Trion Worlds Senior Producer Robert Hill, who’s currently working on co-op PS3 and PC MMO shooter Defiance feels that due to the not-so-friendly nature between Microsoft and Sony, developers are unable to do cross-platform multiplayer play across the two HD consoles.

“There will not be cross-platform play,” he told Dealspwn when asked if Defiance will have the same. “We do it right now. You can see all the PS3s and PCs. hey are playing on the same server. Every day, we play Xbox 360, PS3 and PC together. Unfortunately, at launch, Microsoft and Sony aren’t really friendly with each other so they won’t let us do that cross-platform play.”

Well, seeing cross-platform play between the PS3 and PC has been a joy indeed, and seeing it between two consoles would turn out to be even better. Microsoft and Nintendo have had a pretty good relationship in the past, so who knows, maybe we could have cross platform play between the next Xbox and the Wii U. But it’s a pretty long shot.
