  • Xbox Kinect Will Work as Headset

    If you don't want to spend extra money on a headset after buying the Xbox One, you'll be happy to know that the Kinect will also back up as an alternative to the microphone/headset.

    There's no official word on the quality of the Kinect microphone, and you'll have to listen to players through your TV unless you have a pair of compatible headphones when using the Kinect for voice chat.

    The Kinect does include a 'wide array' of microphones though, so it'd be surprising if the call quality received from the Kinect was poor.

    The official Xbox One is always up for grabs for those that don't like the openness of the Kinect microphone and TV speaker combo, and there are also many alternatives for better audio quality including headset models from Turtle Beach specifically designed for the Xbox One.

  • Will you be getting an Xbox One? Here's Some Accessories you May Need

    Unlike the Xbox 360, the Xbox One won't come with a headset, and you'll also have to separately buy other accessories if you want to get the most out of your Xbox One experience.

    At launch, they'll be a few accessories available to you. Firstly, and probably the most needed accessory for those who want to be able to taunt the other team from the comfort of their sofa, is of course a headset.

    The official Xbox One headset looks a lot like the current Xbox 360 headset- It has one thin headband that goes around the circumference of your head and then a simple microphone branching out from one side. The volume and mute buttons have been moved down to the port where the microphone will plug into the controller.

    Alternatively, you could bag yourself a Turtle Beach headset- at launch Turtle Beach will have The EarForce XO Seven and the EarForce XO Four. Both headsets are of a much better quality than the Xbox One headset and they both include a decent quality headset and microphone.

    If you're the kind of person that doesn't like taking a trip to the shops every time you need new batteries you’ll certainly want to buy the recharge kit. The Xbox One recharge pack looks very similar to the Xbox 360 model and according to Microsoft will be capable of recharging two batteries within four hours.

    The final accessory that is worth a mention is something that'll appeal to any beat'em up fans out there. Mad Catz has designed the Arcade Fight Stick Tournament Edition 2 fighting stick and it will be available at launch. It includes 8 buttons and a joystick, and will be perfect for Killer Instinct, a game that will be available for free at launch.
