You use the words factually but state zero facts, unless you know every corporations process and have them on hand, please do tell us as I'm fascinated how you can state something as fact when you dont have anything to back that up?
No, no. In the 100 millions owners, lots don't care about that.
Yep, definitively and it drive me nuts. Specially how they treated indies.
You have a funny definition for "fact". Anyway, if Sony come out today and outright says, "We will not allow cross saving....period", what would you call it then?
Except Microsoft is allowing cross saving with Xbox.Did Call of Duty not announce recently crossplay between PS4, Xbox and PC. If this is true, then Sony has moved significantly and more big games on PS4 and Xbox will be crossplay?
I can see what they have not moved yet to allow it on Google Stadia. Microsoft and Sony have effectively teamed up to battle Google in the game streaming arena.
One could argue it's a canary in the coal mine. Discontent over the launch XBox ONE started at forum bitching, and ended with a massive sales gap.
All it’ll do is make people not want to invest into their ecosystem. Why would I purchase a GaaS title that encourages long term time and monetary investment into an experience if I’m literally trapped on a single platform?
No, he didn't.
So, Sony is not going to be the console sales leader in Generation 9 because *checks notes* "Cross-saving for the PlayStation 4 version of Destiny 2 is pending".
He's said it once (maybe twice) and that was ages ago. He now just says that they are talking to the companies and nothing else. SE have a good relationship with Sony that they wouldn't want to jeopardise by blaming them for anything.
At least he understands basic English. Its typical of some people to fly off the deep end because a line of text said something is pending. Jesus Christ stuff is pending all the time, like you know your payments from your bank and direct debits or your latest download is pending.
While it's pending, the answer is no. Treating this as if this is a just some pending short delay as if Sony just got the request yesterday is to also ignore the history of Sony trying to prevent cross-play by pretending that they have some beta for a cross-play process when the actual roadblock to cross-play isn't anything on Sony's end except telling developers "It's OK, you can do that." Which happens to be the only roadblock also blocking this.
I’ve put close to 400 hours on Destiny 2 on PS4 in like 2 months.
it's always a no until otherwise stated.
Are all companies the same? Everyone one has a way of doing shit , just cause 2 platform approve doesn’t mean shit for the other, their business aren’t run the same , Sony not just going to approve without reviewing shit first hence pending review. They could very well come out and say no after the pending approval is over, as for now it’s under review.
they need to weigh that lost revenue against people straight up not buying games due to idiotic polices like this. It also works both ways, Xbox has just as much risk of losing money due to the cross-save feature.Cross-save actually would hurt a platform holder much more than crossplay, especially on a F2P title. If someone purchases microtransactions on another platform, does Sony get a cut from that when the player logs in to their PS4? Probably not.
Cross-play just means you can play with friends on other platforms. Cross-save means potential money lost from active players.
