PS4 day-one update will bring USB headset compatibility

PlayStation 4 software update 1.50, the day-one patch for Sony's next-gen console, will bring USB headset compatibility to the system, according to an update to Sony's lengthy PS4 FAQ.

A report last month said that the PS4 would not support Bluetooth or USB headsets at launch, but that the functionality would arrive after launch. The day-one patch will bring compatibility with the latter, while leaving Bluetooth headset compatibility for a presumed future update.

Early adopters can download PlayStation 4 System Software Version 1.50 now from the official PlayStation website to save setup time when they receive their systems this week. Click the link above to learn the five steps for updating the PS4 through USB media.
