With the meteoric rise in popularity of Epic Games' hit battle royale Fortnite, the controversy has again been thrown front and center due to the fact that Fortnite gamers are now not allowed to use any PS4-linked Fornite account on the Nintendo Switch or Xbox One, meaning all account progression and unlockables are unavailable.
While Nintendo's new trailer seems like a bit of a veiled jab at Sony, it also gets across the main point: "Minecraft" is definitely a game that's better together, regardless of what system you play it on. Currently, the hottest video game on the planet, Fortnite was downloaded over 2 million times by Nintendo players in its first 24 hours of availability.
For now, Sony remains elusive about its plans for cross-play - if it has any at all.
The question of being able to play games with players across platforms has become more and more relevant in the previous year with Sony being stubborn and not wanting to allow it.
Check out the trailer for yourself below! However, both Microsoft and Sony saw a significant downward trend in coverage whereas Nintendo experienced an increase.
But cross-platform gaming doesn't just let people play together, it makes it easier to leave one platform behind entirely, as players bring their progress and friends lists with them.
In other words, pirating games is always a lose-lose situation and users should always support the developers by purchasing the great titles available on platforms such as the Nintendo switch.
We got a reminder during E3 that the PS4, unlike most other platforms on Earth, does not support crossplay between consoles.
Sony is similarly doing this in the background for its PlayStation 4-exclusive console games that have launched, Mr Yoshida said.
Since Fortnite is already free-to-play, the bundle has to be a bit more creative with stuff to include. If Nintendo bans a Switch from going online, it's at this stage the connection will fail.
Sony has also put the kibosh on Rocket League cross-play, as well as Minecraft.
