SOCOM: Confrontation’s Spiffy New Bluetooth Headset


If you hadn’t noticed already, I’ve got SOCOM: Confrontation heavy on my brain tonight (well this morning now technically). Not sure why, those new gameplay videos just kinda caught my eye and then all of a sudden I’m hungrily on the prowl for more. This next find is probably the coolest too. When the game launches later this year, the boxed retail version will come with a Bluetooth headset packed in.

As you can see, it’s not some cheapy cellphone headset like the one that came with Warhawk. Oh no, this one is being specifically designed for gaming. In fact, it’s been given Sony’s seal of approval as THE official Bluetooth headset for the PS3 and will be sold separately as such. The headset is currently still in its “prototype phase” but at the same time is “remarkably complete” with only minor refinement left to do on the ergonomics and such. As has been revealed thus far, the headset will feature a mute button and a handy USB docking cradle for recharging the battery and general storage, with other “PlayStation-exclusive” still being worked in. Once these additional features get nailed down, I’ll let you know. But for now flip through the following gallery for shots of the headset from all angles.
