You sly dogs, Microsoft.

Microsoft have used an interview with our excellent fellow Australian site Ausgamers to hint at the possibility of Xbox One-PC cross-platform play in the future.
“I’m not allowed to leak things,” said Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Studios Phil Spencer to Ausgamers, reportedly smiling. “But what you’re talking about makes a lot of sense.”
“Now you have differences in Windows gaming and console gaming around control and input… in fact if you go back to Shadow Run on Xbox 360 — something I worked on — we had PC players playing against Xbox 360 customers. We didn’t have tremendous success with that, but we learnt a lot from it.”
Microsoft recently hired one of the top men at Valve to work on their gaming division, leading many to speculate that the company may be re-focusing on PC gaming in a new way.
