im pretty sure not EVERY bluetooth headset will work with the xbox360's wireless feature, as we all know microsoft is very very money hungry, and this woul definately cause them to lose alot of money here are the links to the bluetooth headsets you can buy that WILL work with the xbox360. they are quite expensive but are very good quality and the sound is crisp and crystal clear and others hear you fine, you truly get what you pay for with this deal, this would be great for an addition to your christmas wishlist because its something you want but not necessarily need to buy for such a high price so probably wont doso, but dont cheat yourself buy this quality merchandise.

Are you confusing and interchanging Bluetooth and Wifi? They're both separate technologies.

Lol you are idiot. Money hungry? Unlike Sony who doesnt like money and pratically gives away their products...cough cough...$600 for a paper weigh....both are large corporations....with the same goals.

XBOX 360 does notuse Bluetooth. Itsa proprietarywifi. Both of those headsets will work withany XBox360.

how is he an idiot, you were wrong he was right. You were trying to explain something you didn't know anything about. Every company out there is money hungry so I don't know why you mention microsoft is money hungry, when every other company out there is also. Also, microsoft does not lose money by not using bluetooth technlogy for their system. Why would you make someone buy a bluetooth headset when they can just get a wireless one like you were talking about. They aren't losing any money by not using bluetooth, the select few care about it, and those select few A. have a 360 and B. have a headset for the 360.

While he may have gotten Bluetooth and the proprietary Microsoft WiFi standard confused, jumping straight into calling him an idiot is a little too harsh. And he does have a valid point. While Sony charges a lot more for their console, that extra initial payment gets you the freedom of using any bluetooth headset, a built-in roomy hard drive, a free online gaming experience, and built in wireless networking. Those are things that all have to be paid extra for with the xbox. So yes, while the initial investment of $199 may be lower, after you buy a hard drive, wireless adapter (which at $99 is WAY overpriced), and keep continuously paying to play online, your total investment reaches much closer to the initial investment of a PS3 for a comparable gaming experience (but don't forget that you have to keep renewing your xbox LIVE subscription, so your investment is still growing.) So yes, Sony and Microsoft are both out to make money, but in the way they do it, Microsoft seems much harsher, as they advertise one low price, but require you to buy all sorts of expensive extras for 'added convenience' and a comparable experience, many of which I would gladly have paid a little extra for to have been included up front... Next time, think some things through and come up with a well developed point of view before just jumping in and calling people idiots.
