Playstation Network Party Chat

38 Replies 1,314 Views Created 17-03-2012

Sony People, I think it would be excellent if you were to make a new update that includes PARTY CHAT. As you should already know, The xbox console supports party chat, this means that you can talk to your friends no matter whatever game you are playing, thus giving them an enjoyable time; however here on Playstation 3, it is only a certain amount of games that u can talk to your friends in, and if u want to be in a voice/video chat, you have to stay at the main menu, which is not very appealing at all

Also it would be more pleasurable for you to add in the support of mutiple accounts being able to sign it at once. For example, if someone was to be playing Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Online, and another person was at their house and had A PSN Account and wanted to play with them on the same console, then they could both sign and play online and level up together.

Furthermore, i believe that You were to establish this, the popularity of playstation 3 would boost up to imaginary levels

I am looking forward to hearing your response

No it did not, it got rid of the idiots who screamed down the mic.



 

Yes it did. Gone are the days where you could get some great banter with other gamers on Xbox Live, now lobbies are basically silent because everybody want to be in party chat.

 

The mute button was a simple and effective way to cut out any idiots.

Still have loads of banter with my friends in party

-

I had all none friends muted any way so it makes no odds where I chat as I don't hear any one but friends.

-

One of the best fetures of the 360 IMO is party chat as we can cacth up with each other whilst playing seperate games.

-

No interest in talking to any random johny ot timmy.

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

Party Chat for me personally is not a big deal, I only use it on the 360 when me and my friends are playing the same game, if im playing another game on my own then I prefer to be left alone.

 

There is nothing worse than trying to play a single player game and then have somebody chatting away in your ear as your trying to keep up with the storyline.

 

Eeverybody bangs on about party chat as though its the best things since wholesale carpet but I remember when Xbox Live didnt have it and all you could do was private chat with a friend. Xbox Live worked just as well then, if not better,  as it does now IMO.

If Sony want to improve lobbies being dead they just need to included a free headset similar to what Microsoft offer. It's the age old addage of using something if you have it but not if you have to go and buy it.

 

Party Chat is ok but only if your in the same game.

They cant do a party chat on a ps3 because of to little ram. the internal ram is only 256 and the video ram is only 256. There isnt any room for the party chat. but i think that they could just do a type of chat that you can be in the video chat and go play a game. they could the simply make a smaller box with the video and then you can play on call of duty for instense. Also i think that by removing the text chat room might help cause i find it a pain to have to text everything.:Sniper: Go to Http://www.youtube.com/tspec24 for more on this.

There has already been some games that done multiple sign-ins on the same consoles, It may be down to developers choice and not actually anything to do with the console or any limitations as i can remember reading somewhere that you can have have 7 people playing on the same console, (Needs verified).

 

As for those talking about "lack of RAM", well take a little look back to the 80's and see what the Commodore 64 was able to do with just 64bytes. from those 64bytes you got awesome games like the Last Ninja, Sly Spy, Robocop.. and those were tape cassette based games (dont say you dont know what that is LOL)..  so what Im getting at is You'd be very surprised at what these tech guys can do with just 64bytes... even if there was a spare 128K or 256K!!

 

Lets not forget that the PS3 when it launched had NO 3d... yet through a firmware update we now have it as well as lots of other little additions so you can't rule it out unless the guys who made the console say otherwise.

 

Although i have to say i was expecting it on the PS3 with the arrival of the PS Vita... hasn't happend yet, but it still could.

 

 

As for actually having "party chat", as i remember on xbox360 being in a party was ok when playing the same game so you didnt have to listen to anyone else nerd raging at you etc, but when ever someone joined who was playing a different game it started to lag a little, then lag more with each new person who joined the party chat.

 

I'm not bothered about having it or not as i dont see a problem with playing the same game and using the already existing chat system in game... though it would be nice to be able to use the party chat to run through a single player game (Skyrim for example) with some friends who are playing it as well.

I hope CGC never appears in the future on PS4 or whatever. A lot of people say it's killing in game voice comms on the 360 because people are privately chatting fart and not communicating on the game their playing.

Why are you questioning me? You've been here long enough to know it's true

 

However, because I'm feeling in a generous mood:

I would question AND challenge GOD and everything under GOD.... BWAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA.... ok, no i was just asking for you to post the link so everyone can see for themselves.

 

But, I wouldn't rule it out in future... even if that future means PS4.. I really did expect it to be added in a FW when the Vita was released seeing as it has it.. you know all this talk of seemless connectivity.. or was that something else.. anyway back to Starwars the force unleashed 2 i got from the store for under a 10er!!

With the PS4 hype train starting to build momentum, I would not expect too much in the way of new features for the PS3. The PS4 will have this feature and so much more and there will be many reasons to upgrade to the next gen :)

^ Many useless apps and addons that we dont need no doubt. The PS3 freezes enough as it is just through using the browser.. Not to mention the lag when you open up the XMB in certain games. All i want is a console, not a pc or a machine that lets me ***** about cutting and adding effects to pictures.. just concentrate on getting the best in there for the games.

Most recently I have played both MW3 on the 360 and PS3 and to be honest I found the voice comms on the PS3 version to be far clearer than the 360 one.

That as with Xbox depends on the the game and who your playing with. Its nothing to do with Sony or even MS for that matter.
