Jacob St-Amour from Link-Cable Writes: “Since the beginning of this current generation of gaming, many have been advocates of making cross-platform play a necessity and a feature that is incorporated into each and every platform and now in late 2018, it seems this once far-fetched concept is now a reality. Being able to play some of the most popular games such as Rocket League and Fortnite: Battle Royale from one console to the next is a tremendous feat in of its own and hopefully, this can grow into something far greater for future generations to come. However, is the idea of cross-platform play all that necessary in terms of competition and growth for the video game industry and should it be a focus over other needed improvements? Well, there are arguments to suggest that it shouldn’t really matter.”
