Xbox One does a Sony and makes you get adapters for everything
Sony, as everyone knows, are buggers for having unique leads for everything so you can't use third party cables with their devices. And now, Microsoft are having a go at the same by not allowing third party headsets into their imminent Xbox One console.
So, the next-gen gizmo will have a redesigned controller which changes the connection for the headset. The headsets you have for your Xbox 360 won't work with the new console and Microsoft will be releasing an adapter if you want them to work.
Nice little earner, eh?
Worse still is that it looks like these adapters won't be available 'til next year, which means you won't be able to hurl abuse at people while playing Call Of Duty for the time being.
Basically, if you have the XO Four or XO Seven Xbox One gaming headsets, they'll need the Xbox One Headset Adapter and the delay is being caused by the fact that Microsoft haven't actually made them yet.
The Xbox One is set to launch on the 22nd of November and you'll inevitably have to pay for one of these adapter or buy a new headset which will be expensive, right now. This'll probably be the case for all old equipment you'll be wanting to use as console makers will be trying to bleed every penny they can get in a market that is struggling.
