Rocket League Devs Say PS4 Cross-play Is A "Checkbox" Away

This E3 has been a good one for many who are fans of playing online games with friends and strangers across different console and PC platforms.

We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation-curated universe.

That excuse seems a little weak to us considering that even the usually overprotective Nintendo is comfortable connecting Switch Minecraft with other platforms. With games like this, the Nintendo Switch should continue to pick up speed. "That's all we need to do".
