Forums - Gaming Discussion - How stupid is it that MS doesnt allow cross platform play with Steam on PC with games such as Ark?

Pretty sure that was the point he was making, somewhat sarcastically.

That's fine.  There are many who feels the same as you.  I'm not one of them.

People are not angry that Sony blocks crossplay, they're angry that if they login their account on PS4 they can never use it again on other platforms without any kind of warning.

Right.  It is 1) a dick move by Sony, regardless of notice; and, 2) a possibly illegal move to do it without notice.  

It is also a dick move by Epic to allow it to happen.  At the end of the day, they signed the contract that says Sony can do this.

Apparently there's also millions upon millions who own both PS4's and Switch's but for some reason there is no Mario on PS consoles. This is so anti consumer...

All gaming brands should be forced to assemble into one giant brand, run by the gamers, so everyone can have everything all the time, until that company goes bankrupt shortly afterwards and everyone ends up with nothing instead.

that idea with no disrespect. is beyond retarded

 

nobody would make money. the revenue will spread thin and big budget games will die

Same reason as Sony. K&M advantages as well as them being competition and possibilites of security risks and the obligation to keep the service gamers are paying for stable, safe and on an even keel. It's not stupid at all but what is stupid is MS subtley calling sony out for it, a dick move that I hope backfires on them.
As a console owner I buy into a closed system, its one of the many reasons I choose console over PC these days, no hassle, no hackers, no unfair advantages all tied by the same EULA as do many other gamers.
If you want to play on a certain platform then buy that platform.

Simple.

Lots of cheaters on console at the moment, especially in games like Overwatch where gamers are using devices that allow you to use a keyboard and mouse to gain an advantage on console.

Don't forget the endless gigabytes worth of OS and Game updates, buggy game releases, Xbox Live/Playstation Network going down for maintenance/repairs... And suddenly consoles are longer a platform of convenience like they used to where you could drop a game in and instantly play.

Never mind, not going to derail into a pissing contest.

LOL, spot-on, I guess someone reported you because butt truth hurts.    

Hmmm... your ignorance is showing. There are already games that support crossplay between Steam and Windows Store.

Here's the thing, when CoD:IW lacked cross play the blame was put on Activision. When Halo Wars lacked cross play we could only blame MS.

Meanwhile, there seem to be numerous games that do support crossplay between Steam and Windows Store fine. Like Gwent, Killer Instinct and Rocket League. So it really depends on the developer to implement that feature.

There doesn't seem to be a Microsoft policy which doesn't allow cross play with Steam but people still use the butthurt argument against MS and their fans?

I would recommend some Smarties if they wouldn't be from Nestle. 



Crossplay was the fake outrage this week. The real issue is cross-progression, thats what Sony is getting haggled over.
If we took all 3 consoles and lined them up and look at who does crossplay better, Sony would win by far simply because they allow it for ios, android, and pc, and i cant blame them if they dont want to aid their DIRECT competitors, the xbox and switch. No reason for Sony to help the users on those platforms enjoy games on those platforms more.

Uhmmm... no. Crossplay has been discussed numerous times this gen and Sony is consistently a barrier.

I don't get your argument because it seems like Fortnite is crossplay between every platform except PS4. That means Xbox, Switch, PC, and mobile users are all playing together.

Would crossplay really benefit competitors? Its more like punishing PS4 users. Its not like PS4 users only have friends on PS4. I was against MS when they were opposed to crossplay, now I'm against Sony. Crossplay is a benefit to consumers and those who allow deserve praise.
