seriously its so hard to find people that talk while playing in games. i remember years ago everyone use to talk and you could meet friends to play with ect. whats going on now? how do you find people that communicate?
"Everyone" is in Party Chat. It can be difficult but if you truly want to meet new Friends, when your Friends are in a Party be nice with everyone in that Party (new people you don't have on a Friends List).
I am almost never in party chat. I will glady talk while playing online games as long as someone else is too. I too miss the days before party chat because most of my friends on xbox came from just random games.
My two cents: people just got tired of hearing the kids yelling and swearing in matches. Personally, I like only hearing my friends talk when I play.
My other two cents: I have a hard time finding headsets that work all the time. I can't even remember how many headsets have broken on me. Sometimes it is just easier to not bother with trying to find a working headset before playing.
