Cross-play is literally a deciding factor in if i get Samurai Shodown or not on PC or Switch

The power rangers budget title can somehow afford to have cross play in it.
Yet a game from a big name company like SNK cant.
Cross play in fighting games should be a priority considering the already only attract a niche audience.
Yet people seam to care more about dumb bullshit like How naked the characters are or something similar.
Why are people not raising a bigger stink over cross-play.
Like what if we all tweeted to SNK that we wont cross-play in samsho?
Wold that make any difference.
Bad enough that i am forced to wait several months for a PC port but if it lacks cross play who is to say it will even have an online population by the time it releases.
I don’t buy fighting games for the single player.
