Naughty Dog outs cross game chat for next PS3 firmware update

Wednesday, 14th October 2009 22:16 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Oops. Looks like Naughty Dog has outed cross game voice chat for the next PS3 firmware update.

Over on the official PlayStation messageboard, a Naughty Dog developer going by the PSN handle “ReklissAbandon” let the cat out of the bag before having his reply deleted.

Here’s what was posted, thanks to Wearetheinternetz:

I think they wanted people to have fun and ejoy[sic] the show since all dead players can talk to each other no matter what team you are on. But I will suggest it anyway. Not to mention that the next PS3 firmware update is going to allow cross game chat. So if players use that instead of in game communication then they would also be able to communicate enemies[sic] positions.

See, didn’t we say it was gonna happen? Er um, well our source did, rather.

Thanks, Mescalineeyes.

    I reckon thats the point though… That soon it won’t be such a ripoff, becuase… All the features are there, and it’s cheaper.

    Maybe I am stupid or something, but I thoguht thats how developing platforms worked!

    Compared to Microsoft’s obsession with peripherals, Sony are practically a charity.

    It must be quite a task to add this sort of feature into a network infrastructure and OS which was never built to support it. Kudos to Sony for getting it in there though – next stop, cross game custom soundtrack support. :)

    If this really happen and it’s 100% functional, I don’t see how Microsoft could continue to charge for XBox Live.
