The fourth and latest game released is a
first-person shooter for the
Xbox 360 and
Windows Vista and is titled Shadowrun. It was developed by FASA Interactive, owned by
Microsoft Corporation, which also produced the title. This latest title is the very first game that allows cross-platform play between Xbox 360 and Windows Vista users on the Live

But it doesn't matter, because it will neevr happen now sadly.
It still is the best multiplayer game out there in my personal opinion, and for that I'm greatful, broke and unfinished as it may be, I still love it.
