It has been previously reported this week that Microsoft's Xbox One will not be packaged with headsets at launch and will use a proprietary port (Making using the Kinect2 an amusing experience if you have some high powered hi-fi speakers sitting right next to it causing inevitable background noise in your chat!).

According to Microsoft you won't be able to use your old headset and will likely have to purchase a expensive alternative until Microsoft come up with a fix.

"The Wireless Controller has been redesigned to allow for higher data transfer speed between the controller and the console," a Microsoft representative told GameInformer. "This also required creating a new expansion port design for headsets and future controller add-on devices which is different from a standard audio plug input. Xbox plans to develop solutions in the near future to allow consumers to connect many brands of wired gaming headsets to the Wireless Controller for gaming and chat audio.”

This is a far different story from Sony's Playstation 4 that has a normal mono headset (Basically any headset will work) that comes with the system at launch that can be plugged into the PS4 controller itself.
