The PlayStation Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 was expected to release in Europe around two weeks ago, but branded as the “Gold Wireless Stereo Headset”. Sony has tweeted that the headset will now be available to purchase on February 28th (this Friday) and that you can pre-order the headset from Amazon.co.uk.
The headset is exactly the same as the one released in North America a few weeks ago, except that Sony has removed the “Gold” branding and image of the trophy. The headset box has also been updated to mention compatibility with the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
The tweet reads as follows:
