Sony announced a few weeks ago that they are decreasing the prices of their monthly subscription for PS Now because of the competition in the market from Google’s Stadia and Microsoft’s Xcloud. Sony PlayStation 4 is the most sold console of this generation. Recently PlayStation 4 crossed the hundred million mark in its sales which is expectedly almost double that of Microsoft’s Xbox One. There is no way to know the exact difference as Microsoft officially does not give out its sales numbers anymore. But it is evident that Xbox one has fallen behind PlayStation 4 in terms of sales. Xbox one has had cross-platform availability with Windows PC but PS4 did not have any cross-platform availability.

Sony has revealed (not so grandly) that it will be introducing cross-platform play officially with the upcoming Call of Duty Modern Warfare game so whether they are on Xbox or PC players will be able to play with PS4 users. This is a huge step forward for Gamers of all platforms. We know that PS5 will be backward compatible (that means games from PS1 through PS4 will be able to run on ps5 And hopefully ps5 will continue its cross-platform compatibility.
