Seriously, just shut up about it.

MikeMyers2136d ago

Isn't that an oxymoron?

Anyways there are added benefits to how chat is handled on Xbox Live. That is one can play with a friend, chat during the game, stop playing that game and put in something else while still talking. Or how about this, get a request while within dashboard (or playing a game) to play X game, once the request is honored, voice chat is now enabled even before the game is loaded and off you go while still being totally connected.

i will ask one thing.. for any gamer out there
will you sell your ps3 and get xbox360 just because Cross Game Chat?!

i need an answer

no of course i won't
that would be silly reason
but i would trade xbox for ps3 for alot more reasons than that
and i already have ps3 BTW and it's my main console along with pc and xbox360

Would you sell your Xbox 360 because the dualshock has Sixaxis support?

RGB2136d ago

Not ever! Substitute some of the best exclusives ever made for a feature I'd rarely use. PS3 > 360 everyday of the year.

I don't even use Steam chat on PC. Haven't people heard of Skype? :D

sure, ive also heard of ventrilo, viber, messenger, yahoo etc etc.....have fun constantly installing new software because something new suddenly becomes popular among your friends/ new friends. Oh and by the way your solution requires a 100$ phone or pc anyway + space on your table + extra power socket.

Yeah...X-game chat is soooo awesome! I love playing a game, then talking to someone else playing another game. I also love watching a movie and chatting with people playing games! I hate playing a game and not being able to talk to people playing another game. I hate watching netflix and not being able to talk to people playing their games. I need to be connected via voice 24/7! It's soooo important to me!!

When I take a shit I like to call friends cause I hate doing things and not having someone talk to me at the same time.

I have had a vita for months and it has cross game chat and i have not used it a single time.

LAZL0-Panaflex2135d ago

Because youre the only knucklehead that bought a vita.

admiralvic2135d ago

The funny thing is, I haven't seen much about it since Sony revealed it wasn't possible, yet we get this article that is, I don't know... 6 months too late?

Why should we shut up about it? The feature should have been there day 1.

guitarded772136d ago (Edited 2136d ago )

We should shut up about it because it will NOT happen on PS3. The RAM needed for the feature is allocated for other things, so the ONLY way to have a cross game chat system on PS3 is if the game developers (ALL OF THEM) free up RAM use and each game has a cross chat system built into it. Sony will have the feature next gen, but not this gen. Plus no one was even talking about this anymore until this stupid article came up. Sony have addressed this issue, and gave the answer I gave above.

Hicken2135d ago

It wasn't even on the 360 Day 1.

Try harder.

kassler2136d ago

Because it's not gonna happen, due to RAM limitations.

HeavenlySnipes2136d ago

lol I know. People bring it up all the time when its been confirmed that it won't happen. If its not there next gen then maybe the complaints can be justified.

I like that there are differences between the consoles, it makes every company have to work harder to get consumer support. Should we complain every chance we get that XBL users don't have a Home type place where gaming events are streamed and contests are held in the virtual world?

Its just a small difference between the consoles

MikeMyers2136d ago

You're right. We should all have our PC's next to our PS3's so we can keep talking. I myself go one step further, I have my cellphone in one hand, a dualshock in the other and an Ipad on my lap so I can also use Skype.
