Xbox One Headset Adapter Delayed Until 2014

Last week, we learned that the PlayStation 4’s audio options would be a tiny bit limited at launch. Mainly due to Bluetooth and USB based headphone chat being non-applicable, a post release patch will be issued in 2014. Similarly, Microsoft’s top, 3rd party headsets will be pushed into 2014 also,  due to a delay on the promised headset adapter.

Microsoft Will Not Offer Free Headset with Xbox One

In yet another marketing blunder by Microsoft, they have revealed that they will not be packaging a headset with their next gen Xbox One system. While it seems like a poor decision, Microsoft has publicly stated that they hope that players will turn to the Kinect for their voice chat needs. The mandatory Kinect, while capable of serving as a means of communicating with others over Xbox Live, has obvious negative implications involved with its use. The most egregious offense is that when we go online, we will not only hear people's voices, but we will also hear all of the background noise that goes along with it. The Kinect is also not ideal for gamers who are hearing impaired, or those that have children with sensitive ears. A simple and cheap headset would alleviate the issue, but it seems Microsoft's plans are much more exacting than that.
