Microsoft has announced that ANY game could be played on Xbox against PC & PS4 gamers. Finally allowing for mates with different consoles to play the same games together HOWEVER Sony haven’t announced any integration YET.
The problem will be if Sony decides against the decision, which wouldn’t surprise us considering the long domination Sony had in the latest console battle.
This would give us all better value for money with our existing consoles, a welcome change.
The Microsoft announcement:
“In addition to natively supporting cross-platform play between Xbox One and Windows 10 games that use Xbox Live, we’re enabling developers to support cross-network play as well,” ID@Xbox boss Chris Charla wrote.
“This means players on Xbox One and Windows 10 using Xbox Live will be able to play with players on different online multiplayer networks – including other console and PC networks.
“Of course, it’s up to game developers to support this feature, and Xbox Live players will always have the option of choosing to play only with other Xbox Live players.”
“Expect to see Rocket League cross-network play working on Xbox One and PC later this spring, with information regarding other platforms coming soon,” an update from developer Psyonix has said.
