Meanwhile Sony has taken off the site again.

So ingame XMB is coming soon.

Interesting, I wonder if that was supposed to be put up during GDC or something. Wouldn't surprise me, since that stuff is important for Devs to know.

Pointed it out in the home thread..For reference, the current "Friends & Messaging" section does not talk about chatting with friends during gameplay. I know some games do support voice chat, but...putting that in the friends & messaging section makes it sound like it isn't a game specific, nor a online specific, thing.

It's not fake, that page was indeed there but a few hours ago.

Check the home thread here, from post 1222 onward:

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthre...234552&page=25

Clinton514 reported it, but it went fairly unnoticed because it was during GAF's "dead time".

All I can comment on is that there appears to be "things" "happening."

Most likely it's all going to be related to GDC.

That wording is pretty.....I dunno.

"talk to friends during gameplay..." It seems very, shifty. I can talk to friends during gameplay, provided they're in the same game. However, it is interesting they took it down. We all know it's coming, it will just be nice to know when.

Yeah, but it's under 'friends & messaging'. The current friends & messaging blurb says nothing about communicating in gameplay. And they don't qualify it as "online game play", which might lead one to think they could just be talking about the current setup, with voice chat in some online games, as provided by the games.

If this is functionality to be provided by "friends and messaging", it more suggests xmb messaging to me..but we'll see.

For comparison. The current blurb is this:

* Friends list
* Text messages
* Audio and video chat**

That page had it as:

Talk to others during game play, say hello anytime you're online, or have a vdieo chat with an Eye camera, USB camera or headset.

There is a change there, and in both cases it seems to be referring to xmb functionality.

I also can't see what else that was potentially "sensitive" that would warrant taking down the page..the only other thing that quite of stuck out to me was mention of exchanging "user created content" in your apartment in Home, on the linked to home page. Then again, I guess that 'just' means photos/music/video as already announced.

but it also took Microsoft long time to get there hardware to stop breaking, but maybe they still haven't got that done

If only it took the same time for Microsoft to give us a reliable system. Still waiting.

The train of thought is this. The current "Friends & Messaging" description is this:

[IMG]http://i32.************/mjs683.jpg[/IMG]

The one on this new page was:

[IMG]http://i32.************/e5l1k7.jpg[/IMG]

The addition of "Talk to others during game play" seems deliberate..? Maybe suggests in-game 'friends & messaging'?

Yes, it could mean the application-specific voice chat you have in some online games now, but that's not 'friends & messaging' functionality. It could also mean the xmb friendslist some games implement. But if it were just that, why not list this as a feature before? We'll see, I guess, one can but hope :p I mean, we know it's coming, the significance of this might be that it could be coming sooner rather than later.

You see, time goes by a lot quicker for PS3 owners. Their systems actually work for the duration.

There'll be feature parity when Microsoft starts letting me download demos again.
