Midway has let slip that the online features included in the PlayStation 3 version of Blacksite: Area 51 will be somewhat limited compared to its Xbox 360 counterpart.
As reported by IGN, the Xbox 360 version allows users to compete in both ranked and unranked matches, and features full voice support for quick and instant communication between each player.
However, the company this week announced that the PS3 version would not include all of the above. "Basically, the PS3 supports the ability to host, search, and join – that’s it. All of the other functionality did not make it to PS3: ranked / leader boards, match making, voice chat, private slots, etc.", a Midway representative stated.
Blacksite: Area 51 will be released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in North America on November 5, with a European release arriving slightly earlier on October 26.
