Valve And Sony’s Idea Of Cross-Platform Play Similar

Valve has come out singing Sony’s praises on the cross-platform play front, lauding the company for being open, adding that Sony’s idea of the feature aligns in tandem with its own.

“With Sony – and we’ve done it with Portal 2 – they’ve been great to work with on that stuff; they’re really open to that idea. They think of it kind of like we do: we’re gamers, we don’t think ‘platform’,” Portal writer Chet Faliszek told Edge (via CVG).

“Like, I own all the platforms, and I’ll play games on whatever. I just want to play. And they’ve been really helpful that way.”

As for how the feature will work in the upcoming Counter-Strike, Faliszek added: “Xbox has its own community, but PS3, PC and Mac will all be able to play together.

[That’s one] thing about the skill-based matchmaking: if you’re really great with a controller, you’ll be playing with people who are as good with their mouse and keyboard. It doesn’t care about your input device.”
