Xbox chief wants Sony to explain its cross-platform play stance

Xbox chief wants Sony to explain its cross-platform play stance

Three out of four of these new bundles come with a free game out of the box, while the remaining one highlights the company's Netflix-like game subscription service, called Xbox Game Pass.

Looking at the bigger picture, enabling cross-platform interaction between multiple systems will be helping the entire gaming community, according to his team at Microsoft. That announcement turned heads because it was unprecedented. So we're putting Minecraft out there as one of the biggest games on any platform and allowing people to play together regardless of what device they bought.

Among the two aforementioned companies, Nintendo was reportedly interested and willing to talk with Microsoft regarding a cross-platform interaction between their respective users.

As you surely know, being an avid Gamereactor reader and all, the Xbox One is capable of playing a whole lot of Xbox 360 games thanks to the backwards compatibility, and the original Xbox is about to be added as well. "With Minecraft on PlayStation, we have to be one of the biggest games on their platform in terms of sales and gameplay", he explained.

"They've been great supporters and we continue to collaborate with them".

Apple May Drop Touch ID in the Next iPhone
In addition, as Apple's products are known to do, Face ID could shift the entire industry toward facial recognition as a standard. However, the battery of the iPhone 8 supports the Qi wireless charging standard, including fast charging.

"I know the games that are coming for the original Xbox but I don't think we've announced them all. They should talk about what their view is..."

"Xbox One S will be the market leader for us".

While he may not be clear on what is preventing Sony from supporting the feature, Spencer says that he can't understand why anyone would be against a move that is clearly in the best interests of gamers and developers. Of course, things could always change, but the current status of their relationship makes Spencer think that Sony might never allow cross-play at all. "That's a reason they go buy my console", he said. Therefore, this kind of openness keeps multiplayer experiences rich, and they make games more inclusive and communal experiences. At E3, Microsoft and Nintendo announced a partnership for Minecraft cross-play between Xbox and Nintendo Switch, but Sony has held out.

Do you think Sony should relent and allow cross-play between PS4 and Xbox One?
