Will we see a day when xbox and PS3 gamers can do battle in the online world?
there are several games that had the potential to allow for cross platform play. It wouldnt surprise me if 3rd party devs have toyed with this for some time. The decision to make it happen rests on the powers that be. MS being one of them should be more receptive to the idea.
We had that day 1.Final Fantasy 11 didn't separate players based on the platform they choose.
I remember the day they did 18 hour maintenance to get prepared for the 360 version and I was on both the PC and PS2 versions at the time. I hope another MMO does the same thing, some of the cool cats I played with were on the 360
Can't now from what I understand,Live changed their policy it now will not allow it for some BS reason from what I understand.
microsoft had said they did it so gamers would give more credibility to their online platform, theyve said that it wont happen again.
would be nice! I don't get why we don't have this option? i understand some of the reasons but it still makes no sense. It would making playing online so much better will all the extra players
To me it's just another group of people that I'll be owning.
Except Microsoft would never allow a Sony platform connect to them.
eff that. i dont wana play with people that have no mics
Regarding article: Microsoft won't allow this to happen. They are not supportive of the games industry as a whole - only what they control. And @Chris GTRR1 - People with no mics are better than 8-16 year old American brats screaming obscenities and constantly asking what prestige level you are - even if your not even playing COD. Thats why 100% of games have a mute button and not a 'random screaming kid' noise button.
Ignore the green troll
If this were to happen in the future i can only see it as a big flame war everyone will be like my consoles better and out of every 1,000 1 person will say can't we all just get along lol.
I don't think Ms would be for it but it would nice if any steam games would allow it with ps3.
Ooh how i've waited for this day.... *rubs hands menecingly*
EA should do the same with their games.
*ahem* cross platform gaming has been around for years now. albeit not as pronounced and overly hyped as valve's own portal 2. my point still stands though
You could play with quake3 with dreamcast owners. Used to be so easy beating someone with a gamepad,lol. Mouse,kb vs gamepad is no competition.
PC vs PS3 in counter strike would be fun for some..
Please NO! We have to endure enough "Skit" from the eXBox fanboys on the internet, who want to hear them Bitching when the babies get nailed by the quality of a PS3?
