Nintendo And Microsoft Shook Hands To promote Cross-Play

The cross-play engagement will directly impact Sony's gaming world presence

Nintendo And Microsoft Shook Hands To promote Cross-Play

It’s always better to engage in friendly talks rather than making foes, and Nintendo and Microsoft recently adopted the same concept. In one of the advertisements of Nintendo Switch update for Minecraft, we can spot Xbox and Switch logos together. The update enables Minecraft cross-play with PC, Xbox One, and smartphones. After taking over from Mojang, Microsoft currently publishes the sandbox video game.

In an easy-going approach, Switch allows cross-play, which actually promotes rivals console.

Playing your favorite game on the gaming console, that too with your best buddy was something virtually non-existent till now. The new advertisement is seen as an upliftment for the player to create, explore, and survive together in Minecraft on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The advertisement is released on Nintendo’s official YouTube channel.

On the conflicting lines, Sony doesn’t allow cross-play. The fact was verified during E3 that the PS4 does not support cross-play between consoles, especially when the top games like Fortnite, Minecraft, and Rocket League are already allowing a variety of crossplay.

The new pact between Nintendo and Microsoft will undoubtedly make some pressure on Sony to open up to cross-play. If approved by Sony, the move will only add gamer community to its league.

Also, the Nintendo and Microsoft’s friendship will further dent the gaming presence of Sony in the market. You may also call it a marketing tactic, but whatever it is, the move will benefit both the parties.

In one of the attempts by Nintendo, the Japanese multinational company hinted to bring the cross-play to the PS4. But as of now, Sony hasn’t paid any heed to it. We expect Sony to enter into some kind of alliance with other gaming giants to bring the gamers into one place.

Sony’s refusal to allow players’ to use their Epic Game accounts on the Switch or the Xbox One was something very disappointing for the gamers all across the globe.
