What's the point of Live enabled MMOs if you can't talk live? Or did I miss something? The world seemed very sterile and empty, which doesn't work for me in this day and age.
I know the game is coming out on systems other than XBox 360, but I am not sure if everyone plays in the same world or not. So, either there is no live chat because of that or just because it is a quick and dirty port.
From my understanding, the 360 version is in a world seperate from the others. In other words, you'll only play with other 360 players. Which means that if there isn't any sort of live chat (and you're forced to stick with the built in keyboard), this game will bomb and bomb hard in multiplayer. Absolutely terrible design decision not to use the items that all players who own a 360 have.
