Once upon a time there were extremely closed platforms. Once, however, because as we told you over the weekend, today we are faced with a video game from PlayStation Studios that also arrives on Xbox platforms. So, after the cover that had a certain effect, in which we saw the logo of the Sony consoles heading on a boxart in green, here comes further details on MLB The Show 21 , the next baseball video game released precisely from the Japanese house.
If the first details had already intrigued the community, now you will be even more surprised to find that not only the PlayStation home title will also arrive on Xbox platforms, but it will also with integrated cross-play . This means that players on PlayStation will be able to interact with those on Xbox and vice versa .
«MLB The Show will be launched on the date and day indicated on PS4 and PS5 with cross-platform on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S »tweets PlayStation, tagging the official profile of the cas to Microsoft and following the words with a nice handshake that smacks of fair play.

Even Sony, in short, increasingly embraces the policy whereby the important thing is that you play video games and make references to the “competing” console is anything but impious or inadmissible. The Japanese company, you will remember, was the one most reluctant to integrate cross-play until recently, when it kept waiting on video games like Fortnite , only to then gradually revise its position. p>
We will then see what the relationship between Sony and Microsoft will be in the course of the new generation, with Phil Spencer – head of the Xbox division – who has always shown great openness towards other players in the sector of video games, to the point that some time ago the official account of the Redmond house praised the PS5 as a next-gen console in response to a user who claimed to want to buy it, despite coming from Xbox One.
