I have brought this up before, but whole crossplay crusade was insane from a business point of view. The entire point of building up a console base by selling consoles for a loss, by spending millions on exclusives and delays to maintain quality third parties simply dont care about, the entire point of all of that is to build up a bigger userbase for your online eco system. Letting your rival company access your userbase is absolutely moronic because it rewards them for their mistakes. They can go out there and produce a gimped console with kinect, tv and other nonsense, fail at garnering a userbase, and then they get a bigger userbase without actually having to rebuild trust with the consumer and SPEND to earn those users back? Nah, we are just going to cry on twitter and cancel execs until they fold and get access to all their FREE F2P users while we charge $60 in XBL Gold in our F2P games. I remember saying whats next? Start a campaign to put Uncharted on xbox? Well, they wanted to put gamepass which is even worse lmao.
With all that said, I still think crossplay is a good thing for both consoles, but not for games like COD and Destiny that already have massive userbases and pvp. PvE and coop sure, but letting PC players in was always going to be ridiculous considering how bad cheating has always been on PC. In Elden Ring, this dude joined my game and started dropping all these different items that i accidently picked up. I had no idea what he was doing. Thankfully they werent items that deleted your save, but i got so many souls and end game weapons that it made earning them feel unrewarding.
