Where is my cross game voice chat!?

So many features on PS3 user’s wish lists for future firmware upgrades. And on the top of everyone’s list is Facebook, right? Well, of course it is!

Sony has recently revealed on the official Playstation blog that the upcoming firmware 3.10, to be released “soon,” will provide Facebook support. So, as Sony continues to play catch up with Microsoft’s Xbox dashboard update, one can’t help but feel that the wish list is now complete. I mean, there isn’t any other means of social communication we need on the PS3. Nope, none at all.

Hit the jump for a preview video of this dream come true.

  1. I have to admit that Sony is doing a much better job of keeping up with Microsoft. Good job guys. :-)

    But, what if the PSN update comes out BEFORE the Xbox Live update?! *gasp*

  3. It always had Facebook support (!) through it’s browser, and therefore has been better than Microsoft in that regard since launch.

    Chris speaks the truth here, gentlemen.

  5. @chris: Come on man. The PS3 browser is a joke. Never has surfing the Internet been so excrutiatingly slow.

    I dont now about you, but I’ve had no issues with the PS3 browser. It’s no worse than Firefox 3.5

  7. If I had one of those PS3 chatpads or had a wireless mouse/keyboard hooked up, I probably wouldn’t mind the browser.

  8. @Jordan:
    You are a rare case than. Everyone I have talked to hates the browser because of how slow it is. I don’t understand how one of the most powerful pieces of hardware ever created can be so horrible at doing something as simply as surfing the net. It’s perplexing.

  9. Either way, I’m sure there will be quite a huge difference between using the browser and using the Facebook app on the PS3. Just think about it in comparison to the iPhone. Sure you can use the Safari internet browser to surf the web on the iPhone and do a bunch of stuff, but apps created for specific functions like Facebook, Banking, and Tweeting, are so much faster.

    I don’t even know why I’m talking about this so much. I don’t have a facebook account and I don’t plan on getting one anytime soon.
