"I have just discovered that Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has cross game invite. I was playing resistance 2 when sand-man sent me a invite from CODMW2. Out of curiousity I tried joining from the messaging service"
The only reason i approved this is because many people may not have known it had Xgame invite. But it's had XMB invite for some time now. Otherwise it's Lame lol.
yes.. but it is extremely old news... Play RE5? Played Lost Planet 2 Demo? All of them had the same system. RE5 is the PERFECT example of how old this news is. There are probably more games, but thats the one i remember distinctly.. oh wipeout HD too! (patched in) But unlike 360's invite system, this system is to be developed by the devs from what i understand. It's not 'ready made' for the devs to implement. I may be wrong.. i dont make games.. i dont work for sony..
"RE5 is the PERFECT example of how old this news is. There are probably more games, but thats the one i remember distinctly.." wait, so RE5 has this system as well? im pretty sure it doesnt.
It does. You invite your friend via XMB.. (Triangle -> invite on friend) friend accepts via XMB.. Triangle -> Accept Friend invite. I was very happy to see Re5 working so well.. which is why i remember it so distinctly. http://www.youtube.com/watc... This is just the demo showing it working. Couldnt find a better vid, sorry It's not as perfect as Cod6's.. but you can tell its been there ya know?
yea u can send the invite from the xmb and accept the invite from the xmb, but you had to be in RE5 to do that, you could not accept the invite if you wre out of the game, or if you were in another. if u were in another game or on the xmb and playing no game, and u got a invite from RE5, and then went to your messages you would not see the join button until u went into RE5 Game screen. RE5 did not have cross game invite, u could say it was an early prototype. Now i dont know about lost planet or wipeout hd, if they had cross game invite. if anyone who has these games, i would appreciate it if u guys could test this out to see if it works like Call of duty modern warfare 2 or like resi 5. if its like resi 5 then they dont count along with resi 5 to have cross game invite.
thats what Im saying. I know RE5 does invites, but its not like how MW2 does it on the PS3. what MW2 does is what everyone wants on PS3, AKA Cross-Game Invites. we all now know this is possible. all Sony needs to do is to require it now. Im Pretty sure that this system has been added since firmware 3.0 which is a surprise, dont know why Sony didnt talk about it. maybe they dont want kids to get desperate for this feature to be streamlined. I guess this is why Infinity Ward didn't do a good job incorporating this feature until they patched it and fixed it (which works silky smooth now), because it was a late addition to the PS3 version of the game. Aparently DiRT 2 does this as well. can anyone confirm this?
Ah. Well here's cross game invite just like Mw2 Dirt 2 had X-cross invite system http://www.ps3attitude.com/... All i was saying that it has been there in earlier forms.. Send invite from game X to someone playing Game Y. All they need to do is pop in the game and accept the invite. This is just the most advanced stage of cross game invite system.
ok so why doesnt it get featured in every game, and also why does hardly any1 know about this feature, and the best em all why did'nt we hear about this from sony, cuz it was like one of the mosted asked for feature. that is the whole purpose of this article, so every1 knows and bangs on sonys doors to make this mandatory for developers. wouldnt u guys want htis feature in every ps3 game. if the feature is available then why should we have join games in a sgit way
I agree. Good news is.. the feature is getting around. (I already apporved the article awhile ago) Hopefully next year (e3? TGS?) Sony will announce that its going ot be implemented into every game soon after. I was surprised to see that U2 didnt have it. Andd.. I'm pretty much out of bubbles.. Gnite .. lol i remember I used to watch all the home beta walkthroughs from DLB network ^^ Back when home was in closed beta stage.. fun times..
Sony is still perfecting the system...thats why it fails during some games...I am sure devs have had a mandatory implementation this function into the current games like they did with trophys...now where just waiting for Sonys front office to give it a go...
You can also join friends' games without invites via XMB.
I never know about it be4 today, thx guys
Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2 both had cross game invites.
I'm gonna go with "lame" on this news. Every time I start to convince myself PSN is getting close to LIVE, some lame update like this just reminds me how backwards it is.
yup its already there. all sony needs to do now is to require it on games that feature a multiplayer mode. but knowing sony, they will not grow a pair of testicles to force devs to do it. if anyone disagrees, please take a look at home...
lol. Well they will eventually. Like they force all devs to do trophies now.. remember back when this used to be a rare thing?
As far as I can recall this came with the launch game Motorstorm, I don't know how anyone thinks this is news. Also was used in countless games since, including soul calibur 4 on top of the others mentioned. If anyone is touting this as a new feature of 3.0 it is sheerly based on ignorance.
If MS made the software and the controller, and Sony made the hardware, it would result in a console thats better than either the 360 or the PS3. It could be called the PMS4. Edit:LOL at controller wars. My money would be on the Xbox1 or the Atari Jaguar to win that fight. They were both heavyweights.
ya mean OS when you say software right? I agree. but I rather like my Sony controller very much. It feels familiar and I like that. I personally love using the PS controller over 360 controller. As long as they have 'options' for controllers.. yup awesome. Then we'd have controller wars instead of console wars lol
System - Sony OS - Sony/Adobe/Mozilla Controller - Logitech Any questions?
Hardware - Apple OS - Apple Os X Controller - M$ ...and I'm a Sony fanboy.
Hate to say it, but aside from the party-system screen on Live, the PS3 software, both local system and online, is much better than the 360s. Live feels clunky compared to PSN. The way MS tried to merge the offline and online interface was needless and just makes the whole thing feel messy and unrefined. On top of this, Live has no answer to Home (not that I think Home is anywhere near its potential, but it's better than the 360's lack of anything). I don't know where the myth that the 360 has better software comes from...again, aside from a couple of little capabilities, the overall experience is inferior to the PS3's.
Video of This in action: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Good Job Snake, you were quick to get this on N4G.. now im gettin bashed for a duplicate article. :p
That black screen doesn't always happen. I've had it happen a handful of times, but its not consistent.
Ive never had it work.. but i've only tried a hand full of times
And yet no one knows about it???? REQUIRE it sony. Its foolish not too. Its your platforms "Experience" on the line!
LMAO still playing catch up
LMAO still waiting for games. Playing catch up with Facebook? Haha, PS3 already got theat and more.
Still wishing you had bought a reliable console, had any brains you would be. Jump Out, Play B3yond
Still a retard with no life? Thought so
Still butt hurt from knowing that 360 Community Head and Shoulders Above PS3
PSN Community Head and Shoulders Above 3FixME...who got FaceBook first? 60% HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
still waiting to pass the 1st grade.
Add me: King_Cush.
It's the same with custom soundtracks. Microsoft owns the patent...so, Sony has to find a way around it.
This is old news.
I havent heard about until now. I was just complaining on the EU blog how hard it is to get online with your friends on a ps3 due to the fact that more or less all games use different system when it comes to connecting to a friend and play online. But this is how it should be done I think, seems like a good system IF ALL GAMES use this otherwise the problem with a variety of systems still exist. If all games use this system it would be sooooo much easier for every people who wants to play online with their friends. It must be a nightmare for people who just bought the system and has to learn how each games handles the connection with your friends.
if this is what cross-game invite is PS3 had this Aloooooong time ago. Raibow six vegas one had this wasn't that out in like 2007? same with 2. Now if sony could require it be implemented now.
no it didnt
u sure? well number 2 does have it,
360 owners aare waitung for games?? huch?? the PS3 got exactly 3 games more this year.. and there awere about 100 multiplattform games. The PS3 community sounds really retarded.. and they say that the average year of a PS3 owners is about 25-35 years??.. i would rather say 10-15 years and you know why?? Cause their exclusive games all flop compared to multiplattform games. I mean, even NFS:Shift sold more that Uncharted2.. Fifa10 sold on the PS3 as much as R&C, Demons souls and infamous togehter! You talk about your exclusives?? damn.. how can you talk about a game if no copys were sold?? its like wouldnt even TOUCH the game.. PS3boys = epic fail
Given your dislike for everything related to Sony or Playstation, i'm rather suprised that you only really visit Sony related articles, and even when there is an odd moment where your commenting on news with zero Sony involvement, you still spend half a day writing about them. Do yourself a favour, take a long, deep breath, go and hybernate in your room and play on the Xbox or Wii or whatever console your bumming. Your not convincing anyone with what you say, mainly because you put it across like your a half wit 12 years old, and the way you form debates is horrific. The fact you banged on about Fifa 10 selling well shows you haven't got a clue how the market works. Hmmmm, what will sell more, inFAMOUS, a decently rated game that little outside the gaming community has heard of, or Fifa 10, a game that comes out every year for over 15 years now, based on the worlds most popular sport, and is probably a bigger reason for shifting consoles than the majority of games on any platform (along with other sports titles like Madden, PES, Tiger Woods etc) Now, run along, and come back when you can actually form a well thought out arguement and a little knowledge about market trends/history/gaming and society in general
They won't ever be fully universal, but if sony force this standard for all developers in the future, it would be a good step forward.
Erm this is old old old stuff... It was in Dragonball Z Burst Limit back in 2008. Guess cause it's Modern Warfare, it gets heavenly treatment.
people are missing the point here, ok maybe it was in other games, my point why is it not in every game after dirt 2 which i believe is the only other game to fully utilise the feature(RE5 DOES NOT COUNT NOR DO ANYOTHER GAME WITH A INVITE SYSTEM LIKE RE5), why have i not heard anyone else mention this. we need to get word out to sony that we are aware of this feature and we would like it in every game due out after 2010.
I had cross game invites since 2008 and the system worked back then, I was invited out of Motorstorm Monument Valley to play Pro Evo 2008, it did the work for me. I don't know why this is being treated as something new.
Welcome to next gen ps3fantards
thanks mother faker
60% HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Welcome to next gen ps3fantards thank you. maybe the xbox will make it to the next gen soon
Lol @ ps3 fans getting excited over this. Congrats, you guys are beating wii online.
your welcome XB1TCH
How much a year is the Wii online again?
XBL is inferior to PSN when it comes to hardcore online gaming dedicated servers all over PC online games and we all know that PC is the ultimate hardcore gaming device so dose PSN uses dedicated servers with games up to 256 players on the same map or 64 players on the same map with the best graphics while the 360 still struggle with laggy 5 on 5 peer to peer connections and half assed graphics that are not even HD all because of the last gen hardware and the inferior peer to peer connections HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
So the Wii has better online then Live now????
THATS PATHETIC. jUST ANOTHER FEATURE THAT SONY IS TRYING TO COPY FROM XBOX BUT TOO BAD FOR THEM THEY FAIL HORRIBLY AT IT.
You know someone's insecure and not very confident in their argument when they have to put "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA" at the end of their comment. They probably have tears rolling down their cheeks as they type that. And not tears of laughter.
I stopped reading after this :D! Where was the article which shows that the average 360 owner spends 60% more time in online gaming compared to a PS3 owner. YOu are right.. thats hardcore, lol!
Used this for Res 5 demo at the time, half worked ok.
my xbox did it 7 years ago
so. my pc has been doing that for longer then 7 years. guess that means i win
who gives a rats as$ until its standard and smooth, that looked weak and slow xbox is popular because of how fluid it is across games and talking with out hicups, its also not as dull its more lively, PS will get there but by the time they do at this point what will ms have up its sleeve as its next cool feature
This feature is not old, if anyone is refering to games like RE5 or rainbow six or anyother game with a invite system like RE5 or Raindow six, yes with those games you had to send the invite from the xmb friendlist and accept it from their aswell but you had to have the game disc in first. now with this game and i believe dirt 2 has this feature like CODMW2( I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT DIRT 2 AFTER I POSTED THIS) the only other game i believe to use this feature which came sep 09 after 3.0 update, u can join a game a call of duty no matter what game u are playing by clicking on join and the system asks if u wanna quit this game, then put in CODMW2 and click ok and it takes u into lobby straigt away, without fycking about with any menu system. i dont believe any other games other than these 2 games have used it like this, so please stop getting it confused with RE5 or anyother game with invite system like because it simply isnt the same.
"Welcome Sony! Welcome aboard. Come on in and have a seat. Would you like something to drink? Perhaps a seat with a nice cushion? Fabulous." "Let me introduce you to your new roommate. His name is XBOX360. Now XBOX360 has been here for a few years, and he'll show you around the place so that you can get acclimated to the way things work with Cross Game Chat and Invites. Yeah... THAT XBOX360. The one that trained you on Achievements into Trophies. And Facebook. And Twitter. He'll also preview you on how to communicate with people on PSN with microphones. But we'll have to get more people on PSN before that happens." "Don't worry. You'll get along fine. Black and White can get along just peachy. Just don't mess up the place. :-)"
The Xbox got massaacred by the PS2 (2001-2006) The Xbox 360 is trying so hard to become a PS2 but it keeps on flopping, without HALO, the xbox has no identity. NONE. Did you just start gaming this gen? Achievements/Trophies in games are nothing new. They are just being posed as a next-gen feature. Facebook and Twitter were possible from day 1 on the PS3 courtesy of the the internal internet browser. Xbox avatars are Mii Rip-offs The 360's NXE's user interface is an XMB Rip-off Everything, that was touted as an xbox exclusive found they way onto the PS3 without SONY BEGGING LIKE DESPERATE. <-----------M$(The real losers) HYPTAL will FLOP like (overpriced)HD-DVD because more people will be supporting SONY. M$ has offered nothing to the industry since they entered. They are ruining it with the 360 and are manipulating game developers with their vile tatics. Oh yeah did I forget to get to mention:- You only have 365 days left and counting with your errorbox. When I put it like that it must hurt.
Welcome TheTruth2009! Welcome aboard. Come on in and have a seat. Would you like something to drink? Perhaps a seat with a nice cushion? Fabulous." "Let me introduce you to your new roommate. His name is PC. Now PC has been here for several years, and he'll show you around the place so that you can get acclimated to the way things work with Cross Game Chat and Invites. Yeah... THAT PC. The one that began Achievements, Trophies, Gamertags, and everything else the Xbox 360 has 'created.' And Facebook. And Twitter. He'll also preview you on how to communicate with people around the world using a microphone since you seem to think that the Xbox 360 did it first. But we'll have to get more people to not burn their house down using the Xbox 360 first." See what I did there?
if other games other than CODMW2 or dirt 2 have the EXACTLY the same invite system please list em because it irritates that if this same feature exists then why no 1 is asking sony to get mandatory for developers or why is no 1 talking about it. because no 1 talks there are a lot of people that dont know about this feature.
