PlayXpert Announces New Chat Gateway

PlayXpert has announced that they have developed a Chat Gateway which is integrated with SOE's Station Friends chat network, and allows players to chat across multiple games.

SANDPOINT, ID – FEBRUARY 14, 2008 -- 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.”

John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment, said, “Gamers today typically play several games and as a result maintain what are traditionally separate and distinct communities across those games. We feel strongly about empowering our players using our Station Friends chat network to remain connected to their other gaming communities and friends even when they are outside of those games. PlayXpert has shown its ability to integrate its chat gateway with the Station Friends chat network to enable text chat between SOE games and other games.”

Using PlayXpert, players will be able to add friends across numerous games or game worlds including EverQuest®, EverQuest® II, and PlanetSide®, and can auto-discover their game-specific friends list and have it appear in the PlayXpert Chat Messenger roster.
