PS3 cross-game chat might cost you

Cross-game chat is a sorely missed feature on PSN, but Sony has hinted at adding the highly anticipated feature to its online service. Unfortunately, it just might come at a price according to The Official PlayStation Magazine.

“Aside from the 3D goodness, cross-game party chat is the obvious ‘next big feature,’ even though it might be restricted to paid [PSN] subscribers,” said the magazine regarding new additions to the PS3.

Sony is quick to add that all the current features of PSN will remain free and that only new features such as the cross-game chat may be available for a monthly subscription fee.
