( btw , the first to make that cross platform FPS game a reality , CoD or BF4 ... this is gonna be MASSIVE!!!!!! )
Cross platform fps multiplayer has been done before in the past, but never really caught on. PC gamers pretty much always dominated the console ones, which required huge amounts of auto-aim to be given to console players to be "competitive". Ended up pretty unbalanced with both sides getting cheap kills on each other that simply weren't possible on the other platform.
As for planetside itself, it actually might be a hardware issue. Planetside is a very demanding game for even beastly PCs. For a PS4 to run it with any kind of decent frame rates, they're probably going to have to use a MUCH lower draw distance which would allow PC gamers to kill PS4 games before they even get close enough to render, and possibly lower server population counts, which would make the servers directly incompatible.
THAT SAID, it would be pretty fun to slap around a bunch of nublet NC luddites on their playstations as part of the glorious PC gaming Vanu master race Edited by Zero4549 - 6/15/13 at 2:58am
