You missed the point where it said you need Kinect to recognise you so it can log onto XBL.
So unless your face looks like the inside of a dark box of foam, your bolox'd


I'm guessing by the connections that my Genetic cable supplier box would connect to the hdmi in and then appear as an app on the Xone dashboard. This would allow my to Skype or play sports games and watch TV at the same time.
But to change channel I would use the standard remote ??

Therefore in this format, I need Cable, Xone and TV all n at the same time and whilst Kinect is watching me scratch me nuts...

Hope you're all right about the optical, because HDMI only would be the proverbial dealbreaker for me as it would mean my "HD Ready" TV is incompatible with hte One.

Good news, somewhat tempered by the bad news in the story it links to:

Xbox One Will Not Include a Headset - IGN

Microsoft won't be releasing an adapter for older headsets until 2014 Which is a pain in the ass for me as I only game with my Turtle Beachs. So either I have to use my current set but have no voice/chat or look into getting yet another headset if I want to talk to people.

I'm starting to get a bit miffed at all this expense, we aren't all made of bloody money Microsoft!!!!

As milton pointed out. They come with basic one anyway.
Until i got my Turtle beach last year, i was doing exactly that. Xbox wireless in one ear, headphones over the top

Mine is RCA lead, so as long as you can convert XBone sound to RCA, should be OK!

Am kinda hoping Kinect will just pick up my voice well enough, and then I won't need to wear two sets.

Looks more like a coathanger with a bit of tape and a small lump of plastic on the end to me. Come to think of it, I think that may have been the aerial of a friend's car almost 20 years ago...

I get that people are annoyed with the lack of wheel support but at no point when buying it were you told that it would work with future generations.. and why should it? If i bought some parts for my car i wouldn't expect them to work with the newest model.

There's a headset bundled with the console. It'll get you through the couple of months until the headset adaptor situation gets sorted.

I don't get the Turtle Beach thing myself, never used a set or felt the need to buy one. The MS Wireless thingy has done me fine for years.

However the std 3.5mm? headphone plug across the whole industry should have sufficed. Doing a proprietary socket/cable (read: Apple/Sony) type thing isnt done for any reason they've reasoned i can see other than ensuring you buy the kit they want you or their partners to have. Sony for one MOSTLY learned that lesson in the 2000s....
It smacks of nothing more than money grabbing on peripherals etc.

Id agree that the bundled crappy one will do for now and sort of done me for many years. Having the turtle beaches only last year for fathers day was an eye opener and ensured more audio enjoyment than i realised

Same here - when the cheap bundled headset packed up I got the Turtle Beach and the improved sound over the TV was an ear opener too. I'm sure I'll get the adapter when it comes out if it's not too expensive, but it is annoying that I will have had to buy two adapters to get the thing to work just because MS have gone away from standard ports or limited the number of types available.

While I get where you're coming from, the way I see it (at least with the HDMI lead issue) is that I would expect my new car to work on any road rather than having to go out and buy a special adapter to allow me to drive it.
