This has been such a slow week that the Xbox One's lack of pack-in headset made serious headlines. Though gamers are divided about whether Kinect's directional microphone will be up to the task, Microsoft has announced that an adapter is in the works to allow Xbox One owners to use existing Xbox 360 headsets.
The Xbox Support Twitter account announced the news while responding to an inquisitive Xbox 360 owner.
@craigfellows We are working to develop an adapter for current wired headsets to connect. More details as we approach launch. ^PS

This will doubtlessly come as good news to those who own pricey third-party Xbox 360 headsets, though naturally price and availability will be a key issue. More as we hear it.
In case you haven't been following this story, Microsoft recently unveiled the Xbox One's official headset, but confirmed that it won't be included with new consoles because Kinect is capable of fulfilling the same functionality.
