Microsoft is 'looking into' adding headset to Xbox One bundle

Earlier this month, there were rumors that Microsoft was going to add a headset to all of their Xbox One bundles, but that rumor was quickly discounted by the company. Now the head of product planning for the Xbox division hints that Microsoft could change their minds on this issue.

Microsoft's Albert Penello was asked a question on his Twitter account Monday about possibly adding the headset to the Xbox One, with that person saying they didn't want to hear kids screaming on their TV speakers. Penello's response on Twitter was short but interesting: "We've heard the feedback. Looking into it."

If Microsoft does indeed add a headset to all Xbox One bundles, it would represent yet another 180 in the company's launch of its next generation console, following feedback from their customers. Previously, Microsoft has said they want the Kinect sensor to act as their main way for Xbox One owners to communicate with other people on Xbox Live.

Microsoft recently started taking pre-orders for their official Xbox One headset, which is now being sold for $24.99. A number of companies have also announced plans to launch their own headsets for the Xbox One, including Turtle Beach.
