What are some cross platform games?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was reading an article about halo 2 and live for windows (cross platform with xbox 360 and windows vista) and I got to thinking about what other games are cross platform. I know a few that come to mind. Quake 3 is a big one. I know that I've had it where I could play on my dreamcast against someone on my pc and against someone else on my xbox. Doom also I believe is cross platform. I know that really none of these were ever meant to be crossplatform it just happened that way through porting. (and in the dreamcast/quake3 case custom dc maps). What other games though?

*edit: checked wikipedia I guess q3 dreamcast was meant to be cross platform.

Dreamcast
Quake III Arena was released for the Sega Dreamcast in 2000 and featured 4 player online play versus Dreamcast and PC gamers. It is often considered one of the best PC to console ports of its time due to its smooth frame rate and online play. Before Activision could release the "official" Dreamcast Map Pack, a "hacked" copy of all the Dreamcast maps was released. This map pack included the maps specially created for Dreamcast split-screen play, which were never meant to be released. Once the "official" map pack was released, the other map pack became harder to find[citation needed]. PC Players were required to downgrade their installations to point release 1.16n to play alongside Dreamcast players, but the maps would work on the final 1.32 point release

Do you mean as far as being able to play someone on another system? So far besides the couple you mentioned I think only Shadowrun lets you do that.

And I'm 98% sure that Halo 2 won't let you do that.

Yes, halo 2 will be cross-platform saxahonker. therefore, your 2% of 100% wins. lol

Other than halo 2... dont think any other games will be cross platform.

Will or is now? The Games for Windows site says that as far as playing between console and computer you have Shadowrun and later in the year, the MEGAHIT Uno! Just says Halo 2 between two computers.

Halo 2 is supposedly suppose to in the future be crossplatform. For now I believe its just pc vs pc.

Yes I mean being able to play each other over different entertainment systems. Like the example above someone on Dreamcast Q3 playing someone on Xbox Q3 and someone on PC Q3. Either all online or on lan.
