Re: Total Noob getting owned every 5 Seconds. Literally. Help would be appreciated.

Mar 27, 2013

Have to say this Thread is not filling me with confidence for my impending foray into the World of SH Online Play.

 

Think I will reach out to my friends for some Private Matches first.  Question for this, is a headset necessary?

A headset is not nessasary, but it would help.

Yeah, I figure it might make it easier to get direction and tips from people.  I am not going to run out and spend $100+ on a headset though.

 

I might have to pick up one of the PS Bluetooth Nodes or something.

Any Bluetooth headset will work in the beginning. A good over the ear set with 5.1 or 7.1 will make a world of difference in all of your games.

While I would love nothing more than to run out and get the $250 Turtle Beach Beauty, I am not confident my Wife would appreciate that.  As well, there are so many other things I could do with that money.

 

I have surround in my living room, so sound is not a huge factor for me.  The $30-$40 in ear piece should suit for communications I figure.

 

I have a Jabra Blue Tooth piece the PS3 recognizes and registers, but it has never worked for BF3.  Not sure if that was a BF3 thing, or if the system, while showing it active, is just not liking the link.  Not sure.

 

I agree though, from playing online with the computer, having a headset, where you can hear the grass rustle in the breeze, is infinitely helpful when listening for clues to enemy approaches and positions.  Just not in the budget though.:smileysad:

I have a Sony Ps3 blue thooth and it seems to work just fine, it was 40$. If I would have gotten a 250$ one my wife would have probably punched me!

Not going to hold my breath on that one.  If my Wife had her way, she would set the PS3 on fire.  She HATES Video Games.:smileyindifferent:

Most of the time they just hate that we spend time paying attention to video games and when we do we generally seem completely content and happy.  The lady's mind goes "Why doesn't he spend that time like that with me being all happy and content like that"  :smileytongue:   Then there is the rare type of lady that gets mad because you are hogging the PS3 and SHE wants to play something!  

 

You'll be ok Moble, any cheap cell phone blutooth that is compatable with the PS3 will be good enough to communicate your questions.  

 

I had this one for 4 years, came free with my purchase of Warhawk back in 2007 :smileytongue:   http://www.amazon.com/Jabra-BT125-Bluetooth-Headset-Black/dp/B000J4HCBM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=13643...
