The crossplay feature is indeed quite beneficial for both parties, both the developer and the owner of the game platform available. This feature alone allows players to meet each other. However, there are interesting things that Tim Sweeney revealed about Sony’s Crossplay.
Even though you have different platforms or consoles, this feature allows you to meet on one server. This technology itself is supported by Microsoft and also Xbox, which notably emphasizes this.
Team Sweeney Opens Voices Regarding Sony and Crossplay
In addition, Sony is also quite supportive of this one feature, even though it is quite late when compared to Microsoft. However, who would have thought that Sony was known to have put up a price for the crossplay feature?
As we said above, this was revealed by Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games. In the trial between Apple vs Epic Games, Sweeney said that Sony was the only company that needed compensation for losses caused by the crossplay feature.

Through this document, Sony will ask for royalty rights if their profits are less than 85%. Put simply, if their profit from microtransactions and more is below 85% on PlayStation, then they will ask for compensation.
This agreement certainly indirectly prevents players from buying items from stores other than PlayStation 5. Apart from that, the feud between Epic Games and Apple itself has yet to come to light.
