Hey Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are mocking your cross-play ‘support’

Microsoft and Nintendo are throwing a jab at Sony with a newly launched video that promotes cross-play between the Xbox One and Switch consoles. And, of course, you can't play that game against your Xbox and Switch-wielding friends.

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. Sony Interactive Entertainment, Microsoft, and Nintendo all broke their own records for this generation when it comes to unit sales.

On top of that, Minecraft on Nintendo Switch just got an update today that allows you to unlock Xbox achievements on Nintendo Switch. While most players hope for it, console makers and game publishers haven't always been so willing.

Sensing this is a moment, Microsoft and Nintendo took things a step further.

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.

Talks before main OPEC meeting to debate 1 million bpd output hike
OPEC and its allies are discussing an output increase of 1 million bpd or more to avert future shortages and stock declines. OPEC's deal to release more supply centres on the idea of returning to 100 per cent compliance with existing, agreed cuts.

US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup
Mr Infantino said no vote could take place until discussions had taken place with the organisers of the 2022 tournament. Both bids were of a very high quality and we welcome the fact that the bidding process was both open and transparent.

As Net Neutrality Ends, Activists Push Congress to Restore Obama-Era Rules
Under the old policy, any blocking or slowing of websites would directly run afoul of the rules, inviting immediate enforcement. As chairman of the Federal Communications Commission , Ajit Pai spearheaded the repeal of the agency's net-neutrality rules.

This whole cross-play issue blew up in a big way two weeks ago when Fortnite was released for the Nintendo Switch. As such, this is the first time that a Nintendo commercial prominently features an Xbox controller.

And there was an immediate outcry against Sony. If a copy of a game is subsequently uploaded online by pirates, then Nintendo is able to check the key contained within that copy, and permanently ban any Switch hardware running it. The other major physical release for May, SMT: Strange Journey Redux, was the 3rd best selling 3DS game of May behind the Pokémon Ultra games. It's a clever, nearly subtle dig at Sony's cross-play restrictions. The size of that ecosystem would utterly dwarf PlayStation's 80 million-strong install base, potentially reaching hundreds of millions (or more) people.

When Microsoft bought Minecraft almost four years ago, it thought it was just going to get the rights to the best-selling game of the decade.

As of this writing, Brad Moon did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
