I totally agree Wubbledoss but unfortunately when kids can no longer play with their friends as they have moved onto PS4s it becomes an issue, especially when you are dragging them reluctantly around the world! It is very frustrating when game manufacturers do this, especially when the games are not even compatible. I refused to buy it at Christmas for the same reason you said, but son has saved every penny to buy his own and got a great deal of a friend. Just wanted to make sure he could still play against his Uk friends once we land? Anyone out there with a PS4 or experience of this it would be great to hear from you. Thanks everyone for their comments.
