Cross-Play Unlikely for The Agency

The odds are against PlayStation 3-to-PC cross-platform play for Sony Online Entertainment's upcoming spy MMO, The Agency, CEO John Smedley tells Next-Gen.

"If I was a betting man, I'd bet that we don't allow it," said Smedley of cross-platform play. "You'll still be able to log in with your character on either [PS3 or PC]."

is balancing out the mouse and keyboard setup with the controller, but this shouldnt be a big enough reason to stop them from attempting cross-play.......heres a thought......if you play the agency on the PS3 network you will still have the available option of connecting your mouse and keyboard to your PS3, but if its PS3 to PC make it mandatory to use a Keyboard and mouse on your PS3 to play..problem solved???? anyone else agree????....

Agree with The Joey. Even if they give us the choice to play or not to play with PC player it's quite enough and satisfactory for me.
