In addition to announcing a new 1TB Xbox One console, Microsoft has also revealed it will offer a new version of its official Xbox One Wireless Controller. It will have a 3.5mm stereo headset jack, which will allow most third-party gaming headsets to directly connect to the controller for the first time.
Microsoft says that all of the accessories that worked with the current version of the Xbox One controller will work with the new version. That includes the Stereo Headset Adapter so people can control the audio directly with their fingers. However, the company has also put in some hardware improvements beyond the new headset jack. It states:
Microsoft will sell a black version of the new Xbox One controller on its own, along with a "Covert Forces" version that has a camouflage design in silver and black.
