Nintendo Switch Gets Rocket League

Rocket League announced for Switch with cross-network play

"We wanted to make sure that every mode you've come to expect plays exactly the same on every platform".

Missing from both of those lists is Sony's PlayStation 4, which will keep its players segregated to the PlayStation Network for the time being. Rocket League offers one of the deepest customization systems around and battle opponents on other platforms with groundbreaking cross-network play.

"With cross-platform play, it's a big deal that everything feels the same and looks the same so nobody feels like they're at a disadvantage", said Jeremy Dunham, vice president at Psyonix.

Things are looking good for Nintendo right now, following the successful launch of the Switch in March, which became the company's fastest-selling console.

We learned at E3 this year that Rocket League would be coming to Switch, bringing developer Psyonix's beloved cars-meets-soccer game to a whole new audience.

If you're the only one among your group playing with the Xbox One, you will have to wait for Sony to allow your console to play with others, or be forced to buy a PS4 instead. PC players can't text or voice chat with people on PS4, for example.

"It's literally something we could do with a push of a button, metaphorically", added Dunham. If we can pass that, we can pass any of the other security protocols.

Other takeaways from our chat about Rocket League on the Switch. "We are hopeful that being able to play cross network is still something we can go for", Dunham said.

Speaking to Eurogamer this week, Sony's Jim Ryan said the company doesn't have "a profound philosophical stance" against cross-platform play and pointed to previous examples of such play between PlayStation and the PC.

So we know that Skyrim is coming to the Switch and features exclusive content on the Nintendo platform, but how about Bethesda delivers something for those that don't like the fantasy worlds of The Elder Scrolls series? Curious, I asked him if there were any fan suggestions that bordered on the ridiculous.

This positive comment from Ryan proves that when it comes to "animosity" between the platform holders, that only exists in the gaming community, not so much the industry.
