Third-party headset company Turtle Beach confirmed that they would not be receiving adapters from Microsoft until early 2014 for packaging with their XO Four and XO Seven headsets.
“Turtle Beach expects to launch the XO FOUR and XO SEVEN headsets for the Xbox One console in the first quarter of 2014," the company said in a press release.
"The Xbox One Headset Adapter, being built by Microsoft and provided to Turtle Beach for inclusion with new gaming headsets, will not be available until early 2014.”
The news not only means current-gen headset owners will need to wait until at least a month after the Xbox One launches in November to get their hands on an adapter, but third-part headset manufacturers will also need to provide adapters to customers.
Just last week Sony announced that current Bluetooth headsets won’t be compatible with the PlayStation 4 at all while USB and Sony-brand headsets won’t work at launch either. USB and Sony-brand headsets will get an update at some point with the PS4 so that they work on the console, though.
Third-party and PS4-ready headsets will, however, work immediately at launch, and each console will come equipped with a one-piece ear bud headset.
