Nuvendil's comment to which you were replying wasn't about cross-play though, but rather the shadier practices involving the account locking, so I'm not sure how your comment could have been interpreted any other way...


Indeed that's what this entire thread is about, nothing to do with cross-play.


I'll take your comment on board about the f-word but I do have to repeat my disbelief at some of the manic defensive maneuvering going on here.


Like your other comment about Nintendo's game pricing - it has absolutely no relevance! 


It's akin to someone posting on a thread about Nintendo's poor online showing, that it doesn't matter because Sony overcharged for PSP storage. It's purely diversionary. 

1) I brought that up has a point, about companies doing things that are not good for gamers, if enough people don't like it and it effects sony it will change, but if people don't care enough  like they do with nintedo games, then sony will keep its way of doing things just like it's been doing since it existed.

2) About the maniac defensive, I don't see your point, the majority  playstation owners/sony fans  don't care for cross play hardly any games support cross play on consoles, so why shouldn't they defend their favorite console that gives them what they want, when it has 0 effect on them. you have people paying full price for old games and happy to support there company even if there getting ripped off, so how does this surprise you?

1) I don't disagree with this, apart from the fact that we don't know how much Nintendo's pricing policy effects sales. It's true their games sell well under the current pricing model, though they could sell even better if they changed to a model more similar to Sony / Microsoft.

2) Again, this thread isn't about cross-play. And again, comparing game prices to the surreptitious locking of a 3rd party account is disingenuous. If I perceive a game to be too pricey I can choose not to buy it. If I've unwittingly locked my account to PS4 there's literally nothing I can do to retrieve it.  One is a straight up choice for the consumer to make, the other is a malicious, underhanded move to screw Nintendo & MS at the expense of gamers, including Sony's own.

And the idea that 'if it ain't happening to me then it doesn't count' is a bit self-centred & very short-sighted. I don't play Fortnite at all but I can still damn this behaviour which is blatantly anti-gamer. Same with SWBF2, I've never played it but I can see how problematic EA's strategy was with that game. Just because these particular slimy moves haven't impacted you on this occasion, doesn't mean that they won't in the future, especially if they remain unchecked by us, the gamers.

It's like saying that if the government starts locking homeless people in detention centres, that you can't or shouldn't have a view if you have a home...
