Yesterday Microsoft broke the internet with the announcement that, not only would they natively support Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, but that the invitation was also open to “other consoles and PC networks.” Essentially throwing the ball at Sony’s feet and saying “Your move”.
Cross-network play is something gamers have dreamed about since the beginning of online gaming, and so the world waited eagerly for word from Sony. And now we have it.
According to an article from Gamespot Sony were asked directly if they would be interested in working with Microsoft and, in a move that will crush the dreams of many a gamer, completely avoided the question.
“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 … We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play.”
While it’s not admittedly a straight no, it’s not a straight yes either. Maybe we can expect more news down the line? I don’t know. All I know is all eyes are still on Sony for a straight answer.
