Hi if i was to buy an xbox one with call of duty ghost and a friend of mine has the same game on the 360 would we be able to join party and play together. or would we both need to own the same console ? many thanks

It is feasible but don't know if they would implement it. They would have to limit maps and players to 360 standards. I'd like to see the option to play a few maps across Xboxes and pcs.

MS "killed" PC/Xbox cross-platform play News • News • Eurogamer.net
As it says, PC gamers were destroying console players in head-to-head matches, which isn't a surprise in the slightest. Cross-platform between PlayStation and Xbox could be reasonably competitive, but PC peripherals (mouse and keyboard) offer too great of an advantage over controllers. They have better acceleration and precision, so it wouldn't even be a contest if Microsoft tried it.
The only "maybe" option would be controllers-only lobbies on PC that allowed cross-platform play, but I have no idea how you could check the input source to even manage such a setup.

No, it really wouldn't. The console gamers would still be at a massive disadvantage, so while the game types of hindrances would be in-place on each team, it would just lead to PC gamers complaining about carrying the "console kids."

I wouldn't mind seeing some RTS games go cross platform maybe even multi-platform to include touch devices. RTS games aren't as lightning quick as FPS so it takes away some of the advantages. With Kinect voice controls you could even take away the keyboard shortcut advantage. "build assassin" instead of: navigate to barracks > open build queue > select assassin > select build.

If you said Battlefield 4 then I would say not a chance in hell. (16v16 on X360 compared to 32v32+2Commanders on XB1)
But as you said COD:Ghosts then possibly as the XB1/PS4 version will probably be a direct port of the X360/PS3 version. (Not seen anything that couldn't run on current consoles as their game engine is still awful)

Most people who do more PC gaming than consoles feel the same....
I will admit it would be nice if you can play the same game cross platform from both systems (360 and X1). I know family members wont have the X1 when I get it, it would be nice to grab a game that they have just to play with them...

I don't play much on PC (haven't re-installed Steam or any games since I upgraded to Windows 8, back in November or so), but I'd imagine that I could get on a cross-platform server and use a mouse and keyboard to beat up on good console gamers. I think that the gap in potential is MASSIVE between the PC and console manners of input, to the point where a below-average PC gamer could beat most above-average console ones. Change that to an above-average PC gamer, and I doubt many (if any) console gamers stand a chance.
