161w 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."
