Rumor: PS3 Cross-Game Chat Restricted to Paid PSN Subscribers


Sponsored Links
235w ago - Sony has previously confirmed that PS3 cross-game voice chat is coming, however, the question now is whether it will be offered only to paid PSN subscribers as part of their upcoming service in 2010.

Today GamesThirst.com (linked above) believes that is the case, based on an excerpt from the latest issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine (PTOM).

To quote: "Aside from the 3D goodness, cross-game party chat is the obvious "next big feature," even though it might be restricted to paid [PSN] subscribers."

Earlier in the same thread speaking about motion controls, the writer said this:

"Sony's current service is one of the PS3's best features, so we'd begrudgingly welcome a revamped PSN with extra subscriber functionality, like cross-game-chat and exclusive PSN downloads."

So what do you make of all this? Would you pay for cross-game chat on Sony's online service?

A better question would be "how much do we have to pay if it comes?"

how much is everyone willing to pay for such extra content. That was always the advantage over Microsoft but we all know that everything behind the scene cost a lot of money.

surely i'm not gonna pay for that feature, hahaha i hope the ps3 will be hacked soon and maybe it will end in CFW

but there is always another option: Skype
you can use skype on your PC and even on your psp 2000 and higher

so there is a way around crosschat, but hey, i believed sony said PSN was free?!

how are you gonna take something that's been free and charge people for it and people been sayin they want cross game chat since the ps3 came out.. now they saying they charging people for psn which has been free for ever, to have that feature and exclusive download for that i have to say screw you sony!
paying is completely optional. if you dont want to pay you can still use everything we currently have for free. they wont take anything we have now thats free and make it paid. all that stays free..

so if i want to cross game chat with a friend, will he not be able to because only 1 of us is a subscriber ? .... this pay thing is lame .... this should be a standard feature.
