215w ago - Today Gowans007 on NeoGAF has reported that Microsoft is now giving XBox 360 Devs the ability to stop guide party chat from within online games.
Currently, players have the option of forming a private chat with players, but that will soon change.
To quote: "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will force players to decide whether or not they'll play the game and join the game chat, or choose to stay in a private chat and not play in the multiplayer game.
With titles like Gears of War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: World at War, and many other online based multiplayer titles, the private chat feature became a way of telling other players of enemy locations after being killed."

its the same old story : anytime you think they're (big companies) giving you something, they're usually taking some thing from you ( backwards compatibility, OtherOS) whens the last time you think Xbox made a update for original titles, they phased out the xbox 1 quickly.
as for the chat feature, this is you next opponent..
This is most likely the cause why they are doing this is because of abuse on these private chat on games, now if they would let yourself block any people you didn't want in your circle of friends then this would be great, but in some ways this is good and in other ways it is not good.
But you know how it goes in the world today, anything that was good gets ruined by people who just like to stir up trouble by calling names etc and abusing the system and it will continue as it is human nature for some people to ruin it for the rest of us.
Sorry but I just think this is stupid. When I am talking on CoD with my friends I just want to talk to them not some 10 year old kid who's yelling at his mom to bring him koolade...
I also don't like the stupid noob children who think they are "gangsta" and start yelling profanity every nine seconds. I remember this one time a kid kept on calling people racist names in the game when ever they would kill him.
The way I see it is if little johnny wants to sound like a person who never made it out of the first grade, he can do that by himself.
