Well, not exactly but Microsoft has admitted it has left the door open to anyone who wishes to. During the Xbox One presentation at the Tokyo Game Show, Microsoft began to explain their HDMI pass-through port which will, according to Albert Panello, support “any HDMI device.”
Cheekily a hand was raised and someone asked the hilarious question “does that include the PS4?” Whilst Panello did not respond to this directly, he later went on to explain in the presentation that the Xbox One can snap any application on to the screen during gameplay. What came next even Twinstickgaming could not believe, Panello, instead of ignoring the comment decided to place it right slap bang in the middle of the presentation;
Any application can be snapped to a game…this could be the live TV feed, so if you wanted to be playing Ryse and Killzone (a PS4 game) at the same time, you could snap that.”
Could this be the start of Microsoft and Sony co-operation? Sadly I doubt it. I can only imagine Panello didn’t want to get drawn into a battle of words with Sony considering all the jibes Sony have had recently at Microsoft’s expense. However, the statement is undeniable, Microsoft have no intention of blocking the PS4 or PS3 for that matter. Gamers should be able to access their games and video content and have them effectively working in tandem with the Xbox One.
So everyone, what would you use the HDMI pass through port for? Is this another laughable moment in the Xbox One fiasco? Share your thoughts with Twinstickgaming.
