The adapter used to make Xbox 360 gaming headsets compatible with Xbox One won't come bundled with the console, Microsoft's senior director of product management and planning Albert Penello has confirmed.

"Yes. We will have an adapter that allows current gaming headsets to work," tweeted Penello, before adding: "No [it won't be included with the console,] it's an accessory".

Yesterday, Penello took to Twitter to state that Microsoft is "looking into" the possibility of including a headset in the box with Xbox One. Analysis

How much would you pay to continue using your Xbox 360 headset on Xbox One?

They were RF If I remember correctly, and these new ones use a dedicated signal to the Kinect to work. I doubt they will work.

I actually got rid of my triton Halo 4 headset when it was announced that they would not be compatible, and then there is another U-Turn.

never mind, I have another set of Turtle Beaches that will work just fine. I would pay upto £10 to connect them to the Xbox One.

If they include a new one, it is proof that they are listening to their prospective customers. On day one of the 360 launch we got a media remote if my memory serves me correctly.

I think I'd prefer to just get a new headset... Apple did the same thing with the iPhone 5 and the adapter isn't great when using iPod docks. I think eventually I will just have to get a new dock
