I’m saddened at the lack of group voice chat.
MSN doesn’t have group voice chat – hopefully it will at some point.
Well MSN doesn’t really have to do with the lack of group voice chat. The 360’s have private chats for quite a while, but having group chats is something that the Private Chat feature majorly lacks. Even stranger still is that you can have up to 4 voice chats going, but only talking to one person at a time. It’s call waiting for a next gen console!
Not sure if you guys saw this or not, but they are also going to have a clip-on keyboard so that you can chat easily. Looks pretty awesome.
Sick! I still rather prefer a full-sized keyboard
