Opt-in to cross gen play? Would you do it?

I would choose to play with next Gen.

I would NOT choose to play with next Gen.

I'm on next gen only, and I'll leave a comment

As a PS3 or X360 user, would you choose to play [b]cooperatively[/b] and [b]competitively[/b] with next gen console users in your network, if the option was made available to you? Feel free to share the reasons for your choice in the comments, if you wish. [quote]“I’ll speak for the hypothetical player,” Wolfson explains. “I have a disadvantage sniping across the map because [my opponent with a next-gen console] is only two pixels on my screen and I’m four pixels on his. You see that in the world of PC gaming, where people are always racing to the best video card to give themselves the advantage.”[/quote][quote]“Regardless of where the reality is, there’s definitely a perception among gamers that better hardware means you have an advantage. We don’t want to have to enter that fray, so to create the best, most level playing field, both actually and perceptually, we separated it by platform.”[/quote][url=http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/for-bungie-straddling-four-consoles-in-destiny-was-a-balancing-act/]Source: Digital Trends[/url] If you've got thoughts on this as a PS4 or XB1 user, I'd be interested to hear about that as well. Would it bother you to have opponents and team mates using 360 or PS3 consoles?

  • Xbone I wouldn't mind if everything was fair regardless of what console you had

      • Hell yeah, connect both generations if possible. Screw it, connect all four platforms! [spoiler]It won't happen. Sadly :([/spoiler]

        • They should connect each generation to each other (i.e. ps4 and xbox one together while the ps3 and xbox 360 are together) but it will never happen.

        • I'm a ps4 user and i believe this would be a good idea when the game is 60fps on current gen :)

        • i still think it should cross 360-PS3 and PS4-Xbone that way no one has an "advantage" but we still get more people to play with.

            Can't think of any reason why not. The graphics advantage wouldn't be an issue as I sit [i]this close[/i] to the TV. I play on PS3, I want a PS4 but none of my friends have one, this would make the transition easier.

              • I'll be playing on PS4, and as far as I can tell, the more the merrier. However, the opt-in concept might actually limit the number of servers I can join, since everyone in there would have to have opted in, and let's face it, if it's not the default setting there aren't a lot of people who are going to take the time to change it. If it was a one-sided opt-in, though, where PS3 users could join PS4 lobbies, I'd be fine with that. PS3 users would get the short end of the deal, but us next-gen gamers blame them for everything left out of Destiny, so they can suck it up.

                • Id appreciate the ability to play with PS3 users. About half the people I know cant afford the upgrade, and not being able to play with them makes me :( I wrongly believed for quite a long time that we were already able to cross-gen play. Not sure where I got that idea. And, honestly, Im so bad at PvP, last gen players would humiliate me just as much as other PS4 players. Pixels would not save me.
