Don’t be such a downer, Shu.
President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco that accomplishing cross-network play might be a much more difficult task than originally thought when Microsoft made the proposition earlier in the week.
“Because PC is an open platform, it’s much more straightforward. Connecting two different closed networks is much more complicated, so we have to work with developers and publishers to understand what it is they are trying to accomplish. We also have to look at the technical aspect – and the technical aspect could be the easiest. We also have to look at policy issues and business issues as well,” Yoshida explained.
As with any business, legal issues and the capabilities of who owns the property are of utmost precedence, beyond our wild desires.
