Next-generation consoles already have to deal with the disappointment of backward incompatibility when it comes to games, so how do the accessories and peripherals hold up? The answer is mostly a mixed bag.

Want to have a better idea about the accessories you already have? What about audio specifications? Be sure to watch as Jeff and Peter slice through the misinformation about legacy devices and give some sound advice on what gamers should do with their old headsets and accessories, and whether or not it's wise to hold off on purchasing new ones for use with Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Ask the Experts continues tomorrow with a brand new episode!
