It was only a matter of time before Sony got one of these out and i’m surprised that I actually want one. The official Sony PS3 controller-keypad is on it’s way this winter. The new keypad will clip onto the DualShock 3/SixAxis controller and will help with in game messaging. internet browsing and will also feature a touchpad feature for mouse input. SCEE Presidnent David Reeves said that the new keypad could also be used in future videogame development.

The keypad will ship in eight different configurations to cope with the ammount of languages. Click the jump for another image and more deets.

Shortly after announcing this Sony dropped some more details on the keypad. The peripheral will hit worldwide this winter with the yanks getting it first in November with the rest of the world (that means Europe and Japan) getting it before the end of the year.

The keypad includes two shortcut keys for access to the friends list and message box in game. A touchpad option allows users to use the surface of the keypad as a touchpad for use during internet browsing on the PS3.

There’s been no price announced yet, but i’m expecting it to be around £20.
