    Thanks Evo.

    Nothing really that interesting for me here. I wasn't looking for much.

    I was a little excited when they mentioned the sorting of the friends list... which didn't look impressive to me one bit.

    Oh well... better luck next time then.

    Wow, epic suck. How much longer is Sony going to beat around the bush on in-game Voice Chat and Voice Messaging?

    I'm sorry, but usually when I'm playing an online game where PAUSING WON'T STOP YOU FROM GETTING FRAGGED, I usually like to be left the f*ck alone from XMB Messages while playing... I don't want to stop game, whip out the keyboard, and respond to every single impatient "ARE YOU THERE?!" message that comes my way (and yes, I mistakenly bought one of those crappy keypad attachments, and it's even worse than my Logitech BT keyboard since according to Sony I must have a condition commonly known as "Hot Dog Fingers", but to be fair I've had the same problem with BlackBerries before).

    Voice messaging would be a lot quicker, or even better is what the 360 has had for a while where I can just open a private voice chat channel with a friend or group of friends.

    I know... preaching to the choir, everyone knows this, but like I've argued before Sony has really good games (despite the lack of good JRPGs yet), but is really lacking in the Firmware/OS area, and we're in 2009 now. I'm hoping the next go round we'll get some real improvement.

    Yeah, I got it a while ago, and the text chat is just as annoying as I thought it might be. Constant text msgs going on the notification bar while you're playing your game.

    That's not the main problem I see (but a huge annoyance came in when I was in a text chat w/ 16 people last night and text messages were going across every .5 seconds). The main problem I see is how people will use it (because the internet has bred a culture of extremely impatient people). It won't be long before I have to start pissing off people left and right because they'll want me to join a chat RIGHT NOW and want me to respond to every single message as soon as they come across... which I'm not going to do when I'm playing a game online or if I'm in an incredibly difficult situation (as I was last night on the last Soviet mission on C&C RA3).

    wOOt! Another thing to distract me from the tracer rounds pinging all around my head...

    I agree with you Bitrunner, that in game VOICE MESSAGING would be the step that Sony needs to take. I just hope this in game chat is a case of Sony learning to crawl before they walk and then run.

    I see a future of a in game VIDEO MESSAGING with a little pop-up in the corner for all those people with the PS3 EYE recording a 5-10 second video message...wouldn't that be the cat's ass!!!

    i actually like this update, it makes it alot easier when talkin to my mate rather then all the reading through the messages n then exiing then returning to the game i can check n reply withone press o a button (ps).... makes it easier for my anyway, if it distracts some people you can just choose not to join the text chat
