Microsoft recently announced that Xbox Live will now support cross-platform play. While Xbox One and the PlayStation4 are very similar gaming systems, one point of differentiation has always been that Xbox gamers can only play with other Xbox and PC users. Now the system will include a cross-platform multiplayer mode that works with other operating systems.
According to Microsoft, Xbox Live will now allow for cross-platform play. The first game that will work with other consoles will be 'Rocket League.' As a result, both Xbox users and Playstation users will be able to compete against one another through cross-platform multiplayer modes.
With Xbox One falling behind the PlayStation4 in terms of sales, the new move could convince late adopters to choose Microsoft products.
