PS3 Cannot Do Cross-Game-Chat, Says Sony

After 5 long years, Sony comes clean and admits the PlayStation 3 cannot do cross-game-chat, and explained why.

 

According to Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida, games are given priority over all else when distributing the RAM, which results in little to no room for features such as voice chat. Also, the feature cannot be changed, so don’t expect to see an update in the future that’ll introduce it.

 

“Once a game gets RAM we never give it back,†Yoshida told Eurogamer, “It’s not possible to retrofit something like that after the fact.â€

 

“The game has to use its own memory to do in-game voice chat. There’s always voice chat in the game. But it’s a part of a game feature. It’s not a part of an OS feature. That’s the reason in terms of the ability to have voice chat across different games.â€

 

Almost 2 years ago we sent live a rumor that made it all over gaming’s web, where PlayStation: The Official Magazine said PS3 cross-game-chat would be a feature exclusive to PS Plus members.

 

This will must be disappointing news for many.

I actually never really cared about this feature anyway. I just couldn't see myself talking to someone else playing a different game. Why would you?

 

Wouldn't it also allow you to talk to people in the same game, but on the other team?

 

Pub rooms full of spies!

No RAM, no chat. Simple oversight their engineers did not consider. Even if they could get it to work, with how little RAM the consoles have it would makes games which use all of the memory run like shit.
