The connections between the two consoles continue to rise.
If it weren’t enough that cross-game voice chat would finally be arriving to Sony consoles via the PlayStation 4, it also seems that cross-platform party chat will be possible between the next generation console and the handheld PlayStation Vita.
President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios for SCE Shuhei Yoshida recently answered a fan’s question regarding the same on Twitter and confirmed that cross-platform party chat would indeed be possible between the systems.

Too bad PlayStation 3 was never added to the mix, right?
As of now, the reasons for owning a PlayStation Vita (and subsequently for Sony to release a bundle for the Vita and PS4) are just piling up. Along with cross-platform party chat, you can also turn on your PlayStation 4 console using the Vita as a remote and even transfer your PS4 games to the Vita to play on the go, via Remote Play through Gaikai. What else will we see, as the PlayStation 4 nears its November release date? Stay tuned.
