Microsoft has announced its support for Cross-Network Play, allowing Xbox owners to play games with anyone on PC or PlayStation. First, the caveats – this…
Usually you buy your console based on what your friends already have. Until now that was the only way you could be sure you would enjoy the game experience with them.
Microsoft wants to offer a promising alternative. Its Cross-Network Play technology offers players from every network and platform a unified multiplayer, multiplatform experience.
That means that you would be able to play FIFA 16 (not really right now) with your friends wether they play on the Xbox One, the PS4 or a PC with Windows.
The problem, of course, is that Sony won’t have much interest in this. They’ve got the upper hand currently, so it’s not that interesting for the winning platform to join the one(s) who are behind.
Nice try from Microsoft, though.
