PlayStation 4 update supports Sony's pricey headsets, including a new model

PlayStation 3 owners who quickly moved to the PS4 couldn't take their expensive Pulse headsets with them, but that won't be a problem for long. A version 1.6 update reaching the newer console late this evening will bring full support for both the regular Pulse and its Elite Edition, giving players 7.1-channel virtual surround sound and voice chat through Sony's official hardware. Elite Edition owners will also get to use a Headset Companion App (due later this month) that sets custom audio profiles. To mark the occasion, Sony is launching some new audio gear: the Gold Wireless Headset offers 7.1-channel audio, voice and game profiles in a travel-ready, foldable design. It should sell for $100 when it hits store shelves early this month.
