Cross-platform play between PS3 and PS4 is “technically possible” says Sony

Developers free to explore the feature

Sony has revealed that cross-platform play between the PS3 and PS4 is possible.

In a new Q&A over on the PlayStation Blog Sony answers a whole load of questions on the PS4 and its capabilities and they revealed that it would be possible to have online multiplayer between PS3 and PS4.

It is not a feature that they know is currently utilised but the Q&A states that developers are free to implement the feature as they see fit. Cross-platform play between PS3 and PS4 is “technically possible” says Sony

The entry on cross-platform play between PS3 and PS4 reads, "The functionality is technically possible and some developers may choose to support it for their titles.”

With the number of titles due out in the next 12 months that are out on both PS3 and PS4 it will be interesting to see if developers take up the option to open up multiplayer servers to both platforms.

Thanks Polygon.
