Online multiplayer is facilitated through your console network. This means you can only play with friends who are playing on the same type of console.
For example, if you have a PlayStation 3 but your friend has an Xbox 360, the two of you won’t be able to play together. However, if you both have a PlayStation 3, you could play at the same time!
Keep in mind that you must have a network account (Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, or Nintendo Network) to play online.For information about setting up network accounts, check out the PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo support sites.
Follow the directions below to invite a friend on the same network to play:
1. Go to a Toy Box
2. Press Start or Options depending on your console
3. Choose Online/Multiplayer
4. Select Invite Friends
5. Follow the steps for your console
