    Hi folks,
    i just found this X02 event video from Gamespot, where they show the XBox Live registration/login process, a bit of MP gameplay (Whacked) and what i found very interesting, they demo the voice masking presets. Sounds really amazing, i wouldn't have thought that the quality of the masking is that good. Too bad the overall sound quality of the clip isn't that great. But still...
    Sorry if this is old news.
    Regards
    Bjoern

    Thanks, Bjoern! I had my doubts about how Voice Masking would sound, but if that's how it ends up being in production, I'm very impressed.... [​IMG]

    OMG! The voice masking seems to work perfectly. Its a little too convincing to me. I think the "Teenage Girl" well get some peeps into trouble. [​IMG]

    I can't wait to try it out. My teenage girl persona has been gathering dust since I quit frequenting chatrooms a couple of years ago but Cynthia just might be making a comeback:b

    MS will have the sense to have a disable voice masking option on the gaming hosts end, right? Surely! Or at the very least an option to check the other players' settings to see if anyone is using it? The voice demo was impressive, but a dangerous feature nevertheless. Not sure that I like it.

    I'm not liking the voice masking. mainly because some of them are very annoying and hard to understand.

    I still prefer text. I'll just feel goofy talking to my tv set.

    Ah...someone that never played "Sea Man", I see... [​IMG] Don't think of it as talking to your TV. Think of it as having your friend on the telephone while you kick his ass at NFL2K3 or something...
    Well, Kelley, you will have the option to mute anyone whose voice annoys you...

    I can see potential uses for this outside of gameplay, like chat rooms, for example. The "Teenage Girl" voice might come in handy in my continued online stalking of R. Kelly. (Sorry, I know, R. Kelly jokes are so last month. [​IMG])
    On the subject, Seaman was brilliant, like everyone else I spent most of my time teaching it swear words.

    dont knock the voice masking just yet ,..yeah its silly on nfl2k3 or in whacked but for anyone whos played unreal tournament will know that hearing that robot voice after getting fragged sure will be intimidating and possibly add to the game.nevertheless getting fragged by a "child" would simply suck.

    I have to admit - the different voices are very impressive. That female robot would've been great for my RAcaseal in PSO.
