Cross-platform multiplayer is not a new phenomenon by any means, but Shadowrun will be the first Xbox 360 title to boast such a feature. Gold-level Games for Windows will be able to compete with Xbox 360 denizens online. Whereas Silver-level Games for Windows members will restricted to PC-to-PC online play only. Sorry guys! Online play will support up to 16 players for both platforms. Both the Vista and Xbox 360 versions of Shadowrun will be mutually released on store shelves in June. There is, however, no precise date.
Interesting nonetheless, because many gamers are beginning to prefer controllers over the (conventional) keyboard and mouse scheme. Finally, gamers can settle their platform differences.
