Xbox One to have adapter for Xbox 360 wired headsets / Pic of the Sony "Headset"



quote:

Microsoft is working on an adapter allowing you to use Xbox 360 wired headsets with the Xbox One.

The news comes via the Xbox Support Twitter account, responding to a question about whether existing headsets will work with the new console.

“We are working to develop an adapter for current wired headsets to connect. More details as we approach launch,” a representative said.

The Xbox One will not come bundled with a headset, because the Kinect, which is included in every package and required for the console to function, will perform basic voice chat duties. There is an official headset, though.

Both Mad Catz and Turtle Beach have said they’ll be developing peripherals for the new console as well.

Sony released a pic of everything that comes with the PS4. That's a headset?

I think they are just throwing in something cheap just to say they have a headset

Yep. Can probably use it with your phone as well.

I bet the headset adapter will cost 20 bucks or so




Which is about 5x what that PS4 headset is worth

Looks like a cell phone style headset to me. I don't see anything wrong with it as a pack-in. People who are more serious about voice chat in games will buy something else, of course.

It looks like a bigger POS than the crap the 360 threw in this gen and that's saying something.

For what it's worth Pulse Headsets should still work with the PS4 without an adapter and possibly other headsets.

I found a link with more on this before but can't find it now. But here is a tweet

Especially in one ear. That just seems uncomfortable.

The real question is will the One allow me to use my plastic 360 headset still?

Sony has a regular 3.5 MM jack on it's controller for headphones. It seems like anything will work on them. Has that ever even been a question?

It probably is, but this style of earbuds w/ mic can be decent or at least serviceable for anyone wanting to get their feet wet with online gaming.

But if you gave me the option of using the PS4 solution or screaming over my kids, wife, and dog, hoping the Kinect mic is picking up what I'm saying, I'll take the PS4 option over the Xbox One "solution."

ETA: For what it's worth, if I was seriously going to play online, I'd buy a headset for either system.

Guess not. I didn't know that about the controller having that.

The headset is probably voice chat only. So it pretty much needs to be only 1 ear.

Serious question...why don't you PS3 people buy a good headset?

No one on PSN has mics and if they do it's that shitty bluetooth that makes you feel like you are talking to someone on a CB radio. I never understood it.

ETA: Maybe the cross game chat will encourage more people on PS4 to buy good headsets.

Why even include shite like this? If you're using that piece of shit, either it a Sony piece of shite or a Microsoft piece of shit, you're not doing it right anyway.

ETA: To answer stout's headset question, we all pretty much have good headsets. A few have the Pulse, some have TB's...

But it cost Sony .25 cents to have it made by a 12 year Chinese kid so why not include it for marketing purposes?
