Microsoft’s new Xbox Wireless Headset appeared in the company’s Xbox Series X and S launches advertising all the way back in October. British actor Daniel Kaluuya picked up the headset early in the ad, but no one noticed that it was an unannounced accessory at the time.
Microsoft announced its new Xbox Wireless Headset on Tuesday, which has rotating earcup discs that let you adjust the volume and game / audio chat balance. The new headset will be available for $ 99 on March 16.
Aaron Greenberg, general manager of Xbox game marketing, confirmed that the new Xbox Wireless Headset was part of the launch announcement during an audio call in the clubhouse that attended The Verge last night. This is not the first time Microsoft has openly teased unannounced Xbox products. Xbox CEO Phil Spencer hid the Xbox Series S on his shelf last year, before Microsoft even announced that they were working on a next-generation console.
Microsoft has a habit of hiding secret messages and clues in its Xbox videos. The company originally teased its Xbox One X console with videos that hinted at the 6 teraflops with GPU performance. Even the latest Xbox Series X console was teased in videos, under the Scarlett code name.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from all of this: Always watch Microsoft’s Xbox videos carefully.
