Thread: So cross platform?

  1. #46

  2. #47
    Do we know that they will be extending crossplay to other titles?

    That they caved in on Fortnite doesn't mean they'll do it for everybody. It's clearly something they don't want to do, chances are you'd need to be a big deal like Epic to force their hand.

    I think once the genie is out of the bottle its going to be difficult to put it back in, I am sure there will be lots of hoops developers will have to jump through.

    Slightly different thing, but if I could login as my PC cmdr on Xbox, I'd buy another copy of the game..

    I would love to play Destiny with my son but I can't be bothered to change to PC for that cause I consider PS4 more convenient.
    And as everybody has his/her personal preference the big players forego opportunities for making more revenue.

    But tbh I also do not expect it coming for ED.
    If ever being implemented that would put e.g. the whole powerplay open only discussion on a complete different base of operations.

    I don't think that's correct anymore?

    I imagine many people would like the minecraft bedrock edition to come to ps4 but given it requires the user to have a xbox account I imagine it's a non-starter for Sony.

    Hello everyone,

    First off, the news of this cross-platform beta for Fortnite is really exciting. As it’s just announced, we'll be watching with interest to see how it goes!

    Though we’re excited, we've nothing to announce on how this could effect Elite Dangerous in the future. However, you'll find all the information here on our forums, across our newsletters and social pages should that change.

    Thanks

    Commence RIOT.

    I think we should start out with a hard hitting leaflet campaign, and if that doesn't work, it's time for the big guns.

    T-shirts. "Cross play in, corporate cross play hating overlords out."
    Or, "Crossed Lines In, Thick Overlords, Realise Integration Superior"

    Indeed, all that negativity here..

    Guess you all forgot that as soon it was out Xbox will get a HOTAS, Frontier played ball, as soon as it was know PS4Pro, and XboxoneX would come, Frontier played ball.

    And now with crossplay, if this will be really a thing, Frontier will do everything in their power to make it happen.

    Y'all glass half empty kind of people.. Lighten up..

    You have a much more optimistic view of the "we've nothing to announce" boilerplate than I do, LOL.

    Sorry, there's an SRV-sized hole in my glass - you know, the networking bug that's plagued us for almost a year..

    I'm super tired of forum white nights telling me to smile.

    So you gotta realize that this news regarding PlayStation does nothing to change the status quo.

    They're separate because that's what FD WANTS. No Fortnight/PS news is changing that.

    It's working this way by design.

    The BGS is already cross-platform and has been for years. Might be worth a few PR points while this is in the news.
