We need voice chat!

so i was thinking, multiplayer games like mc: sandstorm, nova, BIA2, and cod:zombies would be even awesomer if they had online voice chat. IT would be just like the consoles. it would be so amazing. not to mention all iphones have built in microphones(duh) and 3g ipods come with external microphones and you can buy them for other touches relatively cheaply. come on, you have to admit its a good idea!

You could actually coordinate defenses in Zombies & plan offenses in the other games.

The main problem with voice chat is the bandwidth required. Remeber that Xbox live is a subscription service, whereas Openfeint and the various other iPhone equivalents are not. Perhaps it could be done as an in-app purchase, though...
