That blows. I was looking forward to having good audio day one. Guess ill stick with the garbage pack in mic at launch.

That definatley blows. I still have my surround sound as backup, but that still sucks. Sucks and blows

Yea sucks alil but..way to go MS

Apparently, the Turtle Beach Headset for PS4 will work at launch.

Either way, Microsoft should have place the wireless (That the 360 had) inside the console rather than having an adapter that you have to pay extra to play the headset you already own.

Both wireless are own by Microsoft. How hard would it have been to make them retro-compatible? Blue-Tooth does it with each new versions, again, why no Blue-Tooth support? It's universal.

But, that's just me.
Feel free to disagree if you think you should not have gotten more for your money at 499$.

uhh Turtle Beach isn't the only good brand.

People get too attached to a name and then act like that name is the only good thing.

UltimateMaster980d ago

We know, but until that adapter comes out, we can't play any of our 360 headsets.

Er what?

I want a bloody adaptor to use my existing TB at launch. I don't want to be forced to buy a new headset.

That would really piss me off.

Whitefire980d ago

You won't be able to buy either at launch according to this. But at least it isn't canceled.

Ripsta7th980d ago

Use the one ms gives you

Animal Mutha 76980d ago

Oh yes sure but nothing helps in cod or BF like a well adjusted TB. Nobody sneaks up on me :)

Deadpoolio980d ago

You grasp that it's just a CHAT headset right? It's not a surround headset

DialgaMarine980d ago

That's fine. I'll stick with my superior Pulse.
