While Sony did nothing, Nintendo and Microsoft just embraced cross-play

Guide The Best Nintendo Switch Headsets

Microsoft and Nintendo released a joint advertisement this week showcasing the ability to play "Minecraft" across the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Some PlayStation 4 games, including "Fortnite", allow limited cross-play with PC/Mac and iOS/Android, but not the Xbox One or Nintendo Switch. In the video, you can see a Switch player and an Xbox player gaming together in the wonderful world of Minecraft.

SciresM's lengthy Reddit post goes into a good level of technical detail on how Nintendo authorizes games and systems when connecting to the Nintendo network. However, both Microsoft and Sony saw a significant downward trend in coverage whereas Nintendo experienced an increase.

Taking advantage of the weakened position Sony is in after releasing a statement that said nothing but defended its position on the cross-platform play, Nintendo and Microsoft shame the company without having to name it. Ultimately, the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch aren't in direct competition with one another.

A few months ago hackers discovered an exploit in the Nintendo Switch which, it was claimed, would be impossible for the company to stop without a hardware revision. If you were playing on Nintendo Switch, you could only play online with other Switch owners. We suspect that the pressure placed on them by Fortnite players might be the reason Sony could change their minds.

England training notes 'no advantage' for Panama
Three Lions defender Kyle Walker shared the same view as his manager on the leaked team news. Southgate said: "This morning he followed the exact programme we had planned".

Another big thing and a bit confusion in the news is that Sony has already cleared with its users that games in the PlayStation Hits range would vary from country to country but nearly all the games announced by the company are already on the PlayStation Hits page for India.

What is more telling about the commercial is the lack of PlayStation. Sony also reportedly refused to allow crossplay with Rocket League-an executive with developer Psyonix told Polygon there were no technical problems preventing it from happening, only a "political barrier".

It was Sony however which pulled ahead of the race when it came down to it.
