I mean seriously. Think about it. Like what if pc,ps3, and 360 were on the same server. But that will never happen even though it could. I mean think about it. Xbox vs ps3 vs pc? Come on now that would be cool. Plus imo I thi.k problems would be solved faster dont ya think correct me if im wrong or not. Ive played mmos and I have some what of experenced dealing with all the bug. But I dont really care to notices. I just play a game to play it but it would have been much funner to see ps3 users finally see ehos better agenst the 360 and pc ilusers. Vise versa

This was actually the original intent for the game, to be completely cross platform between all three systems. This idea was cut short by BOTH Sony AND Microsoft however. Specifically, Microsoft lobbied that competing with PC players in a shooter game would give them a permanent unfair advantage over console players. I am CERTAIN there are more details than just that, but that was what was reported.

Yes, I think this would have worked much better as one entity instead of three separate beasts. But this is what they had to do, and instead of cancelling their console titles, they decided to go ahead and try it this way, and I give them credit for that.

Thank god it isn't cross platform, XBOX Live and PSN are terrible and would only make us PC Gamers suffer even more than we already have to because of consoles. Please refrain from encouraging such things in the future, best wishes, common sense.

Oh the humanity! Game developers should cater to the small population of PC elitists who paid $1000+ for a gaming rig. Call the police! There's a crime committed here!

I built a ridiculous rig for $1000 and all games including my PC version of Defiance look beautiful and run excellently. So, quit whining and nut up, IDGAF that devs don't cater to me because I realize that we are significantly smaller than console pops.

That's such an outdated stigma. You DO understand children also own computers, and do the exact same things where voice is permitted, yes? Consoles get such a bad rap for all of that, but it's just as prevalent on the PC, and it's always amplified tenfold when the game has no subscription fee.

This Elitism between the consoles and the PC crowd is stupid, and has always been stupid. We are ALL gamers, sharing the same space for a giant MMO would have been ideal, even if you can't get past your blind hatred for one another's platform.

On the bright side, plenty of easy prey for the PC gamers - fighting people stuck using joysticks to aim.

Hardly surprising the console makers don't want their players getting killed by players who have a hardware advantage.

Mobile games are light-years behind PC & Console Gaming. The average audience for an "Ipad Game" is the 7-13 denomination and 65+ denomination respectively. All those "studies" take in a flawed control group to be honest.

Funny thing is those specs are kinda useless. Most people buy stuff like that because they think its going to help them, its all just overkill and epeen. I built my computer and put a lot of $ into it with all the custom work like custom case, custom liquid cooling blocks and setup, but since im not some idiot who wants to buy a bunch of useless stuff so i can run around tryin to brag about it i didn't waste my money and bought what i needed.

Now, i would love to see this game crossplatform. It isn't because i think one system is better than the others, i own all of them. Its more so i can play with friends and family across all of the systems instead of having to choose one or the other.

Thuzza
04-16-2013, 12:26 PM
They can't really cross xbox, ps3 and PC's because of the amount of server crashes that would be caused. PvP would be terribly unbalanced for PC gamers as they don't have controllers like PS3 and Xbox have. They would have to make different servers to actually prevent server crashes, put a cap on each server for how many players it can hold. That's a few reasons why they don't cross consoles/PC's.

Look at from the Dev's and publishers view point. If you were developing a game you would release it on the system were it stands to make the most profit. Correct? It's why everyone gets up and goes to work. The almighty dollar baby! That's why I play primarily on the Xbox. I have more options for my money. I buy one system and it will play 99% of the games that are released with no need for updating hardware. That's why they port your games it's cheaper. I look at PC games and think they are way beyond that of a console but I'm not willing to dump time and money into to have that because I feel the cons outweighs the pros. It's why the gods of WOW sold out to Activison. Money.

Without PC, consoles wouldn't exist.

Without consoles, games don't get enough player base and production values drop.

Won't happen. You will have either kids on 360 getting on people's nerves. Or PC gamers picking fights with the 360 and PS3 users because their computer can play the game at an higher setting..or whatever stupid reason that make PC gamers feel the need to gloat and think they're superior, etc etc..

Just have to say I'd like the cross platform so I could play with friends that don't have the same system I am on...and as for no mouse or keyboard argument....it is invalid...you can use a mouse and keyboard on at least the xbox not so sure about the ps3 tho.. Have fun and enjoy the game...doesn't matter if your on a console or a pc...remember we are trying to play a game...not rule the world

You do know consols players can hack to right? O_o

You get one guy hacking on PS3 but for PC you don't need to know anything other then hitting the DL button to be a hacker.

I heard it wasn't cross platform because Microsoft couldn't "ensure the quality of the online experience." Which I took as "we can't control everything so no because waah." Much like EA won't support the WiiU because Nintendo told EA where to stick it after EA demanded the online service for the WiiU be Origin.

You would have been begging for divides if they had made it cross platform.

I mean seriously. Think about it. Like what if pc,ps3, and 360 were on the same server. But that will never happen even though it could. I mean think about it. Xbox vs ps3 vs pc? Come on now that would be cool. Plus imo I thi.k problems would be solved faster dont ya think correct me if im wrong or not. Ive played mmos and I have some what of experenced dealing with all the bug. But I dont really care to notices. I just play a game to play it but it would have been much funner to see ps3 users finally see ehos better agenst the 360 and pc ilusers. Vise versa

I initially thought this was the case before purchasing the game. A friend and I had a conversation about how well console players can hold their own against PC users and came to the general conclusion that it should be possible. I passed this idea onto the forums where I met a guy who actually claimed to have worked with Microsoft in an attempt to develop a cross platform competitive game.

During their study they had 5 hardcore PC gamers go heads on against 5 hardcore Xbox players. They would have to two groups play against each other, swap sides (PC players on the sticks, Xboxers on the PC), mix up the teams (Some PCers and some Xboxers on PC, the others on sticks). No matter what they did, how they mixed it up, the people playing on PCs dominated.

They eventually had to put such severe handicaps on the PC version of the game that for any self-respecting PC player, it would be obvious and they would not enjoy the game at all. The game was scrapped to say the least.

Here's a repetitive debate I've seen in other game forums where we have a cross platform gaming community. It's always the same thing revolving around hacks/cheats, controllers/keyboards&mouse, and the overall perceived communities on each platform. The only thing we are missing in this thread is the Apple crew, and you donít want that. :o

I play on both PC, and Xbox.
Is it true you hear the random 10yr old every once in a while on Xbox? Yes
Is it true Keyboard&Mouse has better control over console controllers? Yes
Is it true hacks are more prevalent on PC? Yes (speaking in general)

Maybe people are unaware of the direction things are heading . Eventually in the not so distant future (maybe my lifetime even) games will be cross platform as the OP originally eluded to. Consoles can already do some of the more popular things you need a PC for. For example, about 10 years ago I build a HTPC for my main living room. I'm not recording shows (have DRV for that) so when it came time for an upgrade I bought a second Xbox to fill the job. It has a HDMI port/wirelessN/keyboard support/browser/Netflix/YouTube/connects to my NAS where I keep my music, and cost me $149.00(graphics card for the HTPC was more than $149.00).

Why will this happen? Money, plain and simple. Game developers make more money selling games to a wider audience, and the audience grows when you cross platform borders. Gone will be the days when you need to buy platform X in order to play game Y. The closer consoles get to becoming a PC the closer we get to a true cross platform game. Then we can all get in the little boat together, watch the tiny animatronic dolls wave to us, and sing ďitís a small world after allĒ.

Id really like if they combined the EU servers to play with some of our friends from across the pond.

I think this would be awesome.

My boyfriend plays on PC and I play on PS3. I think it would be awesome to be able to play alongside him / group with him and run shtako together.


I do see the other sides as well.. but It would be neat regardless...
