    The only reason I would consider getting a PS4 is the Unchartered series and being able to play online with friends.
    However, with the (little) amount of free time I'm having, I see neither happening anytime soon.

    If I could turn the free time I had into money I would be a billionaire.

    Here's a brief update on the "XBOX vs. PS4" part of this discussion:

    I have Logitech G430 Headset...which I absolutely love! It works like a charm in the PS4 just by plugging it in and it's good to go!

    NOT so with the XBOX One S! The only way it will work is by me streaming an XBOX game to my PC...with the headset plugged into the PC. Thumbs DOWN on the XBOX where the USB ports are pretty much useless for something like this. This is absolutely retarded as far as tech goes. (And only goes to prove that $$$ is all MS essentially cares about rather than the gaming EXPERIENCE!)

    I recently did this for my nephew. I used a Sennheiser PCV 05 adapter, plus that damn headset adapter MS sells. Similar to this:



    Edit: BTW, to save some bucks I bought a used headset adapter, because I couldn't justify the $30+.

    This is all well and good...and a nice video to show what's been done. However, I really do prefer my gamepad unencumbered with all that other "stuff" connected to it. And, to be clear, there's absolutely no reasonable excuse for the XBOX to not work with 3rd party headsets. It's just the greediness of MS wanting only their proprietary accessories to work.

    And, I do have a MS approved headset as well. But, it's not nearly as comfortable...to make just one point...as the Logitech is to wear. I can wear this one for hours on end and never be uncomfortable with it. This is mainly due to having to wear one over these cochlear processors that sit over each ear.

    I have a wireless headset that is wireless from Skullcandy that is for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One, it's hub (which connected via USB) worked out of the box for the Xbox One and One S but for the PS4 I had to "update" the firmware on the hub using my PC, otherwise it works great.
