Logitech Harmony Adapter for Playstation 3 now available, Guitar Hero Wireless Controller on its way
I'm a huge Logitech Harmony fan. There isn't another remote control brand available that I've come across that is as easy-to-use, while still offering remarkably comprehensive features. If the Harmony has one downside though, it's that so far it hasn't been able to turn on the Playstation 3. Why? The PS3 doesn't understand infrared signals. But it does offer Bluetooth.
That's what the new Logitech Harmony Adapter for Playstation 3 is for. The Harmony Adapter, which work with any Harmony remote, converts those strange IR signals into readable Bluetooth signals which can be used to manipulate all 51 PS3 controls. The best part is the low price. Right now the Logitech Harmony Adapter for Playstation 3 is only $59.99 from Amazon, or combined with the Logitech Harmony One Advanced remote, an even better $241.
Meanwhile, PS3 and PS2 Guitar Hero-playing gamers might also be thrilled to hear the Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller for Guitar Hero is expected to be available later this month. Featuring a wood neck and body, guitar frets and a rosewood fingerboard, the Wireless Guitar Controller for Guitar Hero is built to work as a typical high-end guitar. It works up to 30 feet away from the PS3 and has hundreds of hours of battery life. The controller will be available this month in the US for $199.99 and will ship to Europe in June.
