The PS3 is compatible with almost any Bluetooth headset, but now you can own a officially branded Sony Bluetooth headset that gives you detailed information onto the PS3’s on-screen display. The new headset has been unveiled by Sony in Japan and will hit Japanese store shelves on October 30 for 5,000 yen ($46). The headset is expected to arrive in North America shortly after the Japanese debut.
Wait, if $46 for the stand alone headset is to steep for you, the same headset will be packaged with SOCOM: Confrontation for a price tag of $60. So for 14 dollars more you also get the upcoming multiplayer only game, and that release date for the SOCOM bundle is October 14 sooner than the Japan release of the stand alone headset.
Sony is making a big push lately for system add ons and I think it is about time. Will I buy the headset? Probably, but I would get the SOCOM bundle just because of the price difference. The headset is similar to the Jabra headset that was packaged with Warhawk but this one is Sony’s official headset. The downside is the USB charging cradle, I would much rather prefer a regular old plug in the wall charger but I do like the look of the charging cradle.
