    PC and Xbox, cross platform?

    Hey there! I have been following this game closely and I know that Defiance works cross platform. So a PC player can play with xbox 360 and playstation 3 players at the same time. The problem is that Microsoft will not allow the xbox 360 players to play in the same game as playstation players. So since Xbox and Windows are both Microsoft products, will this cross platform play be allowed between Xbox 360 and PC? I am curious because I have a few friends that own xboxs and I would love to play with them. Has anyone heard anything on whether xbox and PC will still be cross platform?
    Thanks!

    As far as we know they all operate together. From a business stance, it seems fiscal to allow such a thing to take place, limiting a gaming community would only stagnate more purchases and thus get them less money.

    Yea, that's what I thought until last week, when I read this http://massively.joystiq.com/2012/05...-ps3-but-cant/ =(

    "Because we can't guarantee this level of quality, or control the player experience on other consoles or gaming networks, we currently do not open our network to games that allow this cross-over capability." - Sounds like Microsoft wants things run their way. I doubt that Trion would go announcing that the game would be on all three consoles without first approaching these companies and getting permission.

    Maybe Xbox will have to have a seperate world if this is the case. Is this even possible?

    From what was said at E3 on 6/4/2012, each platform pc/ps3/360 will have it's own set of servers and be separate from the others.

    This could possibly be a huge blessing to all 3 communities. Not so much Xbox to PS3 but PC to console. We are just to different in the gaming world to mingle well i think.

    It worked fine on FFXI and still does, that game was all regions of the world, PC, 360, and PS2 all on same servers, all playing together.

    Will there be chat in-game? - How is that going to work? PS3 and Xbox wont have keyboards, most probably. PS3 players can't talk outside of games.. Will there be vent in-game or will there be separate chat features for all platforms?
