tiresome. I wish it was a ban-able offense here like port begging. Whats obvious is that consumers want it. Why wouldn't they? But whats not so obvious is that like exclusive games, a walled platform is in selling hardware especially if you are the leading box console. We all can hate on it, but whoever has the lead has always done it, since the beginning of online games. Microsoft isn't a righteous pro-consumer advocate. They haven't changed. They just don't have the lead so that strategy doesn't work in their favor. They want you to buy an Xbox and still have your friends to play with, which most of them are probably on PS4. I wish Sony would fully open the cross play gates, but I also understand they are a business and that it would be bad for business for them right now.
