Almost one day old post, but didn't see it popping up here. Throw the ball in my court if old.

Probably they're still trying to protect the children.

This is getting silly.

And it's seemingly both sides on different fronts as MS just shut down the crossplay potential of Fortnite.

Fortnite PC PS4 Xbox One worked externally (beta) and it's probably patched out now. Sony don't want cross play with xbox.

Fortnite can play PS4 PC and XBOX ONE!!!? I figured PS4 and PC would be able to play together, but apparently xbox one can play with them too? If xbox wasn't supposed to be able to play with PS4 players, or even PC players (epic) it could be patched out, it's early access and this seems like it's most likely an oversight.

They are providing the games. You know the reason ppl buy consoles for and why would Sony give Xbox a bigger community

Cause it is usually the same people posting the same comment in every cross platform thread.

Maybe because Sony isn't changing its mind and the issue keeps popping for more and more games ? Why wouldn't they post the same thing if nothing is changing.

They should work on performance, pretty sure Sony allows that.

Best post in the thread.

Most of the other posts in here could be predicted with uncanny accuracy.

Yep, crossplay would be nice. My expectations for getting it are pretty low.

Is it me or wasn't Sony last gen all open to the idea of having cross play with other consoles? If so then oh how things change depending on who is top dog and who isn't. I really want Sony to fall back in terms of sales a bit just so that they get their heads out of their asses and agrees to stuff like this but hey that ain't happening anytime soon I guess...

Judging by people's reaction in every thread about Minecraft on PS4 : he certainly does.

No, but it was shut down with PC<>Xbox because of Microsoft, which makes their whole arms open approach moot if they're picking and choosing.

Believe me, I have been and am pro-crossplay about as much as anyone on this board, but it's no good if MS are breathing hot and cold.

Not sure I understand your implication here?

Trying to spin Sony's fault toward Microsoft is a very classic behaviour that was extremely common on threads about the Minecraft Better Together Update, and your post seemed to indicate that you were of the same mind, but if you weren't then I take back what I said.

Patchnotes said it was removed due to Microsoft Policy.

Edit: They updated the post and removed the line, but it originally stated:

Xbox
Fixed a rare audio crash on Xbox One.
Per policy discussion with Microsoft, removed ability for PC friends to join players on Xbox One
