The PC users have to choose??

So PC can cross-play with everybody.  PC Master Race.

Sony, after mocking MS for the use game sharing fiasco with an officially developed video, don't be like this.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Long run this could be bad for Sony if it becomes the norm with switch, xb1 and pc games.

Don't worry, if they happen to find themselves not in first place in the next gen i'm guessing they'll go back to trying to say "but we're #4theplayers!1!". Because it seems like they only wanna be "#4ThePlayers" until they start to develop a comfortable lead and no longer need try too hard acting like that anymore.

They are market leaders meaning most people playing are on PS4. If somebody wants to play with a friend they more often than not need a PS4 and not one of the competitors devices. If they allowed crossplay I could buy an Xbox instead and that's a lost sale to Sony.

In a general sense I guess. But on a game to game basis, I wonder if they'd really be concerned with losing PS4 sales to a game like Rocket League?

I'd like for them to allow this for some games at least.

Consistency is the key. At the very least there must be precise rules according to which which cross-platform multiplayer is allowed.

Weird, Sony can cross play with PC. Wonder why they're opposed to Switch and Xbox.
Hopefully this changes soon.

Because Sony have nothing to gain, if Microsoft was leading they would be the ones stopping cross-platform.

As the market leaders Sony have a sales advantage whereby people will buy a PlayStation just so they can play with their friends who also have a PlayStation (the majority). If there is cross-platform play Sony lose that advantage, and someone with friends who all own ps4 can still buy a different console.

It's not good for consumers, but no one should fool themselves into thinking Microsoft wouldn't be doing the exact same thing in their position. Last-Gen microsoft didn't even allow cross-platform with 360 > PC afaik, while PS3 had Portal 2 / FFXIV etc.

Anyone else a bit confused about what Sony and MS's policies on cross-play are? Sony seem to be totally fine with stuff like FF14, but not MC and RL (except sometimes PC?). MS seem totally fine with the latter two, but FF14 can burn in a fire.

Bleh.

Sony is fine with PS4 and PS4

Microsoft is open to corssplay between PC, Mobile, Xbox, Switch, and PS4 but Sony said no.

In the recent past, Microsoft turned down shared servers with Playstation/PC in regards to at least two different games that we know of.  That's why it's confusing.



Plain sucks at this point, I highly doubt them allowing this would hamper their sales in any way, you're just fracturing the player base.



Don't ruin the moment

MS is open to crossplay with everybody now as far as we know. Sony seems to not be open to crossplay with other consoles, just PC. FFXIV isn't on XB1 because Sony won't allow crossplay with XB1, and PC is already crossplay with PS4, so XB1 would have no crossplay which would make the playerbase too small on XB1, so Square isn't bothering. Hopefully Square decides to release FFXIV on XB1/Switch with crossplay for those 2. 

Yoshida (FF14's director) has previously said that FF14's absence from the X1 was down to MS, not Sony. Apparently there's something about MS's cross-play regulations (at least as of last year) that have made things difficult for SE, despite them actively trying to get the game on the platform.

MS having since changed their policy seems like a probable explanation for half, but it still leaves questions about why Sony didn't care with FF14. Maybe they've also changed their policy since then? I dunno.



Sony doesn't need to do it, they have a 60 million userbase, vs 33 millions (xbone and NS combined), so it would be stupid to give your opponents this advantage. And i don't care at all because there are a lot of players in rocket league or any other game for an fast online play on ps4. So yeah, you can scream as loud as you want to, nobody cares at all besides some hard-core fans from forums.
Also, why don't Microsoft make their games for ps4 ? I want to play Forza Horizon, bui i don't want to buy a xbone, i want to play it on my ps4, that's unfair, they are arrogant etc (this is sarcasm, btw)
