Sony Responds to Microsoft Opening Xbox Live’s Borders to Other Gaming Networks

Microsoft recently announced their plans to invite the apocalypse, rather, to allow developers to support cross-network play for their games across PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Fans were curious how Sony would respond to their main competitor finally opening their online borders, and they’ve now issued an official statement (via Gamespot) on the matter, if not indirectly:

“PlayStation has been supporting cross-platform play between PC on several software titles starting with Final Fantasy 11 on PS2 and PC back in 2002,” reads the statement from Sony.

“We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play.”

While this is a response to the question of whether Sony would be interested in working with Microsoft, it doesn’t actually acknowledge Microsoft at all. We’re taking it as is, and hopefully a sign of a coming future where gamers on all platforms can play together.

(Editor’s Note: Except Nintendo consoles, sorry Nintendo fans)
