I believe both of these headsets are the wired stereo models. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Even the ultra premium "wireless" versions including the higher end TB & Polk models require a constant connection to the X1 controller. That equals zero mobility.

I think we are stuck with this terrible solution for now but I hope to be proven wrong.

I like the Turtle Beach one better because it doesn't look dirty like the other two. But I don't use headsets either. Fortunately I'm able to use my 7.1 system and I don't have a situation where I need to use a headset to stay quiet.

I just hope I'm able to play Titanfall next week. My carpal tunnel is acting up in both arms right now. I can't even get to sleep because it's hurting so bad. I need to find these things that I have to wear on my forearms to take the pressure off my arms while sleeping. So hopefully it will allow me to get a few more hours of sleep. It hasn't been this bad since I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel a few years ago.

Unless something has changed, they already stated that there isn't going to be pre-purchase/pre-downloads for Titanfall on the XBOne. Although I have no idea why. You would think it would simple thing for them to do. And you would think they would want to spread out the number of people downloading it. Instead of having a huge onslaught of people trying to download it at midnight, slowing everything down for everyone.

Thats what i was worried about, I have decent DL speeds, but I think the servers may be overwhelmed with the traffic trying to DL TF on release, so i bought the Disc, hope it goes fast for you guys who are DL'n tho...

Hey, I have my webcams blocked with electrical tape (and the Kinect still in the box), but they're gonna learn far more from you going online with your PC/phone or using a credit card than they'll ever get by you playing an Xbox game.

Some people with the game have already taken direct feed screens and done the pixel counting. Beta resolution looks to be final resolution.

Also, maybe spoilers, but a bit of Skyrim seems to have made it into Titanfall based on later posts...

Everyone else laughing at the pc players saying how it looks blurry? I don't get why they're so butt-hurt that it's not 4k, it does still look great - as good as Ghosts and better than BF.

They're not butt hurt, they're being snobby.

On a technical level, the game is better than Ghosts, but far below Battlefield. PC fans are being snobbish over the low resolution the game is pushing on Xbox One, not just the below average graphics. (Which everyone gets to enjoy)

Titanfall was never advertised as a technical showpiece, just as a fun game. The technical aspects are a disappointment, but that doesn't stop the game from being a blast to play.
