Completely Random but does anyone here remember shadow run. That game was for 360 and PC and allowed cross platform play as well as chat. Until some update and we couldnt talk to pc players. So it is possible and a lot of fun.
Not interested. Never will be. Wasn't interested in the first one either.
Maybe FF14 has gotten better since launch. Still not interested.
Forbidding PC-Console cross compatibility is a good thing. First of all, those two communities just don't like each other and you're inviting antagonism between the two. Second, you can never really design something that's perfect for keyboards and controllers, especially not an MMO. Either the controller has an advantage or the keyboard does; the PC gamer will criticize the game for being to simple or the console player will say it's too clunky. And we know this because MS tried the same gimmick five years ago and it was a massive failure.
Oh, and there's the fact that, if I was really inclined, I could download FF14, Planetside 2, and DCUO all right now and all for free for my PC. And I actually do have PS2 installed and I'll probably fire it up again in the fall to pick off all the PS4 users; low-hanging fruit and all that.
And ESO looks better and will be on both systems and PC. --- Sychotic Quote for the Whenever: "Don't think I'll go easy on you just because you're a dog."
But we all know now that nothing is written in stone, policy changes and I think this is another change that would be good for the entire gaming community.
Think about all of the gaming possibilities with FF14 specially with the whole PlayStation and Xbox dynamic it could bring to gameplay. People can literally take the whole console war in game with some ps vs xbox pvp. A guy can dream I guess
Doesn't matter what platforms 14 comes to, it's gonna flop like before.
