Subject: DirectPlay Voice in Direct X 8
EuroGamer.net did a nice article on a new feature in DirectX 8. None of the game manufactures have been using DirectPlay from the previous releases of DirectX. So Microsoft is adding in DirectPlay Voice which will give games real-time voice support without them having to develope their own software. It will be doing this at speeds of 64kbit/s down to 1.2kbit/s depending on the quality needed. This will mean that you will have the ability to use it over a dial-up connection and not choke the line for bandwidth. You can read the whole article here.
