Interesting remote now available for PS3 from Hyperkin

by: Chad -
Since I just picked up my PS3 this past weekend, I'm only scratching the surface of how versatile the machine is.  Hyperkin has developed a device that appeals to me on a variety of levels.  It's called the PS3 Text Link Remote.  It has a sliding QWERTY keyboard, the keys of a game controller, and the functionality of a remote control.  It has a USB charging cable and comes in at the price of $39.99. 

A picture is worth a thousand words so check it out.  If you are interested, find out more on Hyperkin's web site.  I'm interested and will probably put this on my wish list so I don't forget about it.
