One day will all platforms come as one and play?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This i know is not possible YET. However, any of you ever wondered if the day will come where online will consist of players of all platforms. PC, PS3, XBox etc... You would be playing a game such as Battlefield/COD and the other players could be on a completely different platform to you. You on PC, and then another guy on say, PS3 shooting at you. Where the online community will be a whole rather than separate? Just thought it would be an interesting topic.

Microsoft tested a multiplatform game, Shadowrun.

It was an abysmal failure.

Mainly due to PC players with our superior mouse and keyboard dominating the controller users.

Consoles offer a much more even playground for online play, with mostly standardized hardware, far less cheating, modding, hacking, lag switching, etc.

So... MAYBE among console users. But the PC would never be incorporated, it would be a nightmare for developers and gamers alike, and would ruin the spirit of competition for the most part.

A lot of people on PC have a few hundred bucks into their mouse AND keyboard, separately. Doesn't make for very fair play when a lot of us are bound to be playing on a square Compaq keyboard and some old generic re-branded Logitech optical mouse. LOL
