No PS4 cross-platform support for Rocket League

They want to play with Switch owners, PC owners and Xbox One owners for these two big and important games, and they don't have an explanation for why.

"Online Multiplayer supports up to eight players, and Cross-Network play will be supported as well, allowing Switch players to hit the field with players on Steam and Xbox One".

The comments come from Psyonix executive Jeremy Dunham, who discussed the Switch release of Rocket League in an interview with Polygon.

Additionally, many new VR games were revealed, such as Skyrim and Star Child, allowing PSVR users to play even more high-quality and immersive titles. The big question now is "how will Rocket League run?" This game reminded us a lot of No Man's Sky if it actually kept any of its promises, mixed with LEGO Dimensions.

Not that he had to tell me.

And if you look at what has been shown at E3 2017 for the Nintendo Switch, I think you'd be pretty pleased.

As said Nintendo focused on the new Switch console which can be used as a home console as well as a portable handheld console. "No, Nintendo announced Metroid Prime 4 and Pokémon Switch, and even though both are probably years away, they overshadowed all else".

Four years after the Xbox One launched, the souped-up Xbox One X arrives, and comes in with the same US$499 (RM2,130) price tag. Being able to connect many Joy-Con to a Switch opens the door for group play in local multiplayer, and "Rocket League" is going to have that.

"The fact that somebody would make an assertion that somehow we're not keeping Minecraft players safe I found - not only from a Microsoft perspective, but from a game industry perspective - I don't know why that has to become the dialogue", he said. PlayStation 4 is not a part of the equation due to Sony's continued staunch stance on cross-platform play, and it doesn't look like that will be changing any time soon. Curious, I asked him if there were any fan suggestions that bordered on the ridiculous. That's gaming now. Gaming should be community-driven. The game has added a new arena mode where you can battle it out against Egypt's toughest foes and includes the ability to use an eagle as a reconnaissance plane to scout ahead.
