Was just wondering which PSN games allow you to kick players (e.g. if they dont have a mic). I know this is not the most popular of post topics, but just wondering?

M.A.G is terrible for it sometimes, my Fiancee TOONANGEL goes nut's when people try to kick her, just because she has more points than them most of the time, or she is not in there clan, as for kicking people just because they dont have a Mic, well thats just SAD.

Not sad at all...
What I do find particularly sad is how online gaming on xbox/playstation has changed over the year. When I first started playing Rainbow 6 - Black Arrow nearly 10 years ago, I used to get kicked all the time at the start because I didnt have a mic... so I then went out and got one and guess what... the gameplay was massively enhanced.
Being able to communicate with your fellow players is what makes online gaming... otherwise you might as well be playing against bots. Xbox live is now a graveyard because everyone is on party chat and psn seems to be similar cos not many people seem to have/use mics...
I appreciate that without a mic you dont need to put up with screaming people being annoying, but that is what mic/kick functions used to be used for.
Last night I played BF3 on psn for 4 hours and found... not a single player with a mic. The perfect tactical online shooter becomes a random melee of activity because no one can discuss what objectives to focus on.
And I am sure some of you are thinking why dont you play with your friends... well in all honesty none of my mates are really into online gaming... most of them are hardcore Jocks and think it is a step too far into geekdom... (something which I disagree with since I think it far enhances gameplay - if implemented correctly).
... if wanting a return to the good old days (and they were good) is sad, then I accept I am sad.
Rant over ;-)

Being able to talk to randoms all over the world is NOT what makes online gaming at all.
If you want to play at Gaming Police, then set up private matches. If you've got no friends that play online... tough.

In my experience mic's are mainly used to berate other players in the lobby , childish i know but heh kids today and all that!!!
Is it mainly Battlefield you play??
If you play cod i'd suggest zombies , or even infected on mw3 , this has turned out to be a bit of a gem everyone talking and generally having a good laugh , generally playing the mode in the spirit intended also.
If you can't stomach cod perhaps try and join the opc Battlefield clan , pretty sure they'd have one and most people would be clued up and mic'd up also.

Thank for the advice... had a look at zombies on youtube - looks awesome so took your advice and ordered a copy of cod mw3.
Also, sorry about my first post in this trail. Just re-reading it and realise i came across as a bit of a mini-hitler... which really isnt the case... honest ;-)
