And can you join random games with others?
I actually agree with r3 for once, idk why games have gone away from the dedicated lobby. One of the reasons D2/ WC3 custom/ games like socom were awesome was seeing a titled room for a game style you wanted to play or trade etc.
Haven't tried the xbox version in a while, I dont think you can do this on the xbox
But on PC you can make a public party and name it, so everyone searching the public party tab can read it.
Theres also global chats (several channels not just one for the whole server, but you can change global messaging channels) to simply type to everyone in that channel (unless they turned it off).
Theres a dedicated global channel for sharing in game missions and challenges pertaining to that league, theres also trade channels
(but no one really trades like that anymore) except for a specific channel for selling in game services, like missions and carries etc.
Also I dont think any of this is on the console version, (it wasnt on xbox when I tried it out)
On console you can walk up to people you see in town and trade them, maybe add them and talk via the consoles communication method(e.g. an xbox live party chat).
There isnt much of a reason to play it on console other than if you cant play it on PC
