Here are the reasons why Sony blocks cross-platform play

Super Mario Odyssey

Nintendo has always been known for keeping its content mainly for children, but the Switch allows cross-platform play for "Rocket League" and "Minecraft".

On Nintendo Switch, Rocket League will support TV Mode (1-4 players), Tabletop Mode (1 player), Handheld Mode (1 player or 2-8 players connected over Local Wireless), Local Play (1-8 players) and Online Play (1-8 players). In a recent interview with Eurogamer, PlayStation Marketing Boss Jim Ryan revealed the reason behind not going for the cross-platform play feature, and to tell you the truth the reason was baffling, hard to digest. Even when using two-player splitscreen on an undocked console, the framerate should remain solid.

On the subject of security measures that Psyonix has taken, Dunham said, "We think we've got it all covered..."

Pysonix shared that they are already working hard in tuning Rocket League for the Xbox One X and they have high targets for the game. From the sounds of it, Psyonix is all in favor of Rocket League cross play coming, but Sony is vetoing this option for now.

One thing the Switch version will have over the other versions is the addition of ad hoc multiplayer. All we have to do is check that box and it would be up and running in less than an hour all over the world. Ryan said: "We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation curated universe". We run our own matchmaking. And I can see your eyes rolling.

Rockstar performed a technical marvel when they released GTA 5 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 back in 2013 by creating a game that was incredibly vast while also being one of the best looking games on the 360 and PS3. From our perspective, we've done everything we need to do.

"It's up to the community to say, 'This is what we want, ' and say it consistently", he said, drawing comparisons to the features implemented in-game in response to community requests. A remaster for the series came out past year in the form of BioShock: The Collection that featured both the original and Infinite, both of which could run on the Switch without question. "The only thing that we know is that we can't do it yet".
