Since E3, Sony has been on the defensive in regards to cross-play with other platforms. For the first time since the conversation heated up, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment Shawn Layden provided a glimmer of hope that there may be light at the end of the cross-play tunnel.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Layden made it clear that Sony has been listening to the growing discontent among its fanbase.
“We’re hearing it. We’re looking at a lot of the possibilities. You can imagine that the circumstances around that affect a lot more than just one game. I’m confident we’ll get to a solution which will be understood and accepted by our gaming community, while at the same time supporting our business.”
What this solution turns out to be, or when it may be put into place is yet to be revealed. However, it is good to see Sony finally acknowledge that they are looking at the issue and trying to find a way to make everyone happy.
