Sony stops short of committing to Xbox One cross-platform play

Sony's eyes say "Maybe," but their lawyers say "We'll get back to you"

Microsoft recently opened the door to enabling Xbox One and PS4 gamers to pit their skills against each other online, but it would appear that Sony's not quite willing to walk through just yet. That said, the company's not slamming doors in anyone's face either.

In a statement issued to GameSpot, the company wrote:

"PlayStation has been supporting cross-platform play between PC on several software titles starting with Final Fantasy 11 on PS2 and PC back in 2002.

"We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play."

Like Microsoft, Sony stopped short of mentioning the competition's name directly, only adding more delectable tension to gaming's hottest "will they/won't they" relationship.
