The key word your missing is "won't".

They tried it before (beta testing) with Halo and the console folks kept getting slaughtered in multiplayer. No offense to console FPS gamers (I'm pretty decent myself on consoles), but the shooter was born on the PC.

Why doesn't Microsoft have good relations with PC? It's weird, to think they'd have a much stronger relationship with PC's. And here is Sony coming out with games that are cross platform or games that effect each other from different platforms like Dust 514 and EVE online

GTO of here... most of their games find their way to PC... they have two franchises that don't have every game on the PC... damned if they do and damned if they don't...

Because no self-respecting PC gamers is going to pay for a Live membership to play a multi-player shooter PC game online, pure and simple. Developers won't dare make it a Live-only game, because then it just wouldn't sell. Us PC shooters would just play BF4 or CoD (really) then buy a subscription on top of paying for the game just to play Titanfall.

pretty much this.

M$ tried to push Live on pc once. It was pretty hilarious watching it crash and burn.

MS thought it would be easy too. Once they found out it wasn't they gave up.

GFWL (not to be confused with Xbox LIVE) was also a horrible service that was tied to savegame files. Meaning you had no choice but to deal with Xbox LIVE's retarded cousin.

Seriously of all the services (Origin, Uplay, Steam...) GFWL was by far the worst.

that would be a mistake, unless they allowed mouse and keyboard for the xbox one as an input method for this game

Cross platform play with shooters specifically probably won't work for the time being as a result

Allow mouse and keyboard, allow cross platform and you pretty much force people, who may not want to, use the mouse keyboard. Allowing mouse and keyboard on console would ruin the console experience.

MS already tried doing a cross platform game and it was a disaster.

Even mediocre mouse players were wiping the floor with the best controller players.

Frist, there was actually a game that made it to consumers that implemented this. Shadowrun for the 360 and pc but the same outcome came out of that as well.

All consoles need to do is allow a mouse and a keyboard as game input for those games. It's not like you have to force it on individuals, just let them have the option of buying a mouse and keyboard. Also you have to allow cross platform gaming along with the option of sticking to a players own console online. Two things that should be very simple to make this model work and become gold.

How is simple option to search for rooms only on a single platform different then searching for a deathmatch or hardcore server? It's just a value in the server information. If they can obtain cross platform gaming in the first place then something like that should be freaking cake.

Also it's not like developers have to go out of their way to support mouse and keyboard controlls since its already in the game on the PC version...I know they already have mouse and keyboard adapters for the 360/ps3 that allow people to game with them, although I have no idea how well they work. Still it shows how easy they are to be supported. So why the hell have they yet to have any official implementation into consoles (for gaming)???

I am lucky enough to have a gaming pc and most of my irl gaming friends don't. I have been waiting and waiting for a good cross platform game because of this reason. The only excuses I have seen that say this is impossible are piss poor ones at best.

This has more to do with the servers then the actual game

Can't wait for the PS4 version.
