Sony has a reason for keeping consumers from playing games with their friends – Sony boss Kenichiro Yoshida says that the PS4 has no cross-platform play simply because the console is superior to every other.
Kenichiro Yoshida spoke at the IFA technology show in Berlin, claiming the company doesn’t fully support the concept of cross-platform play because they believe their console is better than all the others, a natural enough sentiment for a Sony man – his entire statement:
“On cross-platform, our way of thinking is always that PlayStation is the best place to play. Fortnite, I believe, partnered with PlayStation 4 is the best experience for users, that’s our belief.
But actually, we already opened some games as cross-platform with PC and some others, so we decide based on what is the best user experience. That is our way of thinking for cross-platform.
I think competition is always good. Healthy, fair competition is always good for the industry and growth. I think competition with Nintendo and Xbox is a healthy situation.”
