Apparently, Sony will be pushing out an update sometime after launch in order to support chat via at least some Bluetooth and usb headsets, such as those used on the ps3.

I'm not really that affected by this, but I just hate the new trend of announcing features and then pulling out the "coming soon" card. It just feels cheap, why not just initially tell me that it'll be an upcoming feature?

This is a good thing.  But the problem I have is this,  the way Sony bragged about being able to use your legacy accessories during press events, they made it seem like this would be available at launch.

Never had a USB or Bluetooth headset for PS3.. doesn't the PS4 come with one that people could use in the mean time?

It does seem odd. Didn't the PS3 support bluetooth headsets out of the box? I didn't get my headset until maybe a year later or something so I can't be sure.

yeah, the PS3 came ready with that functionality and the slimline models even had bundled versions that came with a headset.

cheaper, it's a plug into the ear style, I wasn't planning on using it unless I had no other choice

Well as hard as it may be to believe, the X1 headset is a step up from the earbuds that Sony is bundling, unless you love earbuds.

Okay.  I like earbuds, as I find over the ear ones tend to slide off/not sit right.  But from what I have read the sony ones are pretty ###### in comparison.
