Sony Has A Weak Excuse For Not Allowing Cross-Platform Play

What we do know is gamers did want it and simply having the option wouldn't hurt anybody.

Over the summer, the game will offer you an update automatically as long as you own it.

The whole timed-exclusivity thing is unusual coming from Microsoft, considering what chief Phil Spencer said awhile back. "The team really set out to say, 'How do we bring Age of Empires back the way you remember it?'" And sometimes that's even if the way you remember it isn't exactly the way it really played.

This is especially confusing because Microsoft claims all games, even those that haven't been enhanced, will still perform better on the Xbox One X compared to other Xbox One models.

The biggest fallacy in this theory is the fact Sony has been pushing PS Now hard for a while now.

Is there a Sony PlayStation E3 2017 Media Showcase livestream? Seems a bit ironic to me.

Then again, people are rarely satisfied.

Speaking to GameSpot today at E3, Microsoft's Dave McCarthy discussed cross-play with competing platforms. Stone wrote. He added that these improved graphics are totally optional - if you like the original look of the game, you can keep it.

Sony PlayStation 4 has dominated the latest generation of consoles, outselling Xbox One by 2-to-1, according to industry trackers. There's a console missing from that equation, and Sony's explanation for why that's the case is not good.

Microsoft reaffirmed its focus on PC gaming in a big way a year ago with its Xbox Play Anywhere initiative.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe President Jim Ryan was asked what's going on with the lack of cross-platform support between PlayStation and other consoles. The excuse exclaims that due to their inability to "control that environment" they can't guarantee a proper experience for their users. It could be that Microsof is using higher-quality components in the One X, and this could make a difference. Absolutely I am, because that's what E3 is all about.

"Right now", Psyonix vice president Jeremy Dunham told IGN, "we're literally at the point where all we need is the go-ahead on the Sony side and we can, in less than a business day, turn it on and have it up and working no problem". The decision isn't as easy as you'd think. The One S can be found for as little as £200 in the United Kingdom, while the One X will cost more than twice as much at £450. Now, players across nearly every platform will be able play together online through the "Better Together Update".
