The PlayStation Network has made great strides over the past few years but there's one feature that many online aficionados continue to miss.
It seems that with every new firmware update, there comes along with it the rumor that Sony will finally be implementing cross-title voice chat. However, that rumor has always fallen through; some believed it'd arrive with the recent update 3.00, but once again, gamers everywhere were disappointed. Will we be disappointed again when firmware 3.10 drops next month? Because the rumor is back again ; only this time, it comes from a supposedly reliable VG247 source that says cross-title voice chat will be available "by the end of October." They won't reveal the source but they say it's legitimate and if it is, it'll make plenty of people very happy. It's not a make-or-break feature but it's always a benefit, and in all honesty, it probably should've been available well before now. Now, if I could only find a way to make my headset sync up with the PS3 Slim, I'd be all set…it doesn't seem to be working, so perhaps this feature won't matter to me.
Anyway, this could very well be another set-up for disappointment, but we're hoping this source is indeed telling the truth. Now's the time.
