THE BUZZ: The Xbox 360 version of Dark Souls doesn’t allow users to be connected to party chat while playing online.

Joining a party while in an online game will prompt the following message:

“Cannot continue game because you are in party chat. Returning to title screen…”

Whereas attempting to start a game while in an Xbox Live party gives this message:

“You are in a party session. Online Mode is inaccessible. Game will start in Offline Mode.”

EGM’s TAKE: Stopping users from using party chat is something that has never been popular.
