Sony's making all the right moves for the start of next gen.

It's crazy when you think how things started for them this gen.

Damn straight! My Astro A50's will be MAGNIFICENT for PS4 games!!

I had 2 xboxes only for 5 years and then I got smart and got a PS3. Even then, when all I played was xbox, I was always secretly jealous of the PS3. The only problem is I was pissed at the expensive price. Even when it launched, the lineup was way better than the 360s. I remember wanting a PS3 just to play Resistance because it was an old school shooter, unlike Halo with its 2 gun limit :( The 360 had slightly upgraded Xbox 1 games and none of them were good. Their best game was COD 2 and that was a port. So I really don't see why people say PS3 was a disaster. It still sold out, and still outsold the 360 every year so where exactly is the failure?

@ articale, this is great news!!! i just bot the Pulse headset last week, and i was worried it would not work on a PlayStation4.
Fergusonxplainsall  +   940d ago
This is great news, I got my Pulses the day they came out. If the Pulse GTAV Elites go to a good price, I'll buy them too.

They're just that good..
nosferatuzodd  +   940d ago
ok that's good but what about my platronics blue tooth does that work has well i want to know..
badz149  +   940d ago
Bluetooth devices will work by default. Bluetooth is a standard afterall
nosferatuzodd  +   940d ago
ok thanks for the info
badz149  +   940d ago
"SONY, we want you to force us to use an adapter for old headset!!"

- said no gamer EVER!
nosferatuzodd  +   940d ago
lol
S2Killinit  +   941d ago
thats good news. I like that about Sony.
PSN_ZeroOnyx  +   941d ago
Was there ever a doubt? I don't think so.
Reborn  +   940d ago
Well, clarification is always welcomed.
PSN_ZeroOnyx  +   940d ago
I knew well before this clarification
KwietStorm  +   940d ago
Yea? You forgot the quotes around "knew."
PSN_ZeroOnyx  +   940d ago
Not needed
sigfredod  +   941d ago
Good to be confirm, no wasted money for those 7.1 headsets
JW1080  +   941d ago
This is good to know. I have the Sony 5.1 headset. Might give the ones I have now to my brother. And upgrade to the 7.1 Pulse Elites.
onyoursistersback  +   940d ago
lol...i did the same thing, i just sold my 5.1 to my sis for 15 bucks. and bot the Pulse headset.

FYI, they work best on your Mp3/music!!! :D
KwietStorm  +   940d ago
You sold them to your sister...for 15 bucks? lol why didn't you just give them to her?
NexGen  +   940d ago
Both headsets are great, the pulse elite is a better quality headset. The old pulse has better battery life though.
mkotechno  +   941d ago
Time to buy a Sony Pulse.
6DEAD6END6  +   941d ago
I'll be getting one really soon too.
GoldPunch-TR  +   941d ago

Get the Pulse Elite
CaptainYesterday  +   940d ago
Thank you God....I mean Sony this is great news!
_FantasmA_  +   940d ago
Sony is real. I can see Sony and they perform miracles everyday unlike that other guy.
nosferatuzodd  +   940d ago
dude you can tell lots of xbots in here disagreeing with post
_FantasmA_  +   940d ago
xbots are like religous fanatics. They never see anything wrong and will defend the hand that they think feeds them until death. Its almost sad, almost. Nah who am I kidding. We need smart people on the good side. Racist, homophobes can stay on that other side. Don't come over to PSN.
moegooner88  +   940d ago
Really glad about this.
No_Limit  +   940d ago
Great news for potential PS4 owners. Darn, I wish the Xbox One can have the same capability. That is the one thing that really bugged the heck out of me about the XB1; hopefully MS will go through with their proposed adapter; otherwise, MY wireless Astro A50 will be reserved only for my future PS4.

That's really great news!
Godmars290  +   940d ago
With both consoles using Bluetooth, would be hard to believe you couldn't at least use Bluetooth devices.
onyoursistersback  +   940d ago
sonys PlayStation headsets don't run on bluetooth...FYI.

But aside from that, yes full Bluetooth support.
MrBeatdown  +   940d ago
I don't know about the fancy headphones, but the official headsets for chatting do use Bluetooth.
drsfinest72  +   940d ago
WiFi direct is still better technology for headsets and controllers than Bluetooth
C-Thunder  +   940d ago
Ok.
d_dogg2007  +   940d ago
Sony, what can I say... Simply the greatest console manufacturer and publisher of all time!!
Dagobert  +   940d ago
Nice, I can still use the official PlayStation 3 headset for this. I love those, they're big but they're not heavy at all, and don't even hurt the ears.
DaGR8JIBRALTAR  +   940d ago
good ol sony! I have the astro a50's but I think I'll pick up the pulse headsets this weekend...for shits and giggles. anybody knows if they're any good?

Dagobert  +   940d ago
If you're an audiophile like a hardcore one then not even the astro a50's are good let alone these Sony ones. But yeah the one before the Pulse came out was good and that's the one I have. For it's price it's really good, it's really comfortable, the microphone audio quality is great. I'm sure the Pulse would be better than that if not the same.
DaGR8JIBRALTAR  +   940d ago
thanks..I've got a $55 off coupon for them, I was thinking. .why not? personally, I thought the headsets before the elites were shitty.
GABRIEL1030  +   940d ago
Nice work Sony, you are great!
AgentSmithPS4  +   940d ago
I feel sorry for the xbone players that want mic teamwork in BF4 etc (I used to be a 360 player until it died), they will have to hear all that background noise from the kinect, things like screaming kids, mom yelling at them, game sounds from the tv, family sounds, people talking to themselves but somehow they can't hear you, etc...
I am worried that my turtle beach x12's with the dss2 won't work with the ps4 though :(. What wired headset do you recommend for ps4 if it won't work, and does the new ps4 controller recharge while you play or at least not go dead if it's plugged in with usb?
ExPresident  +   940d ago
This is awesome. I have the 5.1 Sony pair, is it worth it to upgrade to the Pulse Elites?
KwietStorm  +   940d ago
In my opinion, yes. More features, better build quality, can be updated for specific game presets, wireless, built in mic (no boom), and you can use them with your phone or other devices too.

Great , now if they could confirm my racing wheel Logitech g25 or 27 to work I would b happy.
SynestheticRoar  +   940d ago
Awesome I definitely did not want to but another head set.
isarai  +   940d ago
I thought they would, but it's nice to hear it officially, can't wait to use my PULSE headset on Killzone, Watchdogs, and inFamous
level 360  +   940d ago
Quite certain the Pulse Elite Manager ( P.E.M. ) app will recieve an update once PS4 is released.

Also expecting Sony will add a couple more audio preset modes for the PS4.

*( NaughtyDog has specifically made their own audio preset of TLoU game just for the Sony Pulse Elite ).
