    I'm a bit worried about cross platform play. The reason why OnLive's community is tolerable is because it's like the 360 community during the first year before it got swarmed with COD heads and little tykes. It's nice, peaceful and while you might get an asshole once in a blue moon, it's fairly rare.

    Again, I think that any large multiplayer community will have problems with disruptive, annoying players. If you give people anonymity and a large audience, John Gabriel's GIFT takes over.

    This is a bit misleading...

    A staff member commented shortly after that:
    "To clarify, the two platforms are separate environments with unique networking so unfortunately Ravaged will not support cross platform play at launch.

    Sorry!"

    No telling when and IF they'll ever allow cross platform. I'd like to see it but I won't believe it till they add it.

    They're probably not adding it since people playing the game on their own hardware instead of streaming the game off OnLive's servers would have a pretty huge input delay advantage whereas if you keep the multiplayer experiences separate you'd always end up playing against people with the same advantages/disadvantages as you have.
