Good on them.

You know something's wrong when marketing for good, pro-gamer features such as cross-play are described as anti-[insert company].

this tenfold

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Does anyone believe Microsoft and Nintendo have the interest of gamers in mind? This is faker than my sexuality. Let's see what happens when the tables turn next generation. The end result is that, yes, it is good for gamers, but this is obviously just an atempt to destroy Sony's image.

And? Sony dropped the ball here. They do what businesses do, compete. And in the end, we should welcome this. Cause more competition is always better for us as gamers. You can bet that Sony will change its attitude towards crossplay soon enough.

Well, but it only works, because Sony let it to work. Sony would've a simple solution for that: allow cross-play between console platforms.

Does the motive matter?

Sony's for the players is just a marketing gimmick. A company can say and do whatever they want, we all know it is for the bottom line. The almighty dollar.

Thus who cares what face a company puts on, or the reason why, as long as it benefits us customers it's a good thing. At the moment, Microsoft and Nintendo have more consumer friendly practices. It does not matter if it's for altruistic reasons or monetary reasons.

Sony is the bad guy right now. The future we don't know what will happen. They may all become closed off and bad, or they may all become open and good for us. Or it may flip and Sony will be the good for consumer and Microsoft or Nintendo bad. But that is an unknown. What matters now is the present. Not the past, or the unknown future, but the present.

Do you think Sony is being "for the fans" in regards to Spiderman and the MCU? Hell no, its for the money. If Amazing Spiderman series had made billions on its own, they would have never sat down with Disney. We have to fight whoever is in power to get them to do what is best for us. If Nintendo or Microsoft become leader next gen, I don't want them to close off cross play with others. Just like I don't want loot boxes in games. We need to keep fighting and keep them doing what is good for us. Pointing out someone else did it in the past or hyperbolically stating if so and so was in same position they would do the same, helps us in no way.



Cross-play is pro consumer, that's all there is to it. Nice to see MS and Nintendo taking the right direction here and not letting greed get in the way.

This cross play crap is bloody petty.



Hmm, pie.

Didn't Sony request cross play last gen with MS? Why are they the bad guy now that the tables have turned (console sales speaking)? Didn't MS turn them down? I'm legitimately asking.

From #4theplayers, to pro-gamer crossplay marketing seeming "anti sony". What a twist.

Droves and droves of people believed the "#4theplayers" crap at the start of this gen, when in reality it was just Sony capitalizing at the expense of Microsoft. This is just more of that.

But do you honestly think Microsoft would shy away from cross play if they somehow lead next gen in sales? Seems highly doubtful given the direction Microsoft is going.
