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.

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.

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

Use the one ms gives you
Animal Mutha 76  +   769d ago
Oh yes sure but nothing helps in cod or BF like a well adjusted TB. Nobody sneaks up on me :)

You grasp that it's just a CHAT headset right? It's not a surround headset
DialgaMarine  +   769d ago
That's fine. I'll stick with my superior Pulse.
