USB headsets will be a viable option for voice chat following an update, due sometime after the console's launch, and anything that requires a digital optical connection will play game audio. Owners of Sony's Pulse headset will also have to wait for a future update, Sony says.
The PS4 will launch on November 15. The $399 console, which sports a new DualShock 4 controller and optional PS4 Eye camera, is currently up for pre-order through most retailers.
