More communication = win for you.

In a press release today, SOE announced a new partnership in which the PlayXpert software will be integrated into the SOE system and allow users to talk to each other across the channels.

PlayXpert, the provider of next-generation in-game community management tools, announced today it has developed a unique Chat Gateway integrated with Sony Online Entertainment's (SOE) Station Friends chat network that allows any PlayXpert user to text-chat with the native chat systems on SOE's PC games. Using this gateway, PlayXpert users can connect with friends just like they can when they're playing the game using their characters' Friends lists. This innovation allows users who play non-SOE games to stay connected with their friends playing SOE games and vice versa.

"Today's announcement is another example of our pursuit to enable gamers to remain connected and stay in game," said Charles Manning, CEO of PlayXpert. "Just like our chat support for Google Talk, Yahoo Instant Messenger, and Xfire, our support for Station Friends allows PlayXpert users to stay connected to their friends no matter what game they play."
