Xbox One doesn't come with a headset because it includes Kinect, Microsoft explains
The Xbox One doesn't come with a headset because it includes Kinect, Microsoft has explained.
While the cheaper 4GB Xbox 360 models do not come with a headset, the high-end Xbox 360 models do, which led some to wonder whether Microsoft would pack one in with each £429 Xbox One.
Microsoft isn't, the company confirmed. And, it explained to Ars Technica, that's because each Xbox One console comes with the new Kinect, which itself includes a microphone.

The Xbox One headset, sold separately, is called the Xbox One Chat Headset. Microsoft is yet to announce a price for it.
If you don't fancy that, there are some third-party options, courtesy of Turtle Beach.
Microsoft has announced that you will be able to keep using your Xbox 360 headset with Xbox One after all - although you'll need an adaptor to do so.
The new information emerged last night via the official Xbox Support Twitter account

This is one complete failure of a console. I hate the sound of Kinect mics...

Thats the stupidest thing ever. The kinect is the most obnoxious thing every to hear people talk through (sorry demon). And the fact that you have to BUY a fucking adapter is freaking ridiculous.

Microsoft needs to step up their game before they get stomped on at release
