When Destiny first came to the fold, it was a PlayStation-exclusive franchise, which is one of those things consoles love because it validates their existence in this PC-dominated hellhole we call reality. Unfortunately, Sony is not what you’d call a graceful master, and when Bungie got the chance to escape Sony’s clutches they did. While Destiny 2 still offers PS4 players some exclusive content and early access to certain stuff, it’s still available to other gamers now, which is great if you really just want to be bored for a few hours.
But I’m getting off-topic. I bring this up because, in the latest Kotaku Splitscreen podcast, Jason Schreier let it drop that Sony is so controlling that they refuse to even let people transfer characters between platforms because they, and I quote, “want players to associate Destiny with PS4.”
Destiny 2, you see, is just one of many games that don't have cross-platform play. And while Sony claimed, a while ago, that it was now “open season” as far as cross-platform play, so far all that’s really meant is that Fortnite and I think Rocket League are now cross-platform. Everything else, from Fallout 76 to Wargroove, have been ‘rejected’ in their efforts to enable cross-platform play.
So there you have it. Sony being a jerk again. That’s ultimately all this news is, when you boil it down. Surprise!
