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?

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

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.

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!

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

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
