PS3 Cross-Game Chat Coming In Firmware Update?

PlayStation 3 owners may be getting a long-requested feature with the console's next firmware update: cross-game voice chat.

While the feature has been rumoured to be in development for months, a post on the official PlayStation forums today may have inadvertently confirmed its imminent release. "Naughty Dog Dev" ReklissAbandon wrote in response to player requests for enemy spectating in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves that PlayStation 3 cross-game chat might make that request unfair.

"I think they wanted people to have fun and ejoy the show since all dead players can talk to each other no matter what team you are on. But I will suggest it anyway. Not to mention that the next PS3 firmware update is going to allow cross game chat. So if players use that instead of in game communication then they would also be able to communicate enemies positions." Posted by ReklissAbandon, a Naughty Dog Dev. (PS3)

Opps!
I hope Sony gives the guy a break since he worked on one of the most amazing games I've ever played.

Huh?
Really? I'm surprised. If this is true I guess its one less thing xbox fanboys can quit parading on about, but I'm cool either way.

I stopped at 11, but the list is a lil longer.
Finally...ive been wanting this since 2007. Now all Sony needs ta do is:

1. Make the Playstation Store Accessible from any game, Home, and the Internet Browser.

2. Have a Sleep mode like the PSP(Leave for a lunch break and come back and start from the same point in the game that I left off)

3. Have some type of plug-in that ill enable the Internet Browser to be compatible with Adobe Flash Player.

4. Be able to watch ur videos with buddies in ur home apartment. Users can post videos and they can appear on a the big screens in Home(tips and tricks) for everyone to see. Overall more user generated content for Home.

5. Get home out of beta and streamline it(no loadtimes when going into areas) and more user customization of Home itself.

6. A party system like Uncharted 2 but for EVERY GAME

7. Make Dreamcast games(Shenmue 1 and 2) available on the PSN.

8. Make ALL if not MOST PSP games available on the PSN.

9. Give us dynamic themes that are ACTUALLY worth buying and appeal to a wide range of people.(I have the Wipeout HD one and its AWESOME and its FREE in the Euro store)

10. Trophies= monetary gain in Home. The more trophies you get the MORE things u can get in Home. The harder the trophy is to get, the better the reward!

11. ORGANIZED Voice chat in Home.

@ZombieAutopsy- YES YES YES, 12. Why cant we download stuff off PSN WHILE PLAYING GAMES, when the PS3 is OFF, or on Home?!?! Its so obvious!

So PS3 sucks!

Hahahah! I guess there goes one of the final complaints that 360 owners were desperately clinging to in order to justify Xbox Live.

4. The ability to put photos of urself in ur Home department.

You can in fact do this... for $2 or $3 that is. You get the picture frames in which you can upload any pic of off your hdd. It's pretty cool. But what Home needs is games with some trophies that you can earn & have it so that you don't have to wait in line in order to bowl or play pool, I want to be able to play right away with my online buddies.

Not everybody wants/needs this feature. Same goes for the text chat room, not needed but is nice to have. Same could be said of the internet browser.

Sony traded it off with having a working console and not some cheap old PC...

Jeez don't all consoles have great exclusives this year.

You have games like Wii sports, mario games , Motorstorm AE, inFAMOUS, Killzone 2, professor layton, UNCHARTED 2 and this short expansion pack which sells at full retail :P

So yeah :P

Don't be a fanboy, I think all console have great years but I am just trying to fight back and if I must sink to their (in general not him in particular) stupid level then I sure as hell will.

This is good, more features the better BUT I don't mind not having it.

Not like we don't know that this is coming.
I mean, when you go to the chat menu right now, it's there as an option, just greyed out. Obviously it's coming.

It's not an option that I'm interested in, didn't use it on my Xbox 360, won't use it on my PS3, but I hope this comes soon just so 360 fanboys can stop with the "Sure the service is free, and lag free, and you have games with 256 players, and you have trophies, and plenty of titles, and video, but you don't have cross game chaaaaaaat!"

Only thing I want or need is ps1/ps2 in game xmb, but kindly would take any of those.
ape007  +   1897d ago
@deadreckoning I'll add more :)
1-universal party system directly through the xmb and cross game invites

2-fully featured gamer cards that have deep player status which shows where your friend is exactly playing in which mode

3-the ability to join session in progress from anywhere

4-tons of new avatars\animated themes

5-shorten the time between achieving the task of a trophy and its actual sound\logo apperance like achievements,FOR EXAMPLE,in resi5 when you do the knife achievement,in 360 the achievement unlocked sound and logo come immediatly after that task,giving you a cool effect,in ps3,there's like 3 seconds delay which make it kinda meh

6-the ability to play your favorite soundtrack in every single game

7-when you get a trophy or receiving a massage,make the ps button go directly to it

8-a bit modified in-game xmb,that have colors,move fast and have sounds

9-home xmb integration,home trophy room

10-the ability to switch profiles without going out as well as two player sign in each game

11-the ability to view gamercards in online lobbies directly

12-better leaderboared integration

"lol it's pretty hilarious seeing you guys get worked up over something that has been a staple of pc gaming for over a decade. "

It has nothing to do with that. Microsoft fanboys have been holding this as their major reason to pay for live. With Sony picking this up, It makes Microsoft asking for money a little awkward since Sony has caught up to their services, and in some ways have surpassed it... for free.

cross voice chat is cool, but i prefer custom soundtrack. i only did it a few times when i had the xbox, but some of my games on the ps3 just scream for custom soundtracks.

judas priest ftw!
Foliage  +   1897d ago
"i prefer custom soundtrack"

I prefer playing games that don't have you wanting to mute the in-game music. Luckily most PS3 games have incredible audio, the blu-ray definitely doesn't hurt with the lossless sound data. I can't think of a single game from my PS3 lineup (many many games) that had me wanting to listen to something else.

Besides... there are many many electronics that will allow you to play your music, and most games allow you to turn music off. I'd prefer using my ipod dock.

Still, soundtracks have nothing to do with network capabilities...

I'm with you, aftrdark21. It's just not very useful.
Used XBL for two years, never used cross game chat once. Quite frankly, I think it's rude. If someone called me up and wanted to chat while he played a game - I'd say hang up and call me back when you can give me your attention.

I hate talking to someone while they're doing something else. It's just ignorant.

coz i've experienced lag and latency on the psn on plenty of occasions. perhaps it's my 18meg down 1 meg up connection thats at fault, cos it cant be the psn rite? you know, lag and latency doesn't exist on sonys on-line gaming utopia...well it doesn't according to all the idiotic brainwashed fanboys like you. i love my ps3, i just hate reading the sh!t that gets spewed by you turds on here.

same goes to you aswell GWAVE...you have got to be the saddest idiot on here now. you're even worse than the idiots that dwell in the open zone in every 360 thread. get a life ey.

anyway, please be true. and please get invites into every game. although these missing features dont damage the quality of killzone on-line, they are slightly annoying.

oh by the way turds. no matter how features sony add to the psn, i will still and always have and pay for live. sorry if you dont like that losers.

you make a good point about the IE, i really really thought that MS would of intergrated their IE by now. I'm sure if they did it would be alot better than the ps3's too (IMO the ps3 browser sucks bawlz but does get the job done to an extent). Come on MS no one uses your browsers on pc's anymore so let us use them on our consoles.

Hmmm
Cross game chat would be nice, I guess. It's one of those features people like to drone on and on about, but I just don't see it being used much. It also concerns me with regards to a game like Demon's Souls, where such a feature would undermine the developer's intentions. And, of course, there's the aforementioned issue of people giving away teammate positions in FPS games. Developers should have the option to block XMB chat between players on opposite teams in a given match.

If you don't see it being used much, you've probably never used it on Live. It's an invaluable feature man and one that's sorely missed when one moves between systems constantly. Party Chat especially since I have a lot of family and friends who play when I do and so we all join a party and talk sh*t while playing games. It's a social thing, one that Sony definitely needs (as Home isn't cutting it).
ZombieAutopsy  +   1897d ago

How does Live stop people from using it to cheat?
McRad  +   1897d ago
You don't stop them from using the Cross Voice/Party Chat for that, but those are the breaks and you adapt accordingly. It's something that you deal with if it happens since if you're on your game then any ambush they could plan with a voice chat wouldn't even matter anyway. I play on PC all the time and you can be on Teamspeak, Vent, Skype, whatever and it won't matter because if you're good you're going to get them anyway.

Its really useful to be able to decided upon a common game to play when in a party and such, much faster than messages.

That's just it, though. If we are playing Call of Duty, I don't want YOU using it, either, if it allows you to grief my team by telegraphing our positions to your buddies on the other team.

If this Naughty Dog dev said it, then it's obviously going to happen.

Does wait beyond imply games because the 360 is failing in that department or are you really hyping side items instead of the actual thing a gaming-console is used for. But if you were describing the 360 then cheers keep at it! =)

XBOX 360 is useless! HA HA H AHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA !
INFERIOR RIP OFF!!! HA HA HA HA HA AH AHA HA !

POOR MANS PS3 !!! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

OH BOY! WHATS THE POINT XBUTTS?!?!
Aquarius  +   1897d ago
they love throwing their money down the drain for free features ;)

I would remove poor man's ps3 as the flopbox 0.5 is not even a quarter of a tripleAstation.

simply, four generations behind :P

AlitheBOT, Trophy's, cross game chat, In-game interface, is that it 3things?????

I can list about 100 things that the TripleA can do but the flopbox can't but you know let's not go there ;)

How can the 360 be a rip off when it was here first?

Trophy's, cross game chat, In-game interface, Non of these things would exist if it wasn't for the 360, but the 360 is ripping off? LOL

PS3 is an amazing console, but so is the 360, dont be a hater be a gamer ;)

What a hypocritical douchebag you are. Don't try to be all noble when you yourself are a fanboy.

now all the PSN needs to beat live
is a service fee and a community of whiny, foul-mouthed tweeners.

Why does PSN need a fee? The whole upper hand PSN has on Live in a big way that it is free. If it can add features like this for free thats better for gamers. And sooner then later it will become better then Live via user friendly. Online play on ps3 is better then xbox. But user friendly Live is better then PSN.

Most of us have suspected for awhile that we would be getting this feature. Obviously most people who use PSN have been asking for it and to be honest Sony really has tried to listen to their customers about PSN. Anyway I hope they dont do anything harsh to him about this.

I know youre right.
The xbox 360 is like a poor mans Mr. potatoe head.
no direspect to mr. potatoe head.

LOL, way to slip that up. hey Sony Give this guy a break, he made an awesome game, kthnx :)

Cross game voice chat is why XBOX LIVE is better than PSN.
PSN is finally on the same level at LIVE. =)
Noob  +   1897d ago
Good
Hopefully this will shut up all the people complaining about this feature.
ForROME  +   1897d ago
Oh nice, 1 out of my 3 wanted features down if true, cross game invite and cross game music next! Bring it!
BaSeBaLlKiD721  +   1897d ago
Cross Game Music is already here...

It just the matter of devs supporting it. Thank MS for that
LinuxGuru  +   1897d ago
You mean in-game music? PS3 already has that, it's just not an enforced standard like it is on the 360.
saint_john_paul_ii  +   1897d ago
voice messaging should be the next logical step after X-game Chat.
Blaster_Master  +   1897d ago
Voice messaging will also be included in the next firmware update.
RAM MAGNUMS  +   1897d ago
dudette,
once PSN has Cross game chat people will open thier eyes and realize that PSN is already Miles better than xbox live. Psn Just pretty much dusted xbox live.

xbox live messed up and got too comfortable.
seriously, facebook and twitter is the big appeal?
how does that beat the fully working internet browser?
IT DONT.
Avatars? BEAT BY HOME.
SERVERS? PSN!
HANDHELD Compatibilty? OOoops, sorry.
GAMES and Movies? PSN!

Complete Blowout.
Nathaniel_Drake  +   1897d ago
Not about being a fanboy but when these things, like cross game and video chatting and others are implemented what does the $50 a year truly mean
