Unfortunately, those who own the previous generation of gaming headsets that use USB for the chat functions will not be able to use the device in the PlayStation 4 at launch.

As posted on Gamespot, Sony has confirmed to Game Informer that the "PlayStation 4 will not support Bluetooth headsets for chat."

The company adds that the update will provide for Sony's branded PULSE headsets. It said that the update will be available in the coming months, but an exact release date was not mentioned.

Furthermore, Sony also told that the headsets will be able to play the game audio via the PS4's optical connector.

Moreover, the PlayStation 4 bundle will include a mono headset, while its competitor, the Xbox One will need an adapter "to allow compatibility with its proprietary microphone connector" and the adapter's release date is yet to be announced.

Prior to PlayStation 4 release date happening next month, it is reported that the next-gen console has already reached 1.5 million of pre-orders, as posted by International Business Times. o

Due to high demand for the PlayStation 4 ( as indicated by significant numbers of orders even before the PlayStation 4 release date), it is possible for Sony to face a supply issue, according to an industry analyst, Michael Pachter.

The official PlayStation 4 release date in the US is scheduled for November 15 and it will come with a price tag worth $399. Meanwhile, the PlayStation 4 release date in European countries is set for two weeks after the console's arrival in the US. Gamers in Europe should be able to get the highly-anticipated console by November 29, valued at €399/£349.
