Sold my xbox 360 for a PS3, I love PSN, but there's ONE thing I miss from xbl...

I miss the community. People actually have headsets. And talk.

I support gaming online for free and that's why I prefer PSN over XBL. Since I don't use Netflix, ESPN, youtube, or whatever people say to justify XBL over PSN, I just play games online. That's it. And no, I never experienced a PSN shutdown or lag fests. But what I do experience is a lack of the social interaction that I've come to be accustomed to since being a XBL subscriber from 2006-2013 (And whenever the OG xbox came out, I don't remember)

Noone has a mic on PSN. and if they do, they don't talk. It's a miracle when you do run into someone you acknowledge you. That is a shock to me since on xbl, it was weird when you didn't have a mic. Now, it's commonplace. (-___- )

I think it depends on the game, when I played Halo, everyone talked (and chirped). But on Gears, maybe half the people (or less) talked...

TC you sound like a casual and a bit of a noob.

The Xbox One board should be renamed to the Official "Troll Here" board.

That may have been true back in like 2008, but hardly anyone talks anymore. It's only gotten worse as the Party Chat feature has gotten better.

It seems like people just in general don't talk online anymore...back in 2007 EVERYONE had a mic and would talk...made for some fun matches when you found people who were actually cool and could have a conversation during the game...but by, say, 2010...nobody really uses mics anymore except for the occasional person (some games still have plenty of people with mics...like the Modern Warfare games...but for the most part talking online (at least, outside of party chat) is dead)

Those years are just general timeframes, but that's what it's like anymore...I do miss the early Halo 3 days where you'd find people you actually wanted to party up with instead of just jumping from game to game, but I can't say I hate party chat
