137w ago - Similar to the PlayStation 3 Slim, today Kotaku.com (linked above) reports that the PS3 Bluetooth Headset is also going slim with the price remaining the same as the original model, later confirmed by Sony Peripherals Product Manager Anand Agarwal.
To quote: "A reader sent us this promo sleeve for the PlayStation 3 Bluetooth headset earlier this week, which now appears to be sporting a slimmer, sleeker design than the original model.
Not only has the ear clasp been made thinner, but the front buttons and indicators have been cleaned up too. The material also clearly states that this is an official Sony product, not a third-party offering.
The feature set on the back of the box has no new features compared to the existing version, so it appears to be a simple aesthetic upgrade for a device that was looking a little, well, clunky as we push on towards 2011.
As the box says, it'll be priced at $50, which is the same as the existing model."

142w ago - Today PSGroove via French site Logic-Sunrise.com has posted that the PS JailBreak Cloner x3Max (forerly known as x3JailBreak) is now offering what's called the x3Switch for the PS3 Slim.
To quote: "The x3Max team has noticed an inconvenience PS3 Slim users are facing. Unlike PS3 Fat users, Slim users must unplug their cord every time they want to JailBreak their console.
This is due to the lack of an on off switch on the back of Slim models. However, that inconvenience is eliminated with the arrival of the x3Switch.
The x3Switch is a small device with an on-off switch, that plugs into your PS3 Slim and your power cord. This allows the user to turn off their Slim, prior to JailBreaking, without the need to unplug the cord.
The product is going on sale for a suggested retail price of $19.90 and is shipping to retailers now."
