From what I've heard this isn't for sure as of yet, and will likely start with smaller titles, not AAA.
If it does happen I'd be willing to bet Titanfall is the first mulitplayer AAA to do it given it's going to run on Azure servers
This is cool though, still got a couple buddies on Playstation, would be cool if they could come game with the rest of our friends.
Looks like I picked the perfect time to make the move to PC as well

Most online games do player match making based on player ratings. It's often like a chess rating system where your rating goes up or down based on the ratings of the players you win or lose to.
So, if mice make FPS players "better" (and they do), then really good console FPS players would get matched against poor to mediocre keyboard/mouse players, and at the high end of the ladder it would almost exclusively be keyboard/mouse players.
I think the current player rating systems would be sufficient to prevent games from being a complete blowout. At least once it's figured out what a given players rating/rank should be.

Within a short period of time if one product is routinely superior to another a form of weighting/handicapping would probably by devised.

It will definitely be interesting to see if leaderboards are dominated by 1 particular console.
I suspect fps should be dominated by players aiming with mice heh

All in the lap of the game developers now, not Sony
From what little info is out there so far, the Xbox Live crew are giving over the compatibility development to the game developers. Sony apparently does not need to be involved for PS4s to take part.
I think it remains to be seen if Sony will likewise open up their own gaming network to Xbox devices, or push towards some new formula for the whole industry like a joined network or automatic compatibility.

|audacity||I wonder if that will happen for console FPS games, because console players would get absolutely stomped by players using a mouse/keyboard.|
