One of the most requested features not currently on the PS3 looks set to come to the console.
According to video games blog VG247.com, a firmware update is due by the end of October and this will bring cross-game chat among other things. This looks set to be included in Firmware update 3.10.
The blog said this feature missed the previous update due to the need to update the previous PS3 before the new PS3 Slim came out.
The blog is well-respected so the chance of this happening looks very good. Of course Sony is keeping schtum about everything.
