Just when you thought the horse was dead...

I bought a 1-year PlayStation Plus card at the discounted price today. When I went to activate it, I saw this:

Conversação de Voz entre Jogos: convida os teus amigos para conversas online, independentemente do jogo que estiverem a jogar e mesmo que não sejam membros do PlayStation®Plus.

Translated:

Cross-game Voice Chat: invite your friends to chat online no matter what game you're all playing and even if they aren't members of PlayStation®Plus.

I know of the removed website entry in 2010. Well, it's 2012 now and the feature is still not there. This definitely counts as false advertising, so what gives, Sony?

Not enough RAM for cross-game chat.

Your 1-year PS+ card came in a blu-ray case? Nice.

Anyway, I bet they plan on implementing this feature some day... but this is kind of ridiculous

I know they said that.

Obviously this is an oversight. But it's still false advertising.

Every PSN card in Europe comes in Blu-ray cases, which is actually very nice.

It's an oversight by SCEE, who cares. We know it's not coming. Isn't it high time we just got over it?

Spanish users should collectively ask for a refund due to false advertising.

Late content and bad translations are the norm on the Portuguese store. This doesn't surprise me.

No way for chat to mean text chat?

Not excusing, just another way to read it?

No, because it specifically says VOICE chat

I just got another year and did not saw that, well spotted OP.

TTP: Booooo this man!

We should call them and ask a Tutorial how to do this since this was the reason I bought the PS Plus.

Postmature. For whatever reason, this feature was actually mentioned on a couple of regional sites as PS+ was announced at E3.

Oh SCEE! I wonder if european Sony admins even have a PS3 because the number of mistakes is huge.
Seems SCEE employs supermarket cashiers and unqualified personal as Store managers this gen.

What if you could cross voice chat with Vita players as well?

So you just went ahead and posted the PS4-announcement?
I guess that means it's less than a year + whatever bonus months you got, a bit more unaccurate than 66 days.. :P
I had hoped Sony would be able to atleast match the big WiiU-fanfare show - with a stream you could discover on Gametrailers - but a thread about cross-game chat on Neogaf ain't to bad either. :-/ Gotta save those marketing dollars.

Looks like it was text for Vita, maybe, and got put in the wrong box or something at PSN headquarters.

Oops.

maybe with the Vita PS+ coming they have added it in there? The Vita does it no problem.

You don't even need Plus for cross-game chat on Vita, it would make no sense to have it in a PlayStation Plus description if that was the case.
