"However, a recent interview between Microsoft and AusGamers reveals that Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Studios Phil Spencer is open to the idea of cross platform play between the Xbox One and PCs."
"Spencer pointed to 2007’s Shadowrun, an online FPS that featured cross-platform play between the Xbox 360 and PC. Spencer admits that the cross-platform experiment didn’t go very well, but that he learned a lot from the experience. Those problems aside, Spencer said he’s confident that playing games across different platforms through cloud saves is the future of gaming."
"I think cross-platform play has a future on single-player or co-op games, where you don’t have to take competitive advantage into account."
"Mouse and keyboard controls will always be more accurate than a joystick, and it’s never fun to lose when the other team is on a different playing field."
So what's your take on platform play between the PC and Xbox One System Wars? Personally I think any attempts they make again will fail as the competitive scene and skill level is higher on the PC gaming side. The average PC gamer would yet again stomp on the best consoler gamers. I don't think it would work because of that alone. Microsoft just admitted it in this interview. Just more proof that m/k > controller.
Anyway, what's your take on all this?
