On Monday, Xbox’s Chris Charla revealed the potential of Xbox/PC/PS4 cross-network play via a new feature. However, Charla also noted that making use of the feature would be entirely up to developers and publishers.
Since then, Sony has been bombarded with questions regarding whether or not PlayStation would take advantage of the service. This is what a representative of the publisher had to say, when responding to a GameSpot inquiry:
“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. We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play.”
As you can see, they are totally on board. Seriously, the question was eloquently dodged by touching on everything except what gamers want to hear — a direct answer to a direct question. The takeaway is that while the word “yes” wasn’t specifically thrown around, neither was the response of “no.” Perhaps there is still hope.
The PlayStation brand has been ruling public mind-share for the past few years with no sign of a decline in sight. A move like this could only improve it. Tell us if this is a feature you are looking forward to utilizing.
