Really pissed off about this
illkar a Namco rep on the prepare to die forums posted this
"Also, I've been saying this for a long time without much definitive evidence, but here goes... excuse the internet shouting. THERE WILL BE NO VOICE CHAT IN DARK SOULS. AT ALL. THIS INCLUDES CROSS-GAME CHAT, XBL PARTY CHAT, ETC. Confirmed for me today, again."
I was so excited for this game and with this news it brings that excitment level back to normal. I may wait until winter and have hands on time with BF3 and skyrim.
Hopefully the xbox community finds a way around this. perhaps being signed in with another gold account on another controller
