IncGamers' Andy Alderson discusses the Friends Only voice chat option on Xbox LIVE.
From the column:
"Hidden away in the depths of your Xbox LIVE profile preferences lies an option which might just change your experience of online gaming forever. Time for a little context: back in November 2008, Microsoft introduced the Party Chat feature as part of the New Xbox Experience dashboard update. Party Chat allows players to create a chat room in which they can speak privately to multiple friends while playing a game. Yes, I know it sounds simple, but Party Chat was pretty important when you consider what existed before it. Which, for me at least, was pain. Lots of pain."
