    Nintendo's minds are going to be blown when they find out they have a fully featured cross platform capable network ...

    Playstation to Xbox multiplayer is the headline, but this policy change is as much about making sure people who buy games on the Windows 10 store aren't orphaned from a much larger Steam multiplayer community.

    This is freakin awesome! I've been waiting for something like this ever since I started hanging out on internet gaming forums.

    Seems like we should all support the Rocket League devs for going forward with this.

    Hopefully a few more non-X1 owners will also pick up KI when it's released for PC. Spectator mode while awaiting your turn in the lobby with friends is a lot of fun. I know we had some pretty good nail biters. I'm not sure who I'm picking up for Season 3 now.

    Here's a joke... a man goes into a party and says:

    I invite everybody to party. :)

    With games like Dreii that plan to support almost all active platforms in the market (PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Wii U, PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android), not including Xbox One, due to it's policies, seeing Microsoft sudden change beeing accompanied by an invite to all others for something they are already doing, seems kinda...

    I'll let you finish the previous sentence!

    Now that's more like it... :)
    So... the word I was missing is... innovative? ;)

    Why didn´t they said it on the first place? It would explain it all..
