No Battlefield 3 VOIP Changes Today

DICE's Daniel "zh1nt0" Matros tweets that the Battlefield 3 patch promised for today will not include any changes to voice communication in the military shooter sequel (thanks joao). Here's word:

WeŽre keeping the voip as it is right now. By increasing to this level of functionality we would have to make the VOIP solution a part of the game installation, which we currently don’t want from a business perspective.

I mean its not like VOIP has been standard in FPS since like original CS days or anything, right?

It took 2 years and 3 months (v1.3) to get voice chat added into CS.
Yes yes, I played the beta of the original CS. But that was what, over 10 years ago? And since then valve has put VOIP into all their multiplayer games without fail as far as I know.

Get PC version, join a clan, use their ventrilo or team speak, or a public vent if you don't want to join a group.
The way it is, the way it should be.
Huh? So are you knocking companies like valve for including it built into the game? If you don't want to use a game's built in VOIP because your clan prefers something else, just turn it off, but if a game doesn't have it in the first place, then there's not even an option to use it. Far better to HAVE the option for people who need it, than to just deny it to everyone. When I play games without voip like BFBC2, I usually end up not using VOIP period.
