It looks like SCEE over in Portugal are still promoting Cross Game Chat as a feature of PlayStation Plus, something the whole of Sony did originally when the service was first announced, but later retracted and quietly removed from the feature list.
The ability to chat online with other PS3 users regardless of the game you were playing was – apparently – intended to be a feature of PlayStation Plus (you can see that here) but it was later stated that technically it’s simply not possible.
That makes it reasonably safe to assume that the the words “Cross-game Voice Chat: invite your friends to chat online no matter what game you’re all playing and even if they aren’t members of PlayStation Plus” on the PSN Store for Portugese Plus subscriptions is likely just an error.
Still, it’s nice to be reminded that somewhere somebody’s still thinking of it.
