Sony’s Marketing Head Jim Ryan Believes PS4 and Xbox One Cross-Platform Support Might Eventually Happen
Cross-platform support has always been an in-demand feature that fans want Sony and Microsoft to support on their consoles. CD Projekt RED and Psyonix recently rekindled the flame, and gave players hope.
Both developers hope their games, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game and Rocket League respectively, support cross-platform. In a recent interview with IGN ,Sony’s Global Sales and Marketing Head Jim Ryan clarified that it’s “really down to the developer and publisher of a certain game to come and talk to us and we’re ready to have that conversation.”
“There’s been a lot of noise about this recently. There were certain statements made at E3. But our position has always been that we’re receptive to this. It’s something we’ve been doing for many years now. I think we started with cross-platform initiatives on PS2 in fact, in the early network days of that. There are a number of instances on PS3: when you upgraded from the PS3 to the PS4 generation on GTA V you could take your save cross-platform, we’ve also seen it with Final Fantasy.
“We’re completely open to this. It’s really down to the developer and publisher of a certain game to come and talk to us and we’re ready to have that conversation.”
Will PS4 and Xbox One players ever get to play against each other?
