A new system update will be available to download tonight for PlayStation 4 owners, labeled as firmware version 1.60. The update brings support for Sony’s wireless headsets, such as the Pulse and Pulse Elite, as well as to the newly announced Gold Wireless Headset that launches early next month. The Sony Gold Wireless Headset offers custom audio modes for specific PlayStation games, customizable faceplates, and a microphone that features noise cancelling technology. Just like the Pulse headsets from Sony, the Gold Wireless Headset offers 7.1 virtual surround sound. The wireless headsets that are being supported on the PlayStation 4 due to the new firmware update connect via USB and plug directly into the console.
No other information has been provided surrounding the PlayStation 4 version 1.60 update, such as if the console will now play CDs or allow for 3D Blu-ray playback.
