Cal I play online with my friends that have Play Station if I have Xbox Live gold?
This is a feature that a lot of people are asking. Right now, this only depends on the game that you want to play. If the game is Cross-Platform supported, then yes you can play it online with your friends that have other consoles such as PlayStation. But if the game doesn’t support it, you cannot play it with other users that are using different consoles and will need to wait until it’s supported on the game.
