According to CydoniaX, both voice messaging and cross game chat are in development for the PS3 console.
To quote, via PS Blog: When are we getting game launching abilities for every multiplayer game in the PS3 library? Why is it that the most basic of features for both the XMB and HOME get prioritized and delivered before all the extra stuff?
1) XMB - Voice Chat across games
2) XMB - Voice messaging(30 sec clip)
3) HOME - Game Launching for all games
Deliver what the fans want first and foremost then surprise us with all this Xi stuff.
CydoniaX replies: All that stuff is still in development, game launching started with Warhawk and should be supported by all future game spaces now. It takes time, but we haven't forgotten about all the stuff that our users really want!
