Report: PS4 won't recognize Bluetooth headsets for voice chat

Bluetooth headsets will not work for voice chat on PS4, Sony has confirmed to Game Informer. This is in contrast to the PS3, which has enabled Bluetooth pairing from the get-go.

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.
