US PS3 peripheral pricing

Extra controllers for $50.

As well as unveiling the launch line-up for PlayStation 3, Sony also used its US Gamer's Day event this week to confirm peripheral pricing.

Extra Sixaxis controllers, the company said, would go for US$ 49.99. The Bluetooth-based Sixaxis will have a 20-metre wireless range, and charges its batteries using a supplied mini-USB cable.

Blu-ray remote controls are due to go on sale in December for US$ 24.99, while those of you looking to transfer across your PlayStation 2 save-games will be able to grab the adapter required to do that for US$ 14.99.

Sony also said that its official HDMI cable, which isn't bundled with the console itself, even though both the 20GB and 60GB releases now include it, would go for US$ 49.99. That's obviously a lot, but since you can use any old HDMI cable you should be able to save some money by shopping around.
