Yes absolutely. We talked about this a while back I think.
Question, can the PS4 do this to? And this is not no fanboy bs, i geniunely want to know
Yeah pretty much. You can plug in headphones into the controller itself.
Yes, it does. http://www.pushsquare.com/n...
yeah didn't that main guy on twitter (can't recall his name for the life of me) say that game audio can be pumped through it
Alright, thanks guys, i thought it could but wanted to be sure
@Maria That link you posted says you can use the port on the controller for game audio OR chat. Can it not do both? Serious question how does it work?
Non-fanboy-response buuut. Isn't that....an obvious question? Like, Sony makes Sony Pulse headsets and stuff and Sony Wireless Stereo headsets which are essentially for PS3 so it's like....being that Sony is a multimedia company that makes loads of other electronics and hardware.... Them not allowing headset use....just would be weird.
Yes, it was recently confirmed by Shu Yoshida.
Yes it also can which is great for all maried gamers
2.1 stereo sound from the PS4 controller. 7.1 surround from the One controller (that's what the proprietary connection and Wi-Fi bandwidth is for). It's not the huge advantage it seems though. As other people have said, you can use Sony's pulse headset or any number of wireless headsets that support SP/DIF optical.
@Volkama Link please, cuz i have never heard anything about the X1 doing 7.1 ch. surround while the PS4 does 2.1 ch. stereo
Yup it can..it was. confirmed some days ago....nice that the xbox can do this too....for late night gaming in the living room.
Dantesparda, I'm only referring to sound via the controller. I'm sure both consoles support 7.1 surround, and probably identical Dolby stickers (I'm not a huge audiophile, i don't know what the latest sound features are. I love good surround though). The capability was detailed some time ago. I really don't feel like battling my iPhone browser to find a link. The Xbox One turtle beach sets make use of it. I'm actually looking out for a good headset at the moment. I want a wireless set that supports both consoles and my pc. Any sp/dif set would have been ok, but the Xbox voice chat is a bit of a ball ache. Nobody is talking about a truly universal set yet, but I'm sure it'll come before long.
Didnt it do this last gen? Everyone got tutrlebeaches for COD footsteps or something?
Headset had to plugged into Console for game sound, not just the controller.
"Anything Sony say we can can say 48 hours later!"
Yep. Him answering a question on twitter is copying Sony.
lmao.....i know right
Good now everyone can enjoy easy late night gaming :)
That is a cool feature to get.
the headsets have audio? this is like technology from the future!
I was really hoping for this. This is really awesome news.
I kinda figured it could. If PS4 could do if over bluetooth, than surly Microsoft could make it happen over Wifi Direct. Nice to see the companies are still trying to one up each other. These are going to be the best systems ever.
This is about Wired connections not wireless btw :p
Oh I see. Got you.
I wonder how this will work with my existing turtle beach as I don't really want to buy another just yet. I assume I will still be able to use the pass through to my 5.1 amp as I do now. That will deal with game sound but for chat I still need to be able to plug it into my controller...?? Anyone seen this rumored adapter for the XB1 controller yet?
We do it to.
was this ever seriously in doubt?
I never even thought this was an issue for either console
