Announced by Sony at Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany, is a new PS3 configuration. The limited edition Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune PS3 Bundle will include a 160 GB PS3, a copy of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, a voucher to download PAIN from the PSN, and a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller. The 160 GB PS3 is taking the same route as the current 80 GB model, and will not include PS2 backwards compatibility. The Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune PS3 Bundle is set to be released in November for a retail price of $499.99.
Also announced is a Wireless Keypad attachment, similar to the Chatpad for Microsoft’s Xbox 360. The new accessory will attach to the top of PS3 controllers and feature a full QWERTY keypad as well as a feature that turns the key area into a touch pad for cursor navigation. The accessory also has shortcut keys for quick access to your friends list and messages. The Wireless Keypad makes use of Bluetooth, so you will not only have the ability to use it with the PS3, but also with mobile phones or other devices with Bluetooth that support it. A price has not been announced, but the Wireless Keypad will be sold starting in late November.
