Do you folks really get excited about being able to use a headset?  I don't get it.  Are you talking about just something that allows you to chat with people if playing a game online?


2. The many people who don't have sound systems for their TV, and would rather have high quality audo via a headset

So how does that work?  Would you need to plug the headset into the TV then?  Or is there a setting somewhere on the PS4 that changes game audio from going to through the TV to a headset plugged into the controller?


Settings>Sound And Screen>Audio Settings and change the setting for audio sent to controller from "Chat Audio" to "Game Audio".

 

Also, more advanced headsets use Digital Optical for audio, so instead of setting Primary Audio Output to HDMI, you set it to Digital Optical (sound will still come out of the TV)

@throwupdaX88, yes, I'm excited about this because I own the headset. This headset isn't JUST for communicating with fellow gamers, it's capable of producing incredible sound. I use headsets because my girlfriend often passes out on the couch in the evening while watching tv and sometimes when I decide to watch a movie or play a game, using the headset is the perfect way to keep from waking her up while I'm playing, all while giving me surround sound.

LOL back to basics......................it's 2014, selling a console without media ability and going backwards is assinine. Only reason ps4 is seilling well is price, hype, they are squandering it with no games, or features fort ps4 right now.

So basically a pointless update, for something that should have been there at launch...

Back to basics? Even back in the day people researched what they were spending their money on. Was blindly spending $400+ ever basic?

Sighhh I'd rather see something useful like the suspend and resume feature we were promised or take over a game a friend is playing. But no, everyone needs headsets :/

Yeah, if this is the only feature in this update, I'd have to say I'm a little disappointed. First, I don't give a rats butt about headphones, I don't use them. I was hoping to see a few new features. But oh, well here's waiting another 2 months..

Odd, no games?  I have about 8 right now, and still have finished them all.  I'd expect a comment like yours to be from a cannon fodder,  But anyways your post i moot to me..   I bought mine to play games, not listen to MP3 or watch DVD/Blu-Ray..  It's a gaming device.. not a whole entertainment package.
