Microsoft Wants PS4 And Xbox One To Connect Online

Microsoft announced today they will support cross platform gaming between Xbox One, Windows 10 and other online multiplayer networks, this move will mean that they will be accommodating for PS4 players.

The announcement was made this morning on xbox.com by Chris Charla who is director of ID at Xbox. He said earlier “it’s up to game developers to support this feature” and noted that players will “always have the option of choosing to play only with other Xbox Live players.”

“In addition to natively supporting cross-platform play between Xbox One and Windows 10 games that use Xbox Live, we’re enabling developers to support cross-network play as well,” Charla explained. “This means players on Xbox One and Windows 10 using Xbox Live will be able to play with players on different online multiplayer networks–including other consoles and PC networks.”

The first game to support cross platform functionality is Rocket League which allows Xbox One and PC to play in match made games together. Microsoft have also extended “an open invitation for other networks to participate as well.”

Rocket League also supports cross platform play between PC and PS4, when the game was initially released one Xbox One it didn’t have this function. As Psyonix said (developer of the game) “The Xbox platform doesn’t allow for cross-play matchmaking between other systems as a general practice across all titles,”
