What Does Sony Have To Say To Microsoft’s Cross-Network Invite?

As we reported earlier, Microsoft proposed the idea of a cross-network plan, which would allow users to play the same games across different networks.

Imagine Xbox Live players having the ability to play Fallout 4 or The Witcher 3 with players on the PlayStation Network.

Well, Sony responded to Microsoft’s cross-network public invite. Their response suggests that  they remain…

…open-minded about cross-console play but stopped short of discussing a deal with Xbox Live [emphasis added].

“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,” reads the statement from the corporation [emphasis added].

“We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play.” [emphasis added]

Sony’s response was to a direct question about whether it would be interested in working with Microsoft.

It is unclear how to read into Sony’s decision to avoid mentioning other console platform holders in its statement, whether that means it is still evaluating its options or is outright against such plans. GameSpot has contacted the corporation for further clarification.

Sony is the market leader, so it may not be to their benefit to work out a cross-network arrangement. But, many gamers remain hopeful. Read the original source article over on Gamespot.
