Xbox One: Microsoft 'looking into including headsets with console'

By
Microsoft is "looking into" bundling headsets with the Xbox One, it has been suggested.

Responding to a question about headsets on Twitter, Microsoft's Albert Penello said that the company was listening to feedback and considering its options.


Microsoft previously revealed that the Xbox One would not ship with headsets because of Kinect.

Kinect features noise-filtering technology, and can be used to chat in-game and over Skype.

Xbox 360 headset compatibility was also ruled out, although Xbox support has since tweeted plans to release a wireless headset adaptor.

In the meantime, fans can pre-order the official Xbox One chat headset, which features mute and volume controls, and connects to the Xbox One Wireless Controller without the need for additional batteries.

The Xbox One will launch in 21 countries in November, priced at $499 in North America and £429 in the UK.
