Microsoft has announced that it's working on an adapter that would allow current-gen and third party headsets to be compatible with the Xbox One.

Lead planner Alberto Penello confirmed the adapter on Twitter, and also announced that the adapter won't be a part of the standard accessory kit shipped with the console, but an optional one.

Some confusion still exists over whether the new Xbox One headset will be a part of the standard accessory. The latest rumours hovering around were that headsets would be sold separately. However no update has been given by Microsoft yet.
