Isn't that the case by default?

It isn't a gurantee that ps4 and ps5 players can play together on their native versions.

I really REALLY hope they reconsider and add cross platform play to the game. They need to go balls to the walls with this game to ensure it’s a hit.

ID: h376qs7

Honestly, cross-play is the only way these games will survive in years to come

ID: h37qgl2

Yep. Also Cross-Play with Game Pass nets you a huge playerbase on day one.

My poor PlayStation buds paid for Dark Alliance...

ID: h382v1m

No one with a brain would've bought Dark Alliance if they'd watched what was shown before release. Pretty obvious it wasn't going to be great, we just didn't know how bad it'd be

My poor PlayStation buds paid for Dark Alliance...

First game I've got a refund for (on PSN no less) in over 20 years

They only take fees if the Game has MXs. Otherwise tons of small Indie Games wouldnt offer it (like Wargroove)

This isn't a big deal short term but it could potentially limit it's lifespan. I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually add it.

ID: h37fvto

Is cross-platform play really as big a deal as we make it out to be though?

Like, of course, if we can have it I'd rather we had it. But I never really hear about anyone using it

ID: h37g5ps

Of course it's a big deal. It unifies your fanbase and it is a gamechanger for people who game with friends on different platforms.

ID: h37n05a

It's about as big a deal as people made the elimination of physical game manuals or backwards compatibility before digital games were popular in that you have a very vocal minority who say they care but really don't

Excited to play!

I feel like Crossplay should be almost just a standard thing in multiplayer games nowadays, so many people want it, if I game doesn’t launch with it it’s like the biggest request.

ID: h388frz

Loud people. I'm not sure there are any real numbers to back up your assumption.

7 : Anonymous2021/06/27 09:21 ID: h372b6e

That's pretty lame, full-on crossplay should be the default for every CooP game, the game's longevity would be happy.

8 : Anonymous2021/06/27 06:01 ID: h36p9eq

It’s okay with me

ID: h371tr9

Yea ok with me too, waiting review first before buy

9 : Anonymous2021/06/27 07:12 ID: h36u8i8

Like Destiny 2?

ID: h3713r4

Which is getting crossplay with PS4/5, Xbox’s, stadia and PC next season?

ID: h371bkn

Still many years after release. Setting up Crossplay issnt as easy as people think

10 : Anonymous2021/06/27 12:50 ID: h37gp45

Why the fuck wouldn’t cross gen be a thing if they’re selling it on both.

This whole cross play thing is getting wack. Sony got outed for charging when no one else does and now every time it comes up it makes me wince.

ID: h37j64r

Sony doesn’t charge though. That’s just a false narrative

ID: h37jwun


ID: h37m79u

You have a conspiracy theory for a name and you’re out here challenging “false narratives” lmao

ID: h37rv9m

I’m not trying to Stan Sony here but I really don’t understand why people don’t get why Sony would charge for crossplay. They’re the market leader in sales so it make sense as a business to want an incentive to basically give up potential sales on a game.

11 : Anonymous2021/06/27 12:39 ID: h37fsua

That's disappointing but I will buy it anyway.

Halo mcc has a filter you can use , it can’t be that difficult

ID: h381vjo

It has pvp? TIL

Lol simple then I won’t buy it as I won’t be able to play with my friends

Why do you hate having a healthier population in an online game?

ID: h37dfxt

What’s wrong with it to the point you hate it?

It’s literally just more players.

ID: h37eako

He just hates play that is gross.

16 : Anonymous2021/06/27 14:09 ID: h37ohak

Great. I don’t want to play with people from useless countries especially whiny americans.

ID: h37pi8w

Thats not what cross play means and you clearly have issues.

17 : Anonymous2021/06/27 15:42 ID: h37yy91

So not crossplay lmao

18 : Anonymous2021/06/27 16:35 ID: h3855xa

I'll insist, this is WWZ with alien skin. AA game with huge potential.

19 : Anonymous2021/06/27 17:52 ID: h38erej

No crossplay for this type of a game might kill it off. You would think this would be the special occasion where it works perfectly.

20 : Anonymous2021/06/27 18:48 ID: h38lhw7

This is stupid, PlayStation, Xbox and PC are roughly the same architecture now, the limitations are purely decision based and not hardware based. All this does is hurt gamers and developers in the end. A larger player base is good for the health and longevity of any game.

21 : Anonymous2021/06/27 21:09 ID: h392n87

Likely because Sony still doesn't like Cross Platform play.

22 : Anonymous2021/06/27 23:46 ID: h39kd16

If im going to wait for cross gen players to load i MUCH rather prefer a ps4 version that has ps5 enhancements/unlocked framerate like Ghost of Tsushima and/or God of War.

Having to wait for other players to load regardless + not taking advantage of the console anyways due to being cross gen is a waste of the pitifully small/crucial SSD space imo.

DOA then sadly
