Sony Responds to Cross Console Play Offer by Microsoft, They’re Open Minded

Cross-Platform Play PSN Xbox Live

The divide between PlayStation Network and Xbox Live is decades old, and the PS4 vs Xbox One war gave new hype to it. However, it looks like tides are changing since Microsoft, the actual player here who has been avoiding meddling with the others, has invited Sony Computer Entertainment and others for a cross console play strategy.

The good news is, Sony has also responded to their invitation of merging the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live to allow their respective users to play the same games online.

Is Cross Console Play The Future?

So from the statement that Sony Computer Entertainment has issued, it appears as though they are clearly open minded about cooking up something like this, but for some reason they would not explicitly say yes to having a partnership with Microsoft for that.

It isn’t like they don’t want to partner with Microsoft specifically for cross console play, because after all they couldn’t just jump and say yes – they are archrivals after all. Any how, here’s what the company said:

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.

So yes, Sony is not doing anything new here, they have always been open about it and so have many developers for that matter. It was actually Microsoft that was restricting this in the past.

Now that they are willing to give cross console play a chance, maybe we will start seeing more games come together on Xbox One and PS4 without the segregation between the PlayStation Network and the Xbox Live.

Thanks, GameSpot.
