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:

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!

  1. I’m not sure as to why Sony isn’t joining in with this, especially as they are “for gamers”.

    On another note, how fair is cross platform? Keyboard and Mouse will have a big advantage over controllers for one, and is there any competitive advantage of having more frames per second (e.g Pro consoles vs. Switch)?

      It all boils down to giving options. PC vs Console lobbies can be separated. There is a fair point to be made about competitive advantages offered to one platform over another if parity in fps cannot be maintained. But then again, even amongst mid-gen console upgrades, there is an advantage; X1X & Pro vs X1 & PS4.
