What really interests me about this take, is that it's apparently fine to ignore the hundred+ million PC gamers out there on multiple clients, as well as those that game on mobile, eyt it's absolutely not ok to ignore PS4 users.


As far as things go as well, Sony is not the overlord of this industry, 81m users or not, no publisher should bow to them and just let them set rules for everything.

I'm not sure what you're saying here. Are you implying that not allowing cross-play, an issue for a small, vocal minority of players, and does absolutely not deny players the right to play this game, although it comes with a caveat, a well known caveat, that consumers can choose to either buy into because they don't give a shit, or pass on because it's undesirable, is comparable to threatening to shut out an entire userbase entirely?

- "As far as things go as well, Sony is not the overlord of this industry"

Maybe not. But there's a strong argument to made that among the pantheon of gaming powers, Sony claims a seat at the head of the table. Regardless, the power they wield in this sphere is substantial. They don't need to be overlords to dictate their own policy, especially as it concerns rinky-dink mobile card games.

- "no publisher should bow to them and just let them set rules for everything"

That's exactly how this shit works. All the platform holders have rules in place that go well beyond this cross-play nonsense. Bethesda is free withhold their product as they see fit. And Sony is free to, and I can't stress this enough for this particular instance, not give a fuck.

Sorry, publishers gave in the past a lot of shit to Nintendo if they made insane rules and left games off of Nintendo platforms, and they usually were applauded by the gaming community for it. Nintendo often did not give a fuck, but look what that lead to. Same with Microsoft and their plan for family share and so on at the XB1-reveal. You really want that for Sony?

I just thought: What if a publisher says, that they don't release game X on a platform, which offers no system-wide voice-chat. And Nintendo fans try to defend Nintendos backwardness and say stuff like the platform-holder makes the rules and the publisher can do so, if he is willing to lose all the sweet Switch-sales. Ridiculous.

I bet sony is shaking already at this...

This absolute imbecile should be more concern about not releasing games full of bugs, with shit framerate and in terrible state instead, that is the thing people want. Pete Hines continues to be one of the worst fucking idiots in games industry, still remember this asshole telling consumers that had massive problems with the games they released that they lied about problems just for months later them confirming they knew and still released them.

Bethesda should be careful. Sony can retaliate by replicating Fallout and Elder Scrolls, take their market share and make it even better.

Yeah, just look at how superior PS All Stars Battle Royal is compared to Smash Wii U/3DS

Make this move with Fallout 76 and then I’ll think Bethesda means business. Because there’s no way Sony will capitulate for a card game when Fortnite didn’t cause Sony to budge. They’re really trying to make fetch happen.

Both games aren’t great. One of them is hyped up mediocrity.

Bethesda has a PR move where they seem like they're pro consumer*

Same day, Bethesda Threatens to sue a man for selling his new and sealed game*

Great to you or not, doesn't change the fact one is definitely superior to the other
