GFWL and Steam in multiplayer
Permalink  
 


It's probably a noob question lol but,

I noticed recently some games are available on the 2 platforms.

Regarding the multiplayer,

For example, I have the game Dirt 3 in CD box GFWL version, is that the world best record ranking is the same as for the Steam users? confuse

Is that the Steam users play against others players on others platform in multiplayer or it's an individual server for each?

It might depend on the game itself. Steam and GFWL are moreso wrappers around the game which make it easier for friends to locate the same server that either of them are on.
Technically the games themselves are just clients that connect to the hosting server so in that sense it shouldn't matter if you are playing a steam or GFWL based version to find friends on the other platform.
As an example think of UT3. We have the vanilla and steam versions. All players can play on any server regardless of which version of UT3 they are using.
