Personally I'm not big on accessories like this unless they are official. But this could be cool for those who really miss the further features.

I'm exactly the same, never by unofficial gear bUt this could be my exception.

HappyGaming2277d ago

I would disagree just because I got an unofficial stand with blue LED lights for my phatty PS3 back in 2008 and it has been awesome...

A lot of times, your cable, satellite, or in my case, Verizon FiOS box will have a USB port in the front. I just plug my PS3 controller in that to charge, no running the PS3 required.

now that is just terrible lol who would buy this crap...sega CD explansion pack haha

They mean like sega cd in form factor. The expansion is a controller ay that has a sd card slot and 3 more usb slot. Almost making it the same size as a phat. I'd be interested had I not already had a nice pyramid quad dock.

This has been available to buy since earlier this year. I should know as i already own one. Its a fantastic piece of kit. It charges and stores my controllers plus it allows me to use my memory cards.

Seriously, this can't have just been revealed when i've owned one for months now!

'similar to the Sega CD expansion for the Sega Genesis.'

Now that's a great way of putting people off. xD

Godmars2902277d ago

I'm missing why a Sega CD reference is being made at all.

It is just a charge/storage box, right?

CynicalVision2277d ago

It looks similar to the Sega CD add-on, an ugly product being forced to fit onto the side of the original console.

"The Duracell Extender is multifunctional as it offers slots for SD cards and memory sticks as well as three additional USB ports. "

Looks like it would make it over heat but it is cool makes it look huge.

Neko_Mega2277d ago

Hey you got the same picture as me!!!

Anyways this be cool to have, if you have the space for it.

StanSmith2277d ago (Edited 2277d ago )

Doesn't make it overheat at all. I've owned one for months now. Not had a single problem with it.

Also to those who disagreed with drstabwounds. Congrats. He is actually correct. This doesn't need the PS3 to be turned on to charge your pads as it does have it's own power supply!

MultiConsoleGamer2277d ago

Now your PS3 can really look like a coffin!

Kinda reminds me of the controller holder on the Atari 5200

DarkFantasy2277d ago

LOL i didn't notice until i read your comment XD

bwazy2277d ago

awiseman2277d ago
