I'd definitely like to see more people with mics playing Section 8. It would really help with the coordination of the squads around the map in each match. Send me a friend request if you want to play some Section 8 sometime. The same goes for Split/Second, every time I find someone else who has a mic they turn out to be French.
...... Does anyone kno if its true or ot that people are nicer on playstation then x-box?
from what I've notices (not owning a 360, just playing Halo at my friend's house) that there are a lot more "adults" on PSN. Seems to me, that there are lot more kids on Live. But as for nicer people? i'm not sure, there are alot of douche bags in both age groups
I have a mic for my ps3 and use it on occasion. My problem is two things.. 1. guys who realize that I am an actual girl not just have a girls name and play a girl as my character and then proceed to bad mouth me. 2. immature assholes who think just cause I'm better at the game they have to try and sabotage me so I fail and they feel better about themselves. Most people I have nothing to say to so I have my mic on but I will have it muted.
I'd love to talk more online, but like everyone said already, you get the 13 year-old boys and, in my case, I get the stupid questions about if I'm really a girl, and so forth. I got a mic that works okay, its a usb connecting one, but it picks up everything and it says I talk when I'm not (I'm not a heavy breather either). Lately I've been on the LBP craze, and no one has a mic on there.
I feel your pain with the questions. My mic pics up just about everything. And is also the headset to my cell phone.
It does seem to be like there is a lack of mica which I hate when play games where strategy is needed. I also have noticed the PSN has more mature people than live, reason I believe that is because I think there is a younger audience on live. On the other hand I think that's because there is more mica on live, and once in a while you'll find a good group of people to play with which is nice and fun.
I dont like talking to people anyway unless they are in my party or somthing cause if not they tend to be aholes that i mute anyway. And you can use blutooth for ps3 or go to best buy and buy a damn 20$ wired mic stop complaining.
Mics are aplenty on the xbox. Most kids with mics(emphasis on kids) are stubborn assholes who think it's cool to swear. "fuck you like I fucked your mom!" Seriously? It's that intense to sit in a room with a controller and play a video game?
From my experience yesterday, that is so true with MW2. It was very quiet and veryyy serious. A lot of the immature people are on Black Ops right now (one of the reasons I don't put on my mic for that game because there tends to be a comment towards me sucking somebodies parts and more graphic details.)
Both of the official headsets for the ps3 have superb voice quality and functionality, now as far as the online community is concerned it depends on what game your playing and what time your playing for instance from like 1700-2100 on whatever the newest COD is you always seem to find the most kids and d-bags who talk shit or act annoying
So far the best community I found on PSN has been Singstar and thats because it really isnt multiplayer its just posting videos and comments haha Ive met a lot of cool people because they have seen my dumb videos
