An Icelandic developer will attempt to bridge the gap between computers and consoles with its forthcoming Dust 514 this summer. Once this occurs it will be the first time users of two different platforms could play cooperatively breaking that barrier that has long stood in the way of gamers.
When it comes to uniting gamers across multiple platforms the video game industry has been very segregated. Even if you have a game that is released on multiple systems it doesn't mean you can join with another person and play. John has an Xbox 360, Roy has a PlayStation and Lisa has a PC, but these three can't play together. We are all playing online, but we just can't do it together, until now.
