Examiner: "While we're not entirely sure whether this is a surprise or not, today, Larry Hryb (Major Nelson) has confirmed that he's unsure whether or not Xbox 360 users can cross-platform chat with Xbox One users."

this is what i hate about the news of X1, they use the word MayBe a lot which means 50/50

M.Cerny/youshi give a straight answer most of the time

JokesOnYou1020d ago (Edited 1020d ago )

Yeah but Mark Cerny isn't commenting on things like how cross game play with ps vita is going to work is he?...basicly its just standard hardware, ram, specs, and how great sony is talk. Thats fine but whos talking about exactly how the new features are going to work, how exactly is the touchpad being used, what kind of support for ps eye are we going to see at launch, and since they are on record about using the cloud also how and what games specfically use Gaikai/cloud cloud computing, while were at it when exactly and what games/plan for bacwards compatibility? You see dony is kind of silent or offer no details yet they arent being examined with tough questions.....neither has things 100% figured out, lol it could be worst if you remember last gen consoles launch.

Cerny does give a straight answer. Not his fault peeps not askin other questions. ms has been the king of dodge. Everybody knows this an when you defend them it makes you look dishonest or worse not too smart.

An someone has to say this but the reason x1 owners won't be able to talk to 360 owners is cause so many 360 owners will be on the PS4.

No_Limit1019d ago

You do know the new cross-chat system on the Xbox One will be migrating to Skype, right? So why is there a big surprise that it might not be compatible with the X360, which isn't on Skype. Think and research people, before trying to troll.

RM-TatoTiburon1019d ago

well don mattrick said that cross plataform chat will be available for xbox 360 and Xbox One users...

But Don it's not longer at microsoft so we wont know until november

QuickdrawMcgraw1019d ago

Why would MS support cross system chat between the 360 and the 1.MS will act like the 360 doesn't exist.Just like they did with the with the Xbox.

"Yeah but Mark Cerny isn't commenting on things like how cross game play with ps vita is going to work is he?."

why should he even bother explaining that when it's already up and running with certain games between PS3 and Vita? The Vita was design with the PS4 in mind, so yeah...cross play will work even more flawlessly than the PS3.

@QuickDrawMcgraw

No, there's a difference this gen, the 360 was actually a BIG SUCESS(80 Mill sold),where as the og-xbox wasnt near(25 mill). Why would they support a froggoten console?

Fuck, the only reason sony showed support for the ps2 was beacuse it sold over 150 mill units And was still selling, seems logical doesn't it

nukeitall1019d ago

@badz149 :

What about PS3 and PS4 chatting togheter?

That said this is a non-issue, as Don Mattrick already said this is going to work:

http://www.polygon.com/2013...

This is the sort of thing planned ahead and designed for, tested and planned release. So no worries.

@QuickdrawMcgraw & Urusernamesucks:

What happened to PSP Go support again?

All the promise of day and date release when it was still sold wasn't upheld, and then it's life was cut short!

andrewsqual1019d ago

@JokesOnYou Sony JUST confirmed that PS3 headsets will work on PS4 fool. Something that is useful for us all to know. Gakai isn't out until maybe Summer 2014, why would they focus on that. They have LITERALLY been talking about the console features since February 20th starting with the awesome Share functionality.
Microsoft said businesses businesses can blah blah blah and they get free gold if they sign up to blah blah blah.

QuickdrawMcgraw1019d ago

@Urusernamesucks

Actually what seems logical to me is you just don't abandon 20 some million loyal customers who help put your gaming division on the map.In just a few months we will see if MS uses the same M O.

badz1491019d ago

@nuketail

what about the PSP GO support? ermmm... you can still play it with no problem! it just stop production but FW updates are still coming and more PSP games are available on PSN now then ever before. so...what's the problem? or you're just being ignorant?

kupomogli1019d ago

@badz149

Considering the fact that PSP Go is just a different version of the PSP, one that didn't sell well, Sony has still allowed for PSP and PSP Go support.

There aren't many games that are released any longer, but there are still games being released, with every one of them being released digitally since the launch of the Go, some(although this has been quite awhile since) having a physical version as well.

As long as the PSP receives continued support, the Go is also receiving support. The Go not being sold any longer doesn't change that.

Considering the XBOne, PS4, and PC all use Skype, I'm wondering if cross-platform chat is possible?

kreate1019d ago (Edited 1019d ago )

Interesting point.
Psp and ps vita have Skype too.

MazzingerZ1019d ago

Maybe I will get an X1, maybe if they drop the price or maybe if it removes the paywall or maybe if I get free games everymonth or maybe only if they do all that or maybe not...not sure

Hm. That's something I never thought of. I wonder if you run your 360 through the xbone, if them you could. Guess time will tell.

TekoIie1019d ago

You can plug your xbox 360 into your Xbox One... But of course with MS being MS we have no idea why we should.

Damn you Microsoft PR!!!!

iamlegend99991020d ago

That would be a cool feature if they did. Because i know a lot of people are not switching right away. So i might be alone on xbox one. But what the hell. I still got ps4.

AzureskyZ1020d ago

is this really news worthy?

admiralvic1020d ago

Of course it is. I pretty much assumed they would be able to do that much, since everything goes through what I can only assume is the same network. If someone from M$ isn't 100% certain the feature will work, then it's certainly something to question / think about.

AzureskyZ1020d ago

I really dont think its all that important-- more than likely with the exception of few games-- i dont think there will even be much crossplay between the 2 platforms-- is cross chatting really so important between two different platforms? Also Major Nelson doesnt know shit to begin with is it really fair to judge him for not knowing?
Until MS says something official its probably best to leave assumption out the door.

mac_sparrow1019d ago

"is cross chatting really so important between two different platforms? "

Personally i don't care for cross-game chat, if I'm playing single player i don't want to talk to you and if I'm playing multiplayer we'll talk if we're in the same game.

But given how much of a feature many users have made this out to be, I find it interesting that the possibility of being able to chat to people on your friends list who haven't upgraded yet to be unimportant just a little hypocritical.

HugoDrax1019d ago

Majority of the users on Xbox live I party chat with are all upgrading to the XB1 at launch, along with my family (5x). Also it was confirmed a while back that XB1 and X360 users would be able to cross chat. Link below

AzureskyZ1018d ago

Definitely good news for those who gonna pick up xbone-- the only part i disagree with the statement is majority of xbox live users going to xbone on launch-- you do know that there is 77 or so million xbox 360s and their wont be even close to that number out at launch-- i also think xbox might have stung some people the wrong way after their reveal and e3. Personally the always on or the used game market didnt affect me much as i always buy my games new and have a decent internet-- but until ms takes out the kinect and sale at least the same price as ps4 its a no sale for me, a pity since 360 is my primary system and i really want titan fall-- might have to get the pc version instead.

Electric-flamingo1020d ago (Edited 1020d ago )

It dosent really seem newsworthy.It kind of seems like an unfinished thought.
