Nintendo And Microsoft Are Rubbing Sony's Face In It

Nintendo And Microsoft Are Rubbing Sony's Face In It


We’re conditioned to expect console manufacturers to be bitter rivals, constantly at each other’s throats in a battle for market supremacy. But sometimes, the enemy of an enemy can be a friend.

We got a reminder during E3 that the PS4, unlike most other platforms on Earth, does not support crossplay between consoles. That means that if you have an Xbox One, and a friend of yours has a PS4, and you both want to play the same game together, you can’t.

Some of the world’s biggest games, from Fortnite to Minecraft to Rocket League, all support some variety of crossplay, allowing people with PCs, Xbox Ones, mobiles and Nintendo consoles to play on the same servers. Yet Sony continues to refuse to allow PlayStation consoles to get in on the fun when it comes to playing with Microsoft or Nintendo consoles.

In the wake of E3 and the disappointment of Fortnite’s account locking, then, two of the companies that do allow crossplay have teamed up to take a swing at the PlayStation 4 with this commercial for Minecraft, a game that’s also available on PS4:

And they’re really rubbing it in:





This isn’t an ad designed to highlight the platforms that are playing together. It’s designed to highlight the platform that isn’t.

And while at the end of the day it’s just a marketing jab, I think it’s one a lot of people can genuinely get behind because Sony’s policy sucks, and if two rival massive companies want to have some fun with that, then have at it.

Ok. Well, they can do that, and Sony laughs all the way to the bank. It is what it is.

Funny that nobody gave MS this kind of crap when Sony was on the bottom last gen.

Must be because sony got too much advantage now with userbase.

It does seem like nintendo's getting ditched again by 3rd party developers and microsoft dug themselves a hole on this generation.

Perhaps this is trying to get some equilibrium nintendo doing crossplay in order to try to get some developers to notice that there's an actual playerbase on the console and microsoft trying to pull some nintendo base to notice them as an alternative with better graphics and online structure.

Yeah, don't let those douchelords at sony get more players.

And let us not pretend that if MS is back on top next gen they will return to their douchebag ways.
