Sony has announced, at Leipzig today, their latest addition to the PlayStation 3 accessory family. Â The PlayStation 3 Chat Pad. Â It’s actually a “snap on” accessory to the ordinary PS3 game controller, it’s due for consumer release by the end of November. Â Ah, you see, it’s nearing Christmas and Sony would like to expand sales even more. Â I bet you a number of games will soon spring out that uses the Chat Pad extensively.
This tiny keypad will allow players to “chat”… as if they’re not near for a whisper! 🙂 Â Quite interesting to note is that the Chat Pad is actually a blue tooth device. Â Aaaahhhh… and I would venture a guess that it will connect to other blue tooth devices as well… there’s the rub? Â Oh, and there’s a separate battery for the Chat Pad, good news is it can be recharged thru a USB port.
