First off, for the most part I like the console a lot. However, with lack of cross-platform party chat it begins to make me regret springing into the new console so early. Now I understand that the new one uses a different codec and all but isn't this suppose to be the console of the future? Maybe making a new app specifically for joining/hosting Xbox 360 party types? At least then I could communicate with the majority of my friends who are unlucky enough to not be able to upgrade quite yet. Again I'm not at all sure if this is at all possible but it would definitely be a step in the right direction.
