Cross platform-play is a both exciting and emerging prospect in the video games industry. However, Nintendo Feed's Scott Everly asks the question; Would Cross-Platform Play be as Awesome as I think it Would?
Been hoping for something like this. I don't see it happening though. The big three won't cooperate with each other that's for sure.
It's MS that won't allow it. Sony will, I know it's a nintendo site but doubt they up for it too. I would love this with something like Destiny. I have said several times I wish Activision would just strong-arm them into allowing it. They have the power with COD to make it happen for us gamers. All the extra money changing hands for deals makes then look the other way though.
Yeah, Sony allows it, PC players able to play with PS4 players, I think that's seriously awesome. As for Nintendo, I'm not sure. MS doesn't allow it at all.
Well a Sony/Nintendo cross over would have more an enough fire power to attract the attention of a lot of gamers.
I just don't think it would work, some good points brought up, but the big three would never go for it.
Yes. Since I don't want an Xbox One, I would love to play Destiny from my PS4/PC with my friends that do want an Xbox. Also, multi-plat multiplayer games on Wii U, like COD, would greatly benefit from the established online communities on the other platforms.
Well when it comes to FPS games mouse and keyboard PC players would demolish console players.
Lower the sensitivity so they can't do a instant 180 and boom. Balance. A sluggish low sensitivity shooter like killzone for example wouldn't benefit from a mouse too much
Why would pc gamers give up a better aspect of a game to please the console players.Killzone is a terrible example because that game isn't multiplat...
1st This would also spark a revolution in controller design. Because people playing against each other on different designs would really beg the question, "What system or controller is best to play-on?” Since there would be no boundaries people will have a better compare and contrast research methods. (Does the “X” button being there slow-down a Top-Tier Players capability?) With how competitive COD/ Fighting Games can get you may even have Top Tournament Players up for endorsements- Like people do Nike or Puma. Second Party and designer controllers would even take-off in the market place. 2nd It would be hilarious, (As long as people didn't take it too far) All of the Platform specific trash talk would be funny.
I agree, esp with your second point. it would be a lot of fun.
The research for FPS has already been done,Mouse And keyboard.
I agree with you on that, But my point would be that people would put more resources into designing the BEST set-up. I was basing this on things like Nike and Reeboks shoes and athletic gear that spend millions and billions to provide an edge (or a something that looks cool). Even Mouse and Keyboard set-ups may see radical changes.
