How would a PS5 and Xbox cross-platform ban work?
To have the ability to put a cross-platform ban in place, it will want all three console suppliers to cooperate with one another. With the historical past between PlayStation and Xbox by way of different options like cross-play, and Nintendo seemingly working a closed community, that is unlikely to occur anytime quickly. That is one thing Spencer is effectively conscious of already, calling the difficulty “a tough one as an trade” to deal with in an interview with the New York Times.
In addition to a cross-platform ban, Spencer would love a method to have the ability to switch his banned consumer listing to different gaming networks with out the necessity to “recreate that in each platform that I play video video games on.” This may be a extra doubtless proposition than a blanket community ban, however it will even be troublesome to arrange with out sharing participant knowledge between the three platforms. In addition to the sensible aspect of issues, there’s prone to be few authorized hoops to navigate by way of earlier than we see both of those options.
