Larry Hryb (Major Nelson) has confirmed that the Xbox One will ship with an included headset at launch. By showing an unboxing video and then double clarifying for me because I (at first) missed that video shown above.
@XboxJay Well, if I pulled it out of the box in an unboxing video I would say that’s a yes.

The headset will also be sold separately at retail outlets.
In other news… you will need a Gold Subscription for the Xbox One DVR, SmartMatch and Skype functions.
