Gamers who are considering purchasing the new next-generation Microsoft Xbox One games console might be pleased to learn that Microsoft has today announced that they will be making an adapter for the older Xbox 360 headsets to be used with the new Xbox One games console.
When Microsoft officially launched their new Xbox One console easier this year they explained in the presentation they had altered the audio input port to a proprietary jack, making all the headsets incompatible with the new next-generation console.
Microsoft’s Albert Penello explained on Twitter earlier today : “We will have an adapter that allows current gaming headsets to work,”.
The new Microsoft Xbox One headset adapter that will allow gamers to use their older Xbox 360 headsets will be available as a separate purchase. However there will also be available on a new Xbox One headset which is also being sold separately and is currently available to preorder directly from the Microsoft website.
Microsoft has also this week released details of both their new Microsoft Xbox One reputation system and player Smart Matching system which might be of interest to anyone considering purchasing the new next-generation Xbox One console.
