You may have heard of Paladins; it is the game that has a very uncanny resemblance to Overwatch. Soon it will be making its way over to the Nintendo Switch and rather interestingly, the game will support crossplay between the Xbox and the Switch. In other words, players of both consoles can play together. Check out the latest trailer below:
However, the PS4 is left out of the lurch here no doubt as as result of Sony’s continuing stance on refusing to allow crossplay with its closest console competitor, the Xbox. When asked on Twitter why the game on PS4 didn’t benefit from the same great future, the Executive Producer at Hi Rez Studios had this to say:
Sony is not too keen on x-play.

Its unfortunate that Sony continues to adopt its anti-gamer stance here, when it has otherwise done so well by gamers this generation. As more and more games support crossplay between consoles, Sony might find its console community being increasingly alienated. Perhaps this will make Sony reconsider its stance sooner rather than later. Here’s hoping!
