Microsoft Releasing Adapter to Allow Use of Xbox 360 Headsets on Xbox One

Posted on July 31, 2013 AT 11:35am

Microsoft will release an adapter that allows current-gen and third-party headsets to function on the Xbox One, the console’s lead planner Alberto Penello announced on Twitter.

According to Penello’s tweets, the adapter won’t be packaged with the Xbox One, but rather sold separately as an accessory. No mention of price or whether the adapter would hit store shelves alongside the console itself.

As for the need to have a headset adapter to use Xbox 360 headsets on the Xbox One, the redesigned controller features a different input/output port (seen above) than the Xbox 360 controller’s.

The Xbox One launches this November in North America, priced at $499.
