Microsoft Confirms Xbox One Adaptor for Xbox 360 Headsets

The Xbox One will be compatible with your current gaming headset, with the use of a newly announced adaptor.
Following the revelation that current headsets won’t work with the Xbox One as standard, and that a new headset won’t come bundled with the next-gen console, people started enquiring as to whether there was some way that Microsoft could find a fix.
It might seem like a non-issue, but for those of us that have dished out hundreds of pounds/dollars/whatever on a high-end headset, we were eager to hear the answer.
Microsoft’s initial response was to say that the company was looking into making an adaptor, news which has now been confirmed.
Speaking on Twitter, Microsoft’s lead planner for Xbox One Albert Penello, responded to an enquiry by saying, “We will have an adapter that allows current gaming headsets to work."
Penello also said that the adaptor won’t come bundled with the Xbox One, but will be sold separately.
