Priced at 5,000 Yen, the Wireless Headset will be compatible with PS3 titles like Resistance 2, SOCOM: Confrontation, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift and other games that support online chat. SOCOM: Confrontation will be available in a bundle with the new peripheral when it’s released in Japan, also on October 30th.
The Wireless Headset automatically links to the PS3 via Bluetooth, but also comes supplied with a USB for wired use. Featuring a noise cancelling feature and ear hook type headset, the new PS3 peripheral will allow a maximum of eight hours of voice chat when fully charged.
PS3 users will need to download the latest system software update to use the new peripheral.
