PS3 Wireless Keypad Priced and Dated

The price and release date for Sony’s upcoming PS3 Wireless Keypad has finally been revealed (only for the North American market though). The device will be priced at $50 and will be launched on November 30.

The keypad will mount onto a DualShock 3 or Sixaxis controller and have two shortcut keys that allow you to switch to message boxes and other communication fields. The surface area can also be toggled to use it as a touchpad, that will allow you to control the movement of the on-screen cursor directly.

Communication with the console will be done through Bluetooth 2.0, and the device will have its own rechargeable Li-ion battery built-in. The price point is a bit on the higher side if you’d ask me, and another deterrent might be the placement of the keypad. I mean placing the keypad over the PS3 controller seems like a bad design idea, but I guess I’ll just hold my skepticism until I get my hands on it and try it out for myself.

Those of you who’re really looking forward to it can pre-order it from Amazon.
