We all know the wonders cross game party chat did for the social space of Xbox Live however, have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to party chat across platforms.

The ability to cross platform chat with a mobile device such as the PS Vita offers great convenience as the mobile users will now have the option of engaging friends who are on their PS4 in full discussion from any suitable wi-fi hotspot. The implication here are certainly interesting. Could it then be possible for the PS4 and PS Vita to potentially connect via cross platform chat to other Sony devices such smartphones, tablets and laptop through maybe, a Playstation app?
What do you think? Should Sony go this route? Is this ultimately something Sony intends on offering or is this wishful thinking? Please let us know in the comment section below.
