Sony SOCOM PS3 Headset
Sony today prepped its PlayStation 3 audience with official details of its official Bluetooth headset. To be packed in with the retail copy of SOCOM Confrontation, the earpiece works with any game or software that supports voice chat on the console and includes extras that aren't always standard with most headsets for cellphones, including a mute button to prevent unintentional noise outside of normal use and a USB charging cradle to power the headset either from the PS3 or a computer.
The earpiece should also work outside of the PS3, though most details of the headset outside of its core features haven't been revealed by Sony. The company cautions that the headset is still a work in progress and could change before its release, which should be timed along with SOCOM and will receive both pack-in and stand-alone pricing closer to the game's launch date.
