Minecraft on Nintendo Switch gets Xbox Live Achievements and Gamerscore

Inside And Limbo Head To The Nintendo Switch On June 28, 2018

Nintendo Switch edition gave the hybrid console a solid, core Minecraft experience in 2017, but it wasn't compatible with other versions of Minecraft.

Update: To avoid any upset or confusion on the matter, and for the sake of clarification: as we now understand it, only game cartridges that have been used to create illegal copies of its software will receive online bans from Nintendo.

The PlayStation 4 was the top-selling console hardware platform in May in the United States, according to industry-tracking firm The NPD Group. Yet Sony continues to refuse to allow PlayStation consoles to get in on the fun when it comes to playing with Microsoft or Nintendo consoles.

Sony has been taking a lot of flack recently for its unrelenting stance on cross-play, but the company has shown no signs of backing down so far. The light is still red. Its promotional trailer also seems to be a bit of a dig at Sony, which infamously blocked PS4 Fortnite accounts from logging in on Nintendo Switch. Additionally, there's a fair amount of other, unknown (encrypted) data in a certificate being uploaded - and certificates are also linked to Nintendo Accounts when gold points are redeemed.

Nintendo and Microsoft have teamed-up to promote cross network gameplay on the Switch and Xbox One consoles, leaving Sony as the odd man out. The clip encourages gamers to create, explore and survive together. Okay, not really, but Nintendo did put an ad today in which Xbox and Nintendo Switch owners share some Minecraft adventures. It's a clever, nearly subtle dig at Sony's cross-play restrictions. It celebrates the platforms that don't have that issue.

"Sony is listening. An internal report has indicated that by the end of this fiscal year, April 2019, console crossplay will come to PS4".

Sony did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
