Wired headset not included with Xbox One


The Xbox One will not feature a wired headset with its packaging.

Ars Technica revealed that the headset, which Microsoft stated was “a must-have for fans of online gaming” during E3, will be a separate purchase. A price has yet to be set.

“Xbox One does not include a pack-in headset accessory,” a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement. “Each Xbox One includes the new Kinect sensor, with a highly sensitive multi-array microphones designed to enable voice inputs and chat as a system-level capability, both in-game and with Skype and other experiences.”

The PlayStation 4, on the other hand, will have a headset in the box, and other companies have been working on ways to convert current headsets to work on next-gen systems.
