Microsoft spent all of last generation telling Valve and Sony to fuck off about cross-play so you reap what you sow.

I don't think they ever said it to Sony, but they did try to avoid doing it with the PC, and this makes sense.

I think the originally pitched version of Mechwarrior 5 got canned because Microsoft refused to get on board if it was also released on the PS3: Link

I expect that wasn't the only instance, either. A quick search ('microsoft ps3 crossplay 360 -ps4') suggests Microsoft explicitly put the kibosh on crossplay in Defiance and Trion, and turned down Valve's offer to integrate Steam with Portal 2 for PS3/PC/360 cross-play.

I don't think they ever said it to Sony, but they did try to avoid doing it with the PC, and this makes sense. It still makes sense. How is that fun for 99% of players?

Controller players don't want to play against mouse players, and vice versa.
