News: Microsoft has confirmed that it will have an adapter to allow you to use your Xbox 360 headset on Xbox One.

Microsoft is currently working on an adapter for existing wired headsets to connect to Xbox One. This tidbit of information was revealed when @XboxSupport replied to a question that was posted on Twitter. Previously there were rumors floating around the internet that you wouldn’t be able to use any of our current-gen headsets. If you owned a nice pair of headphones (I own Astro A40s myself) then this was obviously unwelcome news.

Fortunately though it appears that rumor was just that, a rumor. In the past five weeks or so, there has been a lot of misinformation going around the Internet regarding Xbox One and it is nice that we at least have an answer from Microsoft for one of Xbox One's potential issues.

It should be noted that no release date or pricing was given for this adapter. For those who haven’t kept up with this particular rumor, the new Xbox One controller will be coming with a new, proprietary data port that is different from what gamers use with the Xbox 360. According to Microsoft, this will result in the audio quality being better than it was with the Xbox 360 headsets since it supports stereo audio. That can only be a good thing, right?

Well, there were legitimate concerns that our expensive Turtle Beach or Astro headsets wouldn’t work. Fortunately, that rumor has been laid to rest by @XboxSupport.

What do you think of this development? Do you plan on purchasing a new headset to go along with your Xbox One or will you simply purchase the adapter so you can use the headset you have today? Tell us what you think below.
