Minecraft players on Sony's console are left to play only against other PS4 owners. NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said, "Sony's PlayStation 4, Microsoft's Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch all achieved all-time unit sales highs for a May month".

This isn't an ad created to highlight the platforms that are playing together.

While Nintendo's new trailer seems like a bit of a veiled jab at Sony, it also gets across the main point: "Minecraft" is definitely a game that's better together, regardless of what system you play it on.

Sony isn't mentioned anywhere in the video, but it's clear the trailer takes a passive-aggressive jab at the company's stubbornness around cross-play. They came to the conclusion that Sony received 16,226 articles, Microsoft received 15,416 articles and Nintendo received 10,114.

Net Neutrality Repeal Goes Into Effect
The rules also restricted ISPs from charging extra for certain traffic, creating so-called fast lanes for companies and consumers. Pai argued that net neutrality created a disincentive for internet services to invest in their networks.

Somewhat predictably, both Nintendo and Microsoft are partnering in a new marketing campaign that highlights the new cross-play features.

The games that are selected for the special pricing are PS4 exclusives, which include games such as multi-platformed games like EA DICE's 2013 shooter Battlefield 4 and Naughty Dog's 2016 adventure Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

With the recent developments in the Nintendo switch hacking scene along with the release of Team Xecuter's modchip solution for the switch, Nintendo has apparently begun taking action against users who have gone online with non-legitimate or pirated copies of games.

The question of being able to play games with players across platforms has become more and more relevant in the a year ago with Sony being stubborn and not wanting to allow it. So, if you happen to buy this bundle when it releases, just be aware you won't be able to squad up with your friends on other consoles unless Sony changes its mind. Nearly every comment on the YouTube video references Sony's cross-play stance in some way, while it is being circulated on Twitter as a masterful piece of industry shade-throwing. Sony also reportedly refused to allow crossplay with Rocket League-an executive with developer Psyonix told Polygon there were no technical problems preventing it from happening, only a "political barrier".
