A shocking announcement by Sony during their E3 press conference, confirmed that the PlayStation Vita would have full on cross-game chat support. So what’s the deal with the lack of cross-game chat support on the PS3?
Sony confirmed that Vita will not only have cross game chat, but the powerful handheld will also support cloud saving and Sony’s new Near social network. From the sounds of things, the PlayStation Vita is getting full on support from Sony and it almost feels that this could very well be their next-gen gaming system to get Sony’s dedicated attention. Why has Sony opted to leave the PS3 cross-game chat-less, knowing that this is what gamers want the most –according to the PlayStation Share website? At one point during the conference, I seriously believed that cross-game chat would be announced for the PS3 following the confirmation of cross-game chat on the Vita.
The PlayStation Vita releases this holiday season for $249.99 for the Wi-Fi only and $299.99 for the 3G/Wi-Fi enabled which is fueled by the At&t network.
