my friend and i tried while playing each other online in NBA 2k7 last night. there didn't seem to be any option to do it. I had my PS eye on with the blue light on too.

thanks in advance.

i don't think i'm understnading correctly. so even in games like Socom or whatever, there is NO way to voicechat. wow! that's incredible....... it woudl be so much more fun to be able to play like tiger woods or something and talk while you're playing....what the heck why do they even sell the Socom bundled with the mic then???

You misunderstand them. I believe it's specifically NBA 2K7 that doesn't support voicechat (I'm not too certain since I don't own the game). A large majority of games do support voice chat within the game. I use my headset all the time whenever I jump on COD4, Resistance 2, LBP, and SF2 online.

And I hear people chatting all the time on Bond and NHL 09. Can you hear people better thru the headset when they are talking cuz when people talk and it comes thru my speakers it sounds all muffled and hard to understand.

To be honest, on online gaming when you want 2 talk to friends, your better off creatin a private match between u andur friends, because sometimes voice connections fail when everyone is tryin to talk, or ....... u may of accidently muted a player, when a match is over and the end screen comes up, pressing square cn mute player.

if you just wanna chat withyour friend and not play games there is a chat room in the friends section. seems kinda obvious but some people surprisingly dont know its there
