So not only does fortnite have cross platform play between consoles. Today Rocket League announced that Cross Platform between all 4 platforms is live, PC, Switch, Xbox, and PS4. Just wondering if there is any talks about trying to get this running for WoT Console?

They already have the tools to do it but far as i'm aware it's all down to SONY.

Yeah, I'm just wondering if there has been an initiative to start talks, I know that they have the capability. It's just a matter of if they started talking trying to get it up, because SONY now has 2 games that is in cross platform. I don't see SONY saying no if WGC gives a good pitch to them.

Last I heard 360 players are gonna be given a boost, as they discontinue XB1 players. XB1X and 360 only support.

If there is cross platform play I want it between Xbox and PS4. Having cross play with PC would give console players a huge disadvantage

We would not be able to cross platform with PC, 2 different engines, basically 2 different games.

They have gotten backlash from that, now they have 2 games that run cross platform between the consoles.

My understanding is, Sony is not yet ready to embrace the universal cross-platform play.

 

They are doing it on a case per case basis, and there it is very difficult to understand what clinches it for one game rather than the other.

 

One thing is certain, they are really silent on what the driver is, but I could put my head on the cutting block that it has to do with " what's in it for us".

There was talk on here a couple weeks ago about XBOX getting mouse and keyboard support and WOTC getting ready for it this year I believe it said. Playing with PC or not were probably gonna find out how much a disadvantage controllers are one way or the other.
           Equal opportunity does not necessarily mean equal outcomes.

Sony dragging its heels as long and as hard as they can. They just don’t want cross play because they couldn’t care less about the players, it does nothing for them. 

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

Yes cross platform for Sony is in a Beta Test Stage, they are basically seeing what happens for them, they currently have Fortnite and Rocket League in the Beta. I wonder what is after Beta for it.

Well for starters Sony's flagship console gets to be linked to a stone age console.    That has to be a great selling point for PS4.

Sony has no choice to embrace cross platform play eventually. Microsoft and even Nintendo are all in Sony only stand to lose from being stubborn. They're just dragging their feet as along as possible because arm theyre Incredibly up their own asses because of their lead over Microsoft. That lead getting shooter is what made them cave so it will Happen well just have to wait. But WG taking initiative might help
