You would think that when these companies say they are listening to their fans... they do something to respond. Either by acknowledging or delivering.
In the case of MS, they may be acknowledging but they aren't delivering in terms of fan requests for more games. They like to run their mouth on other subjects like cross play. Now cross play is a really nice option and one I truly believe Sony is avoiding simply out of spite but at least Sony is delivering the games while not really acknowledging this subject.
I also don't think it has anything to do with market leadership. Sony doesn't change hands as often as MS's gaming division. Last gen when Sony broached the idea, MS was quick to shut them down. Well... just remember who was in charge last gen over at MS. You got Ballmer (head of MS) and Mattrick (head of Xbox) neither of whom had as much of fond respect for Sony like Phil has (even before he took over for Mattrick).
Can we assume that the ones in charge could be at fault for f-ing this whole situation up??? Last gen it would have been AWESOME to compete with gamers (no matter what platform) in the same games. This gen is no different and honestly this mentality that because the big guys say so then we (the gamers) must also agree is just stupid.
Set your console allegiances aside for a moment and think about the overall aspect of WHY we play games. We play to have fun and having MORE people to play with, regardless of system, is NEVER a bad thing.
"It's a pr move. They can't say "hey we have awesome exclusives" so they yell about cross play and backwards compatibility."
What a load of nonsense. You've deflected to the 'exclusives' point whilst arguing that MS are deflecting on Cross Play- IN AN ARTICE regarding crossplay.
"You would think that when these companies say they are listening to their fans... they do something to respond. Either by acknowledging or delivering. "
Exactly. Instead of fans recognising a problem- they are making excuses on Sony's behalf on cross play with some of the most ludicrous comments I have read. And then by employing through amazing mental gymnastics, keep blaming MS for this

You're asking too much from the majority on here
