Just about a year ago i got a 360 and as a self admitted Sony Fanboy i was impressed by XBL. Most importantly when playing single player games i was still chatting with friends. As I got more games for the 360 the less i played the PS3 to the point that I would now prefer 360 games over the PS3, which is something that i thought i would never say. Multiplayer games on the PS3 usually has only a handful of people with mics, and with single player games it has become totally boring to play no matter how good the game is. And no i cannot stand doing text chat on the PS3. I just played through Red Dead Redemption and half way through the game i found myself turning on my xbox and leaving the controller on just so I can join a party chat as I played on the PS3. My latest game GT5, which i was excited to finally play just seems downright boring as I play alone. As much as I prefer GT5 over Forza I find myself playing Forza more just to be in XBL party chat. Its like playing basketbally by yourself , ya you can shoot hoops all you want but its always more fun when playing with friends. As sad as this sounds this rant/question was brought on as I moved my PS3 into my bedroom and disconnected it from my home theater as its only purpose in my house is that my gf will use it to stream Netflix. Maybe I will use it for a weekend when I will play Uncharted 3, but after that its future will see no use. I just dont understand its been this long since the ps3 released and still no party/cross game chat, all we have is the lame ass text chats. I would gladly pay for PSN if all they added was party chat.
