We need to merge the boards for games that are on multiple platforms. If you have a question or comment or request that is specific to your platform, just tag the title with [PS4] or [Xbox One] or [PC], etc.

This isn't brought up fairly regularly, and basically since each release has its own product code and some small differences, there's no intention of combining the boards of cross-platform games.

But 90% of the time when someone wants to discuss a game, it is relevant to all the platforms the game is on. How hard would it really be to have users simply put a tag on their threads? [XB1], [PS4], [PC], etc.

It doesn't matter. It's been stated numerous times by the admins that they currently have no intention of changing this, and if they did it wouldn't be because of a topic on this board.
Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.

Which means it's been requested numerous times. Which means a lot of people want it. Don't see why they wouldn't do it. "Unique product code" and "small differences" don't seem like very good reasons.

If there happen to be any admins looking at this topic, then I'd like to request a more detailed explanation as to why this change wouldn't be feasible.

have each game link to the same board, and by the side of each board would be a list of platforms the game is on which links back to the unique product code of the individual releases.

No one said it isn't. It's not happening because the admins have decided that's not how they want the site set up and functioning. No amount of debating is going to change that.

It does seem kinda redundant, esp if some of the boards are more or less dead. I'd think it would free up space on the server and help by combining users to make an overall active board. I'd leave alone the games that have more popularity.

I think a good compromise would be a page that shows all the topics from the different boards for a game. So the the separate boards would still exist, but those of us that want them merged would have a way to view them as such.

The "new topic" button on the "merged" board page could have a drop down menu for which board you want the topic created on.
