Rocket League dev laments Sony's 'political barrier' keeping crossplay off PS4

Nintendo recently revealed at E3 that Rocket League was coming to the Switch and it would feature cross play. Do you think Sony's reasons for not allowing cross-play on their platform for Minecraft and Rocket League are legitimate?

Dunham appears to remain optimistic about Sony's position on cross-play, which makes sense considering PS4 to Steam play is something that works in Rocket League. "We've got to be mindful of our responsibility to our install base".

So there you have it folks, a lot of interesting words from Rocket League developer Psyonix.

According to Dunham, Psyonix has met all the technical requirements to support cross-platform play.

"The fact that somebody would make an assertion that somehow we're not keeping Minecraft players safe, I found, not only from a Microsoft perspective but from a game industry perspective...." He said that PlayStation 4 already has 60 million players, and that's enough to populate an online multiplayer game.

So there we have it, E3 2017 is done for and we've got a whole host of new games to look forward to over the next 12 months.

So we know that Skyrim is coming to the Switch and features exclusive content on the Nintendo platform, but how about Bethesda delivers something for those that don't like the fantasy worlds of The Elder Scrolls series? Sony, sitting comfortably ahead of their rivals in the current sales war, had no new major hardware to promote, instead settling on promoting an equally solid and uninspiring slate of upcoming blockbusters. Local multiplayer wasn't demoed in this build, so we'll have to wait and see how that will run. "All we need is a green light from Sony". From our vantage point it's a competitive disadvantage not to support multiple networks, because most platforms are now doing that. Or, because the communities for these games have become so huge, the risk level for opening up the network to other networks you have no security control over is too great.

It's obvious that Sony is happy to open up its network for cross-platform play when it suits them. That's why it's up to them to help push us and Minecraft and all the companies that want to do a similar thing. "That's all we need to do".

An exact release date for Rocket League on Switch has yet to be announced, but it is expected to launch this holiday season on the console. That's gaming now. Gaming should be community-driven.
