Killer Instinct on PC features cross-platform play and purchases

When Killer Instinct is released on PC, PC owners will be able to take on Xbox One fighters as well as enjoy all of their previously purchased goods.

The story is too old to be commented.

Controllers on both sides right no Kb & M nonsense.

Do people actually use Keyboard and Mouse for a fighting game?

That seems like it would terrible.

spartanlemur1040d ago

Lol you should be hoping PC gamers *do* use keyboard and mouse, as it is awful for controlling fighting games.

The strength of K+M is shooting games.

AutoCad1041d ago

YES !! Cross platform.

Another Xbox Exclusive coming to PC Wow

spicelicka1041d ago (Edited 1041d ago )

It's a MS exclusive, they'll do with it what they want. Still a console exclusive.

Tedakin1041d ago

2 years after the fact with crossplay and cross buy. This is a GOOD THING and will keep the game relevant. SF5 is doing the same thing. I already have it on Xbox, so I get it on PC free. That's awesome.

Software_Lover1041d ago (Edited 1040d ago )

And for free if you already own it. The f'n nerve of Microsoft!!!! /s

Edit: at lodossrage

you will not have to re-purchase content.

lodossrage1041d ago

But isn't killer instinct f2p in the first place?

Unless I'm missing the idea of the /s of course

Lol Phil himself is green lighting these games to PC. So anyone that yells "Ill just get it on PC! Aren't hurting anybody here because that's the point.

Yep MS is really trying to to bridge the gap between console and PC. It works out well for both.

Benjammin251041d ago (Edited 1041d ago )

Not for people with a PS4 and PC like me. I have literally no reason to get an Xbox one at the moment. Xbox One is miles behind PS4 sales wise as it is. It's not going to get any easier for them if they keep releasing their "exclusives" on PC.

gangsta_red1041d ago

Well with MS releasing games for PC they will still get customers like you who had no intention of getting a Xbox One.

It's a win/win for them.

They have their Xbox users and users on PC. Either way Live stays alive with gamers.

AngelicIceDiamond1040d ago

Well then there's the secret sauce. Buying KI and Gears on PC only helps MS and their ecosystem with XBL and WIN10 eiter way they get the software revenue and Live usage.

As far as X1 sales is concerned people are still gonna buy X1's ppl love to assume X1 sales will just stop or dramatically decrease because a hand full of Xbox games are on PC.

That's not the case at all. Console gaming is still hotter than PC gaming from a AAA point of view.
