    If you bought 5th aniversary of oblivion you got a voucher for $10 off the purchase of guide and game. So it was a whopping $5 or something.

    Stupid question but have to ask

    why would a headset mic be any different? but to be honest.... the sound is directional towards the controller... it should partially block out the surrounding noise and focus on you alone...yeah.. things will get heard,,,, but not as much as you would
    think (this all being that your Kinect is properly calibrated)

  6. Yes I have heard the a lot of voices/noises in the backround while playing against people who have their kinect turned on as a mic. It can be switched off as a setting which allows the kinect to work but not be used as a mic for in game chat.

  11. Yes I have been paranoid about people hearing my conversations and my dog barking while having my kinect on so now I just have it switched off chat when I am not in a party. Sometimes I like using it as a mic though.

    The Kinect does filter out some background noise, like the game your playing, but some other noise do get through. It seams about the same as a head mic.

  13. Stupid question but have to ask

    Messiah....on the sound callibration,,, wack ya volumn up as much as poss.....when it asks without distortion of the sound....this then separates tv volimn and sets the filtering of external noise,from your voice while holding the controller while playing,.which
    will minimize the amount of family noise when ya playing. Stupid question but have to ask :)
