That may soon come to an end – if comments of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe managing director Ray Maguire are to be believed. Speaking on the momentum of the console, which just beat the 1 million unit milestone in the UK, Maguire noted that sales of the PlayStation 3 would be bolstered by “in-game communication”, to be implemented via firmware update 2.4 this summer.
However, Sony refused to clarify whether or not the addition of in-game communication means integration with the XMB interface, so it isn’t clear whether the update will be limited to simple voice chat and messaging or whether it will allow you to invite players directly into your games.
