Microsoft Is Actually Talking To Sony To Make Cross-Platform Play Happen

Games With Gold September 2017

Microsoft kicked off the pre-order for the Xbox One X Project Scorpio on Sunday. Speaking with Eurogamer in June, Sony's Jim Ryan suggested that, in the case of Minecraft, Sony was wary to expose that game's young players to "external influences we have no ability to manage or look after".

Reports are suggesting that the Minecraft themed controllers for Xbox One consoles will be available on September 5, 2017 while the console bundle will hit the stores on October 3, 2017.

There's no word yet when or if this technology will be used when the Xbox One X launches, but it sounds like Microsoft is thinking about the future - if a game like Forza 7 is touching three figure file sizes at launch that's only going to increase from there. Mike Ybarra in a recent interview with our friend at Eurogamer answered these questions in detail.

If Sony and Microsoft did both allow cross-play across both platforms, the line between who'd need to moderate or be responsible for in-game interactions or breaches of the terms of service.

Tom Philipps: Are your hands tied?

"That's nothing new for us, in terms of working with developers and publishers to allow cross-platform play between PC and PS4". Perhaps Sony wants someone else to pay for the work required to get its network talking to Microsoft's?

The hardware components of the Xbox One X are expensive, and margins are likely razor thin at the $499.99 retail price Microsoft is charging for the new Xbox. I can't comment on any limitations they might have. Of course if the Xbox One X is the first Xbox you own, you'll have to download all the updates like normal. Some of them are absolutely astounding.

Key specifications of the Xbox One X include 8GB flash memory, 12GB GDDR5, 1TB HDD, 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc drive, HDMI 2.0b, AMD FreeSync, DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital 5.1, TrueHD with Atmos, Bluetooth, Dual band Wi-fi and IR Blaster.
