Gamers know that there's nothing in life more frustrating than that one friend who has a different console to the rest of the group.
Sure, you might prefer the Xbox One, but everybody else is using PlayStation 4 these days!
Playing on different consoles can often bring up other issues too - especially when FIFA is involved.
How many times have you heard the 'you only beat me on PlayStation because I play Xbox' excuse after you've smashed your mate 5-1?
Or the equally annoying 'if we were playing on Xbox, I'd have won easily'.

Well, the good news is that these arguments will soon be a thing of the past.
That's because Sony have announced that cross-platform play has finally passed BETA testing on PS4 - meaning gamers will soon be able to play against their friends on Xbox and PC.
"The PS4’s cross-play efforts have officially moved out of the beta stage," the company revealed in an interview with WIRED.
Games like Fortnite, Rocket League and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare already support cross-platform play, but Sony will now open up the capabilities to all developers.
That means EA Sports will soon have us matchmaking with all our friends on FIFA, no matter what console they use.
This news actually comes at a good time considering how upset fans have been with the latest installment of the game.
FIFA 20's release was met with a lot of negativity. Last Friday, #FixCareerMode was trending worldwide on Twitter as gamers voiced their anger at the bugs in the popular game mode.
What's even worse is the fact that the title has received a user score rating of 1.3/10 on Metacritic, based on 540 reviews.
Football fans are very upset with FIFA 20, but the promise of cross-platform play in the near future could help EA win back some gamers.News Now - Sport News
