Sony Announces New Playstation 3 Accessories

PS3 owners can expect some new peripherals this holiday season. These come in the form of the Wireless Keypad with Bluetooth we reported on back in August and an AC adapter that can charge the DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller, SIXAXIS controller, Bluetooth Headset and Wireless Keypad.

PS3 Wireless Keypad
The Wireless Keypad is designed for use with the PS3 but also can be used with any other Bluetooth devices that support a keyboard functionality. Retail cost for the Wireless Keypad is listed as $49.99 US and will be available in stores in the first week of December.

PS3 AC Adapter
The AC adapter has the ability to simultaneously charge any two compatible devices through the USB connector and without having to turn on the PS3 system. It will also charge the PSP-2000 and PSP-3000. The retail cost for the AC adapter is listed as $24.99 US. This will be available in stores starting the second week of December.

Price for it is pretty high but it looks promising.Also is the blue tooth headset out in Canada?

While this is great news. Does this mean that it just isn't possible to charge the Dualshock 3 & Six Axis while the System is in Standby?

I can see this AC adapter being useful for the Sony Headset but I thought that it had already come with an AC adapter.

I hope they can come out with a Firmware update that would allow the DS3 & Six Axis to be charged while the PS3 is in Standby. I have enough things plugged in as is. I don't have anymore room.

I wanna know, what I can do with the keypad.

Are there games for it or is it just for easy-chating?

I think I'll have to buy the keypad. I really can't stand typing using a dualshock controller.

They're really pushing the wireless keyboard attachment inside Playstation Home, and I can see why. Typing with the controller sucks hard.
