The Official Playstation Magazine has an interesting little rumor. The rumor is that cross game chat will be available to PAID PSN subscribers only. We hope this is not the case and it is just a poor rumor.
In the latest issue of PTOM, thereâ€™s a thread about PlayStation 3â€™s â€œNext Techâ€, and in it, slew of details were divulged concerning PSN.
After talking about the possible 3D offerings in 2010, the mag delves into cross-game chat.
â€œAside from the 3D goodness, cross-game party chat is the obvious â€œnext big feature,â€ even though it might be restricted to paid [PSN] subscribers.â€
Earlier in the same thread speaking about motion controls, the writer said this:
â€œSonyâ€™s current service is one of the PS3â€™s best features, so weâ€™d begrudgingly welcome a revamped PSN with extra subscriber functionality, like cross-game-chat and exclusive PSN downloads.â€</blockquote>
