      I might well pick one of these up - I've yet to buy a ps4 but the blurb says it'll work with ps3. Wonder when retailers will start listing it?

      I'll be getting these next week

      I bought some stereo gaming headset cheap and they are terrible on bf4 with literally only left or right indications of sound!!
      These new ones are well priced and look nice!

      7.1 will be great on bf4 now

      I'm tempted but would like a surround headset that would work on playstation (3&4) and xbox (360 & 1 when I get it)

      I need one since the only source of sound I have is from my beats headphone hooked up to the controller.

      I like the look of these and £80 is a good price... will put an order in when available.

      THey look canny. Good price for 7.1, but are they cheap for a reason?

      I've been toying with a set of headphones for a while and these look like they'll fit the bill, price wise. I've some stuff to trade as well so it would be good if Game stock them. I'll also try and stop myself from playing Outlast until I've got some. :)

      Can't see them available to order anywhere though? Thought they were out this Friday?

      Look good and a good price but I'll await some user reviews. :)

      Also the 7.1 is mostly a gimmick ; the earpieces are set over your ears so there's no room for the 7 directed channels to actually have some space to use room reverberation and impulse responses for a real surround. :S. Being so close to the ears these will basically be 7.1 downmixed into nothing more than a standard stereo image. Even if there were multichannels in each ear (and there might be!) being so close to the ear makes it all a bit meh

      10th of Feb would be Monday... but yeah I can't see them listed anywhere other than Amazon.com. It does say 'market depending' though so maybe we'll have to wait longer.

      Well there is no release date set here yet (unless I just havent seen it) so we'll be waiting for a while anyways. Im sure you'll be able to preordwr this week when they inevitably announce launch date.

      Yep I'm struggling to find them,contacted my local online retailer shopto.net and they are aware of them but don't know anything about getting hold of them...

      Looks like a few Sharks on eBay will be selling them next week if there not in the UK

      Anyone that finds a UK supplier please post on here because Sony don't seem to want to know about a firmware update for Bluetooth support and the fact my Turtle Beach PX5 are useless.

      They must think we are made of money

      In fact it sickens me to think that when I bought these a couple of years ago for the 360 and the Playstation 3 they have no support on a next generation console and a headset that cost £169.99 at the time...and that is ridiculous .

      Quick question. Will these be on par with or better than the ps3 pulse elites in terms of audio?
