    ps3 In-game messaging for PS3 spotted on official site



    For a brief moment this week, the PlayStation 3 site touted (via NeoGaf) the ability to "talk to others during gameplay." The ability to access the cross-media bar (XMB) and send messages in-game has been long at the top of our wish lists, especially given that Xbox Live users have long enjoyed that feature.

    However, despite our longing an in-game XMB update still isn't on our systems. The PS site has since been updated, removing the tantalizing phrase. It was promised at CES 2008 to come out this year. Was it a goof in wording or a hint at a spicy GDC announcement? We'll know next week.

    The same site had some information on Home which was also removed. Chances are, someone at Sony was a little "trigger happy" and released this information early. I suspect that this information will come at GDC (which was probably when the website was supposed to get this information)

    That feature is really needed if PS3 wants to compete with Xbox Live.
