"She sells sea shells by the sea shore."

Unlike Xbox 360, Xbox One uses Skype’s audio codec, which provides dedicated audio processing to offer Xbox One users a higher quality of voice chat. Major Nelson posted a snippet of audio on his blog comparing Xbox One’s audio chat quality to that of Xbox 360. It’s quite the improvement. Have a listen below.

    Yeah only the 360 version is popping up here. Had a listen on his blog though, it’s quite an improvement.

    im sorry but are you really that desperate microsoft/major nelson? ..i mean, when you said that xbone controller have 40 innovation eventho i only see 3 or 4 improvement , i.e rumble trigger, dpad .it still acceptable .. but this is beyond hilarious ..

    • McPoo

      What’s wrong with this? Voice communication is quite important so any improvements are welcome :)

    • BizarreJelly

      I don’t see what’s desperate about improving your product.

        its become laughable becoz in late june microsoft try to
        downplay PS4’s Spec Advantage by saying “spec just a bunch of numbers, which are in some ways meaningless” and yet MS publish xbox one have 5 billion transistors and their controller have 40 innovations ..

        oh and please go to ‘ ‘. they did it again .

        “The most awarded exclusives: 100 awards for exclusive games at E3 vs. 42 for PS4” .. now they even mention ps4 on their own official xboxone webpage lol , still not desperate ?

        IIRC,sony never mention microsoft as’microsoft’ they just say as ‘competitor’ or ‘other’ . ..

      Well MS knows they ate not on top this coming gen, so they are focusing on their strong points. I can’t deny that MS has a had a greater chat, but until I see ps4 it’s hard to compare Xbox one vs ps4s chat ATM.

      Again tho I see no problem with them showing off what they r strong at, but they know they are in a negative light right now hence the 180 and meaningless Xbox one specs posts.

    Oh wow I was skeptical before I actually listened. Great improvement.

  • DesmaX

    Wow, the Xbox One one is way better

  • Willgaea

    Sounds like skype now.

    I can get both of those qualities through the same system using a good and a bad headset. So this isn’t saying much.
