On the base surface, many avid users of either Nintendo, Sony, or Microsoft’s video game systems only view the trio as competitors. And while the three’s ambitions is to deliver products that will drive revenue, the party also pursue delivering an enjoyable and even more accessible experience for its user base. So when all firms collaborate every blue moon, we understand its in the betterment of the industry.

Previously, all three came together against the previous trade tariffs that President Donald Trump planned to instate against China in June 2019. The companies requested that interactive entertainment machines be exempt from the then-approaching ruling as American gross revenue – or even more so global earnings are greatly generated from the reception of video games in the past two decades.

Now once again, the three grouped as one with a new pledge – this time to bring a better experience for each player and promises to do so establishing new principles ensuring a sure haven looking ahead.

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.

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. As we continue this work, we will prioritize protecting the safety of our players, especially those most vulnerable.

As for the new pillars that will be built from the three console titans, they are: Partnerships, Prevention, and Responsibility. For the first, Microsoft/Sony/Nintendo will work closely in ensuring a user-friendly space with the industry, law enforcement, and even government officials. The second goes on to enforce standard understanding of its platforms for users and those overlooking younger players.

More specifically, this enables those unaware of the dangers that can be thwarted upon to be minimized for the safety of the user. Thirdly, all three companies pledges to stand at the feet of the law alike its users. “We hold ourselves accountable for making our platforms as safe as possible for all players,” the statement reads in the post. So either malicious users or the companies themselves will be rightly judged if spun into injustice.
