The Xbox One's newly announced headset adapter will not work with the Tritton Warhead, Tritton Primer, Xbox 360 Wireless and Xbox 360 Wireless Bluetooth headsets, according to the Xbox support page.
Good to know. Thank you.
And they couldn't have just made the audio jack 3.5mm on the controller in the first place because.....well, because...your money. It's just annoying how MS designs things with a flaw and then sell you the solution. It's frustrating that they haven't changed this practice in over 10 years. This reminds of that shit they did with the 360's HDMI adapter. They intentionally made the plastic enclosing fat so you can't use HDMI when you're using the packed in AV cable, forcing you to spend extra on yet another adapter. I'm just glad that right now, I don't feel the need to have an Xbox One, hopefully never, Same for the DVD playback kit for the original Xbox. STOOOOOOPID
$25 for a wire is f'n ridiculous. I laughed.
How do you figure they intentionally designed the av cable to be fat so you have to buy the hdmi av adapter when the 360 originally wasn't even designed with an hdmi port? And if I remember correctly MS included the adapter with the hdmi cable anyway.
"It's just annoying how MS designs things with a flaw and then sell you the solution." Common practice for them. Look at windows 8. If you want a start bar ms will sell you one with the upgrade to windows 8.1.
with things like that, yet people can argue it being a "better" controller. pfft...
Of course this would happen, in an era where accessories is what helps get back the losses in console manufacturing I'm not surprised their not compatible.
Yep just another way to buy the newest headset i suppose!
All the console makers need to bring in extra revenue from somewhere.
I'm thinking of ordering the Titanfall Exclusive headset, looks awesome. I will say, the XB1 is less than three months old and it's ALREADY been worth every penny. I have that thing on all day everyday and there's always something to do. No wonder it's selling so many games per console. It's been a very successful launch so far, and the future looks even brighter. In fact for both consoles, this has been a really good launch so far...bugs here and there, but no real major issues. I'm really happy I grabbed an XB1, it was a good choice. ....no I don't work for MS :) I'm just happy with my purchase is all. @neocores ...Nope, I just noticed that this site had gotten TOO caught up in negativity and trying to tell other people they were stupid for having fun differently (as you can see by the fact that I got a disagree already from simply saying I enjoy the XB1)...and I admit I got caught up in the drama at times..so I'm trying to change that, by spreading good news and junk (even though I admit since it's so rare it sounds like a stupid infomercial).
Wow bro calm down do you go around copying and pasting this every where you go lol?
I'd rather hear his personal experience written out well rather than that one kid posting "Ps4 is the future and the future is Ps4" every time he says something...
Can anyone confirm whether Astro 40s will be compatible with these adapters? I'm assuming yes.
my gosh!! im a big XBOX fan but damn can i fully take advantage of my Astro A50s pls!!! Microsoft made some really dumb decision on this console... goodness..
Well not yet since you can use the adapter but the XBOXONE is not able to output digital sound.They have yet to put support for 5.1 and 7.1 digital and whatever on the machine.So just stereo for the moment!Sad!
I have been waiting to see what astro has in store for the XB1. Keep checking there web site as that MS has a release date for the adapter. As it stands now,the only headphones for the XB1 I have seen listed on gamestops web site have been from Turtle beach and Polk Audio. With both having a March release date.
It just seems like Xbox One is all about spending money down to the last penny. Every single thing you do on Xbox One comes at a price. You have to pay a premium for the console, pay to use even the most basic features on Xbox Live, pay to use apps you already pay for, pay for batteries for your controller, Pay for cable in order to watch TV on your TV, now you have to pay for headsets too even though you already some. All this and the console is weaker than it's nearest competitor. I must be missing something because it makes no sense. Just today I had a friend say he was thinking of getting an Xbox One because he liked how you can say Xbox On and it turns on. Little do he know he's going to have to cough up his entire pay check just to say Xbox On lol
That was the stupidest rant I have read allday.
I don't know what you considering to be stupid , it's the truth.
Watching cable is an option...
Don't forget that 400$ wheel you bought for the 360 that won't work with xbo
all i can see is $$$$$ going out of the wallet my goodness
Man for $79.99 that is a really crappy looking headset. From the looks of it the build quality looks like a low end turtle beach headset.
