Xbox 360 Question
 
picked up one through work today, it's the kinect. can i use the kinect bar as a mic or do I need to purchase one? thanks for any advice/input.

Yessir, it comes equipped with a microphone.

AKHMERICA 12-13-2012 07:19 PM

Well it can recognize voice commands but I don't think it can function as a mic when you're playing online or something

So I can talk/hear friends while I am in game, such as Call of Duty, correct?

Occassionally Tajikey will come along with something positive to add to a thread that I am a part of.

Yes, but quality when you talk to it is terrible.

SportCardBuffet 12-13-2012 08:39 PM

Yes you can use it as a mic but your better of with a headset. Whoever your talking to will get a lot of feedback from whatever noises are being made.

This.
I actually hate it when people use their kinnects as a headset. All you hear is a lot of gun shots and the person has to yell to hear them. You can pick up really cheap priced turtle beaches now a days for like $30

rip+flip 12-14-2012 12:39 PM

you can use it as a mic but ask any call of duty player that plays a lot and they will tell you how annoying it is to hear someone talk through a kinect mic. the sound quality just isn't good and it picks up all other noises in your house.

Clarka3 12-14-2012 12:44 PM

yup. Freddy (ibleedbattlered) lost a piece to his mic and uses the kinect at times. I hate talking to him because I get my echo out of his TV.


There Freddy, I said it! ;)

kinect bar can be used as a mic, gets super annoying for other players cuz it sounds like youre talking through a shoe box

Don't use it for chat unless you want everyone to mute you.

Andy what's your gamer tag?

AKHMERICA 12-14-2012 02:39 PM

So are these the people who use Kinect mics the ones you just hear static the entire time?

Sounds like their talking under water the whole time

That's cool. I will mainly be on Black Ops 2 with my Mw3 clan.

Braveskid1025 12-14-2012 03:41 PM

Yeah just look on ebay, there is a set of 2 headsets that are just cheap turtle beach knockoffs for like 7$ that get the job done. Had one set break still have the other for like 3 years now

PDawson21 12-14-2012 03:42 PM

after you get beat in Madden.
