    If you're in a party chat and the controller goes idle or shuts off will you lose voice chat? Can the controller be programmed to not shut off after the set time?

    Thanks.

    I think that if their is voice coming through the controller's port it will not go idle.
    Honestly, I don't know though.

    Are you having naughty time chats that require hands elsewhere?

    I wish.

    Nah, I'm just trying to avoid spending money on a USB headset for my PS3. Next weekend my best friend and I plan on doing nothing from Friday-Sunday except play Resident Evil 5 co-op. We both have Live but only he has a PS3 headset.

    If you can buy the console, you can buy the headset.

    Please don't pretend to know what my current financial situation is now compared to when I picked up my PS3 back in 2006. Thank you.

    To actually answer his question. I believe when the controller goes idle and powers off, the voice chat will be shunted to your TV's speakers. I seem to recall having that happen to me one night a while back when I was playing Halo 3 with some friends. I had to answer the call of nature after a game, and got sidetracked on the way back, allowing my controller to go idle and power off. When I came back into the room, my buddies voices were coming thru my TV's speakers instead of my headset. But once I powered the controller back up it went back to the headset.

    But I'm not 100% positive. I could be remembering that wrong or it was a Halo 3 thing. I don't know what will happen in the regular dashboard voice chat.
