With the record-breaking launch of the PlayStation 4 still fresh in our minds, Sony is still taking care of a lot of things behind the scenes – making sure that our PS4 experience is as complete as possible. One of the kinks that remains to be ironed out is the use of the official PlayStation wireless headsets.
While the system does come with a mono wired headset, to the dismay of many individuals, bluetooth and USB wireless headsets are not supported by the PlayStation 4 at this time. However, PlayStation has promised that the support is coming, and now we have a better idea of when.
In a live video chat for retail employees with PlayStation’s Director of Platform Marketing and Innovation, John Regala, we were made aware that PlayStation branded headsets (including the Stereo and Pulse Elite wireless headsets) will be coming in 2014. More accurately, John Regala said that the update that will enable these features will be available, “just after the first of the year.”
So for those of you who are itching to use your official PS headsets with your new PS4, you will have to wait just a little while longer in order to do so.
Sound off in the comments below: How are you enjoying your PS4 so far? Are you waiting to use your wireless headset? and is early 2014 too long to wait? Let us know!
