Real Cross Play Titles On The Way.


Sony have been making a big thing of cross play titles (games playable on the PS3, PSP, PS4 and Vita) for awhile now and while Nintendo have dabbled with the idea with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate they’ve yet to buy into the concept in the same way Sony have, however that could be about to change after a brief statement by Ripstone’s creative director and co-founder Phil Gaskell, as he revealed that Ripstone’s forthcoming Pure Chess title would not only support the cross play feature between both Wii U and 3DS versions of the game but might even cross play with PC, mobile and Playstation versions as well. It was a profound claim I’m sure you’ll agree and one many, especially Nintendo fans dismissed out of hand however since Mr. Gaskell’s claims Nintendo themselves have come out and confirmed that this type of  platform cross play may indeed happen.
“We can confirm that cross-platform functionality is possible in certain titles that play on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, as well as other video game systems not made by Nintendo. We are committed to helping developers realise the full potential of their software on Nintendo systems.”
So there you have it, the first ever game usable on both Sony and Nintendo consoles might be on the way and if it is how many other titles could follow in it’s footsteps? The mind boggles.

  1. It’s a shame that only Microsoft are against cross play with all the consoles. Well not a shame, all the good titles there are third party titles.

  2. I’d imagine it’s still some way off but what I’d like to see is when you purchase a title like Retro City Rampage or Fez (I’m using indie titles because the likes of EA will never do this) you can access said titles (and your saves) through whatever other platforms it’s available on and at no extra cost. A little like what Steam did with Portals 2.
