Sony Liverpool has recently put up a temporary post for a Compatibility Tester, which seems to confirm that new firmware features are in development across all platforms. The purpose of the job is:
"To check the compatibility of titles on all PS formats with firmware updates and machine revisions currently under development."
The post also involves testing new firmware features and prototype hardware. The fact that the job is a temporary booking suggests that new features will be coming to the firmware soon, and therefore the team needed another team member for the temporary rush.
With the PlayStation Vita reportedly having cross-game voice chat, is there a chance that we could see a similar feature on PlayStation 3 soon?
