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.

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  +   861d 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..

ok that's good but what about my platronics blue tooth does that work has well i want to know..
badz149  +   861d ago
Bluetooth devices will work by default. Bluetooth is a standard afterall
nosferatuzodd  +   861d ago
ok thanks for the info
badz149  +   861d ago
"SONY, we want you to force us to use an adapter for old headset!!"

Was there ever a doubt? I don't think so.

Well, clarification is always welcomed.
PSN_ZeroOnyx  +   861d ago
I knew well before this clarification
KwietStorm  +   861d ago
Yea? You forgot the quotes around "knew."

Not needed

Good to be confirm, no wasted money for those 7.1 headsets
JW1080  +   862d 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  +   861d 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  +   861d ago
You sold them to your sister...for 15 bucks? lol why didn't you just give them to her?
NexGen  +   861d ago
Both headsets are great, the pulse elite is a better quality headset. The old pulse has better battery life though.
mkotechno  +   862d ago
Time to buy a Sony Pulse.
6DEAD6END6  +   862d ago
I'll be getting one really soon too.

Get the Pulse Elite
CaptainYesterday  +   861d ago
Thank you God....I mean Sony this is great news!
_FantasmA_  +   861d ago
Sony is real. I can see Sony and they perform miracles everyday unlike that other guy.
nosferatuzodd  +   861d ago
dude you can tell lots of xbots in here disagreeing with post
_FantasmA_  +   861d 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  +   861d ago
Really glad about this.
No_Limit  +   861d 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.

With both consoles using Bluetooth, would be hard to believe you couldn't at least use Bluetooth devices.
onyoursistersback  +   861d ago
sonys PlayStation headsets don't run on bluetooth...FYI.

But aside from that, yes full Bluetooth support.
MrBeatdown  +   861d ago
I don't know about the fancy headphones, but the official headsets for chatting do use Bluetooth.
drsfinest72  +   861d ago
WiFi direct is still better technology for headsets and controllers than Bluetooth

d_dogg2007  +   861d ago
Sony, what can I say... Simply the greatest console manufacturer and publisher of all time!!
Dagobert  +   861d 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  +   861d 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  +   861d 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  +   861d 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  +   861d ago
Nice work Sony, you are great!
AgentSmithPS4  +   861d 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  +   861d ago
This is awesome. I have the 5.1 Sony pair, is it worth it to upgrade to the Pulse Elites?
KwietStorm  +   861d 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  +   861d ago
Awesome I definitely did not want to but another head set.
isarai  +   861d 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  +   861d 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 ).
