Re: Noone has a mic?

I find most PS3 users don't have mics in the first place anyway. I can see why it wasn't bundled with the console, as its a terrible design for sitting on your ear, plus it doesn't even work in some games. No cross gaming chat also...Sony seen all of this coming I'm sure. Maybe they'll get it right next Gen.

 

But to answer your question. The voices break up too much in BF3, to the point that no one uses their mic. Still waiting on a fix.

Yeah I know people have them. But you just said at least 1 person has 1. If it was 360, you would most likely have both teams all using mics, or there all in party chat. I've always thought Sony should of bundled a mic into the PS3. 

 

Even I went & bought the mic for the PS3, but I hardly use it as in some games it doesn't work, or no one else even uses it. It's just a sad thing about the PS3, which is why for the next console, I really hope they nail the social aspect of the console. 

 

I don't want to see silly keyboards attached to controllers. It should be as easy as sending a voice recorded message.

I have a mic but I'm not using it to talk to weird people online, I only use it for co-op. Damn weird people.

Re: Noone has a mic?

BF3 on 360 also has the same comms problems using the games VIOP. But they have the cross chat as a handy work around. It will get fixed (eventually) Though it does work fine between 2 people, sometimes 3

 

I've used the Sony head set for over 2 years and its not uncomfortable for me Cringles. At first I didn't like on my right ear but I swapped it round so its on my left ear and its far more comfortable. Sort of forget its there :smileyvery-happy:. Only had problems with comms using it in BF3 but in all other games its crystal clear. Goner be making an investment in the Sony 7.1 headset :smileyvery-happy: 

 

Had some minor issues on BFBC2 would go "gurgly" though not often unlike some I could name :smileysad:
