Game Informer shared some new info on the subject of headsets and the PlayStation 4.
Here’s the breakdown:
- The PlayStation Pulse Wireless Elite headset will work with the PS4 after a post-launch system update
- Other USB headsets will also work with the PS4 after a post-launch system update
- Bluetooth PlayStation 3 headsets will not work
The lack of Bluetooth headset compatibility is perplexing since the PlayStation 4 includes a bluetooth antenna. Is this a ploy to generate additional PlayStation headset sales? That doesn’t make much sense when you consider they’re going to allow the Pulse Elite headsets with a system update.
I hope Sony comes out and clarifies things on that front. I really would like to know why they’re excluding PS3 compatible Bluetooth headsets.
