New PS3 Accessories Priced, Dated
Some of you are already aware of the new PlayStation 3 peripherals headed your way this holiday season, but if not, here's all the information you'll need.
According to NextGen Player, both the Wireless Keypad (formerly announced at E3) and the AC adapter that can charge the Dual Shock 3, Sixaxis, Bluetooth Headset, and the aformentioned Keypad are primed and ready for release. The Keypad, which handily attaches to the front of your controller, will retail for $49.99 and should first start appearing at retail locations next week. The AC adapter, which can simultaneously charge "any two compatible devices through the USB connector and without having to turn on the PS3," will go for $24.99 and should show up in the second week of December. Yes, it will also charge a PSP as well. We're also aware that this is a Canadian source, but as Canada is part of North America - and Sony often refers to North America instead of the U.S. in their announcements - we'll assume these details are valid for gamers in this country. There may be a few small discrepancies, but the bottom line is that both of these very useful accessories can be on your holiday wish list.
Just don't expect the Sixense to be under the tree this year; that one is probably still a ways off. Still relatively big news, though.
