Quite a few Sony console and handheld owners have been waiting for this - details on the PlayStation 3 BlueTooth headset and PlayStation Portable GPS units have now (finally) surfaced the Internet.
Headset looks awesome, although the one I got now works perfectly, I might get the official one for the hell of it
I probably will end up getting it too...especially if it comes with Socom in a bundle... My jabra that came with Warhawk is fine for now...but the set I have for my cell phone is nearly 4 years old, and the battery only last for about 15 minutes of talking...so with this PS3 thing, I can transfer the jabra over to my cell phone permanently... it does look pretty cool... but that picture is not real...its just a digital drawing of some sort, so who knows how official it is...
awesome headset! It works with cellphones TOO! Go Sony!!!!!!!
The recharging dock and automatic pairing through USB sold it for me. It looks nice too. I'll probably get the SOCOM bundle but honestly I'd rather just have the game installed on my HDD instead of having to swap disks. Still the bundle price is hard to beat if you're going to get SOCOM anyway.
That headset looks ba-dass. I wonder how small it is. When I went and ordered my silver Jabra JX10 for Warhawk, I about died when I saw how small it really was. I got it new and OEM for just $40 (retail is at $160!!!)It's like the size of a paperclip and I can barely tell if I'm wearing it. And the quality is top notch. Basicly, this headset better kick major @ss for me to go out and buy it too. I kinda need a new one anyway as it is. JX10's literally begin falling apart after so long. It's either this or another JX10.
when I have money and nothing else to buy in the coming week but the one I got with Warhawk will do P.S. I never really played SOCOM before so might as well try
I broke the ear support of mine Warhawk bundled Jabra... I don't have a clu of what to do with it now (actually, I wrapped it with addesive type and still functional, but that's too nerd to go with this). If I can't change the ear ring, I'll probably get this new one.
its better if you get the SOCOM bundle for $10 more than the standalone BT
That is a very good value, just like the WH bundle. By the way, that PSP GPS looks slick, I might have to get a PSP soon and get that.
That headset is rad! & SOCOM: Confrontation bundle, I'm sold : )
$80 bucks that's it OMG when is this coming out???
works with cellphones and comes with SOCOM. AWESOME!!!!!
i like how the ps3 headset mocks the red ring of death
I noticed that too. Actually, it was the very first thing I noticed when I looked at the picture. Looks really cool though.
I would prefer the color to be blue to give it a more cool feeling but whatever works
So there you have it bro's...lol MGS4 and SOCOM with this baby!
why would i buy this, if its gunna be around £25-30 when i get a headset that does the same job for £5-10
I can't understand the disagree. Unless people know that this does something that other, cheaper headsets do not, they're being brand loyalists for purchasing this. My Jabra works just fine
If you're planning on getting SOCOM and don't have headset, it's a good deal. Standalone it's not though.
I actually really like using the Eyetoy...it works perfectly you dont have anything on your head..its great. I wonder how many people uses theirs. On topic the Headset just screams class and you can see it and know its a Sony Product...unlike the plastic. Never mind. No need!
I certainly do. Haven't used a headset since I got the Eye. But I may pick this up simply to have another option. Never know when it may come in handy.
I was trying to play Army of Two with a gentlemen that was using the EyeToy. I could hear him just fine, but he couldn't hear me at all. The reason he couldn't hear me is because my voice was getting played over the same speakers as the game sound. So if there was heavy action going on in the game he couldn't hear me. If you have a BT headset the other persons voice comes through the headset directly to your ear. So please buy a BT headset instead of using the EyeToy if your planning on effectively communicating online.
Looks as if he didn't have things set up correctly. Sounds like a personal problem.
What the hell. stand alone is 49.99, so 10 bucks more and u get a game? btw, does anybody know any cheaper headsets for ps3. where do i buy one?
So whereever bluetooth headsets are sold.
Its kinda like the Warhawk bundle since your able to dl the whole game or go to the store and pay a little more and get a headset
With those prices I'll definetly pick up the bundle version
That is one sexy BT headset, $60 for SOCCOM and the headset? Count me in.
i'll pick it up for sure ive been waiting for this for a long time , about sony !!!!
I think it would be nice if Sony allowed peripherals to attach to the SIXAXIS usb port. It's rechargeable and has a bluetooth connection so devices like headsets could just plug directly into the controller. Just a thought.
What I want is a headset that actually gets the game sounds too, but I think I'm out of luck, even with USB ones.
that you don't get the sound when you play? then how do you hear co players?directly from the tv speakers?
I want the headset.
That headset does like nice. I might get it so that I can have one dedicated to my phone and that one for the PS3. I do want to try out the GPS thing just to see how it works.
With full game sound and music. Now that be awesome playing games like Condemned 2 in the night
Answer: See "BT Headset". It's totally ridiculous that Sony to this day still doesnt have a bundle that includes a headset.
it said it supports voice commands for some games....Does that mean the one i have now doesnt????
Wow, im getting that :) Looks like they are really pushing people to get SOCOM!
Finally an official headset and the socom bundle ha im just going to buy that better price.
Heck yea I'm getting the Socom bundle. Its going to be SOOOO FUN online! KillZone2, Resistance 2, MGOline, Motor Sotrm 2, Little Big Planet, Gran Turismo 5 prologue, Haze, Playstation Home and SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH MORE. PS3 is the system becoming the online powerhouse. LMAO PS3 is going to have more people on PSN than XBL in not too much longer.
I will definately be getting the SOCOM bundle. This game is going to be great and the headset looks slick.
.. but this with Socom?!?! Wooooooooooooooot!!!!! I'm in!!!!!! That design just screams - CLASS!
when I bought my PS3 I bought a sweet little samsung Bluetooth. It works great although needs charging after one and a half hours. I got a PlayStation Eye before Christmas. Wanna know what? The voice chat works great, I tested it on Resistance and Motorstorm, everybody could hear me fine. Camera and voice chat in one for just 25 quid. All Im saying is consider it.
