Shawn Layden, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) America and chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios delivered a presentation about the legacy of PlayStation at Gamelab conference in Spain. Robert Purchese of Eurogamer on the hot topic of cross-play asked Shawn Layden:
“But there seems to be an issue at the moment, that Sony isn’t listening to its players – or doesn’t seem to be – and that’s cross-play, Fortnite particularly. And I wondered if there were any plans to open it up? It seems to be Sony’s not listening.”
Shawn in response said he could offer “one short statement”. “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.”
Everyone at Remoteplay is excited at the possibility of cross-play between all devices.
