Cross Play

So one of the biggest stories this week was that Sony has changed its policy on cross-play. It announced that it was holding a cross-play Fortnite beta on PlayStation 4, allowing users to match up with Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, PC, and Mac players. Quite the turnaround.

Of course, Fortnite could just be the start. While we have serious doubts that big publishers will suddenly allow cross-play on all of their blockbuster titles -- Bethesda has already said that Fallout 76 won't have cross-play, even after Sony's stance change -- it'll be interesting to see whether select games like Rocket League will make use of all this.

But as always, we want to know what you think. Do you really care about cross-play, or is it just something that people love to whine about? Vote in our polls, and then give us an honest opinion in the comments section below.
