You don't need to log in to anything on MC Switch Edition right now, I own the game. As of in an update, I doubt Nintendo would allow this but we'll see

@shaneoh the issues one 2 many

As you know Microsoft does not announce sales numbers anymore but instead report on xbox live activity.

They will count all the switch and pc players activities in one reports.

That's the issiue

@BOBTHING who cares? If it's necessary for crossplay, so be it.

What a beautiful signature.

edit: rewording
i don't understand the problem. as long as Switch Owners don't have to paid xbox live to play crossplay (which you didn't need for PC games on Microsoft Store afaik.) then their shouldn't be an issue with it.

No, it doesn't at all. Makes no sense that people blame the XBox Live thing as the reasoning for Sony to refuse when they won't allow Rocket League either, which has zero to do with XBox Live.

Signing up for Xbox Live to play Minecraft is no big deal. You sign up once, don't pay and chances are you already have a Microsoft account anyway (that as far as I know works as an Xbox Live account too)

It's not an issue, anyone who has ever used Hotmail or MSN Messenger can that account for Xbox Live.

I personally don't mind needing to log into my Xbox Live account if I get to play with other people across systems. For me, that is the future of online gaming.
