Sony's planning a PlayStation 4 firmware update for tomorrow, February 4, to supplement the launch of their propietary Wireless Stereo Headset. Firmware 1.60 isn't much to write home about, unfortunately, but it does offer a few everyday improvements for the common PS4 user. That includes some "general stability improvements" which may as simple as forcing you to restart your console, as well as ability to mute camera.
What this about Sony's Wireless Stereo Headset then? Just that. It's a pair of headphones featuring 7.1 virtual surround sound and an internal microphone. Its battery is said to last a solid eight hours of gaming, whether that be on the PS4 or connected to the PS Vita via the included 3.5mm audio cable. Considering it's Sony's official headset it won't be cheap, costing a robust $99.99/£79.99/€89.99.
While I'm always wary of first-party releases like this, which can sacrifice quality and craftsmanship while raising prices just because it says "Official" on the box, Sony's known for making reliable technology. Not to mention they probably wouldn't want to get stung for releasing a piece of junk so early in the PlayStation 4's life-cycle. If you've got $99 dollars sitting around and are in need of a headset for your PS4 then you could definitely do worse.
For the rest of us, firmware 1.60 for the PlayStation 4 doesn't look particularly eventful.
