Amazon Discounts PS3 Accessories
October is loaded with potentially awesome games, and we know a lot of wallets out there are going to be complaining bitterly. Hence, if you want to give your poor whining bank account a break, head on over to Amazon and partake of some their nifty new PlayStation 3 deals.
First of all, they've discounted the upcoming PlayStation 3 Bluetooth Headset, which releases on September 30. You can pre-order this item for $10 less than the suggested retail; it'll only cost you $39.96. You can save another ten bucks if you spring for that nifty wireless keypad, which is also down to $39.96. You'll have to wait a bit longer for the latter, though, as it's not scheduled to arrive until November 30. Still a damn good deal, though, and to complete the attractive discount trifecta, the Dual Shock 3 controller is down to $40.96. You can really stock up on all the newest accessories, and save yourself a good chunk of change in the process. Sure, one can make the argument that accessories used to be a whole lot cheaper back in the day, but if you want better stuff, you gotta pay for it. Besides, that headset is going to be capable of doing some pretty amazing things for something so small... Won't you need one for going online with Resistance 2?
As for the PS3 itself, it's best to say the machine now costs $200 less than it did upon launch, and a new 160GB mammoth machine is scheduled to drop for the holidays for $499. Could Sony dominate the latter part of 2008...?
