Ars Technica is reporting this morning that the headset-Microphone combo that used to come standard with the Xbox 360 will not enjoy the same availability with the Xbox One console. Instead, the standard device will cost consumers extra. The Official Xbox Magazine confirmed the lack of a headset with Xbox Support, which tweeted that the system "does not come with a headset."
Microsoft issued the following statement about it to Ars Technica:
"Xbox One does not include a pack-in headset accessory. Each Xbox One includes the new Kinect sensor, with a highly sensitive multi-array microphones designed to enable voice inputs and chat as a system-level capability, both in-game and with Skype and other experiences. For gamers who prefer a headset, we have a variety of offerings that you can find on the Xbox Wire."
