This is the news that Microsoft have plans to improve the quality of voice comms over Xbox Live. The changes are scheduled to be integrated in the next Xbox Live update, around the time of the Kinnect launch. The improvements should be a real step up from the current sound quality, and are made possible by development in Broadband connections over the years. When the service was lauched, it was said broadband was required and it had to be a minimum 64k connection, a speed now barely even considered broadband. Broadband speeds nowadays are capable of much more, which makes these changes positive move. Crackly voice chats will be a thing of the past, hopefully replaced by sleek, sound quality. However, it still remains to be seen whether the purchase of a new headet will be necessary or not. As I’m sure you’ll all agree, here’s hoping for the latter.
