Microsoft is updating the Xbox One controller with a 3.5mm headset port

Long past due that this was added heck it should have came  day 1    but i guess better late then never...  now i am going to need to buy another controller when it comes out...



---------------------------
Microsoft hasn't officially announced it, but it looks like the company has some changes in store for its Xbox One controller, after its own support site revealed a feature that isn't yet available on the current version.

A user over on NeoGAF spotted that the company had updated a page on the Xbox Support site entitled 'Get to know your Xbox One Wireless Controller', with a revised diagram of the controller, featuring a "3.5-mm port" (number 16 on the image below).



The updated support notes on the same page confirm that this is an integrated audio port on the controller:

3.5-mm port (16). Used to connect compatible 3.5-mm audio devices. Only available on controllers released after June 2015.
This more or less confirms that Microsoft plans to release a revised version of the controller in the coming weeks - and with the E3 gaming conference fast approaching, it seems like a safe bet that the company will make an announcement in its keynote at the event on June 15.

With future controllers set to include an onboard 3.5mm audio jack, it seems the days of the $24.99 Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter are numbered.

Meh. I don't mind the chat adaptor with the added mute volume adjusters.

Yes. Should have been day one, or at the least when the adapters came out. Now let's just hope the new controllers are not $24.99 more than the old.
