Sony has been trying their best to help sell its PlayStation Vita handheld gaming device, which just so happen to have received its first price cut just last week. We know both the PS Vita and PlayStation 4 were developed simultaneously and Sony has made it mandatory for developers to support remote play so PS4 games could be playable on the PS Vita. Sony is taking the cross-platform love one step further as we’re learning PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita owners will be able to voice chat with one another on their respective devices.
The news comes from none other than Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida as he responded to a Twitter user’s question if their friend can be invited into a party chat on the PlayStation 4. His response was simply “yes.” Yoshida-san’s short response further confirms how dedicated Sony is in offering a truly cross-platform experience between PS Vita and PlayStation 4 owners. Let’s just hope the previously rumored PS4 / PS Vita bundle will see the light of day soon after the PS4 is released as it’ll most likely be the only way PlayStation 4 owners will even consider the PS Vita since buying both gaming consoles separately would take a little more effort.
