Although no official details about the PS3 wireless keypad's pricing or launch date (beyond "late November") have been released, Amazon.com
is shedding a little light on the situation. The online retailer currently has the peripheral listed at $49.99 with a ship date of Nov. 30.
Although the date may be a placeholder, an Amazon representative informs us, "Pricing details come from our vendors. So that is the price that Sony gave us." Once again, Sony hasn't made any official statements about pricing, but retailers seem to be getting some details.
A recent poll on PS3 Fanboy
showed that 46% of responders would pay no more than $20. Only 4% of participants would actually pay the current listed price for the peripheral.
