Microsoft letting Xbox One games connect with PC and other console networks

Over on Xbox Wire, Chris Charla, Director of ID@Xbox has posted an open letter announcing that Mircosoft are to allow Cross Network play, which means we could be going up against our Playstation 4 friends.

Of course, it’s up to game developers to support this feature, and Xbox Live players will always have the option of choosing to play only with other Xbox Live players. We’re thrilled to confirm that Psyonix’s Rocket League will be one of the first games to take advantage of this new capability by enabling cross-network play between Xbox One and PC players, with an open invitation for other networks to participate as well.

At the moment nobody has taken up the offer, but what games are you hoping will make the move to make their games universal?

It also seems like Minecraft could be te first game to truly work across all networks. Despite all this could Sony put a spanner in the works by not allowing such connections? Only time will tell.
