Microsoft's Xbox One
is set to ship at some point this year, and we all know what that means: accessories and peripherals galore. Turtle Beach, a known name in the audio sector, has confirmed that it'll be amongst the first third-party companies to reveal accessories to suit the next-gen console. The Ear Force X12 is already the best-selling third-party headset, so there's no surprise in the announcement -- clearly, Microsoft needs Turtle Beach producing Xbox One-compatible peripherals.
"In Turtle Beach we have a partner that can help Microsoft
deliver world class gaming audio experiences to our customers," said Branden Powell Director of Strategic Alliances Xbox Hardware Group. "Turtle Beach has consistently innovated in wireless, surround sound, and other features and we are looking forward to working with them." "Turtle Beach is dedicated to creating audio products that improve players overall game experience," said Bob Picunko, Chief Marketing Officer at Turtle Beach. "We are very excited about the opportunity to work with the XBOX team to develop new products that support the advanced XBOX platform.
Exact pricing is expected as the console gets closer to launch.
