Motorola's new X205 Gaming Headset lets you call the shots from the couch just like Bill Cowher does from the sidelines. Based on the Motorola headset worn by NFL coaches, the X205 ($TBA) works with football video games like Madden, allowing you to use your voice to call plays and scream at others online. It features a noise canceling microphone and premium full mono ear cup, and is compatible with both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2.
We've been waiting to bring this one to you for a long time. The Sony PlayStation 3 (starts at $500; Nov. 17) is one helluva mean gaming machine. Powered by the Cell processor, it features an advanced RSX graphics chip, a 20 or 60GB hard drive, Bluetooth-enabled wireless controllers, 1080p output, and a Blu-Ray drive that appears to cost almost as much all by itself as it does shoved in the belly of this beast. With a handful of launch titles confirmed, we're already preparing our schedules for a lot of "alone time" in front of our TV this Winter.
Awesome. RetroZone is selling old-school NES controllers that have been upgraded with USB connectors so you can use them on your PC or Mac. You can choose from the original NES controller ($30), NES Advantage ($35), or NES Max ($28). But for the true geeks, you can also pick up a PowerGlove ($70), PowerPad ($60), or Super Nintendo Mouse ($26). RetroZone also sells do-it-yourself upgrade kits for your own controller ($17).
