Rumors over on the N4G forums state that PS3 cross-game voice chat’s being held back because of EA, which has supposedly threatened to pull support for PS3 should the service occur.
To make a long story short, EA has confirmed to Kotaku that the allegations are false.
“Not no-how, not no-way did that ever happen,” stated Jeff Brown, EA’s vice president of corporate communications. “This is a total fabrication – total nonsense. We think voice chat is an extremely cool feature and added it to Madden/ PS3.
“We support cross-game voice on other systems and would be happy to do that on any console.”
Sony’s senior director of corporate communications Patrick Seybold also responded, stating that the rumor was “frankly not true. ”
