It was revealed a few weeks ago that official launch bundles of the Xbox One will not come with a headset. Microsoft stated a reason for this.
Here’s the official statement from Microsoft:
“Xbox One does not include a pack-in headset accessory. 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. For gamers who prefer a headset, we have a variety of offerings that you can find on the Xbox Wire.”
As most of you know, each Xbox One comes with a Kinect which you can use to communicate with others. If you don’t like using the Kinect, an official wired headset is available to buy separately. You’ll have to buy the headset because old Xbox 360 hardware isn’t compatible with the Xbox One.
For the record, Sony will be including a headset with every PS4 bundle, but no camera.
