And then I realised that their voice chat functionality is fantastic. First you choose who you can communicate with. So you can have everyone muted by default without the ability for them to hear you. You can set it so you can only hear friends and they can only hear you. Then you got an option so you can hear everyone and they can all hear you. The second element is it works within proximity. So when you get roughly half a mile of someone. It satisfies everryone. Don't like voice chat? Set everyone muted by default. Wanna chat with only friends? Set it to friends only. Wanna make friends? Set it to public. I'll be getting the white ps4 and without voice chat I won't be able to meet and greet players, forming a raiding team. Shame.

I would go one step further and suggest two things: [b]1.[/b] Players can tell by looking at your name on the scoreboard and above your head whether or not you can hear them or if they are talking to you. [b]2.[/b] A count of how many players that otherwise could hear a player have that player specifically muted. It wouldn't count friend only mutes, but manual mutes that are still in effect.
