Benefits of CrossPlay 

Multiplayer can be done together even if the game machine is different

The first merit of Genshin Impact CrossPlay is that you can multi-play together regardless of the game machine (hardware). If you want to play with your friends and family, you don’t even have to match your console.

Can be limited to the same hardware

At the time of crossplay, it is also possible to set it so that multi-play can be performed only with the same hardware. For example, if you are on PS4 and want to play multiplayer with only PS4 users, you can set it to PS4 user-only multiplayer from “Options”.


More hard choices to play the game

Another advantage of Genshin Impact CrossPlay is that you have more choices of game hardware (models). It’s a good idea to choose the hardware that suits your style, such as “I want to play casually on my smartphone” or “I want to play for a long time at home on PS4”.

Disadvantages and Precautions for CrossPlay

First, the PS4 is slow to load and it is difficult to keep pace with the laps. In cross-play, PS4 loads much slower than smartphones and PCs. When playing multiplayer with multiple people in laps etc. Furthermore, it takes a long time waiting for the PS4 user to load. Therefore, for those who want to play Genshin Impact CrossPlay, it is recommended to play with hardware other than PS4.

Second Smartphones tend to get hot and are not suitable for long hours. Genshin has a large capacity, and in the case of smartphones, the terminal tends to get very hot. There is a high possibility that the limit of one playtime for smartphone users is about 30 minutes to 1 hour, so it is not suitable for long laps with other users.
