Today Kotaku (linked above) followed up on yesterday's rumor from N4G insider Super_Secret on why Cross-Game Chat is currently missing in action on the PlayStation 3 console.
To quote: Rather than jump to conclusions, we decided to contact the two parties involved for comment on the situation.
First to respond was Jeff Brown, EA's vice president of corporate communication.
"Not no-how, not no-way did that ever happen. This is a total fabrication - total nonsense. We think voice chat is an extremely cool feature and added it to Madden/ PS3."
Brown then added, "We support cross-game voice on other systems and would be happy to do that on any console."
Soon after Brown responded to our inquiry, Sony's senior director of corporate communications Patrick Seybold also responded, keeping things short and sweet. "This is rumor and frankly not true."
Another corporate cover-up like the PS3 Slim's existance, or is the rumor officially debunked now? Feel free to comment below!
