Chucklefish boss says Sony is responsible for lack of PS4 crossplay

PlayStation Now Sony PS4 Play Station 4 1

That much is now unknown, but at the very least this story hints at Sony's reticence to the whole concept of cross-play. A lot of titles are cross-play between both platforms, and more games are constantly being updated with the feature. First, the good news - you can pick one up at Walmart for just $39.99, the lowest price we've ever seen on the retro system. I don't believe right now there is any gating factor on that.

"I think Nintendo's doing wonderful things with the Switch, and the platform", he beamed.

Tiy, Chucklefish's CEO responded to the claim on Resetera, "We made many requests for crossplay (both through our account manager and directly with higher ups) all the way up until release month". Brice says that Chucklefish did talk to its Sony account manager, as suggested by Layden, but "were told no". "We feel like if we ring the bell and people show up here in force, people have [the] expectation 'Oh, they're going to tell us something'".

That's starting to happen more and more this past year as Sony remains the sole publisher dragging their feet when it comes to fully open cross-play; and continues to blame developers for it to boot.

Francois Sheriff Daniel Bullock, KMOV-TV reported . "This is the kind of thing that happens somewhere else, not here". Akin says the children's mother and a man at the home have been arrested on four counts each of child endangerment.

Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden recently told Game Informer that cross-play, which is now in beta on PlayStation 4, is open to all developers and that there "isn't any gating factor" to it.

"Apparently, it is now possible for Chucklefish to "*literally* toggle a switch and have it working, so while "policy work might be more complicated for Sony", it doesn't seem to be a matter of developers not asking like Shawn Layden told GameInformer.

"Just wanted to provide some balance on the issue and say that it certainly isn't a question of developers having not contacted their account managers or having dropped the ball". This is on top of Layden repeating the same mantra that PlayStation is the best place to play, also claiming "the PlayStation community is so large it's not like you couldn't fill up a lobby if you wanted to fire up a game".
