Sony continues to lock PS4 players out of cross-platform play

The goal for the Switch version of Rocket League is to have it feel like it does on every other platform. Rocket League on Switch will also allow players to cross-platform play with PC players.

"Rocket League" for the Switch will be out later this holiday for Switch for the price of $19.99.

Rocket League was originally released on the PlayStation 4 back in 2015 and instantly became a hit for its adrenaline fueled motor madness.

"In terms of pure greenlighting for when this project started, three months ago", says Psyonix Vice-President Jeffrey Dunham says to US Gamer, "If you wanna talk about when we first started investigating, messing with dev kits, late previous year was about when we first started looking at it".

At E3 2017, where Sony unfolded loads of new projects and revealed a lot of new info about them, they also claimed that the PS4 won't have Cross-Play functionality for the Minecraft. They want to play with Switch owners, PC owners and Xbox One owners for these two big and important games, and they don't have an explanation for why.

French Open suspended by rain, Bacsinszky and Ostapenko into semi-finals
The French Open men's quarterfinals involving Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have been postponed because of rain. She said: "The magic has been happening for me here always - even the first time I came here as a little kid".

Speaking to Eurogamer this week, Sony's Jim Ryan said the company doesn't have "a profound philosophical stance" against cross-platform play and pointed to previous examples of such play between PlayStation and the PC.

"It's literally something we could do with a push of a button, metaphorically", added Dunham. Activision needs to replicate that on the Nintendo Switch and allow players to get their Call of Duty fix on the hybrid system.

"Technically it's possible", said Dunham.

Since there are no technical limitations for cross-network play, Dunham says, "Right now it's just a political barrier we need to help figure out how to crack". Not necessarily about cross-network, but the conversation is always ongoing.

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? "All we need is a green light from Sony".
