Finally. I wonder if console players will be at a disadvantage to pc players who can use a mouse and keyboard, especially for FPS. I hope Overwatch is cross platform.

I cannot for the life of me picture Overwatch being cross platform. And you don't have to wonder if PC players would be at an advantage.... They would be. There are already numerous documented cases where developers had to tweak their game (penalize PC or help console) so that they could have the different groups play together.

It`s going to require developers to be choosy and that could be a problem. Sony and MS will probably nudge developers to add cross platform play as a selling feature, and I think developers themselves tend to add more and more features, especially when it`ll score points with your target platform.

So we`ll probably get games that should never be cross platform (pretty much any FPS) riddled with either horrible platform imbalance or terrible handicapping features.

It makes sense for a game like Rocket League where keyboard/mouse isn`t an advantage (probably a disadvantage) but the gaming market is pretty FPS heavy...
