Sony’s resistance to www.lolga.com cross-play on PS4 got a lot of attention when Fortnite launched on the Nintendo Switch earlier this year, but this is a saga that has been running far longer than that. Though the topic of cross-play is one that’s come up from time to time across multiple console generations, Sony’s hesitance to enable it on the PS4 specifically came to light in a big way back in 2016.
Rocket League Prices developer Psyonix actually started pushing for cross-play first, telling users that it was ready to flip the switch on cross-play between Xbox One and PS4 whenever Sony agreed to it.
