House: Cross-Game Chat is a “side issue”

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe boss Andrew House has said that Cross-Game Chat is a “side issue”.

We revealed earlier this week that Sony’s official site listed Cross-Game Chat as a feature of PlayStation Plus, before being told in a statement from Sony that it wasn’t.

“I think that’s a separate, side-issue from PlayStation Plus right now,” said House, speaking to Eurogamer. “I don’t think we’ve talked about that for that reason.”

Asked if it was something Sony was considering, all House would say is:

“That’s not really something we’re talking about at this show, before adding that Sony would talk to fans about this. ” But not right now? “No.”

PlayStation Plus launches worldwide on June 29, and costs £39.99 for a year’s subscription, while a 90-day sub costs £11.99.
