Sony’s Biggest Mistake That Can Destroy Playstation 4
PlayStation 4 is beating the competition with amazing exclusives and selling more than 60 Million units in just 4 years. PS4 Pro is the 4k PlayStation you wished for and it is the best time of Playstation since the launch of PS2. In conclusion, PS4 is the console you should get right now! with exclusives like Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4, Nioh And Nier Automata. I definitely recommend getting a PS4 but what is the one thing that can nearly destroy the PS4 Winning streak? CROSS-PLAY.
If you don’t know what I am talking about then let me explain. I am talking about Cross-play and what is Cross play you may ask well it means:
n video games, cross–platform play or cross–play is a term used to describe the ability of a video game with an online gaming component that allows players using different video game hardware to playwith each other simultaneously.
Now you know the meaning of Cross-Play we can get started. So At E3 2017 Microsoft introduced Minecraft cross-play with Nintendo Switch and PC. Everybody seems to be excited by the method of Cross-play so that players can finally play with their friends even if they are on different consoles.
What seems so weird at the press conference was that PS4 was not listed on the Cross-Play with Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. It pissed off many players that Sony refused to agree with other gaming consoles to cross-play.
Jim Ryan comments on refusing Cross-Play.
Sony’s Jim Ryan said the company doesn’t have “a profound philosophical stance” against cross-platform play and pointed to previous examples of such play between PlayStation and the PC. For Rocket League and Minecraft, however, “it’s a commercial discussion between ourselves and other stakeholders, and I’m not going to get into the detail of that on this particular instance,” Ryan said.
It’s a very nonsensical explanation give by Jim Ryan because as of I know Microsoft and Nintendo also care about security and probably they are better than Playstation security when it comes to online play *Cough*PSN Hack 2011*Cough*
I am really disappointed by this decision that Sony has chosen but we can’t do anything and even creating petitions and stuff won’t help either. This small decision could be the reason for the death of PS4.
