I'm loving this recent trend of Microsoft and Nintendo getting along where multiplayer cross-play is concerned. Minecraft's Better Together update is out today for the Switch, allowing Switch, Xbox, iOS, and Android players to all play together. Notice anyone missing from that list?
Yep, Sony screws its players once again by not allowing any form of cross-play with its device. This isn't very uplifting news considering Sony is under major fire from the fans for screwing over their players in Fortnite too. In case you didn't hear, if you sync'd your Fortnite account to a PS4, you can't play that account anywhere else -- they literally tell you to make a new account.
With respect to this version of Minecraft, I really want them to get on board with some sort of mod-like package. I want pipes, machines, and automation to exist. Redstone isn't enough. I like having tubes and building systems. So imho this vanilla-craft is still very lacking.
I want this cross-play harmony to continue! If Nintendo can keep the cross-play going with Microsoft, there's a seriously bright future in store for everyone involved. Friends can play together more, communities for games remain active longer, and players aren't forced to make as many hard choices.
Enjoy fading off into obscurity, Sony.
