Next week we are posing a hypothetical question to the listeners: What third party studio would you like to work on a PS3 exclusive and what kind of game would it be?

Send in your thoughts to crossgamechat@playstationlifestyle.net or PSLifeStyle via Twitter. You can also watch a live recording of the podcast on weekends by visiting the forums, here.
