Good thing I'm waiting. Although it may be possible to just use an external microphone until the patch releases for something like the Astro Mixamp.

Any wired 3.5mm headset (mono or stereo, including the one that comes with the PS4) will work with the controller's jack, and can stream both chat and in-game audio.

Really crappy deal .... I just got a new bluetooth headset this week for my PS4 Smiley Mad

 

I don't understand how can the PS4 use bluetooth but, not support bluetooth headsets at all? & why did they not bring this up when they announced the specs for the PS4 unit, controller, camrea, etc ?

Wait really?? that's awesome if that's true.  I haven't been following a lot of PS4 news lately ( i am getting one though), but that souns sweet.  So my pulse elite is still gonna work I just have to plug it into the controller via 3.5mm cable? The mic just wouldn't work?

And I'm assuming that even the Astro Mixamp could work through a 2.5 to 3.5 adaptor jack if ran from the controller to the Xbox 360 port. I guess we will wait and see.

This is really going to hamper my enjoyment of MP games like Killzone Shadow Fall until they patch this. Well at least I still use my Elites for some audio by plugging them into the controller unitl it is fixed. The little earpiace that comes with PS4 is junk.

That's a shame. I think I might wait to buy a pulse headset until it works on the PS4.
