Recommendations? I have the Jabra that came with Warhawk and it sucks unless you want to hear yourself talk. That has me soured on bluetooth right now so I am looking at wireds.

If you go to Walmart they have the Socom 2 ones for $30 I believe. They are pretty good. Just don't throw them and they won't break.

If you are willing to spend $100+ you can get some pretty good ones, but I don't know exactly where to find them.

I just use my Motorola one that I use for my cel phone and it works great. You have to go into two "accessories settings" menus to get it talking, but after that it works great.

I've also used the PSeye. Flawless, but it does give some "echo talkback" into the game is you have your TV volume up

Socom 3 one is...The one I'm talking about is from the PS2.

It works via USB.

THe best use is video chat. Games it supports are LittleBigPlanet (take pics and add them to your levels, make stickers)

And SingStar (reord your own 30-sec video and post online like YouTube.

There's also "Eye of Judgement" but I reserve comment. STFU

It's pretty much bullshit that when you spend $400 on a console they can't throw in some vanilla, cheapy mic with your kit.

I'm calling shenanigans PS3. Headsets are essential to online MP gaming. I guess they aren't all that important for viewing movies, so who cares right?

I've found that the majority PS3 users don't use a micI dunno about that. I've been playing WAW for the last few hours and there were quite a few people with mics. And a bunch of those mics had terrible feedback. It was really f*cking annoying. I started off each game by going to the score menu and muting every person in the room.

It made for a more enjoyable experience. I wouldn't say as many people use their mics as on the 360, but that's probably because the 360 packages a mic with their consoles, so nobody has to go out and spend a ridiculous amount of money on a good mic that doesn't have shitty feedback.

Some mics are like $50, that's a whole year of XBox Live right there.

I don't use a mic on COD anyhow. It's not nearly as team based for deathmatch and HQ as GOW is. I usually leave my mic unplugged when I play it, and I wish a whole lot of people I played with tonite would have done the same and saved my ears the pain.

don't you love the ones that play with a baby crying in the room.That doesn't bother me nearly as much as dumbass 10 year olds talking jargon and making stupid f*cking noises to intentionally annoy everyone in the room.

But yeah, the crying baby is always fun as well. I have a 9 month old son, so I suppose I'm a bit more sympathetic to those kinds of noises at the moment, but sometimes you wanna just be like "Dude, if I was at your house, I'd give your kid a bottle or hold it or whatever, but since I'm not, and you're choosing to play online right now, you should probably get offline and pay attention to your kid."

My personal favorite is the gamer that always has to let you know how high they are, or how they have to "put this blunt out before this shit starts" or "hold up, I gotta hit this bong real quick".

His name is usually SmokyHazeBudz420 or something like that.

I could care less what people do in their own homes. If people wanna drink, smoke, f*ck, freebase, bang heroin...whatever, that's not my business. It's just particularly annoying when some gamers go out of their way to let you know how f*cked up they are.

Sometimes I get online after I've had a few drinks, but I don't make comments like "Holy shit, I just spilled my Crown and Coke, hold up."

Or, "I woulda had that headshot if I wasn't so blitzed right now!"

Seriously, I've heard the crying baby, and even the "complaining girlfriend" playahs.

But I've never had anyone be all up in the mic about how they are jacked or need to take a hit. I've heard the coughing MANY TIMES but not guys going out of their way to say what they are doing.

I don't know if since it's a slower paced shooter it attracts stoners moreso than other games, but I've heard those lines I've posted almost verbatim probably a couple dozen times.

I've run into more stoners on Beautiful Katamari and Dead or Alive than I have on the more popular titles (minus COD4)

I always think its funny when you randomly hear a bong bubbling through your headset.

I normally dont talk shit, or talk about being high, but one time I was at my buddies house and he put in COD4 and was playing the single player one (free for all i think).

I told my friend I sucked at that mode and I would get killed but he let me play anyways.

I went in the room and proceeded to let everyone know how high I was. They all told me they were gonna kick my ass.

I played 3 matches with those folks and was talking shit the whole time. I won 25-15 or better every time.

That was the funnest time I've ever had on COD4.
