The PlayStation 4 will usher in new standards in terms of connectivity but, at least in terms of headsets, it seems that Sony has made some compromises. According to a company statement from GameInformer , the PS4 won’t support Bluetooth headsets made for the PS3 at all, with the exception of its own series of devices, like the Pulse ones, which will get a special update in the future. Wired headsets that connect via USB will require a special patch to even work, not just specifically for chat. Until that update will appear, however, PS4 owners can use the special mono headset that will be bundled with each console and can be connected straight through the DualShock 4 controller.

UK retailer expecting Xbox One to outsell PS4
+1 United Kingdom retailer John Lewis is expecting greater interest in the Xbox One than the PlayStation 4 this holiday season. Head technology buyer for the department store chain Jonathan Marsh told TrustedReviews (via GamesIndustry International ) that Microsoft has the advantage and its console will outsell the PS4. “We are expecting more interest in the Xbox One,” Marsh said. “We are stocking both the PS4 and the Xbox One, but if we were to back one, we are thinking that Xbox One will appeal a bit more to our customers in terms of the experience it creates.” “If we had to edge one I would favor the Xbox One,” he added. The Xbox One may have a higher price tag than the PS4 ($500 vs. $400), but Marsh said the Xbox One’s launch lineup and online platform will set it apart from the PS4. Marsh is not alone in his prediction that the Xbox One outperforming the PS4 this year. Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said in July that Microsoft’s console could outship the PS4 by a 3:1 ratio at launch. On the other side, a report from the International Data Corporation this month concluded that the PS4 would outsell the Xbox One due to a “variety of factors” but most directly its lower price point relative to the Xbox One. The PS4 launches on November 15 in North America, with the Xbox One following on November 22.
