    Xbox One adapter for Xbox 360 headsets inbound

    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. Thereis an official headset, though.
    Both Mad Catz and Turtle Beach have said they’ll be developing peripherals for the new console as well.http://www.vg247.com/2013/06/27/xbox...dsets-inbound/

    yeah, damn those companies for wanting to make money to continue to make products...



    side note, yes I am pissed they changed the port. I had just bought an Earforce set from Turtle Beach like a few months ago, that is now obsolete unless they make an adapter.

    Can you imagine some kids mom walking into the room and saying something like
    "I thought I told you to turn that Xbox off "

    and it shuts off.

    It doesn't just cherry pick the words. even my kinect right now won't pick out keywords in the middle of a sentence. it has to be deliberate commands.

    Kinect knows whos in the room and doesn't take commands from random people walking by.

    About the audio thing, if your a guy that bought and expensive Turtle Beach head set you'll still be able to use it with the adapter, i think Nyko is making one too.

    I understand the need/want to make money, but to change something like that just to bring in more cash is just not cool, especially when the new design doesn't bring anything new to the table...

    i agree, it is stupid, but at the same time i will never really disparage a company for looking out for themselves. If they didn't from time to time, we'd not be enjoying these consoles.

    Yes, it pisses me off and is stupid to have a proprietary connector for the headset, but in the end, it isn't a big deal... unless they don't make my adapter LMAO

    It doesn't bother so much that it is proprietary, it just pissed me off that they change the type of plug, just to have you spend more money. Drove me up the wall as a kid so see Nintendo do it with the SNES while Sega kept the same controller plug for the Genesis.

    It's my understanding that the new input on the controller gives you their new digital wideband technology for voice and audio, something the standard jack didn't support.

    I support that change.

    that change COULD have been implemented without changing the jacks physical size I believe.

    However, if it couldn't have been,... then fine

    I just want my $#@!ing 100 dollar headset to work so I can hear the people taunt me when I die

    Good. That means I won't have to replace my headsets so far. Although, I'll have to buy the adapter lol.
