Major Nelson:Today we want to share some details about the incredible voice chat improvements made to Xbox One and how these changes will enhance your communication with the Xbox One Chat Headset on the console.
This is pretty cool.
I agree Golding, the Skype feature for the One is going to be very cool, especially snapping a game to the side and having a party chat with friends. So.... Another "well said" for golding89 and yet he's still on two bubbles. Exactly how does this bubble system work again? It really is strange.
I always thought the bubble system needs to be more tied into the agree and disagree buttons. If it was I think more people would watch what the say.
Finally crystal clear codec. The new controller apparently also helps because of its better feedback to the console. Microsoft says Skype audio codec integration and "dedicated audio processing" will result in "crystal clear" quality on next-gen console. Great news can't wait.
At the very least , as seen with anything "disqu" based .. up and down vote on comments should disclose the name of the voters .
on a side not.. you need xbox live premium
Finch: That would be terrible idea. People should be able say what they think, not what majority want to hear.
that difference is pretty sweet.
Very good, excellent MS
wow that is an awesome improvement.
What about people in Jamaica who speak broken english and other places around the world? Will they have to learn a whole new language just to use this gimmick?
seeing that their not in the USA MS couldn't careless how it works for them or any other non American customer. They don't even really care about their American customers either but they're their biggest piece of the pie so they put on the facade that they do.
Yeah why read the actual news where you might learn something, when you can blindly troll and sound foolish?
What are you going on about? This article has to do with improved audio quality over the new headset... Correct me if I'm wrong, but you can speak any langue you want over the headset.. Did you even read the article? edit: I'm also directing this comment at you too, Roper316. You two are completely off-topic or you guys just didn't care to read the article or even look at the title of this submission...
where does it say you have to speak english? it's about high quality voice transmission... which it is especially compared to the 360.
Learning proper English is "a whole new language"? wow. I'm from the Caribbean, i live here, and the comment you made is the most ignorant thing I've heard in a while. That says allot coming from a gaming site full of fanboys and trolls.
...You just went full retard...never go full retard. Audio quality is improved regardless of what freaking language you speak...hell I could speak Latin and it would sound crystal clear...though you'd have to be a doctor or a priest to understand me.
WTF? They will have to learn english to use a microphone? Woah, I actually never spoke to my 360 mic in english. It works somehow! Agrees show how sad this site is. Fanboys just rage in to up anything negative towards XO and down anything positive.
im sure over time it will get better im jamaican & it understands me well enough on current kinect & my family in the Virgin Islands also use it & they dont hav 2 many problems either
That's nice, but ever since i got me a pair of surround sound headset with mic that controls the volume of the game and voice I hear everything perfectly : ). Nice feature just not a game changer. Good idea though for those who don't have one. Edit: Deadpoolio well thats just shitty thing to do though specially to your consumer. Want to use your nice headset? Here pay for this or buy a new one.
Yeah but you wont be using that headset on the One80 until they release that adapter they're working on. So they pretty screw anyone with an expensive headset unless they plan to purchase a second expensive One80 headset or wait for the adapter
Yeah I guess since PS2 controller didn't work on PS3 without an adapter (and even then iffy) Sony really screwed over people, and same with PS4/PS3 controllers. Oh well.
This is awesome and one of the reasons I choose xbox as my main console for gaming. Loving all the improvements across the board they have done with xbox-one and Kinect.
LOL Other than the TV through the One80 on the Tv and jumping around like an idiot the PS4 has all the same features as the One80....Skype is not exclusive either
No ps4 doesn't have all the same features. no skype no cloud computing(gaikai is only streaming) service no snap features No HDMI in no voice control no NUI no 3d face scanning no rumble triggers 3 operating systems... ps4 only has one. multiple account log- ins And there is more but you get the picture. xb1 klls ps4 in the features. LL sony can do is hope to copy all those.
@Belkin Skype: What do you use it for? I don't tend to call people or do face to face while i'm gaming maybe you do but I don't. Cloud: Gaikai is a cloud base company it specializes on Streaming, by no means does the company ONLY do that, they also do cloud computing which is what Azure does. Snap: how is this a game changer? The Ps4 interface and interaction looks pretty damn good no advantage for Xbone here either Voice Control: there is microphones on the camera which could allow it to, but honestly I won't use it, I hate talking to my console as its in my bedroom when my gf is sleeping im not going to be yelling at my tv. NUI: XMB 3D Face Scanning: PS Eye can capture on 3D, I also did this with my PS3 eyetoy which btw i put my face in Fifa, which I don't care to ever use again Rumble Triggers: Touchpad and Extra Button 3 Operating systems: lol, that one i just laughed because windows 8 is so good... Multiple Accounts log in: PS3 has that why can't the PS4 do the same?
@Transporter47 Of course everyone has opinions but some tend to speak for themselves, I hope, when they see features on other console they do no care about as in your post. What belkin describes is what separates the consoles. Why would one buy an Xboxone if it was exactly the same and offered the same features set. Of course features will not always be used by everyone.
Ps4 has this not that I'm trying to bring it up on a x1 article but just saying both console are close with a couple differences.
wow that's crisp... and that was using the pack in headset..
it sucks they are taking out the guide :/ now when you press the xbox button it brings you to the dash
Amazing audio with the new Xbox One now it has a higher bandwidth with the new WiFi direct, what else will they do with this feature...
I think they can do a lot honestly, I'm excited for it. I'm sure we'll see a ton of new accessories for it in the future.
All we need now is a nice new chat pad or interactive touchscreen... :))
I always found the chatpad's troublesome, ate up the battery life, and just felt funny on the 360 controller, I had trouble really gaming with it attached, if they do a re-design or make it lighter and less power consumption it would be nice. And smartglass should work well as a touch screen input for the X1.
That sound quality is massively improved. Cool.
Wow. That's truly amazing. it really, really is. And its only cost £40 per year to enjoy and hear such rich sound quality coming from foul mouthed little twerps. You guys should try the PS. no seriously, I'm not joking. We get the same sound quality and foul mouthed twerps as you guys and girls do...... just with out the cost. Amazing!! :D
Did you miss that in order to play online with PS4 you need PSN+?
Sounds great. Another plus for the Xbox One package. That $25 headset included with the system is made possible due to the hard work of everyone that were giving feedback to MS. They listen and I can't be happier.
I was just thinking with all the games using smart-glass it would be nice if their was a attachment with a small screen that could do these features. I'M sure they could add a few more batteries or rechargeable if it was power hungry..
