PS3 Wireless Keypad Review

Review Horizon
30 November 2010
  • Conclusion: If you want a faster way to input text on your PS3, this keypad won’t disappoint. There are no major complaints here, other the rather high price (but we all know how the game console manufacturers are pricing their accessories, don’t we? Just remember the XBOX 360 wireless controller initially prices for $120 if I remember correctly). The design is nice, it fits the controller well and secure and it gives an impression of durability. Too bad it is not back-lit.
  • Pros: Nice design and integration with the existing controller, rechargeable / USB interface, wireless!!!, very good way to do a fast Netflix / Hulu search
  • Cons: somewhat high price, although not as expensive as Logitech stuff, touch pad sucks, 0

Review : Sony Wireless Keypad for PlayStation 3

  • Conclusion: If you really want to enter a lot of text on your PlayStation 3 for PlayStation Home or web browsing you really are better off getting a cheap USB keyboard and saving your money for an actual game. It's faster than using the on-screen virtual keyboard but not by much. Score: 37 QWERT Y did they make this keyboard so hard to use?

PS3 Wireless Keypad

  • Conclusion: Since I actively use HOME and chat through my PS3 console, having this keypad attachment is a welcome addition to my product library. While those are the main reasons to utilize a keypad or keyboard, with the way Sony is releasing innovative software for their console, who’s to say the wont release a game which utilizes the keypad in some way. Like I said before, this attachment will set you back $50, but at the end of the day you won’t regret the purchase.

Sony PS3 Wireless Bluetooth Keypad Review

  • Excerpt: Sore thumbs... you has them. Text chatting, mouse scrolling, and typing into a search bar are all a big pain in the arse when you are peripheral-less. You want to surf the web on your PS3, chat in the Home beta, or maybe just enter in text during a game without having to use your face buttons. Thankfully Sony took it upon themselves to solve many of the problems that are associated with those things in one simple solution: The Sony Wireless Keypad.
  • Pros: you can't stand choosing letters with a controller
  • Cons: you don't have a ps3

PS3 wireless keypad; worth it?

PS3 Attitude
12 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Neither of these issues gets in the way of how well the unit works overall. The Wireless Keypad certainly makes the whole process of showing everyone what a literary genius looks like without getting in the way of a good fragging.
