PlayStation "happy to have the conversation" about cross-network play

Sony has responded to Microsoft's offer of cross-network play by saying that it has been supporting this feature since 2002.

“PlayStation has been supporting cross-platform play between PC on several software titles starting with Final Fantasy 11 on PS2 and PC back in 2002,” responded the company, adding, “We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play.”

Microsoft didn't mention PlayStation specifically when announcing cross-network play, instead referring to “other console [networks],” but hopefully it will all work out.

Would you like to see cross-network play between PlayStation and Xbox?

This sounds like good news. Hopefully will stop all this dlc exclusivity etc too. The only ones to lose out from things like that are the gamers.

wow, I never thought that I would read or hear about that subject even being contemplated by either Microsoft or Sony. It would surely only lead to even greater gaming for everyone, on all levels. Just the boost gaming needs right now. Happy days.

I think it'd be a great idea if Sony and Microsoft were able to do this cross-platform together. It could quell the whole "Console War" thing a bit and clear up some negativity between fans and also allow a greater build of the gaming community. As tolu89 wrote above, the idea of perhaps clearing DLC exclusivity would also be a major plus.

The problem we have then is Sony's touchpad becomes just a button (as the game will have to be identical on both platforms) - also in regards to performance, the PS4 clearly out performs the Xbox in terms of framerates and resolutions the games present, so will the PS4 versions have to be nerfed to match the Xbox one or will they run okay with different specs like PC's do?

If this happen would be great, what about integrated friends list and party chart regardless of the console.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
