I'm a consumer and not a share holder in any of these gaming companies. Unless you guys are large shareholders, why do you defend this? why? Cross-play is a good thing. There is essentially no downside to it. Sure, if you're a company that is completely obsessed with making money off your brain dead brand loyalists, then no, dont do it. but if you are a consumer and gamer, why not? I have tons of friends from college and high school that I've stayed in touch with through gaming. We all dont own the same systems, but it would be great if we could all play the same games. Seriously, some of you fan boys need a good wrap on the head with a steel wratchet. How dumb are you people? How blindly faithful? Are you guys like fanboys of every company? Do you sit there and say, I love that most airlines charge me to check bags now?
