PlayStation 4 supports cross-platform play with PC

Warframe PC and PS4
The PlayStation 4 is innovating on multiple fronts when it comes to gaming, and especially multiplayer and social features. And now it’s been revealed that the PlayStation 4 also supports cross-platform play with PCs.

According to Warframe developer Digital Extremes, they will be supporting cross-platform play between the PlayStation 4 and PC. Warframe is an MMO which is available on PCs now and will launch later this year on the PS4.

According to an interview with VG247, Digital Extremes’ Dave Cook said that Sony wanted to bring Warframe to the PlayStation 4. But the developer had a few requirements. They wanted to be able to easily update the game every week or two, and they wanted cross platform play with PCs. And Sony agreed.

This means that Warframe PC and PlayStation 4 players will be able to team up and play together, despite being on different platforms.

    And Xbox One can’t do that. Xbox is dead!

        the reasons why Microsoft are not allowing such a feature is irrelevant, the point is they are not implementing something majority users want.

    They’re doing cross-platform play with PC for FFIV too.

    They wanted Xbox platforms to be in on it too, but Microsoft said no (surprise surprise) and that’s why FFIV isn’t coming to Xbox.

    If they can do cross-platform play with near every game with online multiplayer, I think PS4 can beat Microsoft in the online category of things this time around.

    Finally! I’m so excited for this concept! I have been hoping for a console to play multiplayer alongside PC gamers! Just another reason to be excited in Sony!

    This is cool, but I can’t help but feel that PS4 users will be outmatched by PC users who are using a mouse to aim.

      Yeah I was thinking the same thing, PS4 gamers won’t stand a chance agianst PC gamers in FPS games.

      Aren’t there controllers you can plug into PCs so that you can play it like a console game?

        Yeah – the 360 controller, for example. However, most people who play PC shooters use the mouse (because using it to aim is kinda the best thing ever.)

      I believe the PS4 is completely capable of using Keyboard/Mouse to play games now.

    Ps4 is ripping poor Xbone to shreds !!!! What happened Microsoft why are you being such assholes. 360 was an epic console and so was the original but now i think I’m starting to regret my preorder for xbox one. Well done PS4 masters of gaming atleast you are true to your fans

    Finally!!!
    I’ve been hoping for this to show up this generation!
    I primarily play games on PC, but I do have friends who mostly play on consoles and it kinda bums me out that I never get to play with them!
    I’d love to see this come to as many games as possible to where it’ll be surprising in future games if the feature isn’t supported.
    As far as competitive MP is concerned it’d be easy to make control scheme options and allow players to choose to play or not to play with people using alternate control schemes (eg: keyboard/mouse).. or just add support for keyboard/mouse on consoles just like PC usually has support for gamepads on games..

    This was hinted at when the head developer for (I think it was the head developer can’t exactly remember, nor his name) Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn spoke about why it won’t be on the Xbox One.

    I’m actually surprised Microsoft didn’t do this a long time ago, seeing as how they have such a major foothold in the PC world already. Big props to Sony!
