UPDATE: Sony responded to Microsoft’ invitation saying that they “would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play”. It’s not a blatant YES but it’s clearly a positive answer.
The days when you had to choose between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will soon be gone. With a bit of luck, you will be able to enjoy games from whichever platform you choose with any friends you want, no matter the console. Microsoft will support cross-platform play between Xbox One, Windows 10 and other networks through Xbox Live.
The news was made public on the official site of Xbox by director Chris Carla who highlighted the fact that “it’s up to game developers to support this feature”, meaning the hatchet of war is buried. Players will now be able to play games they love independently of the platforms they use. Of course, they still have the option of choosing to play with fellow Xbox Live players.
The first game that will allow Xbox One fans and PC players to measure their strengths is Rocket League, Psyonix’s game. All that remains is to convince Sony to join the light side and connect with Microsoft’s gaming console.
