GamingThread Dev on Sony’s Crossplay Stance: ‘Families Want to Play Together and Nobody Owns Four PlayStations’
Reason User banned (1 week): platform wars and spreading baseless conspiracy
All right, let's go off topic, I guess. The problem with crossplay is also the problem with how consoles are designed now, as well as the problem with how games are developed now: homogenization. These elements, and elements like them, all conspire and combine to create a homogenous situation where there is only one platform and only one truth and dissenters don't exist. This is not a conspiracy theory. It's something that people have been joking about for a while with their "why even have multiple consoles" comments, which... stopped being jokes very fast. Steam usually comes into the picture, for obvious reasons. If not handled carefully, this is regressive rather than progressive. I don't think I need to explain the idea of competition here. By the way, this has nothing to do with Sony's (supposed) stance on crossplay, absolutely nothing. That is an entirely separate topic. If you do want a conspiracy theory though, we're at the point where a dev could totally get away with lying about some part of this. I'm not a detective and so I can't afford to care about things like that too much, but I don't wanna hear people take devs at their absolute word when these devs are businesses too. If you look at the actual supported list of games, there's no way Sony could be locking much of anything down: there's no pattern to what games are supported on what platforms. You keep saying I'm defending Sony, and that this "speaks volumes". If I'm not defending Sony, it doesn't say a word. . Again, what I said above about crossplay has to do with what Sony's doing.
