Sony is exploring the possibility of letting Planetside 2 players transfer their character between the PlayStation 4 and PC versions.While Planetside 2 will not feature cross-platform play, the developers at Sony Online Entertainment are trying to work out how the two versions of the free-to-play shooter can link up.In an interview with Eurogamer at the SOE Live event in Las Vegas, Matt Higby, creative director of Planetside 2, said all PC content patches will appear on the PS4, but with a slight delay for approval - and it's this delay that means cross-platform play isn't possible."Because of the update cadence, and the additional steps you have to go through to be able to release an update on the PlayStation network, we're not going to be able to keep our servers in sync, so you won't be able to just play with the same people," Higby explained."They might be a week behind in terms of patching, or a day behind or whatever it ends up being, and we can't really have that."But we're also talking about having character portability, so a PC character, you could transfer it to PlayStation 4, and then back. The character format's the same on both, it's just purely a matter of the server updates."
