Some people have been clamoring for cross-game chat on the PlayStation 3 for while now. Well, you can stop crying for it because it's not going to happen. The reason, as IGN shows
, is that the PS3 lacks the necessary ram to allow this feature. Once a game gets a hold of that ram on the PS3, it doesn't give it back.
Now, the Vita has double the ram of the PS3 so it does have the cross-game chat capability the PlayStation 3 lacks. So if you want that feature on a Sony platform, the Vita is the way to go.
