    Rumor: Microsoft does another 180....

    Now includes headsets with Xbone....

    Microsoft has reversed yet another Xbox One decision and has decided to include a headset with the console, according to an updated product listing.
    A revised product specification for the console sent to retailers by Gem, the official U.K. distributor for Microsoft Studios and Xbox products, now lists a headset as part of the bundle.

    I'd hardly call this another 180, but whatever.

    If it's true, good news for those who wanted one. Now they won't need to shell out another few dozen dollars to get it.

    I would. After saying, no.. Kinect is good enough. no, your 360 ones won't work, you'll have to buy a new one, no..it won't come with the system they go and do this.

    Seriously Microsoft is the Mitt Romney of systems this year.

    As a sidenote - MS has apparently changed the audio port to improve data throughput. However they're also supposedly creating an adaptor so old headphones will work with the XB1.

    I think that's official, so I wouldn't say "they're also supposedly". There's also the chance a third-party might take care of that, the same way it happened with the USB-to-memory card ports for the PS3.

    I read something on Kotaku about the XB1 adaptor, but I'd hardly call that official, hence the wishy-washy language.

    The same applies to PS3-compatible headsets and the PS4...they're "supposed" to work, but we don't have confirmation.

    In any case, MS and Sony can keep their $5 mono earpiece junk, I'm far more interested in my $350 Astros working on the next-gen.

    Yeah, screw that shitty earpiece thing. I'd rather use my $20 blutooth headphones as I do with my PS3 .

    Nah man, this is some David Lynch surrealist shit.

    Microsoft is gonna try for round two at Gamescom (Sony territory) where they'll be hosting a conference and trying to clarrify their image. They may just succeed, too, without out Mattrick telling every gamer, serviceman or woman to go fuck themself.

    And now they say Xbox1 was created with ads in mind: Xbox One created 'with advertising in mind' - GameSpot.com

    Microsoft just want money, they do not care for the gamers. Any gamer I know who owns a 360, does not care one fuckin' bit for the Kinect, it's a gimmick for simpletons and seldom does it work. Even their 'new improved' one seemed to be lacking a lot at E3 lmao, everyone looked like complete damn tools who even dared go near it.

    I always viewed the lack of headsets a feature - less chance of listening to kids and underdeveloped adults running their mouths.

    I hope either system comes with a master setting to automatically mute all online multiplayer voice chat unless specifically enabled , or filtered to friends only. Manually having to do it each match/lobby is rather annoying.

    You have to give it to Microsoft, stupid enough to announce all that nonsense in the first place but not so stupid that they fully ignore people's disdain for it. Only gets better for gamers with every retraction.

    Money does indeed, talk.
