That's been the story since the start of the gen. Nothing new.

Came to say this basically. Weren't they pretty easy to work in the PS3 days too? I thought the Pub Fund they had set up garnered a fair amount of good will, and can't remember anything negative being said about them.

(Cough).......cross play....... (cough).

The thing is Rocket League like 80%+ of its users are on PS4, also they can play with PC users.

It doesnt effect PS4 users any that they dont have it with Xbox.

Minecraft? well its one game... who cares?

 

Also cross play =//= ease to work with.

They are 2 differnt things.

You don't say.



Can't say I've ever heard of this developer, and yet developers that I do know of have praised Microsoft's ID@Xbox program, so...

Earlier this gen I would have said PS4 was easily the best console for indies, but now, the better platform is much less clear.

Although I could act on this (along with your subsequent replies), I'll level with you. Why did you need to post this?

How is Sony blocking a major feature of a game which is supported by three other major gaming platforms (Switch, Xbox and PC) good for indie developers? VGC bans people who post facts now? Wow.

Because cross play is extremely important for indie developers?

Rocket League.

Oh sorry, I didnt know you were basing the fact that the developers of Rocket League represented the mindset of every developer.

I'm certain every indie dev is more  focused and excited that their game gets to be on a system.  And then if it suceeds then they can think about adding on cross play.  But cross play isn't important enough to be wanted it implimtent from the start.  The ony reason the devs of RL want cross play now is because it's becoming big.  If RL bombed then I doubt they'd care about adding cross play.

How does said fact tie into the topic? Is it relevant to the OP at all? The particular Indie dev we're talking about in here doesn't mention cross-play, so how's it relevant? If I'm missing something, educate me.

Psyonix is a indie developer. Fact.

That's fine, but I'm still not understanding how that + crossplay tie into the subject matter, here. The latter is your theme. How does it work with what this developer said?
