Xbox One Will Support Xbox 360 Headsets, With An Adapter
Just when you thought you would be forced to fork out another few thousand for a good headset on the Xbox One, here come Microsoft to change that too. Along with the announcement that developers would no longer be charged for patches on the Xbox 360, Microsoft have revealed that they will release an adapter that will allow existing headsets to work with the Xbox One.
Previously, Microsoft had stated that current headsets would not be compatible with the Xbox One due to some physical port changes, but now the company has revealed that they will release an adapter to mend this issue.

“We are working to develop an adapter for current wired headsets to connect. More details as we approach launch.”
This comes straight after the announcement that the standard headset would not come bundled with the Xbox One, forcing users to make use of the Kinect 2 for voice chat initially. There’s no word yet as to whether this adapter will be included in the box or not, but having it in there will certainly do a world of good those those with headsets they aren’t ready to part with just yet.
Sony, on the other hand, have no released any information regarding their headset plans. The new DualShock 4 features an audio jack on the controller, but whether this will be compatible with current PS3 headsets is still up in the wind. Additionally, Sony has yet to confirm that Bluetooth headsets will continue to be compatible, but one would expect that they will be.
Microsoft are chopping and changing things for the better nearly daily now, so stay tuned for more.
