PS4 supports cross-game chat

25 February 2013

As if what the PlayStation 4 can do doesn't excite gamers enough already, another major feature that has been demanded by PS3 users for years is now officially coming to PS4: cross game chat.

The news comes from an official press release from Sony mentioning, "PS4 also enhances social spectating by enabling gamers to broadcast their gameplay in real-time to friends using live internet streaming services such as Ustream. During live broadcasts, friends can make comments on the streamed gameplay and, if a gamer gets stuck on a challenging level, friends can also join the game in completely new ways. For example, friends can offer health potions or special weapons when a player needs them most during actual gameplay.

Furthermore, users can connect their Facebook account with Sony Entertainment Network account. Through PS4, users are able to deepen their connections through co-op play or 'cross-game chat'."

At the moment, the PS3 does not support cross game chat, but the PlayStation Vita does, so it really isn't shocking to hear (especially with 8GB of RAM) that the PS4 is capable of such a feature.
