When Sony had the market by the balls, not having crossplay with it's main competitor (and pretty much only at the time, poor Wii U) was beneficial for Sony. But now that Switch is quickly getting a very serious contender and visibly teaming up with Microsoft in Minecraft, it's going to make more harm than good.

Minecraft crossplay on Xbox and Switch?
That'd be spicy.

Switch and xbox are really showing no ability to affect ps4 sales in a significant way. And with the insane line up of ps4 exclusives and 3rd party deals on the way this ain't gonna change. Wishful thinking to believe otherwise.

whats the point of doing it for only 1 game? I think fortnight is really big on ps4. I mean there going through the trouble of making a bundle, they want to associate it with playstation.  

Funny, I thought their motto was "For the Players", not "For our Bank Accounts".

I'd imagine anti-consumer practices meant for nothing but to monopolize the market, won't do so well for that brand image.

I'm pretty sure their slogan means for the (PS4) players, not for the players of other consoles.

Another easy week for ps4. Increasing the huge gap over its rivals. Outselling xb1 almost 3 to 1. The fortnite outcry won't change a thing. In fact thanks to fortnite Sony will outsell the competition by even more soon enough thanks to this badass bundle. Sony are genius. 

 

 

BTW allowing crossplay could hurt sales not help it. Having to buy a ps4 to play with your friends is a huge selling point and it's no wonder ms have been trying so hard to remove that advantage. Sony will stick to their guns. At best they will allow switch along with pc and Mobile but never xbox.

In the US...maybe a little bit. In Europe, Asia etc?! Not a dent...do you really think a tiny MS player base in those areas will make much of a difference?

This has practically been PS4's only selling point this gen. Money$oft is just upset because that was their advantage yesteryear.

Its every consoles main selling point ever.... MS and anyone with a lick of sense knows that.

A lot of people buy what their friends has to play that game they played at their friends house or with their friends. If MS were the ones in sony's position they wouldn't do cross play. 



Can't wait to see next week with PS4 price cut.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Ya thats not happening.

Shipments were 17.79m as of March 31.

Quarterly non-holiday shipments have been 2.74m, 1.96m, 2.93m & 2.93m

We should be looking at more like 20.5-21 million at the end of June.
