PS4 gets system update

Sony has released a new update for the PlayStation 4 that allows gamers to use wireless headsets, experience 7.1 virtual surround sound and chat, all while playing playing PS4 games.

The latest system software update for PlayStation 4 (version 1.60) is available and brings compatibility support to PS4 for the PULSE Wireless Stereo Headset and the original Wireless Stereo Headset. This means that gamers will now be able to use these wireless headsets on a PS4 and can experience 7.1 virtual surround sound and voice chat while playing PS4 games.

Meanwhile, a new headset will land in South Africa in April, namely the Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0, at a recommended retail price of R1299. for PS4. It features 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 the PS4, PS3, PC or Mac for up to 8 hours thanks to its rechargeable battery. It can also be used on the go with a 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.

Users will also be able to access custom sound modes to enhance gameplay, music and movie experience on PS4 and PS3 through the Headset Companion App, available soon from PlayStation Store at no extra cost (also available through an update patch to the PULSE Manager app on PS3).

The first sound mode that will be coming soon to the app is being developed by Sucker Punch for their highly anticipated PS4 exclusive, inFAMOUS Second Son. In addition, the app also offers a variety of preset audio modes for games, music and movies, as well as a tool to create custom EQ modes.

The Headset Companion App will be compatible with Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 and the PULSE Wireless Stereo Headsets, on both PS4 and PS3.
