MMORPG developer and publisher Mythic Entertainment has revealed that it's been running its current PC game Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning on an Xbox 360.
On Mythic's E3 stand last week gamers were able to get hands-on with the PC MMORPG and play with developers who were supposedly back at Mythic's headquarters. The truth was, however, that members of the Mythic team were joining in the online play backstage on Xbox 360s.
Significantly, Mythic hasn't announced that it is going to release a version of the MMORPG for next-gen consoles, but it has satisfied itself that it has the capability to make a console version, and so is an idea the developer is toying with.
The cross-platform gameplay is particularly significant as it falls in-line with Microsoft's Live Anywhere initiative which aims to unite the gaming community, whether they choose to play games on Xbox 360, PC or mobile phone.
