Charging for cross game chat? how is that even possible sony!

36 replies 16 views Edited Dec 21, 2009

Sony! How is it even possible for them to charge for cross game chat! C'mon, what if I buy premium PSN service and half of my friends don't, then whats the point of having cross game chat if i cannot chat with half of my friends who dont have it... Heck what if all my friends don't buy the premium service, that means I cannot use cross game chat therfore rendering it useless, it would be stupid of sony to charge for it, they have to be high or somthing, because a feature like this should be free!

NOTHING IS OFFICIAL, its just a survey they show off to the corporate guys and pitch the plan, there are probably several different survey plans like that.

They`re not going to charge, if they did, I`d stick to team-chat only. I really don`t care about talking cross-game unless one of my friends are on that team.

It does sound a bit weird, if the majority of your friends don't upgrade then it makes it pointless.. If there gonna incorporate CGC they should do it like LIVE, leave 1 on 1 free but charge for party chat.

I wouldn't say never.The existence of the survey proves that they're obviously considering it,although whether is happens or not still remains to be seen.
Personally I think that they're considering adding it to their premium service packages because they feel that it'll serve as a very strong incentive that my urge those who could care less about the bulk of the premium packages contents into coming out of pocket just for the inclusion of XGC.

I would think that the XGC would be a standard feature with the PSN?

Woah! Calm down everybody. You make it sound like the most important issue ever. Not everything in life is free, and you guys have really gotten greedy. Sony should just have made online gaming cost in the beginning, now everybody expects all Sony additions, new features to be free, and if not. Then maadness!!! riots, city's destroyed, (i know WT*?) Do you think the implementation of cross-game voice chat and other features is gonna be costless for Sony, they have to spend time and effort and that costs money. And they still lose about $40 on every PS3 Slim sold.

They have to make a profit right? Well guess what. YEAH! And for all people that doesn't wanna pay for the service. Stop! Complaining. OMG! It's not like you are losing anything, everything you have now will remain free and the PS3 is already a great console that's why you chose to buy it.
