As of many of us most of us started as a PC user before console made its debut, and we probably had more of a reputation on our PC's than our console. For many of us PC to console (Both Xbox One and PS4) i ask you this...Should our PC accounts be linked to our Consoles? If you agree help me convince the game masters to add this feature, if not then i still accept your opinion.

Why not? Its not like its impossible.

 

Because m/k is inherently a vastly superior way of controlling a shooter to console controllers, and the results would be embarrassing to console players - obviously so in a PvP game, but even in a PvE game.  It's a dirty little secret of gaming:- http://www.rahulsood.com/2010/07/console-gamers-get-killed-against-pc.html

 

Not to say that people can't get very good on controllers, nor to say that controllers aren't a fun way of relaxing and playing a game on the couch, and not to say that there aren't some games other than shooters (e.g. fighting games) that controllers are a bit better for.  And not to say either, that some games, e.g. racing games aren't absolutely terrible with m/k.

 

But generally, yeah.  And part of the gripe PC players have had with the effect that game design for consoles has had on videogames (despite the good side of it, that the XBox did keep PC gaming going through a bad patch) is the necessity to "dumb down" not just the gameplay (to make it slow-&#! enough for the clunky controller way of moving a cursor around on a 2-d surface to be effective - and even then you need bloody "smoothing" and "auto-targeting") but also the UI and the possibilities for detailed, complex gaming that m/k allow.

Itvwont happen because both MS and Sony want a cut of platinum purchases.

If you buy 10plat on PC then DE get all the cash.

If you buy 10plat on XBOne the MS get a cut

If you buy 10plat on PS4 then Sony get a cut.

Sony and MS would never allow "PC plat" on their platform nor have a simple way for people to avoid paying their walled garden tax. Hence the one way "migrations" exist but never a full sync.
