    You guys remember Shadowrun? I believe it was the first ever cross console game where PC gamers could play xbox gamers and vice versa?

    Anyone think that competitive gaming could eventually be done this way? For example in COD I could eventually be playing someone who played on Xbox, Playstation and PC, all at the same time?

    I realize its a little far fetched, but I think its a direction gaming needs to go. I want to be able to play the PS3 people in NCAA/Madden and other multiplatform games.


    Will it ever happen?

    FPS on PCs using a mouse have a big advantage on those with a controller

    That'd be awesome! I doubt Microsoft and Sony would co-op to make it happen though. Well, if there was money in it for both of them they might.

    They'd probably have to make all their consoles the same prices though.

    would be awesome if they would do it though, especially for sports games. no matter what system you were on you could be in the same dynasty.

    you are 100% correct on that one, so much easier to am with a mouse. Those who play FPS's on the PC would dominate over Console gamers

    PC's and Xbox can do this already.

    Sony won't get on board out of spite. You know Nintendo never will.

    Care to share something oh wise one? lol

    @Nautica - I don't believe that PC gamers are really that superior with the mouse. I'm not saying its completely false or something like that but the notion that it is steeply in the PC's favor I think is false. I do think there may be some inherent advantage but not one to the point where I think it would be ludicrous to play without a mouse. At the same time, I've seen videos of people playing COD4 on xbox with a mouse and keyboard. Xbox just needs to support it and the problem is solved. Personally, I like the idea of having the OPTION to be able to play with either or.

    You guys wouldn't want me owning all of you! I'd be the reason Ryno would have to change his name to NeedsAid :thumbsup:
