Like nintendo charging 60$ for ports that came out years ago at 50$, and taking advantage of their fan base? or keeping there games at 50-60$ even after a year or 2 after release, personally this effects me way more as a consumer then having cross play with xbox or switch which i don't care about. point is companies will do what they want, if you don't like it, then don't buy it.
There's a difference between stubborn pricing practices and actively and intentionally screwing over players to try and coerce them into purchasing and playing on your platform. One is certainly annoying but can be compensated for through used games and the like. The other is deliberately consumer hostile.
Also, bringing up something negative about another company doesn't negate the badness of another. So instead of derailing the thread with nonsense comparisons, either make an actual case for Sony or don't bother.
