Headsets can be complicated. Things get even more complicated during a console transition, so get ready.
According to a Game Informer report , any Bluetooth headset you're currently using for your PlayStation 3 will not work on the PlayStation 4 when the new system launches.
The bottom line is that eventually, some headsets will work while others won't. If you have a Sony-branded headset or a PULSE gaming headset, a future system update will allow those to be compatible with the PS4. Headsets that rely on bluetooth for chat won't work at all, though, unless you've got ones that rely on USB. Those, you'll eventually be able to use. As for any headset that relies on digital optical for game audio, you're good to go; you just won't be able to chat right off the bat. If you're wondering, Microsoft fans will face similar issues with the Xbox 360-Xbox One transition.
See? Told you it was complicated.
