Sony has announced that its upcoming next-generation console, PlayStation 4 will support the PlayStation 3 wireless headsets. A Sony official confirmed the news to Polygon, at the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con.

Sony had said that it will be shipping PlayStation 4 consoles with mono earbud, after Microsoft declined to ship any Xbox One headset with the console, considering it comes with compulsory Kinect that will support voice inputs.
