Actually there is a reason, ms owns the patent..

But they might have made a deal, blu-ray for party chat.. People think skype was coming, nope ms has that too...

I'm hoping thats the case. Skype I could care less about as I have my computer and facetime for that.

Even if we have to pay for PS plus I'd be ok with that aslong as we can use a party chat feature.

I will buy a ps4 to play singleplayer only so party chat doesn't interest me at all.

If MS owns that patent then why the hell is it called party chat on PSVita then?

Because party chat on the PS Vita is limited to only those in the party chat. You can't decide to call another person up to chat on different game. That's the difference between the built in feature and a app.

But I could be wrong as I dont use it but that was the impression I got from the feature. Also the cross license agreement with blu-ray and cross game chat could be been done well before the PS Vita ever launched. Next Gen game consoles are started being worked on right after the new system is launched so anything could have happened.

Well, technically you can. It's not like the party HAS to interact outside of the app.

 

If I launch the Party App and start chatting with you, I can then load up my copy of Ragnarok Odyssey or something.

 

And then you could go play Soul Sacrifice. And we'd still be talking.

Well that's good to know, but a useless feature for me. I hate talking to people. I dont like being talked to death. If that was the case I would call my mother and ask how is her day haha

That's good to know hopefuly they will add that feature to the ps4. I know it sounds really minor, but it's actually a big deal for some people.
