    PS3 Chatting Empty PS3 Chatting

    Post by IV_Mark_VI Fri Sep 07, 2012 12:06 am

    Hey everyone,

    I was about to pick this up for the PS3 when... no chat function? Can't hang out with a friend and talk? What madness is this?!

    Is there a way to get around it on the PS3?

    Please help!

    You mean audio chat? there is no way while playing dark souls. You can do audio chat while no game is on in the background, and in select games that offer the option, its in the very last icon I believe its a headset over a keyboard.

    If you need to audio chat in dark souls I'd recommend a computer program like skype or something similar.

    I see some threads out there on using skype. But I've only ever used my ps3 to watch blurays so far. Any idea how this is done?

    I don't think you can run skype off your ps3, you'll have to have a laptop or smartphone I think. Just install it and friend the person you want to chat with, I am sure you could get invited to he forum chat there too if you asked around.

    Hmm... gotta be voice for me. Talk with friends/family whilst I play. And my headset totally covers my ears.

    I don't think PS3 has an option like the ''parties'' we have on XBL.

    That said I hate talking , or hearing others talk while Im gaming. I can't handle the distraction ''it really spoils my focus'' and it ruins the immersion.

    I think FROM intentionally left out voice chat because this is meant to be a lonely journey, even when you have summoned phantoms. I rather like not having voice chat, though I have to admit I have never played a game with voice chat before. Demon's Souls was the same way. I'm not sure the game would have the same ambiance if I had kids (that should not be playing the game in the first place) screaming in my ear after I have invaded and off'd their characters.
