Sony wants cross-platform multiplayer, or cross-play, in more games, PlayStation chief Jim Ryan told Axios in a recent interview.
Why it matters: Times have changed. Market-leading PlayStation notoriously dragged its feet in allowing multiplayer games to connect PlayStation fans with players on other devices.
"We support and encourage cross-play," Ryan told us, noting cross-play with PlayStation works on numerous big games such as "Fortnite," "Rocket League," "Call of Duty," "Minecraft," and, soon, "Destiny 2."
"That number will continue to grow," he said.
It's great to see Sony pushing for pro-gamer features and policies. As the market leader it ain't even in their best interest to have cross-play, but they are thinking about the ghost town community on Xbox and want to give Xbox users a full lobby to play with during these dark times for lemmings after a brutal E3.
