PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo have announced that they're joining forces to create a safer gaming environments for gaming communities, be they playing on a Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation platform. “All players deserve to have fantastic social gaming experiences in settings where respect and safety are mutual,” said Corporate VP of Xbox Operations, David McCarthy in a post on the Xbox Wire.
“At Xbox, we are aligned with both Nintendo, on behalf of the community of Nintendo Switch players, and PlayStation in our belief that protecting players online requires a multidisciplinary approach – one that combines the benefits of advanced technology, a supportive community, and skilled human oversight,” McCarthy added.
“We can accomplish more when we work toward the same goal, and so we will each continue investing in, evolving, and amplifying our approaches to user safety,” he continued. “As we continue this work, we will prioritise protecting the safety of our players, especially those most vulnerable.” To that end, Xbox has outlined the following three principles that will guide its partnership with Sony and Nintendo:
Prevention: Empower players and parents to understand and control gaming experiences.
Partnership: We commit to partnering with the industry, regulators, law enforcement, and our communities to advance user safety.
Responsibility: We hold ourselves accountable for making our platforms as safe as possible for all players.
This all sounds like a very positive step in protecting players, which McCarthy acknowledges will be “challenging in a digitally and often instantaneously connected world.” He concluded by pledging a commitment to working with Sony and Nintendo to “improve player safety and ensure gaming remains truly for everyone,” adding that “no one company or industry will solve these challenges alone.”
