What is Microsoft doing?
I’ll tell you what, it seems that they are giving developers the ability to forcefully deny gamers the use of party and private chat during Xbox Live multiplayer gaming sessions. That is, of course, unless this image was fabricated, although it looks like this is pretty legit.
This move has obviously been made to combat teams of players who use the chat systems to call out enemies locations and so on but I can’t say that I agree with it at all. There have been many times that just myself and a friend have jumped into international ranked games in the previous Call of Duty games and just sat chatting about whatever while we ran around and shot at whatever moved.
All that is about to change it seems.
Not only that but now if you are playing in the game by yourself online, you won’t even be able to chat to your buddy who’s rocking it out in Viva Pinata. Why not make it optional for different playlists?
I am very interesting to see what our hardcore COD/MW readers have to say about this. Is this a good move or do you think that it’s a little bit on the bonehead side? Hit us with comments and let us know what you think.
