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.

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 :D. 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 :D 

 

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

You'll be talking to yourself even if your squad has mics with how bad the comms are in BF3.

Not really all that strange. Just due to the PS3 having insufficient RAM for XGC which isn't really sony's fault as at launch 512MB was considered a good amount. however i agree they should have thought of XGC in development :)

No. No no no no no.

 

If we start doing things like that, like what has happened on PC, its like we are implicitly agreeing that developers dont really need to bother doing comms properly. Yes they do.

 

 

SOCOM 1,2,3,CA and confrontation had great comms, pretty much every other game on the Playstation 2 and 3 sucked in some way or other. How we are going backwards in a crucial component of online gaming is beyond me.
