PC gamers to pay for cross-platform gaming?

Anew trailer for Shadowrun has indicated that PC gamers wanting to play against Xbox 360 owners online will need a Live Gold account.

A caption, pointed out by Joystiq, displayed in the closing scenes of the trailer reads: "Cross platform play requires Xbox Live Gold account and hard drive (on Xbox 360), or Games for Windows - Live Gold account (on Windows)."

So, the chance tobeat onpad-using console n00bs is one incentive for PC owners to cough up the cash for a Gold account - Microsoft has informed us that an announcement regarding Windows Live will be made later today. Keep eyes peeled for more details.
