While Xbox One has caught up with PlayStation 4 in many respects, they were still lagging behind when it came to cross-platform compatibility. Up until now, you could only play with other Xbox and PC gamers. But that has finally changed!
Microsoft has announced that developers for new games will finally be able to create multiplayer experiences which connect players on Xbox One with those on PlayStation 4. That means we could be seeing this new feature in the next Call of Duty and FIFA games.
This decision makes a lot of sense considering that Microsoft continues to lag behind Sony in terms of sales. A lot of players who know people with PS4 systems may be thinking about joining them. Now they can still buy an Xbox One and play with their friends, even if those friends are on PlayStation.
