PS3 Cross Game Chat Confirmed?

You know, rumors hold a lot more water when they come from an actual source for all the world to see.

Up until now, the idea of cross-game chat arriving for the PlayStation 3 has been entirely rumor-infused, with nothing in the way of official evidence to back it up. However, if you check around the Internet, multiple sources are referring to a recent comment made by Sony's James Thorpe at the official European PlayStation Blog, which is most encouraging. It regards to the question, "When is there going to be cross-game chat? You can't hide it forever," Thorpe replied:

"I wish I could just give you a date, I really do!! Trust me when I say that as soon as I hear from ‘up top’ I will be shouting about it and making myself the most popular person on the blog."

Well, if they weren't prepared to announce anything yet, you may have just made yourself the most unpopular person on the blog in Sony's eyes, but we doubt it's a major transgression. The point is, this allows us to all but confirm that the long-awaited feature is on the way, and hopefully, it'll arrive soon. It's not coming with the next firmware update, though - we've already detailed firmware update 3.10 - so perhaps it won't be ready to go until next year. Either way, it's good to know one of the most-requested online features will make the PSN experience that much more enjoyable.

In one year, I went through 5 of them.

I got rid of them both, and bought PS3's instead.

Sadly, my PS3 just died, and I decided to replace it with a new slim.

Alot to some folks, and not to others. I have around 1000 trophies for example. No. I keep them in a well ventilated space. My 360 woes began on launch day, and I got tired of replacing them. Eventually MS fixed them for free, but after one of them came back from the repair shop, it broke in 2 uses. End of my 360 story.

Banky A -

My kids and I play certain games together, so we have a few PS3's in our house. Games such as Uncharted 2 have nearly convinced my wife to join us. As far as "how" goes, during the housing boom here in the US, there was alot of money to spend on multiple gaming and theater systems.

Who cares about the Xbox fans! They're a bunch of idiots who are paying a yearly fee for Skype and think that they have one up on another console. Cross game chat or even XMB chat would be really nice for those who really enjoy online gaming. It simplifies things tremendously.

pardon my ignorance but I will admit I'm relative new to online gaming and it's terminology. So what exactly is the cross game chat? From the name alone I'm assuming it has something to do with talking to other players while playing a game yourself. Does it have to do with players enjoying a complete different game than you are?

I dont think it necessarily makes the games any better, I think they did it for two reasons 1) to show that you do not have to pay for online service for it to be excellent 2) It gives XBL one less "advantage" over PSN. Also check this scenario out- You're stuck on Psycho Mantis in MGS4 and your friend has already beat her you could just ask your friend how to beat her if you wanted.

i don't really voice chat much with the friends on my list... we just exchange a couple of text messages most of the time... if i am using a headset to talk to them, i must already be playing a game with them...

i don't know, this sounds like it benefits those social types who like facebook and twitter... and who like to have a bajillion friends on their friends list to talk to and chat with...

i'm more of the quiet guy who prefers messaging unless i am playing a game with said person... so, while i see a huge demand for this feature, it's not something i am eagerly waiting for... i will probably start using it though if i find it worth my time... but right now, i don't envision myself using it...

For everyone asking why this is a much requested feature here is a little scenario that happens a lot with me and my friends.

I live 150 miles away from the people I know in real life now because of a job move. I don't get to talk to them much and sometimes I don't want to use my minutes on my cell phone or take the time to send text messages or send messages to them via the PS3 messaging system because I am a)playing a story driven game that I do not want to take the time out of to construct a message hence taking me fully out of the experience, b) playing a game online where there is no pause and I don't feel like hiding in a corner while I make said message and my friend is in an entirely different game.

Now, I see that they are online but in a game that I don't own or don't feel like playing, but I do want to see if they want to set up a game later on COD:MW2 or maybe some NHL10. So, without pulling my self away from the great story of Dragon Age, I quickly hit the talk button ask "Bob" if he is down for some Killzone 2 or MW2 later because he is playing Uncharted 2 and I don't own it. He says yes we set a time and off we go. I'm back into the Dragon Age story with little distraction, he is back to doing what you do in Uncharted 2 we meet up in something else in an hour and neither of use used our minutes, text messages, or even had to pick up the phone at all.

These things might not be a big deal to everyone but to some people they are and that is why this is such a requested service.

I'll take any new features they want to add, whether I'll use them frequently or not.

Though I personally would like more options for customization, specifically concerning the XMB. I understand why they put the extra store icons there, it would just be nice to be able to turn them off if I wanted, or to place them elsewhere on the list in that category.

Oh and if at all possible, enable us to use the web browser while in game. that'd be tit.

I don't think the ps3 could do that. Sony's biggest mistake with the ps3 was that they only put 256 RAM memory, and with only 256 RAM I don't think the ps3 can handle an in-game browser.

It still puzzels me why Sony set out to make such an impressive piece of hardware but only choose to put in 256 RAM.

Oh, I don't know it might have something to do with losing $300-$400 a unit sold at launch and XDR memory being somewhat expensive since the PS3 is the only major system to use it. XDR memory is very fast compared to other kinds of memory, but the production volumes remain relatively low, and so it costs a bit more.

However I might also point out that the PS3 has 256MB of system memory and 256MB of video memory. This is in effect a 512MB memory architecture with a fixed partition between system and video at 256MB. The 360 uses a 512MB unified memory architecture. However in practice a significant portion of that memory on the 360 is devoted to video leading to a situation that is almost identical to the PS3s hard partitioned memory architecture.

Compared to a current PC 256MB seems like very little, but remember it's 256MB of dedicated system memory that has very high performance. Besides, the PS3 isn't a desktop computer it's a game console, so there's no need to pack several gigs of RAM just to run the OS.

I just hope Sony does it right, and implement the feature ONTO the PSN. Custom soundtracks is supposedly "available" on the PSN already, yet only like 4 games support it on ps3. Sony better make the feature available on everygame. But if they take the same route they did with custom soundtracks, then I rather Sony not do it all. Do it right or don't do it at all.

Custom sound tracks are supported by the system's firmware, but it's up to the game developer to decide whether or not to include the function. Why is that a bad situation? By supporting it in the firmware Sony provides the necessary functions in a common manner that all game devs can use. But at the same time doing custom sound tracks that way also leaves artistic control with the developer - they decide whether or not custom sound is allowed.

Didn’t some guy from Naughty Dog also make a post that Cross game chat was in the works (then the comment was quickly removed)? Please, please, please be true. This and NetFlix are the 2 features I’ve really been wanting on PS3. It makes setting up game invites with your friends so much easier.

Fanboy or not, you HAVE to appreciate what Sony has been doing lately. They’re on a tear, really stepping it up with the games, features and price cut.

Actually, just thought about this: Reckon Sony should let Skype available on the PS3 - for CGC as well. They've already enabled Skype on the PSP.

Skype would be much more neater & maybe easier to include than PSN CGC, and it definately sounds much more clearer than XBL's Private / Party Chat.

The feature is useless unless developers take advantage of it. Sony should make it mandatory for devs to include cross-game chat in their games with multiplayer.

Tuesday, November 17, 2009 @ 9:44:33 PM

No, they absolutely should not do that. If Sony were to make it mandatory they would be effectively reducing the memory available to PS3 games from that point forward. Every feature that Sony exposes in the firmware for in-game use requires memory. Those features that are optional such as custom soundtracks consume no memory when they ar not used.

By leaving the cross game chat feature as optional, Sony allows developers to decide whether they wish to allow cross game chat, and whether they wish to sacrifice the memory required to allow it.

It makes me laugh, people were so down on Sony for 'forcing' things on consumers and developers in the past, and yet here you (and others) are demanding that Sony force a feature on users and developers again.

I didn't mean all devs should do it, games with multiplayer will need to incorporate it. If it was to be optional then I can guarantee you that no developer with games that supports multiplayer/co-op will take advantage of it especially third-party devs. If Naughty Dog can incorporate twitter, a useless feature, and Machinima then why not cross-game chat. Its easy if devs include cross-game chat in their priorities into bringing a good multiplayer experience, but if its optional then the feature is an afterthought for them.

Adding trophies to games doesn't even remotely compare to the complexity and scale of adding cross game voice chat, so it's not really a fair comparison. But you're right, I don't think we'd have as many games with Trophies had it not been made mandatory.

Custom sound tracks were implemented in firmware ages ago. Burnout Paradise was even patched to include the feature. Why other developers don't use it? I don't know, but It's there, and it's easy enough that it could be patched into a game without affecting the game. Perhaps we ought to be asking developers to include the feature instead of whining about Sony not making it mandatory?

While cooping with friends in Demon's Souls we constantly have to push the PS button to text directions & things like where should we go next in the chat room which is extremely annoying & leaves us open to getting attacked while we are texting.There is no Bluetooth Headset compatibility in Demon's souls or Dragon Age Origins & when playing coop which is a big part of the game, being able to voice communicate with other party members would be a big benifit as well as more enjoyable. For example, you could discuss attack strategies or instantly verbally warn someone what is around the corner whereas using text would take too long.
