#PS4 firmware update tomorrow (v1.60) bringing Pulse Headset support, general stability improvements and ability to mute camera.

Blog post http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2014/...1-60-detailed/

The next system software update for PlayStation 4 (version 1.60) will be released tomorrow (4th February 2014), bringing compatibility support to PS4 for the PULSE Wireless Stereo Headset (including the GTA V limited edition version) and the original Wireless Stereo Headset.
This means that you will now be able to use these wireless headsets on your PS4 and can experience 7.1 virtual surround sound and voice chat while playing your PS4 games.

New headset coming too

Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 for PS4

We’re also pleased to tell you about a new headset that is coming soon for PS4. The Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 will be available from 10th February 2014 (market dependant) at 79.99/€89.99 SRP.

This new wireless headset for PS4 features stunning 7.1 virtual surround sound, as well as a crystal clear, noise-cancelling internal microphone for chatting to friends on Party, when playing online multiplayer.

The headset can be used at home using the USB wireless adaptor with your PS4, PS3, PC or Mac for up to 8 hours thanks to its rechargeable battery. You can also use the headset on the go with your PS Vita or with other mobile devices using the included 3.5mm stereo mini jack. With its foldable design the headset is ideal for travel and storage, so when you’re not using it, simply fold your headset up.

Why didn't you have one before, The Last of Us was amazing with it. If you have a HMV local check there first as they have been known to be spotted in the yellow sticker sale.

Also you might want to consider the rumoured 'Gold' headset coming out, that judging by looks may well be comfier.

Don't have a HMV anymore, it closed :(. I'll keep an eye out.

Still no resuming games from standby? :(

It was the big feature they promised at the reveal. DS/3DS/Vita does it, PCs do it, surely it can't be that difficult to implement?

EDIT: Definitely buying that headset though.

Good point. The cynic in me feels like that's too much of a coincidence. Still, not complaining since I'll get to horror about properly with the lights off and headphones on.

I thought that this was disproven and that it is a minimal gain from shutting off?

I think it's more like it hasn't been proven whether it is a significant power draw or not during normal usage of the controller. Someone tested it but the controller was stationary (i.e. not sending data by button inputs etc) so it was inconclusive.

Sweet, perfect timing for when I get a PS4 this weekend.

Now for the real question, will I have any issues switching the dongle for my wireless headset between my PS3 and PS4?

Suppose that's one thing to cross off. But where is media playback, custom soundtracks.

Edit, anyone else get that annoying lag between the boot logo, the epilepsy warning and dash loading?

So many things missing from this update... I really hope SONY is listening to their fans as they claim to be--there's a huge list of minor and major things about the PS4's OS and UI that still need addressed.
