Logitech PS3 Peripherals
Logitech today strengthened its PlayStation 3 accessory lineup with a pair of chat peripherals. The MediaBoard Pro enhances the peripheral maker's wireless keyboard with a set of media keys that streamline accessing the PS3's home menu, music and video controls, and web browser shortcuts. It also comes in a glossy black that matches the Sony console, Logitech says. The scrolling trackpad and notebook-style thin keys carry over from the original MediaBoard. Logitech plans a release in October for $80.
The company has also entered the realm of PS3 headsets with the Cordless Vantage Headset. Sharing Bluetooth with the keyboard and the PS3's own gamepads, the communicator has a uniquely ambidextrous layout that can flip the earpiece to listen through either ear without affecting ergonomics. Wearers can selectively switch on active noise cancellation and use the headset with games for 12 hours before requiring a recharge. The Vantage arrives in November for $80.
