No Cross-Platform Chat Between Xbox One and 360

In IGN’s second “Ask Microsoft Anything” session, Marc Whiten stated that users will only be able to conduct text chat between the two consoles. This contradicts earlier reports stated there would be the ability to have voice cross-platform chat.

This was an expected development after Microsoft touted the Xbox One’s “better than phone” voice quality which is because the chat headset streams 24kHz at 16 bits (both down and up stream) compared to the Xbox 360’s 16kHz down and 8kHz up stream.
