PlayStation-Branded Bluetooth Headset Confirmed
If you play online a lot, you probably want the best headset you can find. You want it to be functional, comfortable and reliable, and hopefully, that's exactly what you're going to get with this new PlayStation-branded Bluetooth headset from Sony.
According to PS3Fanboy, this nifty gadget has been officially unveiled and it will arrive with the release of SOCOM Confrontation, which is scheduled to hit stores on September 16. It's not altogether different from the Jabra headset that came packaged with Warhawk last year, but the design appears to be much better, and yes, that is a PlayStation logo on there. The standard features will be included, like a Mute button, longer battery life, and a special USB charging cradle (as pictured here). We have yet to receive any details on pricing for the unit by itself, but it's rumored that the SOCOM Confrontation bundle will go for $79.99. That would tell us the headset itself wouldn't cost more than $20 or $30, depending on how much of a deal that game bundle will be.
We'll have more on Confrontation over the summer, and in the meantime, if you're an online buff and a PS3 owner, keep a close eye on this new headset.
