'We've done our bit.'

15 Ways to Enhance Your Experience on PS4 and Xbox One

Microsoft recently made an exciting announcement when they confirmed that they would finally be lifting the decade plus long lockdown on their Xbox Live network, opening it up so that it could interact with other networks and services, adding the potential from cross network and cross platform play, including, yes, cross platform play with PS4. And on their part, Microsoft say they have done their bit, and they are now ready- the onus is on game developers, and on Sony, going forward.

“As a platform we don’t force developers to release at any point–it’ll be when the developers are ready,” ID@Xbox Europe boss Agostino Simonetta told Eurogamer. “W’re ready. Rocket League is the first game–and it is a heavily network-orientated game.

“Any title that wants to update their game to include cross-network play, any title that wants to launch soon and take advantage of that, we are ready.”

Simonetta seemed pretty adamant on that front, because when asked specifically about whether there had been any news from the Sony front on linking Xbox Live and PSN together, he repeated, “We can only say: we’re ready. We’ve done our bit and we welcome anyone who wants to take part.”

To be fair to Simonetta, he is not wrong- he can only speak for Microsoft, and it does seem like Microsoft have done their bit in this regard. Sony- the ball is in your court now.
