    Confirmed: PS4 will support PS3 headsets

    The upcoming PlayStation 4 console will support previous generation PlayStation 3 wireless headsets, a Sony official at San Diego Comic-Con told Polygon.
    PS4 consoles will still ship with their own mono headset in earbud form comparatively, late last month Microsoft confirmed no Xbox One headset will be included in the base system of the console as the system will instead emphasize Kinect-driven voice inputs. Unlike PS4, previous-generation headsets will not be compatible with Xbox One controllers due to a new headset adapter port.

    So this does mean it'll be compatible with blutooth headsets? If so, I'm happy and glad, because screw them earphones.

    what about wired ones? I've got a Triton headset that plugs in and isn't actually wireless - Maybe that's a silly question...?

    I'm sure they've confirmed already you won't be able to play them on your PS4.

    As long as my Astro headsets work (which they should) I'll be a happy man. Sony is really good about supporting peripherals from previous generations so I expected this.

    I'm also hoping this means my racing wheels will work too.

    This is fantastic since I bout the Pulse headset a while back and it's (generally) great. I have to send it in due to both sides cracking prematurely
