New Xbox Live article

The folks over at ZDNet wrote a very interesting article about Microsoft’s highly anticipated Xbox Live service. The article has some very useful information for everyone who is interested in Xbox Live, and that has to be a large portion of you! Here is a bit of the story:
"Microsoft is making a big deal about the Xbox’s ability to deliver voice communications over the network. While I was initially skeptical about this feature, a few minutes with my "communicator" persuaded me otherwise. I seriously underestimated the pleasure of trash-talking my opponents. (I’m far better at witty banter than I am at actually playing the games--which says more about my gaming abilities than my razor-sharp wit.) Though there was a noticeable delay, the sound quality was quite good. The system allows parents to turn off voice features and gamers to report verbally abusive opponents. But for me, the coolest feature was voice masking, which allows gamers to run their voice through any number of filters. Other than a Microsoft-required "anonymous" mask, game developers can add any other masks they like. NFL Fever 2003 included more than a dozen, including "cheerleader," "linebacker," and the particularly frightening "balloon vendor," which sounded something like my grandmother on helium (or at least what I expect she’d sound like under such circumstances)."
