Will We Ever See Cross Game Chat on the PS3?

A shocking announcement by Sony during their E3 press conference, confirmed that the PlayStation Vita would have full on cross-game chat support. So what’s the deal with the lack of cross-game chat support on the PS3?

The story is too old to be commented.

I think we might get an epic PS3 firmware update with these features soon when Vita Releases. think about it. it would make sense.

golsilva2689d ago

agree right when vita launches expect a new firmware update to allow compatibility with vita and the new cross chat function

NewMonday2689d ago

not sure but maybe they cant put it on the PS3 for some reason, maybe memory or chat channel issues.

jadenkorri2689d ago

i doubt it, its a minor feature that i do enjoy on the 360, and would def enjoy on the ps3. If they dont release it soon, its gonna be pointless putting it out with the announcements of next gen.

Since ps3 release some desperate people are claiming that soon there will be an update with crossgamechat.
I say bullshit, I think it isnt possible, because else Sony would have already released it. These claims doesnt help anyone.

Its bc of the limited RAM. Also bc Sony is a hardware company. M$ is a software company, they make better faster software. This includes an XMB that takes half the memory as the PS3s XMB.

Ive also heard a rumor that M$ own the patent to crossgame chat, but who knows

I think it might be possible on Vita and not PS3 because they gave the PS3 less memory to perform background functions, and gave most of it to devs, which is too late to change now lol.

They prob gave Vita a specific amount of memory for background functions such as this, which is probably more than the PS3 got for that.

I wouldn't be surprised if Vita actually has more memory than PS3 anyway..

captain-obvious2688d ago

well seeing it on the PSV is a good sign

joeorc2688d ago

that keeps saying the PS3 cannot do "cross game chat"

that is bogus, why because it already does ..you may ask how?

simple if you logged into playstation Home you would know you can. we can already do group chat of 8 people while playing games in playstation Home.

unless the game needs the r2 button you can cross voice chat cross Playstation Home games

And yet you'd think the announcement of it during their apology, which came along with a new 3rd party video service, would have been nothing but a megaton.

Though thinking about it might have overshadowed everything else. Given how much people beg for the damn thing.

Maybe they are saving it till the PSV is out.

jadenkorri2689d ago

beg but don't get.... i want the feature, but its getting to the point that's its too late.

"Ive also heard a rumor that M$ own the patent to crossgame chat, but who knows"

I've heard this rumour before, if true I imagine MS only have patent on this for consoles not handhelds, hence why its on vita and not PS3.

Assclown20 stop with your rubbish the XMB uses 65mb of ram no where near half.

Yea it's crazy how the Vita has Cross game chat but the PS3 doesn't.

Maybe Sony will let us hook up our PSV to our PS3's and just use it's chat that way?

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

I think, later it will have.

PS3 with PS Vita users in the same lobby.

Peaceful_Jelly2689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

If Vita has crosss game chat and PS3 doesn't is simply because PS3 can't do cross-game chat. PS3 is doing stuff like 3D when the console wasn't created to render 3D to begin with and that kind of stuff takes resources from the console. You know, like ram...

dangert2689d ago

im startiing to believe this sony have known for years what we want and i think they won't say its not possible as they fear the response

outwar60102689d ago

sony has known for years but nothing

joeorc2688d ago

the PS3 does indeed do cross game chat..it's only in playstation Home at the moment for access but it's there..i got a disagree in my post above but sadly that person who ever they are does not use playstaion Home because if they did they would know im telling the truth!

so if the playstation 3 can Run Home an have 8 player group chat an do cross voice playstation Home "game" chat that shows for a fact yes it can!

people that are disagreeing are doing it to disagree are doing a disservice by telling people it cannot do it because for a fact it can.

it seems unlike some here I do use playstation Home an I do know what Im talking about.

just_looken2689d ago (Edited 2689d ago )

FYI THE PS3 3D IS LIKE THE PC'S NVIDIA JUST UPDATED THE PS3 LIKE THE PC CARDS THERE IS VERY LITTLE RAM UPGRADE USAGE. ALSO THE DEVS STILL ARE NOT FORCED TO PUT FEATURES IN AND SUPPORT EXTRAS IF YOU LOOK BACK IN 2009 THERE WAS RUMORS AND SOME CONFORMATION OF CROSS GAME CHAT BUT IT WASN'T PUT IN BECAUSE EA WOULDN'T SUPPORT IT. READ B4 U BASH.
