We keep forgetting a new Tomb Raider came out at the following link.
Ended, the cross play wars have?
It’s odd. I keep an offline document so I can write these while the PC is busy doing other things. I don’t use it all the time, but when I opened it up, the last time I had used it was back when I wrote about the whole fuss of Sony blocking cross play with Fortnite. And now, here we are, and Sony has allowed it. Further stating that it will look into other third-party cross play options.
I was all for this and I still am. I don’t play a lick of Fortnite, but if it gets Sony closer to allowing, at the very least, cross SAVES with Destiny or anything else really, then I’m all for it. Giving freedoms to the consumer is always a good thing to me, even though I can remember a time when it was unheard of – and not because of anything else other than NO ONE was doing it. It wasn’t some sense that big corporations are bad or anything, but that simply no one was doing that and we never thought they would. Microsoft opened the door slightly but it made sense. Play on your Xbox and play on your PC…excuse me, WINDOWS PC. It just went together and seemed very seamless that they would do that. Then other games and companies came on board and, while it wasn’t expected, it was no longer the surprise it once was or the revolution we’d thought it would be.
This is pretty big though. And maybe the first step to closing that gap of further deciding on which system to get a game on based on where your friends are playing.
