Hopefully we get crossplay sometime soon, it's working great in Modern Warfare.

You only help your team mates, because they cannot be shot at, if they are dead.

Makes no difference anyway as 360 players will not be allowed to crossplay with ps4 but if what im hearing in the ambasadors lounge is right the 360 players were warned that Microsoft stopped supporting the 360 3 years ago and Microsoft can now drop the 360 anytime they want. So if crossplay came out tommorow 360 players would no longer be able to connect to xbox live as they were warned 

 

Microsoft released a patch for Xbox 360 recently so i don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon

Very good news. It was also time that in the executive floors of MS and Sony has started a different thinking and the splitting of the communities is finished.

That 360 players stop their hypocrisy. They have the money to pay for Xbox Live Gold, premium account and premium tanks... You can easily find an used Xbox One at less than $60 !!!

Anytime!  I know some of you are expecting more information which is understandable.  However, I cannot answer questions in which answers requires information I don't have to provide at this time.  Just know it is currently one of our goals :) 

No offense but you feel comfortable posting with no answers for questions you know will be asked under the guise that you are providing information. You allow yourself to be put in this position.

One is a new game with expanding revenue.  The other is a 6 year old game with a shrinking playerbase trying to squeeze as much money it can to keep going. 

 

This is about money.  It's always about money.  The cross play beta last year probably cost a dump truck of money to be part of.  Now that it's out of beta, there's probably a lower price.  Of course WG is going to pay for cross play for it's new game before the old one. 

so if it's all about money don't you think they would want to make more money? Or do you think cross-play would be bad for business.

WG probably has to do the costs/benefits comparison.  Will the amount of money it takes to get cross play going be worth the investment?  Will they make that money back?  Those kinds of things.  We don't know for sure, though.  It's all guesses.  But my guesses are based on what games got cross play first. 

 

My dislike of +/- 1 pales in comparison to my hatred of Loaded Dice.

Its the holy grail for most gaming companies and yet WG console don't seem to be bothered. 

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm

Unfortunately I’ll believe it when I see it.  I’m not getting my hopes up anymore.

Well this is crap. They get it but tanks is still looking into it.

 

I still have hope but it’s dwindling along with the player base

Instead of the "Soon" trademark. WG is transitioning to "were looking into it".

I guess the thing I'm wondering is this:  Does this mean cross play is confirmed coming to WoTM, and you just don't have information yet on timelines or implementation? Or are you still in the "we're asking about it" mode that you've been in for the last few years?

 

You seemed to indicate in the Weekly Assault a week or two ago that it was coming like in the first question.

Like I said she comes here posting like she has new information but it's old information. Then she can't answer a single one of the many questions that have been asked now for months. But as long as players continue to give them the benefit of the doubt or make up excuses for them they will continue shoveling it.

I'm going to give them a little time to give us more information.  I especially want an answer to the question I posed above; is it coming but there is no information on timelines yet, or are we still stuck in the "we're asking about it" mode?  If they can't answer that, I'll assume that it's 360 holding us back and act accordingly.

If a 360 user buys a xbox 1 they can still retain the account and tanks correct? If so why not move away from the 360. You can get a used xbox one in my area for 120 to 150 bucks. 

 

Could WG do a promotion like offering a free tier 8 and premium time for those who can make the change. It would be a compelling case as so many are paying for premium time anyway. They could offset the cost to make the move.

Dont look at this as just the bigger countries of the world.  The 360 install base is spread around the entire world in all sorts of socio economic areas.  "Just 120 to 150 buck" is still A LOT of money to some people and upgrading isn't so easy.

- Others maybe they dont play other games and shelling out for a new console to just play 1 game maybe not their idea of well spent either

- There are multitudes of reasons to not upgrade

 

WG is a business and they are pretty steadfast in their support of the 360.  I imagine they've at least made a business decision based on the size of the 360 install base to justify not leaving them.  360 users must be big enough to make it make business sense.

My Girlfriend is often on vacation in a country, where the normal worker gets around 35$. Not per hour, not per day, not per week. Per month. 120 bucks is a fortune for these people.
