did they purposely block kinect mic on titanfall to get people to buy headsets?

seems strange that every other online enabled game i own allows you to use the kinect as a mic but titanfall doesn't....

Im so glad its blocked. No more listening to peoples tv, kids or moms yelling in my freakin ear.
I also think the x1 headset is so much better than the 360. Feels great.

They disabled it because the Kinect voice chat is on by default, and most people dont know that. This results in a lot of personal conversations or yelling being heard by everyone you play against without your knowledge.

There is a headset included in the box. Its comfort level is subjective, but to propose that Kinect chat being blocked is a ploy to get people to buy headsets, while ignoring the included headset just because it doesnt fit your comfort level is absurd.

I've not seen one person wear the packaged headset(the only person i know IRL who has one would probably break the damn thing if he put it on)

Hold the presses cause the one friend you have doesn't wear it no one does. I wore it until I bought my xo sevens.

Plus why would Respawn care they get no profit from them and I don think MS gets money or not much from third party headset sales.

Stop with the evil corporation BS

It drove me crazy playing p v z. I would have to go into party chat, so I wouldn't have to listen to that crap.
