Hey Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are mocking your cross-play ‘support’

Monday, 25 Jun, 2018

On July 16, a new Fortnite PS4 Bundle is set to release that includes an exclusive "Royale Bomber" skin among other goodies. This was spotted on the PlayStation Italy Facebook page by gaming site Dexterto (via ResetEra).

Sony still refuses to allow the same.

Sony has ignored pressure from the public and from game makers regarding opening the PS4 to cross-platform play. This leak confirms it will be part of the bundle with a PS4. As of right now, a price for the PS4 Fortnite Bundle has yet to be announced. Regarding this query Gadgets 360 has personally reached out to Sony for clearing the confusion and users will be updated about this story as soon as things will be cleared by the company itself.

In a related development, it appears that Sony may be revving up attempts to introduce PS4 crossplay.

Some of these microtransactions - ranging from fashion items to weapons that give players an edge - have also made their way into full-priced console and computer games, much to the chagrin of many gamers.

Since we're talking about businesses here, that powerful shot came in the form of an advertisement - a seemingly innocuous commercial for "Minecraft" that showcases the ability to play the game across competing game consoles. This makes it a relatively slim margin between Sony and Microsoft, with a similar result happening past year, but with the companies flipped. There are two reasons behind it. In the USA the price bracket will be around $20 and in Europe, it will be somewhere close to 20 Euros, India will follow European price point. This method "actually perfectly prevents online piracy", SciresM writes, by cryptographically tying downloaded copies of games to the system and account first used to purchase them. Sony is the only major console that completely bars cross-play from happening.

Taking advantage of the weakened position Sony is in after releasing a statement that said nothing but defended its position on the cross-platform play, Nintendo and Microsoft shame the company without having to name it.
