Crossplay har fyldt meget i den offentlige debat for nylig, særligt efter at Microsoft for alvor åbnede op for deres systemer, og snart tilbyder komplet crossplay i blandt andet Minecraft og Rocket League, også med Nintendo Switch.
Men, Sony vil stadig ikke være med, faktisk nægter de offentligt overhovedet at overveje muligheden og derfor mener Xbox-chefen Phil Spencer at det er usikkert at det nogensinde sker. I et interview med Gamespot ved Brazil Game Show sagde Spencer følgende:
"We talk to Sony all the time. With Minecraft on PlayStation, we have to be one of the biggest games on their platform in terms of sales and gameplay. Same with Nintendo. The relationship with Nintendo on this front has been strong. They've been great supporters and we continue to collaborate with them. But I think Sony's view is different. They should talk about what their view is..."
"I have a real struggle making comments about their motivation or timelines. I know there is a certain view that says if my friends have this console, they can't play with people who buy another console. That's a reason they go buy my console. That reason is not going to go away. So we're putting Minecraft out there as one of the biggest games on any platform and allowing people to play together regardless of what device they bought. I don't think everybody is taking that same approach to the ecosystem. So I'm never going to call anything a lost cause but I think some of the fundamental reasons and certain scenarios, they're not really going away. So I don't know what would change."
