Microsoft and Sony Still Discussing Cross-play Dylan Duarte August 24, 2017 News Imagine there’s no consoles It isn’t hard to do Cross-play has been a dream among gamers for years. We got a little taste of it with Shadowrun, way back in 2007. Remember Shadowrun? Of course you don’t. Shadowrun was a shooter and the first game to let Xbox 360 players mingle with PC players in the multiplayer arena. In recent years, Microsoft cross-platform play has become more common, but what gamers have really been pining for, pining for years, is cross-console play. Consoles are expensive. Not everyone can afford to own the all the current-gen has to offer, let alone copies of the same game for every system. Certain friends are going to left in the dark, but hopefully not for long, as Xbox’s head of marketing, Aaron Greenberg, confirmed at Gamescom 2017 that Microsoft is still in talks with Sony about possible crossplay. Sony got cold feet with Microsoft when they first started branching out on their crossplay saga, but Microsoft clearly isn’t giving up. The fact that the talks are still happening a couple months after Sony shut them down the first time at least seems to suggest that Sony is open to something. Hopefully they just some conditions that need to be met and then we’re off to the races. Share This With The World!
