datel logoThis is either a ploy to get gamers to spend more money or a real attempt to provide 'made for X console' items. Either way Datel has released a host of PS3 specific peripherals that include a USB keyboard, a Bluetooth headset and, can you believe it, a USB headset! ([sarcasm])Wow these are all amazing product innovations from my point of view. I didn't even know you could connect this stuff to the USB port and I've never seen anyone using a mobile phone with a bluetooth headset, let alone connect one to some computer-based machine ([/sarcasm]).

Please do not misunderstand, I do like a wide range of Datel products, but when they make things that they say are especially for a console that has a standard USB port then I get a little upset because it is deceptive marketing in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying the products are bad, I just don't like the marketing tactics.

Well ok, so maybe the cords are longer or the colors are cooler or something. Anyway here is a look at the product lineup.

All these products will be in the shops soon, and can also be bought direct at or by calling 08456 010 015.

I really love the copy they provide on these items as well as the powerboard shot of the woman in a bra. Yes, buying the powerboard will probably get a woman to take her shirt off while fondling the keys, or not. No, she will not have sex with you, no she is not included in the purchase of the keyboard. It all reminds me of thos old RonCo commercials where every item he is using is the most amazing thing in the world.

My advice is do some comparison shopping before you just run out and buy something because you might be able to save money for more games or find a better product.
