    Microsoft will include an Xbox One headset with every console, the company has decided.

    Company mouthpiece Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb revealed the u-turn during a just-posted Xbox One unboxing video.

    The mono headset will be included with all Xbox One consoles, Hryb said, not just in the limited Day One Edition.

    The console uses a new audio connector port, meaning that standard headsets (and your old Xbox 360 one) will need a new, paid-for adaptor.

    Microsoft previously said it would not include a headset with Xbox One as you could just use Kinect to chat instead. The company's UK distributor appeared to suggest last month that Microsoft had changed its mind, although then stated that it had made a mistake.

    Also included in the Xbox One box is a 4K-capable HDMI cable, a controller, and the system's required Kinect sensor.

    Watch the full Xbox One unboxing video below.

    Yeah it better come with it, there shouldn't even be a discussion about this. We're already $100 more, better be a nice damn headset.


    EDIT: Nevermind looks like it took them $2 to make it.

    WTF is "Liquid Black"? It's black. They're also wasting money on the 4k hdmi. Read this<a data-ipb='nomediaparse' href='http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7-57592539-221/4k-hdmi-cables-are-nonsense/'>http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7-57592539-221/4k-hdmi-cables-are-nonsense/</a>

    Who gives a crap about your new on button? I hate the light touch. Anyone with any belly at all hates it.

    BTW, all you racing fans, Impulse triggers are great for shooters, but not for you.

    <span style="font-size:14px;">The inside specs sound promising. The headset isn't a</span>Turtle Beach<span style="font-size:14px;"> but it sure beats none at all, and beats the old style. </span>
