Microsoft will offer an adapter to make the Xbox One compatible with older headsets

madcatz

The Xbox One will support last-gen headsets by way of a first-party adapter designed by Microsoft. This information was confirmed via Twitter by the company’s lead planner for Xbox One, Alberto Penello.

“Yes, wrote Penello, responding to a query. “We will have an adapter that allows current gaming headsets to work.”

Penello also confirmed that the adapter will not be bundled with Xbox One retail packages and that it will instead be sold as a separate accessory. The Xbox lead didn’t discuss the audio add-on’s price point, but if the adapter brings your $200+ headset to next-gen, we’re pretty sure that many audiophiles will overlook a slight premium.

There was no word if the adapter will be available at launch, so we’ll reach out to Microsoft for a few more details, including the accessory’s asking price. As for those of you looking to keep voice chatting private but casual, the Xbox One’s official headset will be available for $25 when the system launches this November.

    at what price tho? better be cheaper then $25/£20

    • misterhearn

      One would hope that it’s less than the price of Microsoft’s official headset. Maybe $10 or $15.

      • Morris ヅ

        that would be good it they do it that cheap

        • Shane

          Might as well buy a universal third party headset that works with everything mate. It’s worth the cost and much more durable!

  • TomDobo

    Well the bluetooth chip on my tangos cost £30/$50 so i can expect it to cost a bit more

  • RECKLESSgoat

    Perfect xD

    • bizzy gie

      Not really. Perfect would be not paying for what you’ve already paid for.

      • Arthur Hughes

        what did you already pay for on the xbox one?

        • bizzy gie

          I’m talking about headphones.

          • Arthur Hughes

            What headphoes did you pay for on the xbox one?

          • bizzy gie

            Why should I buy XB1 headphones? I want to use the ones I have already bought now without paying money again to use it.

          • Arthur Hughes

            you didnt buy xbox one headset.

          • bizzy gie

            I hope no one does unless they don’t already have one or have a crappy set.

          • Arthur Hughes

            lol its funny how you try to justify things

          • rsco6969

            its funny how you try to make him sound stupid when it’s clear you are indeed the one. he never said he bought X1 gear

          • Arthur Hughes

            wow your a derpy kid, You don’t think i know that. Kind of the point when he said he already paid for something that isnt out.

      • RECKLESSgoat

        You are right, we shouldnt have to pay to use what we bought, but we didnt buy it for the xbox one we bought it for the 360 and MS is giving us a chance to use our expensive headsets on the xbox one which is great.

        • bizzy gie

          Sony is giving us a chance to use our expensive headphones and it’s FREE.

  • krayzielilsmoki

    Reading the original article it makes sense why they changed the port. The current controller only has an audio plug which limits the possibilities of future accessories. With the controller on the Xbox 1 they will be able to do much more with the new port. So no, Microsoft was not a money hungry asshole trying to make you buy a new headset, instead they were expanding the possibilities of future accessories.

    • bizzy gie

      Then why do they make you buy an adapter?

      MS could have done what Sony and Nintendo did.

      Just add two headset ports.

      Don’t make us buy extra stuff to use what we’ve already paid for.

      MS is money hungry.

      • Arthur Hughes

        because its a High speed port they want faster communication.

        Microsoft is thankfully not like sony

        Refer to Highspeed port

        You didnt pay for anything on the xbox one

        Its a better battery system. when the battery wears down on the controller, which will happen faster with the useless light on it. You have to buy a new controller. Battery dies on xbox controller replace battery. Sony controller have to hook it up to a 6′ cord (hopefully its longer this time on the ps4 but i doubt it) Dont know about you but i dont live in a shack my tv from my chairs are around 10′

        Sony in box headphone is The worst possible quality imaginable. Their is no headset that is worse for gaming and chatting the the in line mic.

        XBL and PS+ cost the same if you have 2 braincells to rub together. PS+ free games are only their while you have PS+ XBL free games are yours for all time. Currently Xbox live online is way better then PS+

        Every company is in it for the money. The fact that you think sony is not money hungry shows how stupid you really are.

        • bizzy gie

          Every company is out to make money, but MS is money hungry. They charge unnecessarily.

          You will not find any XB1 XBL cards on deal when the Xbox One first launches.

          PS+ is cheaper.

          XBL is only offering AC2 for free.

          PS+ offered Borderlands 2 for free on the cheaper, not required PS+ AGES ago. XBL had the game on sale for $10 and it was much, much later. Keep in mind that XBL is more expensive and 100% required.

          The port is higher speed, but why can’t they add the predecessing port right next to it like Sony with PS4 and Nintendo with Nintendo DS?

          You shouldn’t have to PAY for an adapter.

          A recharging system is much better than batteries.

          It’s easier to charge a controller than go buy batteries or try a hunt some out from around your house.

          The Pro Controller charging cable is very long and can charge as you play. It also has a very long 80 hour battery life.

          All for FREE.

          “Their (spelled incorrectly) is no headset that is worse for gaming and chatting the the in line mic.”

          Yeah, because some kid’s mom wants to hear profanity through her TV speakers.

          Kinect is absolutely HORRIBLE for online chat. My Kinect is next to the TV. You have to yell to speak and it’s still fuzzy and echoes to the moon and back.

          Yes Kinect 2.0 will have a more sensitive mic, but you still can’t have that intimate chat experience. You’re going to have to project even if a little.

          If you live with other people, forget Kinect even exists.

          Kinect users are also the butt of poor people jokes. No thank you. It’s the absolute worse for online chatting.

          Money hungry Microsoft. Moneysoft.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Their is so much dumb shit in just the few first parts of this i did not even try to read the rest. I’m Just glad little kids like you wont be on the xbox one with the rest of us

          • bizzy gie

            You didn’t read because you know I’m right and you were too lazy. This vague crap will not get you far.

            Either counter what you believe to be false or don’t reply at all.

            This cheap, little reply you tried to pass off means I’m right.

          • krayzielilsmoki

            Xbox live carries over,I can stock up on the sales now and use them later, so saying that xbox live is more expensive is not a valid argument. Xbox live is also more robust in regards to capability and multiplayer experience, the PlayStation network can only hope to be at this level one day. Yes PlayStation gives free games,I can’t argue with that,I wish xbox started giving games for free earlier. The battery argument is completely personal preference,I can see pros and cons of both so saying one way is better is completely opinion.With the Xbox controller you can purchase the rechargeable pack which gives you both options.the headset issue is probably the dumbest thing in the world. I currently don’t own a headset so I will purchase one when I get the Xbox 1, most people are in a similar boat (coming from a different system, never owned a headset for gaming, or never owned a gaming console). If you did spend a lot of money on a headset and you would like to use it then you can buy the adapter. Microsoft did not have to make an adapter but they did so you are in luck. Creating a new port next to the old one would not work with the design of the controller and would not be a good ROI in terms of r&d so they did not include it.
            You are a strange person that had contradicted yourself many times on this website. Your posts are insanely bias and guesses at best. I understand that you may not be old enough to understand the business aspect of the decisions Microsoft makes but I do hope that you are mature enough not to come on the webpage of a console that you will not buy just to complain about irrelevant differences between the Xbox and ps4.

          • bizzy gie

            You can’t compare online services of consoles you’ve never even touched.

            Just as XBL can sold for cheaper than it’s MSRP, so can PS+.

            I can find deals for both anywhere.

            A rechargeable system is much better The XB1’s recharging solution will cost you $25 when it should be free.

            Even still, I HATE trying to find batteries for my 360. It’s so stupid and annoying. I don’t have batteries lying aroung because I don’t need any (excluding the controller).

            I don’t want to pay for batteries. Recharging is much better and easier.

            Many 360 owners will transition to One. It COD lobbies, almost everyone has a headset.

            Microsoft should not have made the adapter.

            If Sony and Nintendo could give two headset ports for FREE, why not Microsoft?

            I’m no child and understand business casual-logically. Please refrain from the personal attacks. It invalidates your argument.

          • krayzielilsmoki

            Everything you just posted is an opinion.

          • bizzy gie

            Everything I post may or may not be fact, but ALL have some form of factual basing.

            I never post anything for pure self-satisfaction.

            I only post statements I know I can argue because there are facts to back it up.

            I’m usually right when it comes to whatever topic I choose to debate and in order for me to be right, what I state has to be true in some form.

          • rsco6969

            im in love with you bizzie XD

        • Chris Hamilton

          “You know nothing Jon Snow” the Sony HQ bluetooth mic was excellent quality you could whisper and still be heard yet background noise was never a problem.And as far as “faster communication” goes lol, communication speed is solely based on your ping, not on whether or not you use a proprietary “high speed port”
          Also xboxlive online is the same as psn, FYI game publishers provide the servers for both platforms.(yes xbox live had some better features like cross game chat and follow a friend,but IMO that’s hardly worth $50 a year. Think about it, after just 5 years that’s $250 just for cross game cheating/oops I mean chat.)
          Sony jumped on board the month subscription fee because they saw sheeple like you not only accepted the fee, but rejoiced about how much better it was.I get it, its human nature to think that things that cost more are better.

          • HyperionLight

            Yeah because detracting resources from other divisions just to keep the Gaikai servers going is such a good thing for them right now… right?

            Especially when they have so much money they seriously don’t know what to do with all of it. /s

          • bizzy gie

            Oh. So you work for Sony? You already know know Gaikai will work?

            Please give the list of the PS3 games that will be available on the service providing at least some form of backwards compatibility.

            Can you rate on a scale of 1-10 how awesome it is to be able play next gen games on the go which can’t be done on any other console?

            Glad to know we have an inside guy on this site who works for Gaikai.

          • HyperionLight

            Mate I didn’t say gaikai is bad actually its cool they offer the streaming, but to keep those servers running and upgrading them, they would need to start charging for the service, imho. The same applies for the MS cloud.

            Although I couldn’t tell you what the peek number of concurrent users on gaikai is I can tell you that their closest rival OnLive had a maximum number of 1600 people concurrently streaming games. If we take that into account isn’t it logical to presume that to keep millions of people connected (and happy) they would need to put considerable work and resources into those servers.

            Btw he called everyone owning an xbox live (and future users of a ps+) sheep. So why are you getting angry at me?

          • bizzy gie

            I didn’t see the “sheep” insult.

            And I hope Gaikai is used for more than just game streaming.

            I don’t think it’ll take very many rescources if any at all.

            I also believe Sony has more money than people are willing to give credit for.

          • Chris Hamilton

            FYI I didn’t call all users sheep, only people who believe that they are getting more just because they pay for it.

          • HyperionLight

            Let’s leave it at that.

          • Chris Hamilton

            huh? Your statement has nothing to do with what I said, so I’ll assume you were talking to someone else.
            P.S. Don’t believe all the hype about Sony being broke ,they have $10 billion cash in the bank. That’s enough that they can lose $100 million for 100 years and still not have to sell off any assets.

          • HyperionLight

            Didn’t you say Sony started charging for the ps+ just because it was lucrative or in your own words “Sony jumped on board the month subscription fee because they saw sheeple like you not only accepted the fee” and not for the purpose of keeping and upgrading those gaikai servers?

            If they want to have millions of people streaming games, videos, music etc. from those servers wouldn’t it be logical
            for them to start charging for it or do you think they should give the service free and go bankrupt?

            Mate they had to sell their Tokyo HQ. I’m not a Sony employee, but to me that’s not a sign they’re overly optimistic or well of.

            Yeah they have $10+ billion, but they have more than just a gaming division.

            http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/28/business/global/sonys-bread-and-butter-its-not-electronics.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

          • Chris Hamilton

            as you said Sony is a huge corperation, so it just makes good business sense for them to sell off divisions that are losing money. It doesn’t mean they are broke.
            yes I said Sony followed suit due to peoples perception that something that cost more is better than something that’s free, I never mentioned gaikai as when the ps4 launches it won’t even be available ,so I don’t think the monthly sub fees have much to do with gaikai (although Sony would love it if you think that you are actually getting more by paying money, the truth is we don’t even know if Sony’s gaikai service will have its own monthly sub, like $29.99 for full access to the ps3 library or just recharge us for the ps3 games all together ,either way the service will pay for itself without the need for psn+ fees)

          • HyperionLight

            Indeed Sony is a giant company. And as you’ve (probably)
            read from the article the biggest moneymaker is the financial division.

            Instead the electronics division

            Sony’s electronics division has lost a cumulative $8.5 billion.

            So to lower the loss of the entertainment division (and to stop funding it by redirecting money from everywhere else) they had to opt for a payment of one of their services. Of course this is all conjecture, but seeing the numbers I think
            is a (more or less) believable one.

            And I don’t think that you get more I think they want to keep those loses minimal.

            And you’re right gaikai could indeed be a separate service with its own monthly fee, but I wonder how will ps+ owners react to that.

            Btw I don’t have any particular reason or wish to get myself a ps+ account.

          • Chris Hamilton

            I’m not saying Sony is in a great position financially but they are not as broke as some people would like you to believe.

            FYI the playstation division is not part of Sony’s electronic division, the PS is part of Sony’s computer division

          • HyperionLight

            Sony isn’t going bankrupt any time soon, but none the less they can’t keep funding a division that doesn’t make any money by itself.

            FYI the playstation division is not part of Sony’s electronic division, the PS is part of Sony’s computer division

            Indeed… although, the game division isn’t in a much better position.

          • Chris Hamilton

            the Playstation division has been making money,even for the past six years where Sony as a company reported a loss the playstation division was making money.

          • HyperionLight
          • Chris Hamilton

            first link of course Sony lost money the first year they released the ps3, they were selling it $200 below cost
            second link is very misleading ,it shows a loss of $2.8b ,but that is for a division that includes TV’s,cameras, and computers. The playstation brand was still making money (just not as much as it usually does, and not enough to keep the consumer products division as a whole from losing money. This was due to ps3 price drop and selling the vita at a loss)
            if you’re going to post links about the playstation brand losing money find some that only show the numbers for the PS brand as we already know how bad sony’s electronics are doing.

          • Arthur Hughes

            when you replied i knew you were as worthless as bizzie gie. Hence why i did not point out the serious amount of retardation you have posted in your post.

            First no mention of the Bluetooth headset in my post.

            2nd Xbox live is for all multiplayer. Xbox LIve has been hands down leaps and bounds beter then sony’s only. Easily worth the money if you play online.

            now get back to class

          • Chris Hamilton

            maybe you should go back to class if you think xbox live actually runs the servers that multiplayer games run on, Every game publisher provides the dedicated servers that their games run on (some publishers like activision actually go the P2P route passing the bandwidth usage onto you).

            maybe you should just stop now before you embarrass yourself any more

          • Arthur Hughes

            All matchmaking is done through Xbox live servers. Good try tho.

          • Chris Hamilton

            Nope sorry wrong again, match making is done by the actual game you are playing using the games servers.Hell some games don’t even have match making. The games use your live/psn ids to authenticate you though, but that has no affect on actual gameplay.

          • Arthur Hughes

            http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status
            Its ok not to know anything about xbox live. you don’t have to been like bizzie and make shit up to try and prove a point.

          • Chris Hamilton

            ok first xbox live’s matchmaking feature is called trueskill and its only available for a small percentage of games.
            second the games themselves still do the matchmaking, they just use your trueskill score to find better matches.
            and third, like I said before, even if live did all the matchmaking it still wouldn’t affect actual gameplay because the games run on the publishers servers not on Live/psn

        • Lev M

          so damn true, if sony wasn’t money hungry then why was there consoles ALWAYS MORE expensive than the rivals, ps3=$600 & the system for the 1st 3yrs was absolute trash

          • Arthur Hughes

            Thats because their sole purpose on the PS3 was to win the HD-DVD Blu-Ray battle. Its why they still lost money on a console they sold at $600 just to make sure they can get royalties on Blu-ray technology.

      • TomDobo

        Your paying for a better online experience with xbl. Plus you get two free games a month with it which is not a bad start like. It can only get better plus xbl gets dlc for quite a few games before playstation and 300,000 servers now thats something to look forward to. As i say ps4 will have a great online experience i just think xbox will have the upper hand again this time. But as i say its an opinion that i like xbox better dont hate.

        • bizzy gie

          Those two games will old, outdated, and played by everyone.

          On XB1, you’re first getting AC2 and Halo 3. Games everybody already owns especially Halo 3.

          Sony has not disclosed much on their online service so a comparison can not be made whatsoever.

          PlayStation is getting exclusive content that’ll never come to other platforms which is better than delayed content.

          • TomDobo

            Don’t forget xbox has only been giving games away for a month or so now. So as the months go by maybe the games will get better you never know yes ac2 and halo 3 is old but you cant complain for free xbox gets exclusive content on some games to like Fifa 14 (not a fan) and apparently Battlefield 4 not sure if that is just a rumour or not. But you can fault the xbox one the only difference to these consoles is exclusives which to me halo is the winner. And to you maybe Killzone ?? I don’t know what you play but go with what you want to play not cause of power. They will both be identical. And yes i will get a ps4 after it comes out lol.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Fable 3, an Arcade tower defense cant remember the name of. AC2, right now crackdown is a free download and in 2 weeks we will be getting Dead Rising 2 and dead rising case zero.

            These games are also not dependent on continuing to have xbl once download they are their forever with no restrictions.

          • rsco6969

            omg those games are awesom… wait no there not yeah ill stick to the modern games on + and all there discounts and early access

          • Arthur Hughes

            games your renting vs own. and Fable 3,AC2, DR2 are all amazing games

          • rsco6969

            games im renting until i leave and im never leaving so i keep them 4eva

          • Shane

            I don’t understand why you come on an Xbox One site just to attempt to ridicule and compare it’s negatives to the positives of Ps4. Even if it’s something they announce that’s really good, you will complain about it., every single post on this “xboxone”daily site I see a comment from you. It’s evident that you hate the xbox one in it’s entirety and love Ps4. Why not go hang out at a Ps4 site instead of coming here just to cause arguments? If you can’t comprehend that your an annoyance, or for some reason just enjoys being annoying than you’re going to have a bad time in life. Take your snobby psuedo-Proffessional opinions elsewhere mate. Because I’m sure everyone is tired of seeing your profile picture and name show up on every feed.

          • bizzy gie

            I show up in nobody’s feed unless I reply to them.

            Most (not all) of the time, they replied to me first.

            I don’t hate XB1. I hate that there are things like this where MS will try and screw consumers (like with DRM) and people make excuses for them or try and dismiss them.

            I wouldn’t complain about something good. If there is a major downside to said benefit however, I will bring it up.

            I will remain on this site as I love all gaming news and like to keep updated.

            I appreciate your concern, but it is not needed.

      • Lev M

        PS+ is required to play online on ps4 & xbox live DUMPS all over psn in every way possible + u could use the kinect to talk to people cause it has a built in Mic, the only thing you’re right about is the fact that it still does play & charge kits in 2013 which is stupid & a bad move

        • bizzy gie

          Kinect is not ideal for chat. There’s no intimacy.

          If you or your friends like trash-talking and live with family, forget it.

          There’s crazy echo. Plus Kinect users are the butt of poor people jokes.

          I’d rather have an included mono headset.

          You don’t know how PS+ will play out on PS4.

          Plus PS+ on PS3 offers many new free games all the time which XBL doesn’t even come close to.

          • Lev M

            sony said it themselves that the ps4 will require ps+ to play online & no one really cares much for the BS boxed in headset cause they’ve stopped boxing them in with the 360 & intimacy, LOL it’s a video game console not your girlfriend most of us will be playing it in the room anyway

          • bizzy gie

            Gaming intimacy. -_-
            People want privacy.
            I live with family members and I’d be banned from playing Black Ops 2 in their presence if they heard what people said in that. I also don’t want them to hear me.

            You have to yell for Kinect 1 to hear you.

            I know Kinect 2 will be more sensitive, but if my Kinect is by my TV, I’m going to have to project at least to some degree which means keeping my trash talk G-rated which sucks.

            PS+ will cost now which I knew, but that should mean a better overall online service.

            Everybody hates MS for not including a headset.

            Even if just some cheap ones. Especially since they changed the port.

  • Arthur Hughes

    My curiosity to this would be if it keeps it same High Speed Capability with the adapter, or If it will become as slow as it is this generation.

  • Ducked

    I’ve been through 3 headsets…

    • Arthur Hughes

      i went throught at least 5 of the xbox 360 ones, before i said screw it and got my turtle beaches. Had them for 3 years now. Pretty sure they have paid for themselves now.

      • Ducked

        Yeah, I bought the ones that are $20-$50, and they don’t last for me. lol

        • Arthur Hughes

          I bought the wireless surround sound for a $100 and something.

          • Ducked

            Yeah, I need to buy me a nice one. The cheap ones don’t last for me.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Its funny the amount of people will call you a tryhard in games like COD for having a Nice headset. But seriously its probably cost me about the same as far as how many headsets ive gone through.

            Plus you can basically hear a fly fart across the map.

          • Ducked

            Yeah, I wish I had bought a $100 headset, instead of spending over a $100 are cheap ones that just break.

            Yeah, I’m sure that comes in handy, also be good for a lrage map like Battlefield 4

          • Arthur Hughes

            Ive been thinking about selling the one i have, and getting one that uses the high speed port without an adapter from turtle beach, when the xbox one comes out.

          • Ducked

            That’s a smart move, my money will be all gone by the time I get my Xbox One haha

          • RECKLESSgoat

            haha, lol fly fart xD

      • HyperionLight

        So you’re saying turtle beaches headsets are good, hmm I have to get me one of those.

        Any particular model you would recommend?

        • Arthur Hughes

          Im using the x41 Have had no issues with it at all, However it will go through batteries pretty quickly. Recommend some rechargeable batteries. Or hit up sam’s club and buy some AAAs in bulk

          • HyperionLight

            Thanks mate.

  • TomDobo

    This is not relevant to this tpoic but its intresting. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-why-xbox-one-is-cool-and-quiet

    • bizzy gie

      Why not just add more vents?

      This does not justify the stupidly large size.

      • Arthur Hughes

        I believe it specifically does.

        • bizzy gie

          My Wii U has never overheated and I use it all the time.

          I believe it does not.

          • Arthur Hughes

            try reading the article before posting.

          • bizzy gie

            They wanted to prevent a second RROD.

            They’re playing it safe.

            Don’t want to take any chances.

            No risks.

            That’s their justification.

            It’s a joke.

          • Arthur Hughes

            try reading it one more time, Lets see if your reading comprehension makes it past the preschool level.

          • bizzy gie

            So it can be always on for 10 years straight? Pfffft. XD. Goodnight bro. You’ve made the rest of my night.

            Thank you. :D

          • Arthur Hughes

            10 year always silent, always on, always cool life cycle. all for a few cm of space. sounds good to everybody but ps4 fanboys.

          • bizzy gie

            I’m a consumer. It’s not my fault there have been 99 things wrong with XB1(some fixed some not).

            If PS4 was even half as much of a screw up, my tables would be turned.

            However, you yourself are an Xbox fanboy so you can’t really use that insult.

            That console is massive. It has to be the second largest major console ever made only behind NES.

            PS4 is much smaller (and packs more power). You know what prevents it from overheating?

            VENTS! Tons of them. On the back.

            Let’s see how cool things are with XB1 when you get that electric bill.

            No one will ever run a console for ten years straight without turning it off.

          • Arthur Hughes

            lol the jokes you make are hilarious.

          • krayzielilsmoki

            I say you look through the other articles on this website and create a collection of bizzy gie comments, that way when he says anything remotely stupid (Like everything I say is fact) you can just let him read the bullshit he has posted in the past.

          • bizzy gie

            I never stated “everything I say is fact”. I make sure to type that that everything I state has FACTUAL BASING.

            You have to pay attention if you expect him or yourself to do such a thing.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Yeah its funny as hell. He now goes on about factual basing like anybody is going to believe anything he says. considering 90% of what he posts is false or he has no proof.

          • bizzy gie

            These weak replies are worthless. If you don’t counter on what you disagree with, then comments like these hold no weight.

            They’re childish. A waste of time.

            You do understand how debates work right?

          • Arthur Hughes

            you do know you have to post facts in order for it to be debated.

          • bizzy gie

            Or I can make claims that can be argued with facts.

            Like ShadowFall for example.

            ShadowFall will sell well.

            That’s not a fact. It’s a prediction.

            HOWEVER, I can back it up with facts.

            ShadowFall will be the main, hardcore exclusive for PS4. There are no other exclusives that are must-haves.

            DriveClub is free (a limited version) and Knack doesn’t appeal to very many people

            The graphics, gameplay, and story have been changed and upgraded meaning that if you hated Killzone before, you might like it now.

            PS4 is pre-ordering very well. In fact, much better than its main competitor meaning more overall software sales.

            Later an article stated that ShadowFall was selling better than the XB1’s top exclusives which then confirmed my prediction as fact.

          • Arthur Hughes

            Estimates are never facts. Shadowfall will be lucky to pass any of the other killzones.

          • bizzy gie

            Still selling more than top XB1 exclusives so however bad you think Killzone is selling, XB1 exclusives are selling worse.

          • Arthur Hughes

            How many of each game has sold? O wait you don’t know. Because none of them have been sold.

          • bizzy gie

            Pre-orders bro. Pre-orders.

          • Arthur Hughes

            How many preorders have been sold?

          • bizzy gie

            Your comment makes no sense.

          • Arthur Hughes

            of course it doesn’t to you.

          • bizzy gie

            A pre-order is a sell (if not canceled).

            “How many sales have been sold?”

            See what I mean?

          • Arthur Hughes

            how many derps can a dip-pity derp derp,

          • TomDobo

            And he’s a fanboy ? You sir are a hypocrite.

          • bizzy gie

            How so?

            All my arguments have factual basing in some capacity.

            When he sees someone post something negative about XB1 even if it’s true, they’re trolling or stupid.

          • TomDobo

            Because everything your saying is against Microsoft and your so much in love with the ps4 which makes a fan boy i admit i prefer the xbox but i like them both and i will be getting them both. I think its stupid having battery’s this day and age i also think they should have a predecessor post for current headsets but they way things work is they move on its old news new things need new technology and thats what Microsoft have done except for the battery part

          • bizzy gie

            I’m a consumer. Right now, PS4 is the viable console.

            I’d like to focus on XB1 positives, but everyone keeps trying to debate with me.

            Even when I post positive stuff here, I get downvoted.

            If I ever wrap up all these arguments, I’ll be sure to stick positives just because of the agitation that comes with fighting so many people at once.

          • RECKLESSgoat

            You see somebody post a positive thing about the xbox one and then you reply with a negative about it, you start most of the debate. I got nothing against you but I am just telling you what usually happens.

          • bizzy gie

            A lot of times people will see something as flawless when there are many flaws to consider.

            That’s where I come in.

          • RECKLESSgoat

            There is a huge fan inside the xbox one that prevents it from overheating, how does that not justify the size!?!?

          • bizzy gie

            The Wii U never over heats. It doesn’t need a huge fan.

            PS4 has many vents on the back. It won’t overheat.

            PS3 super slim doesn’t overheat.

            Most gaming tablets and laptops don’t overheat.

            Why does Microsoft have to make a massive box to achieve what every other gaming hardware company already does in sleeker, smaller form?

            The point in technology is for everthing to increase in power and decrease in size.

          • RECKLESSgoat

            You know what? lets say Microsoft wanted to take it to the next level…they just wanted to make sure that gamers wont be forced to send that xbox back 1 week after release due to overheating problems that caused a hardware failure.

          • bizzy gie

            Sure thing. :)

    • HyperionLight

      The x1 impresses me more and more.

      Good job MS.

      • TomDobo

        Its getting better with every annoucement i think they might get there fans back soon. Keep up the good work Microsoft. Xbox one ftw !!!

  • RECKLESSgoat

    Sounds great, but couldve been better if they included these adapters.

  • Chris Hamilton

    And it will only cost $59.99 lol jk price will probably be more like $29.99 ,but seriously why? They should have used bluetooth like sony in the first place.

    • Arthur Hughes

      They increased the speed of chat with a faster connection in the controller. With the limitations on the transfer rate of Bluetooth it may not of been practical.
