Sony has released a statement for Microsoft’s invite to join certain game networks or “cross-play”, on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On Monday Microsoft did a surprising move and announced they will connect certain games on the Xbox One, Windows 10, and other  “online multiplayer networks”, also inviting Sony to join in. This would allow a lot of gamers from around the world to play with more people, and their friends, on some of their games.
Sony responded to GameSpot today with this to say.
“PlayStation has been supporting cross-platform play between PC on several software titles starting with Final Fantasy 11 on PS2 and PC back in 2002,” says the statement from Sony. “We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play.”
It seems that Sony will be discussing plans to what the best decisions to make. Like which games to make into cross-play. And if they really do want to make deals with Microsoft.
Microsoft have already said that soon Rocket League will be connected both to the Xbox One and PC, so players can face off each other. Microsoft’s indie developer director Chris Charla has said that Microsoft is talking to multiple developers about this cross-platform feature saying this.
“In addition to natively supporting cross-platform play between Xbox One and Windows 10 games that use Xbox Live, we’re enabling developers to support cross-network play as well. This means players on Xbox One and Windows 10 using Xbox Live will be able to play with players on different online multiplayer networks–including other consoles and PC networks.”
Wither you like it or not the gaming world is being connected more and more everyday.
