Picture a night of Halo 2 mayhem. Sweat dripping down each brow, eyes glued to the television, constant bantering between players. The end of a round has come. Everyone pauses to communicate. Somebody says, â€œWait for me, Iâ€™ve got to use the restroom.â€ Unfortunately in order to speak, you have to be connected to your headset, which is connected to the controller, which is then connected to the Xbox, meaning you have to be in the same room as your battle station. Those days are over my friend. Go get yourself the Logitech wireless xbox headset.
After the round, I walk across my apartment slowly with no intention to rush due to my wireless freedom. I can still hear the action in the kitchen while I crack open a Zywiec (polish beer). Itâ€™s a constant portal into the virtual world at all times. As I guzzle my beverage an idea comes upon me.
The next morning I fired up the Xbox and created a party in Halo 2. Then I put on my headset, turned off the television, but kept the Xbox on, and walked around the house doing my morning chores. About an hour or so later, while I was brushing my teeth, I hear Chizzler on the other end. We were able to have a conversation without calling each other, or better yet, knowing when it was about to start.
I suspect in the future, everyone will be wearing headsets and communicating this way. There wonâ€™t be phone calls anymore, anytime you want to speak to somebody, you just say â€œWhere you at?â€ Personally, I canâ€™t wait for the future. You too can join in on the fun. Iâ€™m never going back to wired communication.
