Not sure why Sony got such a big issue with crossplay with it's competitors. Nintendo is on board and they're usually late to the party

Because it taps into their resources (user base) and bolsters their competitors. In fact, Sony lightened up on the restrictions from the start of the gen. People are just incredibly entitled

Idk what is sadder, that this is coming from the #4theplayers company, or that there are actually people so strongly attached to a company making their favorite toy that they’d defend it. Just look at this turd of a post:

Interesting to say that, because this is the kind of move that actually pushes me to support the rivals more. This makes me more inclined to go play this game on Xbox or Nintendo instead, and makes me way less enthusiastic to get the microtransactions on their store too.

Ps4 is dominating the market because it has the best games. If you want to play its lesser rivals over cross play then be my guest. 

 

You could pick reasons not to support their rivals if you wanted too. 

 

Nintendo: far weaker graphics and performance for games in general, much smaller library and far weaker online offering. 

 

Microsoft: extremely weak first party offering. Much smaller player base. 

 

Sony will continue to dominate sales whether this cross play thing turns off a few players or not. If anything they gain more then they lose because a lot of people will buy the ps4 to play with their friends.

 

Latest weekly sales on vgchartz

Ps4 225k

Xbox 75k

 

If anything the gap will only get bigger. 


   

 

I mean, what does literally any of that have to do with what the guy said? This post can be reduced to “Sony #1” and it would have the same amount of substance. I’m envisioning pom poms when I read that post. Sad.

Has this been posted? Saw it on Resetera, thought it was funny.

I’m on my phone, hope it formats ok. If not,

I mean, complaining about this is the equivalent of buying a xbox-one game and complaining the PS4 does not play the game even though you have the PS4 disc as well

PC has a bigger userbase and they're just fine. Entitled to have the same thing as the other platforms, sure.

How the hell is this even comparable? Can you elaborate?

I mean, it's the exact same scenario. How much more simple do I need to make it?

Well if MS or Nin is so gamer friendly, they shouldn't care if people are spending their Fortnite money through PS and playing that game on XB and Nin platforms. XB is making money off online services and Nin will be soon enough. The reason they wouldn't be ok with that, is because they want a piece of the pie, and the bigger the piece the better. This would explain why PS might do what they might have done contractually, to make sure they end up with the biggest piece of pie. If MS or Nin didn't want to agree with that, then Epic or PS has every right not to agree as well.

The same would apply if you initially linked your account to XB1 or Switch. You would spend all your money on that platform for the game, then play with those purchased items on other platforms with a secondary account. If Epic themselves didn't want that due to potentially less micro-transaction sales, then its solely Epic's greedy fault. If PS said to Epic, everything tied to PS4 for Fortnite stays strictly linked to only PS4, then Epic once again had a choice to make. Tell anti consumer PS to take a hike and join MS and Nin in their anything goes marketing, or agree to PS demands and reap the benefits of their massive PS4 user base.

One way or another, it comes down to Epic and the decisions they made for Fortnite. They weren't forced to play by the PS brands rules, if those rules actually exist.

Its quite amazing how you have managed to spin this in a way that Sony can do no wrong and has never done nothing wrong in this situation. Bravo!

I never said PS can do no wrong. I only said in this situation, its Epic who is the deciding factor at the core. Whether or not PS tried to use leverage to get Epic to do what they wanted is besides the point. If we're going to go outside of the core in terms of who does anti consumer things, we can talk about that for days pointing fingers at every console company. Just look at MS using what leverage they have to try and make PS look bad on social media. Its just business and marketing tactics.

It also depends on your anti consumer viewpoint and perspective. For all we know, PS is taking that Fortnite money and more, and pouring it into PS first party exclusives. The fact that those exclusives have been such high quality is no doubt partially due to the money invested into them. Is that anti consumer? Trying to give your customers the very best gaming experience when you play their games? 

PS doesn't exist to make everybody's gaming experience better, they exist to make their own customers experience better. Why do you think MS created the XB brand? What about XB Game Pass? Why would they do that in the first place, and also not open it up to PS or Nin gamers?



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Just so you know, you're treading a very fine line here. I'd recommend you not make a habit out of trying to bait people into a strong negative reaction. It doesn't go unnoticed.

A better example would be : I subscribed to WoW on my PC, but one day I used my friend’s Mac to log on my account, since then I’m unable to play on any PC because my account is locked to an Apple device.

Except nothing like that at all. Ya know, since PC =/= consoles and consoles have never been linked like this
