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 used chat in destiny, was in a fire team and we both could hear each other but the audio sounded like when your ghost talks like he was talking from inside the helmet, had to change to party chat because I could barely hear him over the weird distortion in the audio. I guess I'm the only one who experienced that
