XBL Headset: My Hate / Hate Relationship

Kotaku writes:

I never use my headset on XBL. Frankly, I have enough on my mind just trying to get my meaty hands to manipulate the controls properly let alone attempting to carry on any semblance of a conversation. And then the handful of times that I did use it I plain hated the experience. At best I had to listen to kids while they were talking smack [alert: 9 minutes of profanity-laced posturing] or just humming to themselves.

Maybe you should go play the ps3 online. Cause most kid's don't have a clue you can use a bluetooth headset for talking.

'I have enough on my mind just trying to get my meaty hands to manipulate the controls properly..'

Someone should tell him about the mute option, also having a headset, means that you HAVE THE CHOICE.

that's Xbox live for you.

It's a common misconception that Xbox live have voice comminication.
It does have user-generated noise transmission.

I wish they would realise that some of us do have something else then a 56K modem. Use a better codec!

That way atleast I could hear the "fuc*** ni****" remarks more clearly.

And people please use the reputation option to avoid and help out the community with the idiots.

"And people please use the reputation option to avoid and help out the community with the idiots" You do realize you are one of those idiots. Your dumb comments proves you lead the pack of idiots. Go learn basic grammar. You did not make a single complete sentence.

He might as well just say headsets in general. He didn't have to single out the XBL headset as if it has some sort of annoyance unique to it.

myabsolution3491d ago

maybe he could use the mute feature which rules.

I don't know what all this 'kak' is about above.. The mute works great and in games like COD4, it's very easy to mute people, and I've only so far had to mute one guy this year..

Kleptic3491d ago

maybe on XBL...but the PS3 version still doesn't have a mute option...and pretty much ever since the retards got the game for Christmas, its been annoying...

muting is coming with that next update I guess...which will be great...the forum posting from IW said they were working on the ability to mute others, and you can specify yourself who can hear you...so you can direct your voice chat to only people in your party...then you can say whatever you want and not offend anyone...will be great if all that makes it soon...

Thais guy dos not play games or never did and has no clue what so ever what online play is and should not be given permission so right any thing that will influence people in their free choice

There are ways to avoid what "you" don't want"; no one is obligated to use the headset; and like in real life if you don't like your friends or the people you hang out with change them.
