Have you ever wanted to play with your PS3 friends while playing an Xbox 360 game? Well this won’t be that game but at least there is some form of cross-platform gameplay that you’ll be able to enjoy. I know you probably thought that you’d be battling head to head against friends on one console and another but nope, you won’t. Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure simply allows you to keep a persistent character whether leveling up on Xbox 360 or PS3 or a DS. Of course you’ll have to have each different copy of the game so this may not be all that cool of an idea.
Using the game’s Portal of Power™, players will bring their Skylanders interaction figures to life inside the game on any platform. During console and handheld gameplay, each Skylander remembers skill advancements and level-ups, allowing players to take their leveled-up Skylanders to play on any of the other platforms.
“Imagine a kid taking his Skylanders toy and bringing it to life on his Xbox 360 one day, then bringing it to life on his friend’s PS3 the next day, then bringing it to life inside his 3DS and playing it in the back of his parents’ car the next day, then bringing it to life on the web the day after that, all the while, building his character’s strength and powers across all of those platforms,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “It brings the physical and virtual worlds of play together in a whole new way.”
