Sony Is In No Mood To Enable Cross-Play For The Switch, Period

Sony has enjoyed massive success with their lineup of gaming consoles this generation, that’s for sure. But the company has also received a ton of flak for their decisions lately too. With Microsoft opening doors to cross-play, Sony hasn’t been enjoying the idea that well it seems. Sony has heard a ton of backlash over the past year or two for blocking cross-play between major platforms.

The latest backlash came from the Nintendo Switch community where players were not only able to queue with PlayStation 4 gamers, but also unable to access their Epic Games accounts if they had been playing Fortnite on their PlayStation 4 consoles leading to many users feel deserted without their purchased in-game items.

Today, a spokeswoman from Sony decided to chime on the topic and it seemed to be embarrassing. The spokes woman told BBC:

“We’re always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience,” it said.

“With… more than 80 million monthly active users on PlayStation Network, we’ve built a huge community of gamers who can play together on Fortnite and all online titles.

“We also offer Fortnite cross-play support with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices, expanding the opportunity for Fortnite fans on PS4 to play with even more gamers on other platforms.”

Based on the statement above, it simply seems that Sony has lost it. They mentioned that PlayStation 4 gamers are able to queue with PC, Mac and Mobile devices. However, they didn’t mention anything about the switch and decided to end the topic. The spokes woman from Sony said:

“We have nothing further to add beyond this at this point,”

As we said yesterday, this is a horrible move from Sony. Blocking cross-play is one part, but blocking users from using their Epic Games account linked to their PlayStation accounts from players who own the Nintendo Switch is simply unethical, that’s for sure. Whether this is some form of business decision or a simple sign of Sony showing that they want to live under their cave alone, everyone would consider this decision to be horrible, period.
