Those planning on grabbing a bluetooth headset or hoping to use their existing USB headset for the upcoming next-gen PlayStation 4 console will sadly be in for a surprise with GameInformer reporting that the Sony console will not support Bluetooth headsets, and those wanting to use their existing USB headsets will have to wait until post-launch for an update to enable said headsets.

The news comes with Astro Gaming revealing that their headsets will work for chat on PlayStation 4, just not until a post-launch update. This caused GameInformer to investigate, revealing a complicated answer that is sure to upset a few people.
The answer we received from Sony is complicated. If you have a Sony-branded PULSE gaming headset (or the elite edition of that product), you will need to wait for a system update coming in the future. It seems that those will not work at all at launch.

Any other headset that relies on bluetooth for chat will not work at all. If you have something that relies on USB for chat (like the Astro mixamps and Astro A50 wireless system), you'll eventually be able to use those. An update will be coming in the future.
Luckily any headset that is reliant on digital optical for their game audio will still be functional on launch, though you won't be able to use the headset for chat yet.

Hopefully we'll hear more on the situation but for now take solace in the fact that both next-gen consoles will be bundling in free headsets for every purchase, though they obviously won't be as high quality compared to some of the more expensive headsets out there.
