GS News Update: Microsoft Wants PS4 and Xbox One to Connect On...
Microsoft wants PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to connect online!

In addition to cross-platform play between Xbox One and Windows 10 games that use Xbox Live, Microsoft is enabling game developers to support cross-network play as well. So players on Xbox One can play on different online multiplayer networks including PS4 and PC. Microsoft did go on to clarify that is is up to game developers to support this feature. For Xbox Live gamers, they will have the option of choosing to play only with other Xbox Live players. Rocket League is one of the first games to take advantage of this new capability. In one of my past previous blog post, I pointed out that I was upset this console generation didn't offer cross-platform online play for the same games. Now it seems the reality of PS4, Xbox One and PC players playing the same game together might finally happen. Also, Microsoft announced that MonoGame, which is a cross-platform open-source implementation of the XNA 4.0 dev kit is coming soon to Xbox One. See more information by visiting my blog post here.
