Allegedly anyway, full confirmation pending of course.

But that isn't true, there are heaps of headsets out there that still work. Any standard 3.5mm device will work just plugging into the back of the dualshock, also any that works off optical or HDMI audio.

There is, was just implying that there isn't a PS4 approved headset beyond the ear buds.

I'm kind of wondering if they ran into some issues with chat itself. We've heard less than nothing about if or how their doing parties on the PS4, at least from what I've been able to find. Every few weeks I've searched out info and have not been able to find any mention at all. We've seen the dash and all the bells and whistles for spectator modes but not one thing about chat. If there is, can someone point it out? IMO that has been one area they have lacked an announcement in.

Edit: Found this on the Tube, probably should have went there first....

I wonder if the chat cable that comes with headsets for use on 360 will work in the DS4.

That would be priceless.
post #6335 of 15140
So the online voice chat is being routed through the controller, just like on the 360 now. If you want to voice chat then you need something that uses a 3.5mm jack or you're out of luck.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this seems to be the problem right now.

If there's a software fix coming then it's not a big deal. If they decide to go proprietary for wireless chat it will be annoying to say the least. Official word would be appreciated here.

Actually that would be awesome, it would mean my old TB's would work again and I could go back to rechargable and replaceable batteries. The Pulse Elite is decent but like a vice after a bit and the battery life sucks.

You would need an adapter, I believe the Xbox uses a 2.5mm and it seems as the DS4 is a 3.5mm.

HAHA, hey I am in the same boat. I would not want to use an adapter. I might see if I can find a 2.5mm to 3.5mm cable. Save the whole adapter stuff.
post #6340 of 15140
Guys, that 3.5mm jack on the DS4 open up a world of standard mic options. It is what BOTH previous consoles should have used.
This isn't to dissuade your grief about it's current to-be-patched Bluetooth situation

Here are 3 pictures that show how I can use any 4-pole chat cable on regular headphones and presumably even use my wired $36 Turtle Beach X12 with a simple adaptor. (I still stand the X12 is the best bang for the buck, so good Turtle Beach shot themself in the foot with it)

Every 15 minutes the system picks a winner. 4000+ PS4 will be given away.
post #6349 of 15140
I have a feeling Taco Bell might be covering at least some or even most of the free PS4s and it's not all out of Sony's pockets. I mean it looks more like Taco Bell is benefiting more than the PS4 is when it comes to advertising this event. Their are so many other places that Sony could have done this with and they pick Taco Bell which is why I think Taco Bell could have offered to fund this event.

4000 + PS4 given away?? That's crazy. They better have a lot of stock left over to sell with the effect this is going to have

Not bad enough to eat Taco Bell!

4000 out of 2 million really isn't that big of a deal.

I think that might be better odds than getting in on the steambox beta.

Keep trying man! Early mornings seem best.

Is it really a PS4 every 15 minutes or is it really just a random chance and they have a certain amount to giveaway? I suspect the latter.

No idea for sure, but it's worth a shot if you're willing to enter a code each day. Plus, you don't even need to get the food. I just asked for the boxes and bought a couple tacos while I was there.
