In an unprecidented move it seems as though Sony have finally decided to join the rest of the world in sharing an online space by allowing games to finally be played cross-platform online. This comes after the most recent Call of Duty Beta test in which the matches were allowed to be played across different consoles and even PC which was a startling surprise.
Sony have stated that the choice for allowing cross-play between consoles will be up to the developers of each game now which is a massive change from the previous digital jail that Sony placed all PS4 games in beforehand, most famously being when Fortnite came to the console and despite everyone else sharing servers the PS4 version was locked away from all other participants.
It’s a massive change and one that will make playing games together far more enjoyable in the future. It’s understandable why Sony were so tightly knit and scared beforehand to have this option considering the massive data leak and subsequent shutting down of all their gaming services in 2011 but it seems as though things are finally starting to look up for the company. In a perfect world maybe we won’t have exclusives either eventually, one can only hope however.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
