Announcement topics are stupid and useless unless you have a source

Truthfully, what they've actually done, though, is enable developers to utilize tools that allow them to enable cross-platform play.

So, not all that exciting anyway until it gets more common to utilized cross-platform play.

Wasn't this practice already in effect for some titles? I play Portal 2 on the PC with a friend who uses their Xbox 360 or PS3, can't remember which. I guess it hadn't been done yet for the modern consoles?

Cross platform play between a console and PC isn't new. The main draw is across consoles.
