Sony’s Shawn Layden comments on potential PS4 cross-play

Sony has been hit with a wave of backlash recently regarding their decision not to support cross-platform play with Nintendo Switch and Xbox One users. The company hadn’t made a statement on the matter, but recently, CEO Shawn Layden offered a brief comment on the issue.

We’re hearing it. We’re looking at a lot of the possibilities,” said Layden. “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,” he added.
