Sony: Another Explanation Behind The Lack Of Cross-Play!

The PlayStation 4 refuses to have cross-play with the Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch. Why?

Previously, we wrote about how one of the reasons behind the almost entire lack of cross-play could be money. This thought seems to be in line with Kenichiro Yoshida’s. Sony’s chief executive told the following to The Independent: „On cross-platform, our way of thinking is always that PlayStation is the best place to play. Fortnite, I believe, partnered with PlayStation 4 is the best experience for users, that’s our belief.” The joke is that for a short period, there was cross-play between the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One in Fortnite: Battle Royale.

„But actually, we already opened some games as cross-platform with PC and some others, so we decide based on what is the best user experience. That is our way of thinking for cross-platform,” Yoshida added. That all sounds dandy, but he did not expand on why there IS cross-play towards the PC (and the mobile platforms which he didn’t name for some reason) and not towards the rivals, even though he later congratulated the Xbox One‘s and the Nintendo Switch’s performance.

A few months ago, we already said the following comment: if Nintendo and Microsoft created a joint advertisement for Minecraft, that means Sony is cornered because the rivals are now standing together under one flag…
