    OMG. There is a free friggin headset in the box!! use it!!

    One of the things I was most excited about the ps4 was putting a headset port on the controller and including one. I always felt bluetooth was cool but more than the average gamer will deal with. I really thought this was the biggest thing the xbox did that made live so good was everyone had a headset and it was both easy and cheap to get/replace/use.

    that said, the ps4 is the same way... yet everygame of bf4 I've played i've only seen one guy with a head set.... it makes me so mad....

    is it just me or....
    I'm no hero, never was, never will be.

    Haven't used the headset yet but the speaker in the controller is amazing, i never thought the sound quality would be that good.
    Resogun makes great use of it.

    WOW harsh much? Yeah I agree with the OP on this one, while party chat allows for people to avoid the assholes on the internet, XBOX LIVE's party chat ruined all communication their games; I've played on xbox live and no one ever talks to each other. And that is lame as hell. I play games for the very reason of playing with and talking to people, you may be okay with people just being inward and exclusive, but that goes against everything the ps4 is supposed to be doing with social gaming. So, consequently, WE WON'T JUST DEAL WITH IT. "Cold and mean people give me the creeps"

    You know what's funny? I didn't even think of that!! HA. That would explain the lack of people on BF4 talking to each other. Yeah, Mullah is probably right.

    yep, it's the party chat. I use party chat with my friends playing BF4. I like it and I don't have to rely on EA/DICE crappy handling of VoIP issues they've had with almost every Battlefield game.

    Developers have the option to disable the option when playing their games. (I believe MW2 did this)

    Usually when I'm in with my friends and we're in party chat...I'll suggest that we switch over to the game chat instead so we can talk with our fellow squad members...but during the pre-lobby, you never hear a word from anyone.
    I realize it's a shiny, new feature on the PS4..but the novelty will wear off and soon things will settle down I think...
    What really does it is when there are 3-4 in party chat, and you try to join-up on a team DM...and one of you gets put on the other team...then you kill your friend and hear them say " ARRRRGGGG YOU MUTHAFKKKKA"...
    then they realize you're all in party chat together...

    Ok...so this didn't happen to me (killing someone)...I actually got killed and before I looked at WHO killed me, I had let out a line of sailor-like terminology that most would prolly make most sailors blush.

    Thats you tho isn't it. Much like the op's title, regardless if theres a headset in the box, people don't wanna use it? $#@! happens...usually people just chat $#@! and/or start moaning like little $#@!es anyways so, at least for me, it's better to sack it. Had about a dozen games where i use my headset...other than that, depends on what sorta plebs are playin. And conseqentially, you will have to DEAL WITH IT. What ya gonna do?

    I will make damn sure that anyone I play with doesn't exclusive use party chat- Quite frankly it's the attitude with which people are responding, mainly you and mullah, that bothers me more than anything, if you people wanna be stuck up like that then it's your choice, but I won't play with people like that. But thanks for the challenge? lol

    I mainly play FPS games on line and when I do I normally have a fairly large party. We prefer the party chat system as we all know each other and sometimes discuss life in general. To be honest without the system in place I would never talk that much. How often do you go on line and a full team is chatting up a storm? I have yet to see it really.

    Since BF4 doesn't have an in game party feature you're pretty much forced to use the party chat if your going to play with your friends. It's pretty difficult to get organized and discuss what mode to play without any kind of party feature.

    You don't have to use that headset btw. You can use other types and it will recognize. My iPhone earbuds work in chat.

    I guess everyone is on party chat since I'm yet to hear someone on a headset when playing BF4.

    I wasn't trying to sound like a jackass in my first post, but it is the reality of things. When I play solo, I usually I'm not in a party so I do talk and that's how I make new friends even if they are not talking back. If they realized someone on the squad was using there mics, they do switch to game volume.
    I think the party leader should have the option to switch everyone to game audio

    So should I have long chats with 12 year old boosting on cod cause that's the sony spirit or will I chat with my friends using the new feature sony included just so people could go against their ethos. Hard choice

    As a gamer who doesn't have a lot of friends on PSN with PS4 yet, I really despise the double sword that is party chat; Yes it helps keep internet trolls from ruining the flow of voice chat in a game but it also prevents anyone from making new friendships or squad mates...

    People should chat with whomever they feel like chatting. This is supposed to be *fun*, not some kind of obligation!
