    The last major hardware announcement is a new Bluetooth wireless keypad accessory for the PlayStation 3. The PS3 Wireless Keypad, designed to fit onto a DualShock 3 or Sixaxis gamepad, will give players an easy way to enter text on the PS3. Expect the PS3 Wireless Keypad to arrive this November.

    I just like having a normal keyboard, plus I can use my computer from the couch with they keyboard so it serves a dual purpose. I haven't tried yet but I think I can get it to work on the 360 as well.

    The Sony buttons still seem bigger than the XBOX keypad and I have no trouble with that.

    What will be a factor for me is the balance of the controller with the keypad on. I am so use to the weight of the keypad on the 360 controller I find it annoying to play with one that does not have the attachment on :)

    sony PS3 Bluetooth Wireless Keypad

    Sony unveiled a wireless keypad peripheral that attaches to the top of the PlayStation 3 controller (presumably into the mini-USB port). The keypad also features a "touchpad mode" for mouse input.The Wireless Kepad includes a mode that turns the key area into a touchpad, allowing users to control an on-screen cursor with their fingertips, tapping to activate a link. The keypad also features two short-cut buttons, enabling quick access to the XMB's "Friends" icon and the "Message Box." The pad also can be paired with other Bluetooth devices

    Okay so it's November and I'm on the prowl for my PS3 Wireless Keypad it was supposed to ship so you could use it with Sony Home and some games which have now released namely Little Big Planet. So where is it. :confused:

    Do I have to wait till the end of the month/year.

    $49.99 US that works out to roughly $3568 Aus :p
    Might wait till the Aus release and see what price they put on it

    My guess $79-$99

    My son is watching the pricing on Play-Asia.
    They are listed at $49.90 USD +$5.90 USD delivery / 0.65 exchange = $85.85 AUD.

    Just be careful as they have Asia and USA versions of the keyboard.

    How many would be interested in buying this from Games Warehouse.

    Are you talking wireless keyboard or wireless keypad.

    We are chasing the wireless keypad and it's not supposed to be out till the end of the month.

    Im not too far from games warehouse Ancient... and i go there on the odd occasion to get games....especially now i know that if i want a game they dont stock i can email them and they will order it in from overseas. I got to get one off them on friday i got ordered in a while back but was unable to get there to collect due to combination of work and bills.

    If you do go the games warehouse path lemme know as I am considering getting that lil keypad for mine too. I could grab them all at once if you wish. I assume you still know how to get to that place you dropped the laptop off to ages ago to pick them up if you choose that option
