I see everyone saying that old technology is 'sufficient' to do the job and that it is reliable. If reliability is such an issue, don't we have redundancy for that? Isn't anyone thinking of the potential of having state of the art technology? Use the processing power for the AI or something.
Play and talk at the same time? Don't need to pause the game you're on, just hit a button somewhere to answer it.
As long as the games does not have voice recognition then we're fine. Still... there is a risk of blurting out conversations in the game especially while playing RPG.:P
