Can you talk to people on-line like you can on Xbox Live?

i'm getting a ps3 tonight, so i asked my friend the same question. he said yes, but you have to buy the headset.

the ps3 will work with any bluetooth headset, not like xbox, where you're stuck with that crappy one they give you.

You can talk with people, but only with the individual game's own talk feature (for example, cod4) if it has one. For now, you can't use the console's chat feature or message any people in game because you don't have access to the XMB in game, the main OS of the ps3 (equivalent to the dashboard for the 360). This is supposed to change soon (Sony's favorite word.)

2.4 is supposed to come out sometime in July. Rumor has it that it will be sometime around E3.

Rumor also has HOME coming out almost on a bi-weekly basis. Until I see something about it on PS Blog its not even worth thinking about.
