Call Free From PlayStation 3

JAJAH, the innovative web-based calling company, has brought its solution to the Sony Computer Entertainment PlayStation 3 system, allowing gamers to initiate free or ultra-low cost global phone calls directly from their game console.

The technology allows users to talk to other gamers around the world on their regular phones. To use JAJAH, you simply register at play.jajah.com. Registration is free, confidential and fast.

"JAJAH's vision is to bring free and ultra low cost calls to people everywhere," said Roman Scharf, JAJAH co-founder. "Introducing JAJAH to gamers is another way of bringing that vision to life."

Launched only one year ago, JAJAH already has more than 2 million registered users in more than 55 countries.

This is how it works: Users with Internet access enter play.jajah.com on their PS3 Internet browser. They will then see an easy-to-use interface, where they enter their own phone number as well as the phone number of the person they are calling. By clicking the "Call" button, JAJAH initiates the call. In seconds, your normal phone (landline or mobile) will ring. At the same time, your friend's phone will ring. You both answer and talk.

JAJAH for gamers works very much like the original JAJAH web-based solution, but it has been optimized for the PlayStation 3 system. Existing JAJAH users who go to play.jajah.com will see their JAJAH address book, their account information, and a new game-friendly design and UI.

"JAJAH now brings free or cheap calling into the living room and away from computers," said Scharf. "Initiating a call with JAJAH can now be done while lounging in front of the TV with no need to fire up the computer. This means that the whole family, regardless of interests or technological skills, can make cheap or even free calls from their normal home phone."

A call with JAJAH is free between registered JAJAH users in most countries. In countries where it's not free, the calls are ultra-low cost.

I plugged my PS3 into the bathroom outlet, just like it said, but I got lost after the part where you cut the phoneline and splice it with the sixxaxis charger cable, and then plug it into the wall???

I kept getting shocked, so I gave up after my hand went numb and just used my cellphone.

It's just a website that allows you to make calls. It was originally designed for prank calls and gets slammed around April Fools day. I've used it to have a teachers cell ring and then when they answered it was calling an old vice principle of mine that everyone hated. The site just created a more streamlined page that makes it easier for the PS3 to use.

Hmmm... strange i wonder what makes people go over the deep end in gaming.

You have no idea how do you know for sure? for all we know this is a response to MS's ideas( future IPTV and other feature, Xbox 360 Universal remote aready has Phone digits with sybols on the keys).

Announcing it now will make it seem like MS's copying when they finsish the tech even though its been designed in there hardware for over a year lol. Dont believe my go check out the remote at a game shop. You'll use the head set to talk and listen and the remote and possibly the key pad to dail.
