Should still have a voice masker, to mask out those annoying little 12 year old kids

I wouldn't be surprised if it did, the PS3 lets you alter the pitch of your mic.

Yes. It was used on Halo 2 in-game all the time. I heard it a few times on Tom Clancy I believe too. Maybe the games added them and not XBL directly, but it was there.

This. It was in Halo 2 IIRC.

God, I love those old videos! I remember this one specifically...

It was on an old Xbox DVD video that I can't remember where I got from. I do remember it contained this ad as well.

Another thing I remember was trying to get on Dark Master's friend list back then. I eventually did, and ended up playing a bit of Return to Castle Wolfenstein with them. I was only a kid. :p

It definitely was used here in the UK, but not for long.

I remember seeing it at least once on tv. I think during the Super Bowl.

wow, i didnt realize that this 'Dark Master' gamertag was actually real... i wonder if 'Crusher' or any of the other tags like 'Cheese Filter' they show in the video are real too? they look cheesy but they are like the de-facto gamertags

I never looked up the others, but they probably are real and still around. They're pretty common-sounding names, so they probably would have been snapped up a long time ago. I just checked Crusher, and yep, it's real. So is Bumpy (albeit, unused). Along with all the other gamertags on Dark Master's team in the ad: Siberias (again, unused), Buffalo Soldier, Pochi X (unused), Steel Crumpets, Sleeping Giant, and the AFC Captain Carnage.

I've just remembered what I didn't like about the ad: that those two games (Chrono Warriors & World Cup Warriors) never existed. :p

For those of you who can remember, Im only 23 but still... XBL beta with MotoGP and Whacked (omg whacked!!!) voice masking was definitely used in game, if not also in the default XBL options (the last part im not sure on).
