Xbox Live Chat Quality To Get Remastered This Fall

I thought I was the only one that couldn’t hear my fellow 360 gamers when chatting it up on Xbox LIVE. The Xbox LIVE chat sound quality is currently sounding like a cheap AT&T 1 bar call, but coming this fall along side the Kinect, is a much needed upgraded to Xbox LIVE’s audio infrastructure.

Eurogamer reports that Xbox Live Studios’ head honcho, Jerry Johnson said that this should make for a much more clean and clear chat when you play on Xbox LIVE.

“The codec we used when we first launched was a low bit rate codec and we stuck with that,” Johnson said at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival today, reports Eurogamer.

While broadband was required at service launch, it was a 64k connection and the chat service was tailored for that. Johnson notes that most won’t think of that low a connection speed as broadband these days.

“It’s time for us to move on. Especially if we want to think about broadening – a crackly headset on the top of your head – not what people think of when they talk about popular entertainment.”

A Beats By Dre sound quality is all we ask for. I’m audio head, so you bet this is one of my most anticipated gaming feature enhancements this year.
