Microsoft is working on an adapter allowing you to use Xbox 360 wired headsets with the Xbox One.

The news comes via the Xbox Support Twitter account, responding to a question about whether existing headsets will work with the new console.

“We are working to develop an adapter for current wired headsets to connect. More details as we approach launch,” a representative said.

The Xbox One will not come bundled with a headset, because the Kinect, which is included in every package and required for the console to function, will perform basic voice chat duties. There is an official headset, though.

Both Mad Catz and Turtle Beach have said they’ll be developing peripherals for the new console as well.
