Even if it was an error, it does show that cross platform play would be a simple enough thing.  If only the game companies could agree to turn the switch on and let players have the ability to play with each other no matter the platform.

@CollectorOfBolts quote:

Check the article again... Unfortunately, Epic Games says it was an "error" and have turned the feature off.

^This.  It was turned off within a few weeks after the game launching.  Evidently Microsoft doesn't want anything to do with Sony and it was a breach of contract.

It was more like those intended for a purpose "errors", here how easy it is to be done, deal with the public, kind of things (or even lets leave it on for a bit and see what happens, with MS and Sony knowing and measuring reaction kind of error) 

either way they have their attention and the point has been made

All I can really say is "it's about time." Cross-platform play in more games should have existed for years. I definitely will not be one to volunteer to pay for it. But I'll be glad.

It's obvious why they won't allow it, they're both scared that they can't compete with one another. If it was a case of choosing the better console then one would succeed while the other fails but while cross platform can't happen a motive to buy a certain console is friends.

To summarise: it's business.
