After several years of complaints, cross-game chat will finally make its debut on the PlayStation 4. The feature will allow you to communicate with your friends at any time, enabling you to chat about the weather even if you’re enjoying completely different games. This functionality, however, will expand to the PlayStation Vita, too.

Responding to fan queries on Twitter, likeable Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that the Party Chat feature will work across systems, meaning that you’ll be able to keep in touch with your buddies even if you’re playing on completely different consoles. The next generation is going to be glorious, isn’t it?
