As of right now Xbox One and Nintendo Switch are hanging out in the sandbox playing together and having a great time. Sony, on the other hand, is on the jungle Jim all by themselves, but they are having the time of their lives. Xbox and Nintendo want Sony to come and play, but they are not interested…. Or are they?
Sony has been the big holdouts when it comes to cross platform play. It was really Rocket League that started this, but now it is Fortnite Battle Royale that has gotten people really wanting all three teams to just get along so everyone can play together.
In a way, I have to be honest and say that I can see Sony’s point. The PlayStation is number 1 and when you are number 1 why should you even acknowledge number 2? They are the market leader and as a result, it is not like PlayStation owners are starved for people to play with.
Shawn Layden the CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment recently did an interview where he said that Sony was looking into and that they are confident they can come up with a strategy that will be, "understood and accepted by our gaming community, while at the same time supporting our business."
Of course, this is not a definitive yes on the matter and you could argue that they have no intentions at all of doing this, but does show what a very interesting time we live in.
You would also have to think that the first game which would allow PlayStation 4 players, Xbox One players and Nintendo Switch players to come together in the same game would be freaking huge so you know that games like Fortnite will want to be that game and in all honesty right now I could not think of a better-suited game than that to link all three consoles together.
Of course going forward it would open the gates up incredible specifically for Xbox One and PS4. As the two consoles are so similar could we expect games like Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII, Battlefield V, Fifa 19 and so on to all embrace everyone being able to play together?
