Microsoft has slung fresh mud at Sony regarding its reluctance to allow cross-play in Fortnite between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners, saying the format holder 'isn't listening to gamers.'
The Xbox One console maker was responding to comments from Sony chief Kenichiro Yoshida, who said that the reason it won't allow cross-play is the fact it believes PS4 is 'the best place to play.'
'[Sony still] isn't listening to gamers,' said Xbox engineer, Mike Ybarra, in a post on Twitter. 'All games should be cross-play and progression with the right input flexibility and gamer options.'
He also pointed out that Microsoft has its foot in both the console and PC market, after one user observed that PS4 has been outselling the Xbox One for ages.
'We run Windows and Console,' he said. 'Larger gaming audience who wants to play together. Gaming is diverse, if you only serve to bring joy to part of an audience then you are behind in many, many ways.'
