TwistDock for the PS3, Adds more USB Ports and Keeps Things Neat

ChipChick: TwistDock is the perfect accessory for any PS3 owner. It is currently preparing to launch in the U.S. ( it already has in Europe) during E3. The TwistDock docks your PS3, organizes and keeps your gaming area neat, it easily connects all cables – including HDMI port to TV, and charges controllers for continuous play. There are also 4 additional USB ports for connecting more peripherals and 2 USB charging ports. The TwistDock retails for € 79,99 ($98.40). Unfortunately there is no word yet on what the official US price will be. (PS3)

after it turns into a centipede, or whatever there's a screen with the same thing.

@PSClan I have two, but only really use one at time. I only really need two, anyways, I mean I have one controller, a PSP, and a usb stick, but don;t need them all at once.

Thanks for posting the video.

"I can put my controllers in it, and while they are being charged they are not being touched by anything. That means I can stay 100% accurate throughout the whole game" The fuck does that mean?????

Why did they show that guy using an ipad at the end, next to a controller. What the hell was that???? That ad made no sense at all. I feel like I am taking crazy pills!!!

EDIT: I re-read my post, I don't mean to sound sarcastic sltPoisen, I really thank you. Even though I think the video was insane, if it was not for you posting it I would not have gotten to see it.

Got a question, do the Controllers charge when sitting on the back of the Twist Dock??

thats good enough for me
yoshiro  +   1503d ago
looks very cool...i might buy one...
Davoh  +   1503d ago
Yeah it looks awesome I might get one. Even though I have a PS3 with 4 usb ports already, you can never have enough ports =)
DarkSpawnClone  +   1503d ago
LOL ewwww any one ever see that nasty human centipede movie? lol this looks cool tho but wont work with my tv stands (i have 2 ps3's , one is the 250gb slim)
Crazyglues  +   1503d ago
$98 bucks for that thing, you can't be serious...
for $200 bucks I can get a whole stand for my Plasma with glass self's that will fit the PS3 & my Plasma just fine... Link - http://shop.bjs.com/Z-Line-...

They got to be kidding me... and for 5.99 you can buy a usb extender thing that turns the one usb into 4...

That PS3 stand is just way, way over priced.

yes its overpriced for sure...
I got this for £10 http://media.photobucket.co...

It gives me an extra USB port and lights up.
It even has the exact same finish as the PS3 so it looks as if it is one part.

One of my friends thought I had modded it :P
DarkSpawnClone  +   1503d ago
Z-Line FTW!

So it turns my PS3 into an insect like creature?? Not interested. That is unless this robo-insect can reduce my carbon foot print by feasting on human blood instead of using electricity.
karan8624  +   1503d ago
Haha, wow
That video was trippy as fuck
catguykyou  +   1502d ago
OK, this is retarded. The dock is kinda useful but that's not what is so retarded. WHY is this one of the top stories? There are hundreds of console accessories that come out every year and none of those are top stories. This isn't either. I just don't understand why.

Hot!
I always wondered why there is no USB ports on the back?
Is it compatible with phat ps3?
And this angled position, won't this throw bd-drive off balance?

Nope I've opened up one of the drives before to recover a disk, it is pretty solid in there. It's not like a regular disk tray.
rob6021  +   1503d ago
I really think Sony should add one port on the back now with Move coming out, I'm sure most would prefer not to have to wrap the cord around for the pseye.
wicko  +   1503d ago
"The TwistDock retails for €79,99 ($98.40). Unfortunately there is no word yet on what the official US price will be."

Umm.. that's quite expensive for a powered USB dock.
Theonik  +   1503d ago
There have been tons of things like this. Hell i have one on my 80Gb that adds Memory Card readers and 3 extra USBs (snaps at the front)
Another one I've seen is this (Pictured)
If the pricing on this is correct this is a massive rip-off.
@Wicko, yeah you're right. I saw a video of the drive working with a transparent casemod. Very cool drive it is.

Hmmm, I wonder how well the unit will cool on this thing with it turn upwards since it's pretty much been proven that leaving most consoles horizontal is best for cooling.
JustTheFactsMr  +   1503d ago
Very nice design. Like the thought that went into this.
jfrde63  +   1503d ago
I guess
You are pretty much left out if you have an original PS3 Phat... Oh well.
coolasj  +   1503d ago
if you have a phat you dont need this
my 60GB can stand on its side and already HAS 4 USB ports. if i really wanted to i would just use that random USB-Multi plug i have laying around.
Dom6390  +   1503d ago
if you go to the official website you see it works for all ps3 models actually
darkdoom3000  +   1503d ago
Yeah- look at bit the Ps3 is standing on, its extended forward- meaning you can put the fatty on there.
claterz  +   1503d ago
And you all said this was a prank -.- lol.
ceedubya9  +   1503d ago
I was ready to jump on this
But then I saw the price. If it really does end up anywhere close to that in the US, then I'm definitely passing. I do like it, though.
Rio-Hustla-Inc  +   1503d ago
This is great! I always desired to have USB ports in the back of my system.....
KillerPwned  +   1503d ago
I think its a waste of money, Sony didnt put lion batteries in their controllers just so that then you can buy another product to charge them on its what the ps3 is for. Then the Usb slots you can go onto a site like newegg and find a little tiny media hub that is even built for the ps3 that is $20 AND has a multi-media card reader in it.

I was just at bestbuy and they had a 3 port USB hub along with media card reader of SD,MS, and MD i think it was for $20. All in 1 device nice and small that would blend in with a ps3 slim perfectly.

I will say the device itself is really nice i do like it a lot. But that price is just to high.

That's the beauty of allowing 3rd party peripherals to be made for a system. Cheap options!! Unlike another company I know..
Ahmay  +   1503d ago
NYKO makes it
i have one
xtremeimport  +   1503d ago
i love it.
displaying it like a piece of art, looks awesome.
too bad they didnt make on for the fat ps3s.
KillerPwned  +   1503d ago
I liked that to about it how it displays your ps3.
Dom6390  +   1503d ago
it fits fat ps3s and slim ones :) its all good
Benitez201057   1503d ago | Spam
XabiTheHumble  +   1503d ago
Definitely need this.
K-Tuck  +   1503d ago
I'm probably alone in this, but that thing is sort of ugly. It definitely throws off the slim, chic look of the PS3 having a bunch of wires and lumps in plain sight.
karan8624  +   1503d ago
Looks like the Controller dock and Slim dock (both official peripherals) combined, with some USB ports put in

Not a bad idea though, yet still a very inspired design
Rhythmattic  +   1502d ago
I like it too...

Still , No ethernet connector on the base.. That , unfortunately makes it useless to me...

F Wi-Fi....

On that video the USB HUB(4 port) is optional. This means it will cost extra for the USB HUB. It looks like its not included with the dock.
Ven1000  +   1503d ago
I'd rather just get the Power Pyramid
I have 4 PS3 controllers anyway.

Horny  +   1503d ago
Im sure they will price it at around 50 in the US, or maybe 55 the price of a Dualshock.
Unfortunately Europe always gets ripped off, they pay more for games and everything.
dorron  +   1503d ago
Looks neat...when cables connecting PS3 and TV are not shown :-p
freezola75  +   1502d ago
Now the burning question is...
Is this Twistdock built for slim Ps3s only? I must've missed something or did they even mention for which types it supports....
JustTheFactsMr  +   1502d ago
supports fat and slim. There is a video on the twistdock site
