Sony Has Responded To Microsoft’s Invite To Let Xbox And PlayStation Gamers Play Together
| Last updated
Earlier this week, Microsoft announced they would allow Xbox players to compete against PS4 and PC players online, in what would be a huge cross-platform feature.
It was a huge development, albeit a completely one-sided one.
Microsoft said that Sony would have to agree to the move before it ever became a reality.
Well, now they have. Sort of.
"PlayStation has been supporting cross-platform play between PC on several software titles starting with Final Fantasy 11 on PS2 and PC back in 2002," notes a statement from Sony to GameSpot. "We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play."
Ok, so they don't directly address if they'd be open to letting Xbox One vs. PS4 happen. But at least the firm will listen to developers who are interested in cross-network play.
They could have remained completely tight-lipped on the subject if they had wanted to.
With E3 not too far on the horizon maybe there will be a HUGE development that will mean the PS4 vs Xbox dream can finally become a reality.
